"I'm not going to be too "wordy" - I just want to cut to the chase - If you are looking for quality, professional work with anything that has to do" with hardwood flooring - H & H is the company you want to do your work. I didn't put down the cost of service - because I believe each job has it's own unique "details", and don't want to discourage anyone from using them because of cost. (I always shop around, and love a good deal :)!) They were not the cheapest, not the most expensive. They were the BEST! and I am writing as a "repeat" customer.
knows more about flooring than anyone I have ever met (and my husband is a contractor - so I've met a lot!). You will NOT be disappointed. On top of QUALITY WORK,
is also very HONEST. He is willing to do the best he can to work with your schedule - even when delays occur (which they do - not just on the contractor's end - but on the customer's end....things happen that make scheduling difficult - but
was always very open with what other jobs he had pending, and worked closely with us to get in as soon as possible). If you contact him, and want to ask more specific questions - I am more than happy to have him give you my number as a reference. I believe that strongly in his work, and the results are AMAZING!!! I have my own business, and believe strongly in customer satisfaction. You will not be disappointed. He deserves the TOP ANGIE'S AWARD! Best, Annely Carver

"Everything was fine while we were discussing the price and the job until I made the downpayment and committed to their service. In particular, we were promised that" we will be able to see and discuss new stain color samples on the actual floor before the entire floor will be stained. We had a few places where the floor was uneven and were promised this will be fixed during the sanding process. Problems started the first day of the job. The floor has become more uneven than before after sanding. Uneven areas were not flattened out (as promised) and new ones appeared. Several doors were severely scratched/gouged during the sanding. We were shown a couple of stain colors options. However, when we decided we wanted to try more colors it was hard to get them do this as they were always in a hurry to leave. We finally chose a color and the floor was stained, however the stain turned out blotchy. As it was explained to me by another hard floor contractor this was a result of poor floor preparation (sanding). There were stain runs on the walls in several places. The first coat of finish was extremely uneven with lots of bubbles and runs. They assured us that this will be fixed by buffing and recoating. We had to postpone this last part of the job for a week because it already took longer than expected by that moment. After I repeatedly tried to reach them to finish the job they never got back to me. This at the end turned out for good as I hired another contractor to fix remaining problems and finish the job. Punctuality was a real problem of this contractor. Appointments were repeatedly missed by half a day or a day. Since we decided to move to a hotel for the time our floor was worked on, this resulted in extra money spent on the hotel. Overall, I would not recommend this contractor to anyone due to a very poor quality of their work, lack of professionalism and integrity.

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.

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.

was not in town when I was looking for floor work, but he sent his hardwood flooring subcontract company and they were professional and thorough in looking over the job and estimating the work. It was a big job involving most of a 2 story house, both refinishing floors and replacing vinyl with matching hardwood (oak.) A couple of floors did not need full refinishing, but did have some wear, and they proposed a light sanding and coat of varnish rather than full refinish down to bare wood. The work was done promptly, courteously and they finished on time. The new floors are beautiful and match the old floors. Because the job was so large, the work was done in stages to allow for moving furniture. At one point while moving furniture onto the new living room floor right by the front door, I put a serious scratch in the new finish. Very noticeable. They repaired it before they were done, and though it is still visible, it is much improved. They did not charge extra for the repair.
The surprise came with the floors that were lightly sanded and recoated. There was a noticeable, unsightly tendency to develop "rings" in the finish along seamlines. I was not warned about this possibility, and the man running the show seemed surprised to see this when I pointed it out and asked about it. He insinuated it was due to floor cleaners I had used in the past. HE SHOULD HAVE, AND I THINK DID KNOW THIS COULD HAPPEN. His crew member who did the actual application of the finish as the last step said "I was afraid of that," said it happened about 10% of the time and said there was nothing that could be done short of full refinishing. If it happens 10% of the time, the buyer should be told about it at the time of the estimate so an informed decision can be made. I think those particular floors look worse now than before they were finished.

The installation went well over the course of 3-4 days, the guys moved all the furniture, completely covered the kitchen area, pantry and wall pictures to prevent dust and dirt from covering those areas and moved everything back. In the end, the new floor is beautiful well done and affordable. Thank You

was great to work with and I would recommend him to any of my friends and family. He wasn't our cheapest estimate, but we went with him because of his responsiveness and knowledgeability. We had a hard time picking a stain color, but he was very patient and put down as many samples as we needed to make a decision. His team was on time and worked with us on a tight schedule. He even gave me advice on how to refinish the stair bannisters myself (I had decided to do that myself due to cost). Our floors really look brand new! We're very glad we decided to hire

I called
Appleton Hardwood Floor Companies Provider Name Locked
in June to schedule an estimate to refinish existing wood floor for an entire house, including stairs. The woman who answered was polite, took my information (name, number, description) and said they were backed up until the end of August. I was willing to wait because I've heard such good things. I never heard from them again. At the beginning of September I called to follow up. She obviously lost my information because she asked for my name, number, and description again. I explained to her three times I left all that with her two months ago. She said they're now backed up until the end of October. I expressed my frustration stating that I already waited two months, I don't feel I should be pushed to the back of the line a second time when I already requested services in June. She just apologized but didn't offer to have anyone come sooner or to do anything else. So services were never provided. Their quality may be great, but it seems their organization and willingness to accommodate the customer is lacking.
