I'm looking for advice and ideally experience with the California Classics Brand "Mediterranean" Engineered Hardwood Floors. We are building a 500 sq ft 1 bedroom "sanity space" in our backyard in Berkeley, CA for our family of 4 which includes 2 active boys. The unit is a concrete slab with hydronic heating and exposed Douglas fir beamed ceiling.
We need to choose one floor for the unit (except the bathroom) and we like the look of the "Modern Natural" line of Mediterranean French Oak floors by California Classics Brand, especially the Tripoli, Malta and Kerrew.
Is anyone familiar with this brand and ideally has anyone had this brand installed? How does it hold up over time? Anything to be aware of besides the need for excellent prep and installation? Any other brands with a similar look that we should consider? Thanks for your advice!
