I am considering purchasing some wide plank pine flooring from a company in Maine called "Maine Heart Pine". I received a sample from them and it looked great. My problem is that their prices are so good, it seems too good to be true.

Has anybody heard or dealt with this company?

I have not dealt with them, but it is not inconceivable. Sometimes companies stumble upon a great deal, themselves, and they pass the savings along to the customer. Moreover, many internet-based companies routinely provide much better prices than local dealers, in part because they eliminate often several middle-men in the distribution chain, and because their cost of doing business are so much lower. I have done business with them, and although the service is not as instant and gracious as local dealers, I (and friends) have had good experience. Your instincts are good to be careful, but it is not something to automatically dismiss.
