Pacific Palisades - November 17, 2017

I have been very pleased with A-1 and have used them going on thirty years for an apartment that we had in Mar Vista with various kinds of flooring, everything from linoleum and wood to bamboo. Stan is a delight to work with. He does all that he can to make sure that you are happy, often going above and beyond what one would expect. More recently, I had them re-tile two of my bathrooms. I used a geometric pattern with a color in the middle that I had picked out. However, when I saw the tile placed in the actual room, I realized that I had chosen the wrong shade, so I called up Stan. He was so kind. They took care of it right away, pulling up all the little tiles just to change that color in the middle. No extra fees. It turned out beautifully, and everything was smooth sailing from there. I've also gotten to work with his daughter, Sharon, on a number of projects. She is very smart. Sam, too. They are lovely people and their pricing is great. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

A-1 did an amazing job! They bent over backwards with their service. They came out to bring me samples, even though I live far away from their shop. They also accommodated the timing that I needed and did not charge extra for the initial measurements or for carefully moving all the furniture. Their prices were perfect. Moreover, the quality of the carpets that they have is better than I could have hoped for. These people were just lovely and helped me in every way they could. I can't speak more highly of Stan and A-1. I am extremely happy with the service.

Hollywood Hills - November 8, 2017

Stan and his people did a MIRACULOUS job on my floors. I have an older home that had some issues with warping and water damage. A-1 put in wood flooring throughout the entire house and it turned out so much better than I ever thought would be possible. Everything looks perfect! I got several bids before choosing A-1, not only based on price, but because I liked Stan and it looked like he really knew what he was doing. That turned out to be true. A-1 is a remarkable company all around and I couldn't recommend them more highly.

Bernie Waldow

Culver City - October 26, 2017

A-1 replaced our old rugs with wood flooring over the past couple of months. We’re very happy with how the floors turned out and equally as satisfied with the service. Stan said the floors would be waterproof and indeed, they are. My dog has proven the point. They are nice people who were easy to get along with and were eager to help us out. I have nothing but good things to say.

Penny Williams

Hollywood Hills - October 25, 2017

I like that family a lot! I’ve had a longstanding relationship with A-1 and have used them many times over the years. Stan is very personal and conscientious. He remains concerned about your needs and is not going to cheat you. His work is excellent and his men are excellent, too. You just tell Stan what you want and he'll bring out the samples. He's always been very accommodating to help me find the right tile or carpet for my home and is filled with suggestions, but never pushy. And if I don’t like any of the samples, I just go on down to the store. They have a vast array of carpet and flooring styles in all different price ranges. His daughter, Sharon, is very good with color combination and is always sensitive to my budget. I picked out a beautiful carpet for the whole upstairs of my house, a lovely two-toned blue and white. I appreciate that they do repair work, too, if any of the loops comes loose. Notably, one of Stan's men is focused exclusively on tile work. He did a gorgeous job on the tile in our home 10 years ago and it is still in perfect condition. It has been so nice working with Stan and A-1. They are a good, honest, family that is out to satisfy you more than anything. I wouldn’t go to anyone else.

Faircrest Heights - October 25, 2017

I am very happy with my new floors and have already gotten numerous compliments! I had these original hardwood floors from 1941 that had been resurfaced one too many times. I also have a large dog with who has a knack for destroying anything in his path. I was looking for dog-proof and shoe-proof floors. I discovered A-1 because I go to the eco doggie daycare down the street from them in my neighborhood. I liked that they are a multi-generational, family-owned business. I first met with Sam who suggested luxury vinyl planks which I actually really liked. Later, Sharon helped me pick out the Provenza LVP Uptown Chic Collection floors. They are a beautiful grayish, brown with a realistic, wooden texture and wide surface—a nice, modern look. The floors are matte and wipe clean with soap and water. They’re waterproof and scratch-proof and everything-proof, so I don’t have to worry about a thing! I liked them so much that I had them do the floors throughout the entire house, removing the carpets in all the bedrooms so there’s a continuing flow from room to room. This was all based on suggestions from the folks at A-1, who were so kind and so helpful. And the workers were great! They were very careful moving all the furniture, incredibly trustworthy and left me completely at ease. Stan is one of the kindest people in the world. Very personable and very genuine. I will absolutely be calling them again.

