Best Wide Planking NE area

wings13February 13, 2012

Looking for a reputable hardwood flooring company in the Boston area. I love Carlisle in NH but they are beyond my budget of $5-$10 sqft for wide plank random flooring. Also any advice re Red Birch vs Brown Maple vs Heart Pine. I don't like too may knots or variation in boards, I don't want to stain them either. I have looked at Carlisle, Vermont Wide Planking, Timberknee, and Stonewood on-line. TIA for any help.

There's Mountain Lumber. I know they have fantastic reclaimed heart pine.

Here is a link that might be useful: Mountain Lbr.

Wide Plank, doesn't do very well in the NE region.

Big gaps between planks in the winter, if you install it so it doesn't cup & buckle during the summers.

Strip flooring performs better in the NE region.
