Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rach12772 Handscraped Saratoga Hickory
Purchased this floor in June 2016. We were able to get a professional installer (not through Home Depot) to install almost 1100 sq ft (Living Room, Dining Room, Bathroom, Family Room) for $.99 per sq ft. Installer commented that he frequently recommends this floor.
My concern was about the thickness and durability of this product. I have an extremely hyper 70 pound dog, 3 cats and a teenager. We have had this floor in place for 2 months and I still see no sign of the dog ruining the floor with her nails.
So very happy with the look of this floor. All of our guests comment how great the floor looks.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dash This completely updated my 1987 mobile home!
I have done a lot of renovation to this 1987 mobile home. Laying Handscraped Saratoga hickory laminate was the biggest bang for my buck- completely changed the look of the home. Family, friends and neighbors thought it was hardwood. That's how authentic it looks. Best investment I made since starting this renovation. Honestly couldn't be happier! In fact decided to do the bedroom as well which I'm working on today.

This laminate was easy to install and looks absolutely beautiful. We had purchased other laminate 4 yrs. ago from Home Depot that went down horribly and ended up looking awful - chipped, etc. -was embarrassed to have anyone come to our home! We took that up and put this down and are totally happy with the results. Great price too. It looks like real wood and sounds solid when walking on it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rocko223 Love this floor!!! Best deal in the store.
This floor was easy to put down and cut to fit. Took one day to do living room and laundry room. This floor will scratch just as easily as a real wood floor so put some felt pads underneath your furniture and your good to go. Got a sharpie to fix any scratches when/if they do happen. Had a bad water leak/spill that got water under the floor and thought it was going to be ruined. I just got the water out with some towels and let it air dry and it was fine. Had some boards that were damaged so I brought them back to the store and they were replaced. The vapor barrier with padding was expensive but worth it, don't skimp on it. I would do this floor again in a heart beat.

I bought this laminate for our entire downstairs. It looks great installed but there were some bumps in installing. Some installation tips that really helped us (The tongues on the boards would break off quite often.)
1. When locking the boards in end to end, lift up the receiving end so the tongue doesn't snap off. Once it is over the newly inserted piece step on the seam to lock it in place.
2. In any area where you cannot lift eh inserting panel at enough of an angle to get it to fit into the receiving groove, you can use a utility knife to cut off the tongue of the inserting board. Use some wood glue and this should allow that piece to slide into the receiving board without having to be lifted on an angle.
Overall I would highly recommend the product as it is a great value for the price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jen Worst Quality Click Lock I've Put In
I have done multiple click lock floor installations using various brands, and I have to say that this was one of the worst. This flooring is extremely difficult to click and lock compared to other click lock flooring. The lips are very flimsy and regularly broke, and many boards were chipped in the corners of their faces - visible post-installation - despite careful handling. The only reason I kept it is that it was installed in a utility area removed from the rest of the house. I would not be satisfied with this in my main living area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsFireWife723 Absolutely gorgeous!
My husband and I were in the market for laminate flooring for our new-to-us home. We needed to replace 1,000 sq ft of carpet in the main living areas and had a small budget. I read the past reviews for this laminate and checked it out in the store. We were apprehensive because of the price but it looked so pretty in store so we decided to buy it. Pictures do not do this flooring justice! It's absolutely gorgeous! It took two people nearly 6 days to install it all, from removing carpet to installing quarter round on baseboards. It is very simple to install, a beginner can easily take this on. We highly recommend this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Flipper Great flooring for budget price!
picked this floor because of the awesome price and the on point color i was looking for. For the price of it I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. there were plenty of different plank patterns which really helped it to resemble real wood and reduce the risk of patterns being the same next to each other. We installed it in a multilevel investment property that we were flipping, about 1500 square feet of it total. we finished the renovation with the floor already installed and it held up wonderfully and looked brand new still in the end. only thing to be careful of is dropping heavy sharp things on it because in those cases we did have some nicks, honestly a black sharpie on the spot hid it perfectly. also as with any floor always be careful of sliding heavy furniture across it. Installation was really easy, only areas of difficulty where around some jambs but with some work came out just fine! Will use again and I have also recommended it to others who then purchased and now love it too! We just used the thin 25c/sq ft underlayment and it served its purpose.
