Rona's had the best price on bamboo flooring, which in retrospect likely shouldn't have been our main buying factor.
After numerous visits to the store (sorry that person is on lunch, or sorry the flooring person isn't working today) we finally landed at the store on the same day that someone could help us make the purchase.
Thinking that Bamboo was Bamboo, the per sq ft price was going to save us hundreds of dollars.
It was my second experience laying hardwood - fairly easy with a good chop saw and a nail gun and compressor.
The problem with the flooring became apparent days later, when our dog was ripping deep scratches in floor; then the vacuum, the kids playing, etc. I'm not talking about roughhousing, just regular activities. Activities that didn't leave scratches in our existing soft pine floors.
So bamboo isn't bamboo, and seems like Rona has decided that stocking cheap flooring is good business - repeat business? forget it - will never shop there again.
