I cannot speak to the quality of this product as flooring. We installed it as a bar wall back drop for a basement remodel and it looks amazing. We nailed into studs and used some construction adhesive for safe measure. The color and handscraped aspect of it give real richness and character. This is a soft bamboo and will scratch and dent fairly easily, so each person will need to decide for themselves if it is appropriate to install in their situation. For our project it worked well and looks great. For the price, it cannot be beat.

Scratches Easily, will dent if heavy objects dropped
This flooring is beautiful and easy to clean. Just use damp mop and the floor dries quickly.

This product was easy to install. We put this flooring in the guest bedroom/grandkids playroom and the finished product was just amazing. We will be installing this also in our third bedroom. I highly recommend this product.
We purchased this floor and loved it! But after we got it home and I read all of the terrible reviews we were very close to returning it. I called home ledgends and talked to a rep for a half hour about what to expect from this flooring. It IS like hard wood, its going to scratch - you have to be careful! If you know how to care for hard wood it will be fine! We have 3 children, a cat and a small dog and no problems so far (only a week) we know we have to be careful! My husband installed it himself in 2 days, the entire first floor of our home. Its is beautiful. We do have a small dent where we moved the fridge but thats to be expected. it is not very noticeable bc of the hand scraped look. And yes, it does show dirt/dust alot but we knew that and dark flooring will do that. Just wanted to reassure anyone that is thinking of not purchasing bc of the negative reviews. We love it so far! :)

Overall the product is fantastic! The color is consistent among the 30 boxes we ordered. The quality control is great, only a few boards had a damaged tongue. We did a straight glue down application and so far it is going great. I would highly recommend this product. Does not look like $1.99/sqft!

We installed this flooring in our foyer, living room, dining room, kitchen and hallway. It was incredibly easy to install, had very little waste and it looks WONDERFUL! It is absolutely gorgeous and seems very durable.

Difficult to Clean
This hard scraped bamboo flooring cuts clean, easy to assemble, and looks fantastic. In a few hours the floor went from drab and dull to rich looking. The floor is sturdy and has a nice sheen to it. In hindsight, since it is a high traffic area we should have probably should have used a greater hardness level as I did get a scratch in it already. We used Microban Premium Underlay and finished with a high white baseboard.

This wood surpassed my expectations. I was a little concerned because of the low price. However, it is very nice solid hardwood. I read other reviews that it scratched easily and we did not find this to be the case. If you know how to take care of hardwood floors you will have no issues. Also, we had no warped wood or issues with any of the boxes. In all we put in 550 sq ft of it on the second floor of our house. It was a nail down job that took 2 days in all. I would highly recommend this wood. Nail it down!
