Have you had a urinalysis done to rule out a UTI, Melora? There might be an underlying physical cause, so taking a urine sample in for analysis would be a good idea.

Before installing the new floor, make sure any layers underneath are ripped out and replaced or fully deodorized, or she may still detect the scent of urine. If you put down a real wood floor, urine may cause black staining that is very difficult to remove--so you'll want to make sure everything is scentfree before laying the floor, clean up any accidents right away and deodorize the area immediately. Being diligent about removing the scent cues will go a long way in helping you eliminate the behavior.
