In the last year my wife and I purchased Armstrong Somerset Oak Flooring for our entire house - over 2000 square feet. We purchased oak because we were told it would be very durable. Nothing could be further from the truth (at least for this oak flooring). The least little thing that is dropped on the floor causes nicks and dents in the floor. I recently dropped my car keys on the floor and they put a noticeable dent in the floor. We brought this to the attention of the retailer whom we purchased the flooring from and he said the flooring was just like furniture and would dent and mark just like furniture. My only comment was furniture is not made for walking on.... Is this true - is this flooring so delicate that it dents and cracks with just about anything falling on it ?...
