I have a concrete slab in my house and my wife and I just got rid of carpet (neither one of us can stand it). My wife is in love with the pre-finished engineered floor called Versastrip by Universal Flooring. My question is, is this type of flooring considered hardwood or pergo? i know there is real oak in there, but i'm not sure if it is considered hardwood. also, does engineered flooring also enhance the value of the house like say actual hardwood flooring would. Since we are in california, moisture in the ground is not a HUGE concern. we are planning on using the 3 in 1 foam underlayment with moisture protection and silent step. any suggestions on these matters would be appreciated. thanks,

That name rings a bell but I wouldn't consider it one of the better brands out there. Try this link for ideas on other brands.

Whatever you do -- run away from this flooring. We have it and it is very poor quality. We have no children but the flooring was getting scratched by the feet of our 20-pound elderly dog. We thought the product was defective since it was advertised to be as hard as a gym floor. It is NOT. We had Universal out to take a look at it and they said there was nothing wrong with it. We are now thinking about going to small claims court. We bought it at Home Depot and even though the sales persons agreed with us they could not do anything because the corporate offices overruled them.
