Rated 4 out of 5Â by Richard Above-Average Quality
Stapled approximately 400 square feet of this product in a master bedroom. It's a non-locking tongue-and-groove configuration great for stapling. The color is a medium dark brown consistency and came out at the lower end of what looks nice.
It staples fairly well, but you will have some pieces that bow even after allowing time to adjust to the environment. It's easy enough to remove the bow and nail the pieces to the floor. Make certain you staple this product into an approved subfloor so it achieves appropriate purchase (bite) and doesn't flex and cause squeaks.
About 75% - 80% of the pieces were 49" long. One box had over 70 short pieces though, so you definitely want to "rack" the floor by opening several boxes at a time. You should note that on prefinished flooring little grooves occur between boards and those can trap dirt. On this flooring the grooves proved extremely small and tight.

Product was fairly easy to install. The only issue was that the long boards were bowed so I had to put weight on them to ensue contact with the glue. Over all the appearance is good.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by FocusMan Nice flooring but coverage is overstated
I've used Bruce engineered oak flooring before and am always impressed with it. This bundle was no different. But I had one BIG problem.
My project needed 32 sq ft and I had 3 sq ft left over from before, so I ordered one bundle, which was supposed to cover 30 sq ft. Since I planned to use the material end-to-end, cyclically, I anticipated no more than 1% waste. But I only got 28.25 sq ft of coverage with the bundle. What the heck? Then I realized they count the tongue in the coverage, which obviously does NOT contribute to floor space! If you are a normal contractor and go by the rule of "buy 10% extra", you'd never notice this. But if you plan too carefully you get shortchanged. By about 6%. I was really annoyed - there is NO REASON to play number games like that.
This is an excellent product, love the finish, easy to install (glue it down with polyurethane), and inexpensive. I'd give it a 5 if it wasn't for the company's deceitfulness in coverage. Hey guys, tell us like it is and let us decide how we do our planning.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Woody Ordering details and color matching
I ordered this along with 2 other wood flooring products, not being able to see any of the products in person.
I already have a 12 year old wood floor from another manufacturer of a Butterscotch color.
The planks are the same shade and color even though they are Wheat. I also ordered a reducer molding in Butterscotch (TRSROBC7055) that matched perfectly even though it is from a different manufacturer.
You can use a stair nose (LM6667) if needed as it may be the only option for fit. I had to strip and re-stain to match.
