Interested what you folks paid for veneer when doing some DIY work… I was quoted by a few places for ‘red oak’, one place wanted $2.70/sq.ft. for single ply paper backed, same place $2.91/sq.ft. for dual ply. Another lumber yard was asking $1.61 for single ply paper backed in strips no wider than 4 feet, 6+ feet wide rolls were in the $2/sq.ft. range. Is it worth getting the more expensive stuff in hopes of better ‘quality’? Or is the price difference still within ‘tolerances’ of dealer markups? I can’t see or touch either veneer since the shop puts the order through and only then come in.
