Our History

Hans E. Hansen started the company in 1935. Hansen's was the first hardwood
flooring company in the Albany area, specializing in residential solid wood flooring.

In the 1950's Keith C. Hansen Sr., son of Hans Hansen, became the 2nd generation
to continue in the flooring business and built a tremendous following of customers,
along with training most of the current floor companies in the area today. Keith also
specialized in selling refinishing products.

In the late 1980's Kent J. Hansen, son of Keith, Sr. became what is now the 3rd
generation of flooring specialists. Kent strongly developed the installation division of
Hansen's Wood Flooring, which has now become the largest builder/residential
flooring company in the Capital District. Hansen's supplies hardwood and custom
designed flooring to some of the most prestigious home builders in the area.

In the new century, Hansen’s continues to grow- with the new showroom and design
center opening in the Spring of 2007. The showroom features room tableaus
featuring many popular wood flooring options in home like settings; as well as
hundreds of samples available to consider. The showroom also features a children’s
center and sitting area so you can take your time while considering your many

In addition to solid wood floors, Hansen’s also offers laminate and engineered floors.
