Looking for an answer - Is laminate considered “greener” than hardwood?

Thats a tough one. Hardwood often emits more VOC after installation from wood preservatives or finshing product. Some laminate now has water based finishes as well. There are few laminates that are made with FSC certified wood materials though.

Thanks. I did find a laminate that was made with FSC certified wood, so I went with that.

A hardwood floor is made out of solid wood and a laminate is a product that is made using any of several materials and methods that has layer of material applied at the top of the surface and is made of highly density base.Laminate flooring is composed of four type of layers one of these is design layers which defines the look of floor which looks very natural.

Hope this can help you!!!
