Beautiful hardwood floor
We replaced the carpet in one bedroom with this engineered hardwood floor. It is easy to install. The color looks beautiful. I love it. https://youtu.be/oap4jGsNPKw

    Water stains
    I loved this flooring especially since it said 100% water proof. Unfortunately, it is not. Water was on it and left a stain. Do not buy if you expect them to get wet.

      Love Lifeproof Shenandoah Oak
      I made a mistake and thought I was buying Luxury Vinyl flooring…A happy mistake. This is so much more beautiful. Every plank is different. No repeating patterns. Real wood! My husband installed it in an enclosed porch…guess we’ll see how it holds up to temp changes. This color is very light, but that’s what I wanted

        We had a handyman install this floor (Shenandoah Oak) a few weeks ago throughout our entire house (sans bathrooms) and are LOVING it. We were between this floor and Malibu Wide Plank and ended up saving $2000-$3000 going with this one and couldn't be happier with our choice! The ease of installation paired with the look and feel of real wood made this floor perfect for our needs. Plus there was little to no floor wasted with the varying lengths that come in the box. We ended up returning our 10% extra (as it wasn't needed)! Would highly recommend this floor for it's value as a great option for engineered hardwood (so glad we didn't go with a vinyl or laminate!)

          This flooring is beautiful! We put the color Arctic Gates in our entire home. I have 350 square feet waiting for the addition that will happen in the near future. My husband and I have never laid flooring of any type before. We got half way through one room and I new I had picked the perfect color and product. It is not yellow or gray. It took a bit to get into the groove of how it clicks together but we got there in no time. I did buy the box of tools that are needed for this job. I found that the tapping block was hard to keep from jumping around and messing up the side. My husband found and shared several videos from YouTube and we learned that a small piece of the flooring worked better. I ordered countless numbers of boxes(not just samples) to find what I was looking for. Looking at the entire box laid out in your space is the best way to chose color. However, when it was time to order it was out of stock. I kept looking and checking to see if it was back in stock and eventually my patience paid off. I was able to get all I needed and then had some to return. I loved having the varied lengths to keep it looking organic. We worked from one or two boxes at a time rather than three or four like some flooring recommends. It really seems to be a wonderful product. We have only been living in it for one week. Time will tell but I am very happy with my selection at this point!

          The color doesnt match with the picture
          1. I wish they have more color choice. It took me forever to choose the color because I have oak trim and cherry wood at home. 2. The color in the picture of website is not correct. I bought some samples. The color I wanted is not on the stock. so I ended up with Tenton hickory, the color of every piece is different so much. As my picture below. Some planks are too dark.

            Way too soft
            After one week of use, in a home office and master bedroom, not super high traffic, there are large dents and a chunk missing. This is essentially a very thin piece of hardwood 1/8” or less over plastic. I have NO IDEA what could have made this mark, since we truly don’t have anything heavy and never drag anything in this area. Maybe a child’s toy dropping- I don’t even wear heels. So so disappointing. Go with laminate, so much more resistant than this. When we were installing some of the boards were splitting during install from hammering them together (using mallet and tool instructions state to use). Not dent proof. Not family proof. Do not recommend.

              Blanca Peak Oak 7 mm T x 6.5 in. W x Varying Length Engineered Click Waterproof Hardwood Flooring
              We covered an entire 1 bedroom flat in Blanca Peak Oak 7 mm T x 6.5 in. W x Varying Length Engineered Click Waterproof Hardwood Flooring and it is gorgeous. The only reason it didn't receive full marks from me is that it was a couple of shades darker than the photos. However it looks quite luxurious and doesn't have the streakiness or stripes that you see in some other flooring. I did have to search long and hard to find a product that didn't have that patched look of very dark boards and light boards. This product is uniform and looks high end look since it doesn't have that plastic sheen you sometimes see. It is an engineered hardwood and looks real as it should. Easy as LEGO to work with.

                Beautiful oak flooring
                I bought a box online to sample of the Ross Lake Oak Lifeproof Engineered Hardwood. I am installing in a house I'm renovating to sell. In the pics, I show the flooring next to samples of the Lifeproof Bamboo Hillside (laying on top), the Lifeproof LVF Fresh Oak (middle left), and Lifeproof LVF Dusk Cherry (bottom left). I bought a box online since they didn't have samples in the store. The coloring is midway between the Fresh Oak (which is more pink) and Dusk Cherry (which is more gray). The Ross Lake is a light oak with tones of very light yellow, beige. gray, slight pink (more makeup-y than true pink), and light brown with a very slight white wash. You definitely see more wood than white. It looks like typical French oak flooring. I love that it varies in coloring, but not so much that it looks like different species of wood, like some do. It comes in varying lengths. And one piece did arrive with a 1" chipped edge, although it was packed well. It is wood, so splintering can happen. Just because it says it's "lifeproof" doesn't mean you can drag something heavy across it. You wouldn't do that on solid hardwood flooring. This is hardwood flooring but thinner. 7mm is thick for engineered hardwood though. I also went to competitor (LL) to see a French oak style engineered hardwood; and it was was only 1.7mm of wood at the same price, and without the waterproofing or backing. It was mdf backed (yikes). The Ross Lake feels really good under foot. I also ordered Shasta Oak, which is not pictured (sorry); and it had a darker bluish gray tone. Not what I was looking for. I have one more ordered to sample; but I'm pretty sure I'm going to go with the Ross Lake. It's very pretty, classy.

                  This is the closest we will ever own to true hardwood flooring and are very pleased to date with it. In today’s busy lifestyle we really wanted a modern DIY flooring which had minimal care requirements but fit the rustic look of our home. The selling point which made us desire this one was the “no repeats” of the pattern. The biggest down-side to most drop-lock flooring is the frequency of the repeating pattern in our minds; that is guaranteed not to happen with this! The Janka rating was well above adequate since we were putting in our highest traffic area. Install went smooth, pieces locked in easily and well (we do own a CalFlor Adjustable Professional Pull Bar that works amazing) and are a heavy quality so minimal breakage on the edges and we were impressed with the heft of each plank being of only 7mm thickness. Only been down for 1 month and I feel it takes years to know the quality, but beyond happy to date.
