Pet-Friendly Engineered Hardwood Flooring
If you own pets, especially dogs, you know the damage they can do to your floors with their nails. And, of course, there are times when they don’t quite make it outside before doing their business. But, HydroGuard engineered hardwood floors can take it. With 100% waterproof hardwood, pet accidents are no concern. Plus, we manufacture HydroGuard with three of the hardest wood species — hickory, maple, and walnut — to help resist scratches. You can also select a wire-brushed hardwood finish that helps hide scratches. In addition, the aluminum oxide finish seals the deal so you can enjoy scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, dent-resistant floors backed by a 50-Year Residential Finish Warranty.
Real Wood Floors You Can Install Anywhere in Your Home
Engineered hardwood’s chief advantage over solid hardwood is its water resistance. But, we’ve taken that to the next level by making HydroGuard 100% waterproof. So now, you can install real wood floors without concerns about water damage. Just think, you can add the rich character of hardwood to any room in your house, even your bathroom.
Harder woods like oak or hickory helps resist scratches and improve your floor’s wear. Unfortunately, they aren’t great for noise and can be hard underfoot if you stand on them for a lengthy time. Sure, some areas rugs will soften things. But, HydroGuard waterproof hardwood includes a 1.5mm pad that helps absorb sound to make your floors quieter. At the same time, the padding makes the engineered hardwood flooring more resilient, so it’s softer underfoot for added comfort.
