"Leave it on the shelf because you don't want it."
Doesn't lock together properly and breaks way to easily. Straight up garbage for a middle to upper end price. At least when a customer goes cheap there's a reason for the failure of the flooring.

"Horrible"
Was told and sold on buying this horrible flooring. Kept breaking very easy, not easy to install, flimsy, pricey for quality, looks good when finally got it down but I can tell I'm gonna have problems with it I'll buy different brand for the rest of the house

Review:
"Great Lakes vinyl flooring"
Great Lakes vinyl flooring is the worst flooring I have ever used. I would give it a negative 10 if that was an option. This brand is Junk. The directions states "just snaps in place" for easy installation. This statement alone is false! Its not easy at all, once you get it into place you will struggle to keep it down-it pops up' even when you follow all the manufacture instructions. Be very careful ends will crack off! The floor panels won't stay together, they chips and cracks very easily. I know how to install flooring, this is not my first time installing vinyl flooring, this is the worst of the worst to work with. I would not recommend "Great Lakes Flooring"! Do Not Buy!

"Floors of distinction sucks"
I purchase 1000 square feet of the hanscraped acacia, and 360 sq ft of the mocha, some of the acacia is lifting after only two years, i went to buy more to replace it and i was told it was discontinued and no one even has old stock! what about the warranty? who is going to stand behind the flooring? am i suppose to rip up all the flooring and buy another brand and just burn the floors of distinction? i think it is poor of a company to discontinue an item without having some kind extra stock for replacement? what kind of a company is this? very very dissapointed in them and menards.

Review:
"Absolute garbage"
I will never buy this brand of flooring again. The flooring is extremely hard, which is great. But in the process of that hardening the locking tabs are extremely brittle. I am putting this in my hallway and kitchen, and wish I had never made this purchase. I am 3/4 of the way done, which is a feat that I have made it this far. I refuse to use a rubber mallet on this flooring for fear the locking tabs will break, they have broke just trying to install by hand, I have installed laminate flooring without having the problems I have encountered with this flooring. At this point, I think this would look better laying in the street.

Review:
"Worst flooring we ever bought"
First off we have been wanting new wood floors for years! What was suppost to be an exciting event turned into a nightmare. the flooring contractor told us that the flooring won't stay together after about the 3rd row. The contractor did get the floor halfway finished and took him 3 times as long to get halfway done. Well the floors would not stay together. We had 3 other contractors look at halfway finished flooring and all 3 did measurments etc etc and pointed out boards are warped and the super cheap! we paid almost 4$ a square foot. so wasn't that cheap. keep reading! Great lakes sent out a neutral inspector which is a scam! I watched the flooring inspector pick thru boards and find 8 good boards put them together and took pics so it looks like the flooring is good 1st scam! I pointed out at least 15 warped boards which he ignored. He measured floor for. drop ratio and I looked at his yard stick and it was bent to look like floor was off 2nd scam. I asked to see the fake inspectors yard stick and put a level on it and it was an 1/8 off which I pointed out! I took pics of everything.. Great lakes is a scam !! We are out 3000 and now we have the pleasure of tearing out crap garbage boards and start all over. The good part is menards offers to take back the garbage flooring and give us a return. (thank you Eric and menards) bad part is I have spent an extra 40 hours and 3000 which I'm out. the flooring looked nice in store when we received flooring the color wasn't even close and you can peel the hardwood off with finger nails. They stated its made in america but ots made in china and they cut the boards here are. stay away from Milligan and great lakes scam...

"Big look, Bigger Dissapointment"
My Great Lakes flooring is a hardwood plank. At 26 months old the stain has come off most of the boards. It also has lifted and split the boards, I am stuck now between Menards not doing a thing to help me, and the Mfgr. I hope to have someone actually care about this clearly defective product! With a 50 year warrenty, one would think I should have better customer treatment in resolving this unfortunate issue!

"Poor quality"
The flooring won't stay hooked together. Some planks are wider than others. Lots of slivers on the edges. We ordered it 2 months ago and still haven't got the entire order yet.

"Worst quality and Menards does not honor warranty"
Horrible quality. Floors looked trashed within 2 years. Neither GLWF nor Menards stands behind warranty.

Review:
"Ellison House"
I bought this flooring at a respectable price for quality. It has a 30 yr residential warranty. The surface of the floor is soft and scratches easily. I am not pleased with the quality of the surface and must take a hammer to flatten scratches and a color pen to touchup after the scratch. I have had it for 1 day. I have purchased many floors and have never had a surface as soft as this one and so easily scratched. I would not buy this again.
