Customer Testimonials

After meeting with several companies, we felt confident choosing The Hardwood Giant Co. for our hardwood installation. Phillip was easy to work with and very professional. He was prompt to respond to emails and always arrived on time. We were impressed with the selection of quality laminate flooring to choose from which held an unbeatable price. Each step of the process was explained to us and we truly felt that our best interest was being met. Installation for our entire downstairs only took two days and the team did a great job of cleaning up before they left. We absolutely love the way our floors turned out! If you are looking for a friendly, reliable and dependable company to do your job, give them a call. We will be recommending The Hardwood Giant Co. to all our friends and family!

These guys did an unreal job at my home in Waxhaw. Pros from start to finish. Do yourself a favor and give Phil a call, you won't regret it!

Phil and his team installed and finished approx 900 square feet of gorgeous hardwood flooring in our home two weeks ago. Owner was extremely professional and quick to communicate. Estimate and final cost were extremely competitive and fair. His team was a dream. We've done a lot of remodeling and this is the best team we've encountered. Quiet, polite, clean, kind to my kids and dog, patient with questions, timely, and industrious. Work finished on schedule and floors are beyond beautiful. Little touches like reducers and quarter round are lovely. We couldn't be happier and are planning to have them back to put additional flooring in this spring.

Phil and his crew were great! Phil was able to come out right away for a quote and begin the next week! He was helpful in fitting to our budget and we could not be happier with the results! We had about 1700-1800 square feet of hard wood floors refinished (original to the 1972 house). They look brand new, everyone that sees them is blown away by the work! Phil was completely professional and called or emailed my husband at least once a day to update on the progress. He was extremely responsive and helpful! The floors were finished right on time and Phil even through in a few extra bits of molding around our fireplace and between our kitchen and den to make sure our final result went beyond our expectations! He really knows his stuff and we felt confident we were going to get a great product when we were finished. We had another quote that was a little cheaper, but Phil and his crew was SO worth the extra few $100. We absolutely got what we paid for! Don't look any further, Phil and his crew at Hardwood Giant will NOT disappoint!

From start to finish, the entire process went exactly as Phil predicted. Except for one important distinction: It was a thousand times better than I imagined. I never doubted him from the initial meeting, but when remodeling, it rarely goes as planned.

He explained with sufficient detail to ease my mind. Wood is organic and unpredectible. His stain absorbed and resulted in an impressive deep, rich color.

We happened to be onsite during some of the work, and was blown away by the precision of the staff. For example, the guy cutting the quarter rounds made one trip to the chop saw for EACH ROOM ! I still don't understand how he did that.

Contact me with any questions and I'll be happy to ease your mind.

We recently had beautiful hardwood floors installed in our entire house, 2000+ square feet, by The Hardwood Giant. After much research, we decided to trust Phil and his crew with the job of moving furniture, taking up and disposing of carpet, vinyl tile and laminate flooring and installing the new oak floor, mainly because of the many positive reviews this company had. We were not disappointed! The two-man team who took care of the entire job in under one week were professional, polite, friendly and exceptionally hard working. We were particularly impressed that Phil and his installers were always on time, from the first consultation appointment to the last day on the job. A really rare quality here in Charlotte. We are delighted with the results and are very happy to recommend this company to anyone who wants a flooring job done the way it should be.

Phil and his team were professional, trustworthy, prompt, and did an amazing job on our hardwood floors! We interviewed 4 companies before deciding to go w/ The hardwood Giant and we are very glad we did. I will use them again when we add hardwood to the 2nd and 3rd floor. (he did our complete first floor...refinished a portion and added new woods where carpet was)

Phil and his team are absolutely fantastic to work with. Phil was extremely responsive and helped us with recommendations for flooring options based on our space and budget. Phil and team were always on time and did a great job of keeping us informed during every phase of the project. We are thrilled with how the new floors look and would absolutely hire Phil again. We have already recommended him to a few friends.
