Wood Flooring Specialists
We are based in Long beach, CA and service homes from San Diego to Los Angeles, and for the right project, we fly anywhere.
My name is Steve Martin and my guys are Jeff, Jose and Juan. I am the owner and operate with my guys on the project to ensure everything goes smoothly. As great as my guys are, I am the one with the most experience and I am the owner, so by nature, I care the most, taking every project personally. I have a creative knack for design and color which helps when you have to make those decisions which can be painful if not guided well and given appropriate samples. I am passionate in my approach and don't attempt any task without a careful consideration for perfection. I have a strong work ethic and I love what I do. Work is such a large part of one's life; one should enjoy it and be proud of it.
We are here to work with you; the homeowner, general contractor, interior designer, developer and architect, supporting you with our knowledge and informed guidance in selecting the proper flooring system design and developing motifs of appropriate proportion, scale and species composition, while incorporating the finest hand-selected material for your project.
There is a lot of different wood out there, many unique options for design and even more finishing options. You will be comforted, having us there with you.
"Steve and his team did an amazing job installing and finishing our beautiful walnut floors and staircase. Everything was done with a great degree of care and attention to detail. Additionally, Steve came up with ideas and concepts we would have never thought of. On the floor, he carefully sorted the boards and worked to make sure that the right amount of character landed in the right areas while mixing narrow and wide boards in a way that creates a warm continuous flow throughout the space. We have an unusual staircase that bends at 120⁰ in the middle. Steve came up with the concept of running the grain for all boards in the same direction through the bend in the "V" so that no seem was required. He machined the boards and cut the bullnose himself and the result is beautiful – clearly the work of a true craftsman. The staircase is now the centerpiece and most welcoming area of our home. We lived in our home while the job was in progress and extensive attention was paid in making sure that our living area stayed clean and that dust was kept to a minimum. The team was married to the job from beginning to end and they showed up on time and worked hard until the evening every week day until the job was done. We would happily recommend Steve and the Fusion Flooring team to our friends and anyone who wants a more beautiful home!"

"Attention to detail, on time scheduled completion and a magnificent finished product best describe Fusion Flooring. Steve's years of experience and dedication to his profession are what set him apart from the others, and make him our preferred flooring subcontractor."

"Steve Martin is a master craftsman. The Carlisle wide plank oak floors he installed in our new house in La Jolla, a mix of old growth and reclaimed timber, are a work of art. Steve is a perfectionist and achieves stunning results. I recommend him with great enthusiasm."
Steve is one of my "go-to guy" in Southern California! He is on the job himself every day, and is always available to the client for questions and concerns at any time. One of my favorite things about Steve is that he's not stuck in his ways. He has an open mind to new technology and products, and he combines new ideas with his experience and Old School wood working skills to get the job done. Fusion Flooring is a terrific choice for quality work in wood flooring!

Fantastic work done at very reasonable price. Steve was easy to work with and his team was courteous and hard working. I had my old oak wood floors in my tri-plex sanded then he dyed, stained and put a clear finish on. The finished color is more beautiful than I expected it could be. My apartment building is a condo, but the rules are similar to a co-op. Steve was willing to manage the details to ensure the project would be completed on time making sure to respect the rules. I will be recommending Fusion flooring to anyone who is looking for a responsible contractor at a reasonable price
Fusion flooring was there for us in the early stages of planning and worked with our designer to select the appropriate wood and recommend and apply a unique finish to follow our architectural theme. Steve found product that worked within our budget and installed complicated inlays, meticulously with no problems and within the parameters of our constantly evolving timeline. Steve was professional and everything went as it should. I look forward to future projects with Steve and his team.

Steve installed new oak flooring and tied it in to the existing floor for us. It was a difficult installation since he needed to match the existing flooring. Steve has a very competent professional approach. He always followed through with his commitments and was punctual at all times. He used a two -step staining process. First, he applied a coat of dye and followed with the stain. This resulted in a very deep and beautiful color. Steve is a perfectionist and the results show it. We are very pleased with the floor and we would not hesitate to use or recommend his services.
