We proudly say WE ARE THE BEST:
- In our Excellent customer service
- In our choice of selected high quality products
- Providing hard-to-find products
- In our large inventory
- We always spend the time to help you with advice over the phone, emails and via our forum.
We test and check every single product we post on our web site or sell in our store.
We test new products by giving some for free to our selected contractors. We ask them to use them and give us their opinion. I myself have tested and/or installed most of the products we sell. So I am able to help you with your questions. More importantly, I can determine if a new product should be sold by Flooring Supply Shop or not.
I am so confident about the line of products we sell that our return policy is the best nationwide:
In some cases I have returned the full amount when asked even after almost 90 days.
Most products sold on other websites are sold with self-interest. Others will say only good things about the product just to make the sale. They have no other choice; they need the sale.
However, FlooringSupplyShop.com has years of experience and many choices with our entire line of products. As a Licensed General Contractor, Flooring Contractor and ASB, I have lots of choices. I use my wealth of experience to select some of the best products that I have used over my many years of field testing and working with different lines of products.
Yes, I refuse to sell some well known brands and allow other known and lesser known brands. Some very well known brands I have completely removed from my web site and store, when either the pricing or product itself does not make sense. Products that are too costly, or have poor performance, or require excessive time and labor to install properly don’t make the cut.
When it comes to selecting new products for our website or store, I consider a few facts:
1. Quality of product (rough and finish).
2. Cost of product
3. Cost of installation.
4. Is there a better product for the same or less money?
5. Ability and desire of manufacturer to offer full warranty and technical support.
Then and only then do I directly contact the manufacturers (never the middlemen). I negotiate and sign contracts to get the best possible pricing. I pass the lowest possible pricing on to you, our customer.
In some cases like tempered glass shelves, I discovered they are very expensive on other websites. I could not find it cheaper anywhere, so I asked a glassmaker that I have given business to for years to make me some.
We now have tempered glass shelves with :
- My own personal design,
- A nicer finish,
- Hard to find sizes
- A reasonable price.
I found out that SunTouch radiant heating systems are the best in the market for few very important reasons :
I make a big effort to find the right products for you. So when you see a new product on our web site, just remember I put in days, weeks and sometimes months of research, negotiation, and trips to other states and countries to get you the best available. You can be assured that you are getting the best.
We have a Warehouse/Store
Most online stores are just a drop ship site. We proudly invite you to our beautiful warehouse showroom store. While you are here we kindly offer you coffee, cold water, cookies, and good candies.
I want you to know that I myself do the hard work and long hours of finding and selecting the best materials and products for the best prices possible for you.
I read all your emails
All emails are sent to the appropriate department, and a copy comes directly to me. I answer many of your emails personally. I make sure any issues are followed up with the department mangers. I follow each email until all issues are solved, all requests satisfied, and all questions and or return requests are answered, often within minutes. Just read some of the testimonials on our web site to see how we take care of you.
