Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my new floor! We had the carpet in our living room, dining room, bedroom, foyer and hallway replaced with Armstrong L0243. The floors look amazing! I looked at many, many laminate samples from different manufacturers and when I saw this, I knew it was the one. It had so much detail and looked so much like real wood, I thought I had picked up a sample from the hardwood side of the store by mistake! Seems to be easy to clean and polish - pretty low maintenance. The house is so much lighter now because the outside light reflects off of the floor instead of being absorbed by the carpet. I'm very happy with my new floor and hope to install this laminate in the guest bedrooms next year. January 27, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice but a change of pace We were replacing sheet vinyl and carpet so we knew it would be different ! But we weren't prepared for the reality of a dark hard surface that shows every light speck of material. With 2 dogs, a cat, and a 5-year-old boy, we have to do some sweeping/vacuuming every day or it is a real eyesore ! Once clean to the naked eye, it looks great. The other side is that darker stains or grime don't tend to show up, so you have to self-motivate to do a 'real' cleaning ! Also be aware that the small simulated grooves do collect material. Generally, since they are shallow, it's pretty easy to coax out though. In a place or two, it looks like tiny pieces have been nicked off by unknown objects. And it will mar somewhat if a furniture leg etc. has a rough edge, even one you may not have noticed before; so be careful and get some more attachable pads. Love the textured look and feel. We had it installed and that went OK overall. January 30, 2013
