Recent Review: In essence, we are very unhappy with the condition our house was left in when the work was completed. One employee had 13 years experience (Aaron), another worker had less than a year's experience and the third worker was the brother of Aaron's girlfriend. I would be curious to know if all the workers were bonded, so I stayed home the entire time they did the work. The flooring was installed properly, in my opinion, and we have no issue with that aspect. The side skirts appear to be acceptable if you don't look too closely. The real catastrophe here is the painting and installation of the baseboards. When we had flooring installed in the living room last year, the baseboards were painted in the garage, allowed to dry overnight and then installed and caulked the next day. But this time the employee nailed/glued the baseboards to the walls FIRST, then proceeded to tape them and  paint them INSIDE the house. When he finished, he said to us, "You can just pull off the tape tomorrow morning." As he was preparing to leave he swept all the sawdust into the street because the experienced worker had already left with the shop vacuum. My neighbors were extremely upset about the mess, as were we. So we phoned the worker and asked him to return the next day to remove the tape and clean up the mess. When he returned as scheduled, he pulled off the tape and exposed the fact that paint had "bled" under the tape onto the stairs and walls. He scraped the paint off the stairs with a credit card and then told us we could "touch up" the wall paint, which is khaki brown, by ourselves. Why? We didn't mess up the walls. He did! Besides, the walls were painted 3 years ago and the touch-up paint may no longer match. Plus, there was no caulking of the baseboards. To add insult to injury, Mr. Collins first estimate for labor was $1700. On day 2 of the project he announced we would have to pay $300.00 more because he had made errors in his first calculation. So that brought the total cost to $2000.00. I rarely write reviews. Life is good and I try to stay on the positive side. But this grievous issue I felt should be posted for other consumers to be aware. Angies List is where clients look for competent, trustworthy, experienced professionals. Dave Collins Flooring did not meet this criteria. Consider yourself forewarned. UPDATED 6/25/15:  We contacted  Mr. Collins regarding the shoddy workmanship shortly after completion of the job not expecting any consideration for correcting the painting blemishes.  We actually did not want them to return to our home and attempt to correct the painting overruns, but he insisted on making good on the job and we accepted his offer to return, but only if he sent his top installer, Jeremiah  to complete the work. Jeremiah returned with another co-worker experienced with painting and proceeded to touch up both the khaki brown wall paint and the white skirting and baseboard.  They even touched up the front entry wall banister post where the paint had been wearing over the past several years.  Jeremiah had done much of the original bamboo flooring in our living room and stairway to the dining area approximately one year ago. He did an excellent job which is why we asked him to return to correct the problems from the current job.  The touch up painting now makes the entire job look much better and finished.  We appreciated Mr. Collins offering to complete the job thoroughly and professionally. Based on the follow up work done, we would now wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Dave Collins flooring to others seeking a professional, quality hardwood floor installer.

Recent Review: Ted was the perfect pick for my remodeling job.  1) He was working with a tight window to get all of the messy things done and the floors down before the movers arrived.  The floors were down and the movers were able to unload everything.   2) I was 200 miles away.  Later a neighbor mentioned how impressed he was with how conscientious Ted was, arriving at 7 in the morning and working until 6 or 7 at night.    As Ted continued finishing up the details after I moved in, I was impressed with how important it was to him to do the job correctly and that I was happy with the results.  I now have a beautiful home thanks to his superb craftsmanship.  Also it was within my budget.

Vicente returned my phone inquiry promptly, was flexible with my schedule for an estimate, and showed up on time (late on a Saturday afternoon!!) to look the place over. He worked up a price on the spot, which was right in line with what I expected it to cost. I have been a small contractor myself (electrical, general), so I know a bit about what it takes to install these projects, and I know they're not cheap, plus Vicente was traveling from Santa Maria to Los Osos to do this, so some extra in gas and time was necessary. Vicente is not cheap, nor should he be. He's a journeyman craftsman, in every sense. From set up, to clean up, advice on material, scheduling, and the finished product, he was great. I recommend him with the highest regard. You might have to wait a bit for your project, as I did, but it was well worth it. However, as far as Lumber Liquidators, they were just average. Be aware that they WILL try to upsale you in a big way. Check around for your material, price and availability varies a good bit.
