I will say that we don't wear shoes in our house -- and one of the hotels in the area has bamboo (not sure it's Teragren) and the only negative they told me (they have had it for at least 7 years) was women's high stiletto heels ... they can leave slight dents. Not a problem for my family."..."Read more
I bought the exact same flooring from Home Depot when doing the first 2 rooms in my house. It was more expensive and the service was terrible.

Later I went back to the HD store to order 47 boxes to do the entire house and it was less to order online. I went home and decided to search for other options, and discovered Wayfair. The price was much better, the shipping was cheap and no sales tax. Wayfair didnt show enough inventory so I called and the service was EXCELLENT! They followed up with me 3 times to be sure all things were OK. The items arrived quickly and ib perfect condition. I am very pleased and highly recommend Wayfair."..."Read more

From a do-it-yourself

a Staple or Nail Down
Installation, and a Glue Down
Installation is the most
difficult of the three methods.
Click-Lock refers to a specific
style of Floating Floors. For
more information check out our
Flooring Installation Guide in
Lock and Fold: flooring is snapped together by hand, generally easier to install (DIY-friendly!)
Click: flooring is installed by lining up the connectors at the side of each board and tapping them together with a mallet and tapping block
Glue: flooring requires adhesive or glue between each seam during installation to ensure a strong seal between each board
Beveled Edges have a very distinctive, deep V-groove, where as Microbeveled or Eased Edges have a less distinctive, more shallow V-groove between planks. Kissed Edges are even subtler than Eased Edges, about 1/2 of the depth. Distressed Edges have some slight irregularity often matching the look of distressed planks. Square Edges create a smooth, uniform surface from plank to plank.
