Happy Client in Portola Valley

“Very pleased. They were timely, professional, pleasant, and the final product was better than I expected…”
M. Chessman
Portola Valley, CA

hardwood floor insaller reviews“Our floors were damaged by a flood under our home. We called quite a few places for estimates, but many places did not bother to call us back. Others warned us that we would have to move out of our home for seven days, which was not acceptable to us, since we have aging pets who need medication. Elegant Floors was the one company who offered the two non-negotiables we were looking for. First, we did not have to move out. In fact, there was only one day that we had to negotiate entrance to our upstairs via a window (funny). Secondly, there was NO DUST! We didn’t really believe this claim, but REALLY!!! THERE WAS NO DUST!! Our cleaners were even shocked by how easy their jobs were post floor resurfacing!”
