Chris Wellhauser, began his career in the flooring industry as in installer in Buffalo New York. He learned first hand the best installation methods for wood flooring, laminate and carpet by installing custom flooring in residential homes through ten thousand square foot office buildings. He also learned working in 20 degree weather and a foot of snow is rather difficult. In 1998, he moved his business to Florida where he further educated himself through seminars, continued training and workshops into the proper installation methods specific to Florida's humid climate and conditions.

We sell and install all species of hardwoods and laminate

When you call on us, we bring samples of different textures, colors and styles in your price range. Solid hardwood flooring never goes out of style and has vastly improved with technology. Natural oak flooring has long been one of the most popular flooring choices and technology has allowed for bolder wood fashions that offer more design flexibility. Engineered hardwood flooring is now available from well managed forests to ensure a timeless supply for future generations. Engineered hardwood flooring is a perfect option for many homeowners and businesses and makes for a more eco-friendly option than solid hardwood. Secondly, engineered hardwood flooring can be used in glue-down floor applications which is best in Florida’s climate. The installation flexibility of these floors adds an element of dimensional state for heavy trafficked areas, or just about anywhere in your home or office.

In the past, regular bamboo flooring has been exploited due to its popularity. Today, you will find solid bamboo flooring around the globe more than ever before. It’s because bamboo offers today’s consumer contemporary style, functionality and one of the most green floor options in the world. At Direct Custom Flooring, we handle an enormous selection of solid bamboo and stained bamboo flooring. When you purchase from us, you can be confident you will receive the lowest price on bamboo flooring. With the popularity of solid bamboo floors, it was only a matter of time until the next generation of bamboo became available. Stranded bamboo flooring is made with shredded solid bamboo fused together under extraordinarily high pressure to create a floor that offers unique aesthetics combined with a toughness that can be used even in commercial settings. The new addition of stranded bamboo floors and its staining ability has created more options than ever.
Laminate flooring practically took over the flooring scene in the nineties and quickly became the alternative of having wood flooring without the maintenance associated with hardwood. Because laminate floors are “floating floors” (not attached to the sub-floor), laminate flooring can be installed in mobile homes. Laminate is installed simply by snapping planks together and requires no glue. Laminates literally changed the way we thought about flooring, and since has become one of the most popular flooring options. At Direct Custom Flooring we always give the best pricing to fit your budget. Simply stated few things can enhance the quality of a living space the way hardwood or a laminate floor can. It adds warmth, luster and charm to any room in your home or office.
