Dear Lumber Liquidators,

One look and it's easy to see why Brazilian Koa is often called Tigerwood. Its distinctive orange coloring and brown/black striping make it one of the most unique and exotic species available on the market today. And its durability is simply outstanding, resulting in a "not-so-everyday" floor that will stand up year after year to life's everyday demands.
We caught up with real Lumber Liquidators' customers who volunteered to discuss their floor shopping, buying and installation experiences. In no way did these customers receive compensation for their kind words. (They're speaking straight from the heart.)

Comments about BELLAWOOD 3/4" x 5" Brazilian Koa Flooring:
I went with solid so there's no doubt on lifetime durability. As advertised the wood darkens 300% but this results in absolute blending of beautiful exotic wood tones.

Q:My house has millstone eco series barely in the kitchen and entry way. I want to do the living room with the same color, but I want to use brazilian koa upstairs. My question is can I use the brazilian koa as frame to the millstone flooring. Like forming a square and then placing the millstone flooring in it. Then go up the stairs with the top of the stair being koa and the kickplate being millstone, in order to tie both upstairs and downstairs together?
A:Please contact Technical and Installation; firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-366-4204
Q:I have two different types of Brazilian Koa. Some of the wood has a paraffin on the wood and some of the wood has no paraffin. I can mix the woods on the same floor?
A:Please call our Tech and Installation Dept. @ (800) 366-4204 for a detailed answer to your question. Thank you for your inquiry.
Q:Is it recomended to glue and nail instead of just nailing?
A:I recommend nailing only, the important thing to consider whith wide plank flooring is the moisture coming from below that causes cupping. When glued and fastened you have no moisture barrier to prevent cupping.
Q:how resistant is Koa to cupping like compared to maple or hickery?
A:According to the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) technical publication C200, "Problems, Causes, and Cures of Hardwood Floors", page 7 (available at www.NWFA.org) cupping occurs across the width of individual pieces of flooring. The edges are high and the center is lowered. This happens when there is either an excess of moisture on the underside of the flooring or when the surface of the wood experiences rapid drying. More subtle cupping can occur when the flooring is not acclimated properly. Excessive moisture can come from a variety of sources including but not limited to concrete subfloor that has not been properly cured, leaking pipes, wet or damp basements, HVAC system not operating, improperly controlled temperature or humidity, etc. Cupping can also occur when conditions result in the surface of the wood dries quickly. In this situation, gaps and/or cracks may result.
Q:I'm concerned about variety of lengths. I know they vary, but what is the range of variation?
A:Our Select products will have random length boards that will be between 12” and 84” with the average length being around 36".
Q:Is it really best NOT to put Bellawood in bathrooms or kitchens, which are typically damp places and dirtier than most other rooms in the house and can often get inadvertently wet with water or spills of various kinds?
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.
Q:how many boxes would i need to do a floor 12 by12
A:You will seven boxes for this job (includes waste factor.
Q:Would you suggest this product to be used in the kitchen area ? How do you think it would hold up to a dogs nails..??? Does the color fade ?? Does this product warp,??
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. All wood species can change color over time due to oxidation or when exposed to light. In some species, the change can be more dramatic and may darken in color over time, while others tend to lighten. Currently there is no known value set for Patina or color change of a species so contractors and or customers should be aware of this normal condition. The patina process is unrelated to the urethane finishes. If the moisture levels in the home are not contrlled it could warp.
Q:Do I need to glue this to a linoleum floor?
A:No you do not..
Q:i have a 150lb Mastiff and am worried that my floor will be easily damage what should i do to prevent this
A:It’s very unfortunate, but scratches can happen with all flooring. Even the hardest species of hardwood flooring can get scratched. In many cases it is just the surface or finish on the flooring that gets scratched which can be repaired with many different scratch repair products. These products can be found at Major Hardware stores and Wood flooring supply companies. If most of the flooring has scratches, a screen and re-coat can be done to restore the finish. If a single board is badly damaged a board replacement can also be done to fix the problem. When you notice a scratch on the floor, find out what caused the scratch and prevent it from happening again before the scratches become a big problem. If sliding furniture is causing scratches, place felt protection under the legs. If your plastic trash can or laundry basket is creating scratches place a cloth rug under them. If your pet is scratching the flooring, use vinyl claw covers over their nails. If your shoes or high heels are the culprit, have a no shoe policy in the home. The best way to stop scratches is to prevent them from happening in the first place.
