How have the acacia floors held up and have you had any problems with them? - We are considering installing but I can't find much information on the wood and long-term durability.

This is an engineered product and the species becomes less relevant in that case. I believe the primary consideration is how the manufacturer coats, protects, and finishes the wood. This floor was an Ernest Hemingway brand product in the Ketchum collection called Wild Nutmeg.

Custom Home Planning Center
Compare hardness of surface by Oak + or _ the basic standard. ( unless your looking for a rustic finish the harder the better) When using an engineered flooring make sure solid stair trim / and or solid boards are available. If using darker colors consider un finished and finish with oil for best results to avoid fogging of polyurethane finishes. Floating, my preference for diy install is best done with full 3/4 engineered flooring to avoid flexing common to thinner materials.
