"FloorEstimate Pro is the best flooring layout software tool I have come across for floor estimating. Zero learning curve, and instant professional flooring diagram and estimates!"

Sheldon Fortenberry - Carpet Direct, Castle Rock, CO

"As a pro carpet estimator with over 20 years experience, I can attest to the speed and accuracy of the Floor Estimate Pro. The ability to visually describe flooring layout and room seaming of a job is a tremendous advantage when closing a sale. This software product is certainly worth its weight in gold."
