Rated 5 out of 5Â by MakingDaddyProud Great choice!
I was looking for something that would fit in with the original woodwork that remained, and the renovations that I was making, on my 1930's Craftsman style house. This was a perfect choice in color, finish and style. Install was as expected, with typical 90 yr old home uneven floors and no square corners kind of issues, but still went quickly and without any product related problems. Out of 10 boxes of flooring only had 3 boards that had to be scrapped. I've already had another 14 boxes delivered to use in the master bedroom. Now I'm hoping other reviewers are right and the finish will hold up to my dog!!

I picked this flooring because it goes perfectly with our existing trim and moldings. Our home is 111 years old and this floor looks like it's always been there. Of course, I first ordered a full box and brought it home -- every piece was prime. Home Depot's pictures don't do this flooring justice. The oak toast coloring is very warm - not too dark. It does not make the room feel smaller and it doesn't have a reddish hue like so many mid-dark stains. It cleans easily with a broom, dust mop or vacuum. It does not dent or scratch easily. I believe that is the advantage to white oak as opposed to red oak and it's solid oak--not engineered. We have solid red oak in the kitchen for comparison. I'm surprised to not see our small dogs sliding across the floors while playing. The installers loved it too. There was very little waste in installing it.

This most recent purchase was our third. We originally installed the product in our formal living room, dining room, family room and main hallway. Second purchase was for the master bedroom and recently two additional bedrooms. I am not going to calculate the square footage, but suffice to say that we installed several full pallets of material.
Most literature regarding hardwood flooring will advise that you should allow for spoilage in your calculation of the required product to cover your project. With this product, there is NO NEED for a spoilage allowance. We may have tossed two or three pieces out of the thousand plus that we handled, and those had just a minor warp. No cracked or split pieces. No twisted pieces. No imperfections in the finish. I would attribute the quality to the WHITE OAK species that is EXTREMELY HARD. And, keep in mind that this is product is 3/4 inch thick.
Many oak stain tones are too golden, too yellow, too red. This product delivers on its name: "oak toast". Our color preference is what actually made this product a finalist for our original purchase. Each piece has it own character including grain, the amount of wire brush effect and a range of warm "toasty" color. Once laid, you have a floor with great eye appeal.
The finish has held up 100% in the areas that have been installed for two plus years. We have a two dogs whose claws are not routinely trimmed and in the family room we have not seen any scratching or marring.
Bottom line- if this color is to your liking and the wire brush finish fits your style, then buy this product with 100% confidence.
