A Team Dedicated To Helping You Make The Right Decisions For your Home

Hi, I'm Michael

I was checking boxes instead of checking in with myself.

I left a position in the trades to obtain a degree in Biomedical Engineering from U of M. Once inside the walls of the great institution, I swore I would never touch another wood floor again. Afterall, ‘getting a college degree is the only way to become successful.’

If we pay attention, life has a way of guiding us. Not towards what we want, but what we need. In the final analysis of my academic success, publications, and tech startup adventures overseas, I had a profound realization:

My degree was for everyone else.

Here I am, five years into this pursuit that has catalyzed personal growth like I had never imagined. Initially, it was the perceived freedom. Then it was the personal connection. Now it is about modeling integrity, providing great service, passing along skills to the next generation, and building something bigger than myself.

I can’t wait to work with you!

Hi, I'm Christopher

From bodywork on vehicles, to landscaping, I’ve always enjoyed working with my hands. One winter while landscaping was slow, I hopped in my dad’s truck to learn the flooring trade. That season of change quickly turned into a career.

I enjoy each project. Like cars, there is always a new model or floor plan to work on. And like landscaping, you get to see the design come together each day.

Seeing the final product, and knowing it’s been done right, puts a smile on my face and hopefully my clients.

The Koby Craftsmen Mission

There are few things that impact the look and feel of your home as much as flooring. We are committed to guiding you through this process with not only aesthetics, but performance in mind.

We believe that communication is key in any project, and we will work closely with you throughout the process to make sure that your vision becomes a reality.

We also believe in quality craftsmanship, which is why we pursue education and training through our memberships with the National Wood Flooring Association and the Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Ann Arbor.

Finally, we believe in treating our customers with respect and integrity, and we will always operate with your best interests in mind. We want you to love the way your space makes you feel, and we want to walk away from the job knowing that it will last.

We could not be happier with Koby Craftsmen. We had them install wood flooring in our family room and office. They were extremely professional and personable. And they call you back! We did not want a transition piece between our tile and wood floor. Michael created a custom threshhold for us. Both Michael and Christopher are very conscientious. Our whole experience with them has been nothing but a pleasure. We are using them again for 2 more projects.

Michael and Christopher, of Koby Craftsman, recently replaced our existing hardwood floors and installed new hardwood floors. Michael’s approach and assistance in selecting the right floors and providing an honest and reasonable quote was greatly appreciated. Michael and Christopher’s quality of work, attention to detail, craftsmanship, timeliness, and cleanliness are second to none. We’ve recently had a number of home renovations completed by multiple contractors and Michael and Christopher stood out as the best. We could not be more happy with the work they did and would recommend them to anyone looking to replace their floors. You cannot go wrong with Koby Craftsman.

Koby Craftsmen came highly recommended and now we know, firsthand, why. Michael and Christopher installed LVP on our entire first floor (this involved removing carpet, hardwood, and linoleum). Every aspect of working with them was perfect, from obtaining information on their website, choosing flooring, receiving a very detailed proposal and work plan, their skills, knowledge, and experience in installing, the open and easy communication, their organization and professionalism, and their serious attention to detail. They wowed us -- the new flooring is amazing! In addition, they were so attentive, asking us our preferences, providing regular updates and information, and always cleaning up after each work day, Hands down, KC is the best contractor we have ever had.

Had a wonderful experience with Koby Craftsmen. It was happenstance I saw one of their vans around town and was considering hardwood flooring for my four bedrooms. I called the number on the van and set up a time for a quote within a week of the initial call. Their service was impeccable from start to finish. The quoting process was smooth and very professional. The pricing was reasonable. Koby Craftsmen started when they said they would and finished the project on time. My husband was there during the 5 day project and was extremely impressed with the progress along the way and how they cleaned up each day. Our home did not feel like a construction site. The end product is gorgeous. the floors are everything we wanted. I would highly recommend this family owned business. They do a wonderful job!

We build a screen room. Michael was knowledgeable and helped us decide on the best material to use for the flooring. He is honest and prices are fair. He was great to work with. We are very pleased with the final product.

Having been in the construction trades for over 40 years I was totally blown away by my flooring experience with Michael Kobylarek and his family business Koby Craftsmen.Quality at every turn. An obvious expert with hardwood flooring. He beautifully installed 'Wolf Creek Plank' from Chelsea Plank Flooring. From delivery of the product to the finished installation, everything was absolutely as we desired. The transitions between the slate entryway, the kitchen tile and the bedrooms and bathroom were perfect. Please feel free to use me as a reference. Could not be happier! Thanks again Michael.
