Review:
"Worst flooring ever."
30% of boards were warped. If warp ran along edge then you could not attach another row. They used to be excellent but since they have wood milled in China, then sprayed an packaged in the U.S. their quality has disappeared. I wonder if the warpage happens during their ocean voyage. Had to rip out 3 rows that were installed. At least Home Depot refunded our money, but Armstrong has not replied to our concerns. Do not buy this product ever.

Review:
"Very disappointed in wood flooring"
When we installed this flooring (my husband and son did the installation) it was beautiful. I was so happy with it. But, wow, that changed in a hurry. The floor looks terrible. I called them and the only way they would guarantee it is if they installed it. We were not told that up front and are very very disappointed. We don't wear our shoes on it at all. Will never buy their product again! Have tried the 'repair kits' and was disappointed in them also. Takes forever to fix the 'chips'.

Review:
"Worthless Warranty (and product)"
We had Bruce engineered hardwood floors professionally installed in most of our house 3 years ago. Now the floors look like they're 20 years old. It's just my husband and I and we wear nothing but tennis shoes in the house. We do have two 17 pound Shelties whose nails are filed down every 5 weeks. We've never used water or vacuums on the floor, but there are many areas where the finish has completely worn away and many other areas where the edges of the boards are chipping. Once the finish in an area starts to deteriorate, the problem spreads as though it's a virus. Some of the damage isn't even in traffic areas. A Bruce inspector came out and said something must be 'gouging' the finish and the warranty won't cover it. I don't think so! As a matter of fact, our kitchen also has hardwood dating back to 1985 and it is in perfect shape even though it's in the busiest room of the house. So we are stuck. We've ordered a repair kit, but it's not going to repair thousands of sq feet of damage. I wish I'd read all these reviews before starting down this path.

Review:
"Pissed off customer"
When my flooring was delivered to home depot for me to pick up it was suppose to be first quality but when I opened the boxes all of it was not even cabin quality let alone first quality and neither Bruce flooring or Home depot will let you return it. I will not buy from either again. Customer service was no help at all. I am trying to stop payment on my credit card for the purchase at this time.

Review:
"Quality is awful."
Flooring quality is terrible. Had to return 4 boxes out of 10. Worm holes. Pieces with no polyurethane. How does this junk get out of their plant. Btw: Bruce and Armstrong are the same company. Never buying Bruce / Armstrong flooring again.

"Try another product"
Absolutely terrible - wrong sized boards - bad staining - underneath was useless as knots had torn up the wood - missing chunks on top of the wood itself 4 boxes defective for 400 sq ft recommend another product.

Review:
"5/16 in finished hardwood - Poor quality don't recommend"
We wanted 3/4" hardwood and was told it could not be installed over our old tongue and groove sub-flooring. They then sold us the 5/16" finished Bruce flooring. They said it will be the same look and feel as the 3/4" hardwood. Not! It has only been finished for 1 week. We have snagged socks and there are little chips along the edges of the boards. It does not lock together evenly. It looks good from a distance but don't look close. There are chatter marks from the planer machines and pits from imperfections in the wood.

Review:
"Very unsatisfied"
We are installing 900 feet of 3/4 solid hardwood. Did all the prep and watched moisture. Opening the boxes was a shock. Many way to many small foot long pieces. Many boards had no tongue could not use some were not even the correct color of stain. What's wrong with quality inspection department. Boxes of defective boards are going back. Never again for Bruce. I've had the product down in one room for 20 years with no problem but quality was much better with that floor. Floor almost done, should have never put it down after seeing what was in boxes. We will see?

Review:
"3/8" stranded bamboo floor/pergo underlayment"
This click lock flooring was purchased from a big box store and professionally installed by very reputable installers who did an excellent job in our brand new home. I researched bamboo flooring at several stores before choosing the material and on must have missed the message when I was told that "we no longer have that particular product". My $9000 floor is merely plywood with a thin sheet of brown paper (bamboo) over it. It scratches easily and can't be touched up; has white fibers coming out of some of the boards, looks dull after cleaning with the recommended cleaner plus it crunches when you walk on it. No kids or pets. We have been here only 6 weeks! This product does not live up to the hype! Do not even consider buying it.

Review:
"Lowes made things right"
I told Lowes about the problems I had with the lock and fold engineered flooring and they are replacing the materials with tongue and groove flooring and providing additional credit for my trouble. Bad experience, but gotta give kudos to the manager at Lowes for going out of here s way to do the right thing.
