"I hope this company goes out of business so consumers can install a high grade flooring."
I was an Armstrong satisfied customer until this hardwood was installed in my new home. It has very little finish, poor quality, & the reps don't even tell you the product is good. How could you work for someone when they tell you the quality of workmanship is changed & they know it. This flooring cracks 2 days after you install it! I am now banning this company & will spread the word as bad news travels quick. I have paid to install it & uninstall it & will never buy product from this company ever again!

"Engineered 3in wood flooring"
Purchased engineered 3in Bruce wood flooring in Lowes. Had it installed throughout my entire house 3 months ago. I hate it, it scratches very easily and chips. When it chips it doesn't look like wood at all. I think laminate floors would have held up better and would have cost a lot less. It's referred to as engineered wood to me it's nothing but a cheap grade of flooring that cost quite a bit of money. I am very displeased with this product and would definitely say "stay away" from this brand. It definitely does not wear well.

In my opinion this is the worst floor you could possibly use. They will not stand behind the garbage they put their name on. Buyer beware!

"Bruce Engineered Flooring L3020-12d"
Any moisture on floor will delaminate it. Cleaning / Wiping up immediately is not soon enough. Looks great going down but will not hold up under any normal usage. Our floor has only been down a year and looks horrible. Independent inspector claims moisture damage and pets is the problem. Not sure where the rest of our proceedings will take us but it's not over.

"Purchased the best and got the worst"
Bought engineered wood floor the best they had 8 months ago from a local flooring company. They installed the Bruce floor and that went ok. This week we are pet sitting and the 20 pound dog peed on the floor while we were in bed. Found it in the am cleaned up right away and the floor is ruined. Life happens everyday and this floor failed after one accident. Shame on you for giving American made a bad rap.

We purchased -installed it and loved it- it only took a few months to look like crap. Don't buy it. We have to replace our entire flooring- waste of money. Don't buy it.

"Bruce E146 15 years and still beautiful"
I installed this flooring 15 years ago with a tar paper barrier over a wood frame home sub floor,I did nail it down more nails than usual because my old floors creeked everywhere.I Have always had renters in and out of my home renting a bedroom and they are rough on everything,but I'll tell you this is the most durable floor and most beautiful I have ever installed and no creeks anywhere.I Am not sure what the other people are complaining about can only figure they had a poor installation and or they are very rough on there floors.I Would recommend this floor to anyone,I installed in a 3 bedroom two bath home in every room and it still looks new here in Tampa Fl.I Ordered extra when I bought it and over measured so I still have enough to do a 180 square foot room approximate 12 x 14 room.Another thing is I always cleaned my floor with a home made mixture of 1 bottle rubbing alcohol,1 teaspoon of Palmolive dish soap,and a tablespoon of ammonia mixed with a 1/2 or 1 pint of water.the alcohol helps it to dry rapidly so it never gets asorbed in the grooves.I Then will take a dust mop with a pad on it after its dry to clean any smears to polish.

"Very Poor Quality Flooring"
November 2012, I purchased and had Home Depot install Bruce Maple Chocolate Laminate floors in my condo (hallway, living room and dinning room). The day before Christmas a guest placed their wet boots by the front door. The next morning I noticed that the floor had puckered slightly around the edge of two boards. I paid $3.69 sq.ft. You would think that at this price, the floors could withstand a little water. This Bruce laminated floor is nothing but press particle board with a very thin layer of so called wood. It looks nice but the quality is very poor. I would not recommend this product or company to anyone.

"Horrible is the only word to describe this"
I had this flooring installed in Feb. 2011 by Lowe'S. After first I absolutely loved the look. My problems were immediate. They make a popping noise (I was told this was normal and they would eventually stop), we can hear a cat walk on the flooring even when we are in another room. Four months after the flooring was installed, the flooring started bowing up in every room, you cannot walk on the floors with shoes withtout leaving indentations, the wood is spinting and the finish is coming off. After contacting Lowe,s, Bruce sent someone to look at the floors. Pictures were taken and the blame was placed on the installer. My flooring is now coming apart. I went to Lowe's and told them that the flooring was junk and that they should remove it from their shelves. Very upset with this product. It is very expensive particle board with some stain over it. Do not buy. It is awful trying to keep this clean. I thought that I was buying real hardwood flooring, which I had in a previous house. You cannot walk on these floors without leaving footprints, especially when your feet are hot. Class Action Lawsuit is needed.

"ONLY 3 MONTHS OLD!"
After only 3 months, my bruce hardwood floors are splintering! The finish is worn off in areas and simply walking on it results in scratches! I live alone and haven't furnished the house yet (Hurricane Irene victim) and still they are numerous scratches. The floor look horrible. Can't believe I paid good money for this garbage. They do not stand behind their products! Now I am stuck with these floors. Do not buy from bruce/armstrong!
