Excellent quality and competitive pricing, 8/25/2015

We had an excellent experience with Emperial Hardwood Floors from start to finish. Owner Ricky Core was reliable and honest. He offered fair pricing, helpful advice, and understood our needs from the... very beginning. We couldn't be happier with the finished project and will eagerly recommend Emperial to our family and friends.

Great Job

I had Emperial redo our old hardwoods in 3 rooms in our house. They were very efficient in doing the prep work, sanding, staining and finishing. They did a very nice job, including keeping the dust to a minimum. They were professional and executed the job very well. I would certainly use them again.

Repeat Customer

We used Ricky and Emperial for refinishing hardwoods back around Thanksgiving of last year in our new home, and this summer we needed refinishing in our rental unit as well. I was pretty certain I was going to use them again based on the dozens of compliments we got in our home, but I got quotes and Emperial came in the lowest. We went with Emperial and the floors again look spectacular. Everyone who came to see the apartment commented on how great they look and I feel we were able to get more rent per month based on how great the floors look.

Great job...beautiful floors

This company was recommended by a friend and, after having Ricky give an estimate, I never bothered calling anyone else. The price was fair, work was completed on time, and the floors are beautiful. Very happy with the quality of the work and would definitely use this company again.

Our House

We just had our floors refinished and stained darker, wood steps installed and hallway and stained the same color. The experience we had with Ricky and Lori was perfect from start to finish. The floors and stairs are just so beautiful! I can't stop looking at them. I can not wait to redo the floor in the loft. I just can't say enough about Emperial and their team. Thanks you all so much! Kim and Glenn.

Fantastic hardwood flooring firm!

Lori and Ricky run a very organized hardwood flooring business. They returned our call, came out and gave us an estimate, scheduled the work to be done in a timely manner and then refinished our floors with superb quality. The crew that they assigned to the task showed up on time everyday and cleaned up after they were finished. I would highly recommend them to any homeowners in need of hardwood floor installation or refinishing.

Job Well Done

We hired Emperial Hardwood Floors to replace all of the carpet in our upstairs rooms and hallway with hardwood floors. They completed all the work within their estimated timeframe and the quality of the floors is outstanding. They did a great job of sealing off the work to keep the dust from settling downstairs. Ricky expertly matched the floors to the existing downstairs hardwoods. The workmanship on the curved landing in our upstairs hallway is incredible. Ricky and Lori came highly recommended to us from a neighbor and we are so glad we chose Emperial for our job as well. We could not be more pleased with the results.

I would use Emperial Hardwood again

My job included refinishing about 2,000 square feet of floors and replacing boards here and there as needed. The work was good; it was done in the time frame that was projected; and the price was fair. Ricky was very helpful when it came to choosing what wood to replace and what wood to leave. Based on the damage that was there and my budget, the results were great. As for pricing, I found most floor refinishers to have similar prices. Ricky prices the shoe molding based on the square footage that is refinished, rather than on the linear feet of shoe molding. Most of the time, the price is based on linear feet, but his shoe molding price was about the same as or less than others.

Look no further - Ricky and his team are awesome!

Ricky and his team were fantastic! My husband and I purchased a home at the end of April and we had a month to do some major renovations before we moved in. Our priorities were the floors, walls and kitchen, and the first thing we needed to conquer was the floors. Ricky fit us in his schedule and worked diligently to finish so that all the other contractors could get in the house to do their work. The job was not easy. We had all of the existing hardwood floors refinished and then a large section of tile removed and replaced with hardwoods. It was arduous removing the tile, but his team never complained. I had a hard time deciding on a color for the hardwoods and Ricky was very patient with me. He showed me a variety of different options until I found one that made me happy. I would recommend them to anyone! Not only did they finish the work in a timely manner, but the quality of their work was top notch.

Exceptional All Around!

Ricky runs an outstanding business. Starting with the quality of the products he uses, the timeliness and details of the contracts, the friendliness and professionalism of his staff, the start and completion of the project on the date and time set per the contract, to the quality of workmanship and finished project, Emperial Hardwood Floors is probably hands down the best company we have ever worked with. The hardwood floors in our master bedroom and children's bedroom look amazing! Thank you, Ricky, Lori, Oz and the rest of the workers we had the pleasure of working with!

Great job!

I had engineered wood installed in my basement. Ricky, the owner, was great. He referred me to Pro Source where I was able to find a beautiful, reasonably priced wood. Ricky also picked up the wood and delivered it to my home. There were several boxes that he had to carry and he did it without complaining. The installers did a great job. The floors look great. I am very pleased and would use Emperial again in the future.

Happy Homeowner

Due to a leak from our refrigerator we needed to replace and match the existing wood floor in our kitchen and part of our dining room. Ricky came and immediately took measurements and made phone calls to see about matching the floor. We had two other bids and the prices were close. We chose Ricky for his attention to the details and suggestions that we did not think of, but needed to do. The wood came in a couple of business days and they got started within a couple of days. My floors never looked so good! The men that did the work, moved the heavy furniture out and moved it back, cleaned up and did not leave a mess behind. I would highly recommend Emperial Hardwood Floors to anyone.

Wonderful Job!!!

Emperial did an amazing job. Ricky Core, the owner, was very thorough and helpful during the entire process. Spent amble time showing different stains to make sure we were happy with our choice. They completed the project in the quoted time and the finished product looks amazing. Pricing was very competitive and the quality of work speaks volumes about Ricky and his crew. We will DEFINITELY use Emperial Hardwood again.

Qualified, Professional, and Punctual

Our floors are 88 years old, lumpy, and dry, and Emperial made them look amazing. The work was done about 3 months ago, and there was some concern about buckling due to dryness, but they carefully looked at every board, replaced only the ones that needed replacing, an advised us on the best stain color and finish. (We ended up going with the water based finish, which is more expensive but worth the extra.) Everyone that comes over now remarks on how amazing the floors look. The workers were on-time, they thanked me every day for the work, they worked hard, and left the place clean. I have absolutely no complaints and would recommend Emperial again and again.

Beautiful hardwood floors

We are so happy with our new hardwood floors! Ricky and his team removed our old carpet, blended the new hardwoods with existing hardwoods and installed wrought iron railings. The team members were professional and worked to minimize the disruption in our household during construction. We certainly recommend Emperial Hardwood Floors without reservation!
