This company is top notch and I take every opportunity to recommend them to anyone I know who is thinking about installing hardwood floors. Jose, the owner / operator, is an experienced and professional tradesman and assisted me in every step of the process.
I recently purchased a house and decided to install hardwood throughout the main floor. Jose came in to perform a measurement and gave me a very competitive quote. He helped me select my wood from Timbertown and even hooked me up with a discount! His measurement was spot on as I was only left with half a box after the install was complete (no extra boxes = no wasted money).
Jose removed baseboards, detached appliances, made his own transitions, and custom stained our stair nosings and flush mount vents to match the wood color we selected.
Most importantly, Jose kept me in the loop every step of the way! I was provided with daily updates throughout the entire installation process and was immediately contacted whenever an issue arose (trust me, they happen). Timely communication was key as it meant that I was in complete control over time, cost, and quality every step of the way.
Here's a summary of the issues that we overcame under my direction:
1. The flush mount vents we purchased were thicker than our wood. This would cause them to stick out like a sore thumb. Jose took the vents to a mill to grind down to match the thickness of our wood.
2. The contractor that removed the tile in the kitchen left too much subfloor around the kitchen cabinets. Jose grinded down the subfloor enough to run the wood smoothly under the cabinets by 1/2 inch.
3. The floor in the den was not level due to the house shifting / settling. This caused a noticeable hump in the middle of the room. Jose grinded the floor down to eliminate the hump.
Bottom line is that my main floor looks amazing and I owe it all to Jose. I got a top notch wood and install at almost half the price that a local flooring design centre quoted me. Do not hesitate to contact this company to do your hardwood floors. You won't regret it!
