Wood Flooring Scratch Test on Engineered, Solid and Laminate Samples

I go through several samples showing the results of what scratching them with a wood screw, sheet metal screw, flathead screwdriver, coins and a pocket knife. The results are surprising.

So which one was the overall best against scratches?

Max says:

I dont understand, this is not a good way to test a finish because every floor will scratch when a sharp pointed object scraps on it. You wouldnt test to see how good your cars paint is by running a key down the side of it, so dont do it to your floor. Finishes should be abrasion resistant, stain resistant and easily cleanable. Use a grade 1 steal wool to simulate light abrasion in high traffic areas, you’ll find this will leave scratch marks on just about every hardwood at home depot, but cant scratch high quality hardwoods. To simulate how stain resistant a floor is, poor wine on in a small spot and let sit for one hour and then wipe off. Low end finishes are often open cell, which means they are more prone to stain. To see how easy it is to clean, sprinkle a small amount of flour on the sample and try to wipe clean with a rag and water, you’ll notice a dramatic difference between samples.
