About Builder's Pride:
Builder's Pride by Dura-Wood brings the beauty of a solid prefinished hardwood floor to your home.
Beautiful flooring, easy to install and with a 30 Year warranty so these floors will amaze you for years.

DURA-WOOD pre-finished hardwood floors are manufactured to meet the highest quality standards of the industry.

What is Natural Grade?
Natural Grade has some color variation, mineral coloring and small knots. It can also be referred to as #1 or 2nd grade.

Did you know?
Hardwood floors can be cleaned more thoroughly than carpeting, and they have a very durable surface that is easy to maintain.
When properly cared for, hardwood floors are extremely resistant to mildew and other types of problems associated with carpeting.

      We had this installed in our family room/living room and hallway. It is absolutely beautiful! Pictures don't do it justice. We are buying more to do our stairs. This is was first experience with Lumber Liquidators and it was seamless and exactly as stated every step of the way. We would like to praise Nataniel from the Waterford store, she really knows the product! Great experience all the way around.

          Comments about Casa de Colour 3/4" x 3-5/8" Tobacco Road Acacia:

          We were nervous to put this wood through the whole house- since it's a pretty busy pattern. But we absolutely love it. It's beautiful. We haven't moved in yet so I can't speak to its durability. Our friend who helped us get the installation started was impressed that there were very little that we had to throw out from each box.

          Also, we were very pleased with the price at LL. That made our decision easy.

                We put in it our dining room despite family and friends saying it wouldn't look right. It looks great! They are changing their minds when they see it. Acacia varies greatly in color so it matches many other types and colors of wood.

                Comments about Casa de Colour 3/4" x 3-5/8" Tobacco Road Acacia:

                Bought a box to see if we liked it.

                Coloration of the short leaf Acacia was awesome as advertised. More lighter and darker color variations than in other short leaf acacia brands. With the smaller width planks there is lot more movement and variation than other brands we've brought home.

                Other reviews noting the damage to the T&Gs, and varied board width's were accurate. 10% of the boards had unacceptable damage to the T&Gs, and a different 10% had large variations in the width of the boards which left 1/16-1/8 gaps along the seams (some had a taper and some alomst seemed notched).

                Manaer at store was great and said he would swap out those boards if we decided to go with this wood.

                We ended up going with the wider hand-scrapped acacia since it didn't have as many light areasm and would install faster and we wouldn't be dealing with damaged and not to spec boards.

                  Recommend using cleat nails instead of staples. They work better. The wood has very little waste due to imperfections. I like the coloring and different shades and once you put it all together it looks nice.

                    • Staff Reviewer

                      A:

                      Yes, as per NWFA Installation Guidelines:
                      National Wood Flooring Association ©2007 l Revised 05.2012
                      Chapter 10
                      Installation Over Existing Floors
                      Part I
                      Existing Floor Requirements
                      A. Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for installation over existing flooring.
                      B. Glue‐down parquet applications that require the use of PVA adhesives are not recommended over existing
                      sheet vinyl or vinyl and cork tile flooring unless an underlayment is put down first. Underlayment should be in
                      accordance with adhesive and/or flooring manufacturer’s recommendations.
                      C. Particleboard is not generally an acceptable underlayment, because it lacks stability. Some manufacturers
                      approve particleboard as an acceptable underlayment, as they do not warrant against subfloor movement. In
                      such cases, follow manufacturer’s recommendation.
                      D. Other types of adhesives may require the use of a primer or vinyl blocker when installing over sheet vinyl or
                      vinyl and cork tile flooring. Follow adhesive manufacturer’s recommendations.
                      E. Nail‐down applications may be successful over existing sheet vinyl or vinyl tile if fastener penetration is not
                      significantly diminished and the subfloor meets minimum requirements. Fasteners must penetrate a proper
                      subfloor by at least 5/8”.
                      F. Wood flooring can be installed over existing ceramic tile, terrazzo, or marble with proper underlayment or
                      adhesives only on manufacturer's recommendation.
                      G. Installing wood flooring over an existing wood floor.
                      Caution: Do not sand any surfaces containing lead based finishes/paints or asbestos. Check applicable local
                      and federal EPA and OSHA regulations. For buildings built in 1978 and earlier, contact the EPA for lead based
                      testing prior to any sanding (www.epa.gov).
                      1. If safe to do so (see caution above), sand off old finish and or high spots and prep to clean, dry, sound and
                      flat. Repair, renail or replace loose flooring products as needed.
                      2. Over an existing glue‐down floor, glue direct to the existing floor. Or, if the thickness of the floor will allow
                      it, staple to the existing floor. Check with the flooring manufacturer for recommendations.
                      3. When installing new wood flooring parallel to an existing solid nail‐down floor, add a minimum of 3/8”
                      plywood underlayment over the existing floor to increase stability. Check with the flooring manufacturer
                      for recommendations.
                      4. When installing new wood flooring at a 45‐degree to 90‐degree angle to an existing solid nail‐down floor,
                      additional underlayment may not be required.

                    I know dogs are hard on hardwood. We currently have pergo installed currently and no matter how fast you wipe a spill the flooring mushrooms up. I have a dog and I have family that visits with 2 dogs. I'm wondering how this will stand up over time. I'm really like this look. also are all the planks relatively short? Also are there anti bacterial or anti microbial underlayment for hardwood?

                      A:

                      Despite today's advanced technology, water spills, dirt and other abrasive substances can damage a wood floor's finish. Location, traffic patterns, how often the floor is vacuumed and cleaned, children and/or pets are all factors that influence wear and durability. Yes we do offer anti microbial underlayments such as Bellawood Premium and Eco Silent Sound HD.

                      High heels or spiked heels are damaging to hardwood flooring. They strike the floor with more force per inch than an elephant's foot. High or spiked heels in disrepair are especially harmful, as the heel acts much like a tiny hammer pounding away at the floor with as much force as 10,000 pounds per inch!

                      Hardwood flooring is regularly used in kitchens. We recommend placing throw rugs by sink as spills and moisture can harm hardwood flooring. Spills should be toweled up promptly.

                      This flooring should be nailed only or use Elastilon self adhesive underlayment as your installation system.
