Laminate vs engineered?
We've made an offer on a house that needs a lot of work. I'm trying to make some basic decisions so I can put together a budget. We don't like carpet (it even has carpet in the bathrooms -- ew!). It's a tri-level. I'd like to put hardwood on the upper floors, but the ground level master is on a slab. The dogs will probably be using that room for access to the yard. Would an engineered hardwood or a laminate be better? Some of the new laminates are pretty nice looking.
