About Our Company!

In 1969, Don and Karen Lane relocated from Galax, VA to Richmond, VA and founded The Lay-Oak Company. Don began his flooring trade installing hardwood floors by day, and working the graveyard shift in manufacturing. His reputation for excellent installation grew his clientele until he was able to give up the manufacturing job and devote to his business full time.

At an early age, son Gary began working with his father and after his High School graduation, went to work full time for The Lay-Oak Co. In 1992, The Lay-Oak Company incorporated and expanded their services to offer both installation and finishing of quality wooden floors. Today Gary is the Vice President and supervisor in charge of both the installation and finishing departments.

In the last 35 years The Don Lane Lay-Oak Company, Inc. has built their reputation as the best people to call if you want a quality hardwood floor.

We stand by our slogan, “Our Quality Will Floor You”. It was true in 1969, true today and it will always be true tomorrow.
