Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andrew Smith The best laminate I have seen.
I first purchased Dupont Real Touch Elite in the Colonial Oak style a few months ago. I have no building or carpentry experience, but was able to lay the floor in a weekend. The floor looked so amazing and because we received so many compliments from our friends, we decided to finish our upstairs as well. I would recommend these floors to anyone who wants a great alternative to real hardwood. Also, these floors do not scratch. We have a very active dog who has yet to scratch them.

I am a single mom of three and I purchased the Dupont Real Touch Elite in the Colonial Oak style and am amazingly impressed by the quality, shine, and ease of installing it. I did not know anyone who could help, but it didn't matter. This flooring was easy to install and gave clear cut instructions for installation. Although I also credit the sales associate for his expertise and knowledge in flooring to help me make the decision to purchase this flooring. I would highly recommend this product to any do it yourselfer who seeks the look of real hard wood floors with the practicality of children and pets. Not a scratch yet!

Excellent product, gives a very nice finished look. There is a learning curve with the installation. You get better as you go. You will need a good blade on your table saw and jig saw, as the laminate is quite hard and will wear down a blade. I guess that is why it has a 30 year warranty. A rubber mallet is a must for installation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WHISKEY Fantastic and easy to install
This product is amazing and so easy to cut and install. Goes down in minutes and makes the floor quiet and the look makes you feel that you are in a quality built home. Have not seen any problems with it as of yet. Rest assured that this will make your home feel and look better and the ease of cleaning is awesome. I give it a big 5 stars all the way around.

This floor is one of the strongest, most scratch resistant that I've ever seen. I've seen kids toys dragged across it and the dog running around with no scratching. Also, the DIY installation is a breeze.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kiddo3575 Dupont Colonial Oak Laminate Flooring
My husband and I installed laminate flooring down on the main floor 5 years ago. Since then we have continued to install room by room removing the carpet with laminate. With each room remodel the main floor became a hub of all of the tools and traffic, not to mention a full kitchen remodel, children and an over 100 lb dog. After each remodel job and clean up was done, you cannot tell that we were even using the main floor. I do have to confess we have had some opps along the way. Like for example a hammer fell from the top step all the way down to the main floor. My heart stopped for a second while I chased after the hammer. It landed with a great big thump, but the damage was just a very small chip and I was able to put colored laminate putty into the chip and now no one is the wiser. I am very impressed with the durability of this laminate flooring and so are our friends and family. Dupont has really stepped it up.

I bought two palletes of this product based on closest appearance to real wood flooring...and durability with pets and children.
I installed item by myself and had no problems at all.
Has been in place for approx. two years or more and it
looks as good as it did when I installed it.
The floor has stood up under the wear of four dogs ,two cats,four grandchildren and several adults.
Extremely attractive and durable was well worth the price.
The cost would have doubled with the price of installation of hardwood floors.
One of the best investment in our home that we have made.
If you want the look of hardwood but have durability issues you could not go wrong with this flooring.
What you save on the installation of hardwood will
pay for this product.
Great product,excellent appearance and durability would
not hesitate recomend to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gordons Love this wide plank flooring!
We've just built a new house and we installed this flooring in every room of our first floor. It was easy to install, is very well made and durable (we have pets and toddlers), it's quiet and it looks absolutely beautiful. We've gotten so many compliments on it! There is a lot of laminate flooring out there but this is by far the most realistic and the wide planks are a great look. We highly recommend this flooring.
