Flooring Question For Rental

I spoke with a home depot rep today about replacing floors in a rental that I am about to rehab. I was quoted $2.50 sq/ft for their lower end trafficmaster material and install. He recommended me go this route but told me that this type was not water resistant and that kind of pushed me away. I was also recommended the pergo laminate that is supposed to be much more durable around water and more scratch resistant. I felt like this may last a lot longer but would cost $4 Sq/ft material and install. Lastly, I looked at the LVP which I see a lot of people on here praise. I can get LVP material / install for $5 sq/ft. The home depot rep told me that although the LVP would withstand water really well and be very durable, it would probably feel cool to step on whereas the laminate would feel much closer to room temperature and that this was something I needed to take into consideration. I have not seen this part mentioned on here before.

I'd love to hear any feedback about any of this material and whether you feel this is a fair price based on what you are getting.


Thanks,

David
