Culture & Values
Eric and the crew share a lifestyle and work ethic based on core Values. We revere kindness, integrity, and good old-fashioned hard work. We treat our clients the way we wish to be treated, and that makes our working relationship valuable.
5280 Floors, founded in 2011 by Eric See started like most companies, as a one-man show out of a garage. 5280 Floors continues to operate like a small business, treating every project with respect. The goal is continued growth, but to never lose focus on the most important factor, The Client.
Prior to starting 5280 Floors in Denver, Colorado, Eric was the National Sales Manager for Bona (The world leader in hardwood floor machines, abrasives and finishes). At Bona, Eric learned the hardwood contracting business, including best practices and how to properly use the highest quality products in the industry. Most importantly, Eric learned how to run 5280 Floors like a business, with processes and procedures to provide a consistent product and quality client experience.
5280 Floors exists to create a great place to work and to bring a higher level of professionalism to the hardwood flooring market in Denver.
Outside of work, Eric enjoys exploring Colorado with his wife and three kids, and coaching youth sports.
“When our team is happy, we are best able to keep clients happy throughout the entire 5280 Floors project experience. “ - Eric See
