Handscraped appearance and texture... Just like Hardwood flooring!


Kensington Manor by Dream Home - 12mm Golden Teak Laminate Flooring - 30 Year Warranty

Kensington Manor is a premium 12mm laminate + 3mm pre-glued underlayment product line. What is unique is that most of the line has a handscraped finish appearance. This is not simply in the look, but also in the actual texture!
The combination of these 2 characteristics gives them a beautiful rustic feel!
Also, the V-groove and pre-glued 3mm underlayment will make your installation process quick and easy.

Quick Installation Tips:
- 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 recommended for installations over concrete.
- Make sure the panels are mixed sufficiently when you install them so that you do not end up with too many identical, light or dark panels next to each other.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO USE ADDITIONAL PADDING:
Laminates having pre-attached padding can be installed over an underlayment. When doing so, Lumber Liquidators recommends the use of our Bellawood Premium underlayment or ECO Silent Sound underlayment. These quality underlayments will best support the joints while ensuring superior thermal sound reduction qualities and are highly recommended for use with condominium associations, project planners and building specifiers.

Kensington Manor Flooring Advantages:
- No glue and no nails needed
- Easy Click Installation
- Moisture resistant board
- Thickness: 12mm + 3mm (1/8") pre-glued underlayment
- AC Rating: 3  
- 30 Year Warranty

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.)

    • Living Room

    We used this product to re-do flooring in my Mom's house earlier this year. We installed over 1,000 sq. ft. It looked great - so great that we decided to install around 700 sq. ft. in our home - in the great room. It's a change from the carpet we had previously, but it is a nice change...very warm looking - and should hold up better than the carpet did with our two Labradors.

          Pros

          • Fairly easy to install
          • Great Value
          • Looks good
          • Relatively easy to instal

          Cons

          • Interlocking Feature
          • Laminate Top Poor Quality

          Best Uses

            Put this floor down in my entire first floor - living room, family room, kitchen. Approx 700 sq ft. Fairly easy to install, even for a novice like myself. Would definitely recommend a good table saw at minimum, but nice jig saw and circular saw would be great as well.

            The finished/laminated portion is a bit touchy, and had numerous corners "flake off" and expose the particle board underneath, after making simple cuts or just by tapping the board into place. So be VERY careful when cutting/installing. The result has left a few boards that were already installed that are scuffed/chipped, but are easily covered up by a marking pen. Just nervous this problem will grow over time as pets/people drag feet across the floor.

            The interlocking feature doesn't seem to be the best, as certain boards have shifted slightly out of place, and it's been 2 weeks since floor is complete. Hoping that it's just temperature/humidity causing the boards to shift ever-so slightly, but we'll see after winter and temps change for spring.

            But overall, to the untrained eye, floor looks great. I tend to nitpick and be very specific when working on projects. Have received numerous compliments from visitors, all of whom think it's hardwood at first glance. For the price and money saved by self installing, we're very satisfied.

            • Edges Chipped

            Best Uses

              The first boxes I bought were great. They were easy to install and look great. I ended up having to go back for a few more boxes but they had changed manufacturers. These ones were not as good a quality as the first boxes. They would not click together easily, some not at all. I tried to give them a tap with the mallet and the edges would chip even when using the tool. Good think this box was for my closet. There is spaces between the boards and lots of chips. I would recommend they go back to the original manufacturer. The four star rating is for the original boxes that I bought. I would give the last few boxes a -1,

              Easier than some, harder than others.

              By Clint

                Cons

                  Best Uses

                    Putting this stuff together isn't too bad, though you must pay attention to detail and be sure to tighten everything up with the tapping block before moving up to the next board. This is critical because you'll have a problem if you get through with the room and then go back to find you didn't lock things together in the middle of the floor. Go back and check frequently to make sure nothing loosened up, too, 'cause it can happen especially when you get a stubborn spot that has required some extra "tapping."

                    Use the spacer blocks on the end of the lines and ensure you have your clearance before moving to the next row. You can use a small pry bar to "click" the pieces together rather than the tapping bar/block under many situations. Also, when against a wall, a small flat bar can be very handy pushing things together (the flat pry bar I'm referring to is one that is often used to pull base board off a wall--it's a small pry bar with a wide, flat blade on it).

                    Though videos and instruction manuals say you need to start from one end or another, we found you can go from either direction if you pay attention to the locking process (that is, you can go from left-to-right or right-to-left with equal success). Remember this so you can take advantage of closet doorways and other openings as they occur to put the floor together.

                    This floor requires some patience, but has a nice finish when done.

                                      It took a full weekend to install this floor. What I found to be very frustrating was once the pieces were firmly locked, they would later open up slightly. There a few minors gaps that make my flooring look lousy. Defitnely dissapointed becase a busted my butt all weekend on this floor. Also, the corners chipped rather easy, I had to do stain touch ups to make everything blend in.

