We are looking to install some sort of wood on our concrete slab. It seems to be that solid wood is out since we're on a slab, so we are looking at Bruce's Natural Reflection, which is a thin solid that can be glued, but not nailed and also at Bruce's Coastal Woodlands, which is an engineered wood. Any comments about these and is there a better product that anyone would recommend? Thanks.

I would recommend

I would NEVER glue to slab. Bruce is the only one I know of that recommends it.
I would not go with a thin engineered unless it is the only one in the budget.
Float the wood over a moisture barrier, but still take a moisture test to be sure.

Bamboo

Bamboo is as stable as an engineered floor, and can be refinished a bunch of times. It is also gorgeous.
Glue it down with Bosticks best. Go with the 5/8" if you can, but they also have a 3/8" available.
See LumberLiquidators.com.

kesac, You're all over the bamboo. Have you just discovered it or selling the stuff?
I like it too, for the last few years I have been able to get horizontal blinds to match. Bamboo is a great, renewable resource. Some of it grows 3.5 ft. a day, not too many trees grow that fast.
