Help with mill order

I would appreciate some help with an order I want to place with a wood mill.
I am trying to get about 500 square feet of pine tongue and groove planks, one inch thick, relatively free from open knotholes and bark to use as flooring in my woodworking shop. I want the top edges of the planks to be square (not beleved). I don't know if I need the bottom routed for stress relief. I don't think I need exclusively quartersawn, just a random selection of board grain.
I've had some bad experiences ordering sheetmetal when I ordered using "guage" as the unit of measure (now I know to use decimal inches for the specs) and want to avoid similar problems here.
My primary goal is not to look stupid. My other goal is to get several quotes for the same lumber and acutally receive what I am looking for when I go to pick it up.
I think the specifications for the quote should be:
4/4 tongue and groove SYP 10 foot length No. 1 grade
Did I miss something? Any help appreciated.
Thanks Tom

this will get you material that nets 3/4" thick

if you can tolerate a few knots you might look into no. 2 and better.

make sure you talk to an actual person about what each quote really specifies. stuff like the top not being bevelled and how much surfacing is done, what moisture content the wood is- these matter to you and may slip past the person preparing the quote sheet.
