3 Reasons Why HERF Is a Better Flooring Material at HomeFeb 09, 2012 14:59 SGT
HERF (High end resilient flooring) is made of durable pure virgin vinyl material instead of wood and it is another alternative for those who would like to go for ‘wooden’ feel for their flooring at a lower cost.
Resilient flooring would be highly recommended for consumers who are afraid and concern of the termite issues especially properties near forested areas. As it does not consist of any wood materials in it, the flooring would not be attacked by termites or any insect agents at all as compared to parquet and low quality laminate floor.
In terms of water issues, high end resilient flooring would deem as a better choice as it is 100% waterproof compare to traditional laminate and parquet floor which is water resistant and can only withstand water for up to a few hours before it seeps through the gaps and causes swelling or deform under the influence of water. Therefore, HERF is pretty much suitable for commercial places such as offices and retail shops as well as living and bedroom areas for residential units. Wet areas that are highly exposed to constant moisture such as kitchen can also be laid without having to worry about problems when it comes in contact with water.
HERF requires less or zero maintenance and can be wet mopped unlike parquet or laminate flooring. On top of that, a lifetime warranty on the product is provided to boost consumers’ confidence in selecting it for their flooring.
Better Stability and Almost “Sound Proof”
Last but not least, high end resilient flooring serves as a stronger and more durable material as compared to laminate flooring or parquet. When you step on HERF, it provides more stability as the feel would not be as hollow and ‘loud’ as laminate floor due to the “floating” system. What it means to the home owners especially the young parents with babies and young children, should you wake up in the wee hours of the day, the sound of your footsteps at home will be so quiet that will not wake up while they are soundly at their rooms.
Hence therefore, while comparing the properties of these 3 flooring materials (HERF, parquet & traditional laminate flooring); HERF would serve as a better option for the home owners in the long run.
