We got quotes from several companies (Empire being the biggest rip off) for installing hardwoods that we purchased ourselves as well as installing the floors that they rep. We really wanted a hand scrapped look & couldn't find anyone that had that in the color & 5" plank size that we wanted. We happened to get a postcard in the mail from Gemstone and decided we had nothing to lose in getting a quote despite that we didn't have a direct reference. Not only was Gemstone's quote more than reasonable than the others but Darren looked high & low to find the exact floor we were looking for - .in addition,, the installation team showed up on time, worked quickly, were extremely professional, did a bang up job AND completely cleaned up after themselves even removing the carpet & padding from what was pulled up for the hardwoods. We can't say enough good things about Darren Lacy & Gemstone's professional quality business & crew. We will use them again & have already referred him off to family.

I called the owner, Darren Lacy, and he came out to give me an estimate in two days. He didn't have samples of the type/color that I wanted. I found a pattern that I liked and told him what I wanted. He ordered it and his crew installed it in a couple of days later. His crew was professional and did an excellent job. My linoleum looks great and the price was much less than a couple other estimates that I got.
