When Richard and Darlene Sykes decided to re model two bathrooms in their home and update the family room floor, they called on T he Floor Store for help. The couple’ s home is listed on the historic register as The Lonsdale Home. Their styles and tastes run toward traditional, favoring neutral colors. Subway tiles and vanity counter tops were installed,w hich fit the tim e period of the hom e. “Che a and Dawn were very helpful and friendly from the moment we walked in the door through the entire process. Each time I or my husband called, they were very helpful and accommodating. Both have been a complete pleasure ,” Darlene said of the sales staff at T he Floor Store. Darlene said that the staff were always on time, alw ays cleaned up at the end of every day, and “stayed w ith it until the job w as done.”
“Everyone on their crew w as professional, courteous and conscientious of this historical hom e,” she added.
