FLORKOWSKYS HISTORY

Remember the year Star Wars came out? When the BeeGees ruled the airwaves? The year was 1977 — a landmark time when Florkowskys first opened our doors to Edmonton and area residents. A lot has changed over the years, but our commitment to providing outstanding products with service excellence has stayed the same. We now feature a show room that displays new hardware and products — all produced in-house. Over the years we’ve learned many unique and creative design ideas that will help you determine the look and feel that best suits your individual needs. Our customers come from every walk-of-life: from walk-ins to renovators, home builders and more.

Here at Florkowskys we offer a variety of stain colors and tinted lacquers. We also provide custom stain matching or lacquers if you’re looking for a specific color for that unique touch. Our show room offers convenient colour samples for you to take home — allowing you to pick and choose what best suits your look and lifestyle.

To finish the product we use two spray booths with an exhaust fans so the finish is smooth, flat and has minimal dust specs. Finishing at Florkowskys is one of the main reasons why we’re still in business today — every product that leaves our shop will last a lifetime if treated properly.

The importance of choosing the correct wood species is another topic that we can explain. In our show room we have many different species to choose from. Every different species of wood has its own individual grain textures and colour — there is always a slight variance between pieces because Mother Nature didn’t make any two pieces of natural wood the same way!

If you’re looking for a more streamlined look, simply pick paint grade material and apply a tinted lacquer — the colour should be the same on all the pieces.

Florkowskys always has time for you — if you have any questions, or simply want to come in to take look at our products, give us a call and one of our associates will gladly arrange a time for you to come in. Due to the high volume and size of jobs that we are dealing with, quotes and site measures might take a few weeks before someone can take a look at the projects.