                                                      A:

                                                      Our wood floors are manufactured for maximum durability, easy maintenance and finished with a high quality aluminum oxide water base urethane UV cured finish. This step protects the wood and helps keep the flooring looking beautiful longer. While highly durable, the finish is NOT considered indestructible. However, by observing a few precautions like setting up a regular cleaning routine and simple maintenance program to protect the finish, you can expect years of performance and beauty from your wood floor. All wood floors can show signs of wear over time. There are many factors that can affect the amount of wear. These include the size and lifestyle of your family and product location.
                                                      The following cleaning principles are recommended for all of our products -Hardwood, Laminates, Corks, Bamboo and other Exotics. Outlined are examples of the reasonable and necessary maintenance to be performed; this is only intended to be a basic list;
                                                      • Immediately after installation, be certain that the flooring is completely cleaned and dry as described below. If you must protect the flooring from traffic, use only “craft” paper, brown, red or white, this will allow the flooring to “breathe”. Do not fully cover the flooring. NEVER lay plastic of any kind or any other non-porous material over the flooring as this can trap moisture, harm the flooring or fade the finish.
                                                      • Sweep or vacuum regularly, since built-up dirt, grit and sand can damage the surface of the wood. If using a vacuum, use a soft brush attachment -NOT A BEATER BAR ATTACHMENT. Be certain the wheels of the vacuum are clean and do not damage the finish. When using a broom be certain that bristles are soft. You can also use a dry mop.
                                                      • Because of the myriad of cleaning products available and methods of each application, Lumber Liquidators cannot endorse or oversee the use of any Brand Name of floor cleaner. We do recommend cleaning products safe for urethane finishes such as our Bellawood floor cleaner.
                                                      • The use of a changeable terry cloth type system to clean the floor is highly recommended; apply cleaning solution to the terry cloth not the floor.
                                                      • NEVER use oil soaps, liquid, or paste wax products or other household cleaners that contain lemon oil, Tung oil, silicone, or ammonia on pre-finished flooring. The use of these products will harm the long-term performance and appearance of your floor and may affect future re-coating. (Damages caused by non-recommended cleaning products are not covered by warranties). NOTE: This also includes the use of vinegar and water solutions as water can damage wood. Vinegar is an acidic element that can have an oxidizing, caustic effect on the finish.
                                                      • In an effort to clean hardwood floors, many have experimented with a variety of cleaners on the market and end up with a new problem. “How to remove the build-up of cleaning products revealing the original surface"? If this is the case with you, we recommend consulting with a professional cleaner local to your area because they can best see the details involved and make the most accurate recommendations. If you choose to remove the layers of build-up yourself, use cotton rags instead of a mop to control the amount of liquid used.
                                                      • NEVER wet-mop, damp-mop, swab or flood your floor with water or any other product. Moisture can seep into the seams causing edge-cupping damage. Urethane floors do not require wet mopping. Natural floors are water resistant, not water proof. Remove all spills promptly using a soft, slightly damp cloth
                                                      • STEAM CLEANERS OR WET-JET swiffer; Lumber Liquidators does not recommend "Water brooms" "Wet-Jet Swiffers or steamer type cleaners on laminates, corks or hardwood floors. Although steamers may work well cleaning OTHER types of hard surface flooring, the 130° to 240° heated steam vapor can ruin wood or urethane finish resulting in warped or cupped flooring. Water and wood do not mix well, especially steam. Use these products at your own risk.
                                                      • Do place protective mats at entry doors to keep dirt, grit, sand and moisture from being track in from the outside.
                                                      • Do use area rugs in heavily traveled areas and pivot points (e.g., stair landings, room entries, etc.), especially if you have a large family or indoor pets.
                                                      • When using area rugs, use a rug pad with a felt, plant or PVC based backing. DO NOT use area rugs with a petroleum based rubber backing (typically black) as this can cause permanent chemical staining/etching of the floor finish.
                                                      • Take reasonable precautions; use a dolly and protective sheets of plywood when moving heavy objects such as furniture and appliances.
                                                      • Place protective pads beneath furniture legs and feet to reduce scratches and dents. Check and replace wore pads regularly.
                                                      • Keep pet’s nails trimmed, and paws clean and free of dirt, gravel, grease, oil, and stains.
                                                      • Scratches, dents and cupping are site related, not considered a manufactured defect.

We recommend putting 6 mil poly down for a vapor barrier and then an approved underlayment. Moisture can be an issue for any floor you want your relative humidity between 30%-50% and your temperature between 60 -80 degrees.

                                                    I am confused on whether to add an additional pad to my laminate. On the opening information on my laminate it suggests the Bellawood pad under my laminate which has a thick pad already. However, I have read else where that this weakens the joints after a period of time.

                                                      The Bellawood underlayment is firm enough to support a laminate with attached padding.

                                                      Generally you would cut off the overlapping stair nose and then install laminate nosing and flooring. However, laminate flooring and nosing isn't a great idea for stairs, fine for one or two steps but we caution the use of it on an entire staircase. People do it but it can be unsafe. Check your local building codes. Hardwood flooring and nosing works great, when laminate IS used you must fully glue with100% urethane adhesive without the use of padding, padding attached laminate must have paddling scraped off
