Hire Pete’s to do it for you.

Bob CarlsonOur apologies, but we have temporarily suspended all estimating due to a serious health issue within the Pete's organization. We are not sure when this issue will be resolved. If you would like to be notified when we resume bidding, please call the store at 651-698-5888 and leave us your name and number; we will let you know as soon as we are back to full capacity. It means a great deal to us that you considered us for your flooring work and we hope to be able to serve you in the near future.


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:
