“They did flooring, and we had a great experience. The sales rep was really wonderful, and the crew was great. They did a really good job, so we're pleased. I like the product, and I would recommend them.”

“Buffaloe Floor Covering was fabulous. I liked everything. They were professional and quick. They replaced the carpeting in my house and redid the tile floor in my bathroom. I'd give them an A. I have already recommended them.”

“They put hardwood flooring down in two rooms on the second floor, and now they're busy putting down 14, 000 square feet of hardwood flooring on the ground floor. I'd give them an A. Their customer service is excellent. They call ahead of time and let me know when they're going to be there. If there's a problem, they call and give me a heads up. We're using some unusual flooring that they were not initially familiar, but they've educated themselves. I would easily recommend them.”

“It was excellent. They replaced the tile and granite around the fireplace. They did an excellent job. I'd give them an A.”

“We had a very good experience. They put new hardwood floor in my kitchen, den, and many parts of the first floor of the house. They were very good, very good. I dealt with one person most of the time. He was very professional and proactive. We worked together in terms of planning and making sure things are done based on the time frame we had. I'd give them an A rating.”

“They did put new carpet in for me. I used them. They did a good job. I'd give them an A.”

“It was good. I only bought some wood flooring from them. I'd give them an A.”

“We had a rug made. They did a great job. We took home several samples, they were fine with that, and the saleswoman helped me make a decision. It was very quick. I'd give them an A rating. I recommend them to lots of people.”

“I know the owner. He's a great guy. They earned an A.”

“They did a carpet repair for us a while ago. Everything's fine. I'd give them an A. Everything was fine.”

“They did my carpet for me. They did a good job, on time, and they were very courteous. I'd grade them an A.”

“We had some hardwood floors installed last year. I like that they were family-owned and had some longevity. They were in the neighborhood and their installers were very competent and dedicated. I'd give them an A grade.”

“It was great. They did a great job. They have a good product, and good service. The installers did a really good job. I have no complaints. I'd definitely give them an A. It is very likely I would recommend them.”

“Everything turned out very well. They put a wood floor on an upstairs area, the staircase itself, the risers, and the treads. They did it all in a day and a half. It turned out very well. Very courteous and clean. I'd give them an A. I would definitely recommend them.”

“We had three different things that Buffaloe Floor Covering did, and they were by three different subcontractors, but the company itself was easy to work with. Everyone that they sent out was efficient and clean. They made sure that everything was done right, and they were receptive to feedback. If I was like, 'This doesn't look quite right', they would make sure everything was correct or done properly. We had the entry tiles demolished and replaced, we had engineered hardwood removed and replaced, and then I had actual hardwood fixed. I'll give them an A-. The refinish of the real hardwood ended up taking a whole week longer than anticipated, because they had trouble with trying to get the coloring right. They worked their best to do it though, and it was close enough. I didn't have the floors completely redone, just the areas that were messed up because of foundation work I had done.”

“Buffaloe Floor Covering was on time, efficient, and helpful when I ordered the flooring. They installed carpet for me, and they helped me out with finding the right carpet match. I would rate them an A.”

“Buffaloe Floor Covering did it all in one day, and the two guys they sent out were good and knowledgeable. It's a good job. They installed carpet in the entire upstairs. I have no complaints, so they're an A grade.”

“Buffaloe Floor Covering did everything they said they were going to do in a timely manner and then followed up. It's a good company run by family people, so it was a good experience. They installed new wood flooring in two-thirds of the house—the kitchen, living area, dining room, and laundry room. They deserve an A. They were great.”

“Buffaloe Floor Covering did my carpet six months back. The carpet and everything is fine. They're an A, because I don't have any problems with them.”

“I think the salesman was quite up front and straightforward, and the employees did a good job. There's a lady in the neighborhood here that we know really well, and when we bought this house, she recommended them. They put in hardwood floors.

“Buffaloe Floor Covering did work for me this year. It was just a good, complete job. They were doing a linoleum floor for me in the kitchen. I had used them before, and they'd done a good job the previous year. I would recommend them to a friend. I'll give them an A-.”

“First of all, we liked the time that the salesman spent with us. He was patient in helping us with our decision. He helped make us aware of the products, the difference in prices, and explained why there was a difference in the different qualities of the carpet. We liked the fact that he came out and did a good job with measuring, and we were happy with the workers they sent. They were putting carpeting down for us. As a matter of fact, we're going to follow through and probably have more put down. They're definitely an A, no question.”

“We like everything about Buffaloe Floor Covering. They put new carpet in the major rooms, and they earned an A grade.”

