Repair of hardwood floor

I had retained this company twice before to repair worn hardwood flooring in my house. They were small repairs but the replacement flooring and stain matched very well with the old floor. He gave me some stain to keep should I need it in the future. Evangelist was a pleasure to work with and I was happy enough with the work I recommended him for a commercial contract.
This past spring I hired him back to repair a section of flooring that had not been repaired in the past. He did a great job of cutting out and repairing the sections. He used the same stain but when it came to finish the job it was clear he was in a hurry. He sensed the stain was going to be off and as much said so. My guess is the oak wood was a different colour. He stained it anyway. And then he came back to put the protective finish. I assured me it would all be fine. As they were putting on the finish I told him there were flecks of something on the floor. He said they would disappear. The didn't. It was lint from the roller which hardened. So half of the new floor has hard specks all over it. So in addition to the wrong stain I have to look at this every day. I texted him after the job was done but clearly he wasn't interested in fixing it. In fact he said foe. Few thousand dollars he would be happy to replace the flooring with brand new flooring. My solution. I moved some furniture and placed a runner over part or it. Not what I expected from someone who I worked with before.

Family, Dining, Study Hardwood

I had a completely different experience than the previous reviewer. My contractor first introduced me to Angelo to fix a really bad gauge my dog did to my hardwood floor at my previous home. We filled it ourselves but with the wrong filler colour and stain. Our inexperience left the repair only slightly better than the original damage. Angelo came to remove our varnish, matched the right floor colour and proceeded to paint in the veins to tie in the damaged portion with the rest of the floor. This is the next best option of repair to removing and replacing the one damaged plank. Unless I point it out, it is hard to see the damage now. I was thrilled with his work, even though it was a very minimal job for him since it literally only took him 15 minutes.

For my new home, I had Angelo replace all the first floor's carpet to hardwood. I have to match my oak stairs but I wanted a lighter shade than the ebony that is on the stairs. Angelo was very helpful in suggesting the best shade and wood type to get the look we want. From install, sand, stain to varnish, I have to say his workmanship is top notched. Throughout the entire process of dealing with him for my new house, I have to say Angelo was professional and very courteous. I've had the luck of my contractor bringing in good tradesmen to work on my new home, but Angelo is certainly one of my favourite person to deal with.

Sometimes I understand a company allows for other workers to work on the job, and the initial person to contact you is not the person who work on your home for you. Perhaps due to my contractor's relationship with Angelo, he was the one who worked on my home and oversee the other workers there. I think that is vitally important in the finish product and also the experience I got.

stairs

Angelo was recommended to me from my flooring guy to do my stairs and he came and did all the measurements. On the day someone else installed it and did a terrible job. One of the stairs had an actual crack in it! Had to get them to come back 3 times till the job was done as promised when originally quoted. I will not recommend this company.
