About Us

tile and kitchen cabinets finished

Simple Kitchen cabinets. We orgiginally made a lot of these cabinets in place. The doors and fronts were made to match some existing work. Later the cabinets were changed from a dark wood to what you see. The kitchen counter tops are higher than normal which makes it easier for my wife.

Our family has been servicing the Hampton Roads area and the surrounding areas of NC for over 50 years. Melvin started doing floors when he was 14 years old to help his mom with some income. Melvin has trained his 3 sons, grand children and my self all about the hardwood floor business. I have 3 children, 3 grand children and one great grand child.

Melvin has passed his knowledge unto the family and we look forward to bring that experience into your home. 

Melvin’s Motto to his family:

Do a great job today so you will have one tomorrow!

There is great satisfaction in seeing an old floor come back to life

Customer comments:

Kenneth P. in Hampton, VA:
Project: Removed the old carpet and installed new hardwood flooring.
They did an outstanding job and it was within my budget. The change makes the house looks much better. I will not hesitate to call them again for future projects. I don’t just recommend, I highly recommend anyone to contact them for a job.

Pam Stewart in Newport News, VA:

Dealing with Apple Floor Solutions has been a pleasure. I was in a bind and needed my floors done immediately. You came right out, gave me a quick [fair] estimate and had the work completed — all in less than one week. And with no mess! The work is flawless. So beautiful – I’m so very satisfied and would recommend you to ANYONE – and I rarely offer my recommendation. Many thanks — Pam, Newport News VA

Thank you very much for a very professional job

John Koenig:

First class job and dust-free too!

Paul Sumner:

The folks at Apple Floor Solutions did a fantastic job on our hardwood floor refinishing. There work was done quickly and professionally while offering a competitive price. I would recommend them to anyone considering restoring their hardwood floors. You will not be disappointed!

Nelson Eskey:

We just had all of our hardwood floors refinished by Apple. I used to have a business finishing, or re-finishing, woodwork (bright work) on boats, so I am a very picky person. Bill Etheridge, with Apple, met and exceeded all my expectations re-finishing our floors. If you want an honest person to work with and a fair price, I strongly recommend Apple.

Note: This is NOT a paid political announcement, we just love our floors!!

Claudia A. from Newport News VA:

Fast and prompt service, great job, reasonably priced.

Joe in Virginia Beach, VA:

This is what hardwood floors are supposed to look like.

Judy Sweetland:

Comments: An incredibly first-rate company and job! As someone who owns their own HVAC Company, I highly value ethical, honest, reliable work while providing the customer a very competitive price. Apple Floor Solutions more than exceeded my expectations! Their dust-containment system is top-of-the-line and their eye for detail is impressive. They offer personalized service with professionalism that can’t be beat. I will definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone looking to have their floors refinished.

Michael Simpson:

We had the hardwood floors redone in our first house.  The house is now empty so it was a good time to have them done.  Apple Floor Solutions is the ONLY company I called and the ONLY company I would have had done my floors.

This is the third time I have used Bill @ Apple Floor Solutions.  The first time was in 2005 when we bought the house we live in now, moving from the house we just had redone.  The job he did then was outstanding.  We had another house in 2007 that we had hired someone else to install and finish the hardwood floors being put in; they were awful, so we hired Bill to come in to see if he could fix it.  I’ll tell you he was magical.  So I knew when this house came up for refinishing, there was no one else to call.  I believe his prices to be extremely reasonable for the job he/they do, and I can not over emphasize how pleased I am with their work

Loren Hart:

Had a section of hardwood flooring replaced and the entire room sanded, stained and sealed.

Bill did an outstanding job.  He worked around our schedule.  He even came on Saturday and Sunday to finish the job.


Annetta Killian:

We had the dining room and living room floors sanded, sealed and polyurethane. The carpets were removed by Apple Floor Solutions and the work was completed in three days.

I had a price quote from the company a few months earlier, but decided to hold off. They were still able to honor the price that was quoted to me previously when I finally decided to go ahead with the project. Bill was really nice and very trustworthy. He was very honest with the work that he did and worked throughout the day to get the project done in less than three days. I was very satisfied with the work provided.

Anne McIntosh:

We bought a house built in the 1960. Removed the carpet and the hardwood floor had paint on it and water marks. The company sanded down the hardwood floor (white oak) and refinished it.

It went very well.  He did the work fast and well.
