Why us of your wood floor project?

Avoid a under performing wood floor

Avoid an underperforming wood floor.  You don't want an easily scratched floor finish, uneven sheen, uneven stain, rough, bubbly finish, finish that pulls off when you stick tape to it, abnormal shrinkage or expansion, wavy surface, unappealing sanding marks, etc. The list goes on and on. An underperforming floor will cost you more time, money and headaches. When properly prepped, installed and finished. With proper care, your wood floors should last 15 - 20 years, before it needs another refinishing. A properly performing floor should last a century.

Choosing the right contractor

Choosing the right wood flooring contractor with the proper experience is a tough task. You have to go through several meetings and read through all the proposals presented. That's if, they are professional enough to provide you with a proper proposal. Do you really want to accept a proposal written on the back of a business card? Are your questions answered, does the proposal provide the right solution? What about warranties? Can you really trust a company that cannot provide a well written proposal to do a job correctly. Does the flooring contractor follow  building codes and industry standards for installation and finishing? Do they follow EPA and OSHA regulations? Can they provide a safe and healthy work environment? Can they provide you with the best performing wood floor?

It wasn't the lowest price I got, but the finished product was worth every penny. "

"Sye did a wonderful job bringing back our oak flooring.  The floors were pretty beat up from us and our dogs, but they like new now. The price was reasonable and Sye was very responsive and professional and completed the job on-time.  The areas where he refinished the flooring were also well cleaned up and dust-free once the work was complete.  We're very happy with the results and highly recommend G & S.
