Reviews in Minneapolis to Install Bamboo Flooring

ABecker Carpet and Flooring
Very professional - the estimate was to finish the project in four days, which they managed to do despite obstacles outside their control.  The work they did in a short amount of time was amazing; they did a great job!  The floor is beautiful.

Filipp and his crew were very supportive. Initially, when other contractors didn’t think the flooring could be done as requested, or with weeks delay, and not letting me source the material, Filipp came in right away, gave the estimate and was ready to work. They removed all carpeting and installed bamboo flooring throughout the house, including stair cases. The install went well, finishing on time, despite some logistic and install challenges.

There were a couple of issues working with them. The issues were around communication with Steve one of the co-owners, timeliness of the install and the floor vents. First around timeliness of the install. I had a two day install date scheduled for a Monday and Tuesday of the week. The Wednesday before Artistic Floors calls and asks if the date can be changed to Tuesday/Wednesday that week. I said fine. Then the Monday of the install week they call and say they cannot install for another week because the bamboo, which just came in that day, needs to acclimate to the temperature of the subfloor before install. I wasn't sure if that was true or not so I called the manufacturer, Ecotimber, and verified with them that that was in fact the case. What I have since learned is that all wood floors need to acclimate to the temperature of the subfloor prior to the install. So that makes me think Artistic Floors doesn't do a lot of wood installation because they did not plan for that when they scheduled an install date with me. For various reasons I needed to wait about 6 weeks before the install so they delivered the wood and it sat for 6 weeks until I could arrange another install time. To their credit, they did not hassle me about getting it installed. The second issue with timeliness is when the contractors came to install. They were scheduled to be at my house by 9:30am. I took the morning off work to be there. At 9:40 I called the store to see where they were and Steve said they were just loading the plywood into the truck. They reached my house by 10:30. When I spoke with the contractors they said they had something else going first thing in the morning prior to my job. My issue is just that someone from Artistic Floors could have called and said that the contractors were running late rather than having me call and check the status. After a day of install the second day was going to be around finishing some final boards and installing the trim. The contractors called earlier than I expected saying they were done and didn't have the trim. It went to another job. So I had to schedule another day for someone to come out and install the trim. To their credit, Steve came out on a Saturday to do the trim work. But he didn't install trim behind the refrigerator, which I guess is not a big deal because the refrigerator will always be there, but I think it speaks to completeness of the work. I didn't realize this until he left. I have cream colored cabinets in the kitchen. The trim he used was white. I realize that trim doesn't come in a cream color but it would have been nice to painted the trim prior to install. Another issue I had was with the floor vents. In the area where the floors was installed there are 3 floor vents. Per my quote I was to get "custom" vents. In fact, Steve took what was left of my bamboo after the install to have the vents custom made. Once I picked up the vents I realized that they may have been custom made but they were not custom fit. The opening for the vent was 12 1/2 x 2 5/8 and the inside vent cover was 11 1/2 x 2. The vent cover did not sit flush with the floor as you would expect most wood floor vents to fit. It is raised and the inside of the vent cover that was suppose to fit into the vent was smaller than the vent opening itself. I think Steve realized this and wanted to just give me the vent covers versus coming out and installing them. When I got them home I called him and told him the issue and he said he would try to think of a solution. After not hearing from him for almost 2 weeks, I called him back and he said, "Oh yea, thanks for the reminder." So if I wouldn't have followed through I don't think he would have done anything. He did come out and was able to glue some wood pieces to the inside mounting so it would grip the opening of the vent and stay in place. This was a solution that worked for two of the three vents. The third vent is in the kitchen right in the prep area where I would always be knocking it out of place so I left the metal vent in place. People who see the floor comment on the unusual vent covers so I would rather have had a flush mounted vent cover. I did call Ecotimber and they do not make vent covers, so I think Artistic Floors was trying to come up with a solution but I don't think they had used this vendor before to develop vent covers. Lastly, I thought communication was an issue. After I placed the order, I asked whether the floor would be glued or nailed and Steve said nailed because he had this great new nail gun. I had called Ecotimber and they said, with all things being equal, it was better to glue the floor rather than nail it. I told Steve about that and he basically grunted. I am not sure if he had never glued a floor and didn't want to. Or if he had this great new nail gun and that is why he wanted to use it but I could never get a reason why the floor would be nailed rather than glued. As I mentioned earlier, there was no communication when the initial contractors were over an hour late the first day on the job and Steve didn't follow through on my first concern about the floor vents, I had to call him to follow up on that. Overall, the floor itself does look good. I think the floor vents look odd, I would rather have them flush mounted and the white trim against the cream cabinets is a little odd as well. I would probably not use Ecotimber again since they don't make a floor vent for their product.

