I need your advise. I had bamboo flooring installed in our family/great room in October - it is a tongue and grove floor that was floated. We have had two problems with it: Within 6 months the joints (where the board meet) are pulling apart and it is scratching badly from the dogs toenails. At this point the company is talking about replacing the floor and giving us the option of going with bamboo again (but a different type of installation) or changing products completely. Now to my question for those of you who have hard floors - what do you have and how do you like it? We have two labs that are indoors and grandkids. I went with wood because I liked the look and care over carpet but am not happy with how the bamboo has worn. The flooring company suggested laminate as an alternative. I loved the look of the bamboo but since it isn't wearing well I'm not sure what to go with. Any ideas?
