How it all started

FLOOR BOYS
Our story..

One day, Floor Boys’ owner and founder, Brian Peed, was told by a flooring industry veteran: “You can have high-quality products, great service or low prices, but you can’t have all three at the same time.”  Ever since, the mission of Floor Boys has been to prove him wrongAnd we have, consistently! 

The story of Floor Boys begins with the original Floor Boy, Brian Peed. He started in the industry by selling all types of products for some of the largest flooring retailers. In 2006, with almost two decades of flooring experience, Brian founded Floor Boys, LLC. He and his brother-in-law, Bart Taylor (who has recently rejoined Floor Boys as Installation Manager), decided to reinvent and reintroduce service to the flooring industry as installers of hardwood and tile to discerning customers.

Continued Growth 

 

Today, Floor Boys continues to growIn fact, we’ve grown so much that in 2013, we opened a newer, larger showroom to house even more high-quality flooring products for you to peruse. The Peed family has grown as well, with Ashton, Olivia, Gabby and Anna Grace joining Brian’s wife Megan to complete the Floor Girls. 

But even as we grow, some things still stay the same, like our determination to work hard, personally serve our customers like no big-box retail will, and provide high-quality installations that will last for years to come. If you’d like to experience the Floor Boys difference for yourself, contact us directly or stop by the Lexington retail or wholesale showrooms today!
