I rarely write reviews, but we were so impressed by Rick that I had to share our positive experience. In short, Rick is the real deal, a rare professional with experience that shows as soon as you start speaking with him. We recently had water damage to the hardwood floors in our home and had several contractors bid on the job. Like most people; we screen potential contractors by asking around and checking Yelp, Angie's List and Houzz. Every contractor that we called was licensed, bonded and had a well established record of excellent reviews. My point is that we have learned over the years to carefully screen contractors for any sizeable project and amongst the best rated flooring companies in the business; Rick stood out for his knowedge and integrity. While the other two contractors were courteous, I could tell that they were essentially "goal seeking" to completely re-lay our first level floor. Rick came out and without us giving any info, he immediately identified the original manufacturer of the hardwod flooring, the type, how long ago the floor was originally installed (previous owner) and whether it was possible to sand and refinish. In short, Rick could have easily told us that we needed to re-lay new hardwood floor like the other contractors did, but instead he pointed out that we could interlace, sand and refinish and the floor would look good as new. The remarkable part is that MAC and Rick specialize in laying new floors, not sanding and refinishing and thus by being honest, he gave up a ~ $20K job. Not only was his integrity a remarkable rarity, he also contacted his suppliers to ask for referrals for top sanding & refinishing companies and located a supplier that has the material we need. We've had some bad experiences with contractors early on as homeowners and Rick's integrity and willingness to help even though there was nothing in it for him was a rare breath of fresh air. If like us, you value companies with integrity and knowledge, then Rick is certainly worth a call. You will quickly recognize his knowledge and experience in speaking with him. I only wish I could find people like him for all trade specialties.
