Does anyone love their engineered wood floors? People have me scared

Hello everyone!

I am building a home and really want wood floors. It would be a slab house so I will be gluing the engineered wood floors to the concrete.

I have been to 5 specialty floor stores who all tell me not to go with wood floors. They tell me to go with LVP. I completely understand the benefits of LVP and that it is less maintenance. All the flooring stores tell me all these horror stories about wood floors. I wouldn't have thought much of it if it was 1 or 2 people who mentioned this, but it has seriously been every single person I have talked to.

I will have a humidifier and dehumidifier added onto the HVAC system to control the humidity. I also am not unrealistic about the floors never scuffing or scratching.

I am looking at a company called real wood floors out of Missouri and have talked to them many times about the quality of their products. It is a 3/8 thick 5 inch wide plank with a 25 year residential warranty and does have the aluminum oxide coating.

Does anyone who has engineered floors love them?

Please give me your honest opinions.
