I bought 24 boxes of beautiful Bellawood Santos Mahogoney hardwood flooring. However, the installer we chose says the wood is bowed and cupping. Even I can see visible defects in the wood. The distributor we bought the wood from says that all 3/8" wood has some natural bowing, and that it requires muscle manipulation on the part of the installer, and the use of "straps."
Who out there agrees with this? Or do you think we got a bad batch of Bellawood?
I know that Bob Villa is a spokesman for Bellawood, so maybe there are some other Bellawood customers out there.
(p.s. the concrete passed the dryness test, and the wood was allowed to acclimate inside our air conditioned living room for three weeks prior to installation.)
