Floorwrights Install Wood Floor Pattern in Dining Room





Recently, we had hardwood flooring installed in our dining area.

Previous to the installation, we had carpeting with a linoleum and plywood base.

Our Floorwright, Jerry Adamsson, re-worked the base and installed a beautiful patterned floor. Solid-- no squeaks and perfectly level.

The sanding and finishing are exceptional. Color is exactly to our specifications.

Preparation and clean-up were excellent.

All of this work was done by a reliable,honest and dedicated professional.

Jerry will be doing some additional work in our home also.

We heartily recommend Jerry Adamsson for any hardwood floor work.

We will be telling our friends also.




Floorwright's Response

Thanks for your kind words and I look forward to refinishing the rest of the house.

The field of this wood floor pattern is quarter-sawn White Oak in a Marseilles design.

The dark pinstripe is American Walnut.

The frame of the room is clear grade Red Oak, which will match the rest of your house when refinished and hopefully,

look like nothing ever happened.

(The tearout we did leaves your new floor at the same height as your existing one.)

I should also mention for other readers that extra ShadeMaker Brand Stain was mixed and left for the next phase.

Floorwrights Install Wood Floor Pattern videos are available for viewing on The Wood Floor Conservancy's YouTube Channel.

You mentioned how flat and quiet your new floor is.

Especially of interest to you might be footage of all the sub floor prep that went into your floor to make it that way.

Congratulations on taking me up on the table pad idea.

I'm sure your first idea was like most people:

"let's pull the carpet in the dining room, put in a wood floor and get a nice area rug for under the table."



I think you'll find this wooden area rug to be much more washable!

(Not to mention a very nice improvement to your home's value, overall.)
