We are loving our new Hardwood flooring installed by the team at Happy Home Flooring. Dan and his crew were on time every day and the installation team put our furniture back without causing any damage. Every day before leaving Dan and his team made sure everything was cleaned up. We enjoyed the experience from beginning to end. We are also loving how easy our new Hardwood floors are to clean. Our kids already had a mess and clean-up was not an issue.
