If selling is not on the&nbsp;near horizon and you want&nbsp;to spruce up your home for yourself then by all means do it but in the long run it won't give your home much more value.&nbsp; The trouble with laminates is when they start to&nbsp;wear out you really can't do anything to fix them. With a real wooden floor&nbsp;you can sand them down and start over.&nbsp; This is why real wood is usually more money than the laminate, plus the real&nbsp;flooring is more labour intensive&nbsp;in putting down.&nbsp;<br/>&nbsp;&nbsp;As far as your value increasing it might and it all depends on what similar houses in your area have for flooring, concrete, carpet, plywood, real wood, tile or laminate?&nbsp;&nbsp; Trouble is what you love someone else might loathe.<br/>&nbsp;Good luck Mon, 07 Jan 2013 19:21:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/will-laminate-flooring-increase-my-homes-value/473466/ 2013-01-07T19:21:00Z It all depends on a combination&nbsp;of&nbsp;factors.&nbsp;What ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/will-laminate-flooring-increase-my-homes-value/473466/ It all depends on a combination&nbsp;of&nbsp;factors.&nbsp;What is&nbsp;your house in Fontana? ie where is it&nbsp;located, how big is it, what is the current condition, etc.&nbsp; I have sold a lot of property out in Fontana over the years, and I have seen that city change so much in some areas it boggles my mind.<br/><br/>If you haven't already chosen a Realtor I would be more than happy to list--and sell--your home.&nbsp; I am actually working with a buyer for Fontana this/next month once they gather up their prequalification documentation. Maybe I can put something together if you are interested?<br/><br/>Best wishes and good luck Mon, 07 Jan 2013 19:18:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/will-laminate-flooring-increase-my-homes-value/473466/ 2013-01-07T19:18:00Z I'd say no in most cases ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/will-laminate-flooring-increase-my-homes-value/473466/ I'd say no in most cases unless your flooring now is dirty, outdated or strongly colored. Some segments of the market like laminate, but some really hate it.
