Review by Ana Gomez in Santa Ana.
Project: Hardwood Floor Recoating.

   What can I say, Where do I start? Earl is the best. We had hired another flooring company to recoat our hardwood floors. After three attempts to get our recoat done right, we gave up and looked for another company to fix our hardwood floor finish. Here comes Earl, cape and all (just kidding), to the rescue! Due to the number of coats & errors the other company made, we were looking at a possible refinish (sanding down to the bare wood). Earl gave us hope and did he deliver. Earl was able to buff out the mistakes without having to sand our hardwood floors. By the end of the 3rd day, my beautiful hardwood floors were back!!! If only all contractors had the impeccable work standards / quality Earl has, homeowners would be in heaven.

Review by Kelly Palmer in Rancho Santa Margarita.

Where do I start. Hands down the best experience with a contractor one could have. We just bought new house that had two different wood floors on the main floor. The floors were obviously installed and different times and the previous owner had tried to match them as closely as possible. However, the color did not exactly match and the grain pattern was slightly different. Also, there was a raised transition piece between the kitchen and living area. Our hope was that Earl would be able to darken the floor from a lighter maple color to a darker oak color. We were also hoping that Earl could do something to make them look more uniform and remove the transition piece. At our first meeting, Earl throughly examined our floors to make sure what we wanted was possible. He then explained everything he would need to do to achieve the look we were after. We received a clear written bid by email a few days later and quickly decided to go with Earl. Earl started the job when he said he would and kept on schedule despite encountering an unexpected issue that cost a day. Earl kept us informed throughout the process. The end result is amazing and exceeded our expectations. The floor looks brand new and the color is exactly what we were hoping for. The transition piece was removed and a seamless transition was added. Unless it is pointed out to you, you cannot tell that the floor is actually two different floors that were installed at different times. The communication, execution, quality and care Earl provided for us was exceptional. His passion for what he does clearly shows in the time he takes in making sure everything is done the best that it can be.

Review by Daniel Graham in Riverside.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing.
   If there were 6 stars Earl would get 6. He is really top of the line. His quality of workmanship, knowledge of the trade, respect for your home, communications, and outright friendliness make working with him a pleasure. When he was finished we not only had fabulous floors but felt like we had made a friend along the way. I have worked with many tradesmen and contractors where the feeling was the opposite. What a relief. We were able to live in our home during the process, and the expected dust and mess never happened. If you are considering having your wood floors refinished American Standard Flooring is the place to call.

Review by James Phillips in Laguna Niguel.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing.
   Earl was a great pleasure to work with. Very professional and knows exactly what he is doing. Our 20+ yr wood floors needed to be refinished and Earl made them look much better than when they were first installed.

Review by John Pointer in Laguna Niguel.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing and Installation.
   We had a fantastic experience with American Standard Flooring. We wanted to install solid oak flooring in two bedrooms to match the existing flooring but could find no one who would do it. After months of searching we discovered American Standard Flooring. Earl was the best. He found the flooring to match our existing floors and competitively priced the material and installation. We are extremely satisfied with the installation. Earl answered questions we had during the installation and consulted us when different approaches to the installation arose. He even took the time to fix a problem with the existing flooring. He was neat, cleaned up at the completion of each day and arrived each day in a timely manner. We couldn't be more satisfied with the end result and our dealings with American Standard Flooring. If you want a first class installation at a fair price we highly recommend American Standard Flooring!

   Earl was by far one of the best wood flooring professionals I have ever interacted with. He knew a great deal about wood care, repair, and finishing. His work is of the highest quality, and I would strongly recommend.
 
Review by Steve Fazio in Laguna Beach.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing.
   First off, if your company name is American Standard Flooring, you need to be GREAT. Earl was just that. Great. He met with me, gave me honest options, he was neat, started and finished when he said he would, arrived on time, and was very trustworthy. He is very meticulous and takes great pride in all he does. His materials are top notch. I felt very comfortable leaving him alone in my home working while I was gone. Our floors were oak, but were very badly water damaged and worn. Earl gave us samples of the stain colors and gave us great suggestions. He filled all the ruts and holes, got rid of the grayed water damage and made the floors even and smooth. Unlike other local companies, Earl does the work himself without sending a crew we met outside Home Depot. I will refer him to anyone who asks. The floor looks better than I expected, and we had some very bad water damage. Do yourself a favor and give Earl a call, he is WORTH THE WAIT!!!! Steve Fazio Laguna Beach.
 
