WE MAKE SURE YOUR HOME DOESNT END UP IN A CLOUD OF DUST
The amount of dust is probably one of the biggest initial fears most of our customers
have. You’ve probably been more than a little worried about this as well.It’s a huge
problem that has plagued our industry for decades. I’m sure you’ve heard a horror
story or two about homeowners still cleaning dust up weeks after they had their floors
sanded. Just the thought of cleaning it all up makes you want to put off having your
floors sanded for another few months... if not indefinitely.Thankfully it doesn’t
have to be like that anymore. In the past few years, great advancements have been
made in the dust containment field. Testing out all of this new dustless equipment
became somewhat of a hobby for us.
THE PERSON QUOTING YOUR WORK WILL ALSO BE WORKING ON YOUR FLOORS
This is a great benefit for a couple of reasons. First off, you get to size me up
and see if you even want me to be working on your floors.Secondly, it cuts out any
misunderstandings that could come up if you’re dealing with an estimator and then
a separate employee on the actual job. With us it’s all me, me, me... in the good
sense.Thirdly, who wouldn’t want the owner of the company to be working on your floors?
It’s his company; he’s the one with his reputation on the line. He’s going to make
sure the jobs done right.
WE GIVE EXACT,FULLY ITEMISED PRICING THAT WILL NOT CHANCHE
I can’t stand it when you get a price for something and after it’s all finished they
tell you – “Oh, I forgot to add this”... “We spent extra time doing this so I have
to charge an extra...”When you get a written estimate from us, everything will be
itemized for you to decide the options you want. That’s the price you’ll pay, end
of story. Even if I made a mistake and I have to eat it, you won’t hear about it...
I promise.The only exception to this is when you decide you’d like to add additional
work that’s not included in the original estimate. In these situations, we’ll re-issue
an estimate and commence work once you’re happy with the additional price.)
What’s the use of spending all that time and money having your floors refinished
if they’re only going to last a few years. Cheap, low quality finish will wear out
very quickly with average traffic.As we talked about above, we’ve tested many types
of finish systems and we only offer ones that we know will look good years down the
road and can stand up to abuse.

Hardwood Flooring Types and the Manufacturing Process
The selection process in the wood flooring industry starts in the factory.Here, the
flooring gets divided in two main categories: engineered floors and solid floors.Engineered
floors had been designed specificaly for the condominium buildings. This type of
flooring combines the beauty of hardwood floors with an increased resistance to environmental
changes.Made out of three to five layers of wood, glued to each other in an overlapping
pattern, engineered flooring will shrink and expand less than regular hardwood floors.If
you are on the market for a stable wood floor, that could be installed even on top
of radiant heated subfloors selecting engineered flooring will solve most of your
Solid flooring – made out of one piece of hardwood, this type of plank has been around
for centuries.It consists mostly out of random length boards, with a thickness of
¾ ‘’ and widths varying from 2 ¼ ‘’ all the way to 12’’. Elegant, durable and versatile
hardwood flooring is, still, the most looked after type of flooring between buyers.
Hardwood Flooring Types by Finish
Now, that you've decided between solid and engineered, the next thing that comes
to mind is the finish.s it going to be unfinished or prefinished? What are the differences
between these two hardwood flooring types ? Let's see...Unfinished flooring, just
like the name suggests it, is wood flooring made out of raw, unfinished planks.This
type of flooring will require site finishing.It is cheaper than prefinished, but
the site finishing process is very labor intensive and time consuming. Unfinished
flooring used to be available in its solid form only. With the technological advances
made in the last few years this is not the case anymore.Now, unfinished wood floors
come in both forms, engineered and solid.if borders, inlays or other type of flooring
designs is what you’re looking for, unfinished flooring is the option to go for.
Prefinished flooring is a factory finished product that requires only installation,
without the need for site finishing. Prefinished wood flooring is less labor intensive,
but it requires more attention during the installation, in order to avoid damaging
the existing finish.
