Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Preparation. Most jobs fail because of poor preparation of the subfloor (concrete slab), and most installers do a poor job at this. We invested in the proper equipment to shotblast the concrete to ensure a proper bond and warranty. Being productive, interacting with the homeowners, and having fun at the same time. I get to be creative, and I truly enjoy seeing a beautiful wood floor after we're done. I also do "the little things" that I know will make our clients happy.

We had our floors dine in January 2012 by Common Sense. The house that had original red oak (blond) wood flooring with considerable staining (most likely cat urine) throughout. So many boards were damaged that replacing them would've been so costly that Eric recommended we have them sanded and stained a darker color. We are very happy with the way they turned out- it looks beautiful and most of the stains are no longer visible- people compliment us on the floors all the time. It was a very good solution to a big problem. My only complaint was it seemed very expensive to us and there was not much wiggle room on the price. They were fast and worked with our tight timeline to get it done before we moved in.

Everything went very well. I got 3 or 4 estimates for installing my flooring. I chose to go with Eric not for price, although his price was reasonable... I went with Eric because he said he was picky with his work, and I am picky too. It turns out I made a good choice. He did a wonderful job installing my floors. I feel like he did it as well as he would have his own floor. He also used a material that goes down over the whole floor to help with sound, as the main living area is upstairs and I didn't want the sound of anyone walking upstairs when people are sleeping below. I forget what the material was called but it works and I'm glad I had him do that. He also had to fabricate my bullnose on the stairs, so I could save some money and not buy the manufacturers bullnose (due to sizing of it) I was amazed, it looks perfect!! Eric also was very responsive. It was a long process because as he had to work around my other contractors, we were pretty much doing a complete remodel. He was very accommodating and always answered my texts/calls right away. Also one of the contractors doing work in the house after my floors were done, gave Eric a big compliment, saying the floors felt solid and he liked them/installed nicely. He stated he had been in many homes that the floors didn't feel solid like that and the installers just slapped them down and left and didn't care. I was even more grateful then that Eric did my floors, just as I'm sure he would have done his own, and didn't just slap them down. It was a big investment and I'm glad I picked him, it was the best choice. I highly recommend Eric and Common Sense Flooring.

We always love it when a related craft-person has a positive statement to make about our work. I think this helps support the homeowner's original decision to hire us in the first place. Thank you so much, Eric

We are novice home-remodelers with no clue what we were doing -- we just knew we needed some new flooring. Eric and his assistant, Dan, were friendly, understanding, and gave knowledgeable suggestions and ideas. Eric installed engineered hardwood flooring in our hallway on the diagonal. He ground the concrete prior to installing the wood flooring, and used a dust extraction device to minimize the dust. Dan installed carpet with 8-pound padding in the other rooms. They were prompt, courteous, and worked cleanly. I was expecting more of a mess and more inconveniences, but they kept all that to a minimum. They completed the work in an excellent manner, and we ended up with a beautiful, high-quality, admirable flooring job. There were no surprises, and they were able to work around our budget. We are delighted with their work and highly recommend their services.

Eric and his assistant covered the inside of my house in a generous layer of dust and dirt because they didn't use a proper combination of plastic sheeting and a vacuum cleaner. It set off the fire alarm and drove my wife out of the house it was so bad. Several of the floor planks did not have enough adhesive, you can tell by the sound they make when you step on them. The wall trim wasn't finished, the calk around the door sill was a mess, and he didn't clean up. I would not hire him again and I would not recommend him.

We had a musty smell in one room in our home from water seepage. Eric shot blasted the concrete and then applied the sealer and the smell was gone. Great Job Eric.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The fear most people have is usually not based on the agreed price but the actual "unexpected add-ons" price. We do everything we can to stay on schedule and on budget. Our business strategy is not to come in low and double your labor cost.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Easy- We set up a phone conversation, exchange emails, schedule to see the scope of the work, narrow down the sample choices, estimate, agree on a price, order material, ship materials (deliver on-site), and schedule the installation.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Yes. I enjoy taking on-line college courses to learn (and keep up) with today's business environment. Such topics include business social media and e-commerce solutions. I also regularly attend regular workshops related to wood flooring and specific project adhesive/sealant applications.
