Rated 1 out of 5 by Beware of moisture The floor is beautiful looking and I was am so happy with the overall look of it even though there are not as many pattern variations as some other laminate and the hand scraped looks a little to machine made. I am not happy with the way the seams are wider, it does not fit snuggly together and therefore the cracks are very susceptible to moisture damage. I spilled a cup of coffee this morning, grabbed dish towels and paper towels in the same room and threw it on top in less than a minute. Used my fingernails to push the paper towels into the seams to make sure the coffee was soaked up. You can see in the picture how with liquid sitting on it for less than a minute it reacted. I've had laminate before with my dogs, and even with several urine spots from the little dog that were not caught immediately, I had very little problems like this - only in few places did this happen, understandably with the circumstances. This was immediate. I would not recommend this be laid anywhere there could be entertaining, children, or pets that could spill liquids. Luckily we are going to put a big floor rug to cover this area eventually, but I'm really wishing we hadn't bought this for the downstairs. October 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I installed about 700sq ft of this in our living room area. It was a dream to install compare to the low quality angle lock laminate I had installed previously. I only chipped one piece through the whole install. Looks and feels like real wood. September 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great looking planks This flooring is one of the best I've seen, the color is nice and it went down really easy. It has a texture that makes it look like real wood so even if it gets scratched u can't tell. See pics for color and texture August 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of money If you like walking on a squeaky floor, or wasting money, buy this product. Pure garbage. Ten thousand dollars out the window. May 19, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Disappointed in this Flooring Purchased this flooring based on reviews, the fact that it was listed as pet friendly, had a 30 year warranty and was rated as Best flooring. Within 2 months of install, the floor started lifting in corners in random areas. Am told that there are moisture issues but we had laminate installed previously and never had an issue. There is no water source near where the floor is lifting. Very disappointed with this product. August 27, 2013

Rated 1 out of 5 by Squeaks, squeaks, squeaks Purchased from and installed by Lowes. No one ever mentioned the squeaking prior to purchasing.The flooring is installed over a concrete slab. The Installers leveled the floor and used a 1/8" premium Laminate Underlayment. The floor squeaks horribly all over the house, not just one area! Had the installer come back out and he said that all Laminate flooring squeaks!! Want of waste of money!!!!! November 11, 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by Most durable floor I've ever seen - Looks fantastic! We got this installed by Lowes in 4 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms and it is fantastic. It's the best looking laminate I've seen. Since it was to be in bathrooms, I bought a sample & soaked it in water for 24 hours. It showed no damage. I even tried to scratch it with a dinner knife & couldn't. It did scratch a little with a steak knife. Since the planks are 8 foot long - the installers said it installed fairly easy for them. We had teenagers moving our furniture & they weren't real careful with the floor, but it held up great! Get a sample & try it out yourself. I would recommend getting a sample of any flooring you buy & test it to see how it holds up to moisture & scratching. We;ve had it 3 months now & I love it. January 7, 2012
