Charlie: Jack in Manville. Well, not a lot of water there but he says that his wife and him came to see you at the Stafford Center.
Tom: Oh that was fun down there.
Charlie: But you were gone. You had split. You were down the road.
Tom: Oh, sorry.
Charlie: He says, “My hurricane adjuster said that engineered floors were a higher price than hardwood floors. Is that true?”
Tom: Depends what you buy. I mean, there’s all kinds of price ranges. Not necessarily. If you take a regular hardwood floor, you have it installed properly, then you have to have the guys come out and refinish it or finish it because it’s raw wood, it can be a little pricey when it’s all done. And there is some engineered floors that can be less expensive. So, it depends what you choose. There must be 50 manufacturers of engineered floors today.
Charlie: Well, his challenge is he’s got those screeds over the tar thing-
Charlie: He wants to put engineered floors over it. You can still do that?
Tom: Well, no, he’ll have to put plywood down first because it’ll have to go on a solid plywood deck.
Charlie: So, now it is getting pricier.
Tom: Well, if that’s the case … I didn’t have that little detail.
Charlie: I was … you started before I could finish.
Tom: Oh, I’m sorry. So, it could be.
Tom: But, I would say talk to someone like Jason at Texas Floors-
Charlie: Mm-hmm (affirmative).
Tom: It might not be depending what you’re choosing because plywood goes down pretty quick and it depends on the area too. So, take a look at it and see what’s best for you.
