Most Durable Floor for Children and Pets?
LESLIE: Mark in Iowa is in the market for some new flooring, because he’s got two big dogs. What can we do for you?
MARK: Yeah, I just had a question about – I have two boxer dogs and actually, a three-year-old child. And just wondering the best hardwood floor, laminate or cork or whatever – what’s my best option?
TOM: Yeah, I’d have to go with laminate floor. I brought up all my kids on a laminate floor and it’s been – and a dog – and it’s been very, very durable. It’s performed very well.
TOM: With the exception of a couple of chips over the years, never had a problem with it. I think laminate floor is very durable and the good news is that it’s actually gotten a lot better since I installed it. You used to have to glue the boards together; now it’s all sort of locked together. And the colors and patterns are phenomenal.
