Hosking Hardwood Flooring Customer Reviews
Hi I purchased about $9000 worth of flooring and materials. I have not received them so I can not comment on it. Their shipping is severely lacking. DO NOT LET THEM SHIP VIA "ESTES" you will get a run around and they sub contract the work. Order was on their Docs in the next town, They sent it over an hour a way to the sub con and will not give me a number to contact them. By the way this is all in Massachusetts where Hoskins is located. Not Happy!!
Hosking Hardwood response - Phillip we moved your comment from the bottom up to the top of this page, we apologize for the freight company's mix up with your original delivery. Apparently Estes freight has just now started subcontracting some of their residential deliveries out to subcontractors but cannot understand why they did not give you their number to call (we are looking into it) We hope that you will not have any problems with their delivery tomorrow if you do please call us. Thank you for your flooring order!
"I just left your company and glowing review on Google. We received our floors on time and couldn't be happier with the service, speed of delivery, and price point!! Your site is very informative as well which makes buying experience so much better than going to a big box store."
- Ryan, Kendall Park, NJ
"I'm about 3.5 boxes into my first ten cartons, and I am so happy more is on its way next week. I may do my whole house in it. It is SO beautiful. The Lauzon product is amazing. So perfect. Such flawless craftsmanship. It is a great pleasure to work with and produces professional looking results with little effort. I'm recommending them and you to anyone looking for wood flooring. I called to check that my order was still on track and got a prompt call back that my order missed the truck and will be late. Great product, solid customer service. You folks are the best!"
Thanks for your help and Happy Fourth of July,
- John, Santa Rosa CA
"I purchased and installed about 1000 sf of Mont-Royal Hardwood Flooring SERIES NAME: 3-1/4 IN. Select and Better Solid maple flooring. The material was awesome with almost no waste and better than expected fit and finish. All aspects of my experience with Hosking Hardwood exceeded my expectations."
- John, Buena Vista CO
"Hi Crystal, Just letting you know my order was received today in fine condition. It was a great experience doing business with you.
- John, Santa Rosa CA
"Diane, just wanted to touch base and tell you how happy I am with the Muskoka flooring I purchased through your company. I have some of it down and it is beautiful" stuff! Flooring came completely undamaged and in a very timely manner. Well worth the extra money and the quality of the boards so far is outstanding. Would love to give your company a great testimonial for your future customers as buying expensive flooring online can be a little unnerving. Your company saved me alot of money and conducted the transaction to a T!! Thanks again."
– Shawn, IN
"Hi Diane, just want to do a follow–up on receipt and installation of our Muskoka 3 1/4" x 3 1/2" Brule hardwood flooring. Received the 12 boxes from R+L Freight. The material was received in excellent shape—no shipping damage. Installation went great!. Took me a few days to install with pneumatic nailer and by drill/nail. Found "ZERO Defects" in the material—no nicks, warped pieces and plenty of 82" pieces. Opened 4 to 5 boxes so I could pick from numerous boxes instead of just one. Found that the wood was so consistent in grain/color, that I was able to sort/organize the lengths and installed based on lengths to minimize waste. Quality product!
Bottom Line: Consistency of the flooring was so good that I ended up with LESS THAN 2% WASTE! I have an unopened box (my 10%), so on my way to start another room, foyer or our living room. Please fell free to pass my favorable comments on. I look forward to hearing from you again and come at you with additional orders. Thanks for your help with this project!"
– Kent and Cheryl, Ohio
"Crystal, now that I have finished installing the hardwood, I just wanted to say "thank you" to Hosking. Everything about the ordering and delivery process went smoothly and was handled very professionally, and I am very pleased with the floor. I will happily recommend Hosking to friends and family thinking about installing hardwood."
