Answer: 
I just installed this in my townhome on the first level, which is a concrete subfloor= basements have concrete subfloors as well. I would recommend this to you. It looks great! Just make sure to use an underlayment that has moisture barrier, or buy the separate moisture barrier film.

Answer: 
No I would not put anything in my basement but laminant or ceramic tile. Basements flood and water leaks with plumbing issues all the time. Example. you go on vacation and the ice maker water line to your fridge breaks. All that water is going to dump into the basement. Use a floor that wont get ruined by a basement disaster. Because they do happen all the time.

I have installed in my basement this year with the green mold proof under layment that Home Depot sells in my area. My basement has a walk out and I also have a sump pump. The under layment on the concrete and the Brazilian Cherry laminate on top of that. Looks very nice. My basement is about 700 sq ft.

Answer: 
Perhaps an explanation of underlayment vs. vapor/moisture barrier would be helpful. ALL composite flooring requires underlayment, although some come with the underlayment already attached. (Most don't). Underlayment provides:
Sound Dampening
Leveling of minor inconsistantcies
Added comfort
SOME installations, such as over concrete, or in high moisture areas such as basements, also require a vapor barrier

SOME installations, such as over concrete, or in high moisture areas such as basements, also require a vapor barrier to protect the flooring from moisture. Most underlayments are 2 layer with a vapor barrier built in. More expensive types also have one or more layers of soundproofing material.

Answer: 
Yes, this flooring system does require an underlayment. There are several different types depending on what it is being installed over. Installation over concrete requires a vapor barrier, existing wood flooring and tile do not. There are several 2-layer and 3-layer underlayments with the barrier built-in.

Answer: 
Only if it is installed on a masonry-based substrate (i.e. concrete, ceramic tile, terrazzo). In that instance, you would need a moisture barrier underlayment (specifically 6-mil, polyethylene film) on the substrate before the flooring could be laid down. Other than that, no other underlayment is required.

Answer: 
Multiply the length by the width to get the square footage of the room. (example: 21 x 17 = 357 square feet.) For 20% extra take times your total square feet by .20 for the total square footage of flooring that you will need. The flooring you are interested in will show how many square feet per box, divide this from your square footage for the total boxes of flooring needed.

It is usually recommended to add an additional 10% for waste material. If you are a DIYer and have never laid flooring before, I would recommend ordering 20% extra for learning mistakes. Read Less

Answer: 
Measure the width times length of the room you want to cover and convert those dimensions to feet (not inches). So if you have a square room at 12 feet by 12 feet, you'd need to cover 144 square feet. Then divide your total square footage by the amount of coverage per box, and that will give you the number of boxes you need of flooring. In this example with a calculated coverage area of 144 square feet, Read More

Then divide your total square footage by the amount of coverage per box, and that will give you the number of boxes you need of flooring. In this example with a calculated coverage area of 144 square feet, you'd need 6 boxes but get 7 just to be safe (you should always get some extra to allow for errors and also to keep on hand in case you need to replace a section of the floor later).
Note that if you have an odd shape room; e.g., it is not fully square or rectangular; I'd still figure the longest width times longest length and get that number of boxes. This may give you enough "extra" to allow for errors and keeping on hand, but I'd probably get an extra box anyway. It can never hurt to have the extra, but it could hurt if this ever becomes unavailable and you really need it later! Read Less

Cindy, I will be bluntly honest with you, I bought this product solely based on a previous customer's review, I am now having buyer's remorse. As it does look beautiful, but I went through an entire box of chipped planks and it is not as durable as a customer claimed it is. I have a dog and she has been scratching it up, if you walk barefoot on it it will leave the oil from your foot and leave prints, it does chip easily if a hard object is dropped on it and if the planks are not laid flat down and if they stay in the box for too long, they will warp. But if you plan on using this flooring just for looks, then it is great, however if you want durability, keep looking. As for the hardness of the product, the planks are thin and made our of compressed board, so not that hard. Read Less

