    We are looking to replace 3 carpeted rooms with hardwood floors. Does anyone have a recommendation for this type of work? We were quoted $6200 (includes moving furniture, removal of carpet, sweeping, moldings...everything) by Empire Today. That may be totally reasonable, but not sure! Thanks for any advice or recommendations!

    Try K&K Floors. They did floors and steps for us, very good. They are out of Chantilly.

    We just had our floors done by someone I found through Servicemagic.com. We got a quote from Empire Today (starting with 26k, then all of a sudden it was 12k), KK flooring (10k+), and Design Flooring (8k). We went with Design Flooring not just because of the best price, but also because the price was for an excellent brand of hardwood in Brazilian Cherry, with an installation rate of 1.50.sqft. That is extremely cheap. The references checked out, and we had them here yesterday. They did everything in one day, about 1k sqft, everything looks great, and they cleaned up after they got done.

    I can highly recommend them and will be happy to provide the phone number if anyone is interested. Just PM me.

    We also used K&K last year to replace all flooring with wood. They did a great job and the entire project, including stairs and new carpeting in all bedrooms, was done in 1 day!

    Hi, we recently installed HW floors in our house. We purchased the wood from LL and received numerous install quotes. We found there were 2 ranges of prices $3.00+/sq ft and $1.5/sq ft. Big Difference. We didn't think the quotes in the upper range provided any additional value. We selected Design Flooring at the later price range and could not be more happy. Jung and his crew did a great job! Hiqh quality at a very reasonable price.

    Here's is info Jung Lee, Design Flooring. 703-489-2722

    I just had hardwood floors installed last Wednesday by Jung Lee at Design Flooring and am thrilled with the outcome. His quote was the best price and they were quick and very efficient and cleaned up nicely.
