We saw Igor and
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
at
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
Home Improvement Expo in Spring 2014. Later another friend referred me to them for granite work saying they are the area's best granite installers. My friend had got ktichen granite installed thru them. Based on the good reference initially had called them for replacing granite in the kitchen of our home but later found out they are a full-fledged contractors who handle full kitchen/bath remodels. Despite not knowing their track record of kitchen/bath remodels went with a confidence based on the work they had done at my friend's house. Igor does all of the customer management and is extremely knowledgeable in granite. He can talk hours about granite and knows it very well. Igor gave some great ideas on how to go about the remodel, we were not planning to replace bathroom countertops but due to his suggestions were convinced granite is the way to go for bathrooms as well. We did not change the layout of our kitchen so there was no significant drywall work.

took all of the measurements for the kitchen cabinets and seemed pretty meticulous. Igor took us to a large granite warehouse in South Sac. We selected our granite from there. Later went to the cabinet place right next to Igor's office in Rancho

. Considering the price range we went with Homecrest Cherry cabinets. They have a fairly decent collection of cabinet brands including Diamond. The work started on the day it was promised. We knew these types of major remodels take a couple of months and were mentally prepared for it. Igor is very professional and communicates clearly. They verbally communicate the schedule of when things will happen instead of giving a sheet of paper - it did not bother us. A lot of the information sharing was thru Text messages or phone calls. Sometimes via email. You get concerned whether they captured your requirement sometimes. We were looking for oven/microwave combo and initially had chosen 27", so
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
had planned his cabinets accordingly. Later we changed to 30" and sent a text msg to Igor about it. Until the cabinets arrived we were wondering whether they had captured the change correctly and indeed they had captured it correctly and got the correct size cabinets!! The one thing we would have liked is a nice 3d diagram of the future kitchen which they had promised to send but what we got was an OK drawing. Again it did not bother us as we were more concerned with the quality of the work. At the end the cabinet work and granite work turned out to be outstanding. Even after fully paying them we have been calling them to get some minor fixes and they readily completed those w/o us having to prod them continuously. Apex has proven to be a trustworthy and high quality contractor. We are happy with the work they have done so far. Would not hesitate to use their service again in future.

Dorel and his crew,
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
&
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
, did a wonderful job. Dorel is very professional from the bid process through the installation and clean up. He had good ideas, was very nice and patient answering any questions, and explained how or why he was doing something a certain way. Everything was very clear and your never left guessing. I was stressed about moving furniture but the way Dorel planned all the work out took all my stress away. They worked from room to room completing each room as they went so the work site was left very neat and clean each day. The quality of their work is TOP NOTCH! We are extremely happy with how the job turned out. Dorel and his crew went above and beyond with their customer service, skill, and keeping the job site clean. They were very punctual and completed a lot each day. The job was completed earlier than we planned and beyond our expectations. I HIGHLY recommend
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
and will be spreading the word. You may have to wait a bit but its something you want done right so it's worth it. One last thing I have to add is that I really admire their professionalism and pride in their work.

I never, ever expected to work with such wonderful people.
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
had great ideas, and really knew what he was doing. He was just absolutely amazing, and he did a great job of establishing trust with me. My house was immaculate after their work was completed. I’d highly recommend them.

We purchased a house and had a short window of time to remove the carpet and replace with hardwood floors.

and his team were very fast and professional. The job finished early and within the estimated budget.

The work took about two and a half days to complete. They came in the first day and took up the old flooring and sanded the the floors down. They covered everything in our kitchen with plastic and sealed it with tape to avoid dust getting on our appliances and into our cabinets. The second day had them putting on the finish and the stain. In the end, our floors look fantastic and we could not be happier.

Average price and pleasant to work with, but poor quality of work. Sanding pattern still visible in a number of places, and very poor work around the edges of each room.

My wife and I were very satisfied with the work that they did. They were professional people. The only problem we had with them was that they did not order enough wood for the floor. It took them two weeks to get the job finished.

