Business Overview

How We Got Started

I chose to work in this industry because in 2004 when I was working my way through college I had a full time job, which resulted in taking 1 or 2 classes per semester, and I knew something had to change. I had spent 5 years thus far earning my degree when I decided to leave my full time job and focus on my education. I knew I would need to make money, and I discovered my latent talent for refinishing and installing hardwood floors. I decided to take on the occasional flooring job, giving me a chance to complete my degree and still stay afloat. Before long, the jobs became more than occasional. Every job seemed to create more opportunities. When people saw their new floors, they talked. That talk led to more consultations, and more satisfied customers. I realized I needed help, and with nothing short of pure luck and good fortune, I attracted some amazingly gifted people. These talented and knowledgeable men and women gained a strong reputation with our customers, who continued to spread .

We started in this industry in 2004.

Review by in Northville, MI
No refinishing job will ever be perfect. There will always be one or two items that frankly could be related to the quality of the wood, just as much as it could be related to human error, which is why I ranked it 4.5. That said, Brain did amazing. As a person, he is 5 stars. He took, in my opinion, a difficult refinishing project and did better than we expected. We are very happy with our results and we would not think twice about hiring the company again and specifically asking for Brian. Also, the company's relationship with a local moving company in the area made the before and after transition out and into the home very easy and economical.
Response by Functional Floors and Finishing, LLC: Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review! I am glad you are happy with the work Brian did an the experience!

Review by Tyler C. in Shelby Twp, MI
The project was not even close to what I was expecting. 590 square feet sanded refinish replace 17 boards. The floor is as rough as sandpaper. Nails showing no cracks filled. Work is very unprofessional. Got them from another very similar website to this one, t I spoke with someone and they said they are gonna come out and fix it for free when I already paid them 2490 dollars. So we will see if they come out and fix it.
Response by Functional Floors and Finishing, LLC: Thank you for bringing these issues to my attention. Although we hope to never have issues on a project, when they do occur, our goal is to resolve them as quickly as possible for our customers. It has now been a couple of weeks since we returned to make the necessary repairs and complete your project and I am glad to hear that your floors are much better. We will continue to be here for you if you happen to notice anything else that is less than satisfactory. Thank you for your business.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
