When Mike Wichert was 11 years old, he started learning the trade of hardwood flooring from a neighbor. Often, Mike would tag along on job sites, as a helper. He would help with stocking trucks, equipment, layout of new hardwood flooring projects or pick up boards. Mike enjoyed the work and was eager to learn. As a teenager, Mike soon was working full time in the summers on hardwood flooring projects with his neighbor’s flooring company. He learned all aspects of the trade from residential to commercial flooring projects. In 1994, it was time for Mike to start his own business and he launched Wicks Wood Floors, Inc. The flooring business operated out of his home for a few years. The business grew fast. Soon he had 5 employees and rented a store front on Arcadian Avenue in Waukesha. The business grew to 10 employees practically overnight. In 2005 he purchased the current College Avenue property. The new shop provided office space and warehouse. Today, Wicks Wood Floors continues to be a first choice destination for all of your hardwood flooring needs. Mike Wichert and Wicks Wood Floors continue to innovate and provide the superior craftsmanship for all of your hardwood flooring for your needs.
“I just wanted to drop a note about your crew and the outstanding performance on our floor project over the last few days. They are to be commended for their politeness and professionalism. …Your company will be recommended by myself and my wife to anyone wanting this type of project.”
“Everything looks great. I would refer customers at a heartbeat with no reservations.”
“Mike – My stairs look beautiful and you have very excellent, hard-working employees. Thanks!”
“Dear Mr. Wichert
We recently had the wood floors of two rooms refinished, and I wanted to let you know how happy we are with the result and the entire process. From the scheduling with Carrie, to the actual sanding/stripping process and finishing, I was very impressed with the level of expertise, courtesy, cleanliness and efficiency.
Certainly the finished result will be visible to us for years to come, but just as important, I wanted to point out how satisfied I was with the people that were responsible for the work. Often times that gets overlooked, and I wanted to acknowledge each of their efforts. You have a great team, and I will be happy to share my experience with anyone who has flooring needs in the future.
“We have our beautiful wood floor in the living room from Wicks and show it off proudly always telling friends and family about your company.”
“Love Everything! Great Staff – Keep it up! Thanks”
“Beautiful work. Employees were fabulous!”
