Comment:
I bought this from LL a few years back for a bedroom that gets winter sunlight. About 200 sqft. The floor was installed over above grade cement. LL recommended first putting down a paint-on moisture barrier, which I did. I then glued it down using their adhesive. Installation was not entirely easy. However, it has held up very nicely. The only downside has been 'rug fade' in one area (e.g. the rest of the floor is a slightly darker hue than where a rug was). I suspect this will even out over time, now that the area is also exposed to sunlight. I have not had any of the issues other reviewers have mentioned, such as buckling (perhaps I was lucky to have level cement). I don't think it would do well with moisture though, based on some scraps I left outside - so we've been careful to clean up spills quickly. Overall, happy with it and am having pro installer finally finish a couple of complex shaped steps with my leftover materials.

Comment:
We glued this flooring to a cement slab that was 50 years old and theoretically was cured. However within six months it started cupping and buckling. We've now found that this product is extremely sensitive to moisture. Lumber liquidators sales staff did not warn us about that. As a result our warranty is void because the installation was not followed to the exact letter of their instructions. We love the look of the product but we are having it all replced. None of the flooring contractors will install this product on a cement slab. We highly recommend against purchasing from lumber liquidators
