Is this an actual hardwood or is it Laminate?

Answer: 
It's engineered flooring, so it's actual wood. The top layer of "actual hardwood" is about 1/8" thick and the remaining bottom two layers are 1/4" plywood (1/8" each). This product more dimensionally stable than "solid hardwood" flooring and this Bruce flooring doesn't utilize a lower-quality MDF core that many cheaper brands offer in laminate and engineered flooring.

Answer: 
It's a non-locking tongue and groove design. That means it cannot "float," so you are left with either nailing/stapling it down or gluing it down.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Color is similar to Bruce Butterscotch oak I bought this flooring as a "deals of the day" last minute rush decision, and I went to Home Depot the next day trying to find a sample to check the color, but I was told none of the stores have it in stock. The biggest risk of shopping flooring online is the color, luckily just as the other reviewer's tip, the color turns out to be very similar to the Bruce Butterscotch oak color that I initially planned to buy, and 40% cheaper because of the deal. I am very happy that Home Depot offers free shipping with an 18 wheeler truck and the delivery man helped move the pallet of flooring into our garage. March 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing purchase Rudolph the red nose reindeer would even love this flooring. Amazing product that looks awesome! Highly recommend! Go home depot! November 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ordering details and color matching I ordered this along with 2 other wood flooring products, not being able to see any of the products in person. I already have a 12 year old wood floor from another manufacturer of a Butterscotch color. The planks are the same shade and color even though they are Wheat. I also ordered a reducer molding in Butterscotch (TRSROBC7055) that matched perfectly even though it is from a different manufacturer. You can use a stair nose (LM6667) if needed as it may be the only option for fit. I had to strip and re-stain to match. February 8, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Above-Average Quality Stapled approximately 400 square feet of this product in a master bedroom. It's a non-locking tongue-and-groove configuration great for stapling. The color is a medium dark brown consistency and came out at the lower end of what looks nice. It staples fairly well, but you will have some pieces that bow even after allowing time to adjust to the environment. It's easy enough to remove the bow and nail the pieces to the floor. Make certain you staple this product into an approved subfloor so it achieves appropriate purchase (bite) and doesn't flex and cause squeaks. About 75% - 80% of the pieces were 49" long. One box had over 70 short pieces though, so you definitely want to "rack" the floor by opening several boxes at a time. You should note that on prefinished flooring little grooves occur between boards and those can trap dirt. On this flooring the grooves proved extremely small and tight. October 4, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product was fairly easy to install. The only issue was that the long boards were bowed so I had to put weight on them to ensue contact with the glue. Over all the appearance is good. April 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice flooring but coverage is overstated I've used Bruce engineered oak flooring before and am always impressed with it. This bundle was no different. But I had one BIG problem. My project needed 32 sq ft and I had 3 sq ft left over from before, so I ordered one bundle, which was supposed to cover 30 sq ft. Since I planned to use the material end-to-end, cyclically, I anticipated no more than 1% waste. But I only got 28.25 sq ft of coverage with the bundle. What the heck? Then I realized they count the tongue in the coverage, which obviously does NOT contribute to floor space! If you are a normal contractor and go by the rule of "buy 10% extra", you'd never notice this. But if you plan too carefully you get shortchanged. By about 6%. I was really annoyed - there is NO REASON to play number games like that. This is an excellent product, love the finish, easy to install (glue it down with polyurethane), and inexpensive. I'd give it a 5 if it wasn't for the company's deceitfulness in coverage. Hey guys, tell us like it is and let us decide how we do our planning. February 26, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1st install of hard wood floors. Super easy Product was shipped with no damage. Waste was less than 5%. April 11, 2012
