BELLAWOOD 3/8" x 3" Select Brazilian Cherry Prefinished Solid Hardwood Flooring

A Floor so Special, Home Sellers mention it by Name. When selling a home, unique features come first. And the name "Bellawood" can be found at the top of sellers' lists again and again. Couple that with a Certified 100 Year Transferable Warranty and it's certain to catch the eye of discerning buyers when the time comes.

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.
This product is proudly finished in the USA.

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.

    Yes, the flooring itself looks great and I'm very excited to see the final product in my home. I have never installed hardwood flooring and feel anxious to try installing this flooring without someone with experience on-site. Any advice or suggestions?

      Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/8" x 3" Brazilian Cherry:

      We installed this product a couple of years ago,in our family room and love the way it looks. Since we are remodeling our kitchen we decided to install it in our kitchen. Just as we remembered, it is very difficult to install. Most nailers are to big, and will split the tongue. Plus this product is not very durable. It has only been down a little more than two weeks, and someone dropped something on it and is dented already. Wish, we had done something different this time. Since it is in the kitchen and things get dropped more often. If i could return it, and get something else i would.

      Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/8" x 3" Brazilian Cherry:

      We installed this floor in our family room. It looks fantastic still. We have three very active dogs (2 pitbulls and an American Mastiff) and the floor still looks great. I put it down almost three years ago and my wife now wants it in our living and dining rooms. There are only one or two scratches in it from furniture not from everyday use and 80-200 pound dogs playing on it. Furinture scratch remover covers sctatches easily.
      The cork underlayment is a good sound deadener. It made our hardwood is quieter than our tile floor, even with women in high heels.
      It is very hard and nailing can be a little difficult. I used the 2" staples but will try a smaller length L cleat for the next 400 foot run which I hope will make the job a little easier.

      Product arrived within the specified time. I picked it up and installed it myself.

        Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/8" x 3" Brazilian Cherry:

        We selected this product based on what we saw in the store. The first 1,700 square feet went from poor to great. The living room (400 square feet) looks great but it's nail down. The rest varies from horrible warping to satisfactory (glue down on concrete). I wanted to change to another floor at a transition point (doorway) but my wife wants to finish the home (another 1,200 square feet) with Bellawood like we started with. We will, in the very near future, tear out the bedroom floor that looks horrible with warping and bad boards and replace. That's an expense for 250 sqaure feet we had not planned for. When it is finished, I hope the total project looks satisfactory. Right now, I'm very skeptical.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Part of this order was prompt. However, five boxes from another store are still missing. When delivery originally was arranged, it was to be by a large 18-wheeler and dropped at the end of the driveway (150 feet up to house). We declined and Lumber Liquidators arranged for a lift-gate and it was delivered nearer to the house in a driveway and then moved into the house by the store staff. Thanks to the store staff for that. Hope I get my last five boxes.

          Installed in a 166sqft living room and very happy with outcome.

          Service and delivery comments:

          This was my first purchase from Lumber Liquidators and overall it was a good experience. However there is some room for improvement:
          1. My local store was out of stock and I had to drive 80miles roundtrip to pick up the flooring.
          2. The store I had to travel to couldn't have been more difficult to find even with GPS.
          3. The 20% restocking fee seems draconian.

          The floor is so beautiful. I almost wish it wouldn't darken because I love it as is. But, you have to be careful. We hired an installer and he screwed up some boards, had to rent a gun, and generally was sloppy. So make sure they've worked with such a hard wood before.

              Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/8" x 3" Brazilian Cherry:

              We stalled this flooring in our great room at our lake home. We have small grandchildren and some sand from the beach. This floor scratch immediately from kids' toys, furniture (even though we have pads on them) but the sand doesn't seem to bother it. Very unhappy with this product and will NOT use it again. Some of the boards we're of poor quality and almost warped which made installation a challenge.

              Service and delivery comments:

              We ordered this flooring and picked it up ourselves at a location 45 miles one way from our place. We bought 11 boxes and when we started laying the flooring, we discovered 2 boxes were labled Brazilian cherry but were clearly something much different. They were very good about getting the correct boxes to us in a time frame that worked for us. (we're only here certain times.) So, despite the error, they corrected it after a few phone calls.

                  Boards seem slightly narrower than existing 3" boards. But I think they are different manufacturers. As a result I have some gapping, but the look beautiful an a little wood filler takes care of the minor issue.

                      Brazilian Cherry is naturally that color. Our Bellawood floors are factory pre-finished with a UV cured urethane finish . During the multi-step application process, each coat is cured using Ultraviolet (UV) light. Bellawood pre-finished flooring offers superior wear resistance and is backed by a limited 100-year transferable warranty!

                      A:

                      Yes. 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.

                      Our Select products will have random length boards that will be between 12” and 84” with the average length being around 36".

                    I am getting ready to install 3/8 x 3 Brazilian Cherry solid on concrete slab, at grade, in Houston, TX in the next couple of weeks. I want to introduce another layer of moisture protection in addition to using the recommended glue with moisture barrier.

                    Can I use a penetrating concrete sealer like Foundation Armor L3000 which penetrates concrete 2 inches and seals the pores, effectively waterproofing the concrete slab to 100 psi? The surface of the concrete will remain the same as before but pores would be plugged. Sealer characteristics are as follows:

                    Penetrates up to 2' into the concrete
                    Stops water migration (hydrostatic pressure) up to 100 PSI
                    Stops vapor transmission up to 0.015 WVT
                    Stops alkali and efflorescence attack
                    Strengthens substrate by up to 45%
                    Increases the bond strength of epoxies, paints, and stains by up to 20%
                    Goes on and dries clear does not leave behind a coating or film

                      It seems to be okay however check with the manufacturer to ensure compatibility with urethane adhesives as it may cause bond failure.

                      A:

                      Yes. However because it is 3/8", the number of times is less than 3/4". Screening, light sanding, or Bona refinishing prep can be used to prepare surface for flooring grade water-based urethane.
