"Christine Armstrong at Finstads Carpet One has been helping us choose flooring and tile for over 14 years. She has a great design sense and we always trust her judgement when it comes to selecting the best quality materials for our budget. It''s impossible to find a wide selection of quality materials and get that kind of personal assistance at a box store, which is why we keep returning to Finstad's."

— Stephanie Wallace


"I had the pleasure of working with Chris and Christine during the construction of my new home. They were extremely patient and helpful when it came to choosing the flooring and the window treatments. The end result is fabulous. If I had to do it all again, I would choose Finstad's Carpet One again."

– Sharon Linstid

"My sincere thanks to Finstad's, and to Christine, a sales staff and in-home design consultant! A tremendous service provided by Finstad's is their complimentary in-home consultation. Christine guided me through possible selections for our remodel, and when I found myself debating how to pull it all together to create a unique, artistically pleasing look, she came to my home and offered suggestions. Her artistic touch enabled us to transform our dated kitchen into a fresh, new, inviting, work and entertaining space, and stay within our budget! It's entirely changed the feel of our home! Thank you Finstad's for offering this fantastic customer service and broad product line, and thank you Christine for your expertise!!!"

"For forty years as a design professional I have relied on Findstad's Flooring for guidance in the selection of the proper flooring products to be used in particular situations. Their expertise has has insured that I was specifying the best products available. Finstad's knows flooring."

– Ray Johnson, CWG Architects

finstads-carpet-one-floor-home-helena-mt-testimonials-vinyl"We chose Finstad's for all our flooring needs for our 2010 custom parade home at Mountain View Meadows. The natural hickory wood floors throughout most of the main level, the open stairway and upper loft created a true "Wow" factor along with the beautiful black slate that accented the entryway, the kitchen and the powder room. Everyone noticed the ultra soft feel of the master bedroom carpet. Of course, the tiled floors and showers in the master and guest bathrooms were truly elegant and the patience sales associate Anthony Juliano exhibited in working with us to select just the right colors to compliment the wall colors and granite countertops was exceptional. When one of our flooring choices proved no longer available from the manufacturer, owner Doug Hogan was on top of it immediately. Within days he had researched and found new samples for us of similar products from other manufacturers and met the price of the original even though our second choice was higher. Finstad's flooring selections and customer service are second to none. We certainly will work with them again."

– Mark Runkle & Rebecca Ryland

"Christine was a great help to me as I was decorating during my kitchen and bathroom remodel. She asked about my flooring and tile needs and helped me make choices to match my home style and colors. I appreciate her expertise because the choices were overwhelming. Because of Christine's advice, everything came together beautifully."

– Christine Emerson

"I've worked with Christine on several house projects over the past few years and she has been amazing to work with. She has an incredible sense of style, color and design along with being extremely professional, and providing great customer service. It's fun to work with her because I give her an idea of what I want and she comes up with several suggestions for me to select from. Christine really makes you feel like you are part of the creative process and she is so open to working with you and your ideas."

The Finstad's Carpet One team has proved to be the most professional and courteous flooring retailer we've had the pleasure of working with.

– Brett & Kathy James, James Home Builders

"I have had the opportunity to work with Finstad's Carpet and Greg Gardiner since we started our residential property management business in Helena around 1995. We have worked with them again and again since that time on an extensive range of flooring projects. We have a wide variety of apartments and therefore require a wide variety of flooring options to meet our needs. Greg has consistently provided planning, selection, and even hands-on help to meet these sometimes complicated requirements. In our business, we strive to minimize downtime whether new flooring or major remodels, and Greg has always offered the right solution for the situation. He has also helped us save thousands of dollars over the years by assisting us with large quantity purchases and working with many different installation environments. When it came time to build our personal residence a few years ago, there was no doubt about who we wanted to do our floors. Greg helped with the myriad carpet, vinyl, tile, and laminate decisions and we could not be more pleased with the results. One other great thing about Finstad's Carpet is their support for literally dozens of local activities. From Carroll College to the high schools and many other civic events, Finstad's invests in the Helena community."

– William S. (Bill) Darcy

Finstad's Carpet One has delivered the right flooring products to meet those expectations time and time again. The professional staff at Finstad's Carpet One has the experience and expertise to understand our design intentions and recommend the right product for our needs. Finstad's Carpet One is our go to team for our flooring needs."

– Mosaic Architecture

"Without any hesitation I would recommend Finstad's and Christine. I'm a devoted shopper and I check a lot of sources before I buy. Finstad's has been consistently the best price on a variety of flooring and window coverings. Sometimes the price difference has been pretty dramatic on the exact same product and brand. I particularly enjoy working with Christine. She is knowledgeable about a variety of products and really able to work with a lot of different styles, budgets and personal tastes. I think you will find excellent service and advice without ever feeling like your being pushed or hurried into buying. P.S. I am not that easy to impress."

– Jane Larcombe, Easy Living Inc.

