Why Wide Plank RED PINE?

 

New Wide Plank Knotty RED PINE Flooring enhances classic decor styles ... from Antiques to Stainless.

Most everyone who is 'associated' with your project will 'vent an opinion' and some are determined to separate you from “your vision” ... that is why you must determine whether you are building a commodity — a “Race to The Bottom” based on price alone — or are you “Building on a Vision” — whereby “an Emotional Connection” is required of all Lifestyle Living Materials. One must resolve this 'dilemma' before starting to build or renovate. Where will you use Commodity Products and where will you use Lifestyle Materials ... What is critical to your Vision?

Northern Ontario Wide Plank Knotty RED PINE Flooring is a Visual Feast that will reflect your lifestyle and impact your mood day-in and day-out. People who desire a Marreed-Prestman Flooring, generally do so, with the intent of building an Emotional Connection within their living environment. Clients experience the warmth, beauty and durability of new, Hand-Crafted (Hand Distressed) Rustic Hand-Crafted Distressed “Kid and Dog Friendly”™ RED PINE Flooring.

Qualify Your Actual Requirements

 

Be fair to yourself ... determine your actual requirements before 'factoring' prices...

 

In my experience, people rush to guesstimate their Flooring requirements which falsely encourages or discourages them when they calculate the cost of their Flooring project ... if you underestimate your requirements, you may be surprised by the actual square footage and appropriate budget requirement ... if you overestimate you may 'disqualify' yourself based on false 'pricing' information. Neither situation is advantages.

 

Calculate your actual  sf. Flooring requirements as accurately as possible?

 

Not withstanding the obvious — we all have a tape measure — but, this exercise may surprise you .... if you are building or renovating 2,000 sf., you may only require 1,500 sf. of Wide Plank Knotty RED PINE Flooring plus, utility Flooring.

1a) Measure the interior of each room (excluding walls, including closets) then, remove the footprint for the kitchen and bathroom cabinets/counters, tubs/showers, staircase, fireplace/stove base areas and closets that you may not want done, etc., to determine a fair measure. (Remember, 'building plans' may change. Avoid 'exterior' dimensions.)

1b) Consider Cutting and Fitting 'waste' ... it may be higher than expected, as this, in part, changes as your plans progress, depending on the 'complexity' of the 'final' Flooring layout, belated Flooring plan changes including cabinets, counters, bathroom fixtures, fireplace, stairs and wall locations ... but, more importantly, consider the skill, experience and efficiency of the installation crew.

1c) Consider your budget requirements. If budget is “an issue” when considering “wall-to-wall” artistic Flooring, consider doing selective areas ... the critical living areas ... use utility Flooring in other areas. Keeping, in mind, the more types of Flooring used, the more “chopped-up” your building project will look.

1d) Stairways are not to be included in square footage measurements. Stair Risers, Treads and Mouldings are priced separately.
