Answer: 
Yes - the boxes of flooring should be acquired in advance of the project (3 weeks or so I would say) and leave them in the area (or similar environment) where they will end up. You don't have to open the boxes....just get them to the location. We had them stored in our living room and bedroom prior to the project.

Hello,
Thank you for reaching out to us in regards to our hardwood flooring questions. This is a very classic Butterscotch Oak flooring product. It is recommended to acclimate this solid hardwood per the manufacturers recommendation outlined below.
Storage and Handling
Solid hardwood flooring should be stored in the environment in which it is expected to perform. Deliver the materials to an environmentally controlled site. The wood subflooring must not exceed 13% moisture content. Using a reliable wood moisture meter, measure and document the moisture content of both subfloor and hardwood flooring to determine proper moisture content. The difference in moisture content of the wood subfloor and the hardwood flooring must not exceed 4% (3% for plank). Acclimate the hardwood flooring on or off the job, as necessary, to meet these requirements. Store in a dry place, being sure to provide at least a four-inch air space under cartons which are stored upon "on-grade" concrete floors. Flooring should not be delivered until the building has been enclosed, with windows and doors in place and until cement work, plastering and other "wet" work is complete and dry. Concrete should be at least 60 days old.
If you have any further questions at all, please let us know how we can assist you. Have a great day! Read Less

What other products do I need to install this? Is there something that goes on the plywood before you put hardwood down?

Answer: 
Yes - first though....You want an adequate sub-floor....remove any old flooring. Also make sure to reinforce any loose subfloor boards and squeaks with appropriate screws. Cover the subfloor with 'rosin paper' (available by the roll at HD). You can use a few layers of the rosin paper to level and smooth certain areas that may need it.

Wood grains cause a big color change with the same stain. Also pictures on the internet do not do justice to the colors. Get a sample piece first.

Answer: 
Armstrong does not sell direct so we would refer any pricing questions to your local Home Depot store. Milstead is not produced by us, so we would recommend you view the products at the local store to compare the difference in cost and color.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Value / Very Good Product This is an excellent product and looks wonderful. It's solid oak, with a great finish. The value is what makes this worth considering. It's a great balance of excellent quality along with a very reasonable price. I researched this and other products quite a bit and ended up with this - and am very happy I did. I did living room, dining room, and kitchen (I installed it myself). Product quality was very good and within expectations....I'd say about 5% waste / unusable wood but that's within expectations. Most boards were very 'true'....the only issue (within the 5%) were a few boards that had black streaks / discolorations due to the underlying wood. But again - this was minimal and to be expected....always but a little extra. At $3.99 per square foot this is a no brainer....I only wish i had done these floors years ago. March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality product We purchased this to match existing floors in our entry- we were able to continue this floor in the adjoining living/dining room. My husband and I have installed many different types of floors and this was definitely more labor intensive than laminate, vinyl, and even tile. Once we got over the learning curve installation went much more smoothly and I was actually able to install about 90% of the flooring myself (as a sort of but not really very handy person). The quality is excellent, as is the price, and everyone who sees this floor remarks on how gorgeous it is. Installation took longer than I expected, but it was absolutely worth it, July 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very frustrated with this batch of wood. This purchase was the worst batch of hardwood that I've ever purchased. WAAAAY more than the 20% overage allowance for non-perfect boards. Thankfully I had a friend who had an extra two boxes of the color i needed so I could get the project completed. There was no time for a re-order. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ahs626 bruce plenty of cases available the vast majority was the same exact shade most of the pieces were straight and installation was easy al lin all great deal. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by looks great contractor installed - only problem big dog claws can mar the surface - we added a mudroom and wanted it to match our kitchen floor we did with the same surface a year ago. January 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Pleased I ordered this as additional boxes to what we had ordered several years ago. I have to admit that it was nicer wood than our previous order. It matched perfectly and very little waste for bad pieces. August 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bruce flooring Beautiful product. Fun to work with. I couldn't be happier. December 10, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Love Our Wood Floors But Sun Bleached Some Areas to a Shade of Orange-Pink Soon after we bought our home we installed about 1200 sq.ft. of this product. After researching installation online and finding great tips for getting good results we installed it ourselves. There are ways to straighten even the most crooked pieces. I wouldn't try installing this based on just the instructions in the box. I wish I had a purchased Floor-nailer & Palm-nailer instead of renting. Use a Palm-nailer for areas close to walls. Finished product was beautiful. It's an amazing upgrade where used. Everyone still loves it! Unfortunately, back then we had the original windows. On the southern side of the house the finish was sun bleached to a pinkish orange. The warranty doesn't cover sun damage. I'll have to refinish or replace those areas at some point. Today we have all new Low-E windows which would have prevented the sun damage. I plan on installing another 1000 sq. ft. upstairs this year. Tools Used; floor-nailer, rubber mallet, chop saw, table saw, extra large flat screwdriver, drill, hammer, shims, pry bar, lots and lots of floor nails. August 29, 2014
