Ended up getting some nice clearance Hardwood and had it installed by the friendly staff of Home depot. We didn't purchase enough but the hardwood guy went back to the shop brought the few pieces we were short and we weren't dinged any extra.
We hired them to do a complete overhaul of our house. They gutted it to the core and put it back together to our complete satisfaction. They are an A class business and I would recommend them to anyone!
We called them for a last minute hardwood flooring job and they fit us into the schedule quite quickly without charging us an arm and a leg.
They came on time and everything was done to our satisfaction.
