Rated 3 out of 5Â by jmkle2202 Changes color .. beautiful floor .. would still recommend
"HL14P / HL14P Tigerwood 1/2 in. Thick x 3-1/2 in" - copied from my invoice.
-agree that floor does dent easily and hardness rating should be lowered.
-the color changes .. darkens .. and quickly .. in only six months.The areas that are protected, under rugs and inside closet, stay the original lighter shade.
A previous engineered floor did exactly the opposite.

The title says it--we are disappointed. We just laid 700 sq. ft. of this tigerwood and it looks cheap and has already scratched. Also, the edges at the ends of many boards are rough and do not transition to the adjoining board without leaving a raised seam.
The installation was easy enough, done by a professional installer, but the appearance is that of a laminate--there isn't the depth of solid wood.
Another very odd fact is that most boxes contained uniform length pieces, however a few boxes had numerous half-sized pieces which threw the flow of the install off a bit.
I would never buy this brand again and would recommend going with solid wood--its worth the extra cost.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DIYer Looks good, may not be that durable
installed this over 1000sqft using staples. it goes together easy and is generally easy to work with. check the edges and corners for defects, a small amount of the peices will have these. the layer of tigerwood on top is very thin, it is easily damaged... such as dropping a metal wrench on it. Once the top layer is damaged there is not much you can do other than lay down a rug. i imagine this isn't much different for most engineered floors, however for this particular one i can tell you that the tigerwood is thin and the layer of plywood underneith it is soft - meaning that unsuspecting impacts will cause damage. this seems like a floor you would not want in high-impact/traffic areas. i also don't think you should buy this floor if your hoping to have it down for 20-30 years. I'd say this is good for 5-10 years and then will need to be replaced due to wear. It is a beautiful wood and the floor looks amazing, however no shoes/heals or horse play seems to be the rule.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Angie Pretty but not very durable
The coloring is beautiful and the installation was very easy. However, it cannot be a "4" hardness rating at all. Our dog (he is 80 lbs) had it completely scratched up even before we finished installation. We had hoped that a 4 would hold up better. Thanks to the various patterns, you don't see the scratches until you are right on them...but they are there. some even through the top color layer. If you are going to install this in your house and have a dog, get indoor fleece booties for them to avoid what we have now. Or look at a hand scratched or textured version.
