Comments about Builder's Pride 3/4" X 4-1/4" Select Maple Flooring:

We went with the lowest price, and that's what we got - a cheap floor. I really wish someone had talked us out of installing this product in our kitchen. Definitely lightens the room because it is light in color although I wonder if that is why every scratch and dent also shows so much. Scratches very easily - already purchased an area rug for eat-in area of kitchen and also feel that we need to get an area rug for our dining room to cover/protect this fragile floor. [...] If you're spending the money for hardwood floors, take our advice - spend a little more for better quality.

      The flooring looks beautiful. We have it installed in our kitchen, foyer and dining room. The only downfall is that it scrataches and dents very easily. Not sure if given the choice again I would install in the kitchen, especially with having 3 small children.

            Beautiful finish, consistent quality, and is wearing very well! I installed about 800 SF of this floor in my new construction house. Went down beautifully and looks amazing! The planks were consistent in height and cut, very little warping, and installed easily. My floor is the natural maple finish, and it's fantastic. I definitely recommend!

              Comments about Builder's Pride 3/4" X 4-1/4" Select Maple Flooring:

              Even at LL's regular price I don't think any other stores can touch the price. When on sale there's no choice to make...buy it. The lightness of maple (esp. select quality) will give you a very contemporary look so take that into consideration. But if that's what you are looking for then this is what to buy. Solid hardwood is timeless, just be aware that maple is softer than most other choices, and supposed to be more susceptible to humidity. I will put rugs over the areas that will receive the most traffic, and keep an eye on the humidity.

              There was very little waste in the 26 boxes I received. My only warning is some of the widths were 1/16" wider and some thinner than 4 1/4". By taking the extra step of measuring each board's width you can save them for their own row. Otherwise you will end up with gaps, esp. if you place a thin board next to a wide one.

              Another note, which may be common with all hardwood, is that the grooves that run the long side vs. the short differ slightly. I used perpendicular transitions and at one point I have a squeak because of the looseness. Later I started using a router and strips you can buy separately (cheaply) to make new grooves and tongues so that there was no play at the other transitions.

              All-in-all this investment in my house is the largest home improvement and most noticeable I could have made; and incredibly for about a third of what I paid for my maple cabinets earlier.

              • Q:

                Is it acceptable to use extra finish over the hardwood floor once it is installed to add to durability?
                Asked on 3/29/2012 by Josh from Rutland, VT

                1 answer

                • Staff Reviewer

                  A:

                  You could reseal prefinished flooring after it is installed, but this would void the finish warranty on the flooring and create extra expense for you after already buying a new floor with a 20, 30, or 50yr finish warranty. Adding a new finish won’t prevent all moisture from going into the seams. Wood will expand and contract with climate changes. If the flooring were to contract later and create seasonal gapping, a spill can cause water to get into the gaps. It is best to only add a new finish when the old finish starts to wear more than you like or if you have a lot of scratches you want covered up. We recommend that you use a professional sand and finish expert if you did decide to add a new finish to the flooring. Thank you for your inquiry.

                  Builders Pride does have a "millrun" grade that has a mixture of Select and Natural grades.
                  Select grade will have more longer lengths.

                  This select grade flooring comes in random lengths 1'-7' average board length approx. 3' long.
                  SUMMARY: Select Grade flooring contains natural characteristics such as small knots and minor color variations produced by differences in natural heartwood and sapwood; however, has a more uniform color and longer average plank length compared to Natural grade flooring products.

                • Staff Reviewer

                  A:

                  Unfortunately not.
                  This is a solid 3/4" product designed to be nailed to a wood substrate. However; it can be floated using our Elastilon product.
                  What you should know about Elastilon Strong
                  • An Elastilon-backed wood floor is much faster to install than traditional nail or glue-down methods.
                  • Elastilon Strong can be installed on new concrete floors, handling up to 3.9% moisture content. A vapour barrier of at least 6 mil PE should be used below grade and on newly poured concrete above grade where the moisture content is above 3.9%.
                  • Laid down with a 5/8” (15 mm) expansion gap, Elastilon Strong creates a dynamic, floating floor that expands or contracts naturally with the hardwood.
                  • Elastilon Strong has no odor and is free of volatile materials.
                  • Elastilon Strong gives cushioned comfort.
                  • 1/8” (3 mm) thick Elastilon Strong has ratings of IIC 62 and STC 54.
                  • Thermal resistance: R _ 0,15 (m K) / W
                  • Elastilon Strong carries a 70-year limited warranty.
