Floorwright Restored Floors & Entry Way
We were all ready to put in new laminate flooring.
As we pulled our carpeting up in preparation for our remodel we found beautiful (but weathered) hardwood oak floor.
Needless to say, our plans changed.
We had heard very positive things about Jerry's work from more than one friend of ours,
so we called him in to look at the floors and give us an estimate.
We knew the entryway was going to be a challenge
since the previous owners poured concrete on top of the hardwood to lay down tiles.
Jerry gave us a very favorable estimate that we accepted.
He was very honest about the entryway saying he would do his best, but could not make any promises.
We appreciated his honesty.
End results -- our floors are beautiful, including our entryway!
We expected some blemish from the concrete, but there is none. There is no difference between this area and the rest of the floor.
Jerry does great work and we would highly recommend him!!Floorwright Response:Thank you for the work and the kind words.
When someone wants to refinish wood floors after a tile install, my concern is always the grout lines.
Grout, of course, is wet initially and porous for the life of the install
so a VERY stubborn pattern results.
In your case, however, I guess this old Floorwright was moreso.
Like a lot of folks, you had a treasure under that carpeting.
AND it's always way cheaper to refinish wood floors
than recover them, even with laminate,
which usually isn't cheap, at all.
(At least not the one you WANT, right?)
I am happy for you and look forward to the next phase.
I should also point out to the readership that the warm tone you see in the AFTER photo
was low VOC, fast dry, low smell. These kinds of products not only look good and last
but have extended my career.
