A Comparison of Floor Durability

As a Nashville business owner who needs to redecorate a facility or is starting from scratch, one of the toughest decisions is choosing what kind of floor is best for you. Ultimately, you want a floor that is both durable and professional looking. With so many choices of styles, brands, colors and designs, it's understandable how overwhelming the entire process can be.


Ozburn-Hessey is always readily available to answer any questions about floor durability and what types of products would best fit your needs. If you are an art gallery owner in Franklin, a manager at a boutique shop in Berry Hill or anything in between, Ozburn-Hessey is here to help.  Here are just a few comparisons between hardwoods and laminates to give you an idea on where to start.


  • Affordable
  • Easy to clean/maintain
  • Resists stains


  • Wear-resistant
  • Long-lasting
  • Can be refinished

Though both have their pros, both also have cons. Though laminate is affordable, it cannot be refinished and the floors can get scratched. On the contrary, wood is very susceptible to moisture and can shrink and expand over time.

Durability is key throughout your floor buying process. Not only is it important for the daily wear and tear while Nashvillians come and go in your business, but it's also key for professionalism and cleanliness.
