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


Kensington Manor by Dream Home - 12mm Glacier Peak Poplar 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 also be installed over an underlayment. When doing so, Lumber Liquidators recommends the use of Bellawood Platinum, Bellawood Premium, Quiet Walk or the Eco Silent Sound underlayment. These quality underlayments offer best joint/seam support while ensuring superior thermal sound reduction qualities, these properties 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

Perfect for a dark room

By R & R

from Henniker, NH

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • 3 Different Lengths
  • Easy To Install
  • Very little waste

Cons

  • Few Damaged Boards

Best Uses

  • Best For A Dark Room
  • Brightens Up Any Room

We recently finished our garage attic, and we needed a light-colored floor. This one was perfect, and we absolutely love it. The boards came in 3 different lenghts. At first I was a little disappointed, but I soon realized what a good idea this is: you have very little waste. We bought the exact square footage for the room and ended up with 1/2 a box left over. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because there were a few damaged (chipped) boards, but we ended up using most of them by cutting out the damaged parts. If they still have it when we are ready to do our living room, we want to use the same product again.

Service and delivery comments:

We picked up the product ourselves. The person who helped us was very friendly, gave us some information on the trim, but did not try to talk us into buying more than we needed. We will definitely go back to get our next laminate flooring. Very positive experience.

        This flooring was for our bedroom, it has brightened it up so much and looks great with the darker color furniture. We found it to be a little difficult to lay, however, I really do love the flooring.

        Good floor

          • Some Pieces Not Perfect

          Best Uses

          • Great Look And Feel For

          Really nice looking floor and easy to install once you get the hang of it. Install takes touch not muscle. Ensure seems in board are in different local each row makes floor hold better especially early in project.

          Only thing I am unsure of is some pieces did not have smooth edges and I am afraid they will be spots that chip easily. New install and have not had this problem yet.

          Floor looks good and has had many compliments alreasdy.

          45 Degree

          By Patrick DIY

          from Green Bay, WI

          Verified Reviewer

          • Texture

          Best Uses

            This was installed in a smaller bedroom. The room was dark and needed a lighter floor which this product provided. The subfloor was level and having pre-attached pad, the floor was installed directly on the subfloor.

            This was my first floor installation. I researched for a couple of weeks on the methods, tricks, and watch outs. Not being one to do anything easy, I decided that laying the floor at 45 degrees would look great. And it does! However, it took 2 to 3 times longer at 45 and you need to work from both edges starting at the middle of the room out. Do some research if you will be flooring a closet, too.

            If you will be installing this flooring yourself, get the installation kit!!! You cannot do this without it. Also, use the wall spacers. As you use the tapping block and pull bat, the entire floor moves. It WILL get out of square quickly without the spacers. A 12" compound miter saw made quck work of the cuts. I can't imagine using a hand saw.

            The look and feel of this flooring is superb. The graining doesn't appear repeated like some styles. The foot-feel is warm which is a nice suprise. The seams are tight which makes cleaning easy. After 1 year, there are no signs of wear or dents even with kids in and out of the room constantly. Because there are 3 different lenghts of boards in each box, I didn't have issues using a long board for a small piece. I ended up with just under 3% scrap and was able to return 1 unopened carton. If all boards were the same length, I would have had much more scrap.

            You need to be carefull handling the boards. The edges of the laminate are somewhat brittle and will chip if bumped. I have 2 small chips along the seam that do show since the core is much darker than the face. These chips are small and really, no one but me knows they are there. The locking of the boards is tricky. Once flat, they stay together really well. But, as you install a long row, lifting the last board even a little will release the lock. 2 people and a lot of tapping are needed for long rows. Once you get going and learn the tricks, it gets easier and faster.

            Overall, I had a lot of fun installing this flooring with the help of my 9 year old son. The results are very good and I would do it again. There is a lot of value with this product and I didn't think a laminate would look this good. And now my son believes I can do anything!

            EXACTLY what we needed to bring our tropical theme together in our Den! Not a great product for the inexperienced installer though. Due to type of tongue and grove it can be very difficult to click, and stay together without knowing some tricks.

