I'm looking for recommendations for a hardwood floor retailer/installer in the Greater Toronto Area.

We're closing on a house August 8, and the first thing we want to do after we close and before we move in is replace the existing laminate floors with hardwoods. About a month and a half ago we contacted a highly-recommended retailer (Darmaga Hardwoods in Richmond Hill) and they came and gave us an estimate, we left a deposit, etc. Fast forward to this week and they've lost my estimate, file and deposit and won't do the job. (I could happily go on and on about that but it's not really relevant.) We're closing in less than a month and now that Darmaga has screwed us I've got to line up another hardwood installer in a jiffy. Any first-hand recommendations? I'd also love suggestions for installers to avoid.
This won't be a terribly high-end job -- just getting oak floors, upstairs and down (no stairs, though, they'll remain carpeted). The house in on the west side of Toronto.
