Builder's Pride- 3/4" x 2-1/4" Natural Hickory Prefinished Solid Flooring- 25 Year Warranty

In addition to being the hardest of the North American flooring choices, Hickory is also a beautiful option for home or business owners seeking a room with dramatic appeal.
This hardwood displays a breath taking variety of brown tones and dramatic grain patterns that make it just as appropriate in a contemporary high rise loft as it is in a log cabin.
In Eastern North America, it survived the catastrophic changes of the Glacial Epoch, some 50 million years ago. Thus, it is the first strictly American hardwood species. Westward trekking pioneers made hickory a prerequisite for their wagon wheels.  The same durability and strength that made hickory the choice for axe handles and other tools in the past now make it an excellent choice for high traffic areas.

What is "Natural Grade"?
Natural Grade flooring contains distinct variations in coloration and varying wood characters. 
It will also have a slightly longer average plank length compared to Rustic grade products but shorter length than our select grade product.

Anyone can sell cheap floor. We offer full warranty top brand flooring at low, low prices.
How? We buy direct from the Mill - no middleman. We also don't waste money on fancy stores in high rent districts.
More floor for less money.
Simple and true.

Love it, looks awesome!

By It's Dave!

from Long Island, New York

Verified Reviewer

We did the whole house with it (~1000 sq. ft.). It went in pretty easy (my friend and I were first-timers with flooring) , took awhile though, a couple months of Sundays I guess. Everybody comments on it when they walk in the house. The reaction is almost always the same: They look down and say "Whoa, nice floor. You did this yourself?"

I have to say, wood floor that's all the same color looks boring and drab after you're in a room with this hickory. I was nervous after the first 2 or so rows, thinking it would look bad, but you need at least several rows to see how it all comes together.

There was a slight variation with the 2-1/4" width, some were narrower than others. It was enough so that when we put the next row in you's see a gap if any of the previous row were narrower. We quickly learned to weed the narrower ones out and use them together. There was very little waste overall. I was going to buy 10% extra to account for scrap because that's what I've read you should do. The guy at the Lumber Liquidators counter told me not to, he said that 5% extra would be more than enough even if it was our first time installing, and he was right - I still have some extra. The money he saved me paid for the cheaper Norge hammer they sell, which did the whole house with no problem.

We haven't moved in yet, so I can't speak about wear. But I have put a small scratch and dent here and there by dropping things on it. They hide well, it seems only the person that put them there knows they are there.

Overall I love it, would buy it again, and other floors look boring after being in a room with this.

*edit* - Looks like they only allow 2 pictures. Too bad, I'd like to show off every room. We went into the kitchen and closets too.

Awesome product, awesome price

By Tobey

from New Hampshire

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • BEAUTIFUL
  • Durable
  • Great price
  • Low waste

Cons

    Best Uses

      This wood is beautiful, with the 2 1/4" width and color variations it makes for a stunning floor. If you're installing yourself set aside about twice the time you normally would - when your boards are half the normal width you have twice the nailing, cutting, etc. Also with the color variations and length variations there is a bit of planning needed to stagger joints and not have light and dark spots in your colors throughout the floor.

      In response to some of the other reviews - yes there are slight variations in the millwork, and that's part of the charm of having a true 3/4 solid hardwood floor. No solid hardwood floors are perfect. If you want a mirror smooth floor, buy laminate or engineered. Any 'installer' that complains about this millwork (for under $3.00 a sq/ft) should not be installing hardwood.

      Another note - I put down ~700 sq/ft and only had about a box of waste when done (and ended up returning several boxes). Yes you read that right, I had about 20' of waste. With the skinny width and color variations, you can use boards that are 12" or under on the main floor and they just look like they belong.

      All said, would not have done anything different - awesome product. And it even holds up to my Great Dane throwing bones around and running on it.

      Looks nice, but...

      By Tom

      from Minneapolis, MN

      Verified Reviewer

      The floor was installed by a pro and I will say that the floor looks very nice. Unfortunately, the installer had issues with the milling and how inconsistant the thickness of the wood was. There was significant waste because of that. I wish I could say that the price was "very good" but in this case replace the term "very good" with cheap. Wish we would have spent more on a different brand.