Santa Monica - November 18, 2016

My family has been using A1 for the last 20 years and they’ve done four or five projects for me in the last year. They are a solid company. I don’t have to bid out projects anymore because that’s who I always call. I know they’ll do a good job and that they’ll stand behind their work. They’ve always been super nice and are very accommodating. They come right away, are on time, and do fast work at a good price. It’s all been positive.

Dick Mader

West LA - November 18, 2016

I found A-1 in Neighbor2Neighbor and the experience of working with them has been excellent. They’ve done the carpeting and tile for all of our properties the past five or six years. Stan is the guy we go to for all of our flooring needs. I’ve never had any problems working with them, and if you do have one, Stan takes care of it right away. They have a wide variety of products and will do whatever it takes to make you happy. The quality of the work and the relationship make them well worth their cost. They’ve been in business a long time, so that tells you something.

Josh Goldberg

Alhambra - November 9, 2016

A-1 Floor Covering is fantastic. I have no reluctance to recommend them to anybody and hold them in the highest regard. They have done two jobs for me in the apartment building I own, one in hardwood and one in linoleum. Both jobs were outstanding and the tenants were overjoyed. They are very fair, very dependable and very honest. I was super pleased with A-1 across the board and appreciate their reliability and workmanship.

Richard X

West Adams - November 3, 2016

I’ll never forget the phenomenal job A-1 did helping me with the elegant carpeting in a two-story lobby. For a lobby, the carpeting is really important. You want someone to walk in and say, “I need to live here!” The carpeting has to catch a person, but in a way that is not overbearing. Stan had enormous integrity to go through the very time consuming process of looking at samples with me. He always remains peaceful and unrushed when working with me, even with phones ringing or people coming through the door. After we made our initial selections, he encouraged me to spend some time with them. Later, he brought out the same samples, but in black and white and asked, “What can you live with now? What is still interesting to you?” I was completely in Stan’s hands and he guided me so wonderfully. The result was perfect. All these years later, people still walk in exclaiming, “Wow! That’s beautiful!” I have worked with Stan, Sharon, and Sam on and off since 2000, both in my own residence as well as for the fourplex I own. Stan has always remained adaptable and understands my idiosyncrasies. He provides a wealth of knowledge and I appreciate that I can call him up with questions that inform my decisions for different aspects of managing the units.

Pauline Carroll

Village Green - November 1, 2016

I made a list of my favorite contractors years ago and A-1 Floors is one of them. You want to keep those good contractors because there aren’t that many who are good! With Sam and Stanley I know that they will respond when I call them, and that they take responsibility for the work they do. For example, at one point they put in carpeting and I said that I just didn’t like the way it flowed. Stan immediately said “we can fix that!” and they did. Another time they had put in new linoleum and right afterward workers who installed a new dishwasher cut the linoleum. I called Stan and he came in, looked at it, and had it repaired so you couldn’t tell it had been damaged. Recently my new tenant wanted new linoleum. All I have to do is call Stan and he coordinates with the tenant. I believe in this company. They are extremely ethical people. Sometimes I look at the way the world has changed, but they have not changed. They are honest.

Richard Chernock

Hancock Park - November 1, 2016

I’ve been doing business with Stan Levy for years and his father before him. The recent job his firm did was absolutely fantastic and I would use him again without any questions or hesitations at all. Stan could not have been more cooperative working with us. The crew came on time and cleaned up beautifully. I did seek out information from other vendors for this last project and chose Stan because of his whole manner. A-1 was very pleasant to deal with. Communication could not have been better. Everything they did was phenomenal and we are thrilled with the final product.

West Hollywood - November 3, 2015

I’ve used A-1 Floor Covering for the past ten years. I like them very much because they are a family company and are very easy for me to talk to. It's great because I like to ask a lot of questions. I’ve done four different projects with them over the years—tile, carpets and wood. I've been satisfied with the quality, and the workmen have been very good. I've been present while the crew is here and am pleased when they communicate with me to make sure I am getting just what I want. They have prices that I’m comfortable with and a selection that I’m comfortable with. I like them and I keep coming back.

