I am buying a new (old) house in St. Petersburg that has undergone some renovation and expansion. The original section has some beautiful refinished oak hardwood. The new section has Pergo! I want to yank out the laminate and install hardwood, but I want to match the 40+ year old hardwood as best I can. Another complication, part of the addition has wooden subfloors and part is concrete slab. I am looking for a 2 1/4" strip, and because I will have to glue to a slab, I am leaning toward engineered hardwood. The only manufacturer that I found was Bruce for a 2 1/4" oak, any suggestions?

It sounds to me like you are headed in the right direction. Oak is pretty easy to match. The only difference you might have is the engineered flooring having a micro bevel and the existing not having that, if the existing floor was finished on site. If the existing is in fact site finished, I would look for a site finished engineered that can be glued, to avoid the bevel.

Thanks. I was looking for a general match not to try to weave them floors together, so the bevel is insignificant. Are you aware of anyone beside Bruce?

I think LM hardwood floors has one. Not positive.
