Myself, my wife and our 2 60# labs live on a slab and we want hardwood floors. We have just about settled on a gluedown 3"x 5/16" Brazilian Cherry as the wood and think that we got a good price at $3.59 sq ft. We'll need 600 sq ft.
We've found that the Brazilian Cherry is among the hardest of woods, at around 2500 ppi, and along with the aluminum oxide finish, should be very resistant to scratches.
The sealer/glue is expensive at $150 for a 5 gallon bucket. I'll need 3 buckets.
I'll be putting the floor in myself but want to know if, other than a laminate floor or tile, if there is another scratch resistant hardwood that can go on a slab.
