Bought 30 cases to cover 600sq ft with 10% waste as outlined in instructions. Allowed flooring to acclimate for 48 hours prior to install over concrete slab in living room and dining room.
Out of the box the floor is solid, not flimsy and packaged well to reduce damage in shipment. The click lock mechanism is sort of a pain, but once you get into a rhythm, it goes down easily. Score with utility knife, bend and snap it...... Cutting is easy on the ends, a little more difficult lengthwise, but still the same method. Making cuts to go around floor features ie: 90 degree cuts are the same, score a few times with straight edge, I learned that using pliers to hold part to snap it off worked better for me. I did keep a small piece of waste material to use as a block to set the row of planks, as well as a rubber mallet to tap them in place...... You may want to slide the piece of scrap along the channel to clear out the grooves, I found leftover material in them which forced me to pull sections apart and start again.
Great flooring, I've never done any type of floor, and it looks great, deep embossing, nice warm tone to the room now, highly recommended for the beginner.
High Quality of Material, Looks Like Wood, Looks Great