They were extremely knowledgeable, skilled, and professional. They were also punctual, and their estimate was accurate. They even worked hard to match the stain color of the toe kicks with our existing cabinets. Excellent work!

Amazing - I could not be happier. They did excellent work, came in a little bit under the price they quoted and finished right on time. They took great care to pick up their materials each night and keep it out of our way. I am looking for new projects for them to do at my house.

They put the wrong color quarter-round and when I contacted the manager, he said that we chose the color and that it was our problem. The threshold was installed correctly but we were not able to close our door properly. I contacted the manager about that and he said that it wasn't his problem. He sent out a guy to fix it, but he did not do a very good job and my door looks splintered at the moment. The manager of Flooring Expo did not tell me that I would be charged for this.

I went on lunch break to get quote. They had lots of selection for carpet and bamboo flooring. Teragreen, a high quality brand bamboo flooring, was for sale at the most reasonable price I've seen. Lots of carpet selection too. Corn made carpet for $3.50-4.50 sq ft. Total Estimate = 10K, 8K without bamboo install. Higher price than I was looking for, but if I had the money I would have been happy to give them my business. They were attentive, welcoming, and knowledge about all the flooring products in the store.

It turned out very well. The project was a challenge. He had some extra-hard engineered bamboo flooring, so it took them a little longer than they expected, but they did a great job. We paid a little more but we expect it to be worth the cost, because the floor came with a 25 year warranty from them. We were very happy with them.

I visited the showroom several times to look at samples, and Lisa let us bring a few samples to our home since we lived close by.  Lisa came out to measure and give an estimate, and it was right on.  Steve and another installer came to install the floor, and had the special equipment needed to install the extra hard bamboo flooring.  They were professional, quick, and detail oriented.  My only complete was that they didnt clean up the dust when they were done.  Steve had to track down matching vent covers, so he came out a few weeks later to install them, and also added a threshold piece that we requested without any extra charge.  I would hire them again.

Recent Review: Floors are beautiful.  Rhodes did a great job.  Between the second and the third coat of finish we scratched the floor in several spots putting in the appliances.  Before the final (3rd) coat they buffed out the scratches and now that the final coat is on, the floor looks flawless again. I've already been recommending to friends, and will definitely use again in the future.

Recent Review: We had an area of carpet in our basement replaced with a nice vinyl plank flooring (Braly LVT). They had all the carpet tore out and the new floor down in one day and the price always stayed where we were quoted. Anton was very helpful in the selection process and assisted us in obtaining a quality flooring product at a good value. The crew was professional and on time. The floor looks amazing.

Recent Review: Great experience. We need laminate kitchen floor repaired due to water damage. They were able to order the same flooring we had gotten 10 years ago. The installation was good and the floor looks wonderful. We are very happy and will look to them for future flooring needs. Friendly, professional, on time staff.

Recent Review: Metro Floors gave me the lowest bid for the work I needed done on a rental property of mine. I needed the carpet removed and laminate flooring put in to match some other laminate flooring in the house. Victor was very responsive and worked with both myself and the renter to find the right flooring and to arrange agreeable times for the work to be done. When it was completed, he promptly sent me pictures via text and it looked great. They really matched the previous flooring well. Couldn't have gone more smoothly. Thank you to Victor and his crew!

Recent Review: The entire process went very smoothly.  Everyone at VIP is very easy to work with and quick to respond to any issues or concerns.  Our new map flooring replaces carpet in a bedroom and hallway and the maple doors replace ancient flimsy mahogany doors.

Recent Review: Above All Flooring did an amazing job! They gave us great suggestions on the type of flooring we should consider and what would look great together. They were very accommodating to our broken up time frame. They ripped out the old flooring and fixed an area of broken subfloor. They then waited to come back for the installation of the new flooring so we could have the whole place painted. Everything turned out beautifully! We got numerous compliments on the flooring choices during the showings and open house. Great service and very nice.

Recent Review: Hopkins Carpet One is a wonderful business - right from the beginning I knew that everything would be done professionally and that I would be treated right. I had excellent help choosing the flooring color, and they kept me in the loop while things were scheduled. The pricing was fair, and I am so happy that I found this company!
