One significant challenge faced prior to moving into our home was the different coloured hardwood on the main floor (dark oak) and second floor including stairs (blonde oak). Wanting to continue a rich look with the dark oak flow throughout our home, I contacted Marian, owner of Allwood Canadian & European Flooring Ltd. for help. I've used Marian previously with excellent results. Marian was a god-send and was able to work within our tight timeline and budget prior to moving in. This was a big job (5 bedrooms, 8 closets, hall and two sets of stairs). With his industrial machine, European experience and incredible work ethic, Marian worked magic, stripping, staining and buffing all the blonde oak hardwood to match the dark oak on our main floor. Marian also buffed the floors in our Living Room, Dining Room and foyer, refreshing the existing floor and bringing it to life! Marian worked tirelessly and completed the entire job within 9 days. The result is extraordinary and seamless. Marian exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend Marian for floor refinishing, staining and buffing. He's the best!
