What flooring?


So I see a lot of hatred to laminate flooring on here, so my question for you is:

If someone needed new flooring, do not want carpet, have pets so have to be scratch resistant, and roughly trying to spend a $3-$4 sq foot. Oh yea no tile because they donít like the feeling.

For durability and ease of maintenance sheet vinyl is all that would be on the hard surface in our house. Resale, don't make me laugh. The new owners can install whatever they like.

Engineered hardwood. The bottom is basically plywood, so it does not expand/contract with humidity much (or at all). If you are buying less expensive flooring, check the specs on the finish --- seems its pretty common today for any half decent engineered to have six or more coats of UV cured urethane on top with upper layer with aluminum oxide dust for good scratch resistance. One note on price --- cheaper engineered hardwood will have lots of short pieces, better quality hardwood gets you longer pieces (longer pieces look better IMHO).

Vinyl plank aka LVT. Goes in like laminate but solid vinyl so it wear much better and is impervious to water. Easy DIY install. In a bathroom I'd use sheet vinyl.
