The longer the better. If you have a good moisture meter, that can point you in the right direction for a proper timeframe to acclimate the flooring. If the humidity fluctuates quite a bit in your home, the timeframe is very complicated because the wood will shrink and swell with the humidity levels. In my experience with this product, a good amount of the product after 34 days of acclimation in a dry environments yielded about 15% of warp, 5-8% unusable. I had to use scrap and a pry bar to tighten the flooring into the groove before nailing. The finish is not great and the hardness is mid-grade at best as it dents VERY easily. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
I believe it is recommended to leave the product in the original packages, stacked neatly as high as is safe, together. The amount of time is about 2-3 days, though the longer you wait the better. Make sure it's in the room or at least close to the installation location. For example, staging it in the garage and then bringing it in to the site will not allow for proper adjustment.

Answer: 
Personally, I let the wood sit inside the house for about 5 days. Most people will say anywhere from a few days to about a week. When installing, create variations in the pattern by picking pieces from different boxes. If not, the floors might come out plain or uniform-like if you use all the pieces from a single box at time.

Armstrong would recommend to test the moisture in the subfloor and in the back of the wood flooring product. The readings need to be within 4% for strip and 3% for plank before installing the floor.
Here is the information from our installation instructions:
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 with a reliable wood moisture meter. 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.

You will also need the floor nailer and I used a brad nailer to get me away from the wall far enough till I could use my floor nailer. It's tongue and groove and your floor nailer shoots the nails in the tongue. Also the floor nailer is quite expensive but it takes the work out of it.

Dry-lay the flooring first, a couple rows at a time. Mix up the longer pieces and shorter pieces. If you have any real ugly knots or scars, you can either use those pieces near a wall (or in a closet), or just don't use those pieces at all.
It's absolutely critical that you get the first couple rows absolutely, completely straight and square. If the first row or two are even a little bit off, it will magnify by the time you get to the middle of the room.
If you know of a carpenter or local handyman that has any hardwood floor experience, you might want to consider paying them for an hour or two of labor just to help you get started. Once the first few rows are good, then you can go quite quickly. Read Less

I did the entire upstairs of our two story home by myself. It's a physical job but not technically difficult. Though I love the results, it was HARD work. Doubt I'd tackle as much again in the future. I'm not getting any younger...:)

Plano Marsh Oak 3/4 in. Thick x 2-1/4 in. Wide x Random Length Solid Hardwood Flooring (20 sq. ft. / case) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flooring! I chose this flooring as we have hardwood on our first floor and the second floor hardwood was in too bad of shape to refinish. This flooring matches almost perfectly. I installed it by myself, so it was slow going, but not because of the product. I couldn't be happier with the way the floors look.

I installed this product in my home 6 years ago against the advice of professional wood floor installers who tried to convince me to buy unfinished wood that they would installed and sand/stain/finish in place. I considered doing that but since we were living in the home decided against going with unfinished wood and bought this product in Plano Marsh finish . We couldn't be happier. Our home is in Northern New England and as such the floors are subject to extreme temps and various harsh abuse from mud & road salt tracked in. After 6 years I still get comments on how beautiful the floors look in our living room and dining area. I intend to remove carpet and purchase more BRUCE pre-finished hardwood for other rooms in our home. Thank You for such a great product that has exceeded our expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this floor color & Quality! This is beautiful flooring, well made with nice clean T&G. The color is gorgeous and everyone loves it that comes into our home. The floor looks fine down, we did 1400 sq feet. No problem with too many short pieces. Buy extra as always recommended for the less than perfect pieces. The best part about it is it is refinished so no smell and the finish is excellent, no bubbles or urethaned dirt problems. If you have ever lived thru refinishing floors and the smell, you will love this floor. SOLID WOOD WITH MANY SANDS AVAILABLE, DON'T BUY LAMINATE when you can have this! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED if you have a good installation, leave room for the float!

Only reason I would recommend is that it was cheap and on clearance at my HD store. More than usual unusable pieces and end matches could be better. Quite a bit of uneven ends leaving a sharp edge. Trying to piece together to get good end matchews on heavy traffic areas is time consuming. The overall appearance is great on the usable pieces. Nice finish but some boards defects (knots, insect holes) have been filled great and others have not. Glad I have places I can hide these "bad" boards or I would have to order more. Quality assurance on this Bruce flooring needs to be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laminate or Hardwood The cost of repair and refinish of our maple H/W floors was about 7k I bought enough of the plano flooring to do all the house over. After sorting it by approximate size, the real fun began in making a "random" pattern from the random lengths. That I believe is the most time consuming but by doing it the amount of waste was almost nil I cut very few board ends and had only a half dozen pieces left over from 2k sq ft. My father does not care for the little grooves but, he does not live here. I believe that it is a beautiful floor and easy to install (buy a nailer and take your time). We are moving to a new home with carpet that will find its way to the dump and replaced with this flooring before we move in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So Many Bad Quality Wood per Box- Not worth the extra time and frustration! I purchased 70 cases and installed it myself. Had to returned many boxes. Thank god Home Depot's return policy is so great. Box stated, 80% premium quality per box- absolutely not true! Maybe 45% usable wood-honestly. Even after sorting out all the bad wood- a lot of the usable wood panels are not straight- therefore making the instillation so difficult and the outcome not desirable. Very disappointed. Maybe the salesperson at Home Depot meant well to save me money... but in the long run, I would purchase the more expensive panels next time.

The floor was just absolutely beautiful. The quality of the wood, the finish and price has made me very happy with this particular purchase. I decided to complete an area of my home with this exact same flooring. I ordered another 26 boxes of this flooring and the colors didn't not only match the floor that I put down, The pieces in the boxes were noticeably different that I thought it was a joke. I called customer service and I was informed that they should relatively match. I made sure I all of the number matched my previous order, from the model down to the SKU. Since they don't I had to change my flooring and I had to pay for the delivery company pick up this order. Not only am I unhappy with the flooring but the fact that is totally different from what I purchased before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL HARDWOOD FLOORING!! I got this flooring because it was in stock and the price was excellent! Only cons are that there are alot of small pieces and some discolored pieces. I use the discolored ones anyway because once flooring installed, these pieces actually give it character. My floors look gorgeous! I've used this flooring before when I remodled the upstairs bedrooms. I loved how they turned out so I got it again this time for downstairs.
