It is a custom stain, and the floors are mixed grain red oak. When I say custom, what I mean is that our flooring subcontractor provided a few standard colors and mixed them to achieve the right color. It's ideal to hire a flooring contractor who is willing to provide stain samples on the floor for selection before sanding and applying stain everywhere. That way you can get exactly the color you want. Hope your project goes beautifully!

Thats one of the big advantages of a site finished floor. The homeowner can decide exactly what color they want over their floor.

We install solid wood floors first. I see the section you're reading, and my point was that you don't install flooring up to the toe kick--the toe kick goes in last.

Jim Hederman - Cabinets can be installed either way. I've always done it the way you have. Test fit and level toe kicks, then put in the floor, then trim and re-install toe kicks.
It seems to me flooring is replaced more often than cabinets. And you aren't paying for square footage of flooring you'll never see. Flooring that you have to put holes through to mount the base cabinets. It does inhibit changing the shape of the kitchen if remodeling though, because then you have to replace the floor.

valtex,
The rules tend to be different in every state. I did a quick check of Texas regulations and came up with a webpage full of advice from your attorney general: https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/consumer/home_improvement.shtml It includes the requirement that your deposit over $5,000 be deposited at a bank where you have access to records to ensure it's being paid out properly. If you need help tracking down answers to the specific questions about Texas law above I would contact that office for assistance.
On the question of bonding, my understanding is there are two forms of bond:
Contractor's bond is one that can be drawn upon from multiple parties. In Washington State, for instance, there is a $12,000 bond for contractors and $6,000 for subcontractors. Should the contractors default, those they owe money to can make a claim against their bond.
Performance bond is a bond posted for a specific project and amount. My understanding is that this is used most commonly in commercial and other real estate development projects.
Your questions about insurance is a good one. General liability insurance is different from workers' comp insurance, and it's important to ask what contractors carry and what it covers. The contractor should also ensure that their subcontractors carry required insurance, and in Washington anyway, that they are listed as an additional insured with the subcontractor's insurance. Any contractor who is running their business above board should be willing to provide proof (on paper or online) that they carry required insurance and follow state regulations.
