Rated 5 out of 5 by Nelli Better than any Laminate we have had
We live on a lake and the amount of sand tracked in likely more than if we lived in an urban area. So durability and ease of care are paramount in our flooring choice.
We have had laminate flooring in our home since it first came on the market with planks that glued together. Then there was a flood that changed everything so we had to get the next generation of laminate which was the click and lock. Each of these were the mid to upper end of laminates at the time. Over the years we did several remodeling projects and it was time to update the flooring. Two years ago we started the search for the perfect flooring. We knew we did not want carpet and over the years we have had hardwoods, which we loved and then switched to laminates which were very practical when the kids were little. These products are all very different today from the past in each category. It is clear there is no perfect type of floor that will stand up to the everyday use AND provide minimal maintenance with maximum durability. Since hardwoods are very expensive to buy and have installed and receive lots of day to day care and tiles or stone do not offer what we wanted in warmth of appearance, engineered hardwoods are beautiful but do not offer the other durability features we wanted so we looked at "real" reclaimed woods and found the prices to be cost prohibitive so we put our search on hold. Then one day walking down the main street of our town we saw a new flooring shop, stopped to look in their window and my hubby spotted the "Architectural Remnants" on the floor of their store! "There it is I want that floor." The next day we went in picked up a sample and the rest is history. We have had the floor in now for about 2 months. It is quiet to walk on. It looks perfect with our assortment of antique and newer furniture pieces. It is easy to clean with a duster type mop and then sweep up or vacuum. For spills I have a rag handy and wipe them right away and use a bit of water to clean any debris and then wipe dry. This floor is a low shine finish so it has the 'look' of an oiled floor giving it a more authentic appearance. The installer was careful to use the colors and assorted sizes to give it a true 'reclaimed wood look'. It is by far the best of the three laminate floors we have had in our home.
Everyone who has seen it asks where we bought it and how we like it. They are very impressed and I do recommend it if you like a homey feel and want a reclaimed look. We looked at the other colors and types of floors in this same line and found them all to be quality but this one met our styles needs the best.

As soon as I saw this floor I said I have to have it. I had been looking for a long time but nothing fit all my qualifications until I saw this floor.It is the farmhouse look I love but is durable and most importantly is pet friendly. I also find it so easy to maintain. A quick sweep and I'm done. No heavy vacuum to drag around. Spills wipe up easily. I couldn't be happier. Thank you Armstrong !!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Msshell Excellent flooring, lots of compliments!
I purchased this specific flooring to give our new home the farmhouse look, and was greatly inspired with it's beauty. Each time someone enters the house, they immediately comment on the floor. It's beautiful and easy to clean, I use the Bona Tile and Laminate cleaner purchased from Lowe's.

by Patty45 Looks amazing! Love it
High quality and priced right. Looks like real wood and so natural. My installer said it was easy to install. I had it installed in my beach house and it came together with the white kitchen cabinets. I would highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jonesie67 Great looking floor but quality of locking system fragile.
Great looking floor but pieces of the tongue kept breaking off and getting stuck in the groove unknowingly. The floor would have trouble locking and then we figure out there was another piece stuck in there. This happened in the middle of my kitchen but wasn't caught so a board sticks up and there is no way for me to get that piece out. That is disappointing. Otherwise, we love the way it looks and we've only had it in a week so the durability and maintenance is yet to be seen.

by Ecentric1 Amazing Floor! Absolutely Gorgeous!
From the time I laid eyes on this floor, I knew this was exactly what I had been looking for to fit the "farmhouse" style and look my wife and I were shooting for. I purchased the floor locally and was able to install myself, having never laid or installed a floor previously. I was amazed at how easily the floor installed. Really, no additional tools were required other than a saw to make the cuts. Floor laid flat without any problems. Tough. Durable. Thick. And looks great.
Since I laid the floor around a month ago, not one visitor has walked into our house and NOT complimented the floor. We've had well over 20 different individuals into our house since we've laid the floor and each one has paid compliments to this amazing floor almost immediately after entering the doorway. The floor is an absolute hit ...and I knew it would be. Thank you Armstrong for thinking outside of the box on this one and engineering such a unique, durable, and outstanding looking floor! Our family couldn't be happier with the results.
