2 weeks ago I can't believe how many times we've driven by this place and didn't even know it. Isn't that the way things happen? Until you are looking for a destination, you may not realize how close or where it is. Working in St Paul we have easily driven past Seestedt's a few hundred times going to work or Saints games. Anyhow we are considering remodeling our bathroom and based on my Yelpsearch, Seestedt's had some very solid reviews. Being that they are local and family owned are other key factors that we support. I had already done some research on their website to see what they had in stock. When we arrived we were greeted by Garrett and Clare. Garrett showed us to the area where they had their vinyl plank flooring. Seestedt's has carpet, vinyl plank and wood flooring and more. Garrett was very helpful answering our questions and explaining the benefits and different types of flooring we were looking for. We also learned that Seestedt's is in a historical building as we were shown the cut room where they used to cut the carpet decades ago. We were able to get a better idea of the colors we would like as this trip was more of information and check out the styles before we make our purchase. Seested's is also in the process of moving to a new location off of 94 and I believe White Bear Ave. They should be in their new location sometime between the end of this year or early 2019. Thanks to Garrett for his friendly and helpful information, we will be visiting again soon to either narrow our selections down or to purchase our flooring.

6 months ago Word-of-Mouth brought us to Seestedt's and the experience made us stay! Tina and her team assisted my husband and I on 3 separate rounds of selections (as we are choiceful purchasers), ultimately finding the correct carpets for our basement living/sleeping areas and upstairs closets. They also handled a small shipping issue with grace, communication, and concessions. Overall, I was very happy with their flexibility, expertise, and service. Hope to see this local business continue to thrive!
6 months ago Thank you so much for taking the time to review your experience. I was our pleasure to help you with the selections. I'm so happy that you found the perfect carpets for your spaces and that in the end it all turned out well. If you should ever have any questions regarding your new carpets, don't hesitate to call!

6 months ago We were very satisfied with our experience with Seestedt's. From the moment we walked into the store to the moment the installers left, we were treated superbly. This type of personal service and attention to detail is just not something you find very often anymore. Miriam was extremely knowledgeable about all of the options we considered for our carpet and padding choices, and was accommodating of all of our issues and concerns about the delivery and installation process. The installers were polite, experienced, efficient and neat. They cleaned up after themselves and left us with a gorgeous carpet, ready for us to return the furniture to the room without having to do another thing. We could not be more pleased. Thank you to the Seestedt's team.

9 months ago There are hundreds of samples on display which is amazing because it is really hard to shop for carpets online without being able to feel the material before you make a decision. Another big plus for me is that this is a locally owned business and the owners were actually in the store helping me make decisions.

11 months ago I wish I could give a really positive review. We have used Seestedt's many times with good results and recommended them to friends. HOWEVER, the one time we had issues (with engineered flooring) there were HUGE mistakes with the install and one with the product itself. Seestedts did not stand behind either the installer OR the product. We tried countless times to get them to pursue both with the manufacturer and with the independent installer they had recommended. Unless we called they did not pursue this issue even though they had seen and agreed that it was a terrible install and that they had not informed of a potential flaw in the material itself. It was never resolved. We were left with a huge amount of flooring with flaws all over it which became a difficult issue when we sold the house.. So use Seestedt's only if you plan on having no issues with the product as they will not stand behind it. They also do not stand behind the installer even if flawed materials were installed. They do not help you out if there are expensive problems. We are very disappointed and now use a competitor.
3 months ago Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns. I'm sorry that you feel that we did not help with your flooring expectations. Unfortunately, Brazilian Cherry floors can develop Cloudy White Spots over time. They are not a defect, but a natural occurence. Below is the statement from the Warranty guide put out by Kahrs: Cloudy white spots, a natural occurrence that sometimes develop after installation in the Brazilian Cherry and Doussie species, are excluded from our Guarantee. Exposure of all or portions of the installed flooring to direct sunlight may cause variations in color, and such variations in color are not covered by warranty. Here is the website that will take you to the warranty on Kahrs site. http://www.kahrs.com/en-US/consumer/installation-maintenance/maintenance-warranty/ I'm sorry that nothing could have been done, but there was really nothing wrong with the floor itself. We do try to strive for complete customer satisfaction, and are sorry that we could no do so here. We wish you the best of luck with your new home and thank you for your past business.

12 months ago I was initially impressed with Seestedt (except for the lack of parking) because of their large inventory and offer to take samples home, but I was disappointed with both the subsequent service and the costs. Notably, Seestedt's charged a shipping fee of close to $100 just to have flooring shipped to their store with other customer's orders (I assume others were charged as well), which I then had to pick up. Upon arrival, I received one call from Seestedt's notifying me the order was ready, which I just happened to miss. The shipment sat in the store for 2 weeks, with no further attempts to contact me, before I backtracked the miss call to their store. This, plus the fact that I subsequently found lower prices at other flooring stores (and no shipping fees at the other stores), leads me to recommend folks look elsewhere in the Twin Cites.
12 months ago Hello. Thank you for notifying us of your concerns. The product ordered has a shipping fee from the manufacturer. We do charge that to all clients since we in turn are charged it as well. I'm sorry that you have found the product else where after at lesser prices. This is prompting me to look into this with our distributor because we should be as competitive as others in the Twin Cities Metro. Thank you also for bring to my attention the concern of the follow up calls. I'll work on getting a better system in place moving forward so that this shall not happen again. I'm very sorry it happened to you. I hope in the end the floor is nice and that you and your family are enjoying it. Thank you! Tina Yeager Seestedt's

last year Seedstedt's recently put all new flooring on my lower level of my house. It turned out beautiful. All the workmen were very pleasant and did outstanding work. I love it! Tina in the office was very helpful in choosing what material I used. Everything was cleaned up I cannot be happier. Call them for carpeting and flooring needs. You won't be sorry.

