"totally satisfied with my wood flooring"
I have had my wood floor for about two and a half years. When I purchased my home, it came with wall-to-wall carpeting that was awful and orange. I pulled it up myself, and put in the wood floors myself as well. This brand was affordable (I purchased it through Lowe's) and easy to put in, even though I don't have a lot of carpentry or flooring experience. It has held up great under my furniture, but more importantly it has held up great under the feet of my three dogs! I love the color, it's super easy to clean, and while there are a few dings in it the flooring basically looks brand new. If I had to do it again, I would probably get the same brand of flooring but maybe go a few shades darker; I purchased the maple variety in a very light color, and dirt shows up pretty easily on it. Otherwise, I am completely satisfied and would definitely recommend this brand to a friend.

"You will never regret installing Bruce hardwood flooring"
I purchased and installed the Bruce Gunstock 3/4" red oak flooring in my home over 12 years ago and have always been satisfied with it. I have had numerous compliments over the years. This is the toughest wood flooring that I have ever seen.It is not cheap or simple to install but most things worth having are not cheap or easy.I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

"Easy to Keep Dust Free"
I have had my Bruce Hardwood for a floor in my house for 2 years now and I could not be happier. I have covered every floor other than the kitchen and bathroom with their hardwood flooring and it has turned out great. While a wooden floor is less durable than some other options, I think the floor more than makes up for it in other areas. Unlike a carpeted floor where you can vacuum over and over again and the floor will still remain dirty underneath the rug. A wooden floor is very easy to clean, just a few passes with a push vacuum and the floor is dust free. The floor does require some polish and finishing every once in a while, but it is no worse than having to shampoo a rug every year. I would recommend a hardwood floor to anyone who wants a nice clean house without a lot of fuss.

"Not for long-term use in basements"
This flooring was installed approximately 5 years ago. While the finish and overall asthetic of the flooring gave a very elegant look to our finished basement, we have had several problems over the years (some of these may be due to incorrect installation, I am not entirely sure though). Issues include: 1) cracking of wood in several places leading to splinters/lack of safety, 2) buckling of the wood so that our basement floor is very uneven now, 3) wood is easily damaged and gouged by daily wear and tear. We are yet to repair or replace it. I would not buy the same brand again; I would probably invest in some more heavy duty laminate or tile flooring instead of real wood.

"Pimp Flooring For Pimp Guys"
I bought the Bruce Natural Choice Solid Oak Hardwood Flooring at my local Lowe's. I have owned the flooring for about a year now and so far I really like it. Installing the floor was pretty fast compared to the carpet I had to install. The biggest thing that I like about the flooring is the fact that it is solid wood. It isn't your cheap and crappy compressed glue board. I bought some of that and it was warping within a couple weeks during winter. The flooring comes with a 25 year warranty which is also a good thing. The one thing I have to say bed about the flooring is sometimes it squeaks. My local carpenter told me that it could because the floor itself might have a issue, thou it is annoying when your trying to sneak in the kitchen. I would tell anyone that is in the market for a new floor, I would tell them to go with this flooring. I love it and would buy it again.

"Bruce Hardwood: Durable, Ages Nicely, Somewhat difficult to clean"
I've owned Bruce Hardwood flooring (in gunstock finish) for about 6 years. Overall, they're excellent and hold up very nicely to some fairly intense abuse (I have two young boys at home who don't take it easy on them). I really like the way the floors have aged. The grain has gotten somewhat richer, and the grooving between boards has acquired a really lovely dark grain as well. They definitely look better as time goes on. On the downside, if you try to use any cleaner other than the alcohol-based Bruce cleaner, the finish sort of acquires a foggy luster. It's easy to fix by going back to the approved cleaner, but I'd expect the finish to hold up a bit better with any type of cleaner. I did have to have a few boards replaced due to an installation problem (nothing wrong with the Bruce product itself). Replacement was OK. Due to the way the boards are factory beveled at the joints, the repaired joints looked a bit different, because they had to be cut to fit, and didn't have the same beveling. This is a minor issue, however, and is not readily apparent unless you're looking for it. Overall, I'd definitely buy this flooring again, and I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

