Bruce Dundee Plank? Appalachian Red Oak? Maine Traditions? Help!
So, we selected Maine Traditions Red Birch. We loved it. The designer loved it. The flooring installer saw our dog and shrieked, "Don't do it!"
We are looking at Bruce Dundee Plank because a friend has it (but no pets). However, all of the poor Bruce reviews make me nervous.
We also have a sample of Appalachian Red Oak (Canadian) that looks very similar. Priced maybe $1.00 higher than Bruce.
The lumber place also recommends Maine Traditions and Somerset.
Any advice and/or photos would be extremely appreciated. The dog is pretty small---maybe 25 pounds---but he does love to chase after the cat. Thanks!!!
