It was a real pleasure to work with Mike from Calabrese Flooring. He was very respectful, informative and knowledgeable. Mike refinished my hardwood floor in a timely manner and it looks amazing. He is excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.Aug 15, 2018Verified
Calabrese Flooring was by far the best contractor I’ve ever hired. We just finished a 3 month long full renovation of our house and Mike (the owner and sole worker of the company) did our floors, stair treads/risers, balusters, and trim in our house (~1400 sqft of floor). From start to finish Mike was responsive, professional, and communicated with great detail what to expect in regards to timeline and price. Just before our project began Mike had a family emergency that took him away from work for several days, delaying the project he was working on just before ours. The delay on this previous project was going to delay the start of our project past the date we were going to install our kitchen (we wanted the floors in before the kitchen). Mike was awesome though and was able to negotiate shared time with his previous client and us to get our floor installed before our Kitchen would be, avoiding any delays on our project. Mike was able to get the majority of our main floor installed in three days and it looked incredible. He definitely focuses on detail as exemplified by how well he was able to end the floor against our fireplace. Mike laid the vinyl flooring from the opposite wall towards the fireplace, making the cut at the brick very difficult to keep close, but when he was done we decided it didn’t even need trim due to how small the gap between the floor and the brick is. At the end of each day Mike communicated what he expected to get done the next day and how much he’d done the current day as well as clarified any questions there may have been about the upcoming work. This really made us comfortable with the work he was doing and avoided confusion and worries since I was at work for most of the installation and couldn’t be there for in-the-moment questions. We were so happy with Mike’s work on our floors we asked him to continue his work onto staining our barn door and installing our balusters. After making sure his other customers were taken care of he quickly made it back to our house to install beautiful balusters, trim, and finish staining our barn door. With each of the projects Mike worked on he paid special attention to detail. The railing on our stairs meets perfectly with the wall. The gaps between the steps and the walls are near unnoticeable and the staining on our barn door is perfectly even. I will 100% be hiring Mike in the future for staining and floor installation.May 21, 2018Verified
Mike from Calabrese Flooring did such a wonderful job on my hardwood floors. He provided options and was very creative with some of the wood work. I am very pleased with the way the floor came out. I am very happy with Mike's responsiveness to my needs. I highly recommend his services. He is very reasonable and did not cut corners.Jul 24, 2018Verified
Michael completed my floors about 9 months ago and they are still amazing. He was super professional throughout the whole experience. He recommended luxury laminate floors which came out great and I always get so many compliments on them. He gave me a great price and finished in a timely manner. If you need your floors done please hire Michael!Jun 15, 2018Verified
Calabrese Flooring is a marvelous company with the finest installer anyone could ask for. We had both stairs and wood floors installed. Mike the owner was respectful, very helpful and clean-up was thorough. I don't hesitate to recommend him to everyone who desires quality products and ease of installation. Thank you Mike!!!Jul 6, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Its all by piece rate. I go off of square footage. I am vary competitive with pricing I want my customers to get a good deal with top craftsmanship!!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Meeting new people is always a good opportunity for growth. I like to start by coming to the location to check the structure and look at project options. Talk about what needs to be accomplished and what questions the customer may have. After we come to an agreement on what the job includes I ultimately pick up the product up and let the material sit in the house for at least 5 days depending on material, times may vary! When the products moisture is a acceptable, installation will than take place. I will not accept payment until my customer and I walk and scope the entire project! I aim for absolute perfection! I always make sure the customer is happy before wrapping up any job I have done.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a certificate in PST professional sanding training from Lagler here in Denver.