– Steven, MA
"Hello again Jeff, thanks for your quick reply. I had figured it out shortly after emailing you but had disconnected my computer and wi–fi so I could work on the floor in the dining room. Let me say how wonderful the floor looks. I couldn't be happier with the color or the quality of the product. I have already recommended Hoskings to my brother–in–law as well as a neighbor. Tomorrow I'll spend my sixtieth birthday installing the flooring in my living room now that the dining room is completed. By the way, kudos on your web site. It is fabulous. Thanks again,"
– Mark, MI
"Good morning Diane, I just wanted you to know that the wood floor has been delivered between terrible thunderstorms but it got placed into my garage without a drop of rain. What a blessing...I was so worried. Thank you for all of your attentions to my concerns and for going above and beyond to make the situation right. I am so pleased and will recommend you to everyone. Have a wonderful day and thank you!!"
– Judith, NC
"Dear Diane, I just wanted to write back to tell you how delighted my wife and I are with the Somerset engineered natural oak hardwood we ordered. The delivery went smoothly and came in fine condition. Our contractor installed it about 5 weeks ago. He was impressed with the quality and it looks just great. Not a perfect match with our other existing oak regular hardwood, but was able to blend sufficiently so it makes an acceptable transition. We don't really notice. We're really happy with our choice and very much appreciate your guidance on the selection."
– Miles, CO
"Thank you so much for your excellent customer service. The flooring arrived by truck yesterday and was so neatly and securely packaged on a skid. Even the delivery guy complimented how well it was packaged. Your attention to detail Thank you so much for your excellent customer service. Your service was top–notch from the first time I contacted you to the final delivery of the floor –so thank you once again."
– Tammy, MD
"Crystal, I just wanted to let you know how much we LOVE our cork flooring from WE Cork, which we purchased from you. The Late Winter Drift looks just like vintage lumber. Thank you."
– Ruth, CA
"Hi Jeff, I'm one of your customers and have been helped by your sales person, Julie. I just wanted to commend her for being so helpful with my orders, answering all my questions and just for being one really nice person to work with. I'm recently retired so have been trying to fix up my home out here in the San Francisco Bay Area and not too well versed in ordering stuff I know nothing about online. I called for help and was fortunate to get Julie on the other line who explained your products so well, I was amazed at her breath of all those woods. And she helped me with calculating how much, which padding and even checked whether the padding could take radiant heating. We are working on a larger order for my brother's condo and she even checked specs for sound requirements and always got back to me next day as promised.
I'm sure you have had other folks comment on what a great job this person does for you but I just wanted to say my thoughts. You just don't find a person on the other end of some phone on the other side of the nation that is so helpful. She is a jewel and you are so lucky to have someone like this working for you. Enough said, but its safe to say you don't find a person with this knowledge and dedication these days. Nice company and I'll tell others about what a good job you have all done."
– Tim, CA
"I am located in St Augustine, Fl. My husband and I are near retirement, building our first home and are researching the engineered wood for our new home. The choices, pricing, are dizzying. I keep coming back to your site to get more info, have read most of your articles, and can't thank you enough for helping to clear up so many issues. You even carry the brand of flooring we are looking to buy (Johnson Tuscan series in the Hickory). Thank you for making this information so available. It has been a godsend, as this is an investment I don't want to squander."
– Deborah, FL
"I just wanted to say a really big THANK YOU!! First for finding the discontinued flooring and then for making it so easy and a reasonable price as well, and being so nice, too! Thank you. PS, I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for flooring! :)"
– Kim, NY
"Diane, just wanted to say thanks for everything. Order arrived early wood looks great. Thanks for the great service and products."
– Francis, FL
"Thank you Diane, The driver—very nice kid by the way—placed the floor safely inside the house. I am very pleased to have done business with your company. You guys have done a great job for me twice!! If I understood you correctly, you said that stair steps could be made by Hosking as a custom product. Please confirm whether this is the case, we would like to get stair replaced and match the new floor.
