See What Our Customers Are Saying

My initial meeting with owner Charles Bass went very well. He brought a number of samples and explained their differences. His knowledge and guidance helped me decide on the color and texture that I liked. His employees arrived early and did an excellent job installing the carpeting in four rooms and stairs. Mr. Bass was there during the installation and was available to address any questions or concerns that occurred. I highly recommend Floor Coverings International.

I love shopping from my home. No showrooms to have to visit. Our salesman, Charles Bass, was so easy to work with. He listened to us, and then made recommendations. Our new wood floors are beautiful, and we are happy that we went with FCI. In fact, we are so happy that we will have Charles and FCI back to do the floors in our soon to be finished basement.
Margie Pinelli
Great communication and service. Charles and his team were a pleasure to work with and did a great job. Couldn't be happier!
Frank Neitzel
The friendly service and the wide variety of choices I had. Also the people who installed were good and knew what they were doing. I had sound proof padding installed and they knew what they were doing and installed it correctly and efficiently.

Edward Warzel
The products that you offer are terrific, with a wide range to accommodate any budget. What is really outstanding is the service provided by Charles Bass and his hard working employees. Charles is extremely knowledgeable about flooring and taught us a lot. This helped us to choose the right product for our needs. He is a very personable guy who consistently seemed truly interested in our flooring project. We never felt pressured to buy anything. He was on site throughout the two day installation. We had a few minor issues which he resolved immediately. We installed luxury vinyl plank flooring downstairs and wall-to-wall carpeting upstairs. His contractors were the hardest working people I have ever seen. They hardly stopped to catch a breath over two days,and were clearly proud of the job that they did. They finished by cleaning everything up and taking photographs. Charles has checked in with this several times since the job was complete, to make sure that we are 100% satisfied. We had kitchen flooring installed earlier this year by one of the big-name companies, the price was no less and the quality of service and work was definitely inferior. We were glad that we did not use Charles and his team for that project as well. Please look no further and hire this company for all your flooring needs!

The work was done with Charles supervising all along the way. The floors look great.
Diane Wacks
We love our wood floors with a cherry finish on red oak.It is absolutely gorgeous and quite elegant. The guys who put the wood flooring in did an amazing job. It is solid and wonderful to walk on. Charles walked us though the process of making our choices in his caring and friendly way. He was there to take care of a problem with an uneven spot. He was there the full time on the day of installation. It was a good day, thanks to Charles, a professional personable person.

The carpet installation was very fast. The furniture was removed from all the bedrooms and put back in place after the job was done. Our salesman made sure everything was completed properly. Carpet looks great!
