I cannot recommend Scott and his team at Preferred highly enough! They replaced all the hardwoods in our home (including sanding and staining the stair risers to match), and added LVP and tile in our basement. The work is exceptional, their prices are reasonable and their friendliness and customer focus can't be beat. I visited several local flooring companies before Preferred, including the ones "everyone" uses and none of them came close to making me feel as welcome and valued as they have. Go visit them today - you will be glad you did!!

Preferred Flooring staff was fantastic to work with. I benefited from the staff's design sense and the installer was quick, professional and friendly. Overall, the floor color and quality turned out great thanks to their help.

Worked with Jeff Parker on the installation of new red oak hardwood flooring for my kitchen and pantry (240 sq ft). Previously had linoleum in the kitchen, and his crew did a fantastic job of seamlessly weaving in the new hardwood with the rest of the existing hardwood throughout the first floor. We opted to have everything sanded down together (900 sq ft) and oil based poly coating. We wanted a more natural look so did not have the floors stained. We love the way everything came out and couldn’t be happier. Jeff was easy to talk to, easy to work with, responsive, and materials and crews showed up on schedule. Would highly recommend Preferred Flooring for your hardwood project.
