We are looking at having some maple floors installed, and the two places we are considering don't sell the same brands of wood. The first company (which we'd used in the last house and we know did good work) sells Mirage but its $6.99/sq ft. The other place sells Mohawk at $6.09.
So there is the risk of a new company (though recommended by someone), and not sure how much better the Mirage wood is. The new guy admitted its better, but didn't think it was worth the price difference (not knowing what price the first guy said).
To compete with place #2's price, place #1 offered 'Moosewood' for 5.75

Anyone really understand the difference?
We know the Mirage held up for 10 years and still looked great. But we have a lot of work to do on the house and dont want to waste money for something too highend.

Thanks

As a Mohawk retailer for almost 20 years I ve had great success with Mohawk and all their lines. But if you ve have had luck and know the Mirage is a good line go for it. The only one I haven t heard of is the Moosehead. This could be a private line for some one but I don t know.
The aluminum oxide finish on the Mohawk is very durable..
So I think it boils down to a draw for the Mirage and Mohawk.
Tell both places its down to price and see what they ll do.. GL
