Has anyone had any experience with the engineered click together flooring made by Husky Floors (Lumber Liquidators)? Am thinking of using this but would like some real world experiences. Does it go together as easily as it seems. Does it lay flat and stay together well? Any info appreciated.

Hi LDoyle,

I haven't worked w/it, specifically, but I've only heard 'stories' and can only share w/you what I've learned.

You really need a solid base. Concrete seems best. Also, you get what you pay for. You can't repair/replace this stuff. You can't refinish it.

I'm making some assumptions here. I don't know if the product is plastic or what. Just ask the Retailer about the 'things' I've mentioned (and make a liar out of me if you must.) Just because it's engineered doesn't make it a good product. Compare it to solid hardwood flooring and you'll get more answers.

My best to ya and hope this helps.

Thanks for the response, Jay. This product does have a real hardwood veneer over the engineered wood and is supposed to be able to refinish several times? It has a 50 year finish and seems easy to click together. Am considering for basement finish so the 'subfloor' will be solid.

They arent bad, just remember that they have one drawback that hardwood floors dont, they scratch real easy. I have them in my den, and I have cats, they have made a mess of the floor, and there are dents all over the place from the furniture, other than that they are holding up well, no shrinkage and they are still tight.

I've been in some Lumber liquidators stores locally here in Florida. They have a wide variety of products and species in every price range. It would be important to note that what may sell for $2.99 per square foot will not last as long as a more expensive product. I've always remained neutral to places like this and those that sell on the internet as it's definately a new wave for cosumers. One word of caution with one LL product and that would be their Koa product.

Always yearning for more information and knowledge for the consumer, this species has not been proven and is very soft and unstable. This information comes directly from some that have been involved in import species for 20 and 25 years.
