Baltimore,MD- wood flooring recommendations

Posted by ravmd (My Page) on

We are looking for ~800 sq ft of wood floor. Love handscraped or reclaimed wood looks but not in our price range. This is for a 2nd home. Found some white oak planks for <$4 sq/ft. But want to shop around a little more. Are there any lumber, wholesale or other type of places in the area that have better deals than the typical showroom type stores?
From googling.. Baltimore Floor works in Westminster comes up. And Lumber Liquidators in Harford Cty.
Any advice?

I'm also looking for a source of hardwood in the Harford County/Baltimore area, and those are the only two sources I have found specifically for hardwood (there are some flooring stores that sell all types of flooring, but are not likely to have the wood on-site). I'm planning to go to Baltimore Floor Works in the near future.

RE: Baltimore,MD- wood flooring recommendations

someone else said to check out Reisterstown Lumber so will give that a shot.
I was at Baltimore Floor Supply and Baltimore Wood Floor Warehouse on Greenspring drive in Timonium (is that the same as Balto Floor works?).

They are 'sister' compnanies-one carries unfinished wood and the other carries finished. 100's of samples to pick from and I think the prices are good, however it is overwhelming and there are not any prices on anything so it is a bit of a pain if you don't know exactly what you are looking for and you have to keep asking "how much". I think I just need to identify some cheaper finished wood brands and then go back and ask them their price as I do think they are price competitive.

I also orderd some samples from Hoskings Hardwood online that seems to get good reviews and also simple floors -which gets mixed reviews (as does Lumber Liquidators).

let me know if you have any luck in your search.

I also ordered samples from Hoskings Hardwood, but haven't received them yet (it's been about 3 weeks since I ordered them). I also ordered samples from the Anderson website, and have received them. I plan to visit the Baltimore Floor Works this coming weekend.
