"Love our Bamboo Floors"
So far we love our Schon Engineered Carbonized Bamboo flooring from
Lumber Liquidators. They installed the floor and I have no complaints
with the exception of one area that is a little bouncy. We had it
installed floating on an above grade concrete pad. They leveled the
floors in the areas needed, checked the moisture requirements and did a
wonderful job. I love this flooring because it is wide plank, we were
told it is much harder than oak, the color is gorgeous and it looks
amazing. The only dislike I have is one small area by the bedroom which
is a little bouncy (which I am told is not uncommon in floating floors).
We have had it installed for several months and it is wearing well even
with our two small dogs who love to race around the house. We use Bona
or the Lumber Liquidators brand cleaner and I vacuum or dust mop as
needed (more often because of the pets). If this floor continues to look
as beautiful as it is and holds up as well as it has I would definitely
purchase it again. This is a 7000.00 investment that we hopes will last
a long time. Thank you Lumber Liquidators for all of your help and

"You get what you pay for"
We bought nearly 2000 square feet of this at around $4/square foot (now
they are about $2/square foot) and followed all guidelines on how to
install in terms of nail/glue down and using the correct underlayment to
protect from moisture. We also got this wood because it was resistant to
humidity, which we wanted, and turns out that the flooring is not
staying and is getting warped over time. Also, a drop of a fork,
literally, will dent the floor. They look great from afar but I
recommend people stay away. Easy to ding/scratch and warp.

"Almost made the same mistake"
Thank you - to all of you who took time to write honest reviews about
Schon and LL. I almost bought it. I asked many questions at the store
and found out they contract out the installers, and any issues with
installation have to be dealt with by the installation company not LL. I
asked about product warranties, the guy said they would send someone
out and assess cause of problem. He then stated three reasons it might
fail - all the customers fault (wrong chemicals, spills and dropping
something). If it were truly a manf. defect they would replace or
repair. It was obvious to me that their position is to blame the
customer. In fact the sales person acted offended that I was asking
However, even after all that, the price for the 5" hickory was still persuasive and I thought I would install it myself. That was until I read all these reviews! NO Way! Thanks again to all you who posted reviews. I am sure there are many more similar cases.

6,000$ Wasted. I will not sell or even give this wood as a donation with
a huge warning of the terrible quality. As others have said LL will not
stand behind the product. My very handy husband laid the flooring. As he
was putting the flooring down the kids, chairs, shoes, you name it
scratched the flooring so terribly that within 6 months he tore the
entire 600sq ft out. Lucky for us (haha) we still have 700 sq feet in
boxes. He stopped laying it because of the quality. While I dealt with
LL to see if they would stand behind it. No! And then our time of return
had passed and they wouldn't take back the unused boxes either. So
embarrassing when guests would come over and see the "new" floor. They
old floor we were replacing (engineered Walnut by Shaw -no longer made)
Looked so much better after 8 years of 3 boys and 2 dogs! No problems
with that flooring (not purchased through LL). We were replacing
carpeting with the new flooring and needed to put down all new since we
thought we had found a cost effective way to floor the whole first
level. HaHa! Dealing with LL was a nightmare! Professional flooring
guy came out and said -terrible quality! Going to write us a note if we
decided to take them to court.

I have just purchased Schon floors for my entire house. Has anyone put a
coat of polyurethane on it?

"Worst product in the world"
This is the worst product I have ever worked with! It scratches, dents,
and streaks. I have never seen anything like this. Good luck to anybody
who uses this product.

"First Time Completely Satisfied"
Very nice product to work with. First time installing engineered wood.
After I figured out how to cut the planks to reduce waste it was great
to install. The finish is wonderful. Great product. The staff at Lumber
Liquidators were very knowledgeable and supportive through out the

"Surprised by negative reviews"
I had Schon flooring (floating floor) installed in my basement. (~1,000
sq. Ft.) We installed the light maple flooring. It has been about 18
months since install, and I have not had any problems with wearing or
installation. I have traditional hard wood floors in my house, so I can
compare. This is not a product for high traffic areas like entrance
ways. People need to use some common sense when selecting the room and
finish type with this product. Does it scratch. Yes, but all hard wood
floors scratch even traditional 3/4 stock. Also the darker the finish
the more it will show scratches. The product is great, hold up well, and
is easy to clean.

"Hickory scratches and marks easy"
I replaced 2,100sf of flooring in my home with Schon engineered hickory.
It was very easy to install and looked awesome until we actually started
using it. Within the first 2 weeks we noticed several scratches and
gouges. Whatever you do, don't drop anything like a pot or pan because
it will leave a mark. I've had to place felt pads under every piece of
furniture so they don't gouge it. The wood is very soft and the finish
is terrible. I do not recommend this flooring at all!

"The Worst Product Money Can Buy"
It's amazing how all the negative reviews here (which truly are the only
accurate one's) are refuted almost word for word by "glowing
recommendations" for this companies products on this site. Obviously
these positive reviews are "plants", because Schon engineered flooring
is positively, without a doubt, the worst product made for flooring
purposes. This product represents a choice which, if you make it, you
will gravely regret doing so. After purchasing 1500 sq. Ft. Of Schon
engineered Koa flooring at Lumber Liquidators, relying on their verbal
assurances that this product could withstand the punishment possible
from two small children and a dog, I was left with a floor that had
multiple gouges, scratches and dents just within the first week (and has
continued to rack up damage at that same rate since it's installation).
LL's installers were also kind enough to help my floors appearance by
leaving glue spots over the majority of the floors surface area and ll
refused to offer any assistance after the sale! Lesson learned after a
much > $13,000.00 mistake? Do not trust Lumber Liquidators and never,
never use a Schon Wood Floor Product.
