What Customers Say About Custom Installations by Floor Decor
Always a Stress-Free Experience!
Over 10 years ago I wandered into Floor Décor looking for an area carpet for our living room... the person in the showroom was so helpful and offered swatches to take home before I decided....easy! Fast forward to our current kitchen/dining room renovation and of COURSE we called Floor Décor for a quote!
We LOVE our new hardwood floor! From working with Mike, Janine, and the team to the rip out of the old and install of the new--it was a stress-free experience.
They totally made it easy on us...keeping us informed of next steps and what to expect. Even when it rained unexpectedly on the delivery day of the floor they offered to come over and help me cover and protect the boxes!
Now it's time for backsplash tile as we complete this new kitchen project and after consulting with Randie we found a perfect solution rather quickly; reviewing samples at the store and then bringing them home!
The team is totally professional and friendly...it's like asking your friends what they think...and that kind of customer service and attention to detail is rare these days!
Thank you, Floor Décor team!! :)

Great customer service!
I wasn’t sure what type of kitchen flooring I wanted. They were very informative and helpful. There is a large selection to choose from.
Definitely recommend Floor Decor!!!

You can't get any better!
Floor Decor recently installed carpeting for me. The work I had done was very complicated and meticulous, involving a lot of custom cuts. The technician did a beautiful job and I could not have asked for anything better.
I have purchased area rugs and runners from Floor Decor in the past and they have always been good to me, so I knew I wanted to work with them for this big project.
I recommend Floor Decor for excellent service and workmanship

Floor Decor Exceeded Expectations!
We have used Floor Decor over the last 10 - 15 years for all the floor projects in our house: bathroom tile replacement, hardwood floor refinishing, carpet replacement in all 4 bedrooms, and laminate installation in our finished basement.
Michael Phoenix and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful in selecting the best materials for the project. They are "hands-on" with pre-installation site visits to make sure the installation goes smoothly.
The installation crews they use are efficient, professional, and courteous. Michael and his staff exceeded expectations.

Outstanding and Very Friendly Customer Service.
When my wife and I walked into the store we saw a bit of everything for your flooring needs.
Mike came over to us and introduce himself. We told him we were working on the bathroom and he guided us to all the right displays. He put everything together for us and gave us a great price.
Everything was special-order so he kept us updated with the shipments. Their customer service is outstanding and very friendly.
Keep up the great work. I’m glad we found Floor Decor from NY.
Elliott R. Peekskill, NY
This was our second purchase from Floor Decor.
We were shopping for a Luxury Vinyl wood-look product. We found the showrooms in both Orange and Middletown to have a great selection. We found a wonderful flooring that fit our budget and satisfied the look we were going for.
Mike came out to measure and was meticulous in his schematic and calculation. When we discovered the product was back-ordered, Mike researched and found some availability in another State.
We were very satisfied with the installation crew and the end result! The new flooring is beautiful and functional.
Thank you Floor Decor, Mike, and Janine!
