WOW! Just WOW! I purchased a foreclosed home to live in and the hardwoods were in horrible shape. Portions missing and stained by pet urine.and a large portion down to the exposed bare wood. On all the projects I decided to get 3 quotes to make sure I was not getting taken.
was the 3rd quote and I knew they were going to be the highest. WRONG! I am happy to report that the estimator arrived slightly late but called first. Not a big deal at all. He proceeded to measure but I had to leave so he dropped by my work later with the quote. There must have been some mistake as it was $1000 lower than my others. I originally had to walk away from the home purchase as it just needed to much work but the savings allowed me to make another offer which was accepted.
I then dropped by the showroom to discuss and confirm and met the owner
. What a pleasant guy! With almost everything that needed to be done with this house it was nice to have someone with patience and experience to advise me.
took a looooooong time helping me to understand finish and color options. It was truly great and offered to loan me samples if necessary to help in making my final decision. Then came the money talk! UGH! As I have so many projects going on at once on this house cash flow organization was kind of critical. I really hate using credit cards but that was the only option at the time to get scheduled. Seems fair to me that when they commit the workers to a customer they expect to be paid for it.
then went above and beyond. He took my card information as a backup to protect himself but allowed me to replace that with a check the day the work started. A small thing maybe but it really demonstrated his commitment to keeping customers happy.
Scheduling!
! Was told he needed the house for a full week to do the job right. I had heard that it took a while but again i had no idea of what I was doing. Was told December 16th was the earliest I could get on the schedule. My heart sunk. I have to be out of my apartment by the end of the year and had hoped to spend Christmas in my new home. I explained this to
and told him my tentative schedule for painters HVAC replacement etc. He calmly got out his book and made some calls. He came up with a scheduling plan that allowed him to do the removal and first coat prior to the painters starting and then came back the week after they were done to finish the job. Absolute customer satisfaction here!
Dust! I have heard horror stories about the dust from refinishing.
told me it would look like I had not dusted for about a week and that it was not going to be bad. Everyone I told laughed at that and said that sanding them was a great dust redistribution method and plan on taking forever to get rid of it all. The day of the actual work they arrived early and set up a trailer in the front with a vacuum on it. It sounded like a small airport was in my front yard but it worked! The dust was kept to an absolute minimum and it impressed my painters and other contractors working so much that they vowed to use
next time. They then all shared their stories of dust redistribution from previous refinishing by others.
With the first coat down my awesome painting crew came back and knocked it out.
's folks came back like they said and finished when they said they would. One thing was the dishwasher was broken so I removed it the day they were doing the first coat. My new replacement had arrived and would not fit as the cabinets had been installed in the kitchen before the hardwood went down. What a nightmare. I called
and he said "I do not have the crew to pull up the boards to fit it in and stay on your schedule but if you pull them up and get it in there I will replace them." I was worried they would not match as the rest of the floor had the first coat on it but they did it no problem. I certainly understand the too busy to get to it on the schedule last minute. Most good contractors I know are busy and all have told me that Christmastime is when a lot of folks want to make improvements to their homes. In spite of a last minute dilemma It is done.
also stayed in touch with me the entire time about the process and advised me how to treat the floor and when I could be on it and how soon I could move things etc... My previous experiences with hardwood floors was with ones that had been in place for years. I did not want to do anything to mess these up. I sent a frantic text with questions and he responded immediately even though he was out with his family.
How does it look! GREAT FANTASTIC AWESOME! I will use them for carpeting my basement and replacing my counter top with a granite one down the road when I can afford it. Interesting note that I found out later
and I have several mutual friends and ALL OF THEM vouched for him and said I had the best man for the job. I believe that to be true.
If you don't know what you are doing or you know exactly what you want he fits the bill either way with professionalism and great pricing. I find it kind of funny as I signed up for this list because I needed a reliable roofing quote in a hurry and wound up saving $1000 from my other quotes by using
.

Got estimate from owner for work at a remodeling of a preschool, for the fencing and furniture building. He was reasonable, and had examples to show us. Gave us options for the fence and spent a lot of time talking with us about the job. Did great work on about 300 feet of wooden fencing including a car gate and a garden gate; also removed old cemented-in chain link from about 75 feet and replaced that. Furniture was next on the list, and he built about 12 6-foot shelfing units for the preschool, according to our specs. Nice job on those, and we are ordering more right now. At my own home, he installed an expensive storm door, and did a good job on that as well. That day, I asked him to look at the frame of a large window in my dining/kitchen area, which was beginning to rot or something with evidence of water staining on the wall beneath it. He did look, and after examination, with us watching, he found and then gave us the bad news: a previous contractor had botched the job not even three years ago, and had not sealed the exterior, so the frame was so bad I could put my finger through it. We ended up losing the window, the frame, the sheetrock inside, the siding outside, the outside framing, and a 3x5 section of the teak flooring PLUS the water had seeped down into the joists? supports? and those were pure mush. Both my husband and I watched the entire discovery process, and my husband has previous construction experience, so the damage was not imaginary!
had the entire job finished within a week. Luckily, I had some teak remaining from the previous contractor. Wasn't cheap, but wasn't out of line, either. I now have
preparing estimates for some considerable work at our home, plus the furniture for the preschool.

The whole job went very well. Personal service from start to finish. The only negative thing was some floor damage in the dining room when the fridge scratched the floor while being moved. They did make one attempt to repair the floor, but schedules were crossed. No second attempt was made. It would be a good idea to keep a close eye on the crew if furniture needs to be moved.

Overall the experience was great. I discussed my options and ideas with

and we arranged for a time to perform services. I am glad I had someone sand the floor as it is a big job requiring serious equipment. I applied an oil based finish to the floor instead of poly and enjoyed the opportunity.

Moved into a fixer where the floors needed refinishing.

came by and put down several stain choices I wanted to compare. Once I made my decision, he scheduled me for the next week before I moved in. I gave his crews the keys to the house which they locked up each evening. There were a few spots that needed a touch up, came back next day and did the touch up. Floors look great.
