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.

This is our 3rd experience with this flooring. We originally used it to replace carpeting in a small office. Last year we put down about 600 square feet in a dining room, great room combination. This year we purchased 200 square feet to use in a hallway and our master bedroom. We have always been happy with the product knowing that there would be some waste and color variation. As a 60+ year old couple we have become very proficient at installing this tongue in groove product but it often is more of an artistic project then a skill. Using the random cuts in each box we were able to arrange the lengths without much cutting which often leads to more waste. We purchased the pneumatic floor nailer as it was cheaper than renting it and it gave us more time to do the job at our pace. This year the product we purchased was of exceptional quality compared to previous years. We had almost no waste due to color variations and many of the 20 boxes we purchased contained all long boards. The pneumatic nailer cured most of the boards that had some warp. Our first project with this wood has been installed for almost 15 years and it still looks as good as the day we installed it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jsg Quality less than expected
The quality of this Bruce flooring is not as good as the Bruce flooring we had purchased in the past. Some pieces were noticeably thicker than others making them unusable. There were also several pieces that were not even the same finish. The variation in sizes of the pieces per box was very disappointing. One box would have almost all long pieces and than the next several boxes were mostly short pieces. We had more boxes of just short pieces than we had of longer ones. As you have no way of knowing what each box contained there was no way of predicting whether or not there would be enough variation to make the floor look nice. Fortunately for us some of the pieces are going to be under cabinets so we were able to make use of the too many short pieces. You needed more than the recommended extra %.
I was pleased with how well the overall color of the flooring matched our older Bruce flooring.

I had a leak from my ice maker therefore I had floor damage on my hardwood floor. Luckily I had saved my original receipt and was able to order flooring to match the flooring I have all over my house. I was able to just replace my kitchen flooring because of the wonderful work of an experienced man.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by old1 Worst ever
This flooring is unquestionably the worst quality I have ever installed. This is cabin grade or seconds at best. I lost at least 10 pieces from the box and would have lost more if I had graded it at all. Width variations, burn marks on the edges, horribly warped beyond use, lack of a tongue on 3 long pieces. I'm glad this went in a closet so the low quality won't be in the main room. it was only to finish a room and the color matched otherwise I would have returned the box. If you want a decent looking job that the tongue and groove actually fit together, don't touch it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MommaRose I have burned better wood.
The flooring is so poor that the amount that is usable is negligible. Missing tongues, the back of the groove is broken off, inconsistent color, many, many 9 - 12 inch pieces (those are the good ones), some look like wood rot, worm holes, unfilled knots that go through, Some look torn up not cut. This should be classified as Tavern grade or below. A certain Lumber flooring company sells this quality at 99 cents a foot.
