Just had the Emperial team here to refinish, repair areas and install hardwood flooring. The owner, Ricky, was a delight to work with in the planning phases. Our crew was headed by George, and they... were great as well! Communication was excellent. They were always here when they said they would be, or called ahead if changes were necessary. Their estimate, although pretty close, was the lowest of the 3 I received. I fall more and more in love with my new/updated floors each day! We look forward to have them back for work in the future.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

I asked Emperial Hardwood Floors to make my dull hardwoods shine again. I couldn't be more pleased. The crew that arrived to my house was courteous, efficient and knowledgeable. My floors never looked better. I received the recommendation from a family member and would refer them to anyone that asks. They simply are the best!

I used Emperial Hardwood 12 years ago on my old house ( I was very happy then). So I obtained a new quote from Emperial for my current place along with a few other companies for comparison. Emperial offers the best deal. Emperial's work is outstanding plus they wil move the heavier pieces of furniture for you. Other companies wanted me to hire movers which adds to the cost considerably. Ricky Core, the owner,has over 30 plus years of experience. Ricky recommended a specific color to better blend the floors with my oak cabinets & stair rails. At the end the floors look so beautiful!

After comparing costs and services with 3 other flooring companies serving Marietta, we chose Emperial, and we were glad we did. Their price quote was competitive, the quality of the flooring materials was superior, and the craftsmanship was outstanding. I would confidently recommend Ricky and Emperial Floors to anybody.

Ricky and his crew did a great job of installing some engineered floors in our basement on a slab. They made the transition to other rooms like a bathroom where the floor was uneven look very nice and smooth. Cleaned up after themselves. In our old house they did some repair on termite damage on real hardwoods. The floors were 100 years old. You could not see the difference in stain and they hand sanded down the board to the level of the others. That is why I used him on our new house. Thanks Ricky. Randy and Lisa

I went with Emperial Hardwood after looking them up on the Better Business Bureau. The last flooring company I used was a disaster, so I was weary. When Ricky called me to discuss redoing my stairs, he answer ever stupid question I had about carpet to wood stairs. Then he came for a visit to give me my quote, and after talking with him, I added on refinishing my second floor hardwoods. He was extremely honest about pricing and everything that would be included. There was no fine print with them. He then completed my stair conversion (which had retro fit treads) and floor refinishing (white oak) while I was out of the country. When I came back, everything was absolutely perfect and he called to walk me through everything they had done and anything that we hadn't specifically talked about during our meeting before I left. Overall, I would absolutely recommend using Emperial Hardwood because of their professionalism and true passion for what they do. I can't wait to use them again for my next hardwood project!

We were very impressed with Emperial floors. Ricky was great with helping select the correct color for our floors as well as answering any questions that we had. I feel like they were very honest as well as professional. Will be using them again in the future!

I made the decision to go with Emperial Hardwood Floors because of their long history in business, their friendly and earnest owner, and their price. I was not disappointed. Ricky was responsive and flexible and his crew worked hard and did a great job. The crew removed old tile flooring and put down white oak, which they then stained and sealed. And when they encountered subflooring and mold issues in the half bath off of our kitchen, Ricky did not try to gouge me on repairs. George's crew communicated well and cleaned up after themselves every day before they left. Dust was minimal.The floors look great. I would definitely use them again. You can trust Ricky.

I had my hardwood floors refinished with some minor repairs. They look wonderful. But most importantly, Ricky responds to phone calls, arrives when scheduled and he and his crew are friendly and professional. Great work and they could write a book on great service.

Ricky Core is very professional and knowledgeable about flooring. His crew (ask for Bobby) transformed a engineered hardwood floor that was painted white and used as an underlayment for carpet for 25 years into a beautiful maple hardwood floor. I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for the beautiful job. And, when they say it's 99.7% dust free while sanding, they mean it. his
