BELLAWOOD 3/4" x 2-1/4" Select Brazilian Koa Prefinished Solid Hardwood Flooring

Finished to Last. We apply our durable, industry-leading finish to each board using a groundbreaking multi-layered, micro-particle process for superior wear and scratch resistance. So, go ahead—bring on life and everything that comes with it. Your Bellawood floor will stay beautiful year after year.

One look and it's easy to see why Brazilian Koa is often called Tigerwood. Its distinctive orange coloring and brown/black striping make it one of the most unique and exotic species available on the market today. And its durability is simply outstanding, resulting in a "not-so-everyday" floor that will stand up year after year to life's everyday demands.
This product is proudly finished in the USA.

We caught up with real Lumber Liquidators' customers who volunteered to discuss their floor shopping, buying and installation experiences. In no way did these customers receive compensation for their kind words. (They're speaking straight from the heart.)

About "Select Grade" Flooring
Select Grade has the most uniform color with no large knots and the longest average lenght of planks. Also referred to as First Grade.

It Taber Tested "the Best." When subjected to the industry sandpaper abrasion test, known as Taber Testing, Bellawood's durability results were more than double most comparably priced floors. There's good, there's better—and then there's Bellawood.

 


QUALITY GUARANTEE: NO formaldehyde is used in the manufacturing or construction of this flooring.

            I fell in love with the attractivenss of this floor, but became easily disappointed shortly after installation. We have an open floor plan on the 1st floor and utilized this floor throughout the dining room, living room, and hallway. Within 2 months, there were scratches everywhere from our 2 medium sized dogs. We spent a lot of money for something to scratch so quickly! Rather disappointed!

              We installed your Koa in our living room a couple of years ago, and I was very pleased with the look. Then we decided to add on to the existing house. We doubled the size of the living room, and this is our second order of Koa. The existing Koa has been tramped over by all the contractor's workers. We live in a sandy area, so you can imagine the beating it has taken.....drywallers, electricians, plumbers, HVACers, framers...plus some areas of the house were open and allowed dampness and humidity to enter. The Koa took all this and looks just as great as it did when it first made me smile! Amazing and very, very classy!

                Have installed this wood in every room in the home except kitchen,bathrooms, and sunroom. It looks beautiful and easy to clean. Color darkens over time making it even more rich and warm. Just finished my final bedroom with this product. It took me 5yrs to complete by doing one room at a time as I could afford. It was worth every penny.

                  During a kitchen remodel, we installed this flooring over our entire 1st floor, and it looked absolutely beautiful! As it ages, the color darkens and becomes richer. However, as soon as it was down, I noticed areas of the boards where the finish did not seem to make it to the edges. There were also boards with marks already in the finish. After only one year, the marks in it are incredible. It is advertised as being harder than oak, but my oak floors looked better after 15 years than this does after only one. There is already a hunk that popped off an edge of one of the floorboards, so now I have a missing piece to my wood. Even with felt protectors on the bottoms, there are "dig" marks from my kitchen stools. Anything and everything moved over this wood leaves a mark/scratch/dig into the wood. Beautiful, yes; durable, absolutely not. Thousands of dollars later, and I'm very disappointed.

                    Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/4" x 2-1/4" Brazilian Koa:

                    My brother, a construction professional, installed this floor for us. It took him a day and a half to do this small (11x11) room, but he also went slowly and artistically, pulled the most beautiful pieces from the boxes and planned how he wanted the floor to look. We had to go back and buy an extra box, because the store estimated we only needed 5% over the measurements rather than the standard, 20% more than measured area. We needed every bit of the extra, but it was worth it!
                    Also, installing the 2 1/4-inch planks takes much longer than installing a wider plank. The thinner planks, however, give the room a more formal feel.
                    This is a dining room, but right now it's still empty so that I can look at the beauty every day. :)
                    We also have dogs, and just to be safe and protect the floor, we restrict their access to this room. As the dogs get accustomed to the difference in the floor, we'll give them more privileges. So far there are no scratches or dings.
                    Hope to extend the Brazilian Koa into our large family room, but I would use the wider planks.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Customer service was excellent! We had a wonderful experience, which is rare! Loved working with our LL professionals; they know their product.

                        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.

                        A:

                        Bellawood products will offer you the most durable and resistant finish on the market today. Sand abbrasion tests have shown it to be more than twice as hard as other floors, making an excellent choice for families with pets and in high traffic areas. Brazilian Koa has a 2160 rating on the janka scale, making it 67% harder than Oak. Other exotic species like Brazilian Cherry or Brazilian Redwood have a higher janka rating making them more difficult to dent. Please feel free to contact our product specialists at 1-800-476-0007 with any additional questions or to further discuss your project.

                        A:

                        Our Bellawood floors are factory pre-finished with an aluminum oxide water-base urethane using a multi-step application process. (8) coats are applied to most 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 warranty! Maintaining the appearance of any wood floor requires close attention to in-door climate controls during seasonal changes.

                        A:

                        We can only recommend our Bellawood Floor Cleaner, or cleaners that are safe for water based urethane finishes. Never use any polish, wax, oil soaps or cleaners that add shine to the floor. Thank you for your inquiry.
                        Our Bellawood floor cleaner does not contain any polishes ,wax or anything that will build on the surface and is recommended to be used on all our flooring products. I do hear of this scenario often enough and it always prooves out that there was another cleaning product used previously on the floor that is reacting to the Bellawood cleaner. Most likely once the residue is removed from the original factory finish the floor can be maintained easily. Thank you for your inquiry.
                        We do not recommend steam mops or Roomba Scooba robots on our laminates or on any of our wood floor products. Although appropriate for kitchen sheet vinyl or ceramic tiles, wood, laminate and cork floorings have raw seam edges that can swell or cup with use of these cleaning methods. We recommend our Bellawood Floor Cleaner, or cleaners that are safe for water based urethane finishes. Thank you for your inquiry.

                        This is a solid 3/4" nail down wood product but can be floated using our Elastilon underlayment system.
                        Where do I find installation instructions / product warranty information?
                        Lumber Liquidators posts installation instructions on our website through the Customer Care and Flooring 101 web pages for easy installation, including helpful hints.
