I found an 3/8" Indusparquet engineered that I liked and called a recommended installer for an estimate to install. He saw my sample and said it was junk like LL and that he wouldn't warrant his install on bad flooring like that. I'm confused because I've seen only good reviews of this hardwood. Any opinions on this brand? I also mentioned some Triangulo samples that I have coming and he said it was another off brand junk. Opinions? Thanks.

Triangulo is a great brand I have done their 3/4 solid many times but never their 3/8

Most brands have both good quality woods and lower quality. Many of the 3/8" engineered are not that good, regardless of brand. There are of course exceptions. Depends for example on how thick the top wear layer is.

BTW, if there is an opportunity to do solid hardwood, that is generally a better option as it can be sanded and refinished many times.

The wear layer on these is 3mm.

Solid isn't really an option since I'm on a slab.

Thanks.

My old Bruce Village plank floor is 3/8 3 ply and is twenty seven years old. Glued to vinyl which is glued to slab, old school.

Triangulo also offers a 1/2" flooring in their 5" planks with a 3mm wear layer. We have had quite extensive experience with this brand and have not had issues thus far. *Knock on wood*

This is turning into a big problem. Another installer came to give me an estimate, said the flooring was fine and that he'd send me an estimate the next day and I never heard from him again. So, I called another recommended guy who told me on the phone that floating would be easiest but that he wouldn't float a tongue and groove and to call him back if I found a lock and click that I liked.

Finding a color that I like in smooth finish, with about 3- 3 1/2 inch width, which has a decent wear layer and which isn't Chinese and is affordable is really hard to do. Now it has to be click and lock. This is impossible.

I went ahead and ordered Triangulo Maduro Chestnut 3 1/4 x 3/8. It's tongue and groove. I found a guy to install it. We'll see. Thanks.

Does that manufacturer say it is floatable? I'll float dang near anything but it has to be good with the man.

khq0660 I am trying to decide the very same thing you were last year. So how did your Triangulo turn out?

khq0660, since this old thread started I've done four Indusparquet jobs. One 3/8 inch which had a lot of shorts and the wood was only 4 ft long max, random plank. The others were 1/2 inch engineered that had 78" lengths, lots of long planks. Their milling is exceptional IMO.
I've direct glued and floated them. If your going exotic those are the people to go to.

I had the 3/8 put in quite awhile ago. I'm happy with it so far. I'll see how it holds up over time.

I got the Triangulo instead of the Indusparquet. Are they the same manufacturer?
