We reached out to Nor-Cal floors to help us create a unique, rustic painted floor for the 2014 Traditional Home Napa Valley Showhouse main kitchen and breakfast room. With Matt’s tireless efforts, patience and creativity we created an amazingly beautiful floor that set the stage for our vineyard farmhouse kitchen. As designers we are always pushing for a look that is fresh and new. Nor-Cal Floors went over the top to make the vision happen in a timely, professional manner. Thank you and Bravo!!!

This is a great company to work with. They have a great product and are very knowledgeable. Their customer service is second to none.
I have used Nor-Cal for many projects in the past few years. We specify them as often as possible because we love working with them. They are incredibly efficient and they constantly accommodate us with matching custom colors and finishes. I’ve recommended them to family and friends for their flooring needs and I plan on using them many more times in the future. Ami and Matt are extremely personable and great to do business with. They make the entire process easy, and the end result is always gorgeous.

I have used Nor-Cal Floor Design on projects we have designed for clients (of our company, SANDBOX) as well most recently for our personal residence. Their products are unique and extraordinary! We installed a hand-scraped 13″ wide Bavarian Oak floor. It is absolutely stunning! Their install methods go a step beyond many, and they were the only ones willing to install and warranty a floor of this width over in-floor radiant heat. They worked with our budget, delivered on-time, and their service and install work is top notch. I highly recommend them!

I very rarely write reviews. However, if you have a hardwood floor problem that is important to you and has lots of complexity and pitfalls, I recommend Nor-Cal Floor Design . They have just finished and they did a great job. We had a big water leak and then flood of our home in Truckee, Calif. The cherry floor was ruined…..and it was a favorite part of the house to me. Nor-Cal was timely, professional and easy to deal with. More important, they made tough issues go away, e.g.:
– the floor is only made by a company in Austria and was 14 years old.
– the manufacturer no longer made the right thickness, but made a special run.the original length was not available, but that issue was worked around.
– air freight was expensive, but necessary for timing and was fully examined and minimized.
– special little needs like matching colors, saving extra wood, blending finishes and providing access to a mid floor electric outlet were accommodated with zero hassle.
The problem was not fun, but having capable help whom I like and trust sure made it easier.

We chose Matt Vannoy, owner of Nor-Cal Floor Design, to guide and assist us with the right flooring choice for our new home. We chose Austrian Rustic Walnut flooring, which is one of the highlights of our new home. Matt personally supervised the flooring installation and we truly appreciated his expertise, professionalism and commitment to the highest quality workmanship and customer satisfaction. His personal integrity and commitment to excellence was in the forefront at all times!
- Mark & Bridget Wright, Truckee CA
We want to truly thank Matt and Ami Vannoy at Nor Cal Floor Design for providing us with exceptional custom floors for our home. Matt spent many hours with us to determine the best choices and applications for the floors. We appreciate that the floors were done by hand in his local shop and that extreme care was taken in regards to providing us with a hypo-allergenic product for a better home environment. We are extremely pleased with the results of our Rustic French Oak floors. The natural oils provided a stunning result that gave our wood floors two different finishes; a light-washed look upstairs and a sleek dark antique-look downstairs. We enjoyed working with them every step of the way as each leg of the project was completed in a timely manner and the quality craftsmanship was evident in the finished product. We love our floors!
- Shawn and Jill Milne, Truckee, CA
Matt Vannoy of NorCal Floor Design was wonderful to work with. He stood out above the rest during our search for wood flooring, as the quality of his product is unique. Matt took us to a number of locations to see the different kinds of flooring he had installed. His incredible attention to detail, the beauty and durability of his floors, and his professional manner all made it very clear to us that NorCal Floor Design was the right choice for us. Matt followed through on every request, and made several samples for us until he had achieved the final look we wanted. We are delighted with our floors, and would give our highest recommendation to Matt and Amy of NorCal Floor Design.

I now have gorgeous grey stained wood floors in my Truckee house thanks to Matt and Ami Vannoy. Working with Matt and Ami has been such a joy from start to finish and they consistently exceeded my expectations in every aspect of my project. Matt quickly understood my design aesthetic and presented a perfect palette of grey finishes to choose from. Matt’s work is fast, accurate and neat which is rare to get all three nowadays. Ami was proactive and kept me informed of the phases of my project and her projected and actual dates were always accurate. I always knew where my project stood at all times. I never could have imagined how successfully this floor has transformed the look and feel of the house into a more contemporary design. I am so pleased with my grey floors and the entire process of getting to work with Matt and Ami, I will be having them install the same grey floor in my house in San Francisco.

Superior quality and installation. Matt Vannoy of Nor-Cal Floor Design installed an engineered wood floor over a hydronic heat system in our house and it is, without question, the best product we could have ever found. The quality of the wood floor, together with Mr. Vannoy’s professionalism, knowledge and attention to detail created the most beautiful floor we have seen yet. We completely recommend Nor-Cal Floor Design and believe that if someone is shopping for a wood floor product, they should go nowhere else. Five star minimum rating.

Just a note to let you know how pleased we are with the work Matt recently did in installing new wood floors in our living room, dining area and kitchen. Of all the contractors we dealt with during our demolition and remodel Matt was the most prompt, professional and pleasant we encountered. Matt’s attention to detail was greatly appreciated and the finished floors are perfect. Matt was as particular with our home as he’d have been with his own and we would highly recommend his business to anyone.

We spent 4 years constructing our new 5,000 sq.ft home. We spared NO expense. In order to achieve the rugged, worn look we desired, we found and tore down a 105 year old fish cannery in Alaska and had the wood from the cannery and its pier shipped to Mammoth Lakes, Cal. The extra wide distressed plank wood floors came from Europe. Nor-Cal Floor Design (Matt) was both patient and creative in dealing with myself, the contractor, the architect and most of all Jim Sams, the designer. Color after color, tint after tint, finish after finish, the process was completed to exacting specifications that we all felt complimented the design and feel of the home. Matt never wavered in his desire to please us and help accomplish our dream. His knowledge about woods, finish, color and installation always made us feel confident that we were in “good” hands. As it turned out, we were in great hands! He completed the installation in a very timely manner and even a little ahead of schedule. The finish he used has held up well in spite of 3 dogs, two teenagers and many guests coming in and out with their shoes on both summer and winter. I would highly recommend Matt and Nor-Cal Floor Design to any discriminating contractor, designer or owner installing wooden floors of any type.

I was interested in a staggered wood look to protect the wall behind my poker table. I found Admonter wood panels on Houzz, sold by Nor-Cal Floor Design. Ami from Nor-Cal answered my emails very quickly, sent me samples and arranged shipping. Everything went very smoothly, and I’m very happy with the project. I would recommend Nor-Cal Floor Design without hesitation.
