Currier Hardwoods
This is the second local flooring company we hired and should of been the first, Rick came in to a disgrace at an attempt to refinish our floors by another less costly local company, he was recommended by friends but in our attempt to save some money we took a different road, never again as they say you get what you pay for, thank you Richard Currier for a wonderful job well done.

Carpet Specialist
I strongly urge anyone considering using Carpet Specialist for flooring to look elsewhere. I had them lay flooring for me and they did an extremely sloppy job which left large gaps between the floorboards as well as gaps at the end of the boards which go under the baseboards. Bill, the owner, was not responsive to my concerns and the floors were not fixed. I strongly recommend others to look elsewhere for flooring. It bothers me everyday looking at the terrible job that was done.
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.
