this is funny to me.......I'm a hardwood installer for 40yrs come July
If I'm reading this right you ordered a different floor.
YOU picked up the floor and no one looked at the floor to see if it was the right one.
You loaded and unloaded 62 ctns and never checked the flooring and never opened a box to see how it would look with your finishes.
and Home Depot is going to give you a credit.
As an installer I always ask if this is the right floor before I install, but in your case seeing the flooring was there I would have
assumed somebody already checked it.
Good for you they're giving you a credit, its their mistake no one checked the numbers on the box.
I think the floor looks great, as does the theater, another good job Bud
