About Distressed Flooring:
Distressed hardwood floors have a natural worn appearance. They look like floors from the days when floors were finished by hand.
Please note this product is a nominal 3/4" thick, but due to its scraping process the thickness may be as thin as 5/8" in the scraped areas.

    Comments about Virginia Mill Works 3/4" x 4-3/4" Tobacco Road Handscraped:

    We installed this flooring about 10 years ago. It is as beautiful today as the day we put it in. It with stands, big dogs, kids, dirt & heavy traffic. We have little to no scratches anyway. It is always the first comment we hear when we have company - everyone loves this floor. Absolutely worth the $$$$. I'm moving and will install this on the entire main floor of our new house.

    Service and delivery comments:

    No problems - I picked up. They were quick to load me & very helpful on what I would need to install.

            Had it installed recently and everyone that comes in can't say enough about it. We are so pleased. Already tested by the three grandchildren, five and under, it passed. Looks so rich. You won't be sorry.

            Comments about Virginia Mill Works 3/4" x 4-3/4" Tobacco Road Handscraped:

            We had this flooring installed in our living room about 5 years ago and it was beautiful and still is beautiful. At that time I would have given it 5 stars. This past month we had it installed in the master bedroom and the quality difference was very apparent. It was harder for the installer to fit the pieces together. The pieces came in shorter lengths than 5 years ago. The "hand scrapping" now looks the same on all boards, no variation like the floor we installed 5 years ago. Looks like they went to different mill and possibly different wood source. A bit disappointed this time in Lumber Liquidators and Virginia Mills.

              I bought Real wood for my loft to support a pool tale and engineered wood for my dinning room area. Both area look great. Make sure you fully understand that LL has a 30 day return. My guy was awesome and let me trade my excess real wood for downstairs engineered wood. My board hard a little warping as a wood will have but not twist like I have had with other makes.

                  Only two things I was not happy with. It did not match my existing floor color even though I was told it was the same. Luckily there is enough variation in the material and it is in the bedrooms. And, this is a very dense solid wood and not sure how you are suppose to nail/staple it down since staples would not go into the material. Did not have this problem with previous wood floor.

                    Comments about Virginia Mill Works 3/4" x 4-3/4" Tobacco Road Handscraped:

                    If you're reading this, you probably were drawn to the Tobacco Road Acacia by its beauty just as we were. You should also know that it's a very practical option, as small (or "short") leaf acacia -- which this is -- is harder than many other types of wood commonly used for flooring, which means that it won't dent as easily as some others. And yes, in case you're wondering, it's just as beautiful installed as the reviews and photos suggest.

                    Be aware of -- but don't be put off by -- the shortness of acacia planks compared to some others. The tree just doesn't grow very tall, so you aren't going to get 6- or 8-foot long boards. Officially Lumber Liquidators claims what you'll receive will range from 1 foot to 3 feet in length (with a corresponding average length of 24 inches), but the shortest we received was about 18 inches long and the longest just under 4 feet, which my research suggests is about as large as you can get with acacia. As I said, though, don't be put off by this, because you don't really notice the lengths once it's installed, possibly because of how much variety there is in each plank's appearance.

                    As far as the quality of the milling goes, we had no issues there either. We currently have about 1000' sq. of the stuff installed and there weren't any problems with variation in the widths. Officially you're told to expect to throw away up to 5% of the stuff to account for defects, but again in my experience that's a cautious estimate. In fact, we bought the recommended amount (taking into account the 5% waste and a little leftover for hypothetical future repairs) and because we have so much left over and we're so pleased with the results, we'll be using some of the leftover acacia on a set of stairs that we had originally planned to leave carpeted.

                    Bottom line: if you're considering this flooring, I highly recommend you go for it. You won't be sorry.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Our interactions with the folks from Lumber Liquidators -- and there have been a handful of them by now -- have without exception been very positive. I've dealt with three or four different people in the Plano, Texas store and every one of them was always polite, helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. My wife also met with at least one person at the Carrollton store and had a similarly positive experience.

                    Lastly, the guys who delivered the flooring were equally as helpful, accommodating, and professional as the employees in the store, so I have nothing but good things to say about the service we've received; it really complimented the product and made for a very positive experience with Lumber Liquidators.

                            Hand scraped and distressed flooring can be resurfaced using the FA-8 abrader which is designed to abrade all types of factory-finished floors.
                            Its unique cylindrical-designed brushes allow you to abrade with or against the pattern grain of the floor, making it ideal for parquet, herring bone, distressed and hand-scraped flooring. The multiple brush grit offerings allow for various applications including abrading between coats during site finish applications.
                            We recommend that hardwood floor refinishing be done by a professional and if you are not sure if you can refinish your flooring have professional sand and finish expert come to your home and evaluate your flooring. Thank you for your inquiry.

