"Another unsatisfied floor"
Bought top tier Bruce flooring. It is junk. Cracked boards, uneven cuts, warped boards, splintered, you name a problem, i've seen it on this job. Finishing this room and taking it back for the other two rooms. No support from lowes or bruce. Send pictures is all they say. Never again.

"Donít buy!"
Bruce uses soooo much filler putty on their boards. After spending over 10,000 on floors I had to have many boards pulled and redone because it looked horrible. I even used what Bruce considers, ďbestĒ. I would never buy Bruce again. They know you wonít buy from them again, but itís too late after the floors are in. Donít make the same mistake we did.

"Total garbage -5 stars"
If you like mostly crooked mis-milled boards that are 5 inches wide on one end and 4&3/4 inches on the other end over a 12 inch span this is the wood for you. Diagonally cut end joints make impossible to get a seamless joint. 1 or two degree opposite angled edges on either side of the boards lets you know there is a quality control problem. The stuff sat for two weeks and the moisture difference was 0 between it and the subfloor. Just $5 per sq. foot total garbage.

"Different widths in Bruce flooring"
I bought 6 boxes of Bruce 3.5" x 3/4" hardwood oak flooring in the dark cherry colour. As it states on the box, I opened each box and mixed up the product to account for any variance in colour. I was happy with the colour. I started installing the boards only to find that the widths were different. I had nailed down 6 rows and then had to take up the boards I had put down and measure each board. The difference in width was up to 5mm! This is incredible! I had to spend an entire day matching up all the pieces to ensure the widths were as close as possible in order to have as few gaps as possible. This is not a good product and I would not buy it again.

Review:
"Junk Wood"
Purchased from Lowes, they decline responsibility (the vendor rule). Bruce display a first class product on the display board. What we got was a floor that have has 131 subsurface defects (to include holes that are through to the sub floor) that are not filled in 1100 sq ft of flooring. A very obvious bait and switch by Armstrong the parent company. Filed complaint and inspector noted 1/3 of floor with bad milling. Bruce says the milling is within their standards. I guess their inspector is wrong. Failed to mention subsurface defects. Now Bruce says I can get my own inspection and refile and hope Do not buy this product. Shame on Lowes for being a part of this fraud!!

"Update on Lowe's inspection"
This is an update on my previous review. The initial reason Bruce's was not responsible for the floors cracking was that they said I had mold. I do not. After the Lowe's inspections n, the reason is that my house is too dry! I live in Colorado where it is dry---why are they selling this garbage here. I will never set foot in a Lowe's again. The only reason this floor is cracking is because the product is garbage. People have experienced cracks in very humid areas of this country. Be warned!

"Not #1 Quality"
I am not quite satisfied with my new solid hardwood. I had Bruce hardwood installed in other rooms a few years ago and was satisfied with it, but this is not the same quality as before. The colors are very varied and the quality is not near what I already have. I didn't look for another brand because I was familiar with Bruce and was pleased with the quality, not so much this time.

Review:
"Worst experience ever"
I had a contractor install this product last September. First, he had to send several boxes back due to poor quality. Even the pieces he kept had issues. After the floor was laid, the wood began to develop long cracks. Lowe's came out to take photos. One of the photos shows an area of the wood that has a dark mark which the piece came with. Bruce's response: my floor issues are due to mold!!! It is total bs. When they pulled up me carpet, there was NO sign of mold. Also, I live in Colorado and it is VERY dry. I do not have mold but that is the excuse de jour. After reading all of these reviews, I am so disgusted with Bruce and their unwillingness to face that they sell a very poor product. They never take responsibility. Now Lowe's is sending an inspector. This was a project that was supposed to increase the value of my home and it is now a liability. I do not have a lot of money and this is a very bad outcome for me.

Review:
"Worst product ever"
Bought over 50 boxes of 5" Red Oak 3/4 hardwood floor from Bruce; almost 35% of the content was unusable: - curved boards - most pieces are short; in a box more then half will be below 48" and -maybe- a long one, but guess what; will be curved / crooked so you cant't use it - irregular borders some with splinters and the most annoying one, uneven width; so a plank/board maybe 5 1/16" wide in one side and 4 15/16 in the other so this leads to gaps during installation !! worst product ever!
