"I hired
to put down hard wood floors in my living room and they were great. They job ended up being harder than anticipated because my HVAC" had leaked and it turned out the sub flooring was damaged. They quickly spotted the issue and came up with a new plan to fix the floors. Understanding that I was in a hurry to get the floors fixed, they fit me into their schedule even though they were very busy. I found them to be responsive and they were always on time. The floors were beautiful once they were done. I really can't recommend them enough.

-Shelby H.

"After one week, no response of any kind. As an aside, I rather dislike grading a company F because they don't respond to initial requests, but I do think that's" useful feedback for future customers. Unfortunately, Angie's List doesn't provide a lower impact grading mechanism.

Hardwood Flooring

Few home improvement choices add as much character and warmth — not to mention resale value — as hardwood flooring. But before hiring a flooring contractor to install or repair hardwood flooring, it’s important to know both its advantages and disadvantages.

Wood is a living, breathing product that contracts and expands as it releases and absorbs moisture. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Danica K. of Independence, Ohio)

Natural variations in your hardwood flooring reflect the time of year, as humidity levels rise and fall.

While there are still those who prefer the more traditional narrow planks, the wide plank trend is gaining momentum. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Bruce N. of New York)

What’s old is exciting and new as antiqued finishes and whitewashing techniques perk up wood flooring choices.

The finish you choose can provide the protection your floor needs, but it also should add something special to the appearance. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Ken M. of Albany, New York)

Angie's Answers

From the wall street journal online:

"Etiquette and tipping experts agree that tipping a contractor and his employees isn't expected because contractors offer to do a job for you at a specific price. Any extra money they would want would be built into their bid. Also, it's a business relationship rather than one where they are performing a personal service for you like a waiter or a maid. But if the employees do extra jobs around the house, then experts say it is appropriate to tip a cash amount equivalent to the task; "tip gifts" such as cookies and drinks can count. "The key to tipping is whether or not it was outside the scope of what was normally expected," says Mark Brenner, author of "Tipping for Success!"

My opinion is that a little bit of courtesy (snacks, drinks, expression of appreciation etc.) goes a long way and upon completion of their work you feel compelled by a job well done to offer a little extra in the form of a tip - go for it, but do not feel obligated. 
Agreed.  If you have existing cracking in porcelain you need to know the cause first.  I don't know of any reputable contractor that would dare install tile over existing tile.  Also, any manufacturer warranties for defects would be null due to improper installation.  Did the contractor offer this solution or did you ask for it?  The mear fact that he is agreeing to or offering it tells me you need to leave this guy for someone who knows what they are talking about before he does only half the job which will have to be redone in the near future, costing you more in the long run.

I get so many calls from customers that were talked into a "cheaper" way to do something only to find the work very sub-par.  The sad part is they are out the money they spent in the first place along with the additional amount I have to charge just to undo what the first contractor did before I can do it right.  This floor could end up costing you double what it should if it's not done right.

was punctual for estimate visit friendly and professional. Explained to us exactly what his crew would do and what to expaect. Set work date. Punctual, professional, courteous. Floors look great.

I emailed photos, measurements and very detailed information for a quote.

was incredibly professional, detailed and quick in getting back to me. His detail and responsiveness was second to none. A number of other providers either didn't respond to the request or sent a one sentence response back.
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
provided me spots on his schedule within a week to get the work done. We picked a date and he gave me a great checklist on how to be prepared to make things go smoothly.
His crew arrived on time, got to work, and did an amazing job to contain dust. In addition, they cleaned up after themselves to a level few contractors do. The
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
is flawless, they helped pick a stain that makes the floors look much more natural than what was on them before. The two coats of poly really make the floors shine and dazzle. In adition, they explained how to take care of them I the future and how to maintain them longer term.
There are likely cheaper providers out there, but I firmly believe that this vendor is worth the price. Save yourself the headaches that I had of contacting others and just give
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
a call. You'll have a vendor you can trust to get the job done right!

This is the second time I used Mihail to redo a bedroom for me. The second time went as well if not better than the first. He was able to accommodate my schedule and was over to do the job less than a week from when I contacted him. He and his worker went straight to work when they got there and never took a break until the job was done. The finished product was once again flawless. He offers great prices, great work and is one of the nicest young men I have had the pleasure to do business with. I highly recommend him.

