About The Flooring Girl


debbie gartner the flooring girlThe Flooring Girl – Westchester County NY. I seem to be one of the few women in a male dominated industry…an industry which focuses on making the home look more beautiful, and an industry where women are often the primary decision maker. I have a flair for design and I have the patience to sit with my customers to help them pick out the right type of flooring, the best color and the best design layout for their taste and decor.

We were honored to have won the prestigious Angie’s List Super Service Award for 7 years in a row. And, we’ve won the Best of Houzz award.

I am no longer running my flooring business; I have started my own marketing company. This blog is for informational purposes only, and I hope you find the advice helpful.
