Do you not realize how rediculous it is to be making this argument with me; the guy who builds furniture.
I am trying not to be an ass, but your opinion is based in a biased perception of quality. Plywood and things made if plywood have been around since ancient Egypt, maybe it's time to come to terms that they do have applications and they do outperform solid wood in certain circumstance.
I'm not arguing, I've agreed. Sure, there are circumstances where ply is more appropriate, I guess I needed to spell it out. I happen to prefer a solid wood floor, that's all.
I like the extra flex a sub-floor provides when you walk on it. Wood on concrete feels hard as hell.
Anyone have laminate flooring in their house? We really need to rip out the six year old carpet (builder grade stuff that came with the house) as well as some vinyl in the kitchen and replace it all. It wouldn't be worth it to use real or engineering hardwood, as I'd probably never recoup the cost in this area (plus we have two dogs and it scratches easily). So far we've looked at a few different kinds but I don't think any of them have really set my world on fire. We've been looking at AC4 rated stuff, 5" to 6.5" width, in the $4+/sq ft range,
Have you looked into cork flooring? I prefer it to laminate and have friends with dogs that it has held up very well for.
