    I called ProSource for a quote on hardwood flooring materials. Isn't it supposed to be a good deal? Their 'special price' for flooring is higher than anywhere else I called -- as much as $1.00 per sq. ft. Am I missing something??

    They use to be about 30% cheaper for the product but they do not do install so you can make up for the difference of the cost on the install. I know when we did our flooring I just needed the wood not someone to install and they were the only ones around that did that. For us they were great but I would not recommend for a 1st time do it yourself person they did not have a lot of information as far as measuring for us

    Did you tell them you were a Broadlands resident? Not sure if it makes a difference, but I thought they had some special pricing for us. Worth a shot I guess...

    Yes they do have a special discount for Broadlands residents. I just did the 2nd and 3rd floor of TH and I thought I got a good price. The estimator/installer was polite, accurate
    and did a great job. The quote I got for hardwood was less than other sources, but the installation cost was a bit on the high side.

    Hey mama, did you do even the bedrooms? Our entire first floor is wood and the stairs up to the hall in our SF. I'd love to do the bedrooms and put area rugs down (like i had in the house I grew up in), but I think in this market that might be a misktake, and I've done enough...

    I'm in a TH and I think it would be overkill to do the bedrooms in wood...and given that I bought at the top of the market, and have already sunk a ton into it, I didn't want to invest anymore than I already have...but given unlimited funds, I'd do the whole place in bamboo...no wait given unlimited funds, I'd drive my Porsche to my yacht and sail to my private island... :D

    Is Broadlands still a "client" of ProSource?

    Thanks.

    Yes.
    I used them for a lot of flooring replacement (Tigerwood) and the price I got couldn't be touched by anyone else I checked with.

    We have used Prosource for a number of flooring projects we have done for jobs here in Ashburn. With flooring you sort of need to shop around, some places will have one item cheaper and others more expensive.

    We have an account with them since we do some many flooring jobs and the pricing we get is a decent discount. If anyone needs more info, you can PM me directly, I am sure I can help you out, if you are doing a DIY project.