– Rafael, MA
"Your son–in–law delivered my flooring order today. He had also delivered
my previous order. I wanted to let you know what a great asset he is to your
company. He is very congenial and has a wonderful personality. My email and
phone communication with you and your employees has been great and this
face–to–face is the icing on the cake. Your son–in–law represents your company
– Jim, MA
"We're satisfied customers, having purchased about 1,000 SF of 3.25 x 3/4 White Oak Saddle hardwoods from you all about 5 years ago. (It still looks wonderful—thanks.)"
– Susan, TX
"Am laying Owens White Oak plank I bought from you,
recently—marvelous quality!! Can't
say that enough. Top choice!!!"
– Bruce, MA
"I received my flooring. Simply love it! Thank you. The only problem is they sent 1 T molding in the wrong color and shape. The color is supposed to be hickory saddle. Molding is wide and flat. Please inform on what to do. Thanks!"
– Nancy, IL
"Thank you for the wonderful floors. They were installed over the weekend and they look great!!!!"
– John, OH
"Hi Crystal, the flooring got here yesterday and does appear to be in fine shape. I measured the moisture and it seems to be in the expected range. Estes even used a lift truck and was able to put the pallet in the garage and save me the work of hauling it in from the curb like I did a few years ago when I did my downstairs. All the boxes are now upstairs and acclimating. Thanks again to Hosking for the fine service and great prices. The only way to get hardwood floors!"
– Mark, IN
"Hi I bought some nice Anderson flooring from you. My daughter and her husband are looking for a good deal on engineered flooring maybe 2000 square feet, any ideas?"
– Marcia, TX
"Hi Jeff, I just wanted to let you know I started to install the trout river flooring this past weekend on the cape. As I suspected this floor is garbage. I can't believe its rated 5 stars on your site. I opened 6 boxes and about 2 boxes have been totally unusable while the rest is poor to say the least. I'm not talking about the color or look, I'm tailing about the quality Most every board has such a bad crown it can't lay flat against the next board. Some boards have a banana shape. The quality control is horrible with damage to the tongues out of the box. Look at the picture below. How does this pass quality control when the tongue is ripped off? Shame on me for waiting so long but I knew this floor was crap when I inspected a few boxes and emailed you in January. You can bet I'll be posting some poor reviews."
– John, MA
"Have received my order and wanted to express my extreme gratitude for filling this order. I have searched for over 2 years for a perfect match to the existing flooring I had placed 14 years ago and you guys made it 99.9%.
Will have it down in the next few days but what I have down now matches almost perfectly. So again thank you."
– Nick, SC
"Just wanted to say thank you for the recent order of Anderson Flooring. The process was easy, the product looks great. Haven't put the flooring down yet, so I'll keep you posted over the next few weeks. Overall though, this was a great experience and your prices were fantastic!"
– Jim, IN
"Being a first time homeowner on a tight budget, the pricing here was just too good. I'm really excited to get the flooring in and installed. Thanks again for recommending Mont Royal—without you offering your thoughts on the sale and their maple line, I may very well have been stuck installing carpet instead...yuck."
– Steve, OH
"Diane, I received the flooring on Thursday and wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the product. This is going to be a beautiful floor. the variations in wood grain are striking. Thank you so much for your great service and quality products. I'll definitely come back to you for future purchases."
– Johnny, AL
"Thank you very much for replacement of the 2 crushed boxes from the original order, but all is well as the last 2 I received are in fine condition. Sorry to have caused you so much trouble for such a small order but your company preformed flawlessly, so no matter what you get my recommendation to anyone who wants it."
– Ralph, PA
"Diane, the flooring was delivered today during the time window they had planned. The driver was very nice and energetic. One box was torn but the wood looked fine. YRC was very pleasant to work with. Thank you for everything."
– Paula, WI
"All of the flooring boards are in great shape without any damage. We are considering ordering the same Homerwood for two more bedrooms in a few months. It was a true pleasure to work with everyone at Hosking Hardwood. Thank you."
