Re: Wooden Pergo floating floor in their Escape..
I put Pergo in our bedroom and wish I hadn't. While it looks good and can withstand a little bit of water, it has a few drawbacks. First, if water does seep between the joints, it can swell and create ridges. Second, its LOUD. Dog nails clatter and click on the flooring. Third, it's pretty slippery.
The cork flooring seems like a good compromise, but we've avoided it as we worried about dog nails tearing it up. If I did anything, I'd consider either sheet vinyl or that peel-and-stick vinyl stuff. So far, we're okay with the flooring supplied. With the dogs (three good-sized, active mixed-breed rescues) and the dirt and mud we bring in, we need a flooring that can handle it.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.
