Excel Hardwood Floors Testimonials | Minneapolis, Minnesota

"The floors are AMAZING! Who did them for you?" That's the first thing we hear from everyone. The next thing we hear is how cool the vents are and the framing around the fireplace. Then it's the transition from room to room. There are so many things that set you above the rest. The knowledge, experience, honesty, craftsmanship, and personal touch you and your team bring are awesome. You pay attention to the smallest details while keeping it dust free. You are also very accommodating to our needs as well during this process. Thank you for taking the time and having patience to answer all of our questions. We felt like your number one goal was our satisfaction and we are 100% satisfied and truly grateful. Best decision we made!

Our light/natural maple hardwood flooring showed the wear, scratches, and stains of 15+ years of daily use. Excel Hardwood refinished our floor and the results exceeded our expectations. The depth of finish is richer than when the floors were newly installed. Exceptional work and our appreciation to Troy and his associates.
- Pete Decesare, Eden Prairie
Crew did a very good job of matching the new floor with the old floor. Surprised at the almost 100% "lack of" dust. A friend had their floors done by ???? and warned us of dust problems.
- Ed Thom, Richfield
Your guys rocked in finishing the job early and the floor looks outstanding. Thanks.
- Chuck Mundahl, Champlin
The floors are beautiful - the old and new floors blended together perfectly. Your team did a great job and are great craftsmen.

Excel Hardwood Floors was very easy to work with. They did everything they said they would do, they answered emails promptly, and the price was right. The workers were pleasant and did a spectacular job on our floors. Excel Hardwood Floors was recommended to me and I will definitely recommend them.
- Cheryl & Marlin Grose, Minneapolis
I had hardwood flooring installed on the top and main levels of my house. The crew were all personable and worked very efficiently as a team. They took care to ensure my comfort while I needed to stay at the house overnights during the install. Part of my project included moving furniture, the crew somehow remembered where each item went and even centered things exactly as I had them after the floor was installed. They cleaned up each day before they left and wiped everything down at the end of the project. The workmanship on the floors & especially the custom carpentry work on the stairs was impressively meticulous and precise. Everything looks amazing! I will definitely recommend Excel Hardwood Floors to anyone looking for quality work.
- Holly Bear, Prior Lake
Good job! I was very pleased with the results and professionalism of your staff.
- Kevin Heath, Andover

- Katie Schulte, Minnetrista
We were extremely pleased with our new hardwood floors. The team from Excel was fantastic and very professional. We had some existing floors repaired as well as new floors added and both floors look fabulous. We highly recommend Excel Hardwood Floors. They have mastered the 'dustless' process - our house looked wonderful after the job was completed with very little cleaning.
- The Fluhrers, Prior Lake
The guys at Excel were a pleasure to work with. They went the extra mile to get the job done right and were accommodating to my needs. My new floor and railing are not just solid as oak, but beautiful as artwork.

- K. Lind, Dayton
Floors came out excellent! Great work and everything was cleaned up each and every day! Thank you for the great work!
- Jim Larson, Minneapolis
Thank you so much for the great work. Your team had the utmost patience and answered all of our questions and never made me feel like I was a bother. We are so thrilled with the results. Some things that would have helped ease my mind: doing a walk through before the work began since it had been a year since the estimate; seeing stain options ahead of time or know what the breadth of options would be. Thanks so much!
- Jane-Marie Bloomberg, Eden Prairie
Very nice job. We received a fair estimate, the work was done to our satisfaction and was completed to our schedule. Also, nice people to deal with. Thanks.
- Dave B. :: Anoka, MN

