Kimminau Wood Floors - Installation and Refinishing

About Kimminau Floors

Most people cringe at the thought of having their hardwood floors worked on.   They have heard horror stories about a hardwood contractor turning their home into a smelly, toxic dustbowl that left their home disrupted for weeks on end.

 We recognized these problems and decided to become 100% focused on the client experience, offering dust-free sanding solutions, odorless finishes, and a fully turn-key process that includes moving furniture, painting touch-ups, and other carpentry services.

Kimminau Floors currently has two warehouses in Grandview, Mo.  The main office located at 4230 Doctor Greaves Rd has over 10,000 square feet with a showroom.  Kimminau Floors manages 250+ hardwood projects each year.  Our niche is quality minded homeowners and contractors that appreciate our comprehensive turn-key solutions.  

Our mission is to provide clients with a stress-free and turn-key hardwood flooring experience.
