Please help decide between ....
Hello Everyone. I am trying to decide on engineered wood flooring for a home in Sunny San Diego. I have a 2yr old so I want the floor to have the best dent resistence. No pets and no shoes are to be worn on it. I am more concerned with dents than scratches. The price is exactly the same and both will be sourced locally from different places. The Garrison product will be sourced directly thru the Manufacture facility in San Diego and the Ark flooring will be sourced from a local wholesaler. I have narrowed down my choices of engineered flooring to the ones listed below.
Garrison Flooring Maple Cappuccino Carbonized
Pros: 4mm Wear Layer and 7 ply
Cons: Softer Wood (worried about dents)
Ark Flooring Brown IPE
Pros: Harder wood species (not sure if it matters as much since its engineered)
Cons: 2mm Wear Layer and only 5 ply
Any and all input on these 2 products would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for looking :)
