I am currently remodeling guests rooms in a resort. 3 of those rooms are "pet-rooms". I was thinking laminate, but I am worried about urine sitting on the floor too long. If not wiped right away it would probably damage the floor.
Is there such thing as water proof laminate? What would be the ideal flooring? I know tile would be ok, but feels wrong and cold in a bedroom!
Help!! I dont know what to do!
There are various grades of laminate available. The better ones have a 25 year warranty and are considered moisture proof. They are very durable for marking from pet's claws. This comes from first hand experience in our own house.
However, there is a product on the market that comes as a plank which interlocks like laminate. It is constructed of vinyl and is easy to put down. We recently did a project using this type of product.
We use Quest for Colour in Parksville for our flooring needs. Sara DaCosta is very knowlegeable and fair with her flooring. She has in her store numerous samples of the types of material that would be proper for your needs.
I would sugggest that you give her a call. She is the owner of the Benjamin Moore Paint and flooring store in Parksville.
There's a product called "Aquarius" laminate. It's basically plastic laminate flooring planks that look like faux wood. The issue you'll have is that the urine will get into the cracks and it will be a pain in the butt.
I know it's cheap looking but your best bet is vinyl flooring. The stuff that comes on rolls and don't forget, corner guards for the furniture in the rooms. Dogs always lift their legs on furniture or corners.
