Sorry, Got you confused with another poster. :oops:
I go with engineered or regular ol red oak. Drum sanders are a pain but putting the satin finish down is easy enough.
Originally posted by Brian Levredge:I would maybe do a laminate since there are types that look pretty good when installed and can even be refinished one more time. At $5 per ft, installed, It a much cheaper alternative.
Keep in mind that prices will vary by location and contractor.
For example, I can get 3/4" solid oak hardwoods installed and finished onsite with three coats of poly for $5.25 per sq ft, Black Nike Air Force 1 Low On Feet
I also looking into installing hardwood as a DIY project. Not sure if the savings is worth it but Harbor Freight Air Force Ones High
so paying $5/ft for laminate wouldn make sense.
sells the nailer pretty cheap (with good reviews) and plumbing a straight line isn rocket science. The tricky part might be undercutting the door jambs.
I think some people confuse laminate and engineered woods as being one and the same. Laminate floors are not wood floors, they are composite flooring with a picture of wood on top. Engineered wood Nike Air Force 1 Low Red Python floors are 100% wood, the base being made from cheap wood with a final layer of fine wood on top.
Better engineered woods can be refinished multiple times, laminates cannot be sanded/refinished.
I seen alot of designs on HGTV lately where they only use carpet in the bedrooms, hardwood in the family room and the rest in tile. Depending on the floor plan this could look choppy or stunning!
Yeah, you have to put down concrete board on the plywood or OSB subfloor if you went with tile and that can add up but overall still cheaper than Red Air Force High Top
