Rated 5 out of 5Â by weekender Beautiful, easy to install and holds up well over time
We bought this when HD first got it and have installed this flooring down over the course of 5 years on over 2000sqft. Over the years it has held up to the wear and tear of 2 kids + friends and 2 crazy dogs (heelers), a leaky roof, rearranging furniture constantly (just have felt pads) and in the bathroom too! We ordered extra knowing that we would need it for the rest of the house. Just got done putting the next to last room flooring down and you can't tell the room next to it was done 4 years prior. Easy to install. the picture is the 4 year installation difference.bedroom floor vs bathroom floor.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by sofro Looks beautiful
We started by installing this floor in the living room.It came out so nice we ended up putting it in all the bed rooms as well.When people visit the first thing they notice is this floor. We love the color variations & get nothing but compliments. It's been down for over a year in the living room and has held up very well.Looks the same as day it was installed.One thing to remember when installing- your sub floor needs to be fairly level

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Buzman Lots of color variation but otherwise very nice
Seems every second board is a different color. Some are blonde, some orange some have a lot of grey in them. Also color varies from box to box so if you don't mix from boxes, you will have dark areas then a box of much lighter stain on ten boards. If you can handle the variations, it can be a really beautiful floor, if not, try a different product. Otherwise a very solid floor.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BST57 Very durable and easy to install product
This product is great!! I have now installed this wood flooring in 4 rooms over the years and it continues to look great and hold up well. Still looks brand new. Installation is simple if you have the right tools. I purchased a Dremel oscillating saw for cutting the doorway moldings (I would recommend this purchase). A rubber mallet and a tool for hammering the end joints tightly together was also necessary. To keep the 3/8" around the ends, I used 1.5" x 3/8" pine molding strips. Hope this helps anyone thinking about doing this yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MrElectricity thickest click-lock,nice color but varies,NOT engineered
Although the listing original said "engineered" and the box shows that as well, this is not really an engineered flooring other than it is layers of man-made mixed with natural wood. (according to the flooring manager at the local HD, and Wiki - engineered should be layers of real wood - like plywood.) It is the thickest click-lock I've seen anywhere, but is made of a wood layer, folowed by HDF, another wood layer, HDF, then the finish wood. It "clicked" together perfectly and there was very little waste. My son and I installed over 500 SF in 10 hours. There are a few "bouncy" sections which will hopefully settle in time. Any flawed pieces were used in a closet, or simply cut at the defect and used on the ends. Be warned though, the color is not as uniform as the tiny picture suggests and this is "distressed", "rustic", or "hand scraped" so it is very wavy in appearance. Once I accepted both these "features", I was happy with the way it looked and ordered another room (at the old price of 2.49 - I would not have been happy at the new price of $3.79!) Another word of caution, HD will charge you 15% restocking fee if you are not happy and they do not always have the same product in the store. Also be careful searching since HD.com will often display a different item than what you key in the search box. I guess because they use similar item numbers for different products. And check and double check the specs. I ordered the "airguard" underlayment with this that clearly says .25" thick in the description, but really measures 1/16 thick (listed as 125mil in the details). Whether this floor holds up in my basement is yet to be determined. It is certainly not the "engineered" product I was expecting though - and I hate surprises when it comes to spending my money!
