After making the decision last year to invest in new flooring in our 10-year-old house, my husband and I checked out a half dozen carpet and flooring stores in Anchorage, including Lowe's, Giant Don's, Sav-on Floors, and Curtis and Campbell. The big box stores had limited inventory and we were not impressed by or confident in the knowledge or integrity of their sales staff, let alone their installation contractors. We liked the selection at Curtis and Campbell, but couldn't connect with their installer. Finding the perfect product for our radiant heat floors was overwhelming, and it was complicated by the layout of the main living area and the many stairs connecting the lower level with the upstairs. Months went by. We researched websites, read reviews, compared costs, and finally checked Angie's List. There we learned about Forbess Flooring in Wasilla. The reviews on Angie's List gave us the incentive to investigate the business, but it was Dewey, the owner, who won us over. He has been in the flooring business all of his life, so he has a thorough understanding of the products he sells and has a lifetime of experience installing various materials. I'm not sure what impressed me the most, the fact that he was a man of his word, fair in his pricing, took pride in his work or cleaned up after each day's work. The fact is, all of these things are important when you're investing in a home improvement. Dewey's son, Chris, also was easy to work with, and a great help in coordinating our schedules. I am a picky, skeptical consumer, but I recommend Forbess Flooring without reservation. Dewey and Chris have a business they care about, and lucky for us they were good at it.
