Bruce and armstrong laminate same product has poor design on the locking system it will squeak and crack when walked on due to the movement in the locking system. They recomend glue on the t&g in light comercial aplication so the know they have a problem, don't try and call customer service they will not cover noise they will blame everything under the sun but the product. Good luck.
Grand Illusions only looks good, your other senses will hate this product. It sounds like Rice Krispies when you walk on it first thing in the morning (snap. crackle and pop). And the laminate smells really musty.
One other note regarding Grand Illusions: There's a formaldehyde warning on the box. I'm not 100% certain if Grand Illusions is even safe to be in my home. Look what happened regarding tainted sheetrock not so long ago.
