Questions & Answers

Q:does this flooring hold up well against scratches? Would it be good for a bar floor?
by|Nov 17, 2023
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for your question. Sahara is a scratch-resistant floor and has a 7-layer Aluminum Oxide finish that provides protection from every day wear. However, Sahara is not warranted for installation in a commercial bar. If you'd like to discuss this or other options, please give our technical services department a call at 877-630-1800.

    A:  Hi, this is anti scratch floor and good for light traffic for commercial use.

      Q:I just installed this floor a few months ago and it looks amazing. Unfortunately, it was received a decent sized scratch today. What do you recommend as a good fix?
      by|Oct 31, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for your question. Light scratches can usually be covered with a "touch up" pen of the appropriate color. Deeper scratches may require a colored floor repair putty and/or a stain. You should be able to find all these items at your local Home Depot store. Every situation is unique: if you'd like to discuss which options are best for you, please contact our technical services department at 877-630-1800.

          Q:What type of underlayment is best with this flooring, and what is the best adhesive to use?
          by|Oct 16, 2023
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  Thank you for your question. You will need an underlayment that is designed to be installed beneath a floating bamboo floor. We do not endorse any specific brand of underlayment for use with Sahara. If you need assistance finding a product that works with this floor, the associates in your local Home Depot's flooring department will be able to assist you. To ensure you are installing the underlayment correctly, we recommend you consult with the underlayment's manufacturer if you have any questions or concerns.

            Very good option
            The Bamboo layer is woven and great overall product. Installed it in entire second floor. Kids, cats and dogs. No issues with scratching. Appears to have very good scratch resistance so far. the product had some dents to the lock system but still installed easily, otherwise the floor was in very good condition.

              Get two extra boxes
              If your picky like me get extra boxes between the shipping damage and pieces I don't like (bowed up). You will need them. And what's up with all the wax on the wood. And in eight of my boxes they put in one or more pieces that were split in half that l can't use. I'm sure the floor will look great.

                Looks and feels great, but damages easily and takes extra time and thought to install due to extreme variation.
                So I have very mixed feelings about this flooring, the process of installing cutting and snapping is simple enough but there is quite a bit of color and roughness variation to the point where I couldn't always just grab the next board and install it because it would look to jarring which added quite a bit of extra time to make sure the transitions didn't look bad. Also there were a few boards that were so much lighter they were completely unusable only like 1 in 30 but still kind of annoying. Also as others have stated this product is easily scratched and damaged definitely not for dog owners, we put felt on the bottom of all the furniture and so far in six months it's been fine but it does make me nervous and wondering if I should have gone with a more durable option. On the positive side it looks and feels great. I would only consider this a good option for a single room like an office or bedroom, this is not a whole house solution and especially would recommend against using in a kitchen or entry way.
                  It's soooo beautiful
                  We installed this flooring in one of our spare bedrooms to see if we like it... We LOVED it. It's very easy to install and scratch/damage resistant. Before I bought any flooring, I took home several samples of different brands, wood species, and bamboo. I soaked them in water and scraped them with forks. This sample held up the best. Now that it is in our bedroom, we are putting in throughout the house as soon as we save enough. Please don't discontinue it before that!

                    Have installed dozens of floors from all different styles. This floor was easy to install but not what I expected. Panels did not really click together and found it tedious to try and get each panel to sit perfectly with others. Did all the proper prep but floor did not sit perfectly flat in several areas. If you are to install this floor and if I did it again I would recommend gluing it down to make it more secure. Appearance and color of floor is excellent. An excellent choice for the theme of the room. Have two dogs and installed the floor over a month ago. Seems to be holding up to them well. Love the Finish!!

                    It's excellent quality for the price. In terms of looks, it rivals $4 or $5 per sq ft flooring. There is no tongue and groove click locking on the ends of the planks; only on the sides, so we felt like the boards needed a couple drops of glue on the ends. I still would have done it all over again. Hopefully time will prove this flooring to be durable.

                    It looks great and was very easy to put down....
                    It looks great and was very easy to put down. I live in the northeast and was concerned about the warnings for humidity but we just went through a week of 90 degrees and humidity in the mid 60’s and I saw no change. It was a great price as well. It’s been down for about four weeks now and we have two dogs and I see no markings on the floor so far. We are very happy with our choice so far.

                    We purchased enough to lay 1200 sq ft and I'm regretting it already. It's beautiful, but it scratches so easily. The top layer is extremely thin and once it scratches the lighter wood beneath is easily visible. I dropped a fork and it dented and scratched deep enough to need wood putty to repair. I am constantly having to touch it up and stay on my dogs to keep them from playing on it. Very high maintenance and poor quality.

                      Installed the floor in a bedroom over 1/4” cork underlayment and white Home Depot underlayment. The floor is very scratch resistant and looks really nice. I was disappointed that HD doesn’t sell matching floor vents, 1/4 round molding or transition pieces (had to find those at other stores).
