Recent Review: Javier did an excellent job in refinishing all the floors in our house. He was very responsive and got the job done in the limited time we had available. I would definitely use him again.

Recent Review: In general it went really well. Everyone I met was personable and happy to answer questions. There were a couple of communication things that tripped us up slightly but worked out in the end, the office person promised that they could get the furniture back on Saturday and when I confirmed that with the guys it turned out to be more trouble than I was expecting based on the information I had been given. Despite that they worked extra hard to get everything back in place on Saturday for me. The only reason I rated the quality as a B is that the baseboards and the floor are not flush. I don't totally know if this is just a result of the way the existing floors are and what it would have taken to fix, but I would have loved to have a conversation about it. Other than that, which feels minor to me, it was a great experience.

Recent Review: Beautiful product, good prices. Only issue was a delay in shipping of several weeks due to inventory. This delay caused issues with scheduling on a whole-house renovation and it would have been quite useful to know about upfront, rather than having to call them repeatedly for updates. When the flooring finally arrived, weeks late, it was beautiful and in very good shape. I would use them again, but I would order much earlier than needed to allow for any delays.

Recent Review: We came across McCurley's flooring center completely at random. We ended up working with Oscar who was a consummate professional. He offered us very fair pricing on both quality hardwood flooring and carpeting, as well as reasonable pricing on quality labor. He had the job done in a timely manner as promised. His installation crew worked hard, and was very professional. Our home looks amazing after this project. Aside from a few manufacturer product delays, we had no problems working with McCurley's. Oscar was very easy to work with, very responsive and I highly recommend his services!

Recent Review: We visited Perfect Flooring's showroom and reviewed the bamboo flooring they had available. We really wanted Cali Bamboo, which was not a product they carried regularly. However, they contacted Cali Bamboo and were able to negotiate a better price per square foot than we were able to get directly from Cali Bamboo's website. The installation prcess took a little longer than anticipated because of the difficulty in removing the old hardwood floor. They went above and beyond -- working with us to repain the stairs in addition to all of the work in installing the bamboo flooring. The finished product looks absolutely wonderful. Perfect Flooring was recommended to us by a contractor friend who is also very pleased with the work they did for him on his house in Half Moon Bay. Prices for installation were the best we could find.

Recent Review: The hardwood floor refinishing was stellar. The floor looks great. Initially, we thought the two bedrooms had hardwood underneath carpet, but later discovered that the floors were actually laminate. Joan did an excellent job of keeping my original (and very short) timeline over the holidays, and keeping expenses low. The new floor installation the team did was excellent. Every time I look at it, I love it; visitors are genuinely surprised to learn that it's vinyl, not hardwood. Slaughterbeck Floors has an excellent selection of flooring and expertise.

Recent Review: The owner, Ed Lacina, came to the house to provide the estimate. He inspected the existing flooring, discussed options for replacement, and provided me with three estimates for different flooring options. The estimates were: A) Laminate flooring: $2,800 B) L V T flooring (midgrade): $3,200 C) L V T flooring (high grade): $3,475 The prices included floor prep, removal and disposal of existing flooring, removal and reset of furniture and appliances, and installation of new baseboard through the kitchen and family room. The flooring chosen was a high grade L V T in a marble pattern that fit the room perfectly. The materials arrived within two weeks and installation was scheduled approximately three weeks from the date of the estimate. The house resident had removed the furniture before the installer got there, so he got right to work. The job took 1.5 days to complete, and the installer was very friendly and professional. The resident didn't let him reset the furniture because she wanted me (the homeowner) to come inspect the flooring first. I didn't get a price break even though the furniture movement was included in the price of the job, but that's fair given the contract was firm fixed price. The flooring was installed to specifications and greatly improved the look of the room. The baseboards added a nice accent to the room given there were none prior to this installation. Although I'm not going to have the work done at this time, per my request, Mr. Lacina also gave me estimates to replace the carpet in the living room, dining room, and master bedroom. Like the family room/kitchen area, these are large rooms and the prices for that work were quite reasonable.

