Fantastic work, delivered as promised!

This is a recommendation for Evan, the owner of Alternative Surfaces. Not only is he efficient, clean, and an excellent installer he was always on the job when he said he would be, this alone is rarely seen these days. I cannot praise his work enough, as such, I have recommended him to several of my friends.

We would like to thank you for the outstanding job you did converting the “ugly concrete” floor we had in our garage to a “beautiful granite” floor! Only one word can describe it, “AWESOME”.
We are including pictures of the floor with our letter, but quite honestly, in this case a “picture is not worth a thousand words” and the pictures do not do justice to the beauty of our floor. You must see it yourself to understand how nice this floor system really is. Our restored 1951 Ford pick-up truck now has a home that brings out its beauty ten fold!
Many of our friends and neighbors have stopped by to see this “miracle conversion” of our garage floor. They want to know when you can return to do their floors as well.
As you know, we were concerned about the slipperiness of the floor after the conversion, but those worries are gone. This system is less slippery than the bare concrete it replaced. And we believe the durability of this floor will give us many years of use.
So, thanks again, and please tell whoever is considering this floor system to give us a call so we can brag about it to them also!

Once again, we want to express how impressed and grateful we are with your outstanding and beautiful work. It is difficult to find someone dependable. Harder still to find someone with high integrity and relentless dedication to excellence. And rarest of all to find someone with the talent, knowledge, special skills, and craftsmanship to turn those dedicated high standards to beautiful, practical, and long-lasting results. We truly feel blessed to have met you and to now have an incredible garage floor.
We also want to thank you for all your care and sensitivity with our home and property. And for your follow-up and support afterward – We could not be happier or more impressed with the level of service and quality you bring to every aspect of the process. You have created and provide a rare and outstanding service.

It is our pleasure to recommend the services of Evan & his company Alternative Surfaces. My husband and I chose to use Evan’s company after a referral from a neighbor.
From the beginning of the process Evan showed that he cared about giving us excellent service and advice. He took the time to explain our options fully and help us choose a color and finish that would work best with our home and lifestyle. After showing us the samples of our choice, he assured us that he would be happy to come back and show us more if we desired. As a result of his patience and conscientiousness, we made the perfect choices. Furthermore, he and his team are punctual and exceptionally courteous, which made working with them a pleasure.
Our faith in Evan and his team paid off. We are delighted with the beauty of our garage floor and by how much they enhance our home. All of our friends and family who have seen our floors have commented on the high quality of Alternative Surfaces work, and some of them are already considering using Evan and his team for their own future projects. We are grateful to have worked with a company like Alternative Surfaces that believes in providing an outstanding service. We would definitely use them again.

We are writing because we feel compelled to compliment you on many aspects of the service your company recently provided in our home:
Your Crew — Your guys were great. They were very nice and went about their work efficiently and finished on time! Took a lot of time to prepare the surface and it sure shows.
Your Service — We always felt like the most important customer you had. Thanks for taking the time to explain the whole process to us.
The Finished Product — The most important thing of all was the finished garage floor. It looks fantastic. We were really very nervous about having this work done, but we are so thrilled with the results. The floor is beautiful!
T. Driggs, Portland, Oregon
I want to thank you for the excellent job that your company did on my garage floor.
The initial site inspection and proposal were done very soon after I requested and presented in a clear, professional format. The work was started and completed within the timeframe that was given prior to the start of construction. The quality of the craftsmanship was excellent. Last, but not least, the job site was always clean and free of dust and debris as promised. It was a pleasure working with you and I would be happy to give you a reference or referral at any time in the future.
Kindest regards,
Scott W., Portland, Oregon
You’d think we had a baby the way neighbors and friends keep dropping by to ooh-and-ahh over our new floors. I keep looking at them myself and can’t believe the transformation.
It’s not just your skill I admire, but also the pleasure you take in working with wood and your pride in creating something beautiful. You are a craftsman. I don’t just love the job you did, I respect it, too.
And if only every contractor were like you! You delivered what you said you’d do when you said you’d do it. I have not contracted with anyone who has shown as high a level of professionalism and craftsmanship. I am delighted to recommend you and have already mentioned you to friends and relatives.
I know you’re proud of your floor, and I promise we’ll take good care of them. Thank you for a very fine job.
Most sincerely,
M Emery, Sherwood, Oregon
We would like to tell you how much we love our Gorgeous Garage Floor. It is more beautiful than the samples we saw or the picture on the brochure. It has surpassed our expectations. When people walk up to our garage whether they are friends, family, or other contractors, they literally stop short. The first thing they do is ask if it’s still wet, the next thing they do is, bend down to touch it. (When was the last time you walked into someone’s home and had the urge to touch their floor?)
We have had other contractors in our home since finishing our garage; they have asked to come back to our home after their work is done to take pictures for their sales representations. The response has been incredible. We could not be happier with the finished product or the technicians you sent to our home. Ed was extremely professional and a pleasure to do business with. He was patient, informative, polite, and trustworthy. He takes pride in his work and it mattered to him that we be happy with the final product. Thank you for sending him to our home and thank you for our Gorgeous Floor.

To Whom It May Concern
I would like to take this opportunity to let you know how I feel about my garage floor recently done by Alternative Surfaces. We are very happy with our new floor and very glad that we had it installed in our home. Friends, family, and neighbors have all had virtually the same reaction when they come into our home for the first time with the new floor: “WOW, I’ve never seen anything like this before, I love it!”
When we first saw the floor samples at the Home & Garden show, we definitely liked what we saw but had never heard of this type of flooring before. Your staff at the Home Show was very courteous and informative, they explained the product and answered any questions that my wife and I had at the time.
We set up an in-home estimate and you showed up at my home on time and provided an estimate for the job. We went to contract and your installers showed up on time and completed the job on schedule. The workmanship of the job was fabulous.
We now have a floor in our garage that we are very proud of, it is a huge improvement over the wall to wall dullness that we replaced. We love our new garage floor and would recommend Alternative Surfaces to anyone.
Keep up the great work! You are doing a great job and you have a terrific product. Thanks again for your attention to detail and your promptness throughout the entire process.
