A selection of 245 homeowner reviews:
“They were clean, they were timely, and they were wonderful—just wonderful. We've used A.L. Thomas twice. We had to have our hardwood floors refinished when we moved in, and then later, we had the linoleum made into hardwood. They have been wonderful. They get an A, of course. We would use them again if we need them.”
“We were delighted with the quality of the work. The nice folks were very considerate about keeping the house clean, and when they got through, it looked absolutely fantastic. On a scale of one to ten, they got an eleven.”
“I think the finished product turned out beautiful—A.”
“We were very pleased with the work they did. They refinished some hardwood floors, and they're coming back to refinish some additional floors. I'd say they're an A+.”
“They were punctual, completed the work on time, and there were no hidden fees. They earned an A+.”
“It went as expected—A+.”
“Hardwoods. They get an A+ grade.”
“I've already recommended them. They get an A+ from me.”
“It went smoothly. It's an A from me.”
“They finished the job on time as they were supposed to. I'd probably give them an A. I'm very likely to recommend.”
“They did what they needed to do, and were willing to come back if something was not finished correctly. They deserve an A.”
“They were matching existing hardwood floors. I'd give them an A- grade.”
“They were putting in brand new hardwood flooring. They get an A.”
“They were refinishing and installing hardwoods in different rooms, and new carpet. I'd give them an A.”

“They get an A grade.”
“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.”
“I have a lot of confidence in A.L. Thomas because of their level of experience and the quality of the people that they brought into my home. They installed some new hardwoods in our renovation, and they refinished our old hardwoods at the same time. They're an A-grade company.”
“It was very easy to understand what they were going to do, and they had great follow-up. They refinished the hardwood floors in the house I was selling and in the house that I was moving to. I'd say they get an A grade.”
“A.L. Thomas refinished our hardwood floors. Any little details that we wanted them to fix, they were really responsive and quick to do it. They moved our furniture, and they were very careful—there was no damage. They were a referral from a friend. I would give them an A.”
“I thought they were flexible, thorough, and hardworking. They did a great job. Everything they did was really solid. They stained and finished the hardwood floors in our house. They were a referral from a friend. I'd grade them as an A.”
“They redid our hardwood floors, and we are happy with their work. They were very prompt and courteous, and they did the work that they were supposed to do. They were very thorough and professional. They refinished our main level of hardwood floors—our living room, den, kitchen, breakfast room, and keeping room. They get an A rating.”
“I would give A.L. Thomas an A grade.”
“They got the job done when they said they were going to get it done. They refinished my floor. I found them in Best Pick Reports. I would give them an A.”
“A.L. Thomas was fantastic. The owner was just incredible, and it was great quality. We had our hardwoods refinished and sanded. Later, they put a separate piece of flooring in, and it looked like part of the original work. We thought there would be a lot of dust, but it never was dusty. They're A+.”
“I liked their professionalism, quickness, and timeliness, and the workmanship was excellent. The floors are gorgeous; they match almost perfectly with my older floors, and they're beautiful. I would give them an A rating.”
“A.L. Thomas gets the highest marks all the way across. They do great work, they show up when they're supposed to, and they're fabulous and very trustworthy. They redid my floors. I have used them for at least 20 years, and I'd absolutely rate them as an A.”
“They did floor refinishing, and it was fantastic work—A+.”
“I had an excellent time with A.L. Thomas. We had a floor that had to be replaced, and they came out, removed the old floor, installed the new floor, and matched the new floor to the old stain—perfect match. I'd give them an A.”
“They're very efficient, they show up exactly at the time that he says he's going to do it, and he's out when he says he's going to be out. The work done is probably the best I've ever seen, and that's true—I'm not just blowing his horn. This guy has been doing his handiwork for us for over 25 years, so I'm extremely happy with them. They're an A for sure.”
“I used A.L. Thomas. When we first moved in eight and a half years ago, people were giving us huge estimates to restore our floors. As it turns out, A.L. Thomas just put some wood putty down. They said, 'With the naked eye, if you look, you'll see it, but it'll buy you some time.' They were honest and reputable. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were wonderful. They did an installation for me. I decided to go with them because they were in Best Pick Reports; we got the name from that, and then we looked at one of the big companies that's well known and advertised in Atlanta. We interviewed both of them, and we just liked A.L. Thomas. The owner is very personable and honest, and he's just a good man. We felt that the people who installed it were very, very good about it, so we were very pleased. I would give them an A+.”
“They're excellent. The quality of the work they did made the experience positive. They have excellent employees that repair and polish floors. It was just an overall great experience. We've used them several times. The last time, they polished the floors and put down polyurethane. We've been using them for about eight years because of their quality workmanship. They're A+.”
“They did an excellent job.”
“It was great. They were wonderful. They did everything they were supposed to. My client recommended them, and I couldn't have been happier. I give them an A.”
“I am very happy with them. I've used them for years, and I'm just very happy to have them in my house. They're very good, and they've been in business for a long time; I've used them many, many times. I'm glad to give them a recommendation. I'd give them an A. They're excellent.”
“They did a refinish on one of my hardwoods. They were on time, they were good at picking up little errors in the woodwork that they could repair if need be, and I think they were really diligent in terms of moving all the furniture around and taking care of all the areas and everything. I was favorably impressed when they got through. I'd probably give those guys an A.”
“The floors look awesome. I wasn't here when they were doing the work, but it holds up. I'd give them an A for sure.”
“They refinished my floors. They came in with an incredibly good reputation, and a friend referred them to me. We were out of town for this whole experience, so they were very trustworthy; that's the kind of reputation they have. They were great with communication. Everything that they said they were going to do, they did. Then, during the follow-up, when there were a couple of little areas, they came out and fixed them. I have no complaints. I would give them an A.”
