During our reno planning, we wanted something different and decided to go with a herringbone look. The thought of this idea and finding the right company to take on this challenge was frightening. Fortunately, my wife came across EZ Con Hardwood Flooring, so we decided to call them and get an estimate.
Right from the first time we met, Ross came across as a professional, knowledgeable and experienced and did not hesitate to answer our questions honestly and openly. As you know, the herringbone application process requires a great deal of experience and patience.
We initially discussed the idea of applying herringbone for the rooms adjacent to the foyer, considering that this will make the home look more appealing and lay traditional hardwood floors throughout the main floor. Ross suggested an alternate method and inquired if we would consider laying the herringbone look throughout the main floor. We liked the idea and moved forward.
We inquired where would be an ideal place to shop for herringbone flooring, and Ross suggested a few locations. Ross recommended one in Toronto and advised that we wouldn't be disappointed with the quality and manufacturing. We visited the spot, and immediately, we knew that we made the right choice. We even learned that the product we were buying, made, prepared and delivered from Italy. The process is something to consider when laid in your home. After all, you want to make sure that the chemicals used are not harmful. A lot of other countries use toxic chemicals. Even during our shopping experience, we called Ross, and he was able to make himself available to confirm our requirements to move forward.
Our project was all planned just before COVID started. Of course, we continued to push our project until the second lockdown lifted in late February 2021. We were planning all of the requirements to be ready once the lockdown lifted. Once the project started, the EZ Con team came in wearing their PPE and requested that they would be the only people on-site during the construction when they were to begin. I respected this request and appreciated our safety and theirs.
His team did all that they had promised and even more. The result is beautiful and very appealing. Our home increased in value, but the sure beauty is great to wake up to and appreciate the product's quality daily.
I will be sure to highly recommend EZ Con Hardwood Flooring to our friends and family.
Attached are only a few pics, but the main floor was completed, and it looks beautiful.
