BELLAWOOD CLEARANCE! 3/4" x 5" Brazilian Cherry
We Redefined Quality, Again. We set the quality standard by introducing a groundbreaking finish so tough it allowed us to offer one of the first 50 year warranties. Others followed. So, we raised the bar again. Now Bellawood is backed by a Certified 100 Year Transferable Warranty that covers you and generations to come.
Brazilian Cherry is one of our most popular woods because of its ideal balance of rich beauty and proven durability. Its majestic colors range from a yellowish tan to reddish brown when just milled, and it deepens significantly to an exquisite deep cherry brown as it ages. For spaces that demand durability year after year, residential or commercial, Brazilian Cherry is an excellent flooring choice.

Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/4" x 5" Brazilian Cherry:
The Brazilian cherry product from Bellawood has to be the hardest floor surface I have ever experienced next to bamboo. I've accidentally dropped my carpenter's hammer on the floor and had one heck of a time finding the miniscule dent that it left.

Q:Can this flooring be installed on concrete floors?
A:FLOATING INSTALLATION – Flooring not attached to the subfloor
Q:How dent and scratch resistant is cherry wood flooring. Compared to other hard woods is it the hardest
A:Brazilian Cherry ( Trade Name: Jatoba) has a Janka Rating: 2820 compare to red Oak @ 1290.
Q:CAn you use a steam mop (no chemicals) to clean the floor
A:Lumber Liquidators does not recommend "Water brooms" "Wet-Jet Swiffers or steamer type cleaners on laminates, 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 warped or cupped flooring. Water and wood do not mix well, especially steam. Use these products at your own risk.
Q:Many installers say that Brazilian Cherry 5" width must be nailed down and glued down together. They say that if it not glued down, the board is much more susceptible to change in humidity and can display wide gaps. I did not see glue down requirement in installation guide. So should I go for glue in addition to nails? Thanks!
A:Normally hardwood, the width sizes of 2"-3 1/2" are referred to as strip floorings. Widths sizes 4"- 6" are referred to as boards and 8"- 12" are refereed to as Planks.
Q:Could rhis be used in Bathroom
A:Wood flooring can be installed through out the home, but there are concerns about installation in bathrooms. Bathrooms are areas of high moisture. With full baths there are concerns with water spills, high humidity due to steamy showers, and toilet over flows. Elevated moisture in a full bath can create finish issues, board warping, and buckling. When installing in these areas extreme caution is advised and it is recommended to choose wood flooring with high stability. Make sure you have good air flow and use mats to absorb moisture when coming out of the tube or shower. Many wood floors will not be warranted in a bathroom application. An alternative would be our Tranquility vinyl Click flooring. The Tranquility vinyl click flooring looks like real wood, but will not be affected by moisture like wood floors.
Q:is the flooring normally installed under cabinets
A:Flooring should be installed AFTER cabinets are installed. This is because flooring needs to expand and contract freely. Expansion gaps are needed around perimeter and around any fixed vertical obstructions. Quarter Round molding or shoe molding is used to cover the expansion gap.