      Very happy with the product

      By Floor snob

      from Sacramento, CA

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Can install in sections

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Throughout the house

        Originally we were going to use an unfinished solid product and have it professionally finished, but the cost of labor seemed to have gone up considerably since we last had it done 2 years back in a previous home. I never thought I would ever use a prefinished product, but it is solid stuff and looks good. Down the line, when it is time, we can have it sanded and refinished and it will look just like a floor that had been installed in a 1940's home. I am so happy that we can install in sections without having to move all the furniture out of the house like we would with unfinished product. It's so much more convenient and less expensive than plan A.

        Changed the room!

        By Happy camper

        from Cromwell CT

        I used this to do a spare bedroom to see if I liked the wood type. It came out awsome. The color variation is excellent. I plan on using this in my family room, dining room, kitchen, and half bath. I will say it takes some extra work to make it all come together. The wood had a lot of things that had to be corrected, so you don't end up with big gaps. This is nail down only and use a high quality gun. They are cheap to rent. It can be time consuming. You get what you pay for. But it did come out great!

        • Straight
        • Stunningly beautiful
        • Very hard wood
        • Very little waste
        • Well Milled

        Cons

        • Special Tools required

        Best Uses

        • ANYWHERE AT HOME
        • BOWLING ALLEYS
        • DANCE FLOORS
        • Focal points
        • High traffic areas

        Installed in the living room, sun room, bedroom and studio. I intend to dance on this floor,so I needed something very durable yet beautiful.
        I got the "natural" grade Builders Pride, which is supposed to be the middle grade as far as price, milling, wastage and overall quality, yet this product surpassed my expectations. It is of excellent overall quality.The finish is perfect for my taste. The 2 1/4 width makes for stronger flooring with fewer warps, and much more contrast and texture.The 2 1/4 width takes more cleats per sq foot, which makes for a very solid floor. The minute differences in hight between each plank results in a rich texture that leaves no doubt that this is solid wood and not a cheaper man-made material. Of course, it takes longer to install than the wider plank, but it also costs less to buy.
        The wood is very hard, so , don't even try to installit without a POWERNAILER and POWERCLEATS.
        About Lumber Liquidators: The service I have received has been high quality. An example;I had bought bamboo originally, and had it for 3 months (still in original package)when I decided to exchange it for the hickory. "No problem " L.L. said. They exchanged it at no cost.They really cultivate a can do attitude. Real pros.

          1. Is it COMPLETELY refinished and ready for installation? I understand it to be "nail down" flooring? We do not have to sand, seal, etc???

          2. You have a simple "glaze" over the natural wood? Nothing heavy?

            A:

            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 factor that influence wear.

        • Q:

          Does this grade of flooring have unfilled deep knot holes? I have seen a couple different lines of flooring at other local stores, and some brands include boards with frequent knot holes - I would estimate at least 1/4" deep, while others either remove such boards or fill the holes so that the surface is smooth and easier to clean.

            A:

            This is a natural grade product; Please see attached discription.
            NATURAL and Better
            ALTERNATE GRADE NAME(S): Also referred to as
            First or Second Grade,
            Millrun or #1 Common

            SUMMARY: Natural Grade flooring contains distinct variations in coloration and varying wood characters. Natural grade flooring will have a slightly longer average plank length compared to Rustic grade products.

            DETAILED: Specific characteristics of Natural grade flooring will vary widely by wood species; however, typically include such things as: minor imperfections in milling; imperfections in face-work which cannot be wholly removed by an ordinary method of sanding; slight variations in angle of end matching; varying wood characteristics such as spots, streaks, slightly open checks, and pin/worm holes; small splits, broken knots or knot holes; and shallow back. Natural grade pre-finished flooring will have a plank face that is free of most finishing imperfections; however, may contain a limited amount of minor blemishes including, but not limited to: light grainy surface/debris, bubbles, streaks, uncoated bevel, finish chipping, dents, or equivalent type characters. When assembled, Natural grade flooring should not exhibit gaps exceeding 0.031”or end/side over-wood(e.g. height variation between adjacent planks) exceeding 0.030”.

            NOTE: This grade description is intended only to provide general characteristics of the identified wood grade, and is not all-inclusive. Specific wood characteristics and acceptance criteria may vary by wood species. A 5% allowance per box is established for pieces exhibiting one or more milling, grading, or finishing defects.

            A:

            Yes but only with Elastilon as your installation system. That or it would require that you build a subfloor or use a thinner 1/2" or less solid hardwood or engineered floor and gluedown (troweled moisture barrier required, always use the same brand adhesive and moisture barrier) Concrete moisture testing required.
