      Comments about Dream Home - Charisma 8mm Prairie City Cherry Laminate:

      Never installed a floor in my life, if I can do it you can too. Have patience, plan to spend a couple of days if you are doing it alone depending on the size of the room. The planks are well made and cut fairly easily with the proper saw, make sure to use a brand new blade to reduce splinters. I invested into one of those all in one floor saws instead of the mitre and table saw deals cuz i didnt have the money to invest in 2 saws. Skil and Ryobi both have products avaialable $150 price range. Believe me it cut down on installation time a ton. Maybe someone can lend you a mitre saw. No,you dont need to turn boards face down to cut, in fact I recommend against it as the underside sends more debris airborne than the sawdust. Planks cut nice clean edge. If you tap the edges slowly with the hammer on the edges using the pull bar it will not damage unless you want to be a he-man and screw up your investment. I have read reviews slamming the install kit its not the kit doing the damage its the idiot hitting the planks too hard. remember you are not nailing into 2by fours, this is somewhat delicate process, take your time. I really like the finish and look, it is a more on the darker red shade than brown which is what I wanted. Acousticaly it creates a very "live" room ambient sound is more reflective. A few well placed rugs will solve that if using in a room with home theatre setup. Carpet will suck up low end mercilessly. I installed in a rehearsal/studio room but put professional acoustic studio foam wedges on the walls not just regular foam rubber to cut down the echo. Overall I am very pleased with the results of the look and finish of the floor. Its very scratch resistant but if you drop something metal or with an edge you will gouge.I slid various not metal objects to test- nothing, floor held up very well.
      I picked up my order at the store but had to wait 4-6 weeks for delivery from the warehouse.

        Product is lacking in precision and as such, the pieces do not fit well together. Finished product shows seams and will therefore become damaged more easily.

            Comments about Dream Home - Charisma 8mm Prairie City Cherry Laminate:

            I was nervous buying an inexpensive 8mm laminate. Thought it would be flimsy or have cheap interlockings that were broken right out of the box and installation would be tough because of that. Not the case at all. Went down incredibly easy and results are fantastic. Only critique would be the saddle trim pieces which separates rooms. Those should be wider for sure. At only 1.5 inches wide, they dont look as nice or install as easily as a nice 3 inch saddle would. I would also recommend putting in new mouldings if you can. I used new in one room but 3/4 round with existing trim on another room. New moulding room looks MUCH better.

                Product took a long time to get. Ordered 730 sq.ft. at the end of 2/11, it did not get to the store until mid June. Product looks great and was very easy to install, just ordered another 200 ft to do stairs and hallway. If you don't mind the wait, I highly recommend this flooring.

                Just laid this beautiful flooring in my bedroom. It was my first time doing anything like this and it was much easier than I expected, we even have a bedroom with some strange angles and managed to finish within a day. The flooring is very durable as my dog was running around in the room all day and a molding board with a nail scraped across the floor and about gave me a heart attack but it didn't even leave a mark.

                The pricing was a great deal and it was a fun project for me and my husband. I'd recommend this product to anyone!

                Be sure to have EVERYTHING ready and set up. The best advice i could give is to make sure you have several days to tackle each specific job. I did the floor pretty much on my own with a friends help in the cutting area (they had cooler cutting toys). It took less than a day to pull the old stuff out, on another day i laid the linning and padding, and another day to remove the baseboards and label them. I left the florring i purchased in the same ares for a couple of days (while i took everything else out) before i opened the packages. It was a doable job doing things slowly and one at a time.

                    I presently have a laminate wood floor. Do I have to rip it up or can I lay this over it with new underlayment?

                      It is never recommended to install a new floor over an existing floating floor.
                      You will need to take up your old one and start new.
                      Thanks for the question.

                      This is a higher gloss laminate but has alot of texture that breaks up the shine.

                  • Q:

                    I noticed that alot of your laminates come with an "AC" rating? What does the "AC" stand for, is it good to have an "AC" rating, what are the ratings (1-5)and is the higher the number the better the product?

