We Give Back to Our Community
We can’t be a part of the community if we don’t give back. As a part of our commitment to our community, we donate a portion of our net monthly sales to Haymarket Regional Food Pantry. As a father, I always think about how difficult it must be for other parents who are unable to feed their family. We regularly buy food for the pantry, and I hope I can do more through contributions to this business.
We’re Versatile Enough to Install Any Kind of Floor
We have the experience needed to handle any kind of job. We’re able to install numerous flooring options, including:
There are two types of hardwood floors, solid and engineered. Solid wood, as the name describes, is a solid piece of wood, stained (or not), and then finished with polyurethane. It may also come “unfinished”, so that it can be stained to your specification and finished after being installed. Solid wood is usually ¾” thick, and comes in random lengths. Species, width, and selectiveness determine the cost. Only recommended installation for solid wood is nail/staple down. Engineered floors are multi-layered with a “face”, the top layer is the actual wood species. Similar to solids, they come in a variety of species, stains, and widths. They are usually 3/8” or ½” thick, can be installed nail/staple down, glue down, or float. Concrete surfaces require engineered floors, as they can’t be nailed into. Generally speaking, they tend to cost less than a similar solid version, providing a cost-effective option for upgrading to hardwood. Engineered floors are not laminate.
The most common concerns with wood floors are scratching and damage due to moisture exposure from pets and spilling. These floors solve both of these. The construction is usually a fused printed face onto a PVC or polymer core with (or without) a rubber or cork backing. This construction allows the planks to be 100% waterproof, as there are no wood or paper material. Because of using the embossing of grains & knots into the boards, the final product is very much like real wood. Waterproof planks can’t be scratched, there is no polyurethane. And as a final bonus, they are usually offered in very wide planks to give you the best possible look. This product is by far the fastest growing flooring in residential floors. If you have dogs that are hard on hardwood floors, give this product a very close consideration.
Usually installed “wall-to-wall”, carpet is an extremely cost-effective and comfortable flooring surface. Thanks to the latest repellence coating technology, most carpets are manufactured with stain resistance built into their fabrics, dramatically reducing the likelihood of permanent staining and allergen absorption. “Wall-to-wall” installation is accomplished by nailing tack strips in the parameter of the room, and the carpet is stretched and fastened over foam padding. The padding is essential to the feel and life of the carpet.
Completely man-made flooring, made with pressed boards and a printed veneer. The veneer is usually a woodprint, but stone or tile prints are offered as well. Laminates are scratch resistant and extremely durable, making them suitable for high traffic settings. Look-alike textured boards create laminates that are very difficult to distinguish from real wood. They are a very cost-effective option that can be float installed on both wood and concrete subfloors. We also offer waterproof laminate options. Do not overlook laminate as an option.
This is an excellent alternative to ceramic/porcelain tiles for two reasons: no grout is required and it can be glued to existing floors, so there is no need to remove existing vinyl sheets or to install cement boards. This will save a substantial amount from the labor cost of tile installation. Since it is a print, there are many different designs & sizes to choose from. If you want a more traditional tile look, it can always be installed with grout as well.

We contracted with Floor Advisor to replace our original carpets after getting two other estimates and had a wonderful experience. Bob, the owner, personally came to our house to talk about options and do the measurements. He always listened to our wants and needs and made excellent suggestions. Since we don't do this every day, Bob was very patient with our questions.
The pricing was very good and include everything we wanted; all we did was sit back and let them do all the work. The installers were prompt, very courteous, quiet, and respectful of our furniture. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and the house looks gorgeous.
VERY PLEASED with the customer service and, more importantly, the work.

VERY PLEASED with the customer service and, more importantly, the work.
I called Floor Advisor for an estimate after feeling quite deflated from another recent estimate due to the unexpected high cost. Once I made the call, it was only a couple of days later that the owner himself came to assess our needs and provide the estimate. He was able to do the calculations and provided an estimate on site... I was ELATED. The estimate (hardwood purchase/installation for 2 rooms, hardwood refinishing for our large foyer and staircase, and a hardwood repair in another room) was HALF the cost of our previous estimate which didn't include the staircase or the repair.
The formal estimate/contract was emailed to me 2 days later (which we signed immediately) and the work began a week later. The entire project only took 2 days and I couldn't be happier with the result. Thanks again!!
We had hard wood installed on the main level and carpeting upstairs. They also stained our rails to match. We could not be more pleased with the quality of products, very reasonable cost, and the courteous, skilled…

I am very pleased with Floor Advisor and the work they perform in my home. Bob came out to do the measurements and gave me a quote the next day. I was thrill with the price because it was a lot less then what other companies were charging. I did do some shopping around before I decide to go with Floor Advisor and their price were very reasonable. Other companies wanted an arm and leg for sanding and restraining my hardwood floors. I am very please with the work and the dedication of team that came out to perform the job. I will definitely come back to them for another job I have pending. Once again, thank you Bob and the team at Floor Advisor.

I called Bob at Floor Advisor because I needed an estimate to refinish my hardwood floors. After a few minutes on the phone we set up a time for the next morning. Bob called before he arrived as we had agreed the previous day. After greeting Bob at the door he put on shoe covers and proceeded to my hardwood floors.
I asked Bob what he thought about the condition of my floors. He was honest and said "why do want to refinish them?" After talking with Bob he explained that unless I wanted to change color my floors were fine. He was professional, kind, and thoughtful. He took the time to explain each area of concern. Bob did all of this knowing he wasn't making a dime. He actually was making a lot more.
This is the way to run a business. I will remember this and the next time I need flooring or refinishing Floor Advisor will be my first call. In addition, I will be recommending Floor Advisor to all my friends and family. Once again, thanks Bob and Floor Advisor.

Floor Advisor is an exceptional option for home owners seeking replacement or new flooring options. This is a family owned and run business. Bob and his father are truly professionals who offer outstanding service, know their business, and can offer their customers expert advise when making flooring choices. My wife and I sought and found Floor Advjsor which has an extensive selection of flooring options. Their assistance helped us select the right carpet and engineered wood for our basement project. Floor Advisor did such a great job of installing by being on time, performing a spectacular install, and cleaning up after completion all for a very reasonable price.

Installation is an extremely important part of the project. Once you have selected what type of floor to install, our experienced crews will install them thoroughly and efficiently. We never hire random subcontractors, our crews work strictly for Floor Advisor. We frequently visit our installation crew on sight to make sure that the project is proceeding as planned. Your confidence & convenience during installation is our top priority. All our professional installers have 10 or more years of experience.
The length of the installation process depends on the size and type of installation, amount of furniture (if any), and the type of floor being removed (if any). Most carpet installations can be completed on the same day, whereas tile installation requires an extra day for grouting. Sand & refinishing has a drying stage and based on size, can take 2 or more days. We can give you an accurate time estimate at your home consultation.
We offer in-home measurements! Our estimates are very detailed, providing a line-by-line explanation of the work & cost involved. All customers appreciate clarity and transparency. We provide a verbal, on-sight estimate and an emailed copy within 24 hours. Please contact us for assistance.
