Ability Wood Flooring has been family owned and operated for three generations with a legacy that carries more than 65 years of experience and expertise. Ability was founded in 1950 in College Park, which is part of Orlando. Ability was one of the first companies providing refinishing and installation of solid hardwood flooring in surrounding homes at the time. Colin, first generation of the family, provided this service on the foundation of respecting others and delivering on his promises and continued his success for many decades.
When Colin retired in 1999, Ric, second generation of the family, became the CEO/President. Ric expanded Ability by being one of the first to sell and install prefinished engineered hardwood flooring in Orlando. With this move, Ric became a pioneer in the industry and is recognized as the Hardwood Flooring Expert by homeowners. Also, Orlando’s Custom Home Builders sought to have the newest and latest technology in their homes, so they turned to the “Expert” who would prove to be second to none.
In 2011, Ability brought on new services such as installation and the sale of stone, tile, carpet and all other floor coverings, making Ability a full service flooring Boutique. Ability Wood Flooring recognized the desires of homeowners wanting a one-stop service shop, while holding true to the deeply rooted family legacy that has been passed down from one generation to the next.
As a family company, Ric’s youngest son, Shane, was introduced to the flooring world very early; he has been gaining knowledge and serving his family’s business from a young age. He would assist wherever he could, whether he was grabbing tools, printing papers or helping the workmen on a project. He officially joined his father full time in 2016 to spearhead the Sales and Operations department at Ability. Having acquired a Bachelor’s degree from Stetson University in Family Business, our clients are very excited, stating that Shane has made the purchasing process a seamless and enjoyable experience. This is only one of the ways Shane is serving, in direct concordance with Ability Wood Flooring’s philosophy… “it’s not about the sale; it’s about the relationship”.
