Personally I would go with Vintage solid sawn. For sure price of wood will be cheaper here in GTA, just call a few dealers and compare. But you have to take into consideration the van rental, your time, gas, etc. But on higher square footage might be worth it.audiorichard wrote: ↑Hi, I plan to put around 1200 sq ft of wide plank hardwood flooring in my townhouse, I am now consider to get vintage flooring solid sawn wire brushed 7" white oak (around $9.8 per sq ft) or Mirage Old Red Oak Barn Wood 6.5" (around $10.5 per sq ft). And I have few questions:
1. For Mirage hardwood, it is 6.5" with only 1/2" thickness while Vintage flooring comes with 3/4" thickness, does it make a different for long term? or is 3/4" more durable? since I have 2 kids and I assume they will makes lots of marks.
2. Since I am in Ottawa, is it cheaper to buy hardwood floor from other city, such as Toronto? Does it worth the cost to ship them to Ottawa?
3. Are there any good brand selling plank as well with lower price? I try to avoid to buy hardwood that need to recoat the oil finish once a year.
Thanks for any advise.