                          Regarding TOBACCO ROAD ACACIA - HAND SCRAPED: I'm very interested in this product, but am finding reviews that board widths are not consistent and this makes installation more timely and more difficult because the installer has to ensure same-width boards are grouped to complete each width-sized row across the floor. And, if you don't have enough of the width size to complete rows, or your floor, in your order - you end up having to buy more of this product to fill in the row gaps, and have extra non-used/non-usable wood that doesn't match up when the project is completed. QUESTIONS: 1)Is there a quality control money-back guarantee if boards aren't the same width when delivered? 2) Can I get a guarantee that any boards of non-matching width can be exchanged (no charge) for correctly (and matching) width boards?

                            The customer/installer is responsible for final inspection of quality, and for moisture testing the subfloor and wood flooring. During installation, use reasonable board selectivity and good judgment. From a standing position any individual board deemed unacceptable in appearance should not be used. Defects should be cut off placing the remainder in closets or near walls. To minimize gapping, boards of similar widths should be placed together in the same row. If milling or quality is suspected stop the installation and call the manufacturer. Most manufacturers agree that a reasonable amount of installed flooring is enough to stop and determine acceptable product quality, as an example; up to 30% for projects less than 500 sq ft or up to five boxes of flooring for projects 1000 sq ft or more. Because use constitutes acceptance, once the flooring is completely installed it is deemed free of visual problems and appropriate for use by all parties concerned. The manufacturer shall not be responsible for costs associated with repairing or replacing flooring installed with visible defects. Our floors are manufactured in accordance with accepted industry standards that may allow possible defects caused by (manufacturing or nature) not to exceed 5%. Before installation, if more than 5% of the purchased material is unusable contact your local store or call CUSTOMER CARE immediately.

                            SUBFLOOR PREPARATION
                            Wood subfloors
                            Shorter floor boards also need to be properly fasten therefore do not install flooring directly over floor joist without proper subflooring.
                            • All structural subfloor panels must be installed sealed-side down, and provide minimum ¾” perimeter spacing. Square-edged or non tongue and grooved panels used as a subfloor will require a minimum 1/8˝ (3 mm) expansion space placed between all plywood seams. Panels must meet minimum CDX grade Exposure 1 and US Voluntary Product Standard PS1-95, PS2-04 or Canadian performance standard CAN/CSA 0325-0-92 for construction sheathing. Check panel for codes.
                            • Solid planks used for subflooring should be ¾” x 5 1/2” (1” x 6” nominal), Group 1 dense softwoods, No. 2 Common, kiln-dried to less than 12% percent moisture content.
                            • Particleboard, Luan or Masonite: is not recommended, remove or cover with 3/8” plywood.
                            • Minimum of 3/8˝CDX panel thickness is recommended when used as an underlayment over an existing subfloor.
                            • Avoid pressure treated plywood for interior use. These can have elevated moisture or latent with rot resistant chemicals.
                            Note that joist spacing determines minimum subfloor thickness.
                            • Joist spacing 16” on center (OC)
                            Plywood: Minimum of (5/8˝) Oriented Strand Board (OSB): Minimum (3/4˝, 23/32”) Advantech Minimum (3/4˝, 23/32”)
                            • Joist spacing 16” up to 19.2” (OC)
                            Plywood: Minimum of (3/4˝, 23/32”) Oriented Strand Board (OSB): Minimum of (3/4˝, 23/32”)
                            • Joist spacing over 19.2”up to maximum 24” (OC)
                            Plywood: Minimum of (7/8”) Oriented Strand Board (OSB): Minimum of (1”)

                            A:

                            The way a floor is treated or maintained can affect its longevity. In addition, there is no relationship between the hardness or denseness of exotic species and its resistance to surface scratches. Wood floor manufactures do not offer warranties of protection against denting or scratches, rather product warranties refer to milling defects and finish wear within specified periods of time.

                            While some finishes may claim to be harder, all top finishes whether Oil or Water based urethanes are generally listed as scratch resistant though not scratch proof. Actually, our pre-finished Bellawood and Dura-Wood is superior to any site applied finish. This is because site finished floors with only 2 or 3 coats require time to fully “air cure” which can be problematic on days with high humidity.

                            Our Bellawood floors are factory pre-finished with an UV cured urethane finish, which is scratch resistant and abrasion resistant. Using a multi-step application process many coats of finish are applied to domestic and exotic wood species and each coat is hard-cured using Ultraviolet (UV) light. Bellawood pre-finished flooring offers superior wear resistance and is backed by a limited 100-year Transferrable warranty! Maintaining the appearance of any wood floor requires close attention to in-door climate controls during seasonal changes.

