About Us

            In 1993, Russ VanConant went to work for Hardwood Floor Company. In October of 1997, he had the opportunity to purchase the company that he loved working for, so he did.  Russ quickly recognized the potential of perfecting his craft, and decided that it would be his goal to provide the best in wood flooring service possible. With the help of his mother, Jan, running the show room, and his sister, Pam, maintaining the books, Russ began with one part-time worker, who assisted him with installations and sanding and refinishing projects. Within a year’s time, his crew grew to five full-time employees working in the field.

In 1998, Russ joined the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), offering him global resources regarding the Wood Flooring Industry. Russ prides himself in offering premier customer service, quality, and superior product knowledge. To date, he has successfully completed installation, sanding, and refinishing courses, advanced installation courses, and is currently the only certified Wood Flooring Inspector in Kern County.  In addition, he has completed numerous manufacturer sponsored courses to keep up with the ever changing Wood Floor Industry.

Hardwood Floor Company’s promise to their customers is that all work will be done “in house”, providing invaluable expertise, and no projects will ever be sub-contracted out. Russ personally oversees each installation, sanding, and finishing job done by his staff to insure that quality craftsmanship and workmanship shows through on every project.

Russ believes that in order to guarantee satisfaction, sharing his knowledge of floor maintenance and products with his customers will give them the necessary tools to care for their investment appropriately, and leave them happy for years to come.  It is because of Russ’ diligence and commitment to his customers that they have been the foundation of many referrals for Hardwood Floor Company throughout the years.
