Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Renovate4me Poor quality
This product is merely a thin veneer of cork (almost like a picture of cork) glued to a cork base. The problem is even when you seal the cork with 2 coats of polyurethane as required, it's still can be scratched. When it is scratched it reveals the darker base. I have 4 coats of polyurethane on mine and it’s still getting scratched. Better quality cork is NOT a veneer and that's why scratching and denting don't affect the look of the product as much.
I've had this floor down for less than 6 months and I purchased over 325 SQ FT....I will probably pull it up within a year a redo the floor with a better quality cork. This was an expensive mistake!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jacobus Fine quality for the price
Uniform quality, easily assembled, and handsome. It is heavy flooring so it provides excellent sound dampening and a wee bit of cushioning to catch the off dropped dish.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cheesehead Very comfy to walk on...
Floor was fairly easy to install. Looks wonderful but there are some color variations that are quite noticeable. If able to, you should lay out portions of flooring and see how they range in shades/colors for best look before installation. Feels great to walk on. We installed over concrete floor with hydroponic in-floor heat and the heat comes up through very well and the cork provides some cushion to walk on so it isn't as hard on the legs. Hope it holds up over time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by refchick Corkwood is NOT CORK!!!
Don't be fooled! This floor is NOT Cork Oak (Quercus Suberus) it is Corkwood (Leitneria floridana)! Home Legend has used a VERY CHEAP "cork like" substance because it has a name that can "confuse" the general population. This floor is "low priced" because it is NOT from the Cork Oak (very expensive material). If you have purchased this product because you thought you were buying real cork (from Portugal) then take it back! You will NOT receive the benefits you thought you were getting!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by skw68 Poor Quality!!
This is the worst flooring I have ever used. Anything and everything scratches, chips or gouges the finish. I will have to replace this floor soon and its not even been a year yet. What an expensive mistake!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by FuzzyDIY Solid OK Cork
Installed this in a ~280 sq. ft. basement room. I was hoping this would click into another Home Legend engineered product, but it didn't.
Installation was straight forward. The tongues were fragile, you can't hit them with anything or they will deform and won't click into a new piece. It was difficult to tap the pieces together without lifting the edge of the cork. The seams don't sit perfectly flat. Finally, be aware you need to put a sealer on the floor once it's installed.
It is much darker than the picture, almost a Masonite color, and the pattern is ~ 1.5" square. It still looks much better than a "bulletin board" cork floor. Also, even over DriCORE, it's warmer than the other engineered flooring.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debs Warm and wears very well
I was just reminding myself of the cost of this flooring, because I'm back for more, when I saw the review about "no good for floors'. Not so in my experience! I am back to buy more for another room's floor after installing it as my kitchen 3 years ago. It looks beautiful, is warm and softish to walk on, and has worn very well indeed. Traffic through my kitchen includes kids, dogs, workmen (construction project getting done and they need access through the kitchen), and there are a ton of things dropped on the floor, including liquids and food. The floors remain immaculate looking. The only imperfection, and it is slight, was caused after one of the dogs left a puddle on the floor over night and it soaked through one of the joins between the boards. The net effect was that a few inches of one of the boards expanded up by a fraction of a millimeter. Nobody would know it was there though,unless inspecting the floor up close. I couldn't be more pleased with my floor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Renter you can't get it wet - at all
This flooring is installed in a property that we rent, otherwise we would never own it. You cannot get it wet - at all. This includes wet feet when you jump out of the shower, small drips you might have off condensation from a glass you're carrying - nothing. I don't know where on Earth this flooring would be appropriate. We have had to put throw rugs all throughout the house to avoid damage to the finish - which defeats the purpose of living in a place carpet free. We are starting to see damage to the finish from inadvertent exposure to water - from carrying a wet umbrella into the house, to small drips from drying off from the shower. And to clean it, you can only use a mildly damp cloth only to clean up a localized spill "when absolutely necessary" i.e., you cannot mop this floor. I would never, ever install this purposely.
