- Aluminum Oxide factory finish has 25 year warranty
- Same price as comparable 3/4" products
- Thinner material allows more installation options, including concrete (not important to us)
- Thinner material allows for use next to other thin flooring like vinyl and plastic laminate
The last item is the one that caught our eye. We planned for plastic laminate and vinyl, and our staircases were built accordingly. Now we found this 3/8" solid wood product, and we'd like to give it a try since it will work in this space where we *WERE* planning on doing plastic laminate. I like it a lot more than the other pre-finished products I've seen, because this particular model we're looking at does not have that annoying bevel that creates those dirt-catching grooves that scream, "Hey, this is an engineered wood floor product!"
I'm mostly wondering about durability, and in general any other performance differences between this stuff and traditional 3/4" solid wood.
Any info is greatly appreciated.
