She knows she's not allowed going ballistic or having zoomies in the upstairs main floor and the floors there are perfectly fine.
Very important: If you want hardwood floors, which I highly recommend due to the ease of cleaning up any "ooopsies", make sure you get a satin finish, and NOT high gloss. High gloss floors show the tiniest scratch, and satin doesn't!:)
We put in hardwood floors on the main floor of the house. It has been 1 year and 2 months since they were put in and they look like hell to me
Sounds like someone skimped on the most important part - the durable finish. Some builders/contracters put one coat on, and that wont' work.
My floor has several hard coats of poly.
Seeing is believing!

I'mlooking into getting that for my boys.
