Rated 5 out of 5Â by LARS FLOORING IS SO GREAT I USED IT ON A SECOND PROJECT
THE MOSON SLATE LAMINATE IS A RICH LOOKING,EASY TO INSTALL PRODUCT.
I INSTALLED MY FIRST PROJECT AT MY PERSONAL HOME 1 YR. AGO. MY WIFE AND I WERE SO IMPRESSED THAT WE INSTALLED THE SAME PRODUCT IN ONE OF OUR RENTAL HOUSES.
BOTH HOUSES HAVE WHITE CUPBOARDS( FROM HOME DEPOT) AND THE FLOOR COLOR MAKES IT SO RICH LOOKING.
WE HAVE A MEDIUM SIZE DOG WHO TRAVELS THE FLOOR SEVERAL TIMES A DAY WITH NO SCRATCHES.
IT'S EASY TO INSTALL SINCE YOU CAN PUT IT TOGETHER FROM EITHER SIDE SO YOU CAN GET INTO ALCOVES SUCH AS WHERE THE RANGE AND DISHWASHER ARE LOCATED.
I'M VERY IMPRESSED.

This flooring is absolutely beautiful, and very easy to put down. I was hesitant to make such a huge purchase online, but everything came quickly, and in perfect condition, not a single tile was damaged. The tiles are really thick, and very sturdy. The top laminate is hard as steel too, and it looks like it will hold up under normal wear and tear easily. Here's a hint, buy a really good quality carbide tipped saw blade for cutting these tiles. I bought two cheaper carbide blades, and wore both of them out completely at the halfway point. Then I bought a good carbide blade, and it held up well for the other half of the project, and is still fairly sharp. These tiles and the laminate surface on them are HARD, and will really put the hurt on your saw blade. They are easy to work with though, and once I figured out what corner of the room to start in , they literally snap together. I bought a good rubber mallet which I used quite a bit to help "snap" the locks together on the side of the tiles. I found that by setting up one entire row, sliding them together BEFORE snapping them down makes a world of difference. I had no problem getting them together and didn't have to use the metal pry bar at all. Thanks to all who posted reviews here too, your insights and hints made my flooring job a breeze. I checked the floor for marks and scratches after putting the new refrigerator in it's spot (several times) and the stove too, and there wasn't even a hint of a mark or scratch. Like I said, the laminate is hard as steel.... These pictures don't do the look of this flooring justice because of the lighting. It's actually a rich dark slate look, and has been confused by some of our friends for REAL slate... they can't believe it's laminate tiles. Home Depot's online service was fantastic, and answered all my questions about my purchase before I clicked the "buy" button. Very very please with this project.

After a lot of researching online, I chose the monson slate pergo laminate flooring to update the floors in our kitchen. I purchased this particular product for several reasons:
First, it can go over linoleum flooring without having to rip up the linoleum flooring. The horrible ugly flooring we had in our kitchen was linoleum, so that was important.
Second, I loved the idea of slate floors, but didn't love the price. This laminate was the one I personally believed looked most similar to the Real Thing. Unlike other dark floors (like dark hardwood, for example) it doesn't show pet hair/home debris/crumbs super-easily, so you aren't constantly cleaning every 5 minutes.
Third, I thought the cost was fair and comparable to the quality I was getting. A lot of the reviews and research showed that this particular item was durable, and so far it is true!
Last, almost all of the reviews on the Home Depot website has mentioned that it was easy to install. Initially, my husband, family and I were going to install it ourselves, so that was important.
Luckily, we didn't have to install it ourselves - a family friend and my brother who do this type of work on weekends were available and they did it. Thank God they did! Our kitchen was already in place - cabinets, appliances, and all. We ripped up the quarter molding, and the guys had to cut a LOT. A LOT A LOT A LOT. Our kitchen is a smaller galley kitchen, so the huge pieces of laminate needed cut to fit the corners and angles, going around the existing cabinetry. Needless to say, I am so happy we didn't have to DIY.
The flooring had been in for 3 weeks now and I am still in love with it. It looks phenomenal, it makes a HUGE impact and has updated the kitchen about 30 years. We've dropped many things on it, moved a refrigerator back into place on it, have a dog and two cats walking on it, and it hasn't shown an iota of wear/tear. The individual pieces are fairly large, so I was a bit worried about what they would look like in a smaller kitchen -- they look fantastic! They actually make the kitchen look bigger. I'm so happy with how these look, the price, and the durability. The only thing I would recommend is, if you're a floor-installation novice, not to do it yourself if you have a room with several angles and existing structures, like cabinets.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by weekendwarrior Great looking, easy as pie
I did a 120 sqft kitchen in this and it took me about two hours from start to finish. I had no complaints, although I will agree with other commenters that their was no "click" or "snap" letting you know each place was properly locked in. I used a block of wood and a hammer to bang it once to get them set.
Once complete, it looked amazing. People have to bend down and touch it to see what it is, and they still think its real. I am impressed.
I gave only 4 of 5 for quality because it has only been installed for a few months. No scratches to report yet though.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by msa53 good looking floor
Looks great installation was fairly straight forward. Much depends on the area you are installing.Much is made of allowing for expansion but unless you are installing it in a room with a dimension of greater than 30 feet it is not an issue and having the boards sit without moving is more important
