Refinish Hardwood Floors - What a Joke!

Originally, I was going to refinish the hardwood flooring in my Carriage House by myself. However, after having rented a floor sander without results, I called this company. An old guy showed up on Sunday afternoon (Vinny) and he quoted me $1500 to sand, stain and refinish. Then 1/2 hr later, his son Sebastian called to tag on an additional $200 to the job citing the grey colour I wanted would require a water base polyurethane (aren't they all water based?). Anyway, having wanting to get this done and over with, I agreed to this unexpected surcharge.

Vinny told me I could paint the walls (that it was better to do it before the sanding so that I wouldn't have to worry about the floors since they were going to be sanded. He said I could leave the 1/4 round in place but that they would get stain on them.

They were to begin on Wednesday morning, 7-7:30am.

They showed up at 7:11am Wednesday. My husband let them into the carriage house and then he went back to bed. At 10am I went over to the Carriage House to see how things were doing - and noted their van was gone.

When I entered the apartment, I noticed they had done absolutely nothing except to tear down the plastic barrier I set up to keep dust out of the kitchen (ceramic floors). I was shocked! I called them up and my calls kept going to voice mail. I left a message for both men under the two phone numbers I had. They did not return my calls. In fact, they BLOCKED my number. My daughter then called using her phone and they called her right back. I got on the phone and asked them what happened? Why didn't they sand the floors?

Sebastian told me the 1/4 round was still in the 2 bedrooms and the place was painted. Plus there was plastic barriers up on the walls and doors and there was furniture (2 cabinets) in front of the stove). They didn't want the aggravation of 'damaging' the painted walls plus the barriers would have to be taken down and they couldn't access the stove plug.

I told him if they had communicated to me those issues then I would have corrected everything for them. But they said absolutely nothing and what the old man told me was incorrect. So, I was pretty upset that after having painted an entire apartment (ceilings, walls, doors & baseboards over the span of 2 days) they opted out of the job they were hired to do. Also, I now had paint all over my floors!!!

They were extremely unprofessional. They have poor communication skills and I would never, ever recommend them. I think it's important for others to know how this company treats their customers. This is absolutely unacceptable. They weren't doing me a favour. They were being hired to do a job and they accepted that job then disappeared without a word.

They also told me I was not allowed to write a review about them.

Buff and coat staircase

We hired Vinny through Kigigi without a reference. He was very professional explained what he was going to do. He did an excellent job of finishing our staircase. Our contractor job on our staircase was amateur at best. When I hired Vinny I requested a pro finish . That is exactly what he did. No waste of time excellent work. My wife and I are very happy with the job they did . These guys know there stuff . Would recommend them to anybody who is looking for the magazine photo finish to there staircase. Good to know there are people still out there who take pride in their work. Keep up the great work.

Outstanding job done for stairs!!

We hired Vinny on recommendation from one of our friends that raved about his work. We had him redo both our up and downstairs to a dark wood finish with white spindles and dark banister. We also had him refinish a banister area in our kitchen in the same colour scheme. We were even more happier with the outcome than we had ever imagined! It looked amazing and like a brand new staircase! The stairs were initially blonde wood that was outdated, scratched, stained and damaged. He came every morning, on time to start work, was so professional and just an absolute pleasure to work with. Vinny was flexible with our needs, as well as others he was working with. He finished all the work very quickly and he was very affordable. I cannot praise him enough for the outstanding job he did! We would not hesitate to recommend Vinny's Refinishing to others and would certainly use him again for any refinishing needs we may have in the future.

Amazing work done by Vinny

We hired Vinny to refinish our newly installed oak steps to Ebony. The stairs look amazing and couldn't be happier. He showed up on time and was just a pleasure to work with.

I would not hesitate to recommend Vinny to any of my friends or family.
