Yes, I have installed these floors in my own home which is on slab. I used a reasonable underlay that absorbs sound and moisture (water leak). I prefer this floor vs. carpet!

Answer: 
Despite the fact that this molde of flooring (HL15) can be installed either way, it is designed to be floated. That would be the installation method we would recommend. The engineered (HL15P) and the solid (HL15S) are designed to be glued down.

Hello Craig and thank you for your question.
Craig i would recommend glue down for anything above or at grade. Gluing it down does give you more of the solid feel when you walk on it than floating IMHO.It eliminates that occasional hollow sound would you experience with floating floors.

Hello Craig and thank you for your question.
Craig i would recommend glue down for anything above or at grade. Gluing it down does give you more of the solid feel when you walk on it than floating IMHO.It eliminates that occasional hollow sound would you experience with floating floors. Also note that you should be using an adhesive with inter-graded vapor barrier to minimize moisture permeability from ground bellow.Roberts makes good product with vapor and glue in one.
As far as the bellow grade goes i would float it over dimpled plastic (delta fl or proova flor) due to increased moisture levels.Floating allows for expansion and contraction of the product, thus you need to leave an expansion and contraction gap around the perimeter of the room regardless of the method of installation.

We have been reading numerous reviews and have come to understand there are series issues with scratching easily and denting. Essentially, the wear and tear'ability does not seem to be adequate with what store persons explain when you buy the product. Given the numerous complaints from multiple sources, what has home legends done to correct this issue, if anything?

Answer: 
I believe they are phasing out this product. I believe the dents and scratching are a function of this wood type and the fact that it is engineered flooring. Do not buy this particular product for high traffic areas. You will be dissappointed.

Answer: 
I believe the manufacturer states that these floors can be refinished one time. I would replace with a different product if you are having issues. They will scratch just as easily after you pay to have them refinished.

Answer: 
You can resurface the flooring, meaning that you recoat the flooring in a polyurethane clear coat, but you cannot sand, restain, then resurface the flooring; the 1.5mm wear layer could not withstand it.

High Gloss Santos Mahogany 5/8 in. T x 3-1/2 in. x 35-1/2 in. L Click Lock Hardwood Flooring(20.71 sq.ft.)-DISCONTINUED is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yes, they are horrible! I have had these floors for 3 years, and I have to say that I am not pleased with them any longer. I am at a point where I am ready to spend ANOTHER $3,000.00 to get my floors done again. Scratches and dents are on them! I use Bruce Hardwood and Laminate floor cleaner on them, which is a good product, however, with these glossy floors, you basically have to clean them on a daily basis to keep up the shine. Who has time for that?! The color is beautiful and compliments my living room, but I am thinking I should've gotten laminate floors, in a lighter color. With the darker wood, you see every single blemish. I hate my floors now :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for a family with children!!! We spent quite a bit of money on this beautiful hardwood floor, it's beauty lasted about a week. We are a family that lives in our home and this floor is not for a family. This floor was installed in our kitchen dining room area and it scratched from the minute we started walking on it. I would not recommend this product unless your just going to look at it and not walk on it. I even used rubbing compound thinking it would get out the surface scratches, no luck. We haven't had this floor for 3 months and I'm ready to change it. I wish I could afford to do this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed My husband and I installed this wood in our Living Room, Dining Room, Hall, and M/bed. It has been installed for 9 months and barely has a scratch on it. We have a boston terrior (about 30lbs) who plays on it all the time.. Every once in a while she will get a small scratch on it, but we got a small buffer and some old englist and it works great. Most scratches that appear on these floors are just surface scratches, meaning they do not go all the way through to the plywood so they are very easy to get rid of. The floor does require alot of cleaning. But this should be expected with a high gloss mahagony floor. I just use a dry swifer mop to sweep and bruce hardwood cleaner to mop. bruce is (the only cleaner that keeps you warranty valid by the way, we called the manufacturer to see what they recommenend and they said all other cleaners will void the finish warranty). As far as install. It is easy, trust me. We did 2400 square feet in less than 3 days (maybe 6-8 hours each day). However, make sure to check your floor level. If it is not level and you install it you will ruin the wood. Every 3 feet should be less than 1/4" difference, if it is not use self leveling underlayment. If you decide to install over an unlevel floor, the locking joints will break when you walk on them and you will not be happy! Other than that, the floor is beautiful and worth getting. Just because there are bad reviews does not mean it is not right for you. If you ask any person who has hardwood in their home, they will tell you it scratches easily.. Its hardwood it is going to scratch, if you dont want any scratches get laminate. Hope this helps!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from $$$$ Costly mistake $$$$ after alittle more than a month, dents and scracthes all over the floor. This was installed in kitchen and dining area leading to a family room area. 600 square feet total. Easy to install and looks great when finished but take a picture immediately after installation because it won't last long. In the dining area scratches all over and this is from the chairs even though they all have felt pads. In the kicthen the fridge was brought in on carpet and cardboard to avoid scracthing but the dents from pushing the fridge on its rollers caused a 5 foot gauge in the floor only noticed when carpet and cardboard were p/u after fridge was put into place. We also have a garbage can made out of plastic that weighs less than 2 lbs and there are scracthes all over that area as well. We have no dogs and cats and walk around the house in our socks. Unfortunately, the floor looks like it has been there for 100 years instead of a 2 months. Be careful because in this case looks are deceiving and this will be an expensive mistake you can't take back once installed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should have read the reviews before buying! We haven't even finished installing and we have scratches and gouges all over the floor. We are super careful - felt on furniture, no shoes on the floor, but you expect to purchase something you can live on and with - no have to coddle! One lot of boxes we purchased (January 2011 date on flooring pieces) had 6-8 pieces in each box that were cut in half and hidden in the middle! At first, when we saw how easily it was damaged we thought we'd gotten a bad lot with a soft finish, but have since realized its just the product itself. The first few times we found dents,etc., we pulled the flooring up and replaced the bad board, but after we did that three times, decided it was futile and wasted a lot of pieces. Beautiful floor, shame its so delicate. We will need to put lots of rugs down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful! Recently installed this floor in spite of some of the reviews. My installer was great...the floor is amazing. May have to charge admission as friends and family drop in to gaze. So far no problems that other reviewers noted. However, I'm using it in my living and dining rooms, neither of which is a high traffic area.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Bad Product We had 1500sf of Santos Mahogany engineered flooring installed in May of 2008 in our new home. We purchased it from Home Depot in Pensacola, FL. We made sure to let the product acclimate before having it professionally installed. In the 3 years since installation this product is covered in dings, dents and long scratches. Just our cats walkiing on it makes scratch marks. It is dull iin high traffic areas and no matter what we do we cannot get the product back to it's original gloss. We have always used the proper cleaning and polishing products to no avail. Also, it is starting to warp in places where the sun hits. We would not recommend this product to anyone. Heed this warning, in the end you will be disappointed if you have animals or kids or anything.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THESE HARDWOOD FLOORS I purchased and had these floors installed about 5 months ago. As of now, they look horrible. They have scratches and dents. As much as I mop these floors, foot prints will come back as soon as you walk on them again. I called the company and told them I use bona hardwood floor cleaner and its not helping. They told me I should use the bona tile, laminate and stone cleaner........ that did not help. I absolutely hate these floors. I'm a clean freak and when I look at these floors I just cringe. UGhh. My point is, don't waste your money on these hardwood floors. You will regret it. I wish I would have read reviews before I purchased them.