Richard G.

West Hollywood - November 3, 2015

This was the second time I used A-1, and I had an equally as good experience with them as the first time. They were prompt about their estimating, prompt about the installation and did everything they said they were going to do. They left the site clean and in good condition as promised. I did some research about pricing and found A-1 to be competitive. Though not the least expensive, I came back to A-1 as a repeat customer for the quality of the service they provided. Their conduct from start to finish was friendly but professional. Importantly they were efficient and didn’t waste my time. No further follow up or discussion needed.

Margaret M.

Ocean Park - November 3, 2015

A-1 did some work for me in May. There were two or three different types of flooring and I cannot tell you how good they were to work with. There were multiple workers and each person was very respectful and very conscious of being polite. And of course, the quality of the work was excellent. I interviewed three different companies for estimates. I chose A-1 not just because of the pricing, but because of the way the person who came to do the estimate conducted himself. Everyone at A-1 was professional throughout the whole process. There was never a delay in answering my questions, and they were very knowledgeable about how things could be done given the situation. Everything looks perfect! Our overall experience of working with A-1 was superior. I cannot speak of them more highly.

S. Adams

Venice - November 3, 2015

Stan and A-1 have installed flooring at my personal residence and also take care of all my rental properties. If I do flooring, Stan is my go to guy. Stan’s crew comes out, measures, matches and cleans up. I’ve never needed them to come back to fix something. Stan is very responsive and very timely. If he says, “I’ll be out on Tuesday, and it’ll take one or two days,” then he’s out on Tuesday and it takes one or two days. I’ve never had an issue. Also, his price point is always dead on. I would highly recommend A-1, they’ve been great for me throughout the years.

Ray R.

Westwood - January 21, 2015

About two years ago, I found A-1 when I needed to install a new wood floor in my home. Everything they did was really great. Their prices were extremely competitive and Stan was a real gentleman. We've never needed any follow-up, and the floor is still beautiful.

Christopher

Mid-City LA - January 21, 2015

I live right around the corner from A-1's office. We wanted to put in a pergo floor and were looking for a good company when our neighbor recommended we stop in A-1. They completed the floor about a month ago. It's perfect! They did everything they said they were going to do on budget and on time. They were very nice and professional from the first moment we came in.

Sharon B.

Beverlywood - December 22, 2014

Sharon and her brother Sam helped me with replacing all the carpet in the bedrooms and the den of my house. Sam also special ordered a beautiful area rug for my living room. I love that area rug! I chose my wall-to-wall carpet from their in-store selection, and the installers that came to my house were great. They were really quick, very helpful and the whole thing was a positive experience. I referred them to my neighbor who has used them now, and to anybody who needs carpeting. I also got a quote from them on redoing my hardwood floors, and when I am ready to do that project I will definitely be using A-1 Flooring again!

Don Peterson

Pacific Palisades - December 20, 2014

We redid hardwood floors throughout six different rooms in our house—everything from oak to bamboo. They did a great job and the price was right. Stan is expert in his field and he knows all the options. He's also an outgoing individual who is always there for you, always ready to adjust his schedule to accommodate. I absolutely recommend them.

Jim Scott

Beverly Hills - December 12, 2014

I have a rental property in which I had A1 Floors install carpet, refinish the hardwood floors and install new vinyl flooring in the kitchen. They are hard to beat. Their prices are competitive. They provided excellent workmanship and service. They’re reliable—they say they will arrive at 8 a.m. and the workers are there, punctual, clean and neat. I wish all companies were like them. Stan didn't try to oversell me. He showed me different grades of carpet and gave a lot of direction with the cost and quality. It was a pleasure working with them. Everything was top notch.

George

Los Angeles - December 7, 2014

My son did some research to find out who did our kitchen floor over 30 years ago and it turned out to be A-1 so we used them again. They were very good -- on time, on budget, with a reasonable price, and they followed up to make sure everything went well.

