AA floor is Toronto's best kept secret. Unassuming, unpretentious, and offers superb service and installation. Don't let the low-key environment fool you.
I compared several hardwood floor shops around downtown Toronto, Markham, Scarborough and finally decided to go to AA Floors.
AA Floors was one of the few shops that had a genuine interest in helping clients. The prices were fair not inflated like the fancier showrooms.
Tip: Go during the weekday to get the best service. Weekends are extremely busy (which is a good sign I guess).
My project was small (300 sqft), but Peter Lech gave me sound, unbiased advice throughout the project.
If you're picky and have tons of questions, talk to Peter. He wasn't pushy and always had the best intentions with the project. His patience seemed infinite.
The store carries entry-level to higher-end products (ie. Preverco). I purchased a hand-scrapped, 5-inch wide engineer hardwood from Superior. A bit pricey but worth every penny.
Communication by email was thorough and timely.
On the installation day, the installer (Ross) arrived on time. He installed the hardwood with meticulous precision and care. I ordered two flush-mount vents which require a bit of skill to cut (Image attached. Vent wasn't stained yet in the photo). I was amazed at how perfect the cuts were.
At the end, there were zero errors in cutting. I ended up with 8 pieces left over and not a box to spare.
