Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Remodeler Wood floors for a flip
I bought 2 pallets of this flooring for a house I was flipping. The floor color is dark and very nice. But all the reviews are right--the flooring is very very soft and will dent very easily. For example, if you put your fingernail into it, there will be a cut/dent in it. I didn't care because I bought it for the relatively low price not for how long it will last because it only has to show well while the house is on the market.
If you are planning it for your own house especially if you have kids or pets, I would definitely reconsider. By the way, I bought this same flooring in another color a couple of years ago for the house I lived in and it did suffer the same number of dents.
It's just really a floor for show not for actually living unless you're okay with dents, dings, etc.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mapleack Dents and scratches REALLY easy.
This floor is reasonably priced, it got shipped quick, it installed quick with hardly any waste. When we were done it looked beautiful! BUT, it dents and scratches very very easily. If you have dogs, even with well trimmed nails, expect scratches EVERYWHERE. If you're clumsy and drop things or have kids that drop toys, expect dents EVERYWHERE. We've only had this floor for 3 months, clean it every other day, but you can't look anywhere without seeing a scratch or dent. I really doubt that we're going to get more than a couple years out of it before it looks awful, at which point I'll be spending thousands of dollars all over again. Next time I'll put down hard surfaced floor like pergo.

the installation was simplistic. Thus far we have done 2 rooms and one high traffic hallway, over 3 months ago. Have not seen any scratches. One room is a spare bedroom , the other is used by my daughter for dance and play room. Won't let her use tap shoes on it but the flooring shows no signs of scratching. More rooms to do!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by x1cooldude good if you don't have young kids
The Good: Went in easy, looks good, priced well
The Bad: marks up easy, not for people with pets or kids
Note: there are repair kits to hide the scratches takes some practice to make it look good so use a scrap board to practice first.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kevllar Easy to install looks great!
This flooring went in like a dream. Took 5 of us to install around 500 sq ft. in 8 hours. Cuts easy snaps together very nicely. Has 4 different size to stagger the seams nicely. The color is beautiful and some pieces have really great wood grain we have found a few "favorites" on the floor.
Now the down side this floor has a hardness of "3" and dents. We where at the end, last 3 or so rows in our hallway and decided to bring in the couch. Well the couch didn't' quite fit and in the process of turning and lifting put about a foot and half long dent in the floor. Luckily with some elbow grease we pulled up the damaged boards and slid in new ones. Since the install a tipped over chair has dented the floor, and a laptop falling of a coffee table has dented the floor. Don't get me wrong I knew what we where buying and expected some accidents and well some "added Character" just beware it will dent and it doesn't take much force to do it.
All around you can't beat the price it looks amazing and with some care and tlc will look great for years to come.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer This product looks very nice but damages easily
This flooring looks nice but scratches if you look at it wrong I do not recommend it unless you very low traffic and no kids or pets! In one week it already is starting to show wear and scratches.
