I'm new to the Colorado area and back running my trade of finish carpentry. We moved from coastal Maine. I have a homeowner who just bought 3/4" x 5" Hickory prefinished solid plank flooring and asked for a quote for 2000sq' above grade. I've done work for them before and have a good relationship with them. I presented a quote which included a bostik MVP and glueing with nails. Of course it was pricey when they compared it to other so called reputable flooring specialists. I prefer doing thing conservatively and this ultimately eliminates call backs, but am I missing something here? This flooring cost them over $17k and I can't imagine skimping on such a beautiful product installation. They shared with me the other quotes and none had glue or MVP. Is this a regional thing? The home owner called one company and he said I was gouging them! They do trust me but I think with Hickory at a minimum with this size it should be glued as well.... Any thoughts?
