    That snapping is from poor installation usually from the floor not being leveled
    There can be other issues such as moisture that can cause planks to release
    The noise usually is caused from an airspace below the board. When you walk it touches the concrete and the adhesive then snaps as it lifts back up. Sorta like gum

    Your floors were obviously done right

    Might end up going with hardwood after all.

    That's what we did through kitchen, entry, one bedroom/office. It hasn't been without mishaps. The fridge is across from the sink, so I routed a 'trench' to lay the copper line to the ice maker in the sub-floor. Naturally, it leaked at one end or the other and I ended up with some shrinkage and buckling. It can- and will- be repaired by the time we sell, but we just live with it for now.

    I just can’t bring myself to get a substitute that looks like hardwood. I love the patina, even the nicks, and the real beauty and feel hardwood has. The risk of damage is worth it to me. The only place I would use a substitute is in a basement.

    Two things that have influenced us:

    The appeal of solid hardwood to potential buyers.

    A friend pointing out that our current floor went 18 years before needing replacement, and at that rate, if we stay in this house until we die, worst case we go through this one more time.
