Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hotmom57 Love my new floor
This flooring is exactly what I wanted. I just bought a new smaller home and the original flooring was dark laminate and tile in the small living/ dining room. This made the room look so small,so I new the maple color laminate in the whole area would make the room appear bigger. I have had so many compliments on the floor, it goes great with my mid-century modern design theme. The installers for home depot did a beautiful install job.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mat Nice, but many came damaged
About 1/3 of the boards had large chips on the corners. Luckily I was only doing a small space and made it work.

Flooring laid very easily and didn't crimp or pucker when tooled into a tight joint. Looks very close to real wood. Durability will have to be rated after a few months of use.

Looks beautiful, goes in easy, unfortunately very moisture sensitive - upstairs neighbor had a leak and the water came down under our new floor. This was caught within an hour of the event and that short of time expanded the ends and edges - which we had to replace. Fortunately replacing was easy as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Guy Pretty good flooring
The finish on this flooring seems to be pretty tough. During the install I dropped tools on it occasionally, and it doesn't show it. With that said, the flooring looks a little more rustic that my wife would like. It has a little more fake knots than she would prefer. I have no opinion of my own, so I must agree with her.
I don't like that the flooring is all one length. I would have preferred random lengths of "boards", but maybe this isn't even an option with laminate.
Out of 12 boxes of flooring I found one or two "boards" that were chipped or damaged.
I am NOT a professional, but I believe I have better than average skills (but doesn't every guy believe this?). Anyway, I found this flooring to be easy to install. The trick is to really think about what you're doing. You can do the install with nothing but a rubber hammer and a jig saw, if that's all you've got. A table saw and miter saw makes it go much faster.
Once it's down it feels pretty good and solid, and looks fairly realistic, almost like real hardwood. Anyone that knows will be able to tell the difference, of course.

This laminate flooring looks almost like real hardwood. My husband installed it in our kitchen/dining/entryway and hallway in 2 days. We ended up with extra boxes and are going to put it in my office as well. It is very durable and very quiet when walking on it. I would recommend this product over any laminate at this price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BoyntonGuy We love this flooring! It fit very well with all our furniture, light and dark.
I had a contractor install the material, so my 'ease of installation' rating is based on his lack of complaints about it. We did two rooms in this material and one in another material. I wish we'd done all three with this material as it looks better, not that the other isn't great, but this is even better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Golfner6 Very Solid Laminate flooring (No Pun intended)
Installed Hampton Bay Middlebury Maple in a 350 sq foot main room.
Before install I have to rip up a section of subfloor to cut down a center joist.
It was 5/8" taller than the other joists and bowed the floor, must have been cut that way at sawmill.
Anyways got the subfloor level then took about 4 hours to install using Airflow guard underlayment.
The best advice I can give is to use a small block of 2"x4" and a rubber hammer to lock securely the end of each board and sides. Just like you would if installing actually hardwoods.
One more piece of advice is to use a two row cut pattern and not a three row cut pattern.
It looks best for any room as a two cut plus its less waste of material.
Overall I've had this floor in since Sept. 2014 and we had a high heat summer/fall and a very cold winter in MD. So with that being said, the floor even holds well against and type of temperature changes.
