Cabin grade vs 1st quality Bruce Lock N Fold


I am considering using Bruce Lock N Fold flooring in a "redo" of my guest bedroom. I need some recomendations/opinions regarding the cheaper Cabin grades vs 1st quality of no glue floating click style flooring. Has anyone used Bruce's lock n fold cabin grade? Just want to avoid "kicking myself" for trying to save a few bucks!! Thanks

Check out Bruces site. My experience is that cabin grade has a more rustic appearance, more discoloration, less uniformity, larger knots and more of them. Personally I like it, looks good with the furniture I have. I have noticed with 3/4 solids there are a few more culls. Not sure about that with engineered woods.

Cabin grade vs 1st quality Bruce Lock N Fold


I recently helped my son lay cabin grade lock and fold from Hurst Hardwoods in his new home
We used Timberland Lock and Fold Butterscotch and about 10% of the boards had some flaw, mostly knots or holes. Most of these boards could be used to start or end a row buy cutting off the damaged area.
I bought 10% overage but 5% would have been fine. The flooring is exactly the same as the one you buy at Lowes - Bruce Lock and Fold.

Bruce Lock n' Fold as well as Armstrong's products that use the same system have been the subject of many complaints for us. I've heard no end of complaints about the product popping and clicking, not to mention to joints getting loose over time. I don't think it's a very well designed system myself.
