Am putting on an addition w about 600 sq ft on 1st & 2nd floor (600 each fl) to cover w hardwood flooring. Each floor is basically one big room. Recent discussions w flooring people have steered us to the standard 3/4″ Oak but one flooring guy was hot on a 3/8″ Oak called “Quarter Sawn”. Price for the 3/8″ was about 50 cents cheaper per sq ft for the T&G flooring boards. We are watching our pennies on this projest and was wondering what those “in the know” have to say about the 3/8″ vs the 3/4″ t&g Oak flooring? Thanks.
