Solid Hardwood Brands - Opinions?

Posted by samwich538 (My Page) on

We're putting in 2-1/4 site-finished solid red oak over concrete slab.

We've got quotes from installers who use: Taylor, Shamrock, Mullican, Northwood and Maxwell flooring.

Any opinions on these flooring brands, pro or con? Any other brands you like or had bad experiences with?

Much appreciated!

RE: Solid Hardwood Brands - Opinions?

Taylor makes a fine product-- I have used it. BTW, there is a good article on laying oak over concrete in either Fine Homebuilding or Fine Woodworking in the past couple of years. I get both and cannot recall which I found it in. Find the article on the web or at your library and read it. It takes real care to do this right; and if you don't you will be unhappy.
