Hybrid Flooring Vs. Laminate Flooring

Hybrid Flooring VS. Laminate Water Resistancy

There are several differences between hybrid flooring and laminate flooring but the main ones are Water Resistance, Durability, Cost/ Price, Thickness.

Hybrid Flooring Vs. Laminate Flooring: Water Resistance

Being water-resistant is the most important difference between hybrid flooring and laminate which makes hybrid flooring the first choice for wet areas as it is 100% waterproof.

Hybrid Flooring Vs. Laminate Flooring: Durability

Durability is the next major factor which makes the laminate flooring better than hybrid flooring due to its Aluminum Oxide wear layer.

Hybrid Flooring Vs. Laminate Flooring: Cost/ Price

Price is another important factor, especially in the investment properties which again makes laminate flooring a better option due to its better pricing compared to the hybrid. Normally cost of installation of both are the same. You just might need to spend a little bit extra on the laminate floor as it needs a better even subfloor compared to the hybrid option. Reason is due to the hybrid planks being more flexible compared to laminate boards it can take the shape of its subfloor if there is a minor unevenness!

Hybrid Flooring Vs. Laminate Flooring: Thickness

In a flooring project thickness of new floor is important as it would be better to have it flush or at least less difference against the existing tile or carpet in the bathroom, kitchen and beds and for apartments to not hit the entrance door which is a fire door and trimming it would not be the easiest thing to do. hybrid flooring core i.e. excluding underlay and wear layer starts from 4mm up to 7mm. At the moment the thickest hybrid flooring in Australia’s market is Australian Native Resiplank Hybrid Flooring which is 9.7mm thick including the underlay and the wear layer. Laminate flooring thickness, on the other hand, starts from 8mm up to 12 mm normally. But there is a 14mm laminate flooring made in Swiss called Krono Swiss Aquastop which is nearly waterproof for 72 hours!
