BELLAWOOD 3/4" x 3-1/4" Select Brazilian Koa Prefinished Solid Hardwood Flooring

We Redefined Quality, Again. We set the quality standard by introducing a groundbreaking finish so tough it allowed us to offer one of the first 50 year warranties. Others followed. So, we raised the bar again. Now Bellawood is backed by a Certified 100 Year Transferable Warranty that covers you and generations to come.

One look and it's easy to see why Brazilian Koa is often called Tigerwood. Its distinctive orange coloring and brown/black striping make it one of the most unique and exotic species available on the market today. And its durability is simply outstanding, resulting in a "not-so-everyday" floor that will stand up year after year to life's everyday demands.
This product is proudly finished in the USA.

We caught up with real Lumber Liquidators' customers who volunteered to discuss their floor shopping, buying and installation experiences. In no way did these customers receive compensation for their kind words. (They're speaking straight from the heart.)

Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/4" x 3-1/4" Brazilian Koa:

Shopped around extensively for flooring trying to find a match for the cabinet/counter top color scheme for a new kitchen/open family room. The coloring and grain variation of this floor fit perfectly. Unfortunately, the finish of the floor is not very durable at all. I don't see the scratching issues that others with pets have reported. It is just 3 of us living here, no pets, and 90% of the foot traffic is socks/slippers and still the floor continues to dent, nick, and gouge on a daily basis. I can't figure out how that is possible unless it is extremely soft underneath the finish coat. It is a beautiful looking floor but I'm afraid it's just not going to last. If you have a very low-traffic room, you could try it for a nice look but overall, I'm disappointed in the product and would not have used it if I had any idea it would be failing this quickly.

Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/4" x 3-1/4" Brazilian Koa:

We installed the Bellawood Brazilian Koa 3/4"x3 1/4" in our living room and kitchen. It was very easy for my boyfriend and his cousin to install over the course of a weekend. The other great thing is that we must have over estimated how much flooring we would need and have 3 full boxes left over! There were very few damaged or dinged pieces in the boxes, any that did exist, we were able to install so that the dings were hid underneath cabinetry or cut off entirely. We're probably going to use the excess to refinish our stairs! :)

We absolutely love the look of this floor! Every time I come home I am in awe of how gorgeous the floors look in our new home. The variety in the boards between the boxes is incredible. We all have our favorite pieces that have amazing grain and color.

My only complaint so far is that the floors do scratch and dent easily. Our 30 lb dog has already left some marks in the floor (her nails are kept trim!). Not a big deal, as we know scratches are bound to happen. It's not hurting the finish, just the surface.

Overall, we're very happy with this product and can't wait to have it for years to come.

Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/4" x 3-1/4" Brazilian Koa:

Had an experienced friend install this flooring in our living and dining room to replace water-damaged oak in one room and pine flooring in another. Surface seems to scratch and dent somewhat easily. We were hoping that this would be super durable with the Bellawood warranty and the fairly high janka rating. The floor looks absolutely beautiful and we are looking forward to seeing the changes as it darkens over the coming months. Would not whole-heartedly recommend to a friend due to the scratches we've already seen.

      Have only had the floor for 45 minutes, so can't speak to durability yet. But I will say that my professional installer did our kitchen and dining room in half a day with very little waste. We had bought 10% more than our square footage for waste, and we still have 10% left at the end. It's absolutely stunning.

      Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/4" x 3-1/4" Brazilian Koa:

      We had a total kitchen remodel in Dec. 2012. I wanted to have the flooring for a year before reviewing. This goes all throughout the kitchen, dining room and hallway downstairs. We chose this wood for the beautiful grain, warmth and Bellawood name. We had purchased this type of Bellawood in the past for our living room. We installed it ourselves and found it fairly easy to do so. This time, it was installed by our contractor. The wood is gorgeous and high quality. We love how it has darkened to a warm, reddish, honey tone. It is very easy to clean. Our biggest complaint is that our dogs' nails have scratched and dented the floor in areas they (and we) frequent. This was our fault however. We should have gone with a harder wood. All in all, we still love this flooring. We are constantly getting complements...even with the dings and scratches. I recommend an area rug or runners in the heavily trafficked areas especially if you have pets or kids. Remember, if you put a rug down or object that covers the floor, the floor wont darken it the area is lays on. Keep that in mind for redecorating or re-sale. It will darken in those areas over time once the carpet or object is removed. Thank you so much to LL.

            The most beautiful wood I've ever seen. Because of some tricky angles, I had to have it professionally installed but the only thing to watch for is using an 18 gauge nailer rather than the more standard 15-16 gauge guns - they will turn the very hard koa tongue to toothpicks.

