It looks pretty good, but in retrospect, if it weren't for my wife's
allergies, I probably would have saved for another year and done real
hardwood. The subfloor was impossibly unlevel, and I was cursing the
contractor who just slapped carpet over it and hoped nobody would notice.
I went through about 5 25lb bags of leveling compound, and in some places,
there were actual humps that I would have had to grind down to floor level
if I were to truly level this thing. I have a few "bad" spots that crackle
a bit when you walk over them. They don't flex much, just a tiny bit, but
apparently enough to make a noise. In looking at the design, I notice that
even though there is a built in "pad" attached to each floor piece, it
doesn't go edge to edge. Wouldn't that leave an unsupported line on every
seam? I'm not happy I went this way, and wouldn't do it again unless the
floor was dead straight. What seemed like it would be a 2 day job took two
weeks. We'll see how long it lasts.
