Northwest Trends Ravenna

Natural wood looks combined with premium strength and resistance

Laminate Wood Flooring 

Wood flooring options such as hardwood are popular in home settings because they combine natural style with strength. In fact, nothing seems to add value to a home like a hardwood floor. But, although hardwood’s beauty is unquestioned, it isn’t the most durable flooring option. Fortunately, we at Wrucks Carpet One offer a selection of Ravenna laminate flooring from Northwest Trends. Ravenna laminate looks exactly like real hardwood, but it’s durable enough for even the busiest of settings.

How is Ravenna laminate more durable than hardwood? It has a thick 12mm construction, so the surface is resistant to almost all scratches and scuffs. As a result, the floors do not need to be refinished like hardwood. Furthermore, Ravenna
laminate is strong enough to handle heavy foot traffic and other external stresses. Hardwood, on the other hand, doesn’t offer this same dimensional stability. 

In addition, Ravenna laminate is better-suited for humid conditions. Whereas hardwood planks typically expand and contract when exposed to humidity, Ravenna laminate planks will remain solid. Ravenna planks can actually withstand up to 60% relative humidity, while most hardwoods are made to withstand no more than 30-35% humidity. Also, given its strength and stability, Ravenna laminate floors can be installed over most radiant heating systems.

Ravenna laminate flooring features an embossed-in-register and wire-brushed finish, so its surface feels exactly like real hardwood. The texturing even seems to follow the wood grains! So, it’s nearly impossible to discern between Ravenna laminate and real hardwood.
