Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        same price as carpeting. easy to lay down. dings are covered up easily enough with some dark stain. and its hand-scraped anyhow so it just looks like it came that way.

        not great

        By Gail

        from Palmdale

        Pros

        • Color is nice

        Cons

        • Not A Tight Fit Gaps

        Best Uses

          Planks do not fit together tightly. There are gaps that had to be filled with putty. The putty in some of the filled-in areas has sunk, leaving a clear view of the sub-floor. Also edges of planks show up as a light color, so it looks almost like grout lines. Knot holes are rough, and not stained properly. Have to buy putty and stain to fix myself. If I called installers it would take all day to touch up.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Installers were hard working and polite, were here for 15 hours. I have no fault with them. The problems were with the product, and the fact that they were told it was a glued down wood instead of a nailed down wood. Next time I would buy a simple click and lock floor.

          Modern and interesting

          By Mandy

          from New Jersey

          We put this floor in the kitchen, living, foyer, and dining rooms in our house. The handscraped feature and dark color make this floor unique and modern. It really sets off our lighter-colored area rugs. While it doesn't scratch or dent too easily, it does require cleaning more often than a light-colored floor because every crumb that hits the floor is obvious against the dark background.

          The quality control needs improvement - in 27 boxes we had problems with the stain not extending all the way to edge on one board, one board's groove and tongue were cut on the opposite sides making it unusable, and four or more boards were slightly narrower than the others, which left gaps once installed. When we knew to look for these defective boards while installing, we just set them aside and the floor went down beautifully without many issues.

          • Office

          We have been waiting a long time to replace our carpet and this wood makes our home feel modern and clean. The different types of light bounce off the floors amazingly. We went with a white trim and it compliments them beautifully. So happy...

            What is the best process for cleaning birch wood floors? (oil-based, water-based, dusting unless absolutely necessary to deep clean?)
            Asked on 10/21/2012 by Cindy from Texas

            1 answer

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              For general cleaning a swiffer type system works best. Not one that sprays the floor however. Lightly damp is fine but never soak or flood mop your floor. Do not use steam mops. Have a no shoes policy as much as possible. Use felt pads on all furniture. Sweep often.

              Bellawood Cleaner works very well, find it here - http://www.lumberliquidators.com/catalog/section.jsp?categoryId=19

              In addition, Bona Kemi makes good and safe hardwood flooring cleaner.

              A:

              This flooring has it's good points for your application one of which is a very durable finish, however because it's handscraped, future refinishing would be difficult, In addition the uneven surface would be a problem with office chairs (soft urethane chair casters are recommended for any hardwood flooring). A Bellawood floor, light to medium in color and harder than red oak can work very well. Laminate flooring is good if you can get AC 4 but they can never be refinished if damaged.

          • Q:

            I'm planning to use the nail-down approach to install the hardwood floor on the second floor of my house. However, the moisture level of the plywood subfloor is 11% while the hardwood is 6%. Is the difference of 5% too high for the installation? It seems so according to the Warranty Statement. If so, will a moisture barrier, such as the 6mil poly sheeting help?

            1 answer

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              Yes it is too high, for this wider board it needs to be within 2% difference.
              Wood subfloors: Determine if conditions are dry before installing. Wood subfloor moisture reading must not exceed 12%; the ideal moisture content within new wood flooring is 6%-9%. The differential balance between new boards and subfloor must not exceed 2% for board widths over 2 1/4”. If moisture readings are too high, postpone the installation, find the moisture source and correct. Raise heat and increase ventilation, holding off installation until proper conditions are met.
              Plastic is never recommended for installation over wood subfloors. 15 lb roofing felt is recommended over wood subflooring.

            What is the best way to install wood flooring over a concrete floor with radient heating?
            Asked on 4/14/2011 by John from Hudson, WI

            1 answer

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              When looking for solid flooring over radiant heat installations it's important to look for wood with a high stability rating or engineered flooring. Radiant heated flooring can expand and contract more than usual. This floor is Birch which is a poor performer because of a low stability rating.

              A:

              Please note this is ONLY a helpful recommendation that is not guaranteed to work (but who worth a try!!!)

              1.) Apply the Ultimate Adhesive Remover or mineral spirits on the spotted area, let stand for 10 minutes or so.
              2.) Take a Magic Eraser ( This is a foam pad found in the cleaning section in most grocery stores). Use the foam side. Some have a scouring pad on 1-side. Buff the area with the Magic Eraser.
              3.) Get a clean white cotton cloth and/or micro-fiber cloth, very lightly dampened with water, wipe off the residue you created.
              Always do a test first in an inconspicuous area.

            How would you install this flooring on concrete.
            Asked on 1/17/2011 by Benjamin from Houston

            1 answer

            • Staff Reviewer

              A:

              There are 3 ways to install this product over concrete. One is to glue it down over the slab. The second is to install a floating plywood subfloor system. The third is to use our Elastilon underlayment.
              Floating plywood subfloor system:
              Concrete should be clean and level up to 1/8” over 6’. Apply a 6mil mil poly sheeting over the concrete overlapping the seams 6 inches and tape with duct tape. Install a layer of 1/2” plywood over the poly sheeting. Next install a second layer of 1/2” plywood at a 45 degree angle to the first layer. Screw the top layer of plywood to the bottom layer. Be sure not to penetrate the poly sheeting with the screws. Allow for a ½” expansion space between the plywood and any walls and 1/8” gap between square edge plywood panels. Last install 15lb black roofing paper over the plywood and install the flooring over the roofing paper.

              Elastilon underlayment:
              Elastilon is a 1/8” thick underlayment with a self adhesive system. To use this product over concrete you will have to apply a 6 mil poly sheeting over the concrete first, overlapping the seam 6” and tape with duct tape. Roll out the Elastilon perpendicular to the direction of your floor installation. Butt the seams of the Elastion together (do not overlap). Next begin your installation of the flooring following Elastilons’ installation instructions.

            Can this be nailed or can it just float? THis is going on a second story and I planed on putting down 1/4 inch luan over the existing floor to give me a smoother surface.

              A:

              The Virginia Mill Works Cocoa Birch can only be installed as a nail down or glue down application. To float this product you would need to use the Elastilon underlayment. It is not recommended to nail over Luan board, instead use a 1/4" plywood or just level the orginial plywood or OSB subfloor. The floor should not be nailed into particle board.