            • Q:

              Is this material FSC certified? Where is it harvested from?
              Asked on 3/16/2014 by Shellie from United States

              1 answer

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                No. While FSC Certification is gaining in popularity, it is only one of many initiatives designed to promote ethical forest management/conservation. True FSC Certification requires supervision or custodial of product from seed to manufacture which some of our vendors participate in. LL respects and works along with the existing policies of other Sovereign governments. Just as there are many acceptable strategies to cure hunger, for customers to focus on just one management entity is to imply arrogance, overlooking the "caretaker" management responsibilities already implemented by countries of origin.

                Lumber Liquidators is committed to responsible business practices as a central operating philosophy of our company. To that end, our lumber sourcing complies with U.S. laws and regulations including the Lacey Act, which prohibits the illegal trade of wildlife, fish, and plants, including lumber.

                In addition, we work directly with a select group of vendors and mills with whom we have cultivated long-standing relationships to ensure the legal and environmentally-responsible sourcing and production of our products. Our suppliers agree to comply with our Supplier Code of Conduct with Respect to Environmental and Social Responsibility which requires, among other things, that their operations and the products they supply to us comply with all national and other applicable laws and regulations for the countries in which they operate.

                We visit our suppliers’ mills and forests and assess their adherence to our code of conduct and its protocols concerning environmental, labor and health and safety matters. In the past, we have stopped using certain suppliers because we were not satisfied with the credibility of their responses to detailed questions about compliance issues and we regularly decline to pursue business with potential new suppliers that cannot provide evidence of compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

                All of our Brazilian suppliers are members of the government-sanctioned Sisflora system which tracks harvesting plans and timber sources for the timber industry in Brazil.

              how resistant to moisture and cupping?/

              Compared to maple or walnut
              Asked on 12/4/2013 by dave

              1 answer

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                Cupping occurs when there is an extreme local moisture condition and a moisture imbalance within each board. That is...the bottom of the board absorbs excessive moisture and swells width wise, while the face of the board, with less moisture content, holds tight, providing counter width wise-dimensional movement. The weakest point for any movement is at the board's edges. Once the board's edges start to bend upward, cupping becomes quite visible. This extra stress and stretching of the board's finish can cause it to become compromised. The results may include objectionable finish problems such as cracking, peeling, flaking, or chipping. In addition, the structural body of the boards can suffer stress fracture splits on the ends or face checking. This is not due to any deficiencies in the wood product as the boards are manufactured dry. Thank you for your inquiry

              1 answer

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                Engineered wood and floating floors (floors not attached to the subfloor) are most recommended for radiant heat. However, if you should choose to use solid wood for this application select species with the best stability ratings. Be aware that even species with better dimensional stability characteristics cannot predictably be guaranteed to perform well over radiant heat. Therefore, solid wood applications over radiant in-floor heat is not recommended nor warrantied. Because of the wide array of in-floor heating systems on the market each with its own features and limitations please consult with your radiant flooring provider for installation methods and application advice.

                This material is our most scratch resistant flooring based on the Bellawood name, there are 8 layers of finish on the flooring which contain aluminum oxide throughout. If you using office chairs I would suggest the wheels are seamless plastic as the seams are normally what causes the the dents and scratches in flooring. In speaking of color change, that is a normally occurring process in all woods, and it will happen with or without sunlight, it is call Patina. The Patina process will be most visible in the first 6 months after installation and then from 6 months to 12 months the process will slow down and stop at about 1 year after installation. The 5" planks would look very nice in a room that size! If you have additional question you can certainly give me a call 800-476-0007

                A:

                Great questions; I would recommend our Silicone Vapor Shield SKU #10021412 if your substrate is wood. If it is concrete I would use our 6mil poly moisture barrier and our Elastilon underlayment.
                The surface temperature of the subfloor must never exceed 85°F in any location.
                You can find complete installation instructions on the product page by clicking on the specs tab and then clicking on - Installation Guide.pdf

                What you should know about Elastilon Strong
                An Elastilon-backed wood floor is much faster to install than traditional nail or glue-down methods.
                Elastilon Strong can be installed on new concrete floors, handling up to 3.9% moisture content. A vapour barrier of at least 6 mil PE should be used below grade and on newly poured concrete above grade where the moisture content is above 3.9%.
                Laid down with a 5/8” (15 mm) expansion gap, Elastilon Strong creates a dynamic, floating floor that expands or contracts naturally with the hardwood.
                Elastilon Strong has no odor and is free of volatile materials.
                Elastilon Strong gives cushioned comfort.
                1/8” (3 mm) thick Elastilon Strong has ratings of IIC 62 and STC 54.
                Thermal resistance: R _ 0,15 (m K) / W
                Elastilon Strong carries a 70-year limited warranty. Thank you for your question
