When Lynette Waldrep brings a flooring sample to your home, you get more than just an estimate for the best price in Galveston County — you get an interior design consultation that is free with all purchases from Lynette’s Floors & More in Santa Fe.
“Often folks are surprised that the owner of the store actually came personally to give them an estimate,” she says. “That is just the way we do business — that is the brand of service that we are proud to offer.”
Her secret to success is listening to the needs of her clients and making sure they get the right product for the best price.
“When a customer comes into my store often they are unsure of what they need,” she says. “Listening to them describe their home, I can picture the area and have a good idea which floor to recommend. And that’s how a great relationship begins.”
Her satisfied customers say Lynette asks all “the right questions,” like how the room is used, the number of family members, including pets, and of course the budget. Lots of folks are convinced they want a wood floor but realize that a laminate or vinyl plank “wood look” is a better choice for their house — and they are always happy with the cost savings.
At Lynette’s Floors & More, the “more” means products such as countertops. Lynette carries Silestone quartz countertops installed by certified Silestone installers.
The natural quartz in Silestone makes it one of the toughest interior surfaces on the market. It resists scratching, staining and scorching and homeowners don’t have to worry about spills from coffee, wine, lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, makeup and many other common household products.
“Choosing a kitchen design is a very important decision since it is the heart of your home which sees the most activity and guests,” says Lynette. “Having a well-designed countertop or backsplash gives any home a special, custom look.”
Lynette’s Floors also carries Sensa Granite featuring SenGuard. SenGuard carries a 20 year, 100% stain protection warranty. It never has to be sealed, making it the perfect granite choice for indoor or outdoor use. Thanks to a great color selection and expert fabrication, Sensa Granite makes a great upgrade in many areas of the house including the kitchen, bathroom vanity tops, outdoor kitchens and fireplace surrounds.
Lynette daily gives advice concerning home remodeling, helping homeowners understand what materials are appropriate for their project. She has gained a countywide reputation for replacing a bathtub with a custom tile shower, for example.
The store carries a full line of flooring and carpet from leading mills such as Shaw, Mohawk, and Southwind; and now features the new Bliss program from Beaulieu. Bliss SoftSense carries a 20-year wear and a lifetime stain warranty. Several new styles from Aladdin are also displayed, made from an all new yarn system called SmartStrand, a new patented green technology from Mohawk Carpet Mills.
One of Lynette’s favorite products for that “wood look” is vinyl plank. The Waldreps have it in their own home and guests are constantly fooled by its genuine wood appearance.
“Flooring must be functional and still make a fashion statement,” she says. “It’s like buying a new vehicle — functionality and style are everything. And of course quality flooring should be seen as an investment because it increases the value of your home.”
And when it’s time for the installation, her clients say Lynette’s installers are simply the best to be found countywide. And most important of all her installers are honest and can be trusted in your home.
“Installing a floor is not like delivering an appliance,” she says. “We’re not talking about plugging in a refrigerator and the delivery man is gone.”
