Forney’s Hardwood Flooring Team

Forney, Texas bills itself as “A City Without Limits.” A bustling city on the eastern edge of the Metroplex, it is also a study in resilience. This remarkable mix of old and the new, has survived both economic downturns and tornados, and is flourishing. Today, the team at Texas Hardwood Flooring is regularly called to install floors in Forney’s homes and businesses.

Forney, Texas: A Revitalized Community

Once called Brooklyn, Texas, the town came to be in 1871; when the railroad came through several years later, the town move a few miles north to meet the line, and renamed itself Forney after a railroad official. At first a hard-drinking, brawling frontier settlement, by 1891 Forney had gained an opera house and two hotels, true signs of economic health and civilization. The first local wealth came from the highly coveted rot-resistant bois d’arc trees that were harvested in the area. Soon after, Forney became renowned for its nutritious and clean blackland prairie hay it shipped to cattle ranchers.  

The city really took off when cotton was introduced and by 1914 there were six cotton gins in operation along the rail line in Forney. It was then that the famous Dixie Overland Highway, the first southern coast-to-coast route, which connected Savannah, Georgia to Los Angeles, California, came through town, bringing automobile traffic and commerce. It was upgraded in the 1930’s, today, we know it as US Highway 80.

However, the city was especially hard-hit by the Depression and nearly faded from existence. Limping along for several decades, it had a small rebirth in the 1960’s. Then the explosive growth of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex hit Forney. In the 2000 census, the city held 6,000 people, it is around 20,000 today, with 40,000 in the immediate vicinity; the city is truly booming.  

Today Forney, Texas is officially known as “The Antique Capital of Texas,” according to the Texas State Legislature, as anyone traveling along Rte. 80 can tell.

The heart of the Forney community is the historic downtown area, with many renovated buildings and businesses and regular activities like the Farmer’s Market, the Turkey Trax Auto Show and “Christmas on Main.” In addition, the Forney Arts Council is extremely busy, hosting art shows, music programs, house concerts and other like events.

The Forney park system is extensive and terrific, featuring basketball, tennis and volleyball courts, soccer, baseball and softball complexes, and the new Spellman Amphitheater in Forney Community Park, an outdoor venue that has “Movies in the Park” and “Music in the Park” for up to 5,000 people on a regular basis.

Fantastic experience with the crew at Texas Hardwood Flooring.

Throughout the entire process, we were kept well informed by Bryan while ensuring the job was done on time and with perfection. Overall, a fantastic experience and i would highly recommend.read more
Jesse and his crew did a fabulous job refinishing our hardwood floors. They were fast, professional and did an excellent job for a very reasonable price. We looked at several different vendors before choosing Texas Hardwood Flooring and couldn't be more pleased with our choice. We would highly recommend them.read more
Brian R. & his team hit the mark right on the nail head. Pricing was competitive/better than most. As a retired architect I had some specifications for installation that he gladly accomplished. He was very patient during the entire remodel and the floor shows it.
contacted this company based on years in business, and lack of negative reviews. Bryan Robideaux was helpful and professional; demolition and installation teams were great (I was having some wood replaced and marble, and some wood just replaced, due to a plumbing leak). Scheduling was sometimes a challenge, but when they were to show up, they did and the work was excellent; no "come backs" of any kind.read more
