Salesman in the Jackson, MI store said this wood was harder than oak and that racket ball courts and croquet balls are made from Acacia wood. About halfway though the installation we noticed plenty of dents and scratches after only 1 week. Even my 95 lb mother and her walker caused indentations. Come to find out the wood is almost as soft as pine. Just from the way the installers saw cut the wood we new it was nowhere near the solidness of oak. We have another home in northern MI that is only 5 years old with oak and bamboo floors from Home Depot and they are doing great thus we took fell for the sales pitch on Acacia. We currently have a claim with Home Depot. Hopefully they will resolve this in some way where everyone is happy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYjunkies Love Our Floors!!
We've had our floor installed for over 8 months in the main living areas of our home and master bedroom. Looks amazing, 3 kids and 3 dogs (one huge golden retriever) and durable, no scratches, finish looks as good as day installed. Great color variations, not super heavy grain or heavy hand scraping, which we prefer.
Ordered 2nd lot for stairs to heavily used game room, and color consistent with other rooms. Next, ordering for our kids bedrooms.
Did research on cleaning and ONLY use slightly damp cloth or light steam ($50 shark from Target). We also put pads on all furniture to control scratches, but have on all prior wood floors too.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DKDNS0831 Beyond Disappointed-HORRIBLE flooring
We installed about 1,500 sq feet of this flooring when remodeling the main level of our home. Within days, I knew it was a major mistake. EVERYTHING destroys this floor. There are dents where the furniture sits unless it's on a rug (which defeats the purpose of beautiful floors when you have to cover them all up). The kids have dropped toys that have scratched or dented it. Our 60 pound dog has done the biggest number on it. We keep her nails trimmed and filed, but when she gets excited and runs across the floor it looks as though we took a metal rake to it. I have spent hours laying on the floor with a correction marker trying to cover scratches, but if there is a gouge it's still visible, and it gouges 99% of the time. We have had these installed for less than 6 months and I wish we could afford to rip them all out and replace them. We have had wood floors in the past and knew that they would develop "character" after being well-loved for some time, but these just looked trashed and I am kicking myself for spending our hard earned money on them. Do yourself a favor and avoid these. There were only a couple of online reviews at the time we purchased these, otherwise I would have run the other way.

I was very excited to find this acacia flooring, because I have a long time client that wanted a dresser made from it and I couldn't find it anywhere else. It arrived quickly and the price was reasonable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Carpenter225 Is this I what ordered?
I ordered 18 cases of this flooring based on several pieces of the small 4"x4" samples which were the MDF core snap and lock. When I received my order I was shocked at the difference in color. The samples were a golden brown tone while the solid planks were a burgundy tone with many knots-some of which had been filled with filler. It was obvious that the thin veneer on the samples were of a better grade of veneer than the wood used for the solid planks. Given time restraints I kept the order and installed it. Installation was easy and the consistency of the plank width was good. However, about 20% of every box contained 12" pieces with there only being 1 plank that was the 47" that is shown as the length of the flooring. Granted it's random length, unless you want lots of 12" pieces, your waste factor increases by 20%.
I ordered another 18 cases for an adjoining room and the color this time was very light and had a distinct orange tint. Different color lots but not even close by any stretch of the imagination. Beware if you need more flooring! Once again nowhere close to the sample color. This batch is getting returned. This is a "made in China" product hence the lack of consistency.
