Rising wood prices open doors for laminate flooring sales. I was reading a good article on laminate flooring and how it is trending more these days than natural hardwood products, as hardwood prices are on the rise it is opening the door for more wood laminate flooring sales. Here is part of the article and click the link below to read the entire story.

” After 19 years of being confined primarily to the residential remodel market, laminate flooring sales are getting a major boost from the builder and commercial markets due to rising wood costs, said industry insiders.

“There’s not a builder presentation that I go to now that laminate flooring isn’t automatically built into the conversation,” said Dan Natkin, director of Mannington’s wood and laminate business. “Builder is the mostly rapidly expanding market for laminate in the U.S. right now. We are seeing a huge surge in builder specifications for laminate flooring.”

Fueling laminate’s market expansion is the recent climb in wood prices due to increased demand. Prices have increased nearly 20 percent over the last six months.

“Industries around the world are drawing on U.S. wood and the prices keep going up. It’s getting hard to keep up with demand for wood floors and there are only more houses on the way. This is an incredible opportunity for laminate flooring,” said Bruce Zwicker, president and CEO, Haines.

Laminate’s expansion within the builder market is not limited to tract housing having penetrated the custom-built, upscale home market as well, according to dealers.”

Tile Sales and Installations 

Also with rising prices of wood flooring, tile sales and installations are on the rise in the Phoenix and Glendale AZ areas. Ceramic tile has always been an extremely popular flooring choice for both homeowners and commercial installations. Because ceramic tile is available in a large variety of sizes and styles that feature rich colors and textures that will complement any residential or commercial office interior or exterior decor.
