Builder's Pride- 3/4" x 3-1/4" Natural Hickory Prefinished Solid Flooring- 25 Year Warranty

In addition to being the hardest of the North American flooring choices, Hickory is also a beautiful option for home or business owners seeking a room with dramatic appeal.
This hardwood displays a breath taking variety of brown tones and dramatic grain patterns that make it just as appropriate in a contemporary high rise loft as it is in a log cabin.
In Eastern North America, it survived the catastrophic changes of the Glacial Epoch, some 50 million years ago. Thus, it is the first strictly American hardwood species. Westward trekking pioneers made hickory a prerequisite for their wagon wheels.  The same durability and strength that made hickory the choice for axe handles and other tools in the past now make it an excellent choice for high traffic areas.

What is "Natural Grade"?
Natural Grade flooring contains distinct variations in coloration and varying wood characters. 
It will also have a slightly longer average plank length compared to Rustic grade products but shorter length than our select grade product.

Don't forget the molding and stair treads!

    Best Uses

    • Bedroom

    Comments about Builder's Pride 3/4" x 3-1/4" Hickory:

    I love the floor when all was said and done. The initial board set was the biggest issue since I just happened to pick a warped long piece and it took a while to find one long enough to start the room that wasn't warped. It was 200 sq. ft. of bedroom. I had some help for about 2/3's the install then the rest was on my own. Just over 2 days to install and a lot of manipulating pieces because of some of the warped boards. Some boxes had several long pieces, some boxes were quite a few short pieces. So opening more than three boxes to mix and match is recommended. Didn't mind the short pieces because of the size of the room. Overall - a fun and frustrating project.

      Comments about Builder's Pride 3/4" x 3-1/4" Hickory:

      This hickory flooring is beautiful. I installed in kitchen and had a hard time determining which ones to use under the cabinets! Only trouble is that there were several of the longer pieces that were too warped to use as a whole. I was able to salvage most pieces by cutting into shorter lengths. Overall, it is a great product that my wife wants to use in one of the bedrooms.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The delivery on this product was much faster than expected. I was told it would arrive in 10 - 14 days, but I was able to pick it up in 7 days.

        Comments about Builder's Pride 3/4" x 3-1/4" Hickory:

        We plan to do the entire first floor over time, but thought we'd cut our teeth on the downstairs office first. 14' x 10' room with a closet. With a total crew of 5 people, we were able to get it done in one weekend. Came out looking great! Variations in the colors kinda threw me when all was said and done, but the more we're living with it, the more it's appealing to me.

        We're first-timers,so I'd suggest doing some homework to see what tools you'll need, and suggestions on how to proceed. Once we have this paid off, we plan on tackling other larger rooms.

        Comments about Builder's Pride 3/4" x 3-1/4" Hickory:

        The color variations are beautiful but do pose a challenge trying to blend them more naturally than splotches of almost white to almost black. It requires time to do this. One needs to figure this factor into install price/cost.

          Comments about Builder's Pride 3/4" x 3-1/4" Hickory:

          We found out that the mill has slight variations in the width of their product. Care must be taken to ensure each row uses the same width board or else you end up with small gaps and misalignment. You can't just grab pieces and install due to the 1/16 to 1/8 inch diffs in the board widths. Seems small but it has an effect. Multiple installers warned me of this issue from wood purchased at Lumber Liquidators but cost was a factor

            Comments about Builder's Pride 3/4" x 3-1/4" Hickory:

            For the most part this product installed easily and looks great.
            Being that it is a natural product, there was quite a bit of variation in color from box to box. The first 7 or 8 boxes I used had more short and light pieces. The rest had more dark long pieces. I was still able to get an even looking floor, but it definitely took some careful planning.
            Probably about 2%-3% of the pieces were unusable. Some were cracked, had rough edges, or were warped too badly. Some had marks, like a permanent marker, that appeared to be under the finish. These defects are what made this a 4-star product instead of a 5-star product.

              We had the floor installed in our Living Room, Hallway, and Kitchen. I love it. I have darker furniture in the living room and it goes really good, I also have light kitchen cabinets and it looks great with it.
              Everyone that has seen it, loves it. I have dropped a few things on it already and it did make a mark, but not very obvious. I have 3 small children with some extra that I babysit and they love riding their cars and it left no mark. A few pieces split when it was installed, but overall we did not waste much.

              • Q:

                Can this product be istalled on an above grade concrete slab using Elastilon Self Adhesive Underlayment? If so, will it void the flooring warranty?

                  A:

                  This is a solid 3/4" product designed to be nailed to a wood substrate.
                  But can be installed over concrete using our Elastilon underlayment.
                  What you should know about Elastilon Strong
                  An Elastilon-backed wood floor is much faster to install than traditional nail or glue-down methods.
                  Elastilon Strong can be installed on new concrete floors, handling up to 3.9% moisture content. A vapour barrier of at least 6 mil PE should be used below grade and on newly poured concrete above grade where the moisture content is above 3.9%.
                  Laid down with a 5/8” (15 mm) expansion gap, Elastilon Strong creates a dynamic, floating floor that expands or contracts naturally with the hardwood.
                  Elastilon Strong has no odor and is free of volatile materials.
                  Elastilon Strong gives cushioned comfort.
                  1/8” (3 mm) thick Elastilon Strong has ratings of IIC 62 and STC 54.
                  Thermal resistance: R _ 0,15 (m K) / W
                  Elastilon Strong carries a 70-year limited warranty.
                  Thank you for your inquiry.

                  Unfortunately not.
                  There is not a prefinished flooring brand on the market that can guarantee against scratching.

                  This can be installed in mixed widths but it is important to make sure that the flooring is from the same mill when ordered.

                If I am going to use 16gauge 2 inch L cleats to nail down 3/4 by 3 1/4 hickery flooring....why do I need to leave a gap of 1/2 to 3/4 around the edge.....not a floating floor and I already have floor molding down.... a thin 1/2 bottom round would be ok....meaning leaving at most 1/4 inch gap

                  To allow for expansion. All wood flooring will expand and contract throughout the seasons of the year based on temperature and relative humidity. Nailing it down does not stop this movement.
                  Lumber Liquidators denies any responsibility for problems arising from job site failures, environmental or moisture issues, inappropriate or improperly prepared subfloors, poor installations and improper tool usage.
                  GENERAL INFORMATION (all installations)
                  • Customers are advised to be home during the installation for consultation.
                  • Customer and installer should discuss installation and layout to maximize satisfaction.
                  • Inspect flooring during installation.
                  • Maintain proper perimeter expansion gap.
                  • Trim bottom of the door frame with handsaw to insert boards underneath.
                  • Avoid board grouping. Board sizes should be intermingled.
                  • Floor should be installed from several cartons at the same time to ensure good color, shade and appearance.
                  • Save a box of flooring for use in future repairs.
                  • After installation, do not fully cover the new installation with plastic or paper. Moisture or board discoloration issues may result.
                  • Because jobsite conditions can be dry today and wet tomorrow the use of moisture barriers are recommended.
