#1 written by Thomas B. in Wantagh, NY

They responded right away to my call, came in, gave me a very reasonable price. They did an excellent job. I had other estimates from companies that said i had to put in a whole new floor that the wood was not good – of course that new floor would have cost triple the price i paid. I am definitely hiring Avista again after the holidays for other rooms in my home and highly recommend them!
Thank you Avista!!!

We have used Avista many times because they are reliable, reasonable and we have always been very, very happy with the results. We have referred them to family members and they have been pleased too.

Our neighbors recommended Avista to us. We wanted to install new floors, and had no idea what direction to go in. Joe actually came to us, helped us decide on which direction to go AND saved us money in the end. Our floors look wonderful. We highly recommend their services.

Avista fixed what another flooring company did wrong. . I initially hired a painter/flooring contractor, and he wrecked my floors. I called Avista, and they fixed what the other guy did. The whole crew, including office, were helpful, understanding and above all, PROFESSIONAL.

I personally think other flooring companies should learn from Avista flooring. I am the owner of multiple businesses, and from my experience with Avista, I can promise you, they know what they are doing. I will be referring them to friends and businesses alike.

Thank you very much for the beautiful job done on my living room, dining room, bedrooms, kitchen and hallways. I know it was a lot of work, but you and your crew worked diligently and the hardwood payed off! And thank you for the stain referral. I love how the Red Mahogany looks with my furniture! And the crown molding you installed really completed my rooms. My husband and I couldn’t be happier! I will be calling again soon to book a date for the Den. Thank you again!


#6 written by Jason M in Stamford, Ct

Just wanted to write to you and thank you for coming all the way to Connecticut to finish the job that my contractor couldn’t. You really saved the day. After he walked off the job, I had no idea if my floors would ever get done. But thanks to you, they look wonderful, and my whole house looks great. Not to mention, my contractor said this job would take him 3 weeks to do, because of all the custom work, but Avista had the job done in a week and half, including all the custom borders and medallions. You can tell the difference between the contractor and Avista’s work. The owner was on the job site everyday, which was reassuring. Avista’s is far better in quality, and I plan on having them come back to redo what the contractor had completed before he left.

I called Avista (I like using local contractors) for an estimate on replacing a stairway landing in our living room. Small job, fair price and excellent workmanship. Work was neat and clean.They called the day before to confirm time window. Next day Avista was prompty on time and courteous. I would recommend Avista for any hardwood floor work.


#8 written by Alisa E., in Farmingdale, NY

I called Avista for an estimate to refinish our floors. From the first call they were professional and courteous. My Huband had his own questions he wanted answered. We called and they took their time to answer everything. We made our appointment. They showed up right ontime. They did such a great job on our floors. Our house was built in 1957 and the floors have not been done since the house was built. They look like new and have such a nice shine to them. If i know anyone who is looking to have their floors done i would definitely recommend them.

Fantastic job, great service, very pleasant people. Would highly recommend them. And to think we did eenie meenie miney mo going thru the local ads - we hit the jackpot. Thanks Joe and boys.


#11 written by Debbie C, in Lynbrook, NY

My neighbor recommended them to me. They were honest, courteous, and professional. They went above and beyond dealing with our other contractor when an issue arose on another matter. And most important they did a great job. I would recommend them to anyone.


#12 written by Margaret, in Valley Stream, NY

Awesome job....Honest, reliable & professional. I highly recommend Joe and his crew...


#13 written by Karla H, in Long Beach, NY

Joe agreed to remove decades-old, stuck, deteriorated linoleum from a 100 year old pine floor. Another floor contractor refused to even try, he said the floor could not be salvaged, so we had wall-to-wall carpeting there for 11 years. This was a difficult job and good results were not guaranteed, as Joe explained at the outset, but Joe and his crew took on the challenge and did a fabulous job! I now have the glowing red pine vintage floor I have always wanted, graced with colonial style braided throw rugs. Thanks again! --Karla


#14 written by Kathie S, in Hicksville, NY

Even a month after our old hallway and stairs were refinished by Avista, I can't get over the job that you did!! Your crew was sooo polite and answered all our questions........ and my worst fear of having to clean up for weeks after this project did not materialize......hope we can now get some of the bedrooms done because there is no comparison between your work and what was previously done by the former owners. Thank you all again.


#15 written by Christian S, in Lynbrook,  NY

great work, honest and fair quotes, no reason to shop around. Answers all your questions, very friendly, and would definitley recommend to friends


#16 written by Steven, in St. Albans,  NY

Avista did a fantastic job in replacing my old, beat-up treads on the stairs in the house I bought in St. Albans, Queens. They were quick, efficient and the stairs look amazing in comparison to what I had before. I would highly recommend them for any future hardwood flooring needs.


#17 written by Jeremy, in Lynbrook,  NY

When I was thinking about having Hardwood Flooring installed in my Dining Room, I was a little hesitant because I didnt know what to expect. I was imagining a long process with a hefty price attachted to it. But after speaking with Joe, I was extremely pleased with what he was proposing. I had Avista install my new oak dining room floor with a wood border . The work came out incredible and they completed a day earlier than they originally were aiming for. I am 110% satisfied with my choice to go with Avista Hardwood Flooring and recommend to anyone looking to have a quality floor installed.


#18 written by Samuel , in Valley Stream,  NY

I recently hired Avista Hardwood Flooring to install new floors in my dining room and living room. All I can say is THANK YOU! My floors are perfect and I always get compliments! Joe Cimino was easy to talk to and worked with us to find the best option (including saving us money!). The staff is very nice, and I really loved how professional they were. I recommend them to everyone!

Although a rather small job, Avista treated mine with importance! They were not frightened by the vast amount of glue covering the floor, and left me with a beautiful floor!!

Joe assured us that he could handle the job, and that they would look like brand new. He did not disappoint! They look brand new, and everyone who sees the floors cannot believe how amazing they look. Joe offered expert advice on how to maintain the floor. Team is very dedicated and knowledgeable.
