Handscraped appearance and texture... Just like Hardwood flooring!


Kensington Manor Collection by Dream Home - 12mm Cape Doctor Laminate Flooring - 30 Year Warranty

Kensington Manor is a premium 12mm + 3mm pre-glued underlayment laminate product line. What is unique is that most of the line has a handscraped finish appearance. This is not simply in the look, but also in the actual texture!
The combination of these 2 characteristics gives them a beautiful rustic feel!
Also, the V-groove and pre-glued 3mm underlayment will make your installation process quick and easy.

Quick Installation Tips:
- Store flooring flat for 48 hours in its original packaging at room temperature.
- Must be installed over a clean, stable, flat, smooth, and dry surface.
- Moisture barrier is required for installations over concrete.
- Make sure the panels are mixed sufficiently when you install them so that you do not end up with too many identical, light or dark panels next to each other.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO USE ADDITIONAL PADDING:
Laminates having pre-attached padding can be installed over an underlayment. When doing so, Lumber Liquidators recommends the use of our Bellawood Premium underlayment or ECO Silent Sound underlayment. These quality underlayments will best support the joints while ensuring superior thermal sound reduction qualities and are highly recommended for use with condominium associations, project planners and building specifiers.

Kensington Manor Flooring Advantages:
- No glue and no nails needed
- Easy Click Installation
- Moisture resistant board
- Thickness: 12mm + 3mm (1/8") pre-glued underlayment
- AC Rating: 3  
- 30 Year Warranty

    Ends of boards chipping

    By Eric

    from Maryland Line Md.

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Floor Looks Nice

    Cons

    • Some Boards Are Chipping

    Best Uses

      Watching the installation the boards seemed to fit very tight. Now I am noticing some chips on the end of the boards. It a black color under that. Not very happy. I am worried that more chipping may occur later.

      Beautiful flooring, But

      By Mark the traveler

      Pros

        Cons

          Best Uses

            This is a great looking flooring. Very solid and heavy feeling for a 12mm flooring.
            The snap lock seems a bit hard to install. Although the horizontal snap is a breeze the vertical it VERY hard to snap. I have to use a mallet to force it together.

            from Lincoln CA

            Put this throughout the whole house except for bathrooms and laundry room. So clean and it is not too light and not too dark. Has tan/brown/gray tones. The handscraped finish is great. Went together well.

                        Don't waste your money or time on the spacers and plastic installer thing that they say will help you with installation. That was a total wast of $16.

                          Best Uses

                            Now that I have the floor down it looks great, but putting it in was a nightmare. The amount of force needed to assemble this flooring tends to damage it and after a while I started laying it down much differently in order to avoid using the hammer as much as possible. While it is good that the fit is tight enough that the floor won't move it is not by design, which is a particularly bad one, it is caused by very crude cutting of the tongue and grooves. I found myself constantly stopping to remove tidbits off of particular corners (what I'd call incomplete cuts and burrs) or clearing out chips left behind by manufacturing. After the 3 days it took to lay down this product in a 9' by 11' room I can't say as I will use this brand again.

                                  We put this in our whole house except the bathrooms it is stunning once you get a few pieces linked it is kind of hard to tell with the one panel up in the store. Each box had about one plank that was defective (chipped, groove was broken, or some other scratch) but we were able to cut most of these and use them at ends of rows so not a complete waste. I guess that is why they recommend so much more square footage than you ask for. We have gotten tons of compliments! It definitely has a driftwood Beachy vibe but yet modern and warm at the same time.

                                        We can only recommend our Bellawood Floor Cleaner, or cleaners that are safe for water based urethane finishes. Never use any polish, wax, oil soaps or cleaners that add shine to the floor. In addition, we do not recommend using steamers or wet-jet cleaning systems for hardwood because spraying can collect moisture in between board edges. The use of these products is at your own risk.

                                        What is an AC rating?
                                        The common term used to denote the durability level of laminate flooring is its, Abrasion Criteria or “AC” rating. AC ratings are an abbreviated representation of a laminate’s overlay film resistance to abrasion, impact, stains and cigarette burns. The ratings also indicate that the product has been tested for the effects of furniture legs, castors, and swelling along its edges. When a laminate flooring product has a rating, then it has passed all of the test criteria. Failing just one test will disqualify a product.
                                        The AC rating levels are designated AC1 through AC5. Each is represented by international pictographs reflecting the product’s application and durability. The primary application is divided into two groups: residential and commercial. Each group is further divided into traffic intensity levels: moderate, general, or heavy. An AC1 rating which is the lowest should only be used in light-traffic area’s. At the other end of the scale is AC5 which is produced for the commercial market and for use in very high-traffic area’s. A laminate flooring rating of AC2 or AC3 is found on flooring tailored to the domestic and residential market. As can be seen, Laminate ratings are beneficial to customers for product comparison shopping. If you are tempted by some very cheap laminate flooring, be cautious, you may find that it hasn't received any type of AC rating indicating it failed to meet the minimum requirements. During product testing, if it fails on just one single test, then approval for that laminate flooring rating is denied. For residential use, a rating of AC3 is perfectly adequate