"We were under a short timeline to purchase carpet and to have installed, our son was getting married in 1 week and needed carpet installed prior to out of town guest arriving.

2 years ago What a comedy of errors. They admitted to doing the job incorrectly, after I called them out. On the second try they damaged my wall, scratched up the paint on my baseboard and room divider and did a unacceptable job on installing the transition strip. They agreed to schedule someone to come out to "take care of the problem" but we have yet to hear from anyone after a week and a half. Absolutely, without question unacceptable and in professional.
2 years ago I'm sorry for your problems. I agree that we caused some issues for you at your home but do want to fix them. I have called and left messages to set up a repair. I will be sure to call again and make sure to get this on schedule. I'm not sure why I was unable to connect on with the phone call. As discussed, I will replace the trim and will not be charging you for any of the work done. I'm sorry that I was unable to get ahold of you. Please watch for the call shortly. Thank you.

2 years ago Outstanding service, product, price and installation. Called on a Tuesday afternoon-last week in May for carpet installed for our home. With graduations, etc, thought they would not accommodate my quick installation schedule. The following day, Paul was out to measure rooms, ordered carpet on Saturday Morning-Memorial Day weekend after Tina helped me select a carpet-even showing me price options with no up sell like I had with others in the past.... had it installed on the following Wednesday morning. Installers, two brothers did a great job and had two rooms and stairs-no visible seems, no marks on the newly painted walls and no damage to my trim like I have had using the big box guys. The price and service was so good, I am having them come out to install more rooms. I wholeheartedly recommend Seestedt's.
2 years ago Thank you Robert! It was a pleasure working with you and I am so happy that you had such a great experience! Thank you for such a great review, we really appreciate you taking the time to do so.

3 years ago Called Seestedt's for a quick carpet install. They not only got the job measured the next day, they also had the installation done the following week after a holiday weekend. Neighbors had told me others are out 4 weeks.. Tina helped me find a great carpet choice and pricing that worked great in my budget. She gave us options in pricing, quality and helped us coordinate wall colors. We have used them for years, and one thing never changes is their service. I would wholeheartedly recommend them for any projects.

3 years ago Seestedt's installed tile in our kitchen. The tile was uneven, grout lines inconsistent, and an all around poor job. So incredibly bad we had to have it demoed out. The owners falsely accused me of being unhappy with my choice. They have not one shred of proof of this, verbally, or more importantly in writing. If I was unhappy, why did I go to another store, and buy the same exact style of tile, which was installed flat, smooth, with consistent grout lines, it is beautiful. They refused to come with the tiler, and look at the poor job, yet again they falsely stated the tile was installed correctly. Pat, and Linda Yeager must have looked into their crystal ball, Sales person knew nothing about the product, and gave us misinformation. The owners refused to refund us half of the replacement cost, which was more than fair. Poor work, poor service, greedy owners. Can't wait for their going out of business sale.
2 years ago This is in regards to the written complaint by the homeowner. Seestedt's sold and installed tile in the customer's home in March, 2015. They had some installation-related concerns. We addressed their concerns and thought they were satisfied. They accepted an adjustment to their balance and paid. However, they still had a concern, and we scheduled an appointment to inspect the floor. They cancelled the appointment and we were unable to address their concern. We cannot fix something that we have not had an opportunity to view. The homeowner brought the complaint to the Better Business Bureau at which time we agreed to meet in arbitration to come to a solution. The homeowner declined. Next, the homeowner alerted the Office of the Minnesota Attorney General. Seestedt's responded to this as well. Seestedt's has been in business for over 95 years because we service our customers. However, if we are not given the opportunity as in this case, there is not much we can do.

3 years ago I can't speak to traditional installation but I bought a carpet remnant there and had them bind the edges into a rug and I couldn't be happier! This place is the GO-TO for remnants- the entire upper level probably had 300 remnants to look through and I found a 12x6 ft piece of carpet that would have retailed for $130 marked at $52! You may be able to get the binding services done cheaper elsewhere (they charge $2.25/linear foot there plus a service fee since they contract that work out) but I didn't want to deal with the hassle. Great friendly service and awesome selection. Highly recommend!

3 years ago Seestedt's just finished putting a new linoleum floor in my laundry room. The existing floor that was in there was a broken mess. They did an amazing job of dealing with the existing broken tiles and installing the new floor over it. The result is nothing less than astonishing. Perfect workmanship at a reasonable cost. I highly recommend this family business.

10 years ago I am not sure if this tip is considered common knowledge, but I've always heard that it's much cheaper to get carpet remnants bound off and made into area rugs than buying actual area rugs. I've never had to do it previously, but with our new pad we just had to get some floor coverings. This place absolutely ROCKS for carpet remnants. It is the holy grail for remnants. The store's at the corner of 6th and Wall, with a retro original sign that I appreciate graphically. The store itself is pretty grungy, with a quote-unquote showroom on the first floor and unheated rooms full of remnants upstairs. The experience reminds me a lot of a time when I was dragged along on a fake purse-buying expedition in NYC's Chinatown in my youth (never again). You can find remnants typically sized 6 or 7 feet by 10 or 12 feet, but lots of other sizes are available too. The store charges $2/linear foot to bind off the edges. Our rugs look amazing. We got several in very large sizes, in the low hundreds rather than the low thousands. Big plus - they also sell Marmoleum Click (laminate boards) as well as sheet. I absolutely love this surface; it's sustainable and natural, with a great foot feel. Okay, I'm getting weird now...
