LOVE this hardwood!!
I needed to match my existing natural birch hardwood which wasn’t easy given birch isn’t readily available in the US. My existing birch hardwood is almost 17 years old. This birch matched beautifully. I could not be happier. We had almost no waste. If you’re looking for a natural birch, you won’t go wrong with this. The finish is matte which I love. Not a lot of knots either. I cannot LOVE this floor enough. I’m including photos of the new next to the old to give you an idea of how amazing and forgiving a natural birch hardwood is. Where you see the horizontal board, it separates the old from the new. In the last photo, there is no transition from living room to foyer.

    This flooring is beautiful. Adds life and warmth to the house. I believe it had a good mixture on the sizes, long medium and short. I clean the floor with Bona. It is very easy to keep clean. It took me a long time to decide on what wood I wanted, when I came across this one, I instantly knew this is what I wanted. Very happy with my decision. The reason I took off a star is that the wood scratches fairly easy. I put pads on the legs of my furniture and that took care of that!!

    Purchased 9 boxes and installed 8. Truly random lengths, not just several of a common set of lengths. Varying colors made for a beautiful installation. I held back some of the more striking pieces for use in areas that would be visible after furniture and area rugs were put down. This was the 6th click lock/tongue-groove type flooring I've put down, from the 99 cent/sq foot to various grades of laminate. I'll never go back to click/lock again unless it's for a room with very little traffic that I don't want to spend the money on. This flooring feels so much more solid underfoot and sounds so much better. It is a bit more tedious to install because it's narrow, but I was able to do a 12ft row in about 15 minutes towards the end, including selecting the boards, fitting them, and nailing them. The entire room (after prep work) required 8 days of working a couple hours every day. (I'm older and don't get up and down as easily as I used to.) The flooring went down well, there was a very good consistency between pieces in terms of fit and width. A few were slightly smaller across the width resulting in a few areas where there is a gap than I don't like. The next room I do I will be more aware of this. There were a few pieces that were damaged, but I was able to use them for end pieces so waste was very minimal. I calculated I would need just under 8 boxes for the room, so I ordered 9 and only ended up only using half of the 8th box (I round up when I measured and didn't take into account the door ran at a 30 degree angle to the room, so it wasn't a rectangle.) I was very careful and only miscut one board. I also only had to rip a few boards on the far wall. We like the flooring so much we are going to use it in other rooms, so we won't have to order extra from now on. Care must be taken removing pieces from the box, it is very easy to snap off the tongue or the top or bottom of the groove. I damaged the top surface of one board being in a hurry and broke several others. Because of the wide variation in color, I didn't bother to intermix boxes. As I opened a box, I split the box into piles of boards with similar lengths so I didn't end up with a bunch of boards about the same size. When I got down to a couple of boards in each pile, I opened the next box. It also made it very easy to find the 'right' board when joints might line up and keep from using all of the same color tone. While doing this, I pulled out boards with the best character and reserved them for areas what won't be covered up by furniture or rugs. A couple of tricks I learned. It can be difficult to use the crown stapler in some places and get it close to the edge because of the gap between the wall and the flooring. I cut a 1/4" and 1/2" piece of flooring and dropped it into the gap so the crown stapler safety would have something to rest against. It is also VERY important to start off straight. I had a slight bow and it took several sections of flooring to move the bow off to the end. It is also important to be consistent in your hammer blows for the flooring hammer. Several times I didn't strike it fully and ended up having to pull the staples out. I never damaged a board doing this, but it is irritating. I also didn't use knee pads, I was only working a couple of hours a day, a lot of the work can be done standing up, and the flooring wasn't that uncomfortable to kneel on. Tools used -- Flooring nailer (highly recommended), pin nailer, crown stapler (ended up using this one more than the pin nailer), dead blow hammer, tap block, pull bar, 8 ft. straightedge, framing square, carpenters square, measuring tape, 36" steel ruler, chalk line, cross cut pliers (to pull out staples), electric flooring saw w/carbide blade, pull saw to complete cuts for doorways. I used a Skilsaw flooring saw and found it extremely handy for this project. The only thing it couldn't do was rip long pieces at a slight angle when I got to the far wall. But I found I could hold a board against the saw bed and very carefully pull the saw across it, making small adjustments to keep it on my pencil line. Then flip it over and do it again. You won't find that in the instructions for the saw, it's probably not up to safety standards.

      The floor is beautiful, very good quality overall. The only gotcha is be careful to read the full description. The finish is NOT glossy, contrary to all my other floors in the house (it's kind of like matte). I did not realize that until the floor was already partially installed. Although it feels different, the nice thing is it's not slippery, and scratches are not as visible. If you like light natural woods, I would recommend this over more expensive maple or

        Amazing look, questionable durability
        I installed about 1000 sf in the entire first floor of my house. First of all literally every single person who has come in for the first time said something along the lines of "O my God I love the floors". They are a very nice warm color with interesting color and pattern/knot variations, but not too much variation and thus the overall look in a large room is very cohesive. They look very striking especially if you have white trim/baseboards. There is variation in the color but again I think it blends to a nice overall look, but if you want a single consistent color this flooring will not give you that. There are also visible knots in maybe 10-20% of the boards, so if you don't want any you will need significant overage. I used them and I think they look fine and add to the look, however I did strategically use them more along edges or under furniture than in open areas. The knots do not at all give you a "rustic" look. I would say the milling was "good". The height consistency was excellent, when 2 boards were installed next to each other there was no height difference at all, plus the micro bevels on the edges helped. The boards were also extremely straight, I think I had maybe 1-3 total crooked boards out of 50 boxes. The 2 issues I found were that pretty often at end of the grooves there was a little chip out that needed to be removed so it wouldn't clog up the joint and cause the boards to not sit tight to each other. I kept a 1/4" chisel on hand and quickly removed this if needed, not a big deal but pretty common. To be clear this was at the middle of the board thickness and in no way showed after installation. I also noticed that more commonly with the slightly redder shaded boards they were about 1/16" narrower that the rest. If you want a perfect seem between boards these would be waste, but I used most of them and just made sure a joint on the next row did not occur above these boards. I think you cant notice the difference after the install, but if you don't account for this it can cause the rows to get a little crooked. If you count this as waste it probably accounted for about 5% of the boards, if not there was very, very little waste. I would honestly say I had less than 1% waste considering I used one row's off-cut to start the next row. My biggest concern is the long term durability, it seems like this floor is dented very easily. I had one recliner in the living room (with padded feet) and after a few weeks of people leaning back to recline and slightly moving the chair it caused several dents (although you could only see them if you could see light reflecting off them differently at certain angles) still pretty upsetting considering how much effort I put into installing them. We eventually put a rug with some non-slip pads under the chair to cover the dents. There are a few other dings in places where things were dropped, not sure how common this is to be expected with wood floors but in my opinion the durability is pretty low. Don't get me wrong this is not a major issue and I overall still recommend the floor, but if you expect a lot of abuse be aware. I don't have a dog so cant comment on that. Overall I recommend this as it totally transformed my house from a builder's basic look to a higher end custom look.

        We are butting up to an existing floor and are attempting to match. Beautiful goods just didn’t have the natural mineral streaks and small knots we are looking for. Awesome turn around and unfortunately return ability - overall - best value out there !
