Perfect for DIY: Do-it-Yourselfers and/or Local Handyman or Carpenter Installation *

 

Commodity-Oriented Resellers require an Acclimatization Period for their Wide Plank wood Flooring lumber — The lumber must be STICKERED carefully — stacked with evenly spaced cross-sticks between every row — to support the lengths without 'sagging' — This time-consuming and space-wasting process must be done within the building in which the Flooring is to be installed and under enclosed and ideal heat, humidity and ventilated conditions. Assuming, you “do-it-right”, the sheer time and space required to 'evenly' distribute and Sticker thousands of pound of lumber, places you in an 'impassable' position ... 'tripping over your own lumber' — and inhibiting most indoor construction — for ten (10) to fourteen (14) days before installation of your Wide Plank Flooring can begin. In addition, Stickering causes “Cross-Strain” and Sticker Marks (UVL).

 

Whereas, Stickering is not an issue as Marreed-Prestman maintains proper Kiln-Pitch * using controlled indoor storage and Just-in-Time (JIT) Delivery ... No Acclimatization Period (or Stickering) is required for 'local' hand-delivered product whether you chose my Full Installation or DIY: Do-it-Yourself Lumber Supply.

Lastly, Stickered Lumber must be unstickered and sorted by length prior to starting the job as it is unadvisable and impractical to draw the various lengths of lumber you require from a heavy and inaccessible Stickered Stack ... more space, more labour and more time is inefficient, wasteful and impractical when other, more important matters are always more pressing to complete your new-build or renovation project near schedule.

 

* NO acclimatization period is required under normal (above +10 degree Celsius) delivery and proper installation conditions ... NO ten (10) to fourteen (14) day 'Waiting Period' to 're-condition' the wood because I control final product processing “beginning-to-end”, without 'abusive handling or storage' delays.

* Applies to JIT Mill Readiness and 'local' hand-delivery in above-zero degree temperatures. Extended distances and/ or Winter delivery conditions and/or commercial transportation may affect Kiln-Pitch to some extent and may require minimal (48 hr. room-temperature) acclimation but, no Stickering.

* The Client is responsible for IMMEDIATE INSTALLATION (within five [5] days) of delivery in order to maintain Mill Readiness and Kiln-Pitch and avoid 'abusive handling or storage' which will affect the flatness and straightness of any lumber..

 

“Price is King?

 

If you desire Investment Grade Flooring that appreciates in value and is Warm, Beautiful and Livable, you may be well advised — in my biased and knowledgeable opinion — to be aware of products I do NOT recommend ...  

bullet Now, try buying Northern Ontario Wide Plank Red Pine from these same Commodity-Oriented Resellers and you will be able to buy it at less cost Retail than I pay for “Export Quality” wholesale!  But, you know you are buying a Commodity-Oriented product for the Short Term — complete with 'hidden' defects' and you will have to buy 1,000 linear feet at a time — regardless of the quantity required.

bullet My internationally recognized EXPORT QUALITY NORTHERN ONTARIO WIDE PLANK RED PINE FLOORS beat them all, 'hands-down' on quality and consistency. I also offer increasing levels of Value-Added services in Mill Run, Merchant Plus, Select or Premium Grades ... there is a “Best-of-the-Best” to suite your particular requirements whether it be “Price is King” or “High-End”.

 

Price is King” ... When “Price-is-King”, you may be shopping for short-term gain ... be cautious about Wide Plank Flooring material (of any kind) that is of mixed species and/or inconsistent widths. Substandard Grades, Air Dried, V-Joint (top edges), and 'unpredictable storage', etc. as these are just a few items “you will eventually pay for” with regret.

 

bullet Substandard materials will cause “a problem Flooring” in an otherwise valuable property ... 'substandard' products are sold everywhere by 'trusted' Commodity-Oriented Resellers.  For example, walk into a “Big Box” store and locate “Canada Grade “A”-Select 2”X4” Spruce lumber and 'experience' disappointment and disbelief that such substandard product can be STAMPED with a “Mill Rating” of Canada: Grade “A”-Select. It is sloppiness in sourcing and retailing, plain and simple.  Price is King!

Notable Quotes

 

“Just to let you know that my (DIY) pine Flooring installation went without a hitch in my 1840s heritage home and the end result is all that we had hoped for. Based upon my two DIY: Do-it-Yourself ventures with laying Flooring purchased from and delivered promptly by your company, I have no hesitation in recommending that any potential purchaser feel secure in the quality of the wood received and in the fairness of any possible after-sales service required. You really do go out of your way so much to ensure a happy customer, a complete service that is rare today.” 

Roger & Nora, Ayr, Ontario (Kitchener/Waterloo)

 

Local Installation and DIY: Do-It-Yourself SKILLS?

 

DIY's require the knowledge, time and skill required to install*, sand finish their Flooring. If you require “experienced help”, consider a local carpenter or Flooring finisher with proven qualifications.

* The Client is responsible for IMMEDIATE INSTALLATION (within five [5] days) of delivery in order to maintain “Mill Readiness and Kiln-Pitch and to avoid 'abusive handling or storage' which will affect the flatness and straightness of the lumber.

 

Notable Quote

 

“Our Project Manager told us that your Flooring would put us 'over budget' — he did not seem to care about my Flooring as a quality-of-life investment nor the concept behind kid-and-dog friendly Flooring — he said we could let him install local white pine Flooring ... tongue-nailed and finished with Tung-oil and still remain on budget. Now, we have his Flooring installed and it is definitely not what we wanted. We should have stuck with our initial reasons for wanting your Flooring ... we could have easily  'compromised' elsewhere.”
