Product Overview

The Natural Reflections 5/16 in. product collection is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional 3/4 in. solid hardwood floors and is proudly made by Bruce (Beverly, West Virginia). Made in a thinner 5/16 in. structure, these floors use approximately 50% less raw material than traditional 3/4 in. solid products giving you the same beautiful, solid hardwood visual and performance with some truly unique advantages compared to 3/4 in. thick options. Unlike most factory-finished hardwood floors which have a bevel along the upper edges and ends of the floor, the Natural Reflections 5/16 in. thick solid product from Bruce features a Square-edge, Square-end profile. Unique in the industry from Bruce, this gives you much more of a traditional sand-and-finish or site-finished visual with all of the advantages of a heavy-duty, factory-applied finish. And, because these floors come in the low-profile 5/16 in. thick format, they can be installed using either a staple-down or glue-down method and don’t dramatically increase the height of your finished floors. In addition, unlike most traditional 3/4 in. solid floors, they can be glued-down directly to concrete subfloors (see Installation Instructions for full details).

Customer Questions & Answers

can i glue down the flooring instead of staple?

Asked by: Anonymous
Just glued mine, it was a disaster! I imagine since the wood is so thin that staples would cause the flooring to split. My advise, don't glue and don't staple. If you already purchased the flooring, do yourself a favor and return it!

Is it suitable for bathroom and kitchen iinstallation

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Wwf
I would put it in my bath and kitchen- it would be beautiful! You know what happens to wood if you let water sit for awhile.

I have loved it! I needed to repair a spot in the floor (due to an accident). I was delighted to find it at Home Depot! Convenient, I trust them, and it was quick.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This flooring choice is one I have really enjoyed using.... This flooring choice is one I have really enjoyed using. The product is FANTASTIC. However the initial install by Home Depot was faulty according to 3 different floor companies. Hilda in store Mgr. Flower Mound has been AWFUL!! I would stay away from any long term project - no support!! why rate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We were looking for an option to upgrade a foyer and tie it in to the dining room. We had looked at many hardwood options. This product came up at a great price in a color we liked so we pulled the trigger. Couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these flloors We had this floor installed 10 years ago (kitchen and dining room); we love it so much, we decided to match it and do the rest of the house. I was worried it would no longer be available *and* that the floors (which would be right next to each other) wouldn't match. It is a perfect match! You cannot tell which floor is new and which is 10 years old! No fading, no really bad scratches after 10 years. There was a major snafu with delivery (a month delay), but Steve Bartle in HD's customer service was awesome and made sure our wood was delivered. Please, don't ever discontinue this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I purchased this floor as a recommendation from Home Depot as I was looking for something a littl... I purchased this floor as a recommendation from Home Depot as I was looking for something a little less expensive than 3/4 as I had 750 sq ft of area that I had to cover. I then returned to the store to purchase the installation supplies and no one knew anything about the installation of the floor. I went to multiple Home Depot stores, talked to multiple people and they all told me something different. The flooring didn't come with any kind of installation manual or a resource in which I could find one. One associate went so far to tell me that you just lay the flooring down and no glue or nails are needed! The last associate I talked to advised me on the glue and trowel that I needed for the installation, I thought I was on a good track finally. Come to find out, after installing the floor the notches in the trowel were way to big even though the shelf and associate indicated it was correct. Due to this issue, my floor has soft and hard spots, you can feel bumps and voids as you walk across. The quality of the hardwood is also something that I find very poor. I purchased the floor based on the high quality of finish that was in the product description. The finish is softest I have every seen! If you are to just look at the floor the wrong way, it scratches! I have attached a picture where you can see the scratches that now have peppered the whole floor, just from normal traffic. We have had the floor down for a little over a month and it looks like it is 20 years old. In addition, the pieces that came in the boxes were very warped and/or had broken grooves. It looks like the boxes had been in a warehouse for years and now just seeing light for the first time. In addition, no one seems to know where to purchase the accessories from, stair nose, transitions, etc.? So I am left with unfinished points. All in all, this is the worse floor I have ever installed. Now $4,000 deep, with the floor and material I don't know what to do other than just live with it. I wouldn't recommend the following to anyone: -This type of flooring and finish -The so called Home Depot "Experts" -The flooring manufacture