I intially contacted
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
for a quote to repair the damage caused by my tenant to my hardwood floors. I met with
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
, who explained what the company could do. He also informed me that they sell and install carpet. I showed him my bid from another carpet provider and he said he could beat that bid. He emailed me a quote the next day and i decided to use the company. After I stopped by the showroom and selected the carpet, the carpet was installed on the upper level of my home in one day, and the hardwood repairs took two days. Both jobs were completed on time and in a professional manner. I am not a fan of carpet, but the carpet looks and feels great. The hardwood floors (on the lower level) look brand new. I woul d not hesitate to use this company again!

Overall, I am very dissatisfied dealing with
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
. I found him to be rude and only interested in making a buck, which he certainly did on our job. His job was to install around 1200 square feet of engineered hardwood as well as install baseboard. As near as I can tell, you can hire an installer off Craigslist for around $25-$35 / hour. If I assume
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
paid his assistant around $40 / hour (which I doubt he did), then
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
would pull down around $140 / hour. That's good money for a doctor, not a floor installer.
Anyway, my gripes about
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
and his work are fourfold.
1. VERY poor communication and people skills
We originally scheduled to have the work done on Monday - Wednesday, November 19-21. At some point I called him and left a message on his cell phone indicating that I would have a hard time getting that Monday off and asked if there were any other times he could do the job. Without calling back to discuss it with me, he moved our job to DECEMBER! This was after we had been living on concrete for weeks after pulling up our previous flooring. This indicated to me an extreme lack of communication and respect and suffice to say we were off to a bad start. I recommended to my wife we find a new hardwood floor installer,
but she just wanted to get the job done, so we pressed on.
2. Entering our house uninvited when we were not home
We did finally schedule alternate dates to complete the work after we had been bumped from our original time slot (no doubt for a more lucrative job), which was on Wed - Friday, Nov 28-30.
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
came by that Monday, Nov 26th to drop off the material. My wife arranged with
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
to meet her father to drop off the material at 2PM.
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
showed up at our house at around 1:30PM . When no one was home, he entered our unlocked garage door uninvited and began unloading the hardwood in our house. Apparently, around the same time, he left my wife a message indicating if no one was there to let him in, he was going to leave the 1200
square feet of VERY HEAVY engineered hardwood ON THE DRIVEWAY!!! Suffice to say my wife was FURIOUS! Now she agreed with me that we should have found a new installer, but we both wanted the job done now, as it had been weeks living on concrete.
3. Poor Workmanship and RUDE!!!
The last straw was
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
's actual workmanship. First, whenever either my wife or I tried to speak to
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
, he often started a loud saw or just turned his back on us, ignored us and continued working. Very rude, to say the least. Obviously,
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
was only intent on moving on to the next job, not concerning himself with ours. Finally, the material we ordered came in only three sizes of boards - short (2 ft), medium (3 ft) and long (4 ft). If you look at our floor, we have several rows of only the short boards, then groups of long boards, then groups of only short boards. I guess I thought it was pretty obvious that you should just mix up the lengths of boards to avoid these groupings.
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
just kept saying that 3/4 of the boards were short. That may be but I ended up with 4 completely unopened packages of boards (112 square feet total), which certainly would have contained enough middle to long
boards to break up the short board groupings.
4. Sloppy or no cleanup.
In grinding down some high spots on our concrete floor,
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
got a relatively thick
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
of concrete dust over the inside of our ENTIRE HOUSE. All that needed to be done here was shut doors and warn us ahead of time that their concrete grinder machine kicks up a LOT of dust and we would have bought cheap plastic tarps and covered everything. Nothing about excessive dust was ever communicated to us ahead of time. The horrible dust everywhere could have easily been avoided. They also made a huge mess outside with sawdust everywhere. Again, easily avoided with tarps and no effort to clean up the sawdust which got all
over (and I have photos to prove it).
In short, I would not recommend
Folsom Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
to anyone.
