My experience with A Step Ahead Flooring was amazing. The experience from beginning to end was seamless. We had old flooring refinished and new flooring added at the same time. Everything blended in perfectly. The finished floor has exceeded my expectations many times over. I find it rare these days to find a company that takes such pride in their work and focused on the customer as A Step Ahead F...

Refinished the white oak hardwood floors in our foyer and kitchen. We changed the stain color from a medium maple to darker Jacobean; went from semi-gloss finish to satin finish. Our floors now look better than when they were new! Our experience with A Step Ahead Flooring was great. Highly recommend.

Chris and his team were very punctual. They did a great job removing and disposing the old floor. The new floor was installed and finished within a few days and it looks beautiful. They installed a new oak vent to match the floor, and Chris spent extra time sealing the duct that feeds the vent. I recommend A Step Ahead, and will call them next time we need floors replaced or refinished.

Chris Cosimo and his team did an excellent job! Tom, the estimator, was easy to work with and provided an estimate that was very close to the final bill. The existing carpet and laminate was removed. New hardwood was installed, sanded and finished. After the hardwood was down, they put sample stain colors on the floor to allow me to better choose a color. They replaced old metal air vents with woo...

A friend recommended A Step Ahead Flooring after they completed work at her house. From the first visit for an estimate, to the day the job was complete, we felt the team was very responsive to our needs. They paid attention to the details, met the schedule and followed up promptly. We love our beautiful new flooring and would call them first for any new projects we might have.

The floors looked very nice when complete. However, there was more collateral damage to the baseboards and trim than we had been led to expect. There was also stain splashed on the walls which we needed to repaint.

A step ahead did an excellent job on our project! Everything looks amazing. All the guys were knowledgeable, professional, punctual and hard working. So rare to find theses days. I felt comfortable having them in our home wether I was there or not. You really got the feeling they wanted to do a good job for you. Can’t say enough good things about them- we would hire them again in an instant.
