Recent Review: The service went great. Two technicians came out for the job. They were punctual and efficient workers. They were able to move the appliances from the kitchen. They let us know if they were going to be late to the appointment. They were very courteous and great at explaining what they were doing.  It was a difficult and labor intensive project, but they did a fantastic job. They had to rip up old vinyl and repair some cracks in the concrete flooring. He also had to repair 2 wooden thresholds. They completed the project in 2 days. The flooring looks perfect and I would definitely use this company again.

Recent Review: Anthony at Georgia Floors was super to deal with and provided excellent communication and knowledge. Ted Hammond was expert and installed floors beautifully. Floors were 4-6-8 random width, so really took someone with lots of experience. He was great on prep, removal, constantly cleaning, and ending with hand rubbing over entire area-- impressive.

Vinnys Home Repair Unlimited
Recent Review: Vinny was punctual and polite to the tenant in the home.  As stated before this particular bathroom is handicapped accessible so the flooring was angled for drainage rather than flat. Vinny had to work hard to get the current toilet bowl off and build up the area so it would sit right on the specially installed floor after the seal was repaired. All ofthe work was completed professionally and the area was cleaned after the work was completed. This was my second experience with Vinny on a water leak and I would hily recommend him.

Recent Review: The work was of good quality. The flooring was Wilson-Art. They were on top of it and used a special glue that is made for wet environments which they used when laying the floor in the bathroom. The sales guy was the owner, he was very friendly and easy to work with. The crew was neat, clean and showed up on time. They did the work properly and left with no issues.

We were highly satisfied. Tawnya the sales rep was great to work with. Pricing was less than for similar laminate at the big box stores. We really liked the fact the flooring was displayed on skids and you could see the how it looked for a 7 x 4 foot (approx) size area; much easier to visualize what it would look like in our home. This made it much easier to go back a forth between different flooring types on skids to compare different flooring to narrow our choice. We considered wood and laminate, but went with laminate because of the durability. We moved to FL from up north where we had hardwood, but it can be easility damaged via scratches and stains, and requires more maintenance and potential refinishing. Installer (Tim) was excellent and we could tell he had high standards for the quality of installation. He and his assistant were incredibly hard workers and I don't think they took breaks. They installed 700sq ft and completed the job in 13 hours (a day and a half). Labor cost was $1.50 per SF, and they moved the furniture (we moved everything but the large, heavy furniture to the garage, including moving drawers into the garage). One of the big box stores told us the installers would not move furniture. While there were a two cases where we expected to hear from them by phone, and communication could have been a little better, this is nitpicking and pales in comparison to what mattered most - a high quality job, which we got. We could not be happier with the finished product, and a couple of weeks after installation we still comment on how happy we are with the quality of the work. We would absolutely go directly back to them the next time we install flooring, and ask for Tawnya and for Tim as the installer. Highly recommend anyone consider flooring to go with them.

