Virginia Mill Works Co.- 1/2" x 5" Somerton Prefinished Handscraped Engineered Flooring- 30 Year Warranty

Handcrafted plank by plank, the French bleed is done the traditional way by rubbing the stain on the plank edge.
A beautiful look reproducing the working technique of the craftsmen of bygone times.

Colonial American homes were built with wooden floors that were sawn using basic hand-held tools. The hand-crafted workmanship that went into those floors can be found in Virginia Mill Works handscraped floors.
 
About Handscraped Flooring:
Handscraped or distressed hardwood floors have a natural worn appearance. They look like floors from the days when floors were finished by hand.

About Engineered:
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.

Don't forget the molding and stair treads!

Great Floor

By new floor owner

from Orlando, Fl

Verified Reviewer

Pros

    Cons

      Best Uses

        This is a great looking floor! I had it installed professionally. Make sure your installer uses extra nails (beyond the recommended). The fewer number of nails per ft, the floor will creak when walked on. Once more nails were added, this went away. It does need to be dusted often but it looks great.

        By Chris

        from Indianapolis, IN

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Board Length Variation
        • Ease of installation
        • Final Look
        • price

        Cons

        • If Floated Can Be Flimsy
        • Long Pieces Can Warp

        Best Uses

        • Bedroom
        • Dining room
        • Family Room
        • Living Room
        • Medium To High Traffic

        I purchased this floor because I wanted something nicer than laminate but something that wasn't as easy to scratch as hardwood. I have a young son and he gives the floor quite a work out- which is why I went with handscraped. This floor looks very rich and I think it will be great for resale down the road. I chose to float this floor over my plywood subfloor by using wood glue for the tongue and grooves. This was the easiest and quickest way to install the product as I was doing this myself. All said, this took about 5 hours to install in our dining room- mainly due to a few tricky cuts I had to make around some of the railings/stairs on one side of the floor. Once these cuts were done the installation was a breeze- mostly because there are about 8-10 different precut widths in the boxes which really helped with staggering the joints and making the floor look professionally done. If i could do it over again, I would probably have nailed down the floor since my subfloor had a few high/low spots which translates to a little movement in some areas when walking on the floor. Can't beat the look and durability for the price though- have had this a little over 2 month and with my son riding his cars and whatnot it has held up wonderfully.

        beautiful, but quality average

        By Jean

        from houston, Tx

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • BEAUTIFUL
        • Easy To Install

        Cons

        • Better Mix Of Long Shor
        • Need More Shorter Pieces
        • Some Pieces Are Too Long
        • Too Much Warping

        Best Uses

          Loved the final look of the wood on the floor. Lots of compliments.
          The only downside, was that we left the wood sitting in the boxes for a couple of days to let it adjust to the room temp and it ended up giving us quite a few warping pieces.
          Also, if would be nice to have less of the long pieces and more of the shorter ones (especially with the warping issue)

          Georgeous and easy maintenance

          By ShannonU

          from Dallas ,Tx

          Verified Reviewer

          I have news for everyone. All wood floors can possibly scratch. BUT I will say I have owned numerous brands and types in my previous homes and this is not an "easy" floor to scratch.
          I did scratch it, but it was because I dragged something with a nail sticking out of the bottom of it. Duh to me. The good news is - since it is a distressed floor and does NOT have a glossy finish, it's super easy to hide the scratch.
          I have a variety of tools I use to fix scratches in my floors and furniture. Brown sharpie's, brown paint pens and wood stain pens.
          I'd say the brown sharpie worked best on this.
          In the 6 months I've had it, I've only had that one scratch, though.
          We do have kids and pets, and this is in a fairly high traffic area, so I am very satisfied with this floor.

          from AMERICAN CANYON, CA

          Verified Reviewer

          I love this wood and everyone who sees it, thinks I spent way more than I actually did. It looks rich. The handscrapped look is great too if you have dogs and kids...the nics don't stress you because there are already some natural ones and everything blends in, specially after you use a stain pen on the news ones...lol. There is one thing that might bug you at first: because it's distressed, the pieces will be uneven at seams and sometimes you will see some non staind wood peeking out, specially when sunlight hits wood. I started trying to stain it with the pen but now I just let it go! But the product is beautiful and my installer loved it too!

          Great Floor

          By Happy Customer

          from Arizona

          Pros

          • Beautiful floor
          • Looks Great On Stairs
          • Nice color

          Cons

          • Scratches

          Best Uses

          • Hallways
          • Rooms
          • Stairs

          We installed this floor in our bedrooms, hallway and stairs. It looks beautiful!! It is a little darker than I was expecting. It shows some dust and dirt but is easy to keep clean with a dry mop. We ended up with a few scratches when we moved our furniture but it does not show much because of the handscraped look. During the installation we noticed some very distressed looking boards and we had our installer remove those. The end product is wonderful and we are very happy with our new floors.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The service at LL was awesome! The service people were very friendly and helped us out every step of the way.

          This floor looks great and on sale is a fair price. The only drawback is you have to keep it really clean to maintain that great look.

              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 factors that influence wear and durability.
              Pets need a rug for drool and wet coats. Be sure to keep all toys, bones, etc. that have hard corners away from the floor. Also, be sure to trim your pet’s nails regularly
              to avoid deep scratches.

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              Wood flooring can be installed through out the home, but there are concerns about installation in bathrooms. Bathrooms are areas of high moisture. With full baths there are concerns with water spills, high humidity due to steamy showers, and toilet over flows. Elevated moisture in a full bath can create finish issues, board warping, and buckling. When installing in these areas extreme caution is advised and it is recommended to choose wood flooring with high stability. Make sure you have good air flow and use mats to absorb moisture when coming out of the tube or shower. Many wood floors will not be warranted in a bathroom application. An alternative would be our Tranquility vinyl Click flooring. The Tranquility vinyl click flooring looks like real wood, but will not be affected by moisture like wood floors.

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              Being a stained floor you should have better color-fastness than natural woods. A certain amount of UV light fade can happen. Rotating rugs and furniture occasionally is recommended for the first few months to a year.

              A:

              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.

              A:

              You would want to select a transistion that is the same color as either of the floors, depending on if you would like to transition from your bedroom to the hall or the hall to bedroom - most of that is the way the transition is laid so it can be more on the hall side or the bedroom side
