About Trevor Hayden

Owner Lifetime Wood Floors

At age 11 Trevor Hayden began working for his uncles  doing installation, sanding and finishing for their newly-founded hardwood flooring business. Trevor had extreme drive and was able to attend Hastings College where he was awarded the President’s Scholarship and now serve on the advisory board. After earning my degree in Construction Technology, Trevor Hayden was so grateful he returned to Hastings two years later to donate a hardwood floor to the construction chapter.

I returned to work for the family company all the while thinking “there has to be a better way to do flooring.” This began my life-long endeavor in hardwood flooring. Since 1997, I have been continuing my education in the field and in 1999 I began installing designer, hardwood floors. My first showroom opened in 2001, and in 2005 I launched Floor Doctor. Because the market has been changing and moving to more pre-finished flooring, rather than sand and finish on-site flooring. In 2007, I began working for an international company selling and organizing deals for pre-finished floors.

I loved the flooring business, but I missed the joy of being hands on in the flooring process. For this reason, I made the choice in 2013 to start my company back up with a new name and vision:  Lifetime Hardwood Floors.  This company is able to function fully in sync with Floor Doctor because it allows me to not only provide the highest quality floors, but also to care for them throughout their life.  With my new vision, I knew I had to keep myself a step above the rest.  This is why I made a strategic partnership with Bona as a Certified Craftsman. With Lifetime Hardwood Floors, you can rest assured that you are receiving the highest quality product with a vast history of flooring knowledge.
