Good Point ...

Laminate floors, especially Pergo and floating floors, there's a tendency for them to sound 'hollow' or 'soft' when walking on them. (It can be magnified or muffeled depending on whether the sub-floor is wood or concrete ...)

Traditional hardwood floors are nailed to the sub-floor and 'sound solid' unlike what I just stated w/traditional laminates. (No one asked, but ...) 2 'big' reasons I like a 3/4" solid floor is because if it's 'feel' and value. Soooo, if they're important to you, then consider it along with everything else you (Sarah) are looking at.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
