I have been reading postings in this forum for several days and happened on it through a Google search. Actually, several Google searches. I am trying to decide on the best type of floor to install. Currently I am down to cement in my living room due to some flooding a few weeks ago. At the time I replace this, I want to tear up old white ceramic tile in my kitchen and laundry room and replace it. Also need to replace laminate flooring in entrace way, hallway and my bedroom. I would like to replace all of this with the same flooring. Before the flood, I was going to do this at some point anyway because of a very expensive mistake I made about 5 years ago. I have a modest income and I want to make sure I do my own research and make the best decision possible so that I will not be throwing money down the drain. I spent $6000 for laminate flooring and installation by and through a local contractor. At the time, I was replacing carpet that had been ruined by repeated soiling and urination by my dogs. (I have seen many responses about proper training to prevent this and I would be very grateful to not get these here because there are numerous circumstances involved as to why they have accidents) I have two male dogs who compete and mark territory, one is a rescue that has submissive urination and the other is diabetic. So this problem is not likely to go away. The best I can do is choose the most urine resistant flooring available. And this is how I ended up here Google. I have read many threads on sheet vinyl and porcelain tile. Have gone back and forth and am now leaning back towards sheet vinyl, primarily because of the expense of porcelain tile plus installation. I am going to use your directory to see if I can find an installer listed here. Thanks for all the good info you all have made available over the years. It has been quite helpful to me!
