About Brazilian Koa:
Brazilian Koa, often called Tigerwood, is truly one of the most unique and exotic looking species used in flooring.
Brazilian Koa has a distinct dark orange color with brownish/black striping which is where it gets it's namesake. Brazilian Koa's exotic beauty and durability make it stand out from the crowd and it is an outstanding choice for the discriminating home owner looking for that unique and enviable flooring no other neighbor has.

About Engineered Flooring:
Hardwood veneer layers are stacked on one another, with the grain of the adjacent layers oriented perpendicular to each other.
Because wood expands and contracts in the direction of the grain, one layer stabilizes the next, resulting in a product that is less susceptible to the effects of moisture & temperature change.

Did you know?
An estimated 60-70 million Americans are affected by house dust, which can cause itchy eyes, sneezing, rashes, breathing difficulty and sinus trouble because of trapped pollens and molds in carpets, upholstery and curtains.
Not even frequent vacuuming will eliminate those microscopic troublemakers.
Another good reason to go green with Schön Engineered Floors!

 


QUALITY GUARANTEE: This flooring meets or exceeds rigorous emissions standards such as California CARB.

    Comments about Schön 1/2" x 5" Brazilian Koa Engineered:

    We were looking for wood flooring that was unique. We knew we didn't want a solid-look so this was PERFECT for what we were looking for. We were so excited to see the project come together and are even happier now that the floors have begun to patina. They do darken with age and exposure but it only makes the floors more beautiful. Beware...if you decide to use an area rug, the floors under the rug will be lighter due to lack of light and air exposure.

    Like any wood floor, they do dent and ding if you drop something on them but I haven't noticed any scratches or dings from normal wear.

    We have gotten so many compliments on our floors from, "I love your floors" to "I wish I would have installed those instead of oak!" When people come to our door, they notice the floors right away and make positive comments on them! We couldn't be happier with our choice of flooring and vendor.

    We had the floors installed by a restoration company since our floors needed to be replaced due to water damage (insurance covered it).

    Comments about Schön 1/2" x 5" Brazilian Koa Engineered:

    the wood looks great, install took just one day. Only gripe is that a few boxes were way short on longer sized planks so there was an over-abundance of short planks that made mixing board sizes a little difficult. Also, the wood seems pretty durable, but i do already have a few scratches and one pretty deep gouge from a power drill tipping over. They are, however, a breeze to clean.

      The finished product as it appears in our condo met the highest expectations of both my wife and myself. We just love the rich, bold contrast in the color shades that appear in the Brazilian Koa wood.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Additionally, we were truly fortunate to have gotten Chaz and his partner as installers (out of the Orlando, FL outlet). They take great personal pride in the quality of their work and were extremely accommodating to our needs.

          Comments about Schön 1/2" x 5" Brazilian Koa Engineered:

          This wood is installed in the entire downstairs of our home. Because it is engineered wood, must be careful not to let water sit on it. I have solved this problem by putting runners in the kitchen below the sink and dishwasher.
          Love, love, love the variation of colors in this product. Almost reminds me of "reclaimed wood". Have put felt fabric on the bottom of chairs, tables, etc. to keep from scratching the floors (can buy this at Costco). However because of the color variations, scratches won't be as noticeable.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was prompt and product arrived in good condition.

          The only problem I had with customer service was they wanted us to buy their glue (an additional $3,000 for 1500 square foot). I got the wood during a sale so realized they were making up for the cost of the wood by charging way too much for the glue. I was told that the warranty would not apply if I didn't use this specific glue. After researching this I found that lumber liquidators doesn't warrany the wood but the manufacturer does. So, I used a professional installer who supplied the glue at a much cheaper cost.

              This is my 3rd flooring purchase from LL. Everything I have boaght from them has met my expectations, and has held up well over the years. The only place you need to go if you want a wood floor.

              Service and delivery comments:

              First of all, I love the fact that LL doesn't do any high-pressure upselling. You can choose whatever you want, and you won't be made to feel bad if you choose the less expensive product.
              On my first two purchases, I did the install myself (no sweat - they provide all the guidance you need). On this purchase, I used the LL-affiliated installers. They came when they said they would, did a meticulous job, and I'm a happy camper.

                  Do you need underlayment with this product? My sub-flooring is plywood?

                    A:

                    If you tongue and groove glue float this flooring use a floating floor underlayment. Approved underlayments (Bellawood Premium, Eco Silent Sound, Quiet Walk, Dream Home Cork, and other similar underlayments).

                    If you intend to nail this flooring use 15lb felt paper or white silicone paper. If you require sound insulating properties use Bellawood Premium or Eco Silent Sound.

                    Gluedown installation that requires insulation use Bellawood Premium, Eco Silent Sound, or Insulayment.

                  Can this flooring be refinished or restained? I have had this in my family room for 6 years and it's lost all it's color in any area that was exposed to light.

                    A:

                    All wood species can change color over time due to oxidation or when exposed to light. In some species, the change can be more dramatic and may darken in color over time, while others tend to lighten. Currently there is no known value set for Patina or color change of a species so contractors and or customers should be aware of this normal condition. The patina process is unrelated to the urethane finishes.
                    Full refinishing will take slightly under a 1/32” off the veneer of the wood flooring. The thickness of the veneer and how much wear and dents a floor has will determine how many times it can be refinished.
                    Engineered flooring with a 1/8” wear layer or more will be able to be refinished at least once. If the engineered product has a 1/16” wear layer a professional sander may be able to refinish it, but many won’t take the chance in case they make a mistake and take too much off the wear layer. We recommend that hardwood floor refinishing be done by a professional and if your not sure if you can refinish your flooring have professional sand and finish expert come to your home and evaluate your flooring.

                    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.

                  I was told by a LL sales associate that the brazilian koa has an aluminum oxide surface, and that all cleaners are not compatible with this surface. Can you tell me what kind of cleaners to avoid? And what kind of cleaners are compatible with the Al Oxide surface (other than your in-store brand)?

                  I did not see anything on the spec sheet online about the Al Oxide finish and the recommendations.

                  thanks....

                    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. In addition, we do not recommend using steamers or wet-jet cleaning systems for hardwood because spraying can collect moisture in between board edges. The use of these products is at your own risk.

                  What is an AC rating

                    A:

                    What is an AC rating?
                    The common term used to denote the durability level of laminate flooring is its, Abrasion Criteria or “AC” rating. AC ratings are an abbreviated representation of a laminate’s overlay film resistance to abrasion, impact, stains and cigarette burns. The ratings also indicate that the product has been tested for the effects of furniture legs, castors, and swelling along its edges. When a laminate flooring product has a rating, then it has passed all of the test criteria. Failing just one test will disqualify a product.
                    The AC rating levels are designated AC1 through AC5. Each is represented by international pictographs reflecting the product’s application and durability. The primary application is divided into two groups: residential and commercial. Each group is further divided into traffic intensity levels: moderate, general, or heavy. An AC1 rating which is the lowest should only be used in light-traffic area’s. At the other end of the scale is AC5 which is produced for the commercial market and for use in very high-traffic area’s. A laminate flooring rating of AC2 or AC3 is found on flooring tailored to the domestic and residential market. As can be seen, Laminate ratings are beneficial to customers for product comparison shopping. If you are tempted by some very cheap laminate flooring, be cautious, you may find that it hasn't received any type of AC rating indicating it failed to meet the minimum requirements. During product testing, if it fails on just one single test, then approval for that laminate flooring rating is denied. For residential use, a rating of AC3 is perfectly adequate. Typically the higher the laminate flooring rating, the higher the price may be. The test devised for abrasion resistance. Thank you for your inquiry.
