  • NW Indiana Flooring gave us the best price we could find. We spoke with a couple of the other companies that come to your home but they really had crazy expensive prices. Plus, they really tried to push us into signing a contract on the spot. Steve Gordon came to our home and showed us all the carpeting options and gave us time to decide. no high pressure at all from Steve. Once we decided on what we wanted, the Gordon family took care of everything else without a hitch. We are really happy with our new carpet!
