Lum. Liquidators' Golden Teak flooring (cross-posted in kitchens)

snowyctApril 6, 2012

Has anyone used this flooring? It's a prefinished wood from Lumber Liquidators' Bellawood line. I'm thinking about using it in a kitchen and am interested in the quality and durability over time (particularly since I know LL has gotten some iffy reviews generally). It would be installed by the GC renovating the kitchen. Thanks so much.

You would probably sleep better by choosing another supplier. BR111 offers the same product plus they sell direct. Oh, golden Teak. I wonder what that is? Probably a Tiete Chestnut.

Most often "teak" is cumaru, which can have significant problems as it dries. It's a lovely wood, but you need to address the home humdity climate it will be installed in or you will not be happy with it at all. That means a whole house humidifier in winter, and adequate humidity removing AC (not oversized) for the warmer months.

Gosh, that's why I love this forum. I really appreciate your answers.

I don't think such controlled humidity is for me GreenDesigns - thanks for the warning.

gamountains -- I was afraid of that with LL. BR111 seems terrific though and I think Tiete Chestnut is exactly what I'm looking for. They say it only takes about 3-4 days to ship, which is great (I'm down to the wire). Thanks so much for the recommendation, and to both of you for sharing your knowledge.
