I looked at most of the engineered floors and selected Wilsonart (we used a tile slate patter and are very happy with it). Installation pointers? - follow the directions carefully. One thing I found by experience: be ABSOLUTELY sure that you are working with a clean area; the slightest piece of sawdust or other foreign matter in a groove will cause the pieces not to join properly. Any specific questions I'll be happy to try to answer. Good luck.
