Mike was very professional, honest and straightforward. My floors weren't bad but the finish wasn't great. I initially ask for an estimate for completely refinishing the floors. Mike said he'd handle it for me but that it wasn't really needed, We agreed on a very light sandy and just recoating the floors with a new polyurethane finish. The floors turned out great. I really appreciate Mike's honesty. I'd definitely recommend Checkmate Flooring!!

Mike was very professional to work with and did an excellent job refinishing the oak hardwood floors in my property. The floors were in very poor condition and they made them look like we had installed brand new oak flooring. In addition, they were able to patch in a large area where a floor furnace grate had been and the transition between where the old flooring stopped and the new flooring started was seamless! They did the work when they said they would and finished within the agreed upon time. Mike even came back to fix a very minor piece of shoe molding that had split. Their pricing was fair and the quality excellent. I will absolutely be calling them back out on my next project.

Mike and his team at Checkmate Flooring did a wonderful job on our home. We had just moved into a new home, our first, and wanted to replace carpet and old laminate flooring. Checkmate replaced it with a mix of engineered hardwood and porcelain tile and we were very satisfied with the work. Everything was accurately quoted, and there was no aggressive up selling. Knowing near nothing about floors, Mike provided some helpful education to help us make our selections. When we have to do our next floor project, we will call Checkmate Flooring!

Did a great job on my wood laminate , actually showed up on time for the measuring and original meeting, and showed up 5 minutes early for the install, that's unheard of these days. Very happy with him and his team, will hire him for some other parts of our house needing flooring in the future. I feel he is a good value, trustworthy, prompt, and does good work, what else could I ask for.

We had water damage in our bedroom that required about half of the floor to be replaced. We had Checkmate repair the floor. They took up and relaid the entire floor while reusing the original undamaged flooring. While they were there, they fixed a few minor issues with our floor in the living room free of charge as without me asking them to. All of their work looks better than the original installer.

Mike and his crew did an amazing job on my townhouse! They were quick, their price was great, and they were all really professional. I told Mike that I was only in town for 1 week, trying to prep my house to put it on the market, and he made sure they finished everything in my time frame. I had them put in new hardwood floors on the main level, and carpet upstairs and in the basement. I love it, and wish I had gotten the hardwood years ago. Mike even referred me to a really good painter, and he helped me pick out a paint color based on what he had seen in other homes. I would definitely recommend.

Thank You for your business, it was our pleasure to help you get this place ready for the market. Hope it will sell in a heartbeat! -Mike-
We have used Mike's CheckMate company's service three times in the past 6 years - 2 times for hardwood floor repair and installation, one time for carpet replacement. We are extremely satisfied with the quality of the work each of the time. On top of that, Mike always provided reasonable and competitive price for the service. We are going to call Mike again when we are ready to finish our basement. Mike is honest and works very hard, and always looks out for his clients' benefits. We highly recommend CheckMate to anyone who need flooring service.

I was very pleased with the work the Checkmate team did tiling my entire ground level. It was a big job, but they didn't cut corners. Chris and the crew worked tirelessly and it looks wonderful! Their pricing was fair, and the team were very respectful of my home and cleaned up after. Highly recommend Checkmate Flooring!

I am a do it yourselfer who can be difficult to please and typically I don't bother to write reviews because even with good research, most contractors I've dealt with are pretty good though not perfect and tend to cut corners if you let them. Well Mike and his crew were absolutely meticulous and did a fantastic job refinishing the floors in the whole house, putting down som new areas of flooring, new shoe molding, and cleanup. I would not know the difference between the old (1950s) and new areas of floor by looking at them. And if you're looking for a group that shows up on time and does exactly what they say they'll do, this is it. I found them through a referral from a friend and have been recommending them to others. It is nice to see the work of a real professional and realize that even given the time and right tools, there is no way I could do as good a job as them. Their bid was at or better than 2 others too. I will say to anyone getting their floors done for the first time, do have some realistic expectations about the dust - though the floor should be sparkling, it is simply impossible to keep dust from finding the tops of ceilng fans, window sills, etc - so getting your stuff completely out of the work area, taking down drapes, etc is the only way to go, and budget for an hr or so of dusting and rehanging things afterward.

Had hardwood installeld on entire first floor. Mike and his team were highly skilled, knew what they were doing, paid attention to minute details, were punctual and courteous. The price was great as well. Some unforeseen problems came up with my existing floor during the project and they took care of them right away, and were very professional throughout the project. Enjoyed working with these guys. Will consider them again for my future needs (upstiars fooring).

Mike thanks for an outstanding job. Checkmate replaced carpet in my basement and exceeded our expectations. The company was dependable and very professional. The installers worked non stop and never left a mess. After the basement was done I was so impressed I had mike lay hardwood floors in our master bedroom. Again the workmanship was first class. I checked other companies before contracting checkmate and realized checkmate had the best prices. I would highly recommend mike and crew you won't be sorry.
