Sterling Smith Hardwoods came highly recommended by my neighbor who hired them last year for their hardwood floor install. Due to their recommendation I decided to call Rick. We were very pleased with the final product we received and the price we were quoted was very reasonable.We had our living room, kitchen/dinning, entry, stairs and study done in beautiful Cherry wood flooring. We would highly recommend Sterling Smith Hardwoods. Rick was very easy to deal with, punctual and courteous.

We had our floors done approx 2 weeks ago.After trying to do the floors ourselves we decided to call in a professional.Rick was the most helpful and explained to us the complete process.There was no dust left after the job (which I was dreading) and the price was more reasonable than we thought it would be. We are very happy we called Rick and Highly recommend him. CJ Spencer/ Bremerton, WA

Rick was very efficient, detailed, prompt and personable. The price he gave me in his estimate was the price I paid when the job was completed (there were no surprise charges).The floors look beyond what I had anticipated they would. I am very pleased with the end result. I highly would recommend Sterling Smith Hardwoods.

Rick has done many of our rental properties including our home. He is a one man powerhouse and extremely talented within his profession. He just completed another project of ours on Bainbridge and as always I would give the final product an A+ . We will continue to use Rick.
Tips & Advices
In most states, contractors are required to have a license before taking a job. Some states also require registration. To be licensed, contractors must pass an exam and meet certain qualifications that prove he or she is a competent flooring contractor. Registration is simply a list of who will be performing a job.
The time it takes to install flooring depends on the type of flooring and the size of the room or rooms involved in the project. In one day, a typical contractor can usually install up to 2,000 square feet of carpet, 600 square feet of hardwood or laminate, or 400 square feet of tile or stone.
  • Do you have a professional license, insurance, and a business liability policy?
  • Who will work on the project?
  • Do you subcontract, and do you screen workers and have insurance policies to cover them?
  • Do you have references or examples of your work I can see?
  • Do you charge for an in-home estimate?
  • What type of flooring is best for my home in terms of architectural consistency, environmental influences (such as whether a certain type of flooring will be affected by humidity in my area), and durability?
Legally, insurance is not necessary, but it's a good idea for flooring contractors to have it. When hiring a flooring contractor, ask whether the business is insured. If it's not, consider that a red flag.
A flooring contractor should know the pros and cons of each flooring option. These might include pricing, time of installation, durability, and average lifespan of the material.
