Comments about Prefinished Colonial Plank Threshold:

This flooring is beautiful installed. My husband and I are extremely happy with this flooring. It was easy to work with. We installed almost 1,000 square feet in three days....prep work extra, of course. We have two large dogs. The finish and the variety in the wood work really well to keep scratches and dings hidden. I have just used shoe polish to hide larger scratches. LOVE IT and would recomend it to anyone!

  • Q:

    How would the durability of this product compare with oak?

      A:

      Birch is marginally harder than oak. As for the finish there is 7 coats of Treffert or Klumpp (made in Germany) highly resistant polyurethane finish with aluminum oxide anti-scratch and a 55% gloss. The same finish on oak would wear the same.

  • Q:

    We recently installed the handscraped cocoa birch in our dining room. It is stunning... but, within a week, it was already scratched up and looking a mess. I bought some espresso stain and touched it up and that worked well. Now I'd like to polyurethane a few coats over the stain to protect the floor from future damage. Would a waterbased polyurethane work on this finish? I tested on an extra piece and it seems to be adhering well. Thanks

      A:

      Section sanding and finishing is possible. You can tape around the effected boards, sand, and finish with a semigloss flooring grade waterbased urethane. The closest way to match gloss is to go to a local homecenter that has a computer matching system where they can read a sample of the flooring gloss percentage. This will give you decent results but is a bit of work. Resealing will void warranty. Sealer won't adhere to original finish unless it's lightly sanded and then use a water based flooring grade urethane. Or you would use a Bona Kemi prefinished floor resealing product. Www.bonakemi.com. However this is not recommended for pre-finished flooring unless it is worn and in need of refinishing.


      If your floor becomes scratched or dull, repairs can often be made using ColorFill Floor Repair Putty.

      Other Options; Our "Scratch Away" works well (SKU 10021566), or Bona Kemi Hardwood Floor Refresher, this may be your best and easiest answer for general wear and tear.


      Proper care will help prevent scratches. An additional coat will not be as tough as original.
      .

      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.

  • Q:

    Why does installation instructions say 'do not install flooring under permanent or fixed cabinetry'?
    Asked on 1/28/2013 by anonymous

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      When kitchen base cabinets are installed over a floor the boards can separate or buckle when the moisture level (relative humidity) and temperature changes due to lack of expansion space.

      Answered on 2/5/2013 by cc-2
  • Q:

    what expansion room should be left between this and the wall? I see in the installation instructions it says 5/8" is this correct? Also, I was reading the other questions and a response to one them is you cannot use 18gauge staples or cleats because of the thickness of this product. However it is stated that the boards are 5/8" so from what I am reading 18 gauge would be just fine. Please correct if I am wrong.

      A:

      Yes 5/8" expansion is required.
      18 gauge flooring cleats will work but not 18 gauge staples as they are not long enough.

  • Q:

    can I purchase a gallon of stain for this product to do some touch-ups? does Lumber Liquidators or Virginia Mill Work sell the stain?

    if not what do you suggest to stain the floor after sanding a few touch-up areas?

      A:

      Unfortunately this stain is not available in a can for retail sale. I would recommend bringing a scrap piece of the flooring to a paint store and they should be able to match the stain for you. Thank you for your inquiry.

  • Q:

    I have large (inside) dogs. What spec(s) should I look for specifically when considering which wood to choose?
    Asked on 9/4/2011 by Angela from Evans, GA

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      Low gloss laminates with AC3 ratings tend to be the most durable and scratch resistant. Many people also like to use ¾” hard solid wood flooring because it can be refinished many times if the dogs were to create a lot of scratches and wear to the flooring. Natural Strand bamboo could also work because it is such a hard species of flooring.
