Some owners (who apparently have an abundance of time on their hands) opt for dog booties when their dog is indoors. This sounds like one of the more tedious methods of dealing with dogs tearing into hardwood flooring. Another solution is dog nail covers. These are plastic caps that you can buy for your dog's nails that stay in place with an included adhesive. They can be purchased in a clear color or in other colors, and they stay in place for about 8 weeks. One of the issues that dog owners have cited with these is that sometimes the nail grows within the cap and the cap needs to be cut off. Dog nails aren't dead and nerve-free like human nails are. They have a vein of blood running through them, and if the nail gets too truncated, there could be pain for the dog.
The next product in the Impressions hardwood flooring line is a top selling 1/2” thick engineered hardwood called the Salem Series. The Salem series features a Perma-Finish Commercial Grade Water Based finish and is stocked with only Prime Select Grade oak products. The Salem Series has Red Oak & Brazilian Cherry as species available to the name and can be installed below, above & on grade. The Salem Series is an engineered hardwood floor with a hardwood base panel & 2mm thick sawn face wear layer for Oaks & 1.4mm for the Brazilian cherry. The Perma-Finish, being that it is a water base, allows the true coloring of the grain to show through and shine and is added protection against scratching. This product features boards of 1'-4' and an average board length of 31” making it a longer plank than most engineered wood flooring on today's market. The edges on this product are a 4-sided micro bevel and prevent chipping at the edges while defining the edge of each board.

This is a very thick engineered hardwood and may be sanded and recoated many times over the life of this floor and will last many years. This product is only available in 3” widths for both the Oaks & Brazilian cherry floor. This product can be easily installed either by Glue, Nail or Staple down.

With an impressive durability and unique appearances, exotic hardwoods are an excellent choice for the homeowner who wants the durability of hardwood but wants something a little different at the same time. Exotic hardwoods offer a variety of colorations and patterns that are not commonly seen in domestic hardwood flooring. Learn more about what makes a wood floor exotic, the durability they offer, and how to care for your exotic wood flooring. What Are Exotic Hardwoods? An exotic hardwood is defined as any type of wood found outside of the United States that is imported into the country. Brazil, Australia, Africa and countries in the Far East offer a large variety of woods not native to the U.S. There are over 100 species of trees that are considered exotic to North America and offer a distinctive and visually striking appearance that differs from standard American hardwood floors. Exotic hardwood floors, like standard hardwood floors, are manufactured in both solid hardwood and engineered assortments. Solid hardwood is a single slat of wood; engineered wood is a sandwich of laminated wood with real hardwood veneer on the top layer.
