You might want to check with ETI and Pioneer again. When I talked to Jennifer at Pioneer couple months back. She was pretty clear about what ETI will put in and what they will not. She also stated some of the approved brands ETI will not install due to thickness of the flooring.

This is Jennifer's email who handles ETI flooring orders at Pioneer.

I ordered samples from Armstrong - 14" x 14", I think. They were $5 each and arrived quite quickly. In addition to giving a good idea of the pattern, they also gave a good idea of the thickness and cushioning - there was significant differences between many of them.

There is still a big selection of vinyl flooring available, and it is better now than ever, with better wear resistance and nicer patterns. Heck, even I have had to get right down and touch a floor to see if there were real grout lines or not.

Jordans is the supplier we use, and has locations is all across western Canada. Maybe give them a shot. There was a myriad of samples in the store here.

I was told to talk to Jackie at Pioneer, so I guess there are a couple girls handling orders there. jackie@pioneerbuildall.com

I ended up buying through Jordans and getting my contractor deal, though did have to pick it up in Abbotsford and drop it off at Escape, which was no big deal while I was there, other than I had to keep the tailgate of the Dodge Durango I had rented up as it was too long to fit inside.

I agree that the quality is better now. I just put some new stuff in my office and it's a very high quality compared to the stuff of yesteryear.

We had seen some vinyl in a friend's house that we thought was real tile. And, yes, I also got down to have a closer look because I was surprised when they said it was vinyl, not tile. That's what we're looking for.

We haven't been to Jordans, it's not a store that we usually shop at but, thanks for the tip.

Richard, we had the same concern. However, we stopped at Pioneer in Chilliwack when we were enroute to the rally in Osoyoos and picked out our Mannington floor at that time.

Thanks for the information. Does Pioneer have a good selection of samples? We currently have 5 samples from Armstrong, and like 2 quite well. But I would like to see other manufactures' products. I also don't know how the products from the different manufactures rate against each other. Did Poineer recommend any one manufacture over the others?

You might want to tell Escape what flooring you want before you order it as they don't necessarily do them all.

Escape will do any sheet vinyl flooring. It is any other type of flooring they will not do.

Expect you are right. It could be that I am thinking that Pioneer will not do anything.

When I ordered my floor I learned that a repeating pattern that has to be matched substantially increases the price of the floor. You have to order more then the standard amount to match the pattern. Mine is the large black and white check. Just something to keep in mind when looking at samples.