I thought that using "
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
" was a good choice since it was recommended on this site. Boy was I wrong! After I left several messages for
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
about my situation, we finally had an appointment set for 1/13/15. At the time he was supposed to be there, he called to say that he had to go pick up tools and arrived about an hour late. I showed him where several boards needed to be replaced due to water damage. He said that he could take care of it for $165. I thought that the appointment that day was just for an estimate - but he was ready to do the work right then and there. So I thought - this is GREAT! Again was I wrong......
After determining that we could not replace the laminate pieces due to color matching,
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
came up with the idea to swap pieces out along the wall with the pieces that had buckled. That way, the seam would be against the wall and you wouldn't see it under the molding. This really was a great idea and theoretically one that should have worked well. However, within a couple of weeks these boards buckled at the same place in the floor as well. I reached out for

on 2/6/15 to let him know (sent photos as well) what happened and asked him to call me the following week to come out and see it. He said "Yes Maam, I will call Monday 2/9/15. I never heard from him and called him twice that week asking for him to get in touch with me. This too never happened. On 2/17/15 I sent

a text asking him why I hadn't heard from him and wanted to make sure he stood behind his work. He sent me a text back saying he would be at my house on Friday 2/20/15 at 11am. The day before the appointment (2/19/15)

sent me a text asking if he could move my appointment to Monday 2/23/15 at 2pm. I let him know that would be fine but let's move an hour later to 3pm. He said that would work fine. Well- Monday rolls around and 7 minutes before he is supposed to be here, he sends me a text and said that there was a death in his family and could he move the appointment to Thursday 2/27. We decided on 10am. His last words were "OK, I WILL BE THERE." Thursday came and went and

Our hardwood floors had been sanded and finished several years earlier and were in need of a
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
and coat to bring the shine back out. I emailed
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
Brown and a couple of other contractors and asked for a guestimate cost per square foot to do the job.
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
was very responsive and gave me a very reasonable guestimate by email for
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
and 2 coats of polyurethane. The other contractors did the same.
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
followed up with phone calls to make sure I got his email and to see if I needed any other info. Because of his professional manor, responsiveness, Angie list recommendations and fair guestimate, I decided to ask him to come over and give a firm quote for the job. He was accommodating and on time. I had already measured the square footage and he took my word for it. I got a written quote for the job that evening and the cost per square foot was less than the original guestimate and he could begin as soon as I wanted. Since the house was empty he started it on Sat and finished with the second coat the next day. He kept me informed of the schedule and kept to it. The floors look great! It was a pretty straight forward job but my expectations were exceeded. The entire experience could not have gone better.

Went well.
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
arrived on time, talked about what I wanted, measured and provided a quote before he left. He was kind enough to offer some advice on a carpet removal job I have to take on as well. His pricing was really good. I just felt a bit of a better connection with another provider so decided not to use him.

This process went so well and we are 110 percent pleased. We had had oak floor installed when our home was built 30 years ago and it was done by
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
so we figured why not call them to add more oak flooring? We are SO glad we did! Everyone raves about our stairs and landing now. We could not be happier with the outcome. We can see why they are still in business after all these years. We got a great price due to the winter schedule being slower. We are totally in awe of the craftsmanship and detail in this job. HIGHLY recommend them for this. Also, the flooring that was installed for us 30 years ago is in top shape, we could not be more pleased with it also. If you want something to last far into the future in your home, go with
Athens Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
! We are just sorry we did not do the entire thing 30 years ago, but we were young and only did what we could afford on the new home!! But I think after years of carpet being there, and how we disliked that, we should have made room in the budget for it because the oak flooring makes the whole house and will last!! Thanks so much!!!
- Gary L.

Majors did an excellent job. While their installation cost was slightly higher than another company, they were able to get the exact flooring we wanted. The price difference was perhaps ten cents/sq ft more--not a significant difference considering the items included in their price vs those not included in the second company's bid. The cost for the flooring was significantly less than a third company I had contacted--turns out Majors supplies the third company. In addition the third company wanted to charge $3/sq ft for the underlayment which can be purchased for about fifty cents/sq ft! Majors' representative, installers and billing

were easy to work with, answered all our questions, came back to take care of a minor seam problem, no questions asked. And unlike many flooring companies I checked with, did not require an upfront deposit! They also did not charge a travel fee even though we live on the outskirts of Lexington and they were coming from Danville.
