Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave looks excellent easy install great value
Bought this for my bonus room, about 320 sq, I installed it in 1 weekend with a flooring nailer 16 ga cleats. I had to adjust the nailer so the nails would not hit the tongues, initially the nails were hitting the tongues and the tongues were splitting after the adjustent there were no splits. It looks great. There were no boards that were unusable. There was a good color variation remember to mix up your boxes. We are replacing all the carpet in our upstairs with hardwood. the rest of the upstairs is red oak. Because of the size of this room putting down red oak would have been at least 2 times the price, After it was done my wife said she wishes we did this instead of the red oak. Other reviews mentioned easily scratched. I did not find this to be an issue. For the price you can't beat it. LL was 1.00 a sq more expensive for 3/8.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Installed as advertised and looks beautiful
I'm giving this product a 5 star rating, but it has only been in a week. I glued it down and it installed well. The glue was hard to keep off of everything. Make sure you have one person slated to follow you through the installation and clean up fresh glue with mineral spirits. Clean up a day later is a real pain. You could spend another 8 hour day cleaning up if you let it dry!
NOTE: Make sure you figure in the glue in your overall price. The glue cost 1/2 of the price of the wood itself! $750 in wood and $350 in glue. The Bamboo glue is more expensive and Home Depot Store only stocks it in $150, 4 gallon buckets. Order a few 1 gallons on line and return what you don't use!! I had to go back for a third bucket ($150), to finish the job, and used less than 1/2 of it!!!
The product looks beautiful and feels beautiful under your bare feet! It's worth the hassle. But plan ahead with the glue and gloves and dedicated clean up person!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jamie23 Very Beautiful floor
I had this floor professionally installed. It is beautiful, easy to clean, and looks and feels great to walk on. 10/10 would buy again- I've been seeing a lot of reviews say this product scratches easily - just move furniture with care and use common sense and I don't see this becoming an issue. No scratches yet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gonzalez Totally disappointed
I love the look of the flooring. Like most other floors was a bear to install. After installation it looked great. After each cleaning, I noticed more and more scratches. The floor has been down for about 6 months and looks terrible. I am so very disappointed. Not only was the flooring expensive but the glue was over $100 a can. We purchase quite a bit, enough to cover two large rooms and a hallway. I am going to THD this week to see what can be done. This is not a product I would ever recommend. Sorry

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KMJB Looks Fantastic!
We had our contractor friend install the floors throughout our entire apartment (about 5 rooms plus a hallway), and with four guys working on it they were installed in one day! I am so happy with how the floors turned out - they look amazing with the paint that we had already chosen and I couldn't have asked for a better match! And they clean very well - after all of our other renovations were done, I just ran the vacum over it to pick up the majority of the sawdust then a lightly damp mop to clean & shine.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HomeownerBuilder Installs easy; looks nice; scratches and dents easy
Had to give it a 3...easy scratching and denting (photo attached). Standing and looking from the doorway...floor looks great. Inspecting floor closely...can see all the small scratches and nicks...so I don't look closely anymore. Used a floor nailer...easy to install. Don't make a mistake because the board(s) will damage and become unusable when removed after nailing. Use felt or carpet cutouts on the bottom of furniture. Don't see how you can repair (replace) damaged boards without removing (and damaging) the adjacent (non-damaged) boards. Inspect the boards before purchasing. Difficult to match the boards if you buy from different lot numbers. Some lots install for the right and some lots install from the left. Also hard to match color and design of different boards to give symmetry to the floor. Manufacturing & Retailer should disclose the easy scratch and dent problem to the consumer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trapper My wife loves it!!
Finishing a loft over the garage for my wifes paint, yoga, exercise space....this was a great choice. I ordered the Freeman 3 in 1 nailer and used that with the 1/2" foot and 1 1/2" L-cleats and asphalt kraft paper.
People say it scratches easily....but if you read the reviews on other flooring they seem to say that too.
