Quality Wood Floors Team

Quality Wood Floors proudly brings you over 140 years of collective experience – We are excited to share that experience with you

Jesse Bauman | Owner | President of Sales

As a 3rd generation woodsman (cabinets to log cabins to floors), Jesse has been been in the flooring industry for 10 years

“I was born and raised in Phoenix Arizona. I grew up playing baseball and wrestling from when I was 5 years old until I turned 15, at which point I started making a series of poor life choices.   Once I hit rock bottom, I joined Teen Challenge of Arizona a faith-based organization for substance abuse. As I was coming to the end of the program, I started doing door to door fundraising, at which point I met the owner of Quality Wood Floors. He was very authentic and genuine in wanting to help me and you could see he had such a big heart and love for people which made him a key instrument in changing my life.  After finishing the program, I started working for a cabinet company that had to downgrade during 2009 due to the recession, at which point I joined the team at Quality Wood Floors being accustomed to wood, working in cabinetry. Within 5 years with the company I was promoted to Director of Sales and Operations. My story is a testament that Quality Wood Floors changes lives for the better. 

I have been Happily married since 2012 with 3 great kids. I enjoy camping, hunting, and spending time with my family.”

Paul Sweeten | Operations Manager

Paul brings you 5+ years Construction experience and 5 years warehouse management experience.

“I was born and raise in Northern Arizona and worked for my Dad’s landscaping company while in school. Once I was out of school I moved to the big city and worked general construction and welding until I became a Warehouse manager for a large Billboard company. I started a family and moved back to small town USA but the jobs there were not enough to support a family. I applied for many jobs in Phoenix and I choose Quality Wood Floors because of their Core Values and because they truly live out their mission statement. QWF is a team I wanted to be on.”
