An exceptional team

Our entire team is comprised of artisans, craftsmen and client care specialists who have a wealth of experience creating truly stunning wide plank floors, architectural doors, and treating our clients with the respect and care they deserve. Most of this dedicated team has been there from the beginning.

Jim Gleason, President: Jim got his start sub contracting from builders on the east end of long island. from there he went to work servicing designers, architects and builders in the molding and flooring sector, where he discovered his love for the rich beauty and endless design possibilities a wide plank floor offers. Soon after, with guidance and support from colleagues and friends, he opened his first wide plank flooring business which grew to be one of the most prestigious on Long Island.

With the knowledge gained from running a successful business and working hand-in-hand with some of the most respected names in the business, Jim sold his first company and opened Woodwrights Wide Plank Flooring and Architectural Doors with the goal of creating the finest flooring in the country and backing it up with a client care experience that is second to none.

Bill Van Dyke, shop foreman/director of production: with over 35 years of woodworking experience, Bill’s intimate knowledge of creating wood floors that stand the test of time is unrivaled. He oversees every aspect of floor creation—from milling to final sanding. and his talented hands touch every plank that we produce.

Mark Charvat, director of client services: Mark’s mission in life is to make every client a raving fan of Woodwrights Wide Plank Flooring. He is always accessible and will make sure that your experience with us is a positive one.

Our staff: rounding out our business is our incredibly talented team of craftsmen, client care professionals, drivers and support staff. It’s a small, highly focused group of professionals who have dedicated themselves to being the best at what they do.
