Anyone have experience with this flooring? Good/Bad?
Looking at Mannington Adura Max.
Thanks for any help.

2-1/2 years ago we chose this hickory Adura max.
We ripped powder post infected hardwood & original fir flooring.
Put down a double layer of 3/4 CDX subfloor on top of the 24" spaced logs.
So far we are very happy with the floor.
It went togeather a little tricky as the ends snap as well as the sides of the planks.
It is a floating floor, so needs to be loose under your baseboards.
Has it's own padding, so lay directly on the sub floor.
It has held up well, (no toe nail scratch from kids German Shepherds) & can be washed unlike the pergo.

I have used them in my rentals and the tenants have not found a way to destroy them yet. The newer kind now interlocks like a laminate floor instead of the glue types. I have found when using the older style glue types that using a heat gun to warm the glue edges makes them go together stronger eliminating that edge creep referred to above.