Our initial impression of Ed Thorpe was a good one.  He gives a friendly, easy-to-get-a-long with type of first impression.  I was excited to give him the job.  I liked him! Once he got started, he gave  a few updates expressing concern with the timeline. He knew we were being moved by a company and had little control over our move date.  When he became very concerned about the date we were being moved,  we went through a major hassle to have our move date pushed by a few days.  We personally arrived in Florida the morning before the moving company.  We were excited to see the house but when we got to it, Ed had just put another coat of stain down.  So, the floors were wet; we couldn't walk on them and could only see the very entrance.  The room that had floors installed was upstairs so we couldn't see it at all as the first floor of the house is all wood.  But, being trusting people and Ed being a likable guy, he asked for the other 50% we owed him (upon completion) and we gave it to him --- even though we hadn't seen the majority of his work, he hadn't installed the carpet runner yet (because he ran out of time), and he hadn't done the touch up painting on the baseboards.  The next morning we were able to walk on the floors just before the moving company arrived. .... The broken steps hadn't been repaired (a danger to everyone) and the WRONG floors had been installed in the upstairs bedroom (we had ordered 6" boards and 3" boards were installed), and the stain DID NOT MATCH the rest of the floors.  And.....WE HAD ALREADY PAID HIM (big sigh, learn from us, please).  So we called Ed - he came by and was sorry.  He eventually admitted his mistake but blamed it on the place he got the wood from for giving him the wrong size (you'd think he'd notice?).  He promised he'd "make it right".  He said the wood stained differently because it was a different age or type or something (again, you'd think, this being his professional career, that he would know how to correct that or would have warned us ahead of time).  As for the rest of the floors that got refinished, it was an okay job.  You can see the marks from the sander under the stain, and there are a few spots that somehow have no stain at all (which I don't understand, like drip-sized spots).  We were so distracted by the totally wrong floor upstairs that we never even complained about these "smaller" problems.  Anyway, weeks go by and, even though I was constantly prodding Ed, we never got any samples of the right boards for the upstairs room, a painter never did touch-up paint on the baseboards, the steps didn't get fixed, and the carpet runner was still not installed.  Ed is always friendly, and ALWAYS has an excuse.  But, we'd already paid him and were clearly not a priority anymore!  About 4 weeks later a guy did come to install the carpet runner.  Around the 6 week later point, and after several "I'm dropping off samples tomorrow", "I'll have them next Wednesday" etc etc...we tell Ed we want him to take the floor up in the bedroom and give us a refund for it.  But, he didn't have the money to refund it and wanted to do a payment plan to refund us (we were pretty sure we couldn't count on that).  When he offered a deal to redo the one bedroom and put floors down in two others that needed it (for a bit more money of course), against our better judgement we decided to give him another chance.  Honestly, he really did seem sorry (he had loads of excuses too; but I'm a forgiving person and started to think...you know, everyone has bad luck, hard times, etc...maybe he's being truthful?)  You've got to remember, he's a likable guy!  Anyway, we were out of town for 10 days and he said it would ALL be done by the time we were back in town (the new floors and the painting).  When we came back in town he hadn't done a SINGLE thing at our house.  Ed of course had a lot of excuses why nothing was done -- but after a while, we really got tired of the excuses.  So, we gave him an ultimatum date for total completion or total refund.  He agreed to the ultimatum and even said he'd add quarter round to our base boards for free to "make it right".  It was a nice gesture, but also done in a sub-par manner with a lot of little mistakes and whatnot.  He did "finish" by the date, I guess, but the workmanship is so disappointing.  Perhaps the biggest disappointment is that the new floors he installed and stained from start to finish are "rough".  I cannot push a mop over them without getting it snagged; it's uncomfortable to walk barefooted on.  We didn't really realize their roughness until I went to mop up the dust (and after we paid him again).  I sent Ed an email expressing our disappointment and never heard back from him.  It's just as well, I suppose.  But we've certainly learned our lesson, several times.  I hate writing bad reviews and I feel guilty writing this (even though I feel justified at the same time).  Ed started the work at our house mid-Oct 2014 and didn't finish until mid-Jan 2015 (a job that was supposed to be done in 2 weeks).  If he'd done a professional and quality job I most likely wouldn't have written this.... we had to chase him for every little thing and still got shoddy work in the end. I wished several times that  someone had written this before we'd hired him; so here you go.

BEast Coast Flooring
The job went fairly well.  There was a team of three who did the installing.  Not entirely pleased with the initial install process but end result was good.   While some leveling was done, I believe more should have been done since I can feel minor giving of the floor in certain areas. But it is possible that they are within the given tolerances.   Not entirely sure that the underlayment was properly installed.  Overlap should exist to prevent moisture from coming in contact with the flooring which would cause damage.  Carelessness on the part of one of the installers resulted in foil being ripped at many different locations and the potential lack of proper sealing of seams exist.  He made no effort to seal it with tape.   Spacers between the wall and flooring not only act as a spacer but also provides firmness to allow boards/joints to be snugged up with some gentle taps.  Failure to use spacers caused sliding of flooring and minor gaps in some joints.  (These were subsequently fixed by follow up visits).   On the plus side:   1.  The installers moved all the furniture (excluding equipment) and placed felt pads (provided by owner) on the bottom of all furniture before they were placed back onto the new floors.   2.  They also trimmed the bottom of a couple doors to allow for proper space to clear the new flooring (Note:  I had to request this specifically when I purchased the flooring otherwise I would have been charged extra for it.).   3.  They also removed all the base boards, cleaned them up and repainted them before they replaced them.  This allowed for the baseboard to sit on top of the flooring giving it a much more professional and finished look (Note:  Unfortunately, I think they use a cheaper quality of paint than I had used.  The finish was not as glossy and white.  It looked duller).     The team leader returned three times to resolve issues and all were resolved to my satisfaction.   Overall, I'm pleased with the final results.  The floors look great. In reference to my rating on quality, the quality of flooring is excellent.  The rating only comes down because of the work performed by one of the installers which caused the majority of the issues/concerns mentioned above.   In reference to my rating on professionalism, the professionalism of the team leader was excellent.  The professionalism of the other installer left a lot to be desired.  It is my belief that a true professional would care about the entire process starting with the proper installation of the underlayment and then using the appropriate tools to install the flooring.  To be clear, there was nothing wrong with how any of the installers interacted with me.  They were kind and polite.  There was only the concern on how the one installer performed his job.   Recommendation:  No matter who you have install flooring, ask ahead of time and upon arrival to do the job (1) how they are going to determine if leveling is required, (2) how they install the underlayment to ensure proper seal between all joints and (3) if any trim work needs to be done on the bottom of the doors that it be included within the price.
