Doug Murray, founder, Princeton Hardwood

Princeton Hardwood was founded by Douglass G. Murray in 2000 in Cranford, New Jersey. Murray apprenticed with several of New Jersey’s most reputable flooring companies including Mannix Floors in Cranford, Paterson Sport Floors in Garwood, Harwood Floors Unlimited in South Amboy and Huggins in Westfield before starting his own company.

The company, which employs up to ten workers, provides free estimates and guarantees that once an estimate is given in writing there will be no cost overruns unless more work is requested by the client.

Princeton Hardwood buys its flooring from the top venders in the state and Murray personally inspects all wood before it is installed to make sure it is of the highest quality. Clients are offered the option of buying different grades of wood including Number 2, Number 1, Select/Better and Clear. Prices of wood vary according to their grade and species.

Princeton Hardwood lays all standard and exotic woods including Brazilian Cherry, Red and White Oak, Pine, Santos Mahogany, Wenge, and Bamboo. We also lay dance and aerobic floors with rubberized shock systems. Murray has laid out professional aerobic spaces including for Workout World in North Bergan and in Robbinsville.
