How two of the best flooring companies became one

 
Sometimes bringing two things together can make both better. Buffaloe Floors is a fusion of two of the most trusted names in flooring based out of the Houston area, Buffaloe Floor Covering and Floors and Up.

Our two companies served different clientele and realized that by working together we could offer more services and a better value to our customers. And just like adding the right floor covering or window treatments to a room can bring out the best in both, Buffaloe Floors combines the strengths of each company to create the best customer experience in the Houston area.

Buffaloe Floors has over 100 years of combined experience selling and installing quality flooring, countertops, and window treatments. We are trusted by homeowners and businesses throughout the region, and we've built our combined reputation by offering the very best service and installation at the best possible prices.

With our combined resources Buffaloe Floors will be elevating our showrooms into the finest product showcases in the area, featuring an ever wider range of products and services. We'll be bringing these offerings to more customers in more places, with a large, highly-trained installer network capable of providing the premium service our customers have come to expect.

We have thousands of flooring, countertop, and window covering options in our showrooms, ready to light up your imagination and help you visualize what's possible. Our flooring professionals bring innovation and style to every project and can help you create a beautiful space you'll be proud to call your own.

Our history - Buffaloe Floors
 
 

Our history

 
Before we came together to create Buffaloe Floors, our separate companies had both been serving the Houston area for over 50 years, with remarkably similar stories.Buffalo Floor Covering was started in 1965 by Glenn and Irene Buffaloe. Irene ran the books while Glenn cleaned carpets. It wasn't long before he added carpet sales, and from there the company took off.Around the same time, Floors and Up's began selling carpet door to door. Within a few years, a small showroom was established. Over the next decade, the company expanded into custom carpets, hardwood, laminate and tile.

In the early ‘80s, both companies were outgrowing their spaces and moved into new, 10,000 square foot warehouse and showroom buildings. Over the next 30 years, the two companies grew into powerhouses within the industry, serving residential customers as well as builders, apartment complexes, hotels, retirement homes, restaurants, office buildings, and high-rises.With histories so similar, and a shared commitment to unparalleled design, quality installation, and award-winning service, it was only a matter of time before both companies became one.

Today, we continue to grow our services and source new surface options. We are proud of our long history in Houston and both families continue to ensure the best all-around service possible with professional expert staffing and a customer first approach.Trust our experience. Trust our reputation. Buffaloe Floors is committed to you and your home surfaces needs.
