Thank you for your quick response.My primary concern is not about installation, I can pay some one to install or to help me install. I am concerned about durability. It is pre-fabed and that sometimes means a drop in quality. Are there reasons I should not use this stuff? It is about 80% $ of traditional hard wood. It would also mean that I wouldn't have the glue and poly-urethane fumes in the house. The only drawback I know of is that there is a small bevel between the boards that can make sweeping more difficult. Is there anything else?
