A job we did this week was to refinish a living room floor that originally had carpet when this homeowner purchased the house. He was planning on replacing the carpet and discovered hardwood floor underneath. He then called us to refinish it. At the front door there was sheet vinyl with under layment stapled down. The staples were quite stubborn to pull out, which more than half of them snapped right off. We had to use vise-grips and end nippers to either pull them out or nip them. We were amazed how many staples were there just at the front door. We then sanded the floor which was a dark amber and then stained it to a rich dark walnut color.
We were asked to come repair a hardwood floor in the dining room due to water damage. When we were first notified it only affected one of the boards, when we got there it had affected about 5 floorboards.
We ended up cutting out the 5 boards and saw the extent of the damage. We had a dehumidifier placed near the area overnight to dry it out before placing new floor boards.
That evening at our shop we stained and finished them to match the existing floor. Next day we installed them.
We got the majority of one of the Balustrade jobs completed. We cut away the base round step and installed a new bottom step along with new floor boards since the previous step did not have floor boards underneath it. We stained and finished the new floor boards and installed the newly built box newel posts, rail and metal balusters.
This homeowner just moved into a newly built townhouse. When the refrigerator was delivered a lot of damage was done to the steps and the landing. We were called in by the insurance company to repair and refinish them.
The steps were also looking well worn and old.
We sanded all the treads, stained them with a mix of stains to match the other woodworking in the house and applied 3 coats of finish giving it a deeper, rich color.
This project we finished up today. The homeowners wanted to upgrade the balustrade to compliment the wooden flooring done by others. They loved the idea of the box newels and metal balusters. They also asked to cover an existing beam with reclaimed oak.
We also made for another customer, a beam for a mantle to match the he floors we did earlier.
We recently refinished hardwood floors in a house that was sixty some years old. The living room and hall were stained a dark brown where the two bedrooms were not. Needless to say, the floors were well worn and needed freshened up.