Review by Vanessa G. in Laguna Niguel.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing and Installation.
   We think so highly of Earl~ We have used him twice because we were so happy with his work. Originally, we had him sand down our floors when we purchased our home. He stained them and did a fantastic job. He really cares about details and making his customers happy. Later, we had a slab leak and had to remove the floors Earl had so beautifully done, we immediately called him back out to install new floors. He is extremely knowledgeable and knows his trade well. He is very honest, hard working, and a down right good guy! Highly recommend him to anyone! He is the professional WOOD MAN! Thank you Earl!
 
Review by Kyle Mann in Santa Ana.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing and Repair.
   You would being doing yourself an injustice by not at least calling American Standard Flooring for any flooring projects you have. On a visit to my neighbor's house, I saw how amazing their floors were and asked them who did them. They told me and highly recommended American Standard Flooring. I gave them a call and Earl came to my house. He is the most honest, hardworking, and intelligent flooring specialist you will ever meet. I compared his quote to three other contractors, and it came in as the most competitive, plus I trusted him the most, so I went with him. It was the best decision. My house was built in 1928, and the hardwood floors are mostly original and were in really bad shape. I had two different types of flooring with two different colors of stain and a lot of different damaged areas where the flooring needed to be replaced. Earl repaired all the damaged flooring and matched both types of wood with a consistent stain color. The results far exceeded my expectations. The new floors make my home look so much more valuable and increases the appraisal amount at far more than I paid for the floors. Again, you need to at least call American Standard Flooring to get a quote and meet Earl. He takes pride in his work and it shows in the results.
 
Review by Ed in Costa Mesa.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing and Repair.
  Just had my floors done for my 1955 home in Costa Mesa. Earl did an awesome job restoring the white oak hardwoods. I had areas that looked grey and stripped of finish, as well as lots of nail holes from the carpeting that I removed when I moved in. Earl sanded, filled in the holes, and applied 3 coats of finish. He even took care of unfinished transitions from my hardwoods to my new kitchen floor. The floors look great, and I can't stop staring at my floors! Earl is meticulous and pays attention to detail. It's comforting having a contractor like Earl who takes pride and cares a lot about his work. I highly recommend him. Good job Earl!
 
Review by Carmen Cave in Aliso Viejo.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing.
   This was the best experience I have ever had with any work done on my home. Earl was neat, finished when he said he would, arrived on time, and was very earnest and trustworthy. We loved being able to get to know him and will refer him to anyone who asks. The floor looks fantastic, and we had some very heavy wear. It looks better now than when we bought the house! Carmen Cave.
 
Review by Steve in San Clemente.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing.
   Earl is the best contractor of ANY kind we've ever had. He is meticulous and polite and reliable - shows up when he says he will, works by himself without subcontractors, and ultimately makes sure you get the color and gloss you want. One of our biggest concerns - the dust and the mess - were non-existent. Back in the old days when I've had floors refinished it was a dust storm. Earl used equipment that made sure we had no dust. We were amazed. We would recommend him to anyone without reservation!

   You Are The Best!! You took our old floors with its water stains, dog scratches, years of wear and tear and made them look better than new! The color is wonderful, Thank You, we would highly recommend you. L & J, Dana Point

   Earl Hodson of American Standard Flooring removed our carpet, installed new baseboards, and refinished our parquet floor so that it glows like a hotel ballroom dance floor. He worked every day including Saturday and Sunday till the job was done. He is extremely meticulous and knowledgeable about all types of woods and the refinishing process. We are thrilled with the results! He definitely deserves a 5-star rating and I highly recommend him to anyone who cares about their wood floors!
Review by John F. in Huntington Beach.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing.
   Earl is the absolute best, I’m so glad we found him for this project. 1962 era Huntington Beach house with original wood floors that looked like crap. Earl spent a full week carefully restoring them to a wonderful natural finish. He is a true craftsman, and really knows a lot about wood, and what’s needed depending on the situation. He’s rightly proud of the work he does, and that shows in the attention he pays to every detail. Earl did a fantastic job, and he’s a nice guy too!
Review by Geri G. in Huntington Beach.
Project: Hardwood Floor Refinishing and Repair.
   My floors were in pretty bad shape, mostly from water damage. It is a tiled parquet and I did have some new leftover tiles to use for the repair. It was also a natural finish to start with so it did not hold up well to a lot of traffic. Earl repaired the bad spots using ceramic tile for under the fridge (per my request). He then came in with his "dustless" equipment and proceeded to do a beautiful job on my floors. He was very nice and considerate as well. I never had a problem getting a hold of him. The job wasn't tiny. It took about 2weeks to complete. I would recommend Earl to anyone. Thanks Earl.
