Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by msmegs BEST GLUE!
Installed 1800 sq ft of engineered wood for my parents with Roberts 1408 glue and it was a giant pain to work with. Even after OCD cleaning with mineral spirits as we went, it still left permanent residue on the flooring. My husband and I tried this Taylor glue when we installed our own flooring this week (2000 sq ft) and it is hands down superior! Almost no odor, easy to work with, no mess... Its perfect! Have never been more compelled to write a product review... Please learn from our "trial and error" and go with this product. Or at least avoid that Roberts junk at all costs. This stuff is worth every penny. So glad we found it!

This adhesive is amazing. I used it for a hardwood install on a subfloor. It was so easy to use and pretty easy clean up. And does it hold - make sure you are ready! I had one board slighlty off of its tongue and groove and it was hard to pick back up but I did it with a little elbow grease. The floor looks great and I am very pleased with the product. I wish it was sold in 5 gal instead of 4 gal because I did need 5gal but it's ok.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DA Bamboo flooring adhesive
Product is easier to use than others, especially for cleanup. The cost is still real steep at $150 for 4 gallons. Make sure to do a lot of flooring at once so you only have to open it 2-3 times. When exposed to air, it gets lumpy and non tacky. Need to also put the clear plastic topper on the very top of the adhesive when resealing it.
You also need to get very good coverage on majority of board. It is not some some adhesive where it just needs it in a few spots. Not as adhesive and sticky as most glues but then not as messy either.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Torque Seems to Bonds Well But ! ! !
I gave this a ONE STAR because when opened it was dry and crusty on top. It came from the retailer I bought my Bamboo flooring from - (iFLOOR) not Home Depot. Might be that it was old but I had to waste a considerable amount to get to where I could use it and there were still small lumpy pieces in the glue. Maybe Taylor should have an expiration date on the adhesive, it certainly should have been ready to use when the bucket was opened.
I'm ordering more from Home Depot to finish the job. I will however, have the bucket opened at the store to make sure I don't get another crusty batch. I will update this review at a later time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrDoItYourself Great buy.
I am not a pro at installing wood floors but I have installed floors in my home and have used another more expensive product. MS plus was by far the easier product to work with. It gave more time to work with in between spreading and laying the floor, it was easier to spread and most importantly, to me, it was odorless and I did not have to worry about those harmful fumes that other adhesives expose you to. And it was also easier to clean up my tools , hands and any unwanted drips from your new floor. Now let us see how it will stand the test of time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Josh Best engineered floor glue around
Less toxic than urethane based floor adhesive, and stronger/faster than the water based kinds, it goes on easily and if you leave the smaller tabs on the included trowel blade, will even provide a moisture barrier. The caveat is that if you use the included trowel blade as is (without cutting the tabs off) then while it's an effective moisture barrier, you also go through produce very quickly. It ends up taking me about 2 buckets for a 12x14 bedroom, 3 for my living room.
Cleanup is more difficult because it's not water soluble - you either wipe it off or wait until it balls up and falls off. I have no concerns about this glue holding, whatsoever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TxLonghorn99 Great product - And I would know!!!
I found this product to be very easy to use and I am very happy with the results.
A few years ago, I laid a hardwood floor in a downstairs hallway over a concrete floor. Within a few days, my floor sounded like a rice cereal when we walked on it - snap, crackle, pop. It was extremely annoying. The glue I bought off the shelf at the home center didn't work well and I was very unhappy. I tried to repair it by drilling small holes and squeezing in glue. That didn't really work. I had to live with this annoyance for years!
In May we had some water leak into our house during a heavy rain storm and it ruined the flooring in that hall. Yippee!! I had a chance to fix the popping on the floor. But I doubted my ability to do the job and considered calling in a professional. Then I found this product and the reviews made it sound great. I decided to give it a try.
I ordered the glue and it was delivered to my house. The bucket was in a brown box and when I opened the bucket I could tell it had been on its side during transportation. Some of the glue had spilled over the plastic shield inside the bucket. No big deal.
I spread the glue on my clean concrete using the recommended trowel. It went on easily. The one thing I didn't like is that it is not water-based. I used turpentine to clean up small patches of glue and it came off easily. The flooring went down like a breeze. I had to remove one of the boards just after I laid it and I could see how well the glue was spreading out during installation. It looked great.
I finished laying the floor and let it cure. I was very anxious to see if the snap, crackle, pop would come back. To my delight, the flooring was perfect! I am so happy with the results. I literally walk up and down the hall in my socks admiring it.
This is a great products and I highly recommend it. Follow the directions and do the proper prep on your concrete and you won't be disappointed.
