Finding it hard to match an existing floor thickness

Q imported from our old site, Face Lift Floors:  I am diligently trying to match an existing floor so I can add on to it. Unfortunately, the local flooring company is no longer in business so matching it has been very difficult. The flooring is 1/2″ thick.

Everything I can find is either 3/4″, 3/8″ or 5/16″ and none of the standard (1/4″). Underlayments will not allow me to match the thickness of the existing flooring. Can you make any recommendations as to a resolution to this problem?

A: Perhaps you have a mill near you that would cut to your specs? For example, in Toronto we have Unicorn Universal Wood Products.
