Comment:
I think the durability is overrated. Ours scuffs constantly with many different shoe soles. Installers think it is so easy to install they aren't very careful with it. They get bad results, particularly trimming it around door frames. We installed ours on a basement slab and was please with how the flooring didn't allow the cold through.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

any room
Comment:
I installed this product in a Master Bathroom myself 3 1/2 years ago. Went down easy, looks great and is easy to maintain. It is NOT scratch PROOF!!!!! No good salesperson will sell it that way. If you move furniture without something to protect the floor, it will scratch, but so will ANY hardwood floor. I love so much, I'm taking out all my carpet in the bedrooms and putting another color down.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Best Uses
Comment:
With less than 6 months white spots started coming up everywhere on our floor. After taking a better look at it you could tell it was actually clusters of scratch marks. We wear soft sole shoes, clean it with a damp sponge. Armstrong would not replace our floor after sending two different inspectors. <br />Stay away from them and their products!