Anne Young

Whittier - December 5, 2014

A-1 Flooring is terrific! I have a very large kitchen and it was in need of new flooring, along with a bathroom. I had gone to Home Depot and picked out some samples but when I showed them to my children they insisted that I go see a professional. They did some research and found A-1. We went over there that same day and met Stan. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. We picked out a few samples and asked if we could take them home with us to see how they worked. Stan told us to take them home and he would come over in about an hour to see what we thought. All this on a busy Saturday! Sure enough, Stan showed up right on time, took the measurements right away, and gave us a quote for a very good price. Since I had already priced out the cost of the new flooring before visiting A-1, I was very impressed that he was right on the ball. Stan is very honest and forthright. By that Tuesday, the A-1 crew were at my house, installing my new floor! The men did a phenomenal job with the install, and the very next day they came back to install the new floor in the bathroom. In the end, the new flooring is marvelous, better than I ever expected. My whole interaction with A-1 was an exceptionally fine experience!

Joe A.

Central LA - December 2, 2014

I've been working with A-1 for over 30 years. One day, I was just driving by and I saw their storefront and walked in. It's a family business and I've now worked with three generations. I liked their attitude and their service from the beginning, and I've been doing business with them ever since. They have put in three linoleum floors and one carpet for me. The carpeting was done just three months ago. The workers are really professional, they always do a good job. I recommend A-1 to whoever I hear needs flooring.

S.C.

Santa Monica - December 2, 2014

I hired A-1 Flooring to refinish my hardwood floors. The job ended up taking twice as long because of the poor quality of work. The employee that performed the work admitted to rushing resulting in poor quality and having to redo/repair most of it. Whenever we contacted the owners with any issues we found, the employee was the one that called us back the majority of the time. If a customer has problems and asks the owner to call them back, the owner should call back. The customer should never have to act as the foreman and direct the employee nor should they have to demand that the owner come and see the problems for themselves. Finally, an owner should not tell the customer they are unavailable because they will be out of town for the holiday weekend and not offer an alternative. We had two guests from out of town that had to sleep in our camper because the work had to be redone. We were not going to move the furniture back in for the night only to move it all back out again the next day so the repairs could be done, as A-1 suggested.In the end, we cancelled the rest of our contract with them. The floors were repaired to our satisfaction, but some of the issues couldn't be remedied without starting all over again. I would not use this company again.

R.C.

Culver City - November 29, 2014

I knew of A-1 Flooring because my father did business with Stan’s father many years ago. When I needed new flooring for my own home I looked at other places first, but then when I went to A-1. I liked the fact that either Stan, Sharon or Sam are always at the store, so you are dealing with the owners directly when you call. When it comes to sales they are very low pressure, and they do what they say they are going to do. Sharon helped me picked out tile, and I chose the carpet. The installers were very good, and they finished the job quickly.

Cheryl Morris

Hollywood - October 22, 2014

We own an apartment building, and needed to replace the carpet in several apartments. We went to Home Depot, but were surprised to find that A-1 beat the price. They were very customer-friendly and professional. They helped me with my color scheme to match furniture in one apartment, and also helped with standard, but low-cost, durable carpet for the other apartments. These were one day jobs. They always finished in a day and followed up with a phone call to make sure we were satisfied.

Diane Miller

Diane Miller - October 22, 2014

I’ve been a customer of A-1 Flooring for almost 30 years. Stan’s customer service is excellent. He is responsible, reliable and follows through on every job. He runs his business the way you wish most business would be run. I have an apartment building and Stan does all our floors there, and in our home. I trust him, and that’s very important to me. Over the years he’s never let me down. I tell you, I’ve dealt with a lot of different people in business, and Stan is top of the list. He’s so helpful, and you can call him with any questions. He also stands behind his work. If it needs fixing, he fixes it right away. He is just a great businessperson who cares about his clients. I wish I had more Stans!

William S. and Ellen F. Adelman

Pacific Palisades - April 24, 2014

A-1 did our new kitchen floors and new kitchen tiles. We picked out the colors with them. They were excellent...double excellent! I've worked with them for years. Honestly, they were very professional and the quality of their employees is just outstanding. They collaborated with us, Sam and Stan and Sharon...they're all just really good people. Elmar did the work and he was great. I got other bids from others who never bothered to call back and get the specifications, and they were higher bids. I stuck with A-1. Believe me, they're great. I refer a lot of people to them.