– Jim, FL
"Hi Jeff, I just received the new shipment of floor and the color—tone is exactly what I wanted. The white labels were the trick! I wanted to thank you personally and Tom Brown for working so hard on my behalf. The customer service that Hosking Hardwood provided to me restores my faith in American business. I will not hesitate to do business with you in the future. Once again thanks for all your help."
– Paul, MI
"Hi, Our Muskoka hickory hardwood just arrived today and we got a peek at the wood. Wow! It is beautiful looking. Can't wait for it to be installed. Thank you for your great service and information on your site. It helped me feel comfortable buying a product sight unseen. I had never bought something of this value from the internet—it was a good experience all the way around. Again, thanks."
– Jackie, IN
"Hi Diane, I want to thank you for your assistance in exchanging the Bruce flooring recently. I also want to let you know about some issues with the Hickory Smokey Topaz flooring. We have installed it and it does look beautiful. However, there were many many pieces that were not usable except for scrap under the cabinets. Many pieces had holes in them, especially where the knots were. Some we had to use and I will have to buy some kind of filler and hope it looks okay. There were others with damage such as nicks, gauges, rough edges, lack of finish, and other issues. It looks like Bruce needs to improve their quality control department. Although I was able to salvage some pieces for edges, and some for a narrow hallway, I had at least 3 boxes of wood pieces that were unusable. I plan on sharing this information with the Armstrong company. I know that you have recommendations on your website and your customers should know to order quite an excess of this wood in order to account for the unusable pieces. I had planned on doing my bedroom with the same wood, but now am quite hesitant about ordering this again. Again, I thank you for your help with the flooring.
– Barbara, NJ
"We purchased Anderson Virginia Vintage flooring through your website. The product arrived last week and it is perfection. Thank you for communicating the purchasing process so well. Your support both online and by phone were so helpful. We are tremendously happy with this experience and will purchase additional flooring from you in the future."
– Gwen, PA
"Hi Jeff, we received the flooring. The driver was professional, polite, and helped us move the pallets into the garage as it had been raining. We opened one box and it looks beautiful. Can't wait to see it installed. Will let you know how that goes...Thanks."
– Lisa, CA
"Crystal: Thanks! Yes, I got the note from Diane and the carrier call today to setup delivery, tomorrow. Wow! You all work fast. P.S. Thought you might like to know that Lowe's has a 28 day delivery time on this flooring to my local store and they are more expensive. Kind regards and happy holidays."
– Chip, NC
"Hi – Previously I bought Muskoka walnut from you and was delighted with it. Many thanks!"
– Mat, MN
"Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with your company. We had no problems with the wood. We had ordered last time from another company and had a lot of messed up boards. Thanks."
– Valerie, TN
"Diane, just want to let you know about the flooring. It is presently 10 months later and I was not able to get it installed until this summer (oops!) because of the temperature of the concrete slab and requirements for the glue. However, now that it is laid down, it is beautiful. Further, much of the scrap pieces were left outside until I could haul them off over a month later. During that time, it rained a bunch and was terribly humid. To my delight (so cliche, I know, but very real), the strips did NOT warp or twist or swell. It is an amazing product. That was one of the hopes/expectations I had for choosing the Cikel flooring and it has far exceeded those expectations. I'm also delighted with then finish. Again, with the test pieces and some of the ones installed, ,they have demonstrated terrific resistance to water and other products. This is some pretty tough flooring and gives the home a beautiful 'crafty' style floor—much more traditional to old time wood flooring. Thanks again for the great prices and quality products."
– Pete, SC
"Just had to write and let you know how thankful my husband and I are with the beautiful hardwood flooring that we purchased. You're pricing was excellent and your people's customer service knowledge was superb. Before visiting you, we went to that liquidators store and all they had was cheap junky wood and the people working there had no product knowledge. We are so glad we bought it from your company."
