Q:I would like to install this over an above grade concrete slab using elastilon. Are the short ends grooved? From what I understand, the short ends need to be glued and if they aren't grooved, the product isn't compatible with an installation using elastilon. Also, am I able to sand and finish this floor if installed in this manner? Thanks.
A:Yes this flooring is end-matched (tongue and grooved).
Q:This product says "square edge" rather than tongue and groove...how does that affect installation? I don't see how you can blind nail it without the tongue.
A:R.L. Colston-3/4" x 2-1/4 Hickory Unfinished has a tongue and groove profile. The "Square Edge" refers to the top edge treatment, for example most pre-finished flooring has a beveled edge.
Q:Is it a good idea to install hickory in a kitchen area? If so, what sort of finish works best? I do not want to change the color in any way but would like something that would resist water, pets and children.
A:Unfinished Hickory is fine in a kitchen however the finish you choose will determine how well it holds up. Our pre-finished hickory will work well. Today's hardwood finishes are most durable and are applied in a quality controlled environment. We offer several pre-finish coatings, whereas most site-finished floors -sanded and finished at the job site- would only have two or three coats applied, then these must be air dried.
Q:How much does it cost to sand and stain once the product has been installed?
A:Our focus at Lumber Liquidators is to provide you with fantastic flooring at low prices! Although Lumber Liquidators does not have measure people or our own in-house installers we make planning your installation easy and it can be arranged in several convenient ways.
Q:How do I care for this product, ie cleaning. How often should I refinish this product.
A:This is an unfinished wood product and will need to be sanded and finished after installation.
Q:Is this product FSC certified?
A:Lumber Liquidators is not FSC certified, but many of the vendors we get our products from are FSC certified.