"Building a house involves an overwhelming amount of decisions to make, but Christine made us feel at ease immediatley from the moment we first walked into the store. With her expertise, design ideas, and her ability to understand the look I was trying to achieve we had the majority of our flooring picked out right away. She also assisted us in picking out cabinets, paint and countertops that complement our flooring and is now helping us with the fireplace tile too. Our floors are beautiful, easy to take care of and great for our kids too." 

– Troy & Kris Brandt

"We recently remodeled our home and needed to replace the carpet in all of the bedrooms. We looked at many carpet stores and our decision to work with Finstad's was easy. We had the pleasure of working with Anthony Juliano, who was very helpful in explaining the different carpet types, and he introduced us to a new product called Tigressa. Anthony made all of the arrangements for the installation that fit our limited timeline. The installation by Jon was timely and exceptional. We were so impressed with our new Tigressa carpet and the service from Finstad's that we had two additional rooms carpeted a few weeks later! We can say that working with Finstad's was one of the high points of our remodel. We truly appreciate Anthony's friendliness, professionalism and his willingness to take the extra steps to ensure that we were happy. Thank you so much for the quality carpet and the exceptional service!" 

– Mark & Chinh Kreisberg

finstads-carpet-one-floor-home-helena-mt-testimonials-installation"In my opinion, Finstad's is unmatched in customer service, quality of installation and overall commitment to their customers and local design professionals. Whether working on privately funded, non-bid projects, or publicly bid projects, Finstad's has been an invaluable resource. I have recommended Finstad's to multiple private clients and they have always went above and beyond to ensure our common client is receiving the flooring they want at a competitive price. Furthermore, their installation team has always been professional and is highly skilled at their craft, always taking pride in their work. In addition to privately funded work, Finstad's has always been willing to work with me in identifying and specify flooring for publicly bid projects. They have always provided this service at no cost to me and with no guarantee they will successfully bid the project. I know of no other flooring retailer in the Helena valley that will provide this service to architects and design professionals. Not only will I continue to recommend Finstad's to clients, but will also continue to recommend them to all of my family and friends."

– Jason M. Davis, AIA, NCARB

"As a commercial property manager, I know first-hand the importance of working with people you can count on to provide a good product for a good price, but when I started working with Finstad's Carpet One over 12 years ago – I found I was getting much more than that. They provide top notch customer service! When I call, they respond. They go out of their way to help me find just the right product, whether it be carpet, vinyl flooring, ceramic tile, or window blinds, all within the budget I'm working in, and have worked miracles to do an installation in a nearly impossible time frame. And they follow up to make sure I'm satisfied with the end result. They are proficient, efficient, professional and friendly, and make doing business with them a pure pleasure. If you want to eliminate some of the headaches of a remodeling project or a new construction job, I recommend you call Finstad's Carpet One."

– Kathy Brown, Project Coordinator at Great Northern Town Center

"I recommend Finstad's to all our custom home and renovation clients. As a general contractor I have found their service to be outstanding. From design/sales team to the installation crews their service is excellent in every way. They do everything that they promise to do, on time and every time."

– Jay Heslep, Heslep Construction, LLC

finstads-carpet-one-floor-home-helena-mt-testimonials-tigressa"As a local business owner I understand the importance of honesty and integrity which is why I would definitely recommend Anthony at Finstad's flooring. He was a true professional who has the ability to listen and understand your flooring needs. Anthony was always available to answer any of my questions and concerns. I am extremely satisfied with my flooring, and would not hesitate to use Anthony for any of my future flooring needs."

–Staci Ferlicka, Owner of Haute Headz Hair & Nail Design

"I had the pleasure of working with Anthony on all my flooring needs, business and personal. Anthony was the most professional salesman in the home improvement business I have worked with in 20 years. He assisted me with our flooring needs at Bowser's Lucky Dog Casino as well as Copper Club Casino. His patience and professionalism throughout the process helped us find exactly what we wanted. In regards to my personal needs, I referred back to Anthony for his assistance in my updating my rental property. I also moved into a new home in April 2010. Under short notice Anthony was able to help me refloor the entire house, carpet and hardwood. With the assistance I received from Anthony, the finished product far exceeded my expectations. Through the experiences I've had with Anthony, I not only was fortunate to work with a true professional, but gained a good friend. I would refer Anthony for any commercial job and/or home flooring needs."

"We have really enjoyed working with Greg at Finstad's Flooring. Greg has always gone out of his way to provide exceptional customer service to us and we are grateful to have Greg and Finstad's in Helena serving Carroll College."

– Thomas McCarvel

"Several years ago my wife and I began the construction of our retirement home in Helena, Montana. My general contractor introduced me to employees at Finstad's in the hope that they could assist my wife and I in purchasing certain items for the house. Mr. Gregg Gardner assisted us in the purchase of tile, carpet, laminated flooring and window blinds remaining patient while my wife and I discussed what we thought would be best. Finstad's sold us great products at a fair price and remained there for us after the sale if we had any questions or concerns. We have continued to shop at Finstad's throughout the years and will continue to due so when the need arises. I have in the past, and will continue in the future, recommend Finstad's to friends and family."

