Thank you for the info. We've decided not to go with Wickham. =)cxcr wrote: ↑Aug 22nd, 2009 1:56 pmHi Free Willy,
I tried to upload a picture but have not figured out how to do so.
Well, a lot planks have very dark spots/lines/clouds. Just like Patrob said you got what you paid for. However, dark stain may be able to cover these.
Other than the colour variation, some planks have big dark hole on the back.
Sorry for all the questions, Patrob. We're still deciding which direction we want to go in and appreciate your patience. As of now, we're leaning towards all hardwood stairs. If we end up going this route, should we install the floors or the stairs first? We're going to be getting different companies to do the separate projects.patrob wrote: ↑Aug 23rd, 2009 7:57 pmI took a look at the inspiration pic again & the stairs look fully carpeted. The part of the railing looks like a mini wall following the stairs with mouldings & railings are installed on it. So for this, you will not have to re-cap your stairs. But remove the railings, build up the railing side, re-install the railings/pickets & paint it. The price for wood sounds ok.
Also, we dropped by Darmaga and the sales rep we spoke to didn't seem too impressed with Mirage's "Exclusive" grade. He suggested Superior instead. How does Mirage's "Exclusive" compare to Superior's "Select" and "Select & Better"?
