Meet the Team
Chris Caves, Owner / President
As a teenager, Chris began his flooring career as an installer. Building on that experience, he then started his own flooring installation business. Later, he worked as a top salesman for some of the leading flooring companies. In 1992, Chris joined his uncle, Warren Caves, in the family flooring business. When his uncle retired in 1995, Chris purchased the business. He began forming relationships with some of the largest flooring retailers in the country and transformed the business from a local installation company into a respected nationwide flooring supplier, finisher, and installer. His initial clients included Wolfgang Puck restaurants worldwide, Ralph Lauren stores worldwide, and Abercrombie & Fitch worldwide. Working on such diverse global projects gave Chris great insight on residential wood floor development. He’s committed to creating a product that transforms a client’s home into a thing of beauty, rich with history, reflecting each client’s uniqueness and style.