– Angela, FL
"Just received my flooring from Hosking's yesterday. I am totally elated. Packaged very well. We love the flooring. Am waiting on a back order, but so far dealing with you has been very positive. I became aware of your business only from your website, and I was very impressed. Very informative. I still have several rooms in which I will install hardwood flooring and I will definitely use Hosking Flooring again. A great company to deal with. Keep up the great job. Thank you."
– Laurie, MN
"I received my back order on Wednesday, Again, I must compliment you and your company on the way you handled my
order. As I said before, ordering over the internet was a new
experience for me. Your website is very informative, and I honestly
believe that placing my order with your company was easier than going to
a local store. My wife and I love our new floor, which we purchased
based on your review. I have three more rooms to put flooring in, and I
will definitely use your company to purchase the flooring. This
couldn't have been easier or more pleasant an experience. Again, thank
you, and keep up the great work."
– Steve, MD
"Just wanted you to know that I got in touch with the carrier and will go out tomorrow (Friday, Feb. 18th) on its way here and should arrive ETA 4 to 5 work days. They will phone me once they are ready to deliver the order. Thanks so much for all you have done concerning this order."
– Susan and Don, AZ
"Hi Diane: I just wanted you to know that the shipment arrived last Thursday, May 20, and the trucking company was very helpful in scheduling the delivery. It all arrived in perfect condition, and the wood matches the adjacent room (installed 5 years ago) perfectly. It will be installed this weekend. Thank you again for your assistance. I held my breath as I ordered something this expensive online. It worked great!"
– Alanna, OH
"We purchased hardwood flooring for our last house 2 years ago from a local retailer and we paid 3 times the amount for the same flooring that we just purchased through you guys. Thank you for an honest price and all your help! I am telling everyone I know about Hosking hardwood flooring!"
– Jane, NJ
"Jeff, First of all, I wanted to tell you that the reason I chose to purchase from your company is because of the quality information you have made available on your website. As a computer professional, I try to educate my customers that their websites should be a 24/7 salesperson that answers 99% of the questions they get over the phones. Your site did that. It made my life easier, and I thank you."
– Jamie, IL
"Hi Jeff! My husband is 3/4 of the way through the installation of our wood floor, and we are as happy as we could possibly be! We purchased your Mullican 4" St. Andrews Gunstock Oak. We were conservative and ordered 10+% overage. The product was delivered in just a couple of days, and we couldn't help but open a few boxes to check out the color/grain/finish. We both truly loved the look of the flooring, and could immediately see that the product was exactly as described on your website.
It looks like we will very comfortably have enough materials to finish our project. We look forward to sending you a picture when we are done with the installation!! The next time we (or any friends/family) need flooring, Hosking Hardwood will be the first stop!!
Thank you for answering our questions before we purchased the wood flooring!"
– Bridget, MA
"Hosking's people, While I remember, I want to complement you on your service. I have had some difficulties with online purchases in the past but dealing with you has been a pleasure. I will have no hesitancy to buy from you in the future. If everything proceeds successfully with this installation that should be next year when I plan to refloor another room. Yours will be the name I will reference when flooring comes up. Kudos to you."
– Rich , IL
"I've been meaning to write and will write something more meaningful for you, but we ordered some 650 sq. ft of Muskoka 4" Brazilian Cherry with some nervousness as we couldn't find a distributor in the area. I just wanted to say how wonferful the wood is and how special it came out.
The installer tried to sell us his 'brand' and we are very glad we stuck with your recommendation. He did say it is one of the best installs he's done. There was no waste in the boxes, and now with about 30 sq feet left over, my wife is looking to order more and do some more flooring. You're killing me!!!! (in a good way) Thanks again."
– Dave and Susan, CT
"I purchase the Mannington Heritage floor and was wondering what the resistance is to UV fading? I am going to be putting an area rug on the floor and was worried that the floor would fade around it (like my carpet did). Thanks for your help. I now have 2000 sf of floor purchased from Hosking Hardwood and recommend you to everyone. Thanks again."