"Bruce Hardwood Floors"
We have had Bruce hardwood oak plank floors in the living room, dining room, and upstairs hallway for twelve years. The installation, by Home Depot, required a new sub-floor which was an expense that we didn't anticipate. Now the floor level does not meet the bathroom and we had to install a tilted threshold. The floors are attractive and have held their gloss and not faded near the windows. They dent quite easily with weight from chair legs or from dropping heavy items from your hand. Over time, they have become noisy as the sub-floor settles with the house. I am glad that I did not put them into the kitchen since I do not think that they could handle constant moisture, although they are easy to clean. They have never required repair. I would recommend them for their appearance but not for their function (especially if with children and pets). I would rather have installed high end vinyl plank flooring.

"Solid wood beauty"
We have owned this Bruce solid wood flooring in our home for four years. I love the ease of cleaning and the durability of the finish. The floor still shines like it is new. Being that is solid oak it will scratch but that adds character to the flooring. The only thing I dislike about it is that it only came in the traditional 2 1/4 inch planks. I would have liked a wider plank but it is really not that important. The most important feature is that it is sold hard wood flooring that can be glued down to a concrete substrate. There are no squeaking or popping noises with this floor. The flooring color is light natural oak and will stand the test of time. I would buy the same brand again but perhaps a different style in a wider plank. I would recommend Bruce hardwood flooring to all of my friends as it is serving my home well and is beautiful to look it. By choosing this type of flooring you will enhance not only the appearance of you home but also its value.

"Breathtaking floors from Bruce"
Two years ago, we redid our library floor in our home; the flooring we chose was the Pimmit Hills Vintage Sangria flooring from Bruce Hardwood. The color is a rich reddish brown, with variegations that add interest for the eye and make the floor look deep, expensive, and rich. It's perfect for our library, where we have a lot of dark wood-and-leather furniture and a lot of leather-bound books. The floor holds a shine quite well, and is easily cleaned with the carpet/linoleum/ hardwood floor cleaning machine that we own. It's also easily cleaned with a wood oil soap, such as Murphy's, which I use every two or three weeks to keep the wood shiny and well-conditioned. I only have one dislike about this flooring, which is that it is somewhat susceptible to minor scuffing from certain types of shoes (high heels seem to be the worst offender). However, the scuffs aren't permanent; they wipe away with a damp cloth or a mop, and sometimes you can even do it with your finger. To minimize marks from furniture, we've placed pads under the furniture legs (like those designed to help you move furniture easily). The pads help chairs scoot across the floor without leaving a mark or a scuff. If we knew anyone who was thinking about putting in hardwood floors, we'd recommend that they give Bruce's flooring a good look. The price was very reasonable and the improvement to the aesthetic of our library was considerable.

Review:
"My Wonderful Experience With Hardwood Flooring"
It was about a year ago that I was nearly done turning my attic into a quiet study. All that was left was the floor. When it comes to the floor, there are a lot of things to think about. My main concern was the price. I took a trip down to the local Home Depot and started going over the choices I had. I narrowed down to Laminate, or Hardwood. On one hand, Laminate is cheaper, on the other hand there is nothing like having good sturdy Hardwood floors. I was in for a surprise when I found that they had Bruce Hardwood flooring for just $2.00 a square foot. I bought it and started installing straight away! I must say, I am not a construction expert and thought it would be much harder. The install was very easy as Bruce made a very good product without any warped or cracked wood. You can just imagine my feeling of awe when I was all finished and cleaned the place up. It looked amazing! I was very happy I bought the hardwood instead of laminate. It has now been over a year since I installed it and I am very happy with Bruce. The clear coat is very durable, there are nearly no visible marks or scratches after a whole year of use. It wipes down nicely and looks wonderful!So far I haven't had any problems with it and would really recommend it to everyone who is looking to go hardwood. You will not regret it!
