Traditionally, laminate has been considered a cheap-end option, an affordable material that won’t add much value to the property. However, with the newest technologies Formica or laminate countertops in Fort Pierce have grown to be a good option for a high-end look.
In the latest years, laminate has come a long way both in design and in durability. While a few decades ago laminate resembled a sheet of plastic so much that many people actually believe it’s made of plastic (it’s not), nowadays Formica high-pressure laminate can resemble granite, marble or any type of natural stone for half the price.
Aside from their beauty, laminate countertops also have other advantages. According to the laminate you buy, they can last between 10 and 20 years. They are very easy to clean as well; just make sure you don’t use abrasive products.
Additionally, laminate is an excellent choice for places of high traffic. Floors and countertops made of laminate are resistant to scratches and stains. They are as scratch-resistant as granite, as heat-resistant as quartz, and more stain-resistant than either.
However, that doesn’t mean that laminate countertops won’t scratch or stain at all. Once they do, they are difficult to fix, to the point of having a reputation of being impossible to repair.