– William, MO
"I love my new WeCork floors. I saved over $1,000 ordering from you and the delivery was fast. Everyone I spoke to was friendly and helpful and my emails were answered quickly. Thanks for making this purchase a great experience. (Feel free to use in testimonials!)"
– Susan, MA
" I just received my flooring and it is truly wonderful, My mother purchased her flooring through you guys and she saved a ton of money and she loves it. I wanted to write and tell you that your company is by far the best source for both honest information, quality of product and low prices. I compare the service I received from you to the service I get at Zappos.com, just fantastic!! I am a customer for life. I am spreading the word. Thank you!"
– Susan, MD
"I purchased the White Mountain Brazilian Cherry Flooring in May and finally got it installed the end of August. My installer was very impressed with the flooring and said as soon as he saw the flooring, this is high dollar and good flooring. I had installed it in my kitchen, it is beautiful and everyone comments how beautiful the floor is. Will definitely buy from your company again. Best flooring site for quality, price, and customer satisfaction."
– Pat, VA
"I placed an order with you on Tuesday 10/13. 1200 sq ft of Bruce Liberty Plains flooring was delivered to my house on Friday 10/16. So far, I have been VERY IMPRESSED with the flooring (most is still sitting in the boxes adjusting to my homes climate.) Shipping was very fast and the order placement was very easy. I talked to Crystal a few times before placing the order to as questions and she was very able to answer all my questions. Your prices are reasonable and I would definitely suggest you to others. I hope the finish product is as good as with what I am seeing now. Thanks!"
– Dave, NJ
"I wanted to write and voice my appreciation as I am a high end remodeler who works with very high end clients. I tried purchasing flooring from other online dealers over the years and I always had a problem with either getting the correct information or getting a quality product. This is my 6th order from Hosking Hardwood and you have saved me thousands of dollars and provided us with a very timely deliveries and excellent flooring. Keep up the good work! Thank you."
"We were real happy with the Bruce Dundee Strip flooring, not a lot of bad boards and the contractor said it was one of the best he's seen. Thanks again."

– Phil F. IL
"I ordered flooring for my home from you several years ago and I love it. I admire my beautiful floors every day. Now I am looking for flooring for my retirement home closer to my son. When money is available the first improvement I hope to make is to install your flooring. I will be in touch when I get ready for flooring in my new home."
– Joyce, FL
"Hi Diane, I am back in touch with you again. My Sister Anita is going to call you to purchase some bamboo floor for her house. Please give her the same attention you have given to me. I know I can count on you. My wood floor is so beautiful that it is a very good fact about your company. Thank you so much."
– Isabelle, CA
"Dear Mr. Hosking, I just had to write and let you know how much you and your company have meant to us. After shopping locally my husband and I decided that we could not afford the flooring we wanted and were going to put our wood flooring project off. But then a neighbor who had purchased their flooring from you told us we have to contact you. It was one of the most rewarding experiences we have ever had. Your customer service people and pricing was simply outstanding and you made it affordable even in the tight economy we are in. I am so glad that we bumped into our neighbor who referred us to you. The Muskoka Floors are beautiful Thank You so much."
– Ed and Eleanor, MI
"Hi Jeff, thank you for your response. I was pleasantly surprised to see That the president of the company responded to my e-mail. For your information, I reviewed websites about ordering online and your company Had the best reviews of anybody. In fact, I could save another 85 dollars Going with somebody else online but based upon the reviews and your e-mail, I am definitely buying from you. I'm just trying to do everything right the first time so price isn't an issue, I just want to know what you think because I value your opinion. Just to let you know I ordered the Quick Step Laminate – The Elegance collection with the 4" boards."
