The person that came out and gave the quote was very professional and on time. He gave a lot of information. The final job came in exactly as quoted—there weren't any surprises. The supervisor that was monitoring the workers and giving them their instructions came out every day, sometimes twice a day, and made sure everything was clear. He followed up on any concerns or questions I might have had. Our flooring was part carpet and part builder hardwood. The previous hardwood was glued down, so they had to pull up all the glued hardwood and the rug. They put in a higher grade of hardwood that was notched and nailed into the subfloor. They also pulled the carpet off of the stairs and did hardwood planking on my stairs. I would rate them as an A.
A.L. Thomas did work for us, and we were delighted with them. They were excellent. I'm actually in the construction business, so I'm around construction people all the time in what I do. These guys were cool. One guy was really young—he is the son of one of the owners. So, you figure if the son of one of the owners is coming to your house, he is not going to really screw up a lot. The other guy who was his boss on the job was really professional. He knew how to do stuff, and he had been around the business. This guy knew how to come in. They worked very clean and very fast. Their work was just excellent. The guy that was in charge was superb. They get an A from me.
We used them for several floors in our house for some waxing and buffing and so forth. They did a great job—they were wonderful. Then, they did a small space in a room at my son's house where they actually refinished the entire floor. He couldn't be there, so I babysat the house for him while they came in four days in a row to do it. They just did a fantastic job, and I have recommended them to the people in the neighborhood. I would give them an A.
They were really good. They were strictly business—they didn't fool around or anything. They just went right to work. I had a leak. They worked on a slab, so they had to pull up the oak floor to get to where the leak was. When the leak was fixed, they had to get pieces of wood to patch the floor. The gentleman said he ordered it. It was pure oak, and they had to find pieces to fit the area that they had to tear up. A.L. Thomas is an A+. They were extremely nice and very professional in what they did.
They refinished all my hardwood floors. They sanded them down, took all the finish off, and put a new finish on. We had had the floors redone one time before, and the redo was not very good. We have not been happy, but we are thrilled with the job A.L. Thomas did. They did everything they said they would do, and if they did anything differently than they said, it was better—A+.
It was great. They sanded the hardwood floors. They were great all around, and they showed up on time every day. It was a weeklong job. The guys that did the job were polite and knowledgeable, and they did an excellent job. They kept the majority of the dust down. They a great job, and I would certainly recommend them and give them an A.
I have no bad remarks. They showed up on time and did quality work. The job was refinishing of the hardwood flooring. I'd rate A.L. Thomas as an A.
They were fine. I have used them before, and I have no issues with them whatsoever. They put down a new floor in my home office. They took up carpeting and put down hardwood flooring. I just wanted to upgrade it. When I used them before, I had a toilet overflow, and they were the company that came out to replace the hardwoods. Because they did a good job, I asked them to come back for more work. They deserve an A.
A.L. Thomas is great. I would give them an A grade.
They get an A grade from me.
