About Rick Bent Flooring in Hilton Head Island

Our Mission

Our Story

In 2001, Rick Bent Flooring brought its 20 years of flooring expertise to Hilton Head Island by opening its original 8,500 square foot location. The company had certainly been successful in Atlanta by providing the solution to multiple complex and detailed flooring needs such as: The World Congress Center, CNN, Turner Network, IBM Corporate Headquarters and The Fox Theater. Moving Rick Bent Flooring to Hilton Head was an opportunity for owner's Bob Benjamin and Rick Bent to fill the much needed role of providing superior flooring at a reasonable price. Fifteen years have gone by since the doors opened on Cardinal Road in Hilton Head and improvements have abounded. Because of their unique ability to provide high quality flooring in a cost effective manner, their store has doubled in size. Their staff has expanded to provide unparalleled product and flooring care support. While they may not be your only flooring choice, Rick Bent Flooring strives to continue to be the best choice.

" Rick Bent Flooring did an outstanding job with our home's hardwood floors & carpeting. The workers were on time (what a nice surprise) and diligent in their work. From the beginning to the end of the project the entire staff was professional, courteous, and honest. There is no substitute for these qualities & I would highly recommend this company to others - actually, I have already made the recommendations to a few friends. "

" My wife Kelly & I met Rick Bent, Robert Benjamin, and the staff at Rick Bent Flooring during the construction of our first home in 2003. We had Rick Bent Flooring supply us with various flooring products for our home & have been extremely satisfied. We are now building more homes & plan on having Rick Bent Flooring help us again. I have not only been a satisfied customer, but have suggested to many of my customers & friends to use Rick Bent Flooring for their needs.  "

" An ex-IBM chairman once said that execution is the best strategy. Your execution was flawless, from Sandy's expertise on sales front to the installation, sanding & finishing. Our job was a small one, but was the best construction project from my prospective, that i've ever had. Great people all around, great workmanship with a great final product! I only wish I had more floors to do!"

" When we recently renovated a home on the island, my husband & I were looking for a flooring company that would accommodate our unique needs: re-sanding & re-staining a hardwood that had seen better days, while also replacing carpets & installing all of the kitchen & bath travertines & tiles throughout our home. We were initially told by other vendors on the island that our project would take three companies to do the work; we were somewhat overwhelmed. Then we consulted Robbie Benjamin of Rick Bent & we couldn't be more pleased that they have managed to wrap all of our projects into one, under one roof with one team of experts. It was so easy to pick our selections from their convenient location. They had samples of every floor material imaginable & Sandy was more than willing to take the time to match everything to our fixtures and lighting. Robbie came to the site several times to painstakingly measure & make sure the installation was smooth. It made our daunting re-do so much simpler. If you are looking for the most professional floor experts on the island, with the most incredible selections, reasonable prices and expert installation, look no further. Rick Bent will go beyond your expectations to make your home the special place it should be."