Recent Review: The materials and install were excellent - I am very happy with both of those.  It was the customer service that was a bit lacking.  The purchase went well, there were no issues there and the salesperson was very helpful.  I had to wait about 2 weeks to get an appointment which is understandable but not ideal.  And then the install got rescheduled last minute due to staffing issues which is unavoidable but again, not ideal.  It was the pre-installation period that was a bit annoying.  Because part of the job involved laying some flooring in my tenant's apartment, I needed advanced notice on how to prepare prior to install as I was informed that there were some pre-installation things that I needed to know or do and needed to coordinate with my tenant.  After contacting me several time about payment and after I made the payment, the person in charge of installation was very slow to respond or at other times did not respond at all to my inquiries regarding preparation.  This happened for both the original schedule and the reschedule so it felt like I had called and emailed a lot.  I was at a loss as to how simple customer service protocol of returning calls was missing from this small business which seemed to have so much else going for it.  In the end, there actually wasn't any preparation required but it was annoying thinking there was and that I needed to know and do something.

Reviews in El Granada to Install Cork Flooring

AArmstrong Carpet & Linoleum
We were interested in installing a cork floor in our kitchen. Armstrong Carpet and Linoleum carries cork floor products by Wicanders, one of the more popular cork distributor's. We were asked to meet with Steve (the owner) in the showroom so we could discuss details and look at samples. After our showroom meeting, Steve came to our house (within days) to take measurements and give us an estimate. He brought the samples we had been considering so we could see what they looked like in our kitchen. Steve was pleasant and professional during all our meetings and phone conversations. Our floor was scheduled to take two weeks to arrive, but came early and was installed early. We love our new "ruby red" cork kitchen floor!

Doug and his guy removed the old carpet to find that our slab in the family room was poured by a total knucklehead.  It was very uneven and wavy and our floating cork floor could not be installed with the slab in that condition.  Doug leveled out the slab without breaking the bank (he only charged us for material, but not labor on half the bags of concrete) and made it work.  The floor turned out great.

They were fabulous! They would do any kind of flooring. They were the very best experience that I had in the whole remodel of my kitchen. I went with them because I liked the cork flooring. They gave me a complete estimate for every option that was available. Every aspect was covered in the price. They gave me a complete print out and I always knew what we had been discussing, because there is always so many options when choosing the type of product to use. Everything was handled first class. They were excellent! They were tip-top in every category! They were such a good experience.

Taking out old floor was difficult -- it had been nailed down -- and time consuming but all the work was done well and one time. They took extra care moving refrig, dishwasher and large cupboard out AND  at no added cost plugged up some holes to keep mice and rats out AND secured my cupboard so it wont fall over during an earthquake.

It went great. Todd and Zach were quick, timely, clean, clear and communicative. They knew all about how to best work with my dated situation (original floors were still in from the 1960s). They are true professionals and know their trade very well.

Here's the good news: The price was great and so was the installation. Lowe's contracts out the installation, and the guys who installed it did a great job. It looks great. They arrived when they said they would and they finished on time. They were easy to get a hold of and follow up with. The installers were great. The Bad news: The problem was Lowe?s. You needed go through them to get everything done and that took forever. It took a month to actually get everything setup to do the job. They were slow with everything, and you had to call back repeatedly. They even gave me the wrong items when I showed up to pick up the parts. They delivered a good product at a low price, but every other part of the experience that took place AT Lowe's was painful. I would go back again, because the price was great and the installation was good, but I would go back knowing to expect pain and to build in a lot of time. If another place was close in price, then goodbye Lowe's.

The price was good, the worker was on time and considerate. It looks a bit uneven to me but time will tell. So far I'm mostly satisfied.

AMaster Mart Floor Covering
We're super happy with our cork floors, installed by Master Mart. I provided Jerry with a design, and he worked with us to make it a reality. The crew on the site worked really well together. Ramone was the foreman. He was sharp. He would think through the details, get the other two workmen started on installation, and once they were doing the right thing Ramone would move on to the more complicated details of the job. He even fixed one poorly thought out door frame (originally done by another contractor) to look much better. I think it's really important to have a foreman whom you trust on the job site for most of the duration, since tons of little decisions come up throughout a work day. We're very happy with the installation, and would recommend them even to people doing fairly complex jobs like ours.

Todd and his son Zach did an absolutely amazing job on installing our cork flooring. He was very thorough when he came to give a quote, he caught many things that the other installers had missed. I had several follow up questions and he was quick to respond. He was very punctual, neat, very very precise, extreme attention to detail and involved us in every step of the installation. When it came time to clean up he and Zach left our house cleaner than when they found it. Todd and Zach do exceptional work, if you need any flooring installed Stephens Flooring is definitely the installer you want. Could not be happier.