                            Wood floors like furniture will scratch and dent if not properly protected. It is recommended to use furniture pads (included in our cleaning kit) under the furniture legs. Pet nails should be kept trimmed and sharp objects (including high heels) kept away from the floor. Often scratches can be adequately repaired using liquid scratch covers. Dents and nicks can be filled using wood floor repair kits available at your local home store. If your floor is severely damaged please consult a professional about refinishing, an individual board replacement may be all that’s needed.

                            A:

                            Our wood floors are manufactured for maximum durability, easy maintenance and finished with a high quality aluminum oxide water base urethane UV cured finish. This step protects the wood and helps keep the flooring looking beautiful longer. While highly durable, the finish is NOT considered indestructible. However, by observing a few precautions like setting up a regular cleaning routine and simple maintenance program to protect the finish, you can expect years of performance and beauty from your wood floor. All wood floors can show signs of wear over time. There are many factors that can affect the amount of wear. These include the size and lifestyle of your family and product location.
                            The following cleaning principles are recommended for all of our products -Hardwood, Laminates, Corks, Bamboo and other Exotics. Outlined are examples of the reasonable and necessary maintenance to be performed; this is only intended to be a basic list;
                            • Immediately after installation, be certain that the flooring is completely cleaned and dry as described below. If you must protect the flooring from traffic, use only “craft” paper, brown, red or white, this will allow the flooring to “breathe”. Do not fully cover the flooring. NEVER lay plastic of any kind or any other non-porous material over the flooring as this can trap moisture, harm the flooring or fade the finish.
                            • Sweep or vacuum regularly, since built-up dirt, grit and sand can damage the surface of the wood. If using a vacuum, use a soft brush attachment -NOT A BEATER BAR ATTACHMENT. Be certain the wheels of the vacuum are clean and do not damage the finish. When using a broom be certain that bristles are soft. You can also use a dry mop.
                            • Because of the myriad of cleaning products available and methods of each application, Lumber Liquidators cannot endorse or oversee the use of any Brand Name of floor cleaner. We do recommend cleaning products safe for urethane finishes such as our Bellawood floor cleaner and Dream Home Cleaner.
                            • The use of a changeable terry cloth type system to clean the floor is highly recommended; apply cleaning solution to the terry cloth.
                            • NEVER use oil soaps or paste wax products or other household cleaners that contain lemon oil, Tung oil, silicone, or ammonia on pre-finished flooring. The use of these products will harm the long-term performance and appearance of your floor and may affect future re-coating. (Damages caused by non-recommended cleaning products are not covered by warranties). NOTE: This also includes the use of vinegar. Vinegar is an acidic element that can have an oxidizing, caustic effect on the finish.
                            • In an effort to clean hardwood floors, many have experimented with a variety of cleaners on the market and end up with a new problem. “How to remove the build-up of cleaning products revealing the original surface"? If this is the case with you, we recommend consulting with a professional cleaner local to your area because they can best see the details involved and make the most accurate recommendations. If you choose to remove the layers of build-up yourself, use cotton rags instead of a mop to control the amount of liquid used.
                            • NEVER wet-mop or flood your floor with water or any other product. Moisture can seep into the seams causing edge-cupping damage. Urethane floors do not require wet mopping. Natural floors are water resistant, not water proof. Remove all spills promptly using a soft, slightly damp cloth
                            • STEAM CLEANERS ; Lumber Liquidators does not recommend Water brooms or steamer type cleaners on laminates, bamboo, engineered wood, corks or hardwood floors. Although steamers may work well cleaning OTHER types of hard surface flooring, the 130° to 240° heated steam vapor can ruin wood or urethane finish resulting in finish issues, warped, or cupped flooring. Water and wood do not mix well, especially steam. Use these products at your own risk.
                            • Do place protective mats at entry doors to keep dirt, grit, sand and moisture from being track in from the outside.
                            • Do use area rugs in heavily traveled areas and pivot points (e.g., stair landings, room entries, etc.), especially if you have a large family or indoor pets.
                            • When using area rugs, use a rug pad with a felt, plant or PVC based backing. DO NOT use area rugs with a petroleum based rubber backing (typically black) as this can cause permanent chemical staining/etching of the floor finish.
                            • Take reasonable precautions; use a dolly and protective sheets of plywood when moving heavy objects such as furniture and appliances.
                            • Place protective pads beneath furniture legs and feet to reduce scratches and dents. Check and replace wore pads regularly.
                            • Keep pet’s nails trimmed, and paws clean and free of dirt, gravel, grease, oil, and stains.
                            • Scratches, dents and cupping are site related, not considered a manufactured defect.
