Rated 5 out of 5Â by northernmichigan well worth the money
Product installed very easily. We found very precise cuts (not various widths as others have mentioned). Proper installation is the key - making sure to have your nails completely set and trim any shards/wood splits that might occur from the nails going through the tongue - then, there shouldn't be any spaces b/w boards. Pieces were surprisingly long overall - not boxes full of 12" pieces! More often than not, I had to open boxes to find pieces that were under 24".
There was definitely variability in the color That was fine with us, but might not be for others - - that would be the only reason to order 10% extra for waste. We ended up having the entire 10% still in the boxes. 5 boards were damaged in shipping, but we used them as cut (end) pieces, so they weren't even a wasted.
Also - we saved approximately 10% just by ordering on the net as opposed the exact same product / sku at the local store. That's a huge savings, especially considering the amount of time you have to wait for the product to arrive is the same whether the store orders it for you and you pick it up or you order it directly shipped to your house - - it's a no-brainer!
We'll see about the durability long term...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jec81 High quality flooring, quick install, great price!
We purchased around 500 square feet of this flooring to match the existing 60-year-old maple flooring in our home. Though the old flooring is yellower in appearance, the new floors still are a vast improvement over the mismatched hardwood and carpeting we replaced. We had contractors install it and they completed all the work in two days, including time to rip out old flooring, so it must have gone fairly well. It certainly looks great and shows no marks or scratches from install or moving the furniture back into place.
My only minor complaint is that there were a few discolored boards, but it is really the fault of the installers for not discarding those and choosing better ones. Overall, the quality and appearance were very consistent. I purchased 10 percent extra and ended up returning all of it to the store because there was so little waste. There is a fair bit of color variation between the boards, but that was what we were looking for to match the older wood. If you want only light pieces, you will need to purchase extra to make sure you get the look you want.
