If I knew then, what I know now, I would never have purchased laminate floors. My dog has scratched our floors, and as many of you know, the warranty does not cover scratches. It appears to be a Catch 22 situation. You can't repair or put anything on the floors because it will nullify your warranty, so I'm stuck with scratched floors. Even though the floor is easy to care for, and looks pretty, for the long haul, I should have bought hardwood, or vinyl. I guess this is a typical live, and learn.