MH

Los Angeles - October 6, 2013

I'm an apartment building owner and use A-1 for my carpet and linoleum work. For 44 years, they've been our vendors. My buildings are from 1947 and they knew exactly what was appropriate for the buildings, how to fix the floorboards and install properly. They come out the day we call and give me an estimate that day, then do the work one day later. They're very responsive. They help with quality and colors and are always faithful to the estimate. For residential apartments you can't get better quality and selection. They're great with follow-up, too. Once I had to call them back to fix some transition strips which they did right away. I recommend them.

West Hollywood - September 2, 2012

Stan did a kitchen and front entry for me. My wife and I were absolutely delighted, from start to finish! His workers are highly skilled and the quality is extremely high. A-1 is also extremely reliable and their customer service is outstanding. They do exactly what they say they are going to do, and more! They start early, and work straight through the day. It is a pleasure to have them in our home. Stan has been in this business his entire life and Sharon is a designer. She is very helpful. You not only get beautiful floors but for no extra charge, you get a design consultant. In the beginning my wife and I did not know what we wanted. We went back to the store many times and they were always so patient with us. Sharon came to our home and helped us select what would be best for us. Our floors are beautiful! They all have so much patience and they make it seem so easy. Everything they do is highly professional and first rate! Their prices are more than fair for the level of quality you receive. We never felt they were pushing anything on us. They freely shared their expertise and wisdom. They wanted us to have exactly what was right for us, not necessarily the top price floor. We trusted them. We felt they were on our side throughout the entire process and were with us for the long term. They really wanted us to be happy. And we are! I can't imagine that anyone could have done a better job for us than A-1.

S.J. Decker

Mar Vista - August 6, 2012

We have had three floors done with Stan and plan on doing two more because his floors always turn out perfect! Everyone in the store is courteous and helpful. The ceramic tile guy is a perfectionist. I did price-shop around a bit and their prices are so good. The quality of the work is perfect. The job has always been right the first time, so there has never been any need for follow-up. They go out of their way to be sure we are happy. I'm glad to recommend them to others.

Helen S.

Woodland Hills - December 1, 2011

This is the first job we have had A-1 do for us, and we are so happy with our floor. People come in and exclaim over it all the time! It is so beautiful. They were very good. They finished the job on time, and Stan was there, overseeing the work so it would be right. I liked that. Their prices were reasonable, too. I highly recommend A-1 Flooring.

Leanna Kirk - November 21, 2011

My husband and I hired A-1 Floor Covering Company in 2000 and again in 2011 to install laminate flooring and carpeting. Stan Levy is a wonderful, very professional, highly competent, and friendly man. He is very thorough and makes sure that you are thoroughly satisfied. The workmen do an impeccable job. Our entire house has floor covering from A-1 Floor Covering Company. I have recommended A-1 Floor Covering Company to my friends, and they are very happy with the company's work.

David Fryden

West Hollywood - November 10, 2011

I own some apartment buildings and have been dealing with A-1 Floors since the days of Stan's mom and dad. I have been with them so long that I don't even need to go down to the showroom anymore. I call up, someone shows up to measure, and the job is completed in a week or less. It's a no-brainer! I totally trust their competitive pricing, their product and their expertise. I am confident of them on all fronts. They are a quality, straightforward company. I do not hesitate to refer them to anyone. And I like that A-1 is a family-run company.

Yvonne S.

Bell Canyon - November 4, 2011

We had a wonderful experience with A 1 Floors. I have already given their names out to friends because we've found them to be so great. We’re in Ventura and there are plenty of carpet people here. Trust me, A 1 wasn’t the only one we checked out. For us to go with A 1, they had to have been superior and delivered a superior product. But it was not just the carpeting and flooring, they were also eager to do business with us. They showed us that they were interested in coming into our home and making us happy. One thing we liked is that is it a family-owned business. We worked with Stan, his son, his daughter and his wife! This is not a fly by night company. They have been around for a long time and in order to be around for a long time you have to deliver. We had a great experience. They are competitively priced—comparable. We did practically entire house, and they were willing to do what they could to please us. They didn't compromise on service. You get the impression from some companies they will give you a better price, but they skimp somewhere else. A 1 Floor has been great.

