Totta Hardwoods Story

Quality Craftsmanship and Family Focused

The Beginning

Totta Hardwoods was established in 2006 by Mike Totta. Shortly after in 2011, Mike’s brother Ben joined to make Totta Hardwood’s leadership a dynamic duo. What began as a way to support their families, quickly turned into a passion for woodworking and craftsmanship.

Totta Today

Now with a team of over a dozen employees, Totta Hardwoods is one of the top hardwood flooring companies in Kansas City and the surrounding areas. Mike manages the day-to-day operations of the business, while Ben oversees all of our fieldwork as they continue to develop apprentices into craftsmen.

Ben and Mike belong to different hardwood flooring organizations that allow them to continue developing their craft. Not only are they continuously learning new skills, but they also work to build and educate a network of future craftsmen within the hardwood flooring industry.

With a focus on building beautiful spaces designed for connection and a goal of developing and promoting craftsmanship in our trade, Totta Hardwood portrays common courtesy, uncommon craftsmanship, and cultivating connection through our hardwood flooring services.

  • My first review on anything: Totta Hardwoods refinished our floors and installed hardwood in 2 rooms. The professionalism from everyone we were in contact with is extremely refreshing. The installers Jordan and Damien were awesome. They showed up on time everyday, got to work, explained what they were doing and why. The project was delayed one day because they weren't happy with the way a section of the floor looked, I couldn't see a difference, but. I'm glad they did. If you want your floors to look the best, hire Totta -10 stars. Dennis

  • I had an excellent experience working with the Totta Hardwoods team to install a new white oak floor in my living room. The whole team was highly professional, customer-centric and committed to providing a very high level of service and craftsmanship. I plan to use them again for a separate project and would recommend them highly.

  • Mike and the Totta Team presented a clear plan with great options. Once my wife and I decided on what we wanted, the plan was detailed, executed on time, and our new floors are awesome - the entire main level of our home. We will enjoy their craftsmanship on our beautiful floor for years to come!

  • After reviewing our community Facebook group for hardwood floor companies, I noticed Totta Hardwoods name mentioned multiple times by different people. I went to their website and sent in an inquiry for pricing. I was contacted the next day to set up a survey appointment and a proposal was provided promptly afterwards. The approval was sent in on 11/17/21 and (by our request) the work was completed 1/28/22 as we did not want the project to happen during the holidays. Prior to our project starting, there was a designer and Totta representative that came to the house to review finish colors (by sanding and staining 4 samples on the existing floor). This allowed us several days to look at the samples with different lighting levels and make our decision. Once the project was underway, Alex (the installer) communicated his arrival time and met to locate water shut-off and the breaker panel as well as familiarize himself with the house. We decided to stay with family during our project and Alex communicated his progress regularly. Our project consisted of refinishing existing hardwoods as well as lacing in new hardwood flooring in areas previously covered by carpet (before and after photo of dining room included). For anyone considering a hardwood floor project, I would strongly recommend Totta. It is a family business and they make you feel like your business is important to them.

  • I had used Totta before for refinishing an existing wood floor and replacing carpeted areas in and adjacent to my kitchen remodel project. They did a fine job then and I looked forward to hiring them again, this time to replace another significant area consisting of the master suite, and the stairwell up to that floor. The work was done neatly and with great craft. The technicians were very particular and when there were choices to make they got me involved. I saw exactly what I had seen in the "flat" floor work they had done in the earlier project, but the stairwell reconstruction was novel and I had no idea how precise and particular they would be. The stairs and "balustrade" (a new word which includes the banister, and support balusters, now a part of my vocabulary) are beautiful, but as importantly, although they are solid oak, they are rock solid -- no squeaks, creaks, no give whatsoever. I enjoy things being nice, and things being solid, and I will appreciate living with them, but I cannot deny that I believe these improvements enhance the value of my 45 year old (and 45 year occupied) family home. So the payoff is admittedly aesthetic but eventually also, to a degree, financial.

  • I highly recommend Totta Hardwoods and I will use them for any future projects we have. Randy and his coworker are conscientious, polite, excellent with communication, and phenomenal craftsman. The owner, Mike, is also responsive, coscientious, and courteous. Our floor was originally installed by a different company in 2021 but needed to be refinished because of an issue we had with our dishwasher. In all honesty, I think my floor looks better than it did when it was originally installed. Thank you, Totta!

  • Totta Hardwoods always perform at a level of excellence. I have had multiple rooms where they have replaced carpet and put in beautiful hardwood flooring. In addition, I have had some existing hardwood floors sanded and refinished. All the work is beautiful.
