A product that withstands water, pets, and high traffic.
My husband and I had been looking for a product besides luxury vinyl and wood lookalikes that withstand water, pets, and high traffic. After doing as much research as we could and ordering samples that we put to our own tests, we committed to Raintree’s First Flurry. We installed the floor ourselves and are very pleased with the overall look. Each piece of flooring is different and has the character we love. We’re only a week in, but our golden doodle has tested it, and there’s not even a visible scratch to be found. We are very pleased we chose Raintree flooring.
Even the samples feel and look like stained wood.
We put our samples through the ringer...
I put Raintree samples to big tests before deciding: Dropped full cans of food from typical counter height -- no dents in the flooring or scratches. Soaked it in a bucket of water for a day and then let it dry -- no water issues. Scratched at it with normal type pressure -- no issues. It did scratch when sawing it rather hard with keys, but the wood was able to take fresh stain in that spot and blend right back in on the sample. Amazing!
I even installed it myself!
Installed right over tile.
We decided to go with the Raintree flooring in our powder room. One of the reasons we chose Raintree is because it can be installed right over tile without damaging it. The style we selected is Castle Creek and I am so happy with my choice ~ I absolutely LOVE IT!!
Floating over original hardwood.
We are installing our Raintree this coming week. We ordered Laguna in Driftwood. So excited to get rid of the 1990s orange oak! 🙂 They are going to float the floor over the existing oak in case someone comes along 25 years from now and decides they want to have the original flooring.
Makes the room look bigger and brighter.
We put Castle Creek throughout our entire basement including a downstairs bedroom. I love how much bigger and brighter it makes the rooms given we don't have as much natural light. I wish we would have removed the prefinished hardwood on our main level and installed Raintree there too instead of refinishing the existing wood.
