The Yeager & Company’s signature red, white, and blue trucks are regularly seen throughout Tampa Bay. Experienced sales associates and contractors are driving to customers in need of the highest quality and largest selection of flooring; yet, Yeager & Company offer so much more than flooring expertise. Though the family-owned business is well known for their five-star reviews for flooring installation, the quality craftmanship doesn’t stop there.

Executive Vice-President Melanie Carter said, “We do more than just floors. We do kitchen and bathroom remodels as well.” 

Opened in 1944, this flourishing business, owned and operated by Jim Yeager and his wife Susan – Yeager & Company takes pride that their name is synonymous with quality craftsmanship, teamwork and designs to fit all size budgets.

“We do full remodels and are expanding into being able to do full construction home additions – this year, as well,” said Melanie.

Yeager & Company is recognized for their expert, friendly service, their integrity, exceptional craftsmanship, and superior products. 

As a certified state licensed general contractor, Yeager & Company provides every service you need for your remodeling project: cabinetry, doors, stairs, crown molding, baseboards and paint and they even provide popcorn ceiling removal and knockdown application for drywall finishing. Yeager also can work with insurance claims for water damage repair and assist with mold remediation. 

“As a general contractor, we can take care of all of the needs of a full-scale remodel,” she said.

The company is proud to take the stress of having to deal with many different vendors out of customers’ hands.

“We can do everything from getting the plumber in the home to do the cut and cap on the first day of  demolition, setting up dust control, all of the tile work, cabinetry , all the way to getting final touches scheduled for frameless shower glass,” said Melanie. “All services are scheduled in-house using a combination of both preferred subcontractors as well as employees to complete the job. We can handle the job from start to finish.”

Though Yeager & Company may not be the cheapest option in town, the quality of the work and the reputation that they’ve built over 75 years stands for itself.  When they work in a customer’s home, they will do the work right. 

Yeager and Company is a Better Business Bureau accredited business with an A+ rating and recipient of 2007-2018 Angie’s List Super Service Award.

“We go above and beyond, in many cases, of what the standard building code would require to be sure things are done as well as they can be considering  industry standards,” she said.

Customers get the satisfaction of working with a team that oversees the entire project and a company that stands behind the completed work. 

“You don’t have to be on the phone calling subcontractors. We handle all of that. The reputation that Jim has built over these many, many years is that when we come in and do a job, we do it right and we stand behind it. When it’s done, it’s a project that you are really proud of.”

Whether clients have plans and a design in mind or need assistance with coming up with the perfect kitchen or bathroom concept, Yeager & Company’s expert team will help you create the remodel of their dreams.

Melanie recommends when choosing a general contractor that you do your research and take time to read reviews. It’s a relationship that is ongoing so be sure it’s the right fit for you.

For customer convenience, free consultations can be scheduled on their website using an online calendar for Flooring and Remodeling appointments. 

Another reason Yeager & Company stands out from their competitors is their great number of repeat customers.  Yeager & Company often has customers who have work done on one home and when they move to another. 

“It makes us feel good that our customers don’t just use us one time, but use us on multiple projects,” she said. “People like that we’re family-run and the history that goes with that. The biggest thing that people take away from that is we’re not a fly-by-night company. We’ve lasted through really difficult times in the economy and every year, we’re consistently growing and expanding. Call or book your online appointment with us today.”
