Kim will take it on with a smile on her face.

Tom knows our products and store inside and out. His eye for detail

will be great for insurance work and dealing with damaged flooring. No

one ever enjoys being in a situation where they need to use their

insurance. But Tom will be sure to take care of you, be thorough and

make sure everything is done properly the first time. Tom loves to stay
