Comment:
The product looked great in the show room and we were mislead by high reviews in Consumer Report. The Teragren product at $7/sq ft sits next to a $0.95/sq ft engineered floor from costco. What a disaster the Teragren product has been. I might need to yank it all out since walking on it damages and scratches it. We have had to put carpet on a lot of it to protect the high traffic area. When we called Teragren, they quickly hid behind their legal disclaimer that the floors will scratch and pointed us to a repair kit. Unfortunately the repair kit did not work that well. I spent a lot of money on the wood and installation and will throw it away in a few months. What a disaster - do not believe the 5 star rating of the product.... <br />They claim 5 coats of Aluminum Oxide- this is not true, I compared it to products a fraction of the cost and they do much better.

Comment:
I started out installing this in my entry, three years ago, just to see how I liked it. I bought it a local flooring company, on sale, but it wasn't cheap. <br /><br />I got Wheat. At first I thought it was too light, but I liked it, and the next year extended it through the living room and dining room. The cumulative effect of that increased area changed the tone to a perfect darker, honey color. <br /><br />The floor is hard and does not scratch, although with no kids or no pets, we treat it kindly. <br /><br />I was worried about dust showing. Every week I use a dry Swiffer to dust it. I don't pick up every item on the floor and dust under it, I dust around it, and it still looks great, even when I miss a few spots. Every few months I use Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner and apply it with a spray mop. <br /><br />Living in Alaska, it's extremely dry in the winter, so I don't have problems with humidity, in fact, I had to install a a humidifier, to keep the humidity level at 35%, to keep the floor from drying out.<br /><br />I love my Teragren Synergy bamboo floor. It's so much better than carpet, and looks beautiful.