Mike Wood

Sunland - November 15, 2010

My father and Stan's father worked together, and so Stan and I have worked together for a long time, about 40 years. Now I get to work with Stan's kids, too. When I worked for a termite company, A 1 did all the floor work for us. Their work has always been great - always on time and the service is always excellent. Their prices are not the lowest, but they offer good prices. What I like about them is that if there ever is a problem, which there hardly ever is, they say "I'll be right over to fix it." They never question if it was my fault or his or the supplier. He just makes it right. A 1 is a great company.

Margie Jones Hausman

Mt. View Estates, Calabasas - November 5, 2010

Years ago, Stan took out old carpeting and put in new for me. Recently he installed hardwood floors in my home. He and his company are on time, professional, meticulous, and they saved me a lot of money. Their bid was one third of the other two companies I checked with. I first heard about A1 Floor Company from my cousin who had then been using him for twenty years in all her buildings. I have never needed him for any follow up; the job is right the first time. Stan and his crew are beyond professional and come at my convenience. I refer them to everyone I know. What a company! They are incredible!

C. Doren

Studio City and Burbank - October 15, 2010

I have used A1 Floor Covering for over ten years in a number of rental properties. Their attention to detail and customer service is excellent. Stan is accessible, easy to deal with, and reliable. He will always find a solution for me. I did not shop around because when I found Stan he was, and is, the exact vendor relationship I was looking for.

Marge Young

Sotheby's Realty, Sherman Oaks - September 27, 2010

I’m a realtor and have been using Stan at A1 Floors for over fifteen years, for my clients and for my own homes. His customer service and quality is the same for homes worth thousands as for homes in the millions. I always get fabulous personalized service working with A1! They come in on time, do their job, and they are polite and clean. Absolutely the best! I recently sold a condo that Stan had installed the linoleum in twenty years ago. It was still absolutely seamless! Their work is wonderful, perfect and their prices are always competitive! They stay in communication with me by phone and email and I never have to call them for any follow-up after they have completed a job. A1 is a family-owned and operated business; totally honest with no hustle.

Mark Chapman

Marina del Rey - December 23, 2009

I started using A 1 Floor about 5 years ago after a friend recommended them. They removed the carpet in a room and put in a hardwood floor in the hallway five years ago and then did the same with the office a couple of weeks ago. They match so perfectly you can’t tell that the jobs were done five years apart! And what’s more, Stan did it at basically the same price he quoted five years earlier! They also tiled my bathroom and it looks great. He sends out conscientious, experienced people who clean up after themselves. I had a problem with a cable under the floor after the job was done. They came back when the cable guy came, lifted the board, and replaced it when the cable was fixed. Problems like this can always happen on a job. What I want is the company that will follow through and take care of the problems. Stan is looking for the long-term customer so he takes good care of you.

The only way this could have been any better would be if God did it himself! Stan recarpeted the whole house, laid ceramic tile in the entryway and in front of the fireplace and put new linoleum in two of the bathrooms. A1 is a dream to work with! The price point matched the dollar amount I had in my mind. I felt they were basically spot on in what was appropriate for the work they did. They were very helpful in finding a good tile. It looks 1000 times better and came in at a competitive price. Most critical though was the execution. It was all absolutely perfect! A friend of mine knows the family and I found out that Stan lives three blocks from me in Beverlywood. I have to tell you, I am a pain in the ass! I would not do this for just anyone, but for Stan, I can’t say enough!

Stan’s prices are competitive or even lower than other people I called. He did work for a client of mine and they were very happy with him. His men are wonderful, so nice to work with. I have referred them to other clients and they are easy to work with. They fit the jobs into our schedules. And Stan uses his own employees when he installs, which does make a difference! As far as his selection, I have always found what I wanted and his suggestions have always been appropriate. A1 Flooring is a family affair and they know their stuff!

