Why Choose me as your flooring contractor?

  • Trained & Educated
    • I am qualified to install your flooring and have been trained and certified by flooring manufacturers and industry associations in the installation of many different flooring surfaces. See my credentials page for more information.
    • Some of the residential floors I install & repair:
      • Hardwood - Domestic (e.g. oak, maple) & Exotic (e.g.. Brazilian Cherry), solid, engineered, floating, glued direct, nailed or stapled, pre-finished & site finished.
      • Carpet - Tufted, woven, patterns, wool and other natural fiber (sisal, coir, mountain grass), stretched or glued down wall-to-wall, indoor and out, and area rug fabrication.

      • Laminate Flooring- Floating, All brands, mechanical locking (clic), or glued together.
      • Tile - Ceramic, Porcelain, glass, metal, mosaic, floors, walls, counter-tops and backsplashes.
      • Cork Flooring - tile, planks, glued direct or floating, floors, walls and cork underlayment for sound control.

      • Stone - Marble, Granite, Travertine, Limestone and many others. Floors, walls, fireplaces and patios.
  • Experienced
    • I have over thirty-six years in the flooring installation trade (Since 1980). I don't have one year of experience 36 times over, (doing the same thing over and over). I have performed most aspects of flooring installation at one time or another.
  • References 
    • I have a long list of satisfied clients, references by request and only of clients who have permitted their contact information be shared. See the flooring installation gallery for pictures of my work or my current thumbtack reviews page.
  • Personal Service
    • I will personally measure, quote, specify and advise you of your flooring options...then if hired- I'll actually install your flooring, I won't be sending an installation crew or sales rep. I work solo and expeditiously and am very accurate when estimating the time it will take to complete your project.
  • Courteous & Prompt
    • Your home is your castle, I always ask permission to enter a space, show up and finish on schedule with minimal disruption to your lifestyle. 
  • Cleanliness
    • I keep the job-site clean and organized. Cover and/or protect things that require it. Use air filters, fans and vacuums for dust control, ventilation for your health and mine.
  • Preparedness
    • I own a 2004, E-350, Super Duty, dual axle service vehicle with a steel top rack, and I can use it to pull a heavy duty trailer when necessary as well. This allows me to safely haul your flooring investment as well as my extensive collection of flooring tools and equipment.  This enables me to be prepared for just about anything and equipped to tackle any type of unforeseen circumstance with little to no inconvenience.
  • General Construction Knowledge
    • I know how a building is constructed...why, and how things work.  I've made simple adjustments during an installation, like- stop a running toilet, or hide an exposed TV cable wire, adjusted a rubbing sliding closet door, etc.; just because it made for a happy customer. All-in-all, I'm a handy guy to have around and can fix many things and understand how various building materials can work in harmony. 
  • Sub-floor Preparation
    • I provide dustless concrete grinding, patching and pouring of self-leveling cement to flatten and/or clean sub-floors.  
    • I install wood underlayment panels, plywood sub-floors, cement backer boards and Ditra underlayments.
    • Provide moisture & pH testing, concrete sealing and other remediation work. Some good reading on why floors fail.

  • Independent
    • I am not tied to any flooring manufacturer or dealer. I’m not receiving spiffs to sway you towards one floor product or another. I am willing to install your floor wherever you choose to purchase it and whatever brand it may be. The only thing I care about is that you've chosen a floor that works for your lifestyle and you're happy with the final product until comes a time when you want something new or different.

  • Careful
    • I'm going to treat your possessions like I treat my own. I won't be throwing your furniture around or storing it outside in the front yard under the hot sun. I won't be leaking oil in your driveway, dumping waste water in your toilet, banging up your wood-work or paint job, etc.;  simply because I care.
  • Personal Guarantee
    • The state of Arizona requires a licensed contractor to back up their work for two years. That's all fine and dandy; but I want happy, repeat customers who have confidence in referring their friends and family. I will attend to any workmanship concerns promptly for as long as I’m still installing for a living, at no cost to you. If for some reason the chosen flooring product fails to perform as advertised, I can provide support of your product warranty claim with the manufacturer. 

All these things add up to a professional flooring installation and repair service and
