This laminate is amazing! The feel is better than most hardwoods on the market today, it's more durable, and a snap to install. The included foam underlay means no fussing with anything under the flooring, other than plastic for the kitchens and bathrooms. We're laying down 1000 sq. feet of this stuff in our home right now.
The color of the merbau is deep and lustrous. It makes all the difference in the world in the house.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by GaryRita Satisfied, But Not Overwhelmingly So
We spent a fairly substantial amount of time researching various products online and felt as if this product would give us the quality we were looking for in a laminate flooring. We initially thought we would like the Brazilian Merbau, but after reading the reviews decided it might be too red for our application. Therefore, the Merbau Block seemed like a good choice for us after consulting the reviews for it, and after repeatedly viewing the images on this website and on Dupont's website. It is disappointing that no samples were available for ordering as they were for the other Dupont laminate styles. We ordered over 1000 sf on a Sunday evening and the flooring was delivered on Wednesday afternoon....very quick service. The flooring is nothing like the images on either the HD or Dupont website. It is colored much more golden or Cherry....neither site represents this product well.
Having put down other laminate products previously, we did not find this the easiest to work with. However, the product seems to be of considerable quality, and now that it is down we are hopeful that it's durability will make-up for our other disappointments......our suggestion; order your samples first and don't buy this flooring until you see it in person.

We had to replace our 6 year old Dupont Laminate after an aquarium filter mishap. (Laminate does not hold up with water spills) The pattern, Walnut Block, was not available any longer, so we opted for the Merbau Block. It was the same pattern, lighter color. This product is awesome quality. Fairly easy installation if you are a handy homeowner. We live in the country, have two large dogs, and it never looks scratched or faded under such living conditions. We have had hardwood floors before, but this is much more practical and just as beautiful. We had to order online because this pattern was not carried in the store. It took about 10 days as we are on the West Coast. We hightly recommend Dupont laminate & cannot say enough good things about it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by frankiegirl After reviewing wood virsus laminate flooring we decided to purchase the maribau laminate for an update to our older home even though it was more expensive. the thickness meant that we could keep all the floors the same height without ripping out the old pine floors that were in too bad of shape to refinish. we were able to place this flooring right over the old. it was very easy to install and 'snapped' into place nicely. the floors look great (we did three rooms, closets included), the quality is top-notch and we've had numerous compliments on how nice they look. we are counting on duponts great track record for quality products for these floors lasting the duration of our life with this house. we would definately recommend this flooring to anyone deciding to go with laminate. the foam backing was an added plus and helps as a sound barrier.

I've had this floor in my home for a few months now, it wears well and it's just beautiful; installing it was extremely difficult. If you can get past the installation it's a keeper.

The Merbau is even more attractive in person than the photos. Not quite ready to place the floor yet but don't anticipate any problems. Very smooth and interesting characteristics without being overwhelming.
