Excellent quality, and the bamboo is certified under CA law, which is the strictest in the country when it comes to the use of formaldehyde. I was able to complete a 10x14 room in two days using this EZ click to lock method.
Tools: Table saw, power miter (optional), tape measure, staple gun (for sound-proofing installation), hammer, rubber block (don't bang the planks with a hammer), spacers (to start your courses).
Steps: 1. Take out molding and carpet or old flooring to get to the sub-floor. 2. Clean-up the sub-floor (nails exposed, etc.) 3. Screw the sub-floor down (if not previously done). This will alleviate any squeaky floorboards. 4. Apply sound-proofing material. 5. Start your courses working from the exposed part of the room towards the side of the room under heat registers. This will provide some leeway when you are applying the final course. 6. For thresholds under doors between rooms, use the T-Molding. If necessary, glue a 1/4" fir strip and then glue the T-Molding to the strip. 7. Put the molding back up and enjoy.
Note: HD is still carrying the Sapelli hardwood flooring extras such as this T-Molding, but you will need to call the mfg. directly for additional Sapelli planks. However, HD is carrying other options.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JICJenny Does the job, but, be careful nailing it in.
This strip made a nice transition from the bamboo to our tile floor, but, my husband had to dial back the pressure in the compressor a bit because shooting the nail in with the nail gun caused it to crack a bit. So, just be careful when installing. A little patch of painter's tape over the spot we were nailing and adjusting the compressor did the trick and kept it from splitting at the site of the nail.
