We are one of the most trusted flooring sales and installation companies in Alberta.
Cutting Edge has been supplying and installing flooring in both commercial and residential applications for over two decades.
Our expertise and commitment to service has led to an ever-growing customer base in all areas of flooring sales, installation, and service. Incorporated in 1993, we now boast many high end installations in Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. With the addition of our showroom and warehouse and the incorporation of our sales and supply division in 2012, we are now a one-stop commercial flooring solution for any project. Our balance of expertise coming from the highest levels of sales, distribution, installation, consulting and technical services brings the best resources in the industry to the table. In 2014 we joined the Fuse Commercial Flooring Alliance, a commercial flooring networking group as the Edmonton/Northern Alberta representative company. This move has been instrumental to our growth in our market and our relationship with our suppliers.

He has sat on the Board of Directors for the Alberta Floor Covering Association and has served as Presiding Officer for the Provincial Apprenticeship Committee. He has also served on National Committees developing the exams and criteria for the national Red Seal program in Floor Covering. In 2012, he joined forces with Chris Sokalski to open the sales division of the company. In 2017 he was elected to the Board of Directors of the Fuse Commercial Flooring Alliance as the only Canadian board member.
