Board-to-Board Color Variation
Board-to-Board Color Variation

Wood is a natural material that features changes in color and tone. The board-to-board color variation is more pronounced in some species, less in others. If you like the look of contrasting light and dark tones, select a species that offers most color variation. If you prefer consistent color from board to board, choose the least color variation.

Hardness Scale

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great look, but inconsistent coloring within 2 years We had about 1200 sf of this installed 2 years ago in the main level of our home. The look of the product is great and everyone loves it as they walk into our home. Yet, 2 years after our installation we have notices 'wearing' or 'spotting' . This are lighter areas throughout the install, not in high traffic areas. They are the various sizes and oblong in shape, but much lighter the the Bear Brown Stain that the floor originally was. It is noticeable to the naked eye, which reduces the great appearance. For the price we paid for the product and installation along with the warranty of Armstrong, this result is sad:( We live in a higher end community on a golf course and bought a product that would match hold-up any appraisal value. We have had a representitive come look at the floors. " He said he has never seen another instance like it" . Yet nothing will be done for us. I am not sure how we can be a rare case and get no assistance. We use a microfiber mop on the floor and swifer dusters. Nothing that would cause this. Also, since it is not in high traffic areas, it has us baffled. This was a big project for our new home.. questioning if this is a random manufacturing error. As I know it is a popular product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it While visiting my aunt I saw this flooring and it's awesome. She had it installed fairly recently and it looks great. I'm planning on having some installed in my home in the near future. August 18, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Looks great, quality control lacking First off, the floor looks great once installed. Feels very strong and durable. I decided to do the install myself over a 3 month period. For the most part it was pretty easy to do as long as you have the correct tools and following the Armstrong recommendations for plank flooring. The problem i ran into was with many bad pieces. I would come across wood from the same box that would be slightly thinner or wider than others. (and yes they were all properly acclimated, it took 3 months to install it all). You wouldn't be able to tell until you started the next row and found that you had a decently large gap where you could see the sub floor. I also came across pieces where the tongue would tail off to nothing at the end of the piece rendering it useless. I was pushing over 10% waste, i didn't expect this from Armstrong. Overall i'm not sure if i would buy this again, quality control seemed to be lacking. June 23, 2015
