Hardwood Flooring Reviews in Kensington


I purchased a deal for refinishing a certain amount of square footage. I knew my space was over that so I was not surprised at the additional cost at the time of signing the contract. The contract was for sanding, staining and then several coats of finish. They completed the work in just 4 days. There was very little dust from the sanding and we were able to walk on the floors (shoeless) each evening. Due to the flow of the house and the amount of furniture they split the work into two moving the furniture from one room to another taking two days on each room. It all was rather seemless and professional, and the guys that did the work were incredibly capable and nice. The floors look great, we are very happy.

2011 My rental agent handed this prior to my return from India. Nov 2011 Workers arrived on time and did work as planned. Some bubbling occurred as they returned and refinished as needed. Excellent job.

After 20+ years we needed to refinish the hardwood floors in our large living room, two bedrooms and the hall between them. There were many places where the finish was long gone and years of children, dogs and constant traffic had taken a toll. My request for an estimate got a prompt response.

, the owner, came to the house,measured all the areas in question and discussed the finish options. He also noted certain areas that needed repair. We agreed upon a very fair price which broke out the various charges for the finishing, installation and finishing of new shoe oak shoe moldings, and the cost of moving and re-placing our furniture. We scheduled the work and a two-man crew showed up exactly on time They did an excellent job of screening off adjacent areas that were not being refinished. They even screened off all of the heating and returns vents. The crew moved all of our furniture and other items out of the three rooms to be done and did so without any damage whatsoever. They worked almost non-stop and completed the initial sanding and sealing on the first day. It took an additional two days to complete the job, which included repairs we had wanted done. The crew were real craftsmen whose pride in their work was obvious. Throughout the entire job the crew was polite, neat, careful and diligent and were responsive to all of our questions and requests. When the floors were dry, the crew moved all of the furniture back where we wanted it, set up the beds and even helped re-hang artwork and mirrors. There is always some dust after this kind of work but the crew had done such a good job of cleaning up that the remaining dust was minimal. We are absolutely delighted with the finished floors! The color is an exact match to the adjoining rooms we did not have refinished and the floors look virtually new. We recommend A&G without reservation!

did good work on the refinishing. The workers were on time every morning and were nice and professional. They moved the furniture out of the rooms and back when they were finished. They removed an old Pergo floor from the kitchen and installed hardwood which matched up pretty well with the existing floors. It did take a bit longer than they originally estimated, but it wasn't a big deal. I stayed in the basement during the refinishing, which I would not do again, the fumes from the polyurethane are really strong. Overall very happy with their work.

We are pleased. Love the new flooring. We decided we picked the wrong shade of stain (too light) for the stairs, and we negotiated a change immediately after the staining process (before the hard finish was added). We had it darkened for a small additional charge, and the stairs now look very good.

and subcontractor was very prompt about making our requested change.

Estimating process was very efficient. We went with them because they were slightly lower in cost and were recommended by a contractor we know. Work was started on time but took almost twice as long to finish as was estimated(2 weeks vs.1 week). Sanding was far from dustless but they all claim to be dustless and few are. Staining was the big problem. Initially, they refused to mix stains to achieve the color we desired, even though another vendor did this successfully on another area of the house which we wanted to match. We gave them the formula and insisted they do it, which they did. The stain was not applied uniformly and many areas varied in color. They claimed the problem was variance in the wood. Again, another vendor did the same thing successfully. Also, they splashed stain on painted woodwork around the floor. When I complained about this, they told me to read the fine print in the contract which supposedly waived any responsibility for splashes in areas where there is no shoe molding. Finally, they finished the last application of varnish at 6:30 on Halloween. We had to send "trick or treaters" around to the side of the house because we had no access to the front door. All in all not very well done.

The estimate was 1/2 the price quoted by another Rockville-based company. Scheduling was easy, and the workers were prompt and friendly. They cleaned after themselves (even covered the inside of the closets with plastic sheets to limit the amount of dust). The floors look great!

The person who estimated the job was on time and informative. She presented the proposal in a way that I found helpful and explained that the water based varnishes (recommended by other companies) would not work well on wood glued to concrete. The men who did the work also were on time, worked efficiently, and did a beautiful job. They scheduled the job over 3 days with a day for finishes to cure. The floors were all gorgeous and remain that way after about 6 months wear. The one complaint I had was that the workmen did not wipe hand prints off door handles and wood work when they were staining. And the dust from floor-sanding gets everywhere. We had to clean all curtains (the only thing in the house at the time) and vacuum the walls! Refinishing floors before move-in is a great choice if at all possible.