“They did hardwoods for us. It was a pretty big job, and they did a very, very nice job of working with us and helping us. Our home was not empty, so they had to help us move furniture. We're extremely pleased with the product as well as the service. They were very professional. They were referred by our general contractor—he has about 30 years in the industry, and he offered to refer them to us. We met with Larry and just thought he was very professional; we enjoyed visiting with Larry. He gave us a bid, and we looked it over and talked about the options. He explained clearly what those options were, and we're extremely pleased with the work. It's an A+ from us.”

“Buffaloe Floor Covering did work for me a while ago. They restretched the carpet in our bedroom and relaid carpet in a closet, and we had a very good experience with them. They were willing to make a second trip out—even though they were far away—when I acquired the carpet I needed to put in the closet. They were just super about the customer service. They earned their A from me.”

“They did floor covering of wood laminate and tile in a rental house. They did what they said were going to do for the price they said and in the time frame they promised. Their work was excellent.”

“We had carpet replacement and wood floor refinishing work done by by Buffaloe. They were fantastic. They were completely professional. I liked that the owner came out to our house, walked around, and gave us some really good recommendations. We were out of town when the floors were refinished, and he came over personally every day to unlock the door for his crew. Then, he came back at the end of the day to lock it back it up, which I just thought was above and beyond. I liked that I can trust them with my home. We ended up having carpet damage not long after it was installed—someone was in the house cleaning, and they damaged the carpet—and so Buffaloe came out promptly and replaced it. We still paid, but they made an effort to get it resolved quickly so that the color matched. We had a really good experience with them—they get an A.”

“I was looking for somebody that would give me a teaching moment—I didn't know a lot about the type of flooring I wanted, and they weren't just trying to sell something and get me out of the way. They were courteous and informative. I had a lot of other people that wanted the business, but nobody measured up to them. They put in maple hardwood for me, and I'd give them an A+.”

“Buffaloe Floor Covering's salespeople are just helpful, thorough, and pleasant. They did carpet for me, and I had no problems—they did A+ work.”

“We've used them for carpet work in the past, and we've always gotten good service and good quality from them. I chose them because we'd used them a few years ago. They do an A+ job.”

“They installed engineered wood on the first floor of the house. I went over there and talked to the owner, and it worked out good. They were there on time. The workers were great—they're very professional, and they got done on time. Everything was good; overall, it was an A+ experience.”

“They did wood floors for me. I had bids from two or three other companies, and I chose Buffaloe. They did everything they said they were going to do, they did it in a proper amount of time, they cleaned up afterward, and I didn't have any flaws or any problems with anything. I don't think you could ask for anything better than that—it's an A+ business.”

“I chose them through word of mouth. The house has been sold, but their work was A+.”

“Buffaloe Floor Covering was very prompt. They put in a carpet for a property that was being sold. I'd I originally found them through our real estate agent, and they did a good job. They didn't stop and chitchat; they took care of everything that needed to be done. I'd give them an A.”

One of their workers wanted to show me a place that had had a stain on it—he was really proud of the job he did. 'See? See?' he said. I said, 'Well, that just looks great!' because it did look great. I chose them because my husband has used them, and I'd give a grade of A.”

“Buffaloe Floor Covering put in some hardwood floors for me in Houston. The quality was good, and they were as courteous as possible. They earned an A.”

“They're the leader in the area where I live, and they've been there quite some time. Buffaloe Floor Covering is a very nice company. They did vinyl floor in my kitchen. They were very polite—the men that came and installed it were very nice. They got the job done and got out. I don't have any complaints, so I'll give them an A.”

Everything was clean when they left—they didn't mess anything up. I didn't have any problems with them. A realtor that I've deal with recommended them. I'd grade them A.”

“I was looking for someone to put some carpet in my house, and my mom told me about Buffaloe, so I went up there. Now, I'm a customer of theirs. They did a good job. I liked their work—it's an A-grade company.”

“I've had several things done by them; they put in a hardwood floor for me, they redid my old hardwood and then tiled my bathroom and put in a stand-in shower, and they built a new shower for me. They were easy to work with, and they planned everything. They helped me understand what I needed to pick out and what I needed to do—they walked me through it all. They were professional and very nice. Everybody that came to the house was very friendly. They were happy to accommodate the little things at the end that I wanted fixed or changed. I would say that overall, they were an A-. There were just a few little things here and there I had to have redone; they were very minor things—I'm just a perfectionist, and I want things a certain way. Buffaloe really did a great job.”

“We have used Buffaloe Floor for many, many years; not just for this job—I think we go back 20 or 25 years. They've done about six different jobs for us, including remodeling our bathrooms, and they are super. Even long after the carpet was put down—over a year later—when it kind of stretched at one point, I called them and they came out to tighten the carpet and did not charge us a penny. They're very, very good—A+.”
