Bruce Hardwood Flooring (Maple, Antique)

Posted by penaddict (My Page) on

I know a lot of people have negative opinions on Bruce but want to find out why and if this applies to all of its lines.
We were considering putting down the Bruce Liberty Plains 4" Planks in Maple Antique for our master bedroom and closet (just under 300 sq ft total).
We got a good price at our local flooring store (not big box).
The sample looks nice in the bedroom but haven't bought it yet.
Any thoughts or concerns or positive or negative ideas/suggestions? We are also considering installing it ourselves (though never have done it before but have read a lot and watched a lot of videos on it).

I have installed a couple of Bruce floors lately(engineered gluedown), planning for the worst I have always seen in the past and after it was all said and done, they were actually nice floors to work with.

Thanks Floorguy! Expect the worst, hope for the best! Ordered them today. :) This will be our first hardwood flooring project we've done ourselves (we have a lot more experience with tile). I've watched videos and read books, so hope we will be prepared.