            • Tough

            Cons

            • Delivery Time
            • Price fluctuates

            Best Uses

              We've got two dogs that love to chase each other around the house and when we brought that up to the in-store rep, he immediately recommended going with a 12mm laminate like this one. We're not entire done laying it yet but we can already tell that this stuff is durable. A few dropped tools on it here, sliding our refridgerator on/off of it multiple times and of course the dogs running around on it and there's not a single mark to be seen.

              What I like most about this aside from the durability and looks is that it's hand scratched to give it a much more pleasing texture. This flooring feels great to walk aroud on barefoot and helps brighten up the room!

              Service and delivery comments:

              We were quoted 10-14 days for delivery and it ended up being closer to 21 days. I was disappointed because nobody from Lumber Liquidators contacted us to give us updates or let us know it would be late.

              Once it did arrive at our local store the store employees were VERY helpful in getting it loaded and making sure to answer any questions I had about installation.

              • Flooring

              I took the label from a box left over from a previous installation, thinking that the new flooring could be integrated with the old in one continuous flow. I was very disappointed when the two were different sizes and a T-mould had to be placed between the two, disrupting the aesthetic flow.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Prompt and in good condition.

              • Hard to click together

              Best Uses

                I am on the fence with this product. The price was great but 2 of the boxes we opened had multiple chips in the laminate before we even started, it was hard to click together and more of the boards chipped as we were installing it. It looks great now that it is in, but I probably wasted a full 2 boxes due to chipped boards. I recommend hiring someone to install it.

                        A:

                        Layout several pieces and dry/visualize the layout.

                        Stagger new end-joints from previously installed rows a minimum of 8” to 12” to avoid seam line-up. In any row, if your last piece is less than 12”, re-cut the first plank in the row.

                        Watch your pattern for even distribution of long and short pieces and avoid clusters of joints.

                      • CUSTOMER CARE

                        A:

                        Yes and no. Laminate flooring and nosing isn't ideal for stairs, fine for one or two steps but we caution the use of it on an entire staircase. People do it but it can be unsafe. Check your local building codes.  Hardwood flooring and nosing works well. When laminate IS used you must fully glue with 100% urethane adhesive without the use of padding, padding attached laminate must have paddling scraped off.

                        Generally you would cut off the existing overlapping stair nose and then install laminate nosing and flooring. Start from the bottom up and always dry fit everything before adhering.

                        The laminate flooring needs to be installed around the base cabinets to allow for expansion/contraction withthis floating product.

                      I am installing this product in a basement. There is a floor drain in the room. I am planning to close the floor drain permanently and install the product on top of it. Is that OK? Also, what is the minimal underlayment i should use. I am assuming that my concrete floor is not perfectly leveled

                        Floor drains are put into slabs for a reason, so not sure if it is OK in your situation.
                        If you decide to move forward make sure slab is flat to within 3/16" in 10 foot install a 6 mil poly moisture barrier first.
                        Proceed to install per instructions.

                      I just ordered this flooring for my home along with stair noses. I know laminate is usually glued down for stair installations. What is the proper procedure for installing this on stairs since it has an attached underlayment? There is nothing I could find in the installation guide on stair applications

                        Remove the padding from the laminate.

                        Floating Stair Step Installations:

                        1. Starting from the bottom of the staircase working up, cut the stair riser to match the height and width of the step. The risers can be made from the flooring or other finished material.
                        2. The flush Stair Nosing is then installed to overlap and cover the riser.
                        (Nail and glue for safety,)
                        3. Cut the flooring to length and assemble it with the Stair Nosing. The step
                        assembly can be done first and installed as one piece if preferred.
                        4. An additional "filler" piece of flooring must be added to the back of the flooring.

                        The Steps and Risers should be attached by direct gluing to the stair using 100& urethane
                        construction adhesive or wood mastic. (For safety, omit all padding)

                        TIP; fit and adjust each step before gluing.
                        Thank you for your inquiry.

                        I recommend using a 60 tooth carbide tip saw blade.
