A local and independent family-run business since 2013, our mission has always been focused around doing better for our clients than any other hardwood flooring company.
Communication to craftsmanship; walking you through every part of the process, through picking the stain color to how to keep your floors maintained and looking beautiful; being on time, moving furniture, and cleaning up after ourselves – every step of the way you’ll experience a difference we take a lot of pride in.
Local & Community-Driven
Being home-grown and local, it’s important for us to give back to the community. We give $100 of our profits from each project to one local non-profit, selected by our client from a rotating list throughout the year. We’re committed to doing our part to keep Kansas City a wonderful place to live and work, and building a business we’re proud of and one that maybe our daughters would be proud enough to take over someday.

Quality Craftsmanship & Attention to Detail
We demand a near-perfect level of quality in the work we do – from checking the moisture level of the wood and making sure the temperature and climate of the home or business are what we need it to be; to lacing in between rooms and matching the finish used to fit your lifestyle. And unlike most hardwood flooring companies, we go through each strip and corner of a completed job to look for any spots we need to touch up or fill in.
Convenience & Speed
Anytime you have work done on your home or business, it can be a major inconvenience. We try our hardest to limit the disruption. Our carefully selected partners give us the capability to start and finish projects quicker. And you can rest assured that when your project is done, your home or business will be as clean as the day we got there.
Some Additional Things That Make Us Different

- To go along with our environmentally friendly products, we use paperless estimates, delivered via email to you before we even leave the bid.
- During the stain consultation, we present 20″ x 20″ stain samples – making it easier you to get a more accurate representation of what the stain colors will resemble with the rest of your surroundings.

- We use only the most experienced and professional crews on our projects.
- There will always be daily communication with project updates. This way, you know exactly what the status of your project is daily.
- At the end of each project, a representative from our team will come to your home or business and consult with you about future care for your new floors.
Travis worked on hardwood floors for years while earning his bachelor’s degree. After graduating, he started RippnFinish, and all of the business he earned, in the beginning, was from friends and family. Thankfully word got around, and he started getting busier and busier.
RippnFinish has gone through many changes over the years. Travis is constantly driven to keep making the company better and continue to deliver on his promises to clients. He has always been involved in Kansas City’s unique entrepreneurial community, where he has built lasting connections that have helped take the company to the next level.
Travis has a great business sense, but more importantly, he knows the trade. This knowledge helps him ensure our clients are getting the best floors possible, and he can step in at any time and provide a solution for almost anything that can happen. After eight years of trying to convince Allison to join the team full time, she finally did! Working together has been great! They collaborate well with each other, and can connect with the clients and provide an individual experience. Travis and Allison have two young daughters who keep them very busy outside of their flooring work!
Allison has always had some involvement with the business from the beginning. Back when it was a one-man show and Travis was doing all the work himself, Allison would jump in on the weekends and evenings and help where she could, whether that be helping carry in heavy equipment, to scraping corners, or taking care of the back office needs. During the ten years Allison worked in other large corporations in Kansas City, she feels those years prepared her for what it would take to dive into the family business full-time in February 2020. During that time, she learned how to work successfully with many different personalities, how to coordinate schedules and tasks with large groups of people, and earn the trust of those she worked with so they knew they were always in good hands.
Allison prides herself in providing excellent customer service and taking the time to get to know every client she works with. She also has no problem getting down and dirty and helping with anything the jobs may throw at her, including carrying bundles of wood or tear-outs! Allison feels that a good leader is someone who will never ask someone else to do a part of a job that she wouldn’t do herself. “It takes a whole team working succinctly to get our clients floors looking like new!” It has been a great experience working with her husband Travis too. They consider themselves best friends and are fortunate to now get to work together and raise a family of their own. There is never a dull moment at their house!
