Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kaysun Pleased with the flooring, installation was a bear!
My husband, retired builder, wanted to glue down this flooring for various reasons. We should have researched more before starting. Glue got smeared around on everything. We used mineral spirits to try to wipe it up, but we weren't able to tell that residue was left. After the installation was complete we saw residue all over place - lots of smugey spots. Went on line to the website of the maker of the adhesive - Roberts. We should have done that first! Roberts said to use a particular remover that they make, but that it has to be used on 'fresh' glue, not glue that is days old. Went to HD and they told us to try Goof Off. Said it would be safe and would remove the glue. Worked on some spots but not all. We were on our hands and knees for two days working on removing the spots. I don't think any installer would go with glueing the floor and I would also say Don't Glue! But we are pleased with the floor - beautiful color.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JasWilliams Beautiful flooring, but no trim available
I bought the Powernail 2000 20-guage cleat nailer for installation, and it worked well. Very few split tongues. Flooring product is well-made and there was a good mix of color variation within each box. This processed wood product is remarkably hard, and the finished surface is holding up well. Even made it through a week of grandkids here with no scuff marks. However, there is no trim that exactly matches this finish. HomeLegend responded to an email question that the Toast trim works, so will try that.

This stuff is amazing! We love the light color, that is what first drew our attention. I liked the amazing durability. I tried my best to scratch the store sample and I could not. Even after I scratched the surface with a screwdriver, because it is solid bamboo, the scratch just faded to the point that it was not noticeable. The only challenge was the installation. We did not want to go through the expense or toxicity of glue, we wanted our flooring nailed. Our first installer could not figure out how to do it. His fancy nail gun would either split the flooring, or the nail would not go through. We later found a handyman (not a flooring specialist) who simply used a cordless finish nailer to nail the floors down. It worked great. The floors look great and are solid. Here is what is even more amazing. Our air conditioner drain line clogged and the cut out switch failed so the drip pan overflowed, went through a ceiling and ended up on this flooring. The flooring was submerged in standing water. No problem. We simply cleaned up the water and the flooring looked like new. No swelling, no noticeable discoloration. This is an amazingly durable product that looks great. The manufacturer was also really helpful and supportive. While we used a smaller nail than recommended on the instructions, we ended up with exceptional results. I highly recommend it.

We have had this in our home over a year now. I specifically waited to review because I was most concerned about its " actual" durability because of its thickness. That being said, its hard stuff!!! Within the first 6 months of it being down my wife dropped a frying pan on the floor. The pan was dented and not a scratch was on the floor. It looks fantastic when finished and is easy for any diy- er to put down. Very much recommended. By the way, I have 2 children under 3 and they have been unable to warp the floors with their milk and juice spills. Make sure you use a bamboo nailer and test an area before installing to test your psi.

Much easier to install than laminate flooring and looks nicer than laminate. A few pieces came damaged but could still use them for end pieces, closets, etc.
