    Virgil and Carol - Peoria Customers

    First of all I can’t say enough on how beautiful our new floors are! The hardwood is beyond beautiful and I am sure we will enjoy it for years to come. The transition between the wood and the tile came out as anticipated.

    Now let me talk a bit about your install crews. I have never seen such a combination of people who not only extremely professional, but very detail oriented. Chris doesn't just do measurements, but gets involved with his team and works with them when necessary. Ryan and Sam worked here every day. Jarod, Scott and one more individual (I apologize that I forgot his name) spent quite a bit of time on the project and exhibited the same characteristics as Ryan and Sam. They were the most friendly, courteous, well organized people I have seen in a long time. I can't say enough positive about them. Ryan and Same were always here are ready to work on time and didn't leave until they felt they had completed what they had set out to do for the day. I witnessed work being done for a solid 8 hours, at least, because the crew didn't just split for lunch, it was staggered so progress was being made through the whole day.

    I have already recommended and complimented Millworks to friends and family and will continue to do so. I truly thing it makes a difference when the installers work for the company versus being contracted and your TEAM surely solidifies that thought.

    History

    Millworks opened its doors in 1998 at the Peoria location, but its true beginnings go back over 75 years to a sawmill in Pekin. Louis Pesgalia, grandfather of current owner, Rick Butler, became the owner of the sawmill quite literally by accident. His business was trucking and when another driver ran into his truck with no money to pay for repairs, he traded the sawmill for the truck.

    Thirty years later, Louis’ sons joined him in the business and Rick followed after graduating from college in 1981. He learned the business from the ground up and was responsible for the company’s first venture into the retail business in the mid-80’s-the Woodworkers Shop.

    Rick bought the company from his grandfather and uncles and continued to expand the retail and wholesale operations. While lumber and woodworking tools and supplies continued to be popular, demand for hardwood flooring, moulding and doors began to grow as the housing market expanded.

    That growth resulted in the first Millworks Store in Peoria. Since then, Millworks has become its own entity at the Pekin location as well. Hardwood flooring has always been the foundation of our offerings and Millworks has been a leader in bringing new products and new trends to the local market.

    Millworks philosophy is to provide “Start to Finish” service to our customers. Our designers will work with customers to guide them through the selection process. Because we offer hardwood flooring, engineered and laminate flooring, tile, doors, windows, moulding, stairparts, tin ceilings, mantels and more, we can provide a customer with all they need for a small or large renovation, remodel or new build-AND, we provide installation.

    Millworks prides itself on quality products, excellent customer service and years of knowledge and expertise in the hardwood business. These are priceless-but at Millworks we also believe that quality doesn’t have to cost more.