– AL, PA
"I don't have a question. I purchased some 3/4 inch Oak Gunstock White Mountain Flooring from you two years ago. Due to circumstances, we just started laying the flooring. We are so impressed! In a total of 10 boxes we only found 3 boards with any faults. After installing a hardwood floor in my mothers home using an expensive top of the line Bellawood flooring we found over a full carton of bad boards. I need to compliment you for your rating system, the excellent quality, and the great price. I will highly recommend you to anyone in the future. My floors are beautiful."
– Verna, KS
"We recently ordered over 1600 SF of Mannington Wood Floors from your company. We have received the flooring without any problems and are very pleased. Everyone on your staff that we talked to was helpful and friendly, and the flooring is just beautiful. The freight company that delivered it was friendly and helpful and managed to get it here unharmed. (We live in Louisiana—that's a long way from Boston!) We are so pleased with our experience that we've told everyone else about it, and now my brother in North Carolina in getting ready to place an order. Thanks for a great experience."
– Bob and Jodie, Louisiana

– Doug, NY
"Please forward this note of our appreciation to Jeff Hosking and his whole staff for our gratitude for their help with our wood flooring order. I do not know what we would have done as we live in a rural area in Nebraska where there are no flooring stores near us for a 100 miles. We never even had to leave our home. Fred and I want to to also mention how wonderful your website is and the great pricing we got on our beautiful wide plank floors. Thank you all so much you made us both extremely happy! if you need to use us for any referrals do not hesitate to have them call us."
– Fred and Joslin, NE
"Hi Jeff...Dave here. Just got back from Florida and wanted to let you know that all 1700 SF of the Kahrs has been installed and is beautiful. Product arrived on time and took over 1 1/2 hours to unload...nice workout... The builder of my house came over after install and just could not believe the product, he and I both took pictures. Anyway Jeff...my thanks and hopefully there will be more to come your way"

– Susan, WI
"My wife and I have been looking for Bruce Hardwood Flooring and did our homework. Your prices were excellent and we thank you for the quality service we received and the great price which beat our local dealer by $1,600.00. That’s a lot of money you saved us! We just love the new floors and are recommending Hosking Hardwood Flooring to all our friends."
– Brent, IL
"Thanks for the great service! Flooring looks great."
– Eric, MO
"Frankly I am disappointed in Hosking Hardwood Flooring for not allowing me to be able to return several moldings that my wife and I did not like that came with the flooring. Your reason of them being cut by the contractor who was going to install them still does not regard the fact that these moldings did not match the flooring that I received. We are not happy campers."
– Bill, NJ
"I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our Lauzon flooring we just finished installing. This was BY FAR the easiest wood flooring we have ever installed. This wood was so perfect, we had a full 100 s.f. of wood left over from the job (3,800 s.f.) which will will use upstairs. The number of unusable pieces was less than ten over the 38 boxes we opened! The Hoskings service was exceptional in helping to sort out the various molding needs. Thanks for everything!"
– Lisa, VA
"Mickey, the Mannington floor has been installed (except for the t–mold) and it looks great. The installers said it was a great product to install. I plan to send photos. Thanks to Hoskings and Mannington for an outstanding product!"
– Tim, MS
"Dear Hosking Hardwood Crew, Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you again for your great service on my recent flooring purchase. We finally got the flooring down and we think it looks great. I have attached a picture of part of the floor. Everything went very smoothly thanks in large part to your help with our technical questions. In all we installed just under 1100 square feet. The Anderson Rhino Tuff maple planks were beautiful and were perfectly milled. We had almost zero waste."
– Brad, CA
"Hi...The next morning after my e–mail, I actually heard from the carrier. The flooring arrived that same day! WOW! Such fast shipping. Everything looks great. We will use Hosking again in the future when we re–do our lower level!, Thanks again."
– Elizabeth, MI
"I am installing the flooring I purchased from Hosking and its GREAT! However, I don't exactly know how to install it under the existing kitchen counter toe kicks. Any advice on this?"

