Forum Title: Jatoba (Brazilian Cherry) and wear marks
Dear all, I am just about to order Jatoba engineered flooring with a 6 mm top layer. The company sent me a flawless (of course?) sample - of the oiled full wood version; they make their own engineered floorboards from that. Today I went to an alternate flooring store around the corner and saw engineered Jatoba with pronounced, gray scratches (see attachment). The store owner reckoned that those gray scratches are standard for Jatoba, and become more extreme with time/exposure to sunlight. Anyone noticed this? The alternative proposed is Cumaru, but narrower, shorter, more expensive.... Best, James

Yours is oiled and the other is oiled or has a aluminum oxide finish? AO shows scratches easy over a darker floor.
