Buffing hardwood floors is an affordable alternative to refinishing.
On this episode of Chat with the Experts, Harry Tishler of Tish Flooring shares his insight on flooring materials and explains how to get the right floor for your home.
Refinishing hardwood floors helps to preserve the wood and make the boards shine again.
"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 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.

Both men argued with me the crown molding was finished even though there was an obvious gap in a join. It was finally repaired when I refused to give them a check for the work, and the crown molding ended up being a good job.
Tub failed first inspection because it lacked any support. (it was installed with a partner present). Extremely poor job of bathroom double door installation & required a total reinstall, including new hardware, after they left. Most painting very sloppy with paint in some seams of new wood floor, and drips all over. Painting in living room, done by a sub contractor was much better. As requested, I purchased 5 gallons of paint and 5 gallons of tinted primer and only used about 1/4 of the tinted primer, which could not be returned. Bathroom ceiling and one wall in bathroom blistered. Some flooring planks are not totally flush as they should be and one plank near doorway is depressed. Kitchen and bathroom tile needs to be re-grouted. Damage to walls, kitchen cabinets,
What we chose for our new flooring turned out to be back ordered until initially December, then January, then early February. This was nobody's fault except the distributor (and a lack of action by the store). We were informed of the delivery date one week before delivery, and
He initially quoted 3-4 days to complete the job and finished in just under three full days. The old hardwood was glued to the concrete subfloor 'very' well and had to be chiseled out in small pieces. This was unexpected and added to the job timeline. As a side note, this is a very loud process, so if you live in a condo with neighbors, be considerate and give them a heads-up... Previously I lived in places where this level of noise would not be tolerated, so double check on this before going too far into the process. That said,
They moved the refrigerator and
Our concrete subfloor was not true and level in spots, which necessitated use of a special glue. This was an extra charge from the initial quote (about $1200 extra...) That was the only surprise of the job.
The type of wood flooring installed has an oil-wax coating applied after the whole floor is installed. Unknown to everyone, one coat was not sufficient, but
Overall I would not hesitate to recommend them. His quote was not the lowest, but certainly not the highest. I firmly believe you pay for what you get, and his results were worth every penny. Just finding a contractor that shows up on time, everyday, in South Florida is hard enough, and to get quality results is even harder to find.”
