Emperial Hardwood Floors is a family business owned by the husband-and-wife team of Ricky and Lori Core and is a Home Reports Best Pick for the eighth consecutive year.
Emperial specializes in refinishing hardwood floors, installing solid strip flooring, and also re-coating hardwood floors. The company began serving Atlanta-area homeowners in 1979. Emperial is a small, customer-oriented business that can give its customers personal attention. As Ricky explains,
We use the Bona Kemi dustless system, which cuts down on the dust by 90%. We also feather dust cabinets, countertops, and walls after job completion. In addition, we specialize in today's high-traffic finishes. These finishes are twice as strong as conventional polyurethanes, and they cure faster as well.
The company carries both workers' compensation and liability insurance. Emperial also requires a 600-square-foot minimum and guarantees its work. According to Ricky,
We care about our customers and have a great deal of pride in the work that we do. Our goal is to make every customer happy, so that they refer us to their friends. That's how we built the business.
