Q: I’ve heard that some hardwood floor retailers with large discounts have floor products that may not be the same size on each end, which can create installation problems for contractors. What are the preferred retailers contractors usually order oak hardwood from? I’m reluctant to make a purchase on line for fear of a substandard produce.
A: What you’ve heard would be correct. From my experience, B**** tended to be an awful product and consistently so while Mirage tended to be better. At the end of the day though still prefer unfinished without the bevels. Sheoga was the best I’ve used in unfinished and I understand they are now making pre finished also. Your best bet is to go buy a product from a retailer who specializes in hardwood. Goodfellow may put out a decent floor also.
