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.