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 189 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by easy to lay. The flooring was very easy to lay though it was not the easiest to cut lengthwise. The room looks beautiful and we are doing two other bedrooms. The quality was less than the more expensive brands being that it seems to be cardboard on the inside and not pressed wood. Still all and all we will still use it. August 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Inexpensive floor Purchased this to put in a rental. At $.58 per sq ft it was inexpensive enough. Not the quality as I have install many times before. Looks great,easy to snap together but joints do not stay tight together and edges are very uneven. I can see and feel many of the joints. This is the first laminate of this brand that I have had this trouble with. I will be watching very close my next purchase. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Can't be happier! I purchased the flooring on sale to replace the 17 year old carpeting and tile I had on my floors. It has changed the entire look of my home. I am so pleased. I enlisted the help of my son who did the installing, 4 rooms and a hallway went down in only a couple of weekends. I watched the videos and read the comments, the pros and cons which gave me a tremendous amount of knowledge and confidence that I can do this. I have 3 Shih-tzus and 2 cats, the flooring is easier to clean and I've had no issues with scratches from their nails. January 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extremely pleased. Very sophisticated looking floor! While I ad my friend install the floor, he said the installation easy. There was only 1 damaged piece out of the 20 boxes that I bought. Love the look of the floor. Very easy to care for. February 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great flooring really tough easy installation cheap price Very accurate and straight for a real good fit tight fit up easy to cut and doesn't split or break easy. This product is really tough with a great Finish i highly recommend this to anyone who wants a great floor February 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for busy parents! These floors are beautiful and not a bad price either. They are easier to keep clean than most other flooring I have encountered. I live in a 3000 square foot house with 8 people that is all hard flooring. I have to sweep and mop my other floors two to three times a day. These floors I can do every three days and they a fine. They are also in a pretty high traffic area. I am considering doing my whole house in these floors to to cut my housework in half. The fact that they are easier to keep clean may not be a big deal to others but for a mother of four who does most of the housework, takes care of an elderly woman, and goes to school full time it is a huge deal. Great for busy Mom's! June 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks good when down, somewhat difficult to install The floor looks very nice once it is down. It is a little difficult to install since it is a cheaper floor. As you are shopping, one of the most important things to remember when buying laminate is that the more expensive the product, the better it will click and lock into place. TrafficMaster being one of the cheaper brands on the market doesn't click and lock quite as easily as you'd expect. However, once you get the hang of things its pretty easy. Here are a few tips to installing this product. 1. Make sure you have a puller bar and a tapping block. A rubber mallet is also very handy. 2. Be absolutely sure your joints are perfect before moving to the next row of boards. If just one of the planks is out of alignment it will screw up your entire floor. 3. The boards are made in China. While the quality is decent, but you will get 1% or 2% of planks that are not within the tolerances to make a perfect joint. Don't drive yourself crazy trying to fit these boards, you bought a cheap laminate floor for a reason, just grab another board and save your sanity. 4. Be careful with your puller and tapping block, you can and will chip a few boards. HD recommends 10% overage. Thats probably about right for a higher quality floor. Plan 15% for this one. 5. Get a decent saw blade before you start. Laminate floor really does a number on your blade, but starting with a sharp blade will keep your cuts clean and minimize chips. 6. Finally, get a little floor putty. Roberts deep red matches very closely with this flooring. It will fill miter joints and other imperfections nicely. January 2, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Slight moisture will ruin this floor I bought Cherry laminate at Home Depot in 2012 that was $0.99/sq ft and really held up well in our small office. When we did an addition, I looked for the original flooring only to find it was discontinued. I chose the Brazilian Cherry flooring and really like the color/gaining/and general appearance (better than the older cherry flooring). Problem is that 2 months later, the edges are bubbling up from what I assume is the slight moisture that comes from a swiffer and what the dog drips when she drinks. The floor has in no way been saturated or had water left sitting on it but it is bubbling up in several areas. The price was nice but it doesn't look like it will last more than a year (and who wants to rip out the floor and replace every year). October 7, 2015
