Company Background

Hi! My name is Toby Merrill and I'm the company owner at Walk on Wood. My hardwood career started in 1995 when I was hired by a reputable flooring company where I received on-the-job training.  After 8 years, I was ready to start my own company and Walk on Wood was created in 2003.  Since then, I have been perfecting my trade through education and hands-on experience.  I joined the NWFA (National Hardwood Floor Association) to improve and expand my knowledge at my craft.  I not only attended, but also excelled at many of the classes.  This resulted in being given the opportunity to teach at a national level.  I am also an NWFA Certified Installer, an NWFA Certified Sand and Finisher, and a Bona Certified Craftsman.  I’m proud to have worked on some projects that have received national recognition. 


My company’s goal is to provide the highest quality floors at competitive prices. I’m dedicated to giving you the very best floor with a focus on durability, customer service and uniqueness.


We hope you enjoy our service and products as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
