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.

    i have existing ceramic tiles in the hallway. Can i install this on top of the tiles with out removing them ? If so is floating the only(best) option ?
    Asked on 3/22/2016 by Ajith the newbie from Edison,NJ

      This can be tongue and groove glue floated over a padded underlayment on flat level tile. Gluedown is also possible when tile is prepared properly, i.e. sealers removed, surface abraded; consult adhesive manufacturer instructions. Also see -

      Engineered Hardwoods and the Janka Scale.
      The Janka scale chart is not to be considered an absolute; it is designed to help people understand which woods are harder than others.
      The Janka Hardness test is done in accordance with ASTM D 1037-7 testing methods. Lumber stocks tested ranges from 1" to 2" thick. (Resulting Janka Hardness Numbers are an average.) It important to note that no testing is done on flooring (but is done on "solid" wood species).
      The Janka hardness test measures the resistance of a type of wood to withstand denting and wear. It measures the force required to embed an 11.28 mm (0.444 in) steel ball into wood to half the ball's diameter. This method leaves an indentation. A common use of Janka hardness ratings is to determine whether a species of wood is suitable for use as flooring.
      Other factors that affect how flooring performs: type of core for engineered flooring like: pine, hdf (high density fiber board), poplar, oak, birch....etc... When choosing an engineered floor (other than the species) consider grain direction and thickness floor or top wear surface of the product, engineered hardwoods with thicker wear layers (more actual hardwood) will offer more resistance to dinging than ones with much thinner wear layers. The hardness ratings should not be the only deciding factor when selecting any hardwood floor.
      The Janka hardness test is done only on solid wood products and does not apply to a veneered flooring product, engineered flooring is not solid wood and only the thin surface veneer has the botanical species on it.

      To restore the original shine of an engineered floor a screen and re-coat may be all that is needed or a complete refinishing. A professional sand and finish expert would have to make the determination on site on which sanding process will be needed or which can be done to restore the floors shine.
      Thank you for your inquiry.
