Andrew Linford

Above Board Flooring & Restoration, we are the “Lake Norman”, North Carolina area’s source for all things, Flooring & Restoration since 2006! We are not just another flooring store or flooring contractor, we’re one of the only companies in the area that holds exceptional industry credentials/standards and works hard to do every job right the first time, with no call backs! Mr. Linford went to Missouri State University in 1984 to 1990. Andrew was hired in Georgia to sell marketing to major flooring mills in 1991 (Shaw Industries, Mohawk Industries and other Retail Flooring Stores in Dalton, GA and others, in the surrounding areas, including Atlanta, GA).

Andrew Linford started this company in St. Louis, MO, back in 1984 as an installer working his way to college. The company was founded and established in 1995 by Andrew Linford. Andrew Linford is also a certified flooring inspector with the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) since 2007 and a certified (IFCII) LVP/LVT inspector as well. We’ve thrived over the years thanks to hundreds of word-of-mouth referrals from happy customers who love our work and our prices. We’re excited to show you why our business is built on loyal fans and the ability to put beautiful new flooring in your home with Tamara Linford design skills as well since 2016.

In 2024, our team has decided to make our 3200sqft showroom/warehouse by appointment only. You may ask why? I will answer that question, it’s called major overhead that we cannot afford as a small business owner and save you the cost of running our family-owned business, which will make us more competitive with our competition! Hopefully that will change in 2025!

We now offer “Shop in Home” and a “Product Catalog” on our website.
