Q: Hi, where can I get the Seaman Kent hardwood flooring, 3/8″ x 2″, in Kingston, Ontario? Or in another city?
A: Seaman-Kent went out of business during the great depression of the 30’s
and their main building and business were taken over by Stanley Knight
who have also gone out of business quite a number of years ago. Even
their family members business, Knights of Meaford went under a few years
Having said all that, I don’t know where you will find 2″ wide
boards. If you required enough you might be able o get a private mill
to make it for you.
