Refinished and replaced floors

Harold was great. He managed to salvage our almost 100 year old floors upstairs and replaced our main floor with new hardwoods. He refinished and stained the whole house to match. He did all of this on a tight timeline as we had guests coming to stay and needed it done by a certain date.

We love our new floors!

Floor refinishing

My son and his family, living in the USA, bought a fixer upper in East Toronto. My husband and I removed the broadloom on their first floor and found quarter cut oak floors that had been damaged by a poor refinishing job. After taking off broadloom, underlay, linoleum and 1940 newspapers stuck to the floor, we found painted tongue in groove pine on the second floor. Some of the people we had in to quote told us to cover the floors with laminate. Others said they would do it but were less than enthusiastic. Harold came in, gave us a competitive quote, and assured us that refinishing the floors was the best way to go. He showed great expertise on completing a very challenging project, was truly accommodating, and took great pride in his work. The results were fabulous. We never thought the floors would look so good! I would highly recommend Harold for any floor refinishing project. Thank you, Harold, for a job well done.

Sanding and refinishing oak stairs and floors

Harold re-finished our oak stairs and very old, very hard floors in May and June 2013.

What I like about Harold is that he talks you through everything he is going to do, and makes sure you are comfortable. He was also very accommodating to our schedule. In the end, he was able to bring new life into old floors, and we're very happy with the results.

floor/stairs sanding, refinishing & matte finish varethane

In April/2013 we hired Harold to sand & refinished the floors in our 2nd floor two bedrooms, the adjoining landing & stairs.
We could not be happier with the results!!!
Before Harold's expert work , all of the wood floors & stairs had different old finishes on them & they all were in pretty bad shape.
Now they look better than new & all match & flow from room to room!
Harold was very helpful & very patient in helping me choose the stain color. He took the extra time sanding the stair treads in order to level & take out all unevenly worn areas & they look amazing ! Harold is a true craftsman & cares about the end results!
Professional, knowledgeable, helpful, honest, always courteous & and just the nicest guy ever!!!!
We will be calling Harold to refinish the remaining floors on the main floor of our home & would highly recommend Harold!

Sanding and Refinishing

I had a disaster from booking another company. I called Harold and he sanded what seemed to be painted stain on the wood, and made my floors look beautiful. It was a big job- the floors had just been poorly (over)stained- and he not only made my floors look beautiful but was one of the nicest guys I have ever met.
After making my floors look great, he even called back to make sure I absolutely loved them, which I did!

Floor sanding, staining and coating

Paul and Harold came in to do our floors on very short notice so we could have them done before we moved in. They worked hard and were finished ahead of schedule and under budget! They were thorough, honest and did a great job bringing the floors in our 80+ year old house back to life.

We're very happy with the work they did and will hire The Floormen again in the future when we're ready to replace the ceramic tiles in our kitchen with hardwood.

Floor removal and new floor installation

Paul, Harold and their team did a terrific job on a challenging job. They encountered everything that an 80-year old home could throw at them in terms of surprises and dealt with it in a timely, cost-effective way all the while we were on vacation. Would absolutely recommend them.

sanding and refinishing 90 year old oak floor

The Floormen is an excellent company. We had asked them to repair and sand our 90 year oak floor, adding stain and 3 coats of polyurethane. To accommodate the schedules of other contractors, I had to ask Paul to move their starting date back several times, and Paul completely accommodated this with no problem. They also completed the project in the projected time frame.

They came on the agreed date and started the repairs. Some flooring had to be pulled, the worst area being where an old fireplace had been where the flooring was positioned 90% to the rest of the floor. What was really clever was their technique of interspacing old and new wood to cover the area. Obviously they had done this sort of thing many times and knew what they were doing.

They kept in constant touch, in one case about the stain we bought. They sent pictures to our remote location so we could approve it. The polyurethane, Polywhey, was again something we bought. They are aware of how to apply all the water based products and so nothing of the materials we supplied presented any problem at all.

The result was a great looking floor and we are very satisfied with the company. We would use them again anytime, and recommend them to anyone.
