How popular is Douglas fir?
Douglas fir has been used since the late 1800’s. It was installed in homes of the very wealth as well as one room cabins. Douglas fir was very popular in the first half of the 20th century and when “wall to wall carpeting” became the in thing the floors were covered. People who have bought older homes and have removed the carpeting were extremely happy to find the wood flooring and how well it looks.
How much product should you order?
Depending on the shape of the room or rooms estimate an average of 10% waste. If the area is an odd shape the waste could be higher. It is important to talk to your installer and ask them what they’re estimating the waste will be and how much product to order. Just remember, if you are short on product it will delay your project waiting on material and potentially cost more money and not to mention an inconvenience.

NOTE: Flooring needs to be stored inside for 2 to 5 days prior to installation. This allows the flooring to acclimate to the existing climate conditions such as temperature and humidity. This needs to be considered when scheduling the installation.
The trucking company is not responsible for unloading the material and allows 30 minutes for unloading. If unloading takes longer than 30 minutes, the trucking company may charge additional fees for stand-by time. Any additional charges will be the customer’s responsibility.

It may be advisable to have your order delivered to an alternative location for easy offloading.