"From start to finish our experience with Finstad's Flooring was absolutely awesome. Our salesman, Anthony, took the time to listen to our situation and was able to offer an amazing solution to our problem. We were very pleased with the customer service and the quality of the flooring that we selected. Anthony went above and beyond normal customer service and delivered outstanding assistance and follow-up throughout the entire process. We were very impressed with the installer and the installation itself and the end result was perfect. Our carpet and tile entry look incredible. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks to Finstad's and their excellent staff and products we will be singing their praises and enjoying our flooring for years to come. We highly suggest Finstad's Flooring for all of your flooring needs... you will not be disappointed!"

finstads-carpet-one-floor-home-helena-mt-testimonials-tile"Not only was I thrilled at Finstad's competitive prices, you might say I was "floored" by their stellar customer service and meticulous installation work, I'll never consider a big box store again for flooring needs. The lost art of customer service can be found at Finstad's!"

– Theresa Lode

"We recently purchased flooring from Finstad's for our home. From choosing the carpet to the installations we could not have been happier. Chris helped in our selection based on our needs, coordinated the installation and followed up on the outcome. The home town customer service was excellent. If you are looking for an outstanding product and the best customer service contact Chris at Finstad's."

– Marlys Weatherwax

"We recently purchased a new carpet for our living room. We worked with Anthony and have to say, he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He is a very thoughtful and friendly person and was of great help in making our decision as to which carpet to choose. We also loved the beautiful guarantee that Finstad's offers, as it is reassuring to know that if the carpet you chose is not quite right, you can change it. All in all we received really great service from Anthony and Finstad's."

– Susie Petersen

"As builders in Helena, we use Finstad's Carpet One for the flooring in our houses and also in the personal homes that we have lived in. We love being able to use a local business while still getting a great price for our money, and a good product. Perhaps on the top of our list in why we use Finstad's is because of the wonderful customer service we receive. We have worked through the years with Greg Gardner and have found him to be exceptional. He understands that our priority in building the homes that we do, along with the quality, is being able to get the houses finished in a very timely manner and he goes above and beyond to help us in achieving that goal."

finstads-carpet-one-floor-home-helena-mt-our-experts-christine-testimonials"We have worked with Christine for more than 15 years. We first worked with her to remodel a bathroom and kitchen in our first home. After moving, she helped us with remodeling our new second floor-- from selecting flooring for the bathroom and bedrooms to picking wall colors and helping make the kids rooms look creative and fun. In our current home, she helped us with a complete remodel of our bedrooms, bathrooms from hardwood flooring in the living area to vinyl options for the bathrooms.Christine knows our taste and provides wonderful suggestions on everything from flooring, carpet, to paint colors. We have recommended her to several friends and they have also been pleased with their experience working with her. She''s is fun to work with and concerned with delivering a product her customers will enjoy. Christine is talented, dedicated, insightful, and cares about her clients. We are loyal Finstad's customers because of the quality of service we receive working with Christine. We wouldn't shop anywhere else."

"I love my new carpet! Finstad's has a great selection of flooring options at very reasonable prices. Greg and the staff were very helpful; I will definitely use them again. The service and quality are exemplary from the beginning to the end. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing new flooring." 

— Mary

"Christine was awesome to work with. The Finstad's hard wood installers, Francis Poole and crew, did a great job. Project was on time. The carpet seems to be a really a good product, and was a good choice. However, the new grey maple hard wood flooring is a game-changer. It is flat out awesome. The Kentwood pre-finished flooring fits together really well. Very few bad pieces in a box. Big thumbs up on it." 

— Chris

"I purchased window treatments from Finstad's that are so great I even got a compliment on them from my ex-wife! I was told the laminate in my kitchen was indestructible, and it has been. And while it's been 3 years since Finstad's Carpet One installed my carpet, thanks to the moisture barrier cushion the animals couldn't and haven't destroyed it. I'm very happy with everything from Finstad's, and would recommend them to everyone." 

– Marty Lyon

"Finstad's Carpet One has been our go-to resource for decades as we remodeled our older home. Their variety of products makes remodeling a delight - who can say that very often? The staff there have treated us so well with advice, suggestions, options, and installation service par none. This remodel was no exception. From start to finish Janene offered ideas, websites we could research and delivered samples to our home. Her and Ed''s home visits were critical in getting exactly what we wanted. Newly retired, we hoped to find an excellent product at a value we could afford. Janene found our product, and Doug gave us a very good deal. We must mention the professional installers at Finstad''s. We''ve not had good luck with the "buy the product here and find your own installer" arrangement. Janene did all the managing of calendars and changes and the installers she provided were great. Todd and especially Tom were organized, careful and professional, prompt and, in the end, real artists turning great products into dreams come true. Many thanks. We'll be back of course." 

— The Harpers
