WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
BRAD D. September 2019
After spending a Saturday visiting most of the flooring places on Whitehorse road, our final stop was The Floor Centre. We walked in and were warmly greeted by Anthony one of the owners. We loved the engineered oak flooring they had, however we wanted something harder wearing like jarrah. Anthony pointed us to American Hickory - it had the amazing colour we wanted with the same hardness as Australian species. The quote he did for us was also much better priced than the other stores. Anthony was clearly extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of engineered wood flooring and had accurate and confident answers to every question we had.
Like most big decisions we went in a couple of times to discuss options - and spoke with Kara. Just like Anthony she was super knowledgeable and it was clear she had been in the flooring business for a number of years. Once we decided to go ahead Kara came out and measured the floor. She also kept us informed along the way as we got closer to installation. Chris the installer they use was phenomenal. He had some great suggestions and did an awesome job of installing the floor - very happy with the quality of his work. The after sales service has also been very good. Kara came out and personally inspected the floor and was able to provide some further advice. Honestly I couldn’t recommend The Flooring Centre highly enough. These guys have a great business with very personable and warm customer service.
STEVEN T. August 2019
We had a new floor installed in our new house before moving in. Prior to choosing to proceed with The Flooring Centre, we checked out quite a number of other providers (some big name ones can actually be quite disappointing). Compared to other providers who are merely selling and installing other people's products as third parties, The Flooring Centre is a class above. Pricing was also very reasonable compared to other competitors. Anthony was very knowledgeable and patiently answered the many questions we had and gave us good examples and options of how we could achieve the flooring outcome we were after. Derek went above and beyond to manage the installation of our new floor, ensuring that it was completed to the highest level of quality and according to our required timeline (we were in a rush to move in). Top level service, knowledgeable advice, highly professional, largest selection of flooring options I have seen to date, reasonable and competitive prices, responsive communication, excellent results with high quality, reliably seeing you through to final outcome - what else are you looking for?
