Rated 4 out of 5Â by BigOberg So far so good
I installed this floor about a year ago in my kitchen. It looks really good and we get a lot of compliments on it. So far it's held up really well. I was a little apprehensive at first but with such a good warranty I figured I'd give it a shot. I'm really glad we did because it looks great. It's quiet and feels good on bare feet. I would defiantly install this again in the future. Although I would recommend that you make sure to buy some extra just because some of the tabs were broken on some boards. Not many though.

Rated 4 out of 5Â 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by CT38655 Extremely Attractive Floor
I am very pleased with this flooring. I have put down numerous click and lock type floors and this was by far the easiest with the best results. Everything locked together very securely with no gaps. Very soft under foot but without the movement typical with floating floors. Other reviews question the quality of this flooring, maybe because of the generic packaging. Maybe the locking system seemed to be of low quality but as a whole and locked in place it is very secure. I opened and used from several boxes at a time to mix the colors and patterns but really it was not necessary, the colors and tones were very consistent through all the boxes. Others also mentioned damaged product, I only had damage on a couple of pieces and they were the top plank on the box and they were turned upside down so the damage was on the backside and did not prevent them from being used. The damage on the locking corners others mention is not damage at all, it appears as though the manufacturing process leaves behind small pieces on the corners of some planks, I just snapped them off since it was obvious they weren't suppose to be there, no problem at all. Keep a soft brush handy to brush any small particles out of the locking section during install. I love the deep, rich color of this flooring, it looks like dried tobacco.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mowgli Best floor we have installed
This is the 4th locking type floor we have installed and it is by far our favorite. Following are the reasons why:
This is the quietest floor in our home. We have oak hardwood on one floor, 3 different types of laminate in the bedrooms and this cork floor in our master bedroom. We can barely hear our dogs walking on it. Had I known it was so awesomely quiet, I would have put it down in place of the laminate floor.
This flooring was the easiest locking type of floor we have installed. The pieces were much easier to join together than other locking floors we have installed ourselves. We were very happy with how much easier it was. For reference, we installed this floor in a 12x14 room from start to finish (that includes removing old carpet and moving furniture) in about 7 hours.
We love the way this floor looks. Our biggest qualm about getting cork was that some types can look a little industrial. You would not know this was cork unless you get down close to it and really look. The floor is really beautiful.
Another bonus is that it seems to retain heat well. I got out of the shower and walked on the floor with bare feet and it actually felt warm to me. My 11 year old lab mix doesn't seem to mind laying on it which means it probably is at least a little warmer and softer than other types of floor. He generally doesn't lay down anywhere there isn't a bed or couch these days.
The only downside to this floor was that it had to be shipped directly to our house. Shipping costs for 18 boxes was $54 which seems fairly reasonable for that amount of material but I still would rather have gone to pick it up at the store instead. I gave 4 stars in the "value" area due to this.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by arkwright very pleased
This is my first experience with cork flooring. I used it in my bathroom remodel. It looks and feels great. The contractor did the installation but it seemed to go very smoothly and was easy. I like that the floor goes well with the hardwood floors through out the house. It seems to also clean up easily too.
