FR Review:
"Top-notch" is the consensus among patrons of Absolute Hardwood Flooring. The firm was established in 1993 by Chris Jordan and Jerry Schumacher, who met in the sixth grade. After working for another flooring company in the early nineties, the two friends decided to branch out on their own. What started as a two-man firm is now a well-run 56-man company. The firm is licensed, bonded and insured and is a member of the NWFA.

Absolute focuses on wood flooring, particularly installation, finishing and staining. The team at Absolute is also adept at custom fabrication and installing inlays and medallions. Custom hardwood staircases are one of the more popular requests from clients, and the firm's work in this area has been featured in various issues of Architectural Digest. The company's 2,000 square foot showroom is open to the public and has a wide inventory of hardwood floors for retail. Absolute also has a 3,000 square foot in-house millshop, further ensuring quality control.

Absolute works with the top architects, contractors, designers and developers in the area, but will accommodate homeowners as well. Though most of their work consists in new renovations in the residential sector, the firm has done a handful of commercial projects, such as The Resort at Singer Island, The Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach and The Sunrise Theater in Fort Pierce. Pricing is done per project, every job "judged by its own merits." For smaller refinishing or maintenance jobs, an hourly rate of $55 applies, with minimums ranging from $250 to $500. A typical installation project runs in the realm of $10,000 to $80,000, but we hear the firm "won't turn their noses up on one-room projects." Although Absolute's pricing registers on the higher end of the scale, satisfied patrons assure us that for service that is "second to none," the cost is worth every penny.

Representative Client Comments:
"Excellent with deadlines. Very flexible with working nights or weekends. I cannot say enough good things about their work ethic." "Truly a master of the dark stain. Their finishes are amazing." "A bit pricier than most, but you get what you pay for." "Their workers are all in-house which ensures a level of quality that you can't get with subcontractors."