- Alan and Kathryn Nordby :: Eden Prairie, MN
Thank you so much for the amazing floors and trim! We cannot tell you enough how much we LOVE it! We've gotten so many compliments! The work that you do is truly top notch. You treated our home with the utmost respect, when you say 99% dust free, boy do you mean it. I knew from the minute that Troy did our estimate we would go with Excel because of how knowledgeable and great Troy was. Cindi definitely followed through on that with her prompt and awesome customer service. We will definitely use Excel again for our next home and would highly recommend anyone to Excel. Thank you so much Troy, Cindi, and Team!
- Anh and Calvin :: Eden Prairie, MN
Our floors look beautiful. We had our old hardwood sanded and refinished. Everything was done as promised, no hidden costs. Everything explained upfront. Complete information on what to expect before, during and after job. Was worth "moving out" of our house for a few days. Don't want to hide the floors with furniture!!
- Rebekah and Joel Kielbusch :: Rosemount, MN
Excellent workmanship by Matthew and Alex who are very professional and polite. Also other two guys the next day. Excel, a GREAT company to do business with!

- Anonymous :: Andover, MN
Very happy with the work. The floors are fantastic! The work crew could not have been nicer. Great guys!
- Anonymous :: Oak Grove, MN
First and foremost the floors are absolutely beautiful! and this old house was a challenge -- baseboards showing a half-inch gap once carpeting was removed, old patching done badly, and holes where radiator pipes had been. You did a spectacular "fix" on these!! We left town during work, and "final finish" was a just a little too tight, timewise; but, we are very happy with the final product! Johnnie and Troy were great to work with!
- Jo Ellen Lundblad :: St. Paul, MN
Paid great attention to detail. The best looking wood stairs I have seen!
- Ken Stangler :: Blaine, MN

Thank you for accommodating our travel schedule! What a great crew and wonderful floor. Beautiful! Amazed of how little dust accumulated. Very impressed! Best looking floor in town!! Your suggestion to replace the boards rather than to try a bleach remedy sold me. The repair looks great and undetectable. Thanks again.

- Grant & Barbie Schmalzer, Andover
We are very happy with not only the finished product, but the whole process. Your company is top notch, very professional, and skilled. We felt comfortable with the security of our home, being out-of-town while floor was installed. We very much appreciated Troy checking on our house the day after job was completed, found our furnace to not be working, then taking time to diagnose furnace malfunction, purchasing and replacing the part needed and got our furnace running again. Talk about going above and beyond the call of duty. I would highly recommend your company to anyone needing hardwood floor installation or refinishing. Excellent clean-up, as well. Thank-you again!
- Claire Stortz, Blaine
We are very pleased with the work Trent did as he does very fine work. He was very neat and cleaned up after the job very well. It is evident that he takes great pride in his work and is a very nice person to work with. The whole job from our first call and the estimate through the follow up has been very professional and courteous. We certainly will recommend Excel Hardwood Floors to our family and friends.
- Norm & Berniece Ruthenbeck, Edina
Excel Hardwood was professional from start to finish. I was very pleased with the clear communication and quality work. I am impressed by their attention to building an ongoing relationship. It speaks volumes about their commitment to service and quality.

- Gerald Salitros, Golden Valley
Troy was confident that he could bring my water-damaged wood floor back to life. He and his crew did a professional repair and the refinished floors are beautiful! Drew was especially helpful taking extra care to match wood to be pieced in. The job was done on schedule and everyone was great to deal with. Thanks.
- Christine, Victoria
I looked for a company who could refinished my floors in the yellow pages. After talking with 3 companies and 2 companies who had voice mail (will not give business to a voice mail) I decided Excel Hardwood Floors was the company I wanted to give me an estimate. Their estimate was exactly what I thought it should cost. They scheduled me immediately, working around my schedule and they arrived on time! They were meticulous during the entire process. I have never experienced a company who takes so much pride in their work. The floors took 3 days to complete. The exact amount of days they indicated on the estimate. My floors look new and beautiful. Excel is a company I will refer again, and again and again! Should I ever need my floors refinished in the future, I will definitely use Excel Hardwood Floors!
- Linda Williamson, Prior Lake
Floor looks great, thanks! I'd love a reminder email in a couple years to schedule a buff and recoat!
