Hire Pete’s to do it for you.
ALAS! Due to unexpectedly huge call volume, Bob's schedule is consistently booked through two months out! So, in an attempt to stem the flow of bid requests, we are limiting estimates to addresses in St. Paul and Roseville, and only for work that can begin two months from the day you call. We apologize, but Bob likes to spend his time actually sanding floors, not bidding them!
Bob Carlson is not called Pete, but he does own Pete’s Hardwood Floors. Of all the flooring stores in MN, Bob makes Pete's really incredible for these reasons: Bob doesn't supervise crews of roaming floor sanders - Bob bids your job. Bob sands your job, too (or installs, patches, recoats or otherwise makes it beautiful).
Very simple. No miscommunication. No bait and switch to an unnamed subcontractor.
Bob is very fussy.
He's been installing and sanding floors as an owner of Pete's for 21 years. He returns all phone calls and arrives on time.
He has a file full of references who would be happy to tell you that he worked in their homes, carefully and respectfully.
But Bob is not alone. Oh no. He has the backing of a storefront showroom, staffed with trained flooring professionals, where you can consult a living person about your project ideas, see colors and samples and learn about floor maintenance.
Alas, Bob is wonderful but he is but one man. And one man can only travel so far, so we have a limited geographic reach. Bob is currently taking jobs in St. Paul and Roseville. There is usually a two-month wait between a signed contract and the start of scheduled work in your property, especially in summer.
If you really are ready to get a bid — simply call the store at 651-698-5888.
Please don't expect to speak to Bob if you call the shop — he is on a jobsite making someone else's floor look pretty. But don't fret; the friendly staff at the store will take your name, number and job particulars and Bob will call you back to find you the perfect bid time when you can have his undivided attention.
While you're waiting patiently for your bid, you can:
