"The owner of
,
, was prompt, professional, and responsive to my communications, throughout the job. He Was extremely" fair and helpful in pricing and payment arrangements. His brother,
, who did most of the refinishing, was personable, professional, and he worked tirelessly each day until the job was completed. He took great pride and care in his work, with attention to detail. Great craftsmanship! I can't sing their praises enough. Would recommend them without reservation. May use them again in the future for refinishing the 2nd floor flat.

"not bad, but slight chatter
were detectable in the right light after the job was complete. I asked if there was a problem with his machine" and he told me it was because it's old floor and that there was nothing wrong with the machine. He did not offer any compensation.

Hardwood Flooring

Few home improvement choices add as much character and warmth — not to mention resale value — as hardwood flooring. But before hiring a flooring contractor to install or repair hardwood flooring, it’s important to know both its advantages and disadvantages.

Angie's Answers

From the wall street journal online:

"Etiquette and tipping experts agree that tipping a contractor and his employees isn't expected because contractors offer to do a job for you at a specific price. Any extra money they would want would be built into their bid. Also, it's a business relationship rather than one where they are performing a personal service for you like a waiter or a maid. But if the employees do extra jobs around the house, then experts say it is appropriate to tip a cash amount equivalent to the task; "tip gifts" such as cookies and drinks can count. "The key to tipping is whether or not it was outside the scope of what was normally expected," says Mark Brenner, author of "Tipping for Success!"

My opinion is that a little bit of courtesy (snacks, drinks, expression of appreciation etc.) goes a long way and upon completion of their work you feel compelled by a job well done to offer a little extra in the form of a tip - go for it, but do not feel obligated. 
?
I agree with your choice - this is about the only product that can realistically, for a large room, be taken out and cleaned up after a flood and reused, thouhg carpet can be if you strip it into smaller pieces to carry wet, AND you have somewhere to wash and dry it - that is usually the problem. However, bear in mind it still has to be done within about 2 days or mildew/mold will grow on it, and may or may not be totally removeable. My personal preferences - mostly because their products are consistent, the joints stay snapped together, and they are not overly soft (a problem with cheap vinyls) are Pergo, Tarkett, Armstrong. Whatever you buy, be sure it can come back apart - some plank products are not made with a self-adhering contact glue in the joints that prevent you from taking it apart again, and some brands their snap design, while maybe better at preventing joint separation, cannot feasibly be unsnapped without tearing or breaking it off. Also, be sure whatever brandname and product line you choose it 100% vinyl (other than the urethane surface protective layer) - many vinyl floor products have paper or fiber cores or other water-absorbing components. Remember that, on concrete, since it wicks soil moisture through it, you till need a 6 mil vapor barrier under the flooring and positively sealed all around the edges to avoid the risk of mold growing on the underside of the vinyl.
?
Agreed.  If you have existing cracking in porcelain you need to know the cause first.  I don't know of any reputable contractor that would dare install tile over existing tile.  Also, any manufacturer warranties for defects would be null due to improper installation.  Did the contractor offer this solution or did you ask for it?  The mear fact that he is agreeing to or offering it tells me you need to leave this guy for someone who knows what they are talking about before he does only half the job which will have to be redone in the near future, costing you more in the long run.

I get so many calls from customers that were talked into a "cheaper" way to do something only to find the work very sub-par.  The sad part is they are out the money they spent in the first place along with the additional amount I have to charge just to undo what the first contractor did before I can do it right.  This floor could end up costing you double what it should if it's not done right.

, the owner of
Albany Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
, did a great job on our floors. Scheduling a time to meet for the estimate was a bit difficult but mostly due to my work schedule. When we settled on a time, he was there promptly and provided an estimate very quickly. The price was the lowest I had found and he was very professional. I had hoped to have the floors done before into the new house Memorial Day weekend. Fortunately

's schedule was a bit flexible and he was able to squeeze in the project. Its normally 3-4 weeks before work can start but

was able to start in 3 days! He performed the work exactly as stated- 2 of sanding and 4 days of finish application. The results were fantastic! He was business-like and communicative throughout the process, letting me know the status of the floors and any issues that arose. I would whole-heartedly recommend

Owner sent 2 young men...owner never came back to check work done. They sanded the center of the floors before doing edges...left a lot of indents in my floors

came to measure and assess the floors on a Friday. He and his brother did (and do) all the work. They started on Monday and thought that he would be done by Wednesday. The floors required more work than he originally thought so it took a bit longer, but he kept me informed during the process. They came out great. I felt bad taking the Angie's list discount that they have because it took him longer than he thought it would! Great job

So, even though he did not do my floors I honestly would not even consider calling him again because of his lack of plain common courtesy and professionalism. There are too many other people out there that can and do what they say they are going to do.

is a true craftsman-his work is meticulous. He showed up on the date he promised and kept us up to date on the progress. The floors look gorgeous-we couldn't be happier.

They are professional and prompt. They stained my floor with several different shades to give me an idea of what it would look like and custom mixed a stain for me. After choosing the color, they re-sanded the floor and finished the project. They missed a small spot but returned within a day or two to fix the problem. I would definitely recommend this company.

If you are looking to get hardwood floors re-finished look no further. The Littlejohns are the best. Our house was built in 1929 with oak floors through out. They had been covered with carpet. We removed the carpet and readied the floors to save a little money.

came over two days after my initial contact, explained the work they would perform, measured and gave us an estimate (which was very fair). The job was scheduled for 3 weeks later.

and his brother Pasquali (
