Default Ottawa Hardwood Flooring (Vintage brand)

I decided against having Tamarack do the hardwood upstairs in our new home (their price was outrageous) and so I had planned to go with Rome flooring, based on Patrob's recommendation a few months back. I've been having a hell of a time getting timely responses from them and I'm thinking of looking elsewhere.

Westboro does the hardwood for Tamarack and so I thought about getting in touch with them, but I feel like they're going to rip me off just so as to protect their relationship and pricing with Tamarack.

The wood is Vintage Natural Red Oak Pioneered Estate 3-1/4"

Any recommendations? It seems like not a lot of places in Ottawa carry the Vintage brand. I'm not interested in others at this point - we've had the same floors in our current home and love them, and its what we had Tamarack put throughout the main floor of our new home.

I punched in my postal code on the Vintage website and here's what came up (you might want to try yours just in case there are more):

Looks like Allied Flooring is another option...good luck!

Ha. Called Allied, rang forever then went to voicemail "the mailbox for (blank) is full and cannot accept any more messages, please call back later."

That's reassuring.

Wow - no kidding! I tried a couple of other postal codes and those three dealers seem to be the only ones in Ottawa...

Thanks Yup I'm Orleans too (K4A 0M4) and other searching turned up the same companies. Guess I'll keep at it with Rome and maybe give Westboro a shot.
