New Floors!

Installers are here putting in my new vinyl plank savannah-proof floors. The boys are out on the catio on a beautiful sunny day and they're itching to get in the house to help the installers.

So, water and cat barf do not damage it?
It's waterproof. Acidic material would stain the surface if left for hours, I think, but this stuff is pretty tough. I looked at a lot of brands and chose a relatively new one -- Core Tech -- because the vendor has it installed in commercial businesses around town so I could take a look at how it held up over time and in heavy foot traffic.

The other thing I love about it is the construction. There is a cork layer on the very bottom to help with sound absorption and hide imperfections in the underlayment. Then comes a layer made of limestone, virgin PVC, wood and bamboo dust which does not shrink or contract. Then comes the waterproof vinyl. I didn't want any transition strips between rooms and that 2nd layer means I'll have a seamless smooth floor throughout the entire house. The exceptions are where it meets a carpeted room and where it meets the foyer floor which is ceramic tile and a bit thicker.

Thanks! I'll be building in a few years and am looking for options on top of a concrete slab. I love wood but SWFLA doesn't seem to appreciate it. Looks Great. Just might work!
