Had a sample of this flooring on my desk more than two years. Finally got the remodel going now. I wanted something very different for our bedroom and this filled the bill nicely. Used heavy duty liquid nails to do most of the adhesion on the walls. Click and lock the next line, level and square, and use a pneumatic stapler in the tongue making sure the next row could still seat properly. Some pieces were dinged in transit but used up on start and end of rows ensuring the planks didn't line up all in a row. Do it again or something similar? Oh, yea.

I used the product to replace carpet in an upstairs hallway. Iam average when it comes to diy projects, and this one turned out OK. Looks good and was not too onerous to put down. Many pieces were damaged due to packaging but was able to use around sides and edges. Strange that HD hasn't changed packaging as this is a consistent complaint I see. Also, as I have seen numerous times in reviews, trim pieces don't match color of flooring pieces so I returned all but the stair nose.

Had it professionally installed and the installer liked how well it was made. Very little waste. Sturdy yet comfortable to walk on. Warm and rich looking.

I found about 1/2 of the boxes had damage to the bottom plank. It looked like Home Depot had added a corrugated cover to the mfg package and strapped it too tight with packing tape flexing the flange edge of the flooring. I managed to work around the damaged pieces.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lori Love the look, product a little fragile on install
This flooring was pretty easy to install. It actually cuts much easier than laminate. The boards snapped together fairly easily once we got the hang of it. The only beef I have is that there were a lot of damaged boards in the box. We probably have a whole box worth once we collected them all. It is easy to damage the edges when working with them.
However, I absolutely love the finished floor! We have it in our kitchen and had appliances delivered after it was installed and had no problems with the floor. It has a warm feel to it and makes the room quieter. We are actually going to put it in another room in the house in lieu of carpet because I like it so much.

We put this floor in our bathroom. It's been down for 3 months now. Now, right outside the shower and under the toilet we put tile, but the remainder is cork. 'This is not a recommended install area.' Bah! It is a perfect install area! The cork is sooo warm under foot it feels heated. Much warmer than wood. We took a sample of the cork and put standing water on it and left if there for 45 minutes. Did not phase it. So, if you can mop up big spills within 45 minutes, no problem. And it is an great look! Does not compete with our large wood vanity at all.
Now, to the install. Once you get the hang of it, it is very easy. Yes, there will be small sections of broken mounting edges. You don't need the complete edge! Partial edges work great, so don't freak out or throw out these pieces. They will work fine. Material is very easy to cut. With a jig saw you can make really accurate cuts. I did not even need quarter round. The install was so easy to be accurate with that the base board covered the cuts easily.
I debated about a vapor barrier for some time. Our crawl space is dry, so it was not necessary, but in the end I used a 3 mil plastic. It only took a bit longer and I feel better about the install.
We love this floor. I can't say enough about how good it feels on bare feet!
However, there is a but. There's always a 'but' you know. This floor is soft. You drop something big or sharp on it, you will dent or cut it. I have! But I simply touched up the cut place with a stain pen and you couldn't find it if you tried.
So fear not. This is a great looking floor that is highly functional. And, it is not hard to clean, and hides dirt well.

Absolutely beautiful floor. The color is so rich! Blends extremely well with our hardwood floors. The feel is so soft! Installed very easily with hardly any chipped edges in our kitchen. Cuts easily for corners. Fantastic deal for the money. However, I would not say its' durability is what it needs to be for a kitchen that gets so much use and abuse. A light duty kitchen would be fine. We dropped the edge of our old countertop on it and it popped out a chunk of the cork - just obliterated all the cork in that little 3/4 inch hole. Understandably the old laminate countertop is a bit heavy but it hit on kind of a side not a pointed edge - like one would drop a pot or something. It was from about two feet up so the force wasn't all that great. Oh well. But I think we are going to be able to repair it - just rout out the ugly spot and fill in with a bit cut from another board.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hunter Product works well for master closet application
Overall the cork planking looks good and works well in a closet.
Personally I would not install in a large area unless a den or playroom as it is quite different in appearance than traditional wood plank flooring.
HD was the only place I could locate planks (5.5" x 36"). All others offered sheet goods, which do not look as nice as planks.
Unfortunately, some of the boxes had been handled roughly and some of the locking tabs were damaged (corners and ends). I had to work around where I used these planks and hope there are no issues later on.
Overall, I like the cork planking for our Master Closet installation. It has a soft feel, is rather quiet when walking the area and gives off a different odor to the closet, not Cedar, but different in a good way.
Obviously I have not yet trimmed out edges but picture is representative of installation.
