A Friend In the Business

A 1993 graduate of Fairfield University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance, Buddy Prete opened Ultimate Interiors in 1992 with the help of his father, Frank, a long time flooring business owner at the same site in Downtown Milford, CT. The installers that worked with Frank for so many years continue to work with Buddy, creating beautiful rooms at which their customers marvel (just check out the big binder of Thank You’s they have at their store! – a testament to the great experience people have working with Buddy and his team) In 1997 Buddy married Christie Rackiewicz – a fellow Fairfield University graduate and also a lifelong Milford resident – and joined the Milford Rotary Club. Together they have 2 children, Makenna and Matthew born in 2001 and 2004 respectively. They continue to support local organizations, namely the Milford, CT Rotary Club and the Milford, CT Education Foundation. They both have held Board of Directors positions for the charities they support.

Who is going to install the new floor?

Okay, you have taken the first step and decided on one of our quality flooring products for your home. You feel a little excited, a little nervous – and rightly so. You may have chosen the best, most beautiful, most durable flooring, but if the installation is sub-par, all that excellence is for naught. Well you can rest easy. Chris Hebert, our chief installation expert is an old hand with over 34 years on the job. Starting back in 1979 with Buddy’s father, Frank Prete, Chris learned how to install old school. The emphasis is on quality and attention to detail. From a solid sub-floor to smooth, clean transitions and mouldings, he will make sure that every step will be taken to ensure your new floor is installed the right way.