"I just wanted to let you know the wood was delivered two days ago. I want to thank you for holding my order for awhile. Our house project is a little behind schedule, but we expect to install the wood floors within the next two weeks. So I am very excited to see how it turns out. Thank you for working with us on this order. I have recommended and will continue to recommend Hosking Hardwood to my friends. Thanks."
– Brad, FL

"Keep up the good work—great company—must be due to great people!!"
– Neil, IL
"Thank you so much for your help—I placed my order this afternoon. I don't know where we would be with our home remodel without your company. Local flooring stores treated us as if we were simply a bother. My first, and last, words to them were that I wanted a good product and I wanted a deal! We will be back."
– Alan, MI
"Thanks so much! I love my floor!"
– Raymond, MD
"We wanted to take a moment & thank you for your outstanding service, pricing & delivery. As we mentioned when placing the order, we had a very bad experience with another internet flooring company. After being promised 5–7 day delivery, we finally gave up after many unanswered phone calls & waiting almost 8 weeks.
We are extremely pleased with our flooring. Your customer service representative was excellent, your pricing was competitive & we received our order exactly when you said it would arrive. Please feel free to use this letter as a reference for future customers who may be hesitant after having a similar bad experience with other internet vendors."
– Bob, FL
"Just FYI, it's been a pleasure dealing with Hosking. At our previous home in Massachusetts, we replaced carpet with hardwood upstairs and in the great room. The flooring (Muskoka oak and maple) was from Hosking and we were extremely pleased with both the quality and price. We moved to Virgina two years ago and have just taken on a similar project. After shopping around locally, we found that Hosking beat all the local shops for price by an average of $1.25/square foot for a similar quality flooring—that included shipping. That saved us roughly $1,500. and once again the quality was great. Thanks Again."
– Dean, VA
"Good Morning, I just wanted to relate to you that we were very impressed with the quality of your 'distinctive' wood flooring. We recently completed the installation and our contractor said it was some of the nicest flooring material he had ever worked with. The cartons were packaged nicely and there were hardly any defective or "waste" pieces that had to be discarded. The sections fit together as they should have so that the installation was easily accomplished. We feel that this flooring represents an excellent value for the price we paid and we would not hesitate to recommend it or use it again. Thank you."
– Gary, MD
"Wow! What great service and handling to get our flooring here so quickly. Looks great and thank you again for the great service all of you have rendered with our order. If anyone needs any flooring I will highly recommend you guys!!"

– Bill, IL
"Jeff – The flooring showed up here Tuesday, Sept 2 at the same time our foam insulation was being sprayed. Talk about busy! But we got it all unloaded and its stacked up in our dining room. Thats some amazing turnaround on getting it down here, since I think we ordered Aug 28. that really worked out well for us. Haven't got a chance to dig into the floor yet, but we laid out a box up in the hallway and Nancy loves it. I think the 3.25" was the right choice. Thanks again for your great service!"
– Ben and Nancy, IL
"Crystal, you are a delight! Thank you so much for this tip—I had NO idea Alloc was offering a rebate. I had done my research on this floor last fall, and didn't even look at their website again when I made the order from you, because I already new exactly what I wanted and didn't need to do further research. We are thrilled with the floor. Everyone who's seen it thinks it's some fancy, expensive slate or tile, and marvels at the incredibly straight and even grout lines. It truly looks like a much more expensive floor than it is. And I am anticipating that it will still look this fantastic for many, many years.Thanks much."
– Mary, GA

"My neighbor installs wood floors and told me they use a felt algicide pad with a moisture barrier on the top of it in conjunction with the wood floors. It sounds like an easier way than glue, any advice, can I purchase it with my order, I did not see it anywhere? I'd ask my neighbor but he is now ticked off that I'm not giving his place the business. thank god for places like you guys. Saving a ton of money. Thank you."

I will certainly refer all my DIY friends to you."