We’ve been doing business with A1 Floor for 20 years. They have competitive prices, their workers are efficient and they do quality work. I like Stan, too. He is pleasant and cordial. We recently had the cable company come out to do some work and they damaged the carpet. Though it was not even Stan’s carpet, he came out the next day and repaired it, free of charge! A1 Floor is always Johnny-On-The-Spot!

We’ve done on and off remodeling on our house for the last 15 years, at least 8 different times. A1 is always on time and their prices are great!

Stan was recommended to me by a close friend who designs kitchens for a living and always uses A1 Floors. I discovered their selection was daunting. It took me four or five times to make my choices. Once I did, their service was super! The crew even laid the floor under my grand piano so I did not have to move it or have it stored. They were prompt and clean. I am a repeat customer, as they are now working on my bathroom floors.

I went to A1 Flooring to work on my bathroom. I had put it off for a year because I was a novice at this and had been struggling with it. They held my hand and walked me through it, step by step. I felt so comfortable. They took time to help me choose what I thought I wanted, and then, using their expertise they tweaked it, so that it all came together. I even brought my paint chips in to the store and put them on the tiles. A1 spent two hours with me, just during this part of the process. They asked me about my fixtures and the sink, then brought out samples so I could see what it was truly going to look like, not just what I imagined it was going to look like. It was really cool! I felt so taken care of. A1 was referred to me by a friend and the quote was well within my budget. I had gotten another quote, and A1 was very competitive. Everything went as planned and in the time they said it would be. They also gave me very detailed explanations of what was going to happen. I felt fully educated during this whole process. But it was really their personal customer service that pushed it all over the top. I was so happy with the whole experience and I love my bathroom!

I have hired A 1 three times over the past six or seven years. Stan is a good guy. I have recommended him to several people. They did a perfect job when they replaced the tile in the kitchen. It is gorgeous!! I was able to choose from all kinds of tile he had at the store. The tile had been done two previous times and it never came out this good. They also replaced the carpet in various rooms. The best part for me is that they are good at what they do and easy to work with. The people who do the installation have been working for him for 20 years. I can trust them and I leave them alone in the house. If I need something done, I will call Stan before anyone. He has fair prices - I got three estimates for my first job with him and he was right in the middle. Since then I have had no reason to question him. I deal with him or his son - they are equally professional. Stan is a responsible man and he only wants responsible people working for him. I always ask for the same guys. I would recommend A 1 to anybody!

I’m an interior designer, so I make all my decisions regarding product. I’ve worked with Stan for over 20 years. He does beautiful, quality work. I have no complaints. A1 is very qualified and serious about their work. I’ve had them do carpet work as well as floors, four projects in all. They can get you anything!

Stan is an old time kind of guy who really cares about his customers. He is very down-to-earth. I got another bid, but Stan’s pricing was much better for both carpet and wood floors. He has enough people working for him that if you need something done soon, he can schedule it quickly. His people show up on time and they are all long-time employees. Stan is the only contractor I have used that came, did what he said he’d do, left and followed up, even though he didn’t have to come back for anything.

I manage a 36-unit apartment building and A-1 does all the carpet and vinyl floors. Their work is always excellent. The product is good. The workers are careful when they bring the product in and clean when they take it out. I recommend them to everyone I know. Stan is a fair person and gives you a fair price.

I have used A-1 on my three rental properties for 10 years. They treat us really well. The crews are nice, on time and easy to deal with. Stan has a really good eye and knows what is out there, so sometimes he helps us pick out floor coverings. We have picked his brain a lot. He gives a good price--not the absolute cheapest, but we prefer to have someone knowledgeable and experienced.

I live in a very upscale condominium building and almost all of us use A-1 Floor. They do wonderful work. Their workers are neat and punctual. Their estimates are accurate. They answer all of your questions and they show you lots of options based on what your needs are. Stan came through for me with a very small job, too. I needed to replace a small section of damaged flooring with a laminate that had been discontinued. Stan found what I needed and fixed the floor. I wish more people knew about A-1. They’re an honest dealer!
