I am a designer and buy and install garrison flooring every month for the past 6 years. Only one problem job and garrison paid to rip out, new material, and install costs. Very happy with product and service

I have the Garrison II Maple Wheat flooring throughout my home and I've had no problems with it. It looks just as good 3 years later. It cleans up well and has no signs of wear. Finish still looks great.

What brand of engineered flooring is the best? We want a higher end quality, natural wood, not some of these that feel plastic. Please advise if you know about the different brands.

We are thinking of putting in this exact floor. I have head that it may not be strong enough, Do you have children or pets?

My contractor wants to use Garrison. Not sure since there are some negative posts. Also I have been interested in Virginia Vintage (Anderson).
I have read that the Chinese floors (Garrison) have a lot better quality control than in the past.??? Not sure what to do.

I own a large outlet that sells $110K-$132K monthly in carpet wood and laminate. We have sold over 32,000 sf of Garrison Wood flooring and never had a claim. The quality control of the Chinese products is every bit as good as the domestic products. US/Canadian companies actually run the mills in China. Don't be scared of the floor.

I had my whole house done in Garrison II Walnut Antique about 1 year ago. It is one of the most stunning floors I have ever seen anywhere. I highly recommend this product.

Linda, for affordable prices you should just search online for "Garrison II Maple Wheat".
Judy works for the company she mentioned.
Internet is a truly competitive market place. You are pretty much guaranteed to find what you are looking for at the best price.
There are 225,000 results from google for that term, I am sure you will find what you need.

I sell just about every flooring brand there is or at least have seen and held samples at tradeshows. 2 tradeshows a year for 6 years + rep's in my face all the time. I get to see a lot of hardwood flooring.

The chinese products are good but no where near the quality of milling we can guarantee in the USA. Garrison is good flooring with good milling and finish, but all manufacturers have quality issues. There is machine and human error from the small crappy chinese bamboo companies to large U.S. mills to fine European brands. Anyone can land on a bad batch, it happens. How a company deals with it is the question. Garrison has been pretty good to me and my customers, replacing material in one case that was probably defective. It did take a while though.

A lot of the problems manufacturers tell me about with chinese made flooring is that they have problems with communication, so something lands in the US, and it was not exactly what was ordered. Then they have to fire sale it.

If you need more help finding the right hardwood floor for you, I provide this service because I realize what a daunting task it is looking at all the brands and lines in a store or online.

Not only are Garrison products simply terrible, their staff is made up of total uncaring jerks. Especially a prick is some guy named John Hunt. Avoid this company at all cost as there are so many better floors out there.

We installed the Garrison II Walnut Natural Smooth. THIS IS TERRIBLY SOFT! It dents like crazy and we baby it... no shoes on in our house. Our 3 year old drops a toy and there's a dent. It's absolutely beautiful, but it scratches and dents way too easily for an engineered wood floor. I would stay away from American Walnut period. If you like the look,
the most durable choice is Brazilian walnut. I may be filing a claim with Garrison... I just can't believe we spent so much time and money and we have to tip toe around it.... It makes me very sad.

I am currently having an additional bedroom done with the Garrison II in the Brazilian Cherry. I had two of the other five bedrooms done in this same flooring and will have to stay with the same. Unfortunately, the first day it was laid, the dog went in and put an extensive scratch in it. Yes, I agree with the other comments that for a laminated floor it is very soft, and I was disappointed with the durability factor. I would have thought for the price that it would be far more durable. The look is outstanding, but every piece of furniture has felt pads on them! THE DOG IS NOT ALLOWED IN THESE ROOMS!

I am having nothing but problems with my garrison floors. I have reason to believe the aluminum oxide is defective. The stain is known to be defective. The wood species is supposed to be very hard but it is getting damaged with very little weight on it. The company has bullied me and refuses to take responsibility - even though they have admitted to the stain problem. Stay away from this company!

I have had nothing but problems with this floor since the day it was intalled. Extremely soft and scratches so easily. We baby this floor and nothing helps with the scratching. Working with this company is a joke they claim they have a warranty but dont want to do anything to resolve concerns. They wont even send a rep out to look at it. We spent way too much to have a floor look this bad.
