"
was very responsive right from the beginning. He not only answered my questions, but explained the reasoning for why he did certain things" which helped me make more informed decisions. He's an honest guy and very straightforward. Him and his crew do great work, and I would recommend them to anyone looking to install or refinish floors. we've actually asked them to come back and put the same flooring down in one of our bedrooms. All in all, GREAT WORK!

and his crew sanded off the existing finish - some of which was really deep and painted. They made the floors like new and then finished" them to spec. Where there were parquet ribs that didn't look right, they pulled from inconspicuous areas (ie closets) and made those spots like new. These guys know their profession.

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.

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.

From the time of initial estimate (given to us immediately that evening of the first visit) through the end of the project,
Auburn Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
and
Auburn Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
were very friendly, punctual, professional, diligent, and extremely hardworking. Their communication throughout the project was excellent (usually proactive by them versus us having to call and ask). All work areas were kept clean and well maintained throughout the project. If anything unexpected arose (as can be expected in a fifty year old home), they were outstanding about outlining potential problems and offering solutions to resolve. We can't believe how wonderful the floors look!!!! They installed beautiful new hardwood and transitioned our old, lifeless, "honey" colored surface to a very rich looking, darker surface that my daughter desired. The difference is unbelievable and the floors are stunning!! . We feel so thankful that there are such fine, honest craftsmen out there who can match new wood with old and then refinish old floors to bring back their life and extend their service to future generations!!
We absolutely recommend their services and would definitely use them again when/if needed. Our experience was completely positive and satisfying.

are the best, period.
They took care of a very damage red oak floors in a rental property we have in Little Habana and the result were incredible!
We are so pleased with the results and professionalism of this company that we will not use any other company from now on.
Yes, they are not the cheapest ones, BUT, they are the best. They use the best products and they have the latest technology and machines to do the job with NO dust. We are truly impressed by the service. The floors look AMAZING!
They even gave us the cleaning product our tenants need to use in order to maintain the floors, and the soft pads for their furniture.
Thank you guys!

I had got three estimates,
Auburn Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
being the last. He always picks up the phone when you call. I had to reschedule the first estimate because I was really sick. He happily gave me another date the next week. Right when I met him I wanted to hire him. He is very knowledgeable about flooring and doesn't have a salesman feel to him. He hit every bullet point I was looking for (around the fireplace, molding, etc). When I got his estimate he was the lowest one. I called him to hire and he had my floors ordered, delivered, and installed within 2 weeks time. He has three guys who came and ripped up the carpet and installed the floor. They got here around 9am and were done with our 283 square foot room done by 3pm. This is the first time I have had flooring installed and didn't realize it would be so dusty. But, I know for next time. They guys were nice and worked efficiently with each other. I would definitely recommend them to install your brand new flooring.

We got estimates from 2 different companies and decided to go with

Auburn Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
always returned calls, answered questions and was on site two different occasions, during this week long process. Often contractor/projects run overtime,
Auburn Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
said that they would start on a Monday and finish by the end of the week and if necessary work on Saturday to finish. Our flooring was finished in 5 days and touch up painting was done the following Monday. No subcontractors!
Auburn Wood Flooring Experts Provider Name Locked
personally knows his crews and their expertise .Each crew started first thing in the morning and were some of the most professional, cleanest groups of workers that I have encountered with different housing projects. There were different crews every day, but each one introduced himself and answered any questions. and explained what they were going to do. Not only did they come on time, but they took the appropriate amount of time for lunch breaks. Sometimes workers leave for lunch and you wonder if they are ever coming back. I had been dreading this project due to the fact that I had heard about the dust and general disarray of moving everything out and clean up, but I was pleasantly surprised. Each crew cleaned up after they finished everyday. and although the floors were sanded, dust was kept to a minimal with their vacuum system. I would highly recommend

had come over to give estimate and gave an instant estimate after he measured all the rooms. I had invited 3 other contractors as well - just to be clear he was not the least nor the highest but based on our interaction with him we trusted that he will do a good job which he did.
All work done on time as expected. His men do the work and he keeps visiting to make sure everything is going fine.
