    1. Choose authenticity

    The floor covering industry is vast and full of products claiming to be ideal for your project. However, this is rarely the case. In fact, the ideal product is one that suits you best after taking its pros and cons into account. If you enjoy the warmth and authenticity of real wood, hardwood flooring is the perfect solution! And if you are also looking for quality and durability, you might as well choose the original prefinished wood flooring: Mercier.

    Let's settle the matter once and for all.

    New flooring products appear regularly. Many flooring brands make a case supported by laboratory demonstrations that position them as the best of both worlds: the look of real wood without its drawbacks. However, the “lab” of everyday life is quite different. For example, the impermeability of a plastic-based products becomes irrelevant during water damage. The reason? Many materials, such as drywall and the plywood subfloor, will also be negatively impacted by irreparable water damage.

    This kind of damage is rarely limited to the floor covering alone, whether it is made of waterproof plastic or real wood. The real question is this: will fear of possible water damage prevent you from choosing the warmth, authenticity and sustainability of wood that you will appreciate every day?
