About Virginia Mill Works:
Reminiscent of the beautiful, handcrafted floors found in Colonial American homes, Virginia Mill Works Distressed hardwood flooring fuses old-world craftsmanship with modern design and prefinishing. Backed by a 30-year warranty, each floor is a work of art, adding textured beauty to any room in your home.

- 1/2" x 5" prefinished, engineered hardwood
- Distressed hardwood veneer
- Light to medium honey brown, contrasting pattern
- Nail, float or glue installation
- 50 Year Warranty

Installation Tips:
- Nail-down, glue-down, or edge-glue and float.
- 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.
- For a more natural look, mix planks well when installing.

About Distressed Flooring:
Distressing is a technique that gives floors a natural, time-worn appeal. It beautifully replicates the rippled appearance of a vintage, handcrafted floor.

About Engineered:
With plywood engineered products, real wood 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 and temperature change.

**Important Note:
Due to construction differences, this floor should not be assembled together with the traditional plywood layered core SKU# 10012752. Unlike the plywood layered core, this floor has a solid framed core and our testing has shown this framed core provides more stability than the traditional layered core.

      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.

    Can this floor be installed in a camper?
    Asked on 9/22/2016 by Connie from Pleasantville Iowa

    1 answer



      No.Campers create high heat and drop as cold as the outdoor environment. Our floors all have climate restrictions that would impair use in camper trailers or any structure without year-round climate control. I recommend consulting a coach or camper manufacture.

      Protect the natural beauty of your hardwood flooring

      Most major manufacturers of hardwood flooring products, with their advanced aluminum oxide or ceramic finish, provide superior wear; easy, no-wax care; plus superior resistance to staining from all common household products such as coffee, wine, shoe polish, lipstick, mustard, and more. However, a few simple maintenance steps will help protect your investment and keep your hardwood flooring looking like new.
      For cleaning, make sure you:

      ● Use a damp cloth to blot spills and spots as soon as they happen. For tough spots, such as oil, paint, markers, lipstick, ink, tar, or cigarette marks, use mineral spirits on a clean white cloth, then wipe with a damp cloth. Always avoid allowing liquids to stand on your floor.

      ● Sweep, dust, or vacuum the floor regularly with a soft floor attachment (not the beater bar) to prevent accumulation of dirt or grit that can scratch or dull the floor finish.

      ● Occasionally wipe the floor with a damp mop or cloth.

      ● Periodically clean the floor with products safe for urethane finishes

      While cleaning is easy, there are a few things to avoid:

      ● Don't use oil based, wax, polish, or strong ammoniated or abrasive cleaners.

      ● Don't use steel wool or scouring powder.

      ● Don't wash or wet-mop the floor with soap, water, oil-soap detergent, or any other liquid cleaning material. This could cause swelling, warping, delaminating, and joint-line separation, and void the warranty.

      ● Don't use any type of buffing machine.

      ● For spots such as candle wax or chewing gum, harden the spot with ice and then gently scrape with a plastic scraper, such as a credit card. Be careful not to scratch the flooring surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.

      ● Use protective mats. Good quality entry and exit mats will help collect the dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil, asphalt, or driveway sealer that can otherwise be tracked onto your flooring. Do not use petroleum based rubber-or foam-backed plastic mats as they may discolor the flooring. To prevent slippage, use an approved no-slip rug underlayment.
      Use floor protectors on furniture

      Use floor protectors and wide-load-bearing leg bases/rollers to minimize indentations and scratches from heavy objects. As a rule, the heavier the object, the wider the floor protector should be.
      Maintain relative humidity level
      Maintain a normal indoor relative humidity level between 30% - 50% throughout the year to minimize the natural expansion and contraction of wood.

      ● Heating season (Dry under 20%): A humidifier is recommended to prevent excess shrinkage due to low humidity levels. Wood stove and electric heat tend to create very dry conditions.

      ● Non heating season (Wet over 55%): An air conditioner, dehumidifier or periodically turning on your heating system can maintain humidity during the summer months. Avoid excessive exposure to water during periods of inclement weather.
      Watch your feet
      Don't walk on your flooring with stiletto-style heels, spiked golf shoes, or cleats. They may cause indentations in your flooring.
      Watch your pet's feet
      Keep pet's nails trimmed to keep them from scratching your flooring.
      Rearrange your rugs and furniture
      Periodically rearranging your area rugs and furniture will allow the flooring to age evenly. UV sunlight will soften the tone of different species of hardwood to varying degrees.

  • Q:

    If there are pieces that are unusable, broken, not milled right, etc, can I get them replaced?

      Only if it above the 5% waste factor which is an industry standard.
      The veneer is a product of nature, thus there will be some variations in grain, patterns, and shade/color from box to box. When ordering flooring 5% - 7% more flooring must be added to allow for cutting and grading allowances. For diagnal installations add 15% more for waste.
       Before installation inspect the flooring for any manufactured defects. Defects on the face of the planks can be avoided by trimming the plank, and the remainder of the plank used, this is expected to minimize waste. Any board deemed unacceptable should simply not be used. If there are concerns with the quality of the product, please stop installation and contact your local retailer.

      You can try!
      Nailing tips
      Tongue fracture and surface dimpling is not a manufacturer defect and can be minimized by; Installing the flooring in proper
      lighting, using the correct nail thickness or gauge, using the recommended shoe adaptor, or changing the height/angle of nail entry.
      1 To further reduce the occurrence of surface dimpling and tongue fracture the use of thinner 18 gage cleat nails is
      recommended especially for harder exotic floors, but is no guarantee to prevent all surface dimples. In addition, many
      installers will sometimes adjust the nailer angle temporarily by applying layers of duct tape to the bottom nailer foot
      Bellawood Solid ® Issued: 10/02/2015 1-800-HARDWOOD
      plate. The use of an over-size base or foot plate to distribute the nailing force is encouraged. If however, surface dimpling
      still occurs, pre-drill and hand nail the flooring using a 3/32" drill bit and 6d steel finish nails. (pic 1) Low profile products
      can be directly glued to the subfloor using our recommended flooring adhesive. (See Glue down section).
      2 Use caution when using staples on exotic flooring. Staples may increase the risk for tongue fracture and surface dimples.
      Do not mix fasteners when nailing. Staples and cleats hold differently when mixed can result in irregular fastening and or
      may allow excessive movement. When face or top nailing, pre-drilling is recommended. Pick areas of the grain or pattern
      that would best hide touch-up fillers.You can find complete installation instructions on the product page by clicking on the installation tab and then clicking on - Installation Guide.
