"Worst experience with a contractor to date. And it continues to be bad news. Sadly, we hired this company after not only previously giving them A ratings, but also" then giving them a big job on our former home in Woodland Hills, to friends buying it. Not only did our friends have to threaten
, and ask us not to post this till they got their money back after he badly botched that job,
also created one of the worst experiences we have ever been through in our new home.
's son
, as Supervisor, and his crew began work here in late 2014. I knew, early on, when his son weirdly screamed at me for not being able to use my microwave, in front of all his workers, we could only go downhill. Sure enough, we did!
's son had to be permanently banned from our home, after
apologized profusely. His replacement,
, was worse. Each day was more unprofessional and dangerous than the prior day. Three, or more, competing sets of stereos blasting music with singing and screaming constantly from the men, use of our private bathrooms - despite being told which bathroom the (up to 8-10) men should use daily, cooking in my home - all done each day, without permission. Despite being told explicitly not do so, again, and again, and again. Regardless, we were determined to get through the worst of it, as
repeatedly apologized, and swore it would not happen again. And then it would happen again. We just could not believe it was this bad, as they had done such great work for us before. Finally, we had to simply get them out. It was no longer a question of if we could stand it any longer.
, as Supervisor, actively fought with me, and actively interfered with other contractors ability to work in our home, all while manipulating
. To say it was bad, would be like calling W.W.2 just a 'small battle'. With a kitchen and dining room left undone, we cut our losses and were forced to finish with another company. Our friends have now gotten all their money refunded, and so gave us the go ahead finally to post this review now. However, our costs are still being felt: Today I got the first shock at how badly ripped off we were when I had to purchase more flooring locally.
charged us $12 dollars per square foot for this job, and we stupidly trusted him. It is selling for $3 dollars per square foot in places online. We are now getting that same exact material for $6 dollars locally. To further add insult, now we discover our floors are poorly glued in many places, sound weirdly hollow and creak, but there is no recourse, as we could never ever allow
's crew to enter our home again to make the needed repairs. Please know, even with all of
's friendly demeanor, the end product was he profited by deeply price gouging us, and caused us problems we are still sorting out. Maybe the worst part is he damaged a relationship with long time friends who trusted us, and him. The money hurt also, but finding out how badly he lied to us and them? Unforgiveable.


"At first I thought the oak flooring could not be reworked due to some heavy spots and scratches.
told me he thought it could be done and" after 3 days of sanding and finishing they turned out well. The floors aren't perfect but they look good for floors that are 57 years old! Thanks

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.

There are so many things that can be done with old flooring. Here are some ways that it can be reused.

If you're looking for eco-friendly flooring, research the composition of the flooring, as well as the adhesives and glues.

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.

Hardwood Flooring reviews in Auburn


This review is long overdue, but after touring a house that's on the
Auburn Hardwood Floor Companies Provider Name Locked
with wood floors that were also done by
Auburn Hardwood Floor Companies Provider Name Locked
, I knew I had to do this. His work is great and his prices are reasonable.
We bought our current house last year (9/2014) and knew immediately we had to refinish the wood floors.
Auburn Hardwood Floor Companies Provider Name Locked
was local and came the following day to our house and gave us an estimate on the spot. We needed most of the rooms done except for the master bedroom and guest room. Because of the way the floors were laid he had to do the guest room, but was able to color match the wood floors to our master bedroom, and therefore skip it. He worked with our schedule and was able to finish the floors in 3 days.
Auburn Hardwood Floor Companies Provider Name Locked
noted that our floors had been refinished several times and that this would probably be the last time it could be refinished before we needed new wood floors to be laid. He's honest and doesn't cut corners. All in all, we are very pleased with how they turned out and have even referred them to one of our neighbors. Highly recommended.

came out & ripped up the carpet in 2 of the bedrooms & installed about 340 square feet of prefinished hickory that I had purchased from a flooring store. Afterwards, they installed some hickory shoe molding that they provided. Everything was done in 1 day & looks awesome.

Great. Easy to schedule. Came on time. Was proactive on re-setting loose/squeeky boards. Was able to remove significant staining of 50+ years and restoring the floor to look like new.
