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.)

WE ONLY USE HIGH QUALITY LONG LASTING PRODUCTS

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 problem.

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.
