Is it better to get a house with wood floors?

I am going to get a dog. I thought it might be easuer to take care of the floors with cleaning and such.

I love hardwood floors It would be in your best interest If you find a house that you like with the carpet To ask if there's hardwood underneath It's not cheap but affordable to get them refinished !! But don't base your house hunting on that Based it on location square footage And the bones of the house Floors can be changed

With dogs, carpet<wood<vinyl<tile.
to clarify that's least effective to most. And you can get vinyl that looks almost exactly like hardwood if you like that style.

With vinyl you would be replacing it in 8 to 10 years because it wears out.
It is also slippery when wet. So is tile but tile doesn't wear out.

yeah. but with pets you'ld be replacing wood every 4-5 years. I know. I have 4 dogs, all house trained, but wood only lasted 5 years. I got vinyl 5 years ago and it's still the same shade as it was and it's not too slippery when wet.

no because if you have a wooden house there would be a lot of roaches

Roaches can be in every house our whole house is build out of wood and we have NEVER had any roaches ... Hard wood flooring gets beat up really fast and carpet get nasty really fast...so go with something else

I say vinyl. It can look like wood, or anything else you want.

Yea I couldn't think of the name but my friends have that in their house and it's beautiful..

Yeah. And it's easy to put in. If the house has wood you can slap it right on top of the wood.

Yep that's right!

Tile would be the best and durable for pets....

But tile isn't as good for people cause it's harder and more slippery. It's also not good for furniture. And furniture isn't good for hardwood.

Yes it is highly a big selling point and you never have to replace it like a carpet. Also more sanitary.

With pets, wood isn't that great and you just might need to replace it if it get's bad enough. Or have someone repair it.

I'm not saying carpet is good. Carpet is one of the worst you could go with. But there are other options besides wood and carpet.

hardwood is the way to bounce, carpet is just over-rated
