Does anyone have any experiences with or opinions about the Vintage Hardwood brand? I am considering their Solid Sawn product (it is a type of engineered hardwood) in Hickory (Old Mission color), since they claim it is much more stable than their crafted engineered.

Anyone have any experiences with their Solid Sawn product? I can't go with their normal solid hardwood because we have a cement slab foundation.

I've learned a lot from this forum, so thank you!

Are you speaking of rotary peeled vs solid sawn engineered?

No - it's not referring to whether it is rotary peeled or not. (It took me a while to understand their terms too)

Vintage has 4 types of hardwood flooring: Pioneered (Solid); Crafted (Engineered); Solid-Sawn (Engineered); and U-LOC.

From what I understand, their Solid-Sawn is basically 3 layers - the wear layer on top, a solid core placed perpendicular in the middle, and a bottom layer which is the same species as the wear layer and has about the same thickness. They claim that this "Solid-Sawn" line is even more stable than the typical engineered.

Yes - exactly. It has less plys than many other engineered, but the 3 plys that it has are very similar in thickness and composition. In your experience, is it more stable than the more typical engineered? Would you pay $0.50 /sqft more for it over a more typical engineered product? Would you agree that it is ok to have it installed on a ground level concrete slab foundation?

Thank you for your help! :D

I would go with the solid sawn eng. There are more stable imo balanced plys make a difference.

Yes more stable than most anything I have seen around and yes on properly tested concrete. That floor costs 7 + bucks a sf. So fitty cents is nothing.

Thanks Kevin and Stephen! I really appreciate the reassurance.

Anyone else have anything to say about their experiences with the "Vintage" brand?

I'll be paying $6.99/sqft (+$2.50 install) for the solid sawn hickory (old mission color). I can't quite afford Lauzon or Mirage, but Vintage seems to be some nice stuff, especially for the price.
