Company History

30 years ago in 1980, I was working in a factory setting up high-speed rewind machines when a layoff occurred. A longtime friend of mine had just started his own flooring company and asked if I would like to come aboard. Since I was very good working with my hands and did a lot of construction work with my father on our own home, I accepted and worked there the first few years. I learned quite a bit about installing hardwood and tile at that time. I had the privilege of installing the herring bone hardwood floors and the slate, marble work at Walter Payton's house. Shortly after working at Walter's house, I had a falling out with the owner of that company and proceeded to start Solid Flooring Co. (1984). Since the start of SFC. I have worked in many prestigious homes. Custom boarders/inlays/medallions etc. are not a problem for us, both in hardwood & tile/stone.

"Tom Wurster from Solid Wood Flooring did an outstanding job replacing all the floors on the first level of our home. They are dependable, trustworthy and knowledgeable about hard wood flooring. Tom and his crew did the work for us before we moved into our new home. We were moving from New Jersey and Tom helped with the selection and ordering of materials through phone conversations and installed our floors before we ever met and moved in. I would highly recommend Tom for all your hard wood needs. Since then Tom has done 2 other projects for us and again he met all our expectations and we were completely satisfied. Thanks Tom for a great job! "
