With a variety of 12mm V groove laminate options, from a high gloss to a warm low gloss finish, and with deep, warm to medium hues, this spectacular flooring makes a stunning floor!
St. James offers a regal alternative. The V groove makes it a snap to install and the random lengths give your floors a real wood look and feel.
At 12mm, the St. James Collection is very durable and comes with a 30 year warranty!

Quick Installation Tips:
- Store flooring flat for 48 hours in its original packaging at room temperature.
- Must be installed over a clean, stable, flat, smooth, and dry surface.
- Moisture barrier is required for installations over concrete.
- Make sure the panels are mixed sufficiently when you install them so that you do not end up with too many identical, light or dark panels next to each other.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO USE ADDITIONAL PADDING:
Laminates having pre-attached padding can also be installed over an underlayment. When doing so, Lumber Liquidators recommends the use of Bellawood Platinum, Bellawood Premium, Quiet Walk or the Eco Silent Sound underlayment. These quality underlayments offer best joint/seam support while ensuring superior thermal sound reduction qualities, these properties are highly recommended for use with condominium associations, project planners and building specifiers.

St. James Collection's Advantages:
- No glue and no nails needed
- Easy Click Installation
- Moisture resistant board
- 3mm (1/8") pre-glued underlayment included

Looks great for price!

By Brooke

from Jacksonville, FL

Pros

  • looks nice, attached pad

Cons

  • Attracts dust, shiny

Best Uses

    I wanted to put wood/laminate in my master bedroom because my dogs were ruining my carpet. So, I was looking for inexpensive first. I have hardwood in the living areas, but didn't want to spend the money to put that in the bedroom. So, this Brazilian Koa laminate was the perfect solution! It looks great and definitely looks more expensive than it was. However, it's harder to keep clean than my hardwood and is very loud when you walk on it (even with the pad). All in all, I am very happy with it, though. It looks good and is easier than carpet.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Installation team was wonderful, quick, and great with communication!

    Cons

    • Easy To See Dirt
    • Harder Installation
    • Scratched Too Easily

    Best Uses

    • Less Walked On Areas

    One of the harder laminates to install - lots of hammering. Installed in 2 bedrooms, hall & living room. Shows dirt & smudges very easily. Have to keep cleaning to look nice. Doesn't stand up to even very minor spills.

    Beautiful flooring at a great rate

    By JD

    from Missouri

    Pros

      Cons

        Best Uses

          It was very easy to work with. We installed this flooring ourselves with no prior experience. I didaje it a little more difficult on myself installing it at a 45 throughout the house but it turned out absolutely beautiful. The high gloss does show dust pretty bad so it is going to drive my wife nuts. We did rip down some 1/4 plywood 3/4 wide to install under the transition strips. The transition strips that goes with this flooring is not as thick as the flooring and to keep it from from rolling we put the plywood under neath the metal strips and screwed it down. Then when the transition strips were smacked in to place it secured the flooring and adjacent carpet very nicely.

          Difficult to install

          By Grandpa and Grandma Miller

          from Clermont, Florida

          Pros

          • Beautiful floor

          Cons

          • Hard to install

          Best Uses

            My husband is a contractor/home builder and had a difficult time installing this laminate. It was our 3rd choice as the store did not have enough of our first two choices. It's a beautiful floor but if I had paid attention to the fact that it is high gloss, I wouldn't have settled for it as it does show dirt/dust. Overall, we get compliments on the floor and it is stunning.

            love this flooring

            By De

            from Greene, Me

            Pros

            • It Was Easy To Work With

            Cons

              Best Uses

                We are redoing our whole home with it with the exception of the bathrooms. We were able to get three rooms and the hallway in 3 days. We had virtually no waste at all with this product. The colors are great, and the product is easy to install.

                Service and delivery comments:

                We ordered the flooring in Maine to pick up in Florida and it was ready for pick up even before the projected date.
                Our product was in great condition.

                      The floor looks great. I have no complaints. We didn't install it ourselves so I can't give any input there. I am anxious to see how well it holds up to the kiddos.

                                            While these boards come with pre-attached underlayment you say that it is ok to lay additional underlayment. I am reading from many people that this shouldn't be done as the extra padding will cause the joints in the floor to flex more and weaken the tongues causing eventual board separation. I this true? If not and it is indeed safe to lay down the extra padding what advantage would that have? Will it further dampen the sound or make the floor more pleasant to walk on?

                                            Thank you

                                            The floors I installed appear to have a uniform wax coating on all boards. I don't know if this was from the manufacturer or from my installer (perhaps cleaning the floors with a product that created this coating). I have been able to remove some of the coating using a plain towel and lots of elbow grease but this would take days and days of full-time effort to clear the whole floor. What would be the best way to remove the wax?

                                            Can this floor be installed in the basement? Is it waterproof?

                                              Yes this product can be installed in a basement. This product is water resistant but not water proof. Thank you for your inquiry

                                            Is there any way to fix edge-cupping? Our dog loves to drink water on the go and I believe has left small water pockets on the wood when we were home. We have started to see edge-cupping.

                                              That is water damaged and should be replaced. You can replace only the effected boards. Type "replacement" here for details - http://www.lumberliquidators.com/ll/flooring/Flooring101

                                              Use a throw rug with proper backing to protect your flooring under the dogs bowls.

                                            Before installing our floor what is the maximum height recommended if you have an uneven floor to know if we should level it out first? We may also install the noise padding which we thought would help with the uneven floor.

                                              Minor chip or scratch damage to a laminate plank can be repaired with laminate repair kits and color-matched silicon/latex fillers. If the damaged area is larger than ½” of an inch, a professional can replace an entire plank.
