Years in business: “Two months out here and over 20 years’ experience in the trade.”

Background: “I can do remodels. I have been doing flooring and finish carpentry for about 20 years in Florida mainly. I just recently moved to Pahrump and have been here for about two months. I just needed a change of scenery. I have done all kinds of flooring and door installations.
