Javier did an amazing job ripping out and installing brand new gorgeous hardwood floors in my Novi home. He is by far the best contractor I have ever hired, hands down. Professional, diligent, customer oriented, timely, honest, and his work speaks for itself. Don't get another quote, hire him immediately. Thank you, Javier!

Natalie Qandah

We used Javier and his team to install 2,200 sq ft of new hardwood floors throughout our home and we couldn't have made a better decision. From the very beginning Javier explained the process and kept us posted with updates throughout the project. His team's professionalism, attention to detail and thoroughness were extremely impressive and much appreciated. Most importantly our floors are absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I would recommend Exotic Flooring & Design to anyone.

Charlie Stein

Javier and his crew did an amazing job installing my floors and refinishing my stairs and banister. We ran into subfloor and joist problems and he took care of it all. I highly recommend Exotic Flooring for your flooring needs.

Tammy Mathy Griffiths

I just bought a new home, and immediately wanted to have the hardwood floors refinished. I had 3 other contractors come and look at the job at hand, and they all could not get to it for 2 weeks. Moving in was starting to look like a month out!? Javier to the rescue! See More

The elegance of Brazilian Cherry is like no other species of flooring when it comes to beauty and durability. The detail sanding and preparation created a flawless flat surface that some may categorize it as walking on glass.
Staining it Ebony and topping it off with several coats of Glitsa flowed beautifully with the Oak stair ends that were stained True Black.
