About Us

Our Team

Our team of project managers, each with flooring experience and professional training, works with each of our clients from the start of a project to its completion. They guide the selection process, offering their experience to help clients select floors that will meet their needs best. They first carefully measure, estimate and inspect existing conditions. They then oversee the entire project from ordering the right quantity of flooring to overseeing the final installation. Above all you’ll find that our project managers greatly value people, one uncommon intangible that can go a long way in making the difference between a good floor and a great floor!

CFP provides experienced and trained installers who have a long and proven history of excellent workmanship. Fine workmanship, coupled with research into the particular and varied warranty requirements of each flooring manufacturer, sets our installers apart.
