Fred brought this knowledge with him over 24 years ago when he moved to Modesto. Michael, his younger brother, an accomplished wood floor craftsmen himself, is also part of the team .

Our Happy Clients

We wanted to take a moment to thank you and your entire very skilled team ( Mike & Jay), for their wonderful installation of our mirage sierra maple floor. Our builder was very impressed with the installers. We know how difficult this work is and appreciate the professionalism and attention to all aspects of the work. We could not have asked for a better company. We would be glad to provide your firm with a reference.

Thank you for sending Rocky out so quickly to cut out that space for the dishwasher. We really appreciate all that your team has done for us.
Steve and Cassandra and Ty
Last week, your company installed new flooring in our family room, kitchen, and hallway. Rocky and Doug were the workers who completed the installation. They were very professional and are certainly a credit to your company. They both seemed to put in that bit of “extra” needed to complete the job. Thank you for attending to the new baseboard in the hallway. We are pleased with the flooring and service given by A Step Above Flooring and would certainly recommend it to anyone needed your services.
Del and Karen
We wish to thank you for all of your hard work in creating such a beautiful room in our home. The professional spirit and suggestions from you, your son, and patient staff helped us develop ideas for creating this beautiful room. As you know, this is a high traffic area. The beauty of the finish continues to look new and fresh. We have found it easier to keep up than the carpeted room. We look forward to working with all of you when we engage in restoring the original wood floor.
Mike and Kim
We want you to know how pleased we are with your serve in the recent upgrading of our hardwood flooring. The whole house project was complete with “ a step above” professionalism., quality of craftsmanship, friendly, efficient work crew, and office staff. We have been showing off our “new” look to friends, family, and there is a comfortable feel and added pride and ownership to our home. Please feel free to use this recommendation to others considering home improvement projects and thanks for excellent service from beginning to end.
Steve and Linda
Just a note to say thank you so much for another lovely job. My new bedroom flooring is spectacular; my husband and I are so pleased, not only with the workmanship, but with your quick response to our torn up original Treasurewood flooring your company originally installed for us years ago, due to a plumbing leak. Finding a close match to the discontinued Treasurewood and bringing us the sample was truly above and beyond wonderful customer service. Efficiently getting the job of tearing up the old flooring, installing the new one with new molding and replacing the furniture all in one day was fabulous. You’re so easy to work with and we can’t thank you enough for helping us get our home back together again! Given the trust we already had in you, it was not a problem when told by the plumber that the flooring had to be cut up to fix the leak. After all, we’d give you guys a call – no problem! And we were right. We’ve been telling everyone about you for years whenever people comment on our living/dining/hallway & bedroom done in Treasurewood by A-Step-Above Flooring. We will most certainly continue to do so.
