Engineered Hardwood stability

Hi, I'm remodeling my room I'm in an electric wheelchair and I have a dog, I'm looking at doing wood but I'm on a concrete slab I like a tiger wood does the engineered stuff scratch easily I read some reviews on lumber liquidators and some people said there's did, or does anybody have any ideas or should I just go with tile?

Not sure of what all your concerns would be with scratching or the source(s) thereof but tile would be a safe bet. You can get large tiles with square edges these days and they can be installed with tight grout lines that would take most of the thump out of moving around on the surface with a wheelchair.

Tile would outlive wood by far...and then some.

Tile, if installed right, will outlive ANY other floorcovering.