                      A:

                      What is an AC rating?
                      The common term used to denote the durability level of laminate flooring is its, Abrasion Criteria or “AC” rating. AC ratings are an abbreviated representation of a laminate’s overlay film resistance to abrasion, impact, stains and cigarette burns. The ratings also indicate that the product has been tested for the effects of furniture legs, castors, and swelling along its edges. When a laminate flooring product has a rating, then it has passed all of the test criteria. Failing just one test will disqualify a product.
                      The AC rating levels are designated AC1 through AC5. Each is represented by international pictographs reflecting the product’s application and durability. The primary application is divided into two groups: residential and commercial. Each group is further divided into traffic intensity levels: moderate, general, or heavy. An AC1 rating which is the lowest should only be used in light-traffic area’s. At the other end of the scale is AC5 which is produced for the commercial market and for use in very high-traffic area’s. A laminate flooring rating of AC2 or AC3 is found on flooring tailored to the domestic and residential market. As can be seen, Laminate ratings are beneficial to customers for product comparison shopping. If you are tempted by some very cheap laminate flooring, be cautious, you may find that it hasn't received any type of AC rating indicating it failed to meet the minimum requirements. During product testing, if it fails on just one single test, then approval for that laminate flooring rating is denied. For residential use, a rating of AC3 is perfectly adequate. Typically the higher the laminate flooring rating, the higher the price may be. The test devised for abrasion resistance.

                  • Q:

                    I am planning on installing this product over existing (old) pine flooring. Do you recommend any type of underlayment? I specifically wish to run the laminate planks parallel to the current floor, rather then perpendicular. The pine was installed probably in the 1930's, and is fairly level and sound - I am concerned as to what problems might occur if a new plank seam winds up directly over an old pine seam in the boards. Do I need to run the new planks perpendicular to the old floor? Thanks.

                      Most likely not, you will need to put a transition between the two areas to finish the break line.

                      For general cleaning a swiffer type system works best. Not one that sprays the floor however. Lightly damp is fine but never soak or flood mop your floor. Do not use steam mops. Have a no shoes policy as much as possible. Use felt pads on all furniture. Sweep often.

                      Bellawood Cleaner works very well, find it here - http://www.lumberliquidators.com/catalog/section.jsp?categoryId=19

                      A:

                      Follow routine maintenance guidelines to clean your laminate flooring:
                      • Use a damp cloth to blot up spills as soon as they happen. Never allow liquids to stand on your floor.
                      • For tough spots, such as oil, paint, markers, lipstick, ink, or tar, use mineral spirits on a clean white cloth, then wipe the area with a damp cloth to remove any remaining residue.
                      • Sweep, dust, or vacuum the floor regularly with the hard floor attachment (not the beater bar) to prevent accumulation of dirt and grit that can scratch or dull the floor finish.
                      • Periodically clean the floor with cleaning products made specifically for laminate floor.
                      • Do not wash or wet mop the floor with soap, water, oil-soap detergent, or any other liquid cleaning material. This could cause swelling, warping, delaminating, and joint-line separation, and void the warranty.
                      • Do not use steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or strong ammoniated or chlorinated type cleaners.
                      • Do not use any type of buffing or polishing machine.
                      • For spots such as candle wax or chewing gum, harden the spot with ice and then gently scrape with a plastic scraper, such as a credit card. Be careful not to scratch the flooring surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
                      • A more frequent dust-mopping or vacuuming schedule may be required in very sandy areas such as a beach home.

                      Protect your laminate flooring to keep it looking like new:
                      • Entry mats will help collect the dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil, asphalt, or driveway sealer that might otherwise be tracked onto your floor.
                      • To prevent slippage of area rugs, use an approved vinyl rug underlayment.
                      • Use floor protectors and wide-load bearing leg bases/rollers to minimize t he chance of indentations and scratches from heavy objects. As a rule, the heavier the object, the wider the floor protector.
                      • Maintain a normal indoor relative humidity level between 35% and 55% throughout the year to minimize the natural expansion and contraction of the wood.
                      • Heating season (Dry under 20%): A humidifier is recommended to prevent excess shrinkage due to low humidity levels. Wood stove and electric heat tend to create very dry conditions.
                      • Non heating season (Wet over 55%): An air conditioner, dehumidifier or periodically turning on your heating system can maintain humidity during the summer months. Avoid excessive exposure to water during periods of inclement weather.
                      • Avoid excessive exposure to water during periods of inclement weather.
                      • Keep your pets nails trimmed to prevent them from scratching your floor.
                      • Never try to slide heavy objects across the floor.
                      • A protective mat should be used for furniture or chairs with castors.

                  • Q:

                    I did see that this product can be installed on stairs as long as you glu it. My question is, can it also be nailed to the subfloor on stairs. I was thinking of shooting a nail just into the back row for some stability. I would assume, if possible, you would want to pre drill a pilot hole to avoid splitting.

                    Thanks
