Summit Custom Hardwood Flooring: 10 Star Review!!

June 25, 2014

Greetings to the entire staff of Summit Custom Hardwood Flooring,

Our family would like to thank Summit Flooring for the most excellent service and result in the installation of our gorgeous new hardwood flooring. The hardwood was installed in our living room, office, and a bedroom in our home. At absolutely every level and aspect of service, Summit Custom Hardwood Flooring excels in knowledge and assistance. We were supplied with complete information and assurance for every inquiry before, during and after installation.

David Dwyer, Karen Kelln-Dwyer, and Elton Kelln were incredibly detailed and supportive in helping us to choose the perfect hardwood for our home and lifestyle. As well, David meticulously analyzed the structure of our home and our old hardwood floors. David fully explained the installation process ensuring that the entire process would run smoothly. David could not have been more thorough in ensuring the successful installation of the hardwood.

Installation was carefully done with precise attention to detail. Two of Summit Custom Hardwood’s highly skilled professionals, Peter and David O., completed the hardwood flooring installation. Peter and David O. were punctual, courteous, professional and a joy to have in our home. We would like to note that old flooring had to be removed first. Peter and David O. completed this arduous task with efficiency, care and proceeded to install the sub-floor for the glorious new hardwood flooring. We want to commend Peter and David O. for their obvious craftsmanship. These two professionals take great pride in their work and it shows. We are thrilled with the results. Peter and David O. installed extraordinary handmade original heat vents. Our hardwood flooring is the talk of the town! We feel like we have a brand new home.

It is a joy to be showing our new hardwood flooring to all our friends and family. We believe Summit Custom Hardwood Flooring should receive not just 5, but 10 stars! We recommend this company without reservation.

Thank-you for all your hard work and total professional service.

Quality Workmanship for the Alberta Legislature Library

July 16, 2013

Dear Dave,

I wish to commend you and your staff for the fine work you did on the restoration and refurbishment of the original cork floor in the Alberta Legislature Library. As you know, the floor was installed over 100 years ago and the intervening years were not necessarily kind to it. Bad repair jobs, harsh wear and tear in high traffic areas, direct sunlight, and various cleaning products all contributed to the worn state of the cork. It was not a straightforward undertaking. The complication of having the space painted at the same time while still being an operational library meant a lot of coordination, flexibility and expertise.

I was so pleased about the obvious care you and your crew took throughout the process. From the initial consultation, strategy, and planning to the final walkthrough, cleaning and unveiling and beyond, your attention to detail and concern that the floor was properly looked after was much appreciated.

When the Alberta Legislature Building celebrated the official centennial of its opening on September 2, 2012, Summit put in the extra effort to ensure that the Library was ready to be part of the festivities. We have just gone through our second major public opening since the work was completed (Canada Day 2013) and the floor continues to handle the increased traffic beautifully.

Please find enclosed a USB key with photographs taken throughout the process, as well as, two short Powerpoint presentations. It is only through the photos that you can gain appreciation for the  challenges that were involved in this project.

Again, the professionalism each and every Summit employee displayed and the quality workmanship they completed is much appreciated! It ensures the Legislature Library will have another 100 years to enjoy the ambience which springs from the original cork floor! Thank-you for your superior work!

Excellent, Friendly, On Time, and Professional

I was stunned with the final product! Thank you guys for your attention to detail and care you put into the project. From start to finish, your whole crew was excellent, friendly, on time, and professional. My old scratched up prefinished floor is now a beautiful site finished piece of art! Thanks again!

Impeccable Product & Installation

Summit Custom Hardwood Flooring’s product and installation was impeccable. We particularly appreciated their friendly attention to detail and love our new hardwood flooring. In addition, they refinished an old problem area and we have beautiful hardwood flooring where previously we had an eyesore. I would have no hesitation in recommending Summit for future work.

Outstanding Craftsmanship & Installation

I am writing this letter in appreciation for the service I received from Summit Custom Hardwood Flooring. From the moment I was greeted by Elton to the outstanding installation completed by Dennis I was treated like a valued customer! Elton completely educated me on the different types of flooring, the pros, cons and process. David came to my home and provided a detailed estimate within two hours of his visit. Sheldon arranged delivery of the product and kept in constant contact throughout the entire process from start to post installation. Dennis completed an extremely professional and detailed installation. He was very meticulous and left the home neater than he found it. In fact you wouldn’t have known there had been an installation save the outstanding craftsmanship he left behind.

In a time when customer service often takes a back seat, I was thoroughly impressed with not only the service but the final product. I intend on recommending Summit to all my friends contemplating hardwood flooring installation, they won’t be disappointed. Please pass my sincere thanks to Elton, David, Sheldon, and Dennis for the outstanding experience!

Letter of Endorsement

December 8, 2011

Summit Custom Hardwood played a significant role in the renovation of our kitchen. We removed a wall which necessitated repairs to the hardwood flooring. The style of hardwood flooring was rather unique and required them to locate the appropriate boards for replacement and manufacture some pieces. They did a fantastic job of ‘feathering’ the hardwood flooring so there is actually no indication that the floor was ever anything but perfect. They matched the wood perfectly and then completed the job with sanding and finishing.

They were at all times professional, showed up on time, did great work and were pleasant to have around. I would recommend them without hesitation.

The Little Things Make a Good Company Great

Dear Dave,

Guy and I would like to extend our thanks for a job well done on our home renovation. The new hardwood flooring that you installed fits in beautifully with the existing refinished floor. We couldn’t be happier with the result.

One thing that means a lot to us was the prompt response to our calls. You were there when you said you would be and you show pride in your work, ensuring that everything is done correctly. It is the little things that help make a good company great and you have shown that diligence and care to us as your customers. We are currently dealing with a hardwood flooring company in Winnipeg that has installed hardwood in our summer camp on Lake of the Woods. It has been a nightmare! If we had to do it all over again, we would surely call on Summit to do the job for us.

If you ever require a recommendation, we would be happy to talk to anyone who is trying to decide whether to use your company or not.

We wish you every success!!!!

All the best,

Lou and Guy Goodwin

Fabulous UV Coating

Dear Steve,

I was thoroughly impressed with you and your crew and the job you did at my place. The new Maple wood blends perfectly with the original hardwood flooring and the finish is beautiful. I really appreciate how much information you gave us so we were prepared for the job and what to expect. I thank you for the effort and a job well done!

By the way, that UV coating is fabulous.

Stunning Jatoba Floor

Hi David,

I wanted to drop you a line and thank you for the excellent work you and your crew did in my home. The new Jatoba hardwood flooring is stunning. I really did not expect it to be so breathtaking. The soft glow of the finishes are ideal for our well lit home.

You did an excellent job and I wish you much success in the future.

Love our Hardwood Flooring!


We just wanted to let you know who much we love our hardwood flooring. Wish we had put it in 10 years ago.

It was a pleasure meeting everyone at Summit. Karen was a great help in our hardwood flooring selection and the installers Steve and Aaron were precise and tidy. Dave helped in our decision of what rooms to put hardwood flooring. Not to forget Elton who responded to all of our questions. Everything was done with complete professionalism.
Thank you so very much.

Beautifully Refinished Maple Floors


Just wanted to thank you, Elton, Jason and Chris for all your help and great service getting our maple hardwood flooring refinished. I LOVE the Woca oil finish – they are so beautiful I can’t stop staring at them! Your customer service has been exceptional which is something you don’t find much these days. I would totally recommend your company to anyone considering new or refinishing hardwood flooring.

Thanks again,
