I bought open faced engineered oak flooring from Nadurra and installed it myself. The wood has a natural worn patina which I was attracted to but the purchased wood was far more weathered and full of nail holes than their sample in the showroom. To make matters worse the veneer on the engineered flooring varied between 3-4mm creating noticeable grooves once installed.
After a few years of installation I started seeing tiny holes in the flooring and realized it was infested with wood boring beetles which are impossible to remove.
