    Ian MacKinnon North Vancouver
  • European Touch did two flooring jobs for me in the past two years. On both occasions, they showed up on time, coordinated the different aspects of work, and were respectful of our house and privacy as we lived through both renovations. Renovating is always disruptive but the team at European Touch Hardwood made it much easier. The floors are great!
    Bruce Blasberg North Vancouver
  • We first retained the services of European Touch six years ago after having interviewed several hardwood flooring companies, and have since used them exclusively for our last three home renovations. We have found them to be exceptionally knowledgeable about their products. They provided competitive and accurate estimates, and offered full attention to detail and quality workmanship. The installations were completed by their own installers, on-time and with an excellent follow-up service. We would not hesitate to recommend the services of European Touch Hardwood.
    Michael van Blokland Yaletown-Vancouver
  • In 2008, I employed European Touch Hardwood Inc. to special order and install African Wenge flooring in my newly purchased condo. The high standard of the product and its subsequent expert installation exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend European Hardwoods for their outstanding service, excellent standards, and attention to detail
    Margaret Horsman Vancouver
  • Why has ETH been my company of choice for various projects over the past ten years? Value for money. Extensive product knowledge. Exquisite installations. Quintessential professional service and work flow. Shopping for the floor in their stylish showroom is also a pleasure.
    Stan Baran Maple Ridge
  • European Touch supplied and installed a wide plank oak floor in our house. It was an outstanding and meticulous installation. The floor is a stand out feature in our contemporary renovated kitchen.
    Nick & Michelle Biggar Principal mcfarlane/green/biggar ARCHITECTURE+DESIGN, North Vancouver
  • A brief note of commendation to the Managers of ETH: we were well served by your Office Manager over 3 separate purchases covering the past 18 months. Your Estimator was gracious, competent and pleasure to work with. Finally, our staircase installer was magnificent! His pride in his work is commendable. The staircase he covered and finished is a feature in our home. Nice to do business with you!
    David Langmuir Vancouver
  • I wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did on my old oak floor. Also, it was great to come home and find everything clean. I was expecting a lot of dust but this was not the case. The movers did a terrific job and they were kind enough to put padding on the dining room chairs and some other furniture; I should have done it myself. Thank you to you and the people who did my floors and moved my furniture.
    Karen Gibbons Surrey
  • We've engaged European Touch Hardwood Inc. on several properties going back 20 years, and every time the experience was fabulous. No surprises, no hassles. When they commit, they deliver. The quality of the flooring is only exceeded by their service. We wouldn't trust our floors to anyone else. You can pay more, just not get more!
