I hired Johns company to repair and refinish my hardwood floors during a complete remodel of my home. He came out and took his time to properly assess the job and advised me of my options. I had been given 2 other estimates as I was told to get 3 and choose the best. All three were fairly close in price Eco forest floors was the only company that didn't ask for a large deposit upfront. They were the only company that told me they could get the boards the same size as my 70 year old floors. He told me upfront what the process would entail how long it would take and exactly what he would do. His employees were professional and courteous, and cleaned up after themselves every day. When renovating things can come up that can delay the project. I contacted John 4 times to postpone him and rather than get the hard line story he put me at ease and asked only that I give him a few days notice if I had any delays and he would work around my schedule. Eco-forest floors is simply the best hardwood refinisher period.
John and his team of awesome guys do a fantastic job! The customer service is top notch. The site was always clean when they were done and they were not happy unless I was happy. I would highly recommend this company.
I would strongly recommend this company. We have hardwood in all rooms upstairs except Kitchen and was debating to get them redone, or carpet. John told us the floors would look good and they do. Better than we hoped. Price was reasonable and the work was done ahead of schedule.
We called Eco Forest Flooring because our old hardwood floors were in bad shape. We were debating whether to have it replaced all together, but John advised us to get it refinished instead saying it will turn out beautifully. He was friendly and informative and had the gift of patience to answer our many questions. John was right, the end result is as beautifu as he had said, every grain in the wood stands out to be counted.
Thank you John and crew at Eco Forest Flooring.
The work was completed on time and on budget. I contacted John to have him look at the floors about a week after completion as I am concerned about many visible "lines" in the finish. He inspected the floors and assured me those marks were excess varnish and would disappear given the full time to cure, 30-60 days. John also offered to come and fix a couple scratches we incurred with moving furniture back in, so I'm waiting to see if the lines disappear soon for those other small repairs. I'm remaining positive for now but will reserve judgement depending on the outcome of those problem areas.
Yes for some clients the smell lasts for weeks however my feedback is that 99% of clients say the smell goes away in a few days. Which I mention on the every estimate. Also on every estimate I've ever done I always explain how everyone has a different level of sensitivity and telling them that my feed back is the best I can do. I've never ever said to anyone that yes smell is gone in a few days.
That's also why I offered Sharon and everyone I visit that if sensitive to smell then to go with water-base. Over the years I've even had the odd complaint about water-base. It's just we're all different as people. Plus the exact finish I use is in great detail on the estimate giving a chance to do further research.
Sharon had weeks to decide and then decided to go with oil base knowing that I told her that I could only tell her what my feedback is on the smell. Which is that 99% of clients say smell is gone after a few days.
After weeks of finishing Sharon's floor I get a call about some concerns she had with the floor. I'm a big believer in making all clients happy so almost immediately I went down to her house to have a look.
When I arrived she had little paper tent marks everywhere on the floor. So then her and I started looking at each one and asked her to point out the issue. And one after another she couldn't find them. Her excuse was she could see it in a certain light. But her and I together looked at every angle and couldn't find anything. Then one after another she agreed there was nothing. Also keep in mind this was a sunny bright day. If there were flaws then we'd able to see them for sure.
So it ended up being two or three very very minor applicator marks that are barely visible and normally accepted. I asked her why she waited so long to tell me. She said one of her friends came down and picked her floor apart. She said she hadn't even noticed them until her friend pointed them out.
Anyone can go to someone's home and pick stuff apart. Any decent person knows that floors have to looked as a whole. Specially decades old flooring. It's amazing what we can do with them.
At the end of the day any business that deals with hundreds and hundreds of clients will have the odd person that does this. I've been doing this for almost 20 years and have made thousands of clients super happy. :) To bad internet wasn't around then. I can't imagine how many more great reviews I would have.
Also if you think about it that every client that isn't happy will post negative comments. But I'd say maybe only 15% of happy clients post a review. I have a great reputation and will always do whatever I can do make clients happy. Naturally us as people including myself don't always give feedback on greatness. Whether it's a restaurant, doctor, service, house work, etc.
At the end of the day I will still do whatever I can do make her happy. Granted it can't always be done. Most companies likely wouldn't even go back.
I'm even going back for a free complimentary visit to fix scratches that happened during her moving furniture.
I love being happy and clients happiness is way important than mine.
I like how they helped us move some hard to move furniture in our home, They were very prompt with their work and made our floors like new again. They stand by there work and were able to fix any minor problems we had with the small issues on our base boards.
The only thing I didn't like, I have to say was cleaning up the mess on the walls and everywhere in the house from the sanding dust.
John was very fast at calling me back and coming over to give me an estimate on refinishing the hardwood floors in 3 bedrooms. He showed me a lot of photos of the work Eco Flooring had done in the past, very impressive results! John came in and refinished the floors while we were away, the crew was very honest and trustworthy. I strongly recommend this company for anyone who is thinking about having their floors refinished!
The reviews on this site for Eco Forest Flooring are positive, and that's exactly what I experienced when hiring them recently to refinish my dining room and kitchen floors. As an enthusiastic DIY type, I had started the refinishing project myself, but realized after a shoddy staining job that it was a project that called for the pros. John was polite and a good communicator, telling me how they would get my floors looking the way I wanted them to. They showed up to do the work exactly as promised, completed in the time expected, and the results were beautiful. Coworker Connor was also great, friendly, and most importantly skilled at what he does. Was a joy to watch him do his magic. Care was given to doing a professional job, including dust control and clean up. This is definately the company to hire in Winnipeg.
I had John come in to look at my hardwood floors that I had uncovered after being covered with carpet for almost 50 years. John did a fantastic job of cleaning up the old was that was still on the floors and then sanding and finishing the wood. It looks fantastic and the family was amazed at how good it turned out. John service was superb. He showed up when he said he would and did everything that was asked of him.
John was able to quote the job quickly and accurately, including a small repair job. Short turnaround between quote and work, which helped get the project done faster than originally expected. Good quality work overall. I will be using his company again!
Work was done well and in a timely manner. Attaching a photo for your enjoyment. Love the two shades. Adds character, etc.
About a year ago, I hired Eco Forest Flooring to refinish the floor in my bedrooms. I was completely pleased with the end results. The cost was as had been quoted - no extra costs added. The work was completed within the time frame and they showed up when they said they would which is very important to me. All in all, I would definitely recommend Eco Forest Flooring.
Eco Forest Flooring refinished our damaged and worn hardwood floors while we were on vacation. They repaired the damaged areas so that you cannot see where they were and the entire area gleamed like new. John was polite, professional and stayed right on budget. Refinishing hardwoods is a dusty business, so it is hard to know how to rate cleanliness... but everything else was excellent!
We are so happy with the work that was done on our hardwood floors. They are great people to work with and very reliable. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get their hardwood floors redone. Great job!
Just had the hardwood floors refinished and are extremely pleased with the results.
John had his crew were great to work with taking time to provide information, arriving to the home at scheduled times and completing the work within the timeline set. The floors are beautiful. We have already recommended John to others and would have no hesitation doing so again.
I can't say enough about Eco Forest Flooring. I would recommend this company to anyone wanting their hardwood floors refinished. John and this workers were courteous, thoughtful, and a pleasure to work with. They did my whole house (70 yr old floors) and I am now in the process of picking out hardwood for a return visit from John and his team to do a family room which is a added addition to my house, which when build, had carpet installed. Carpet is going and I look forward to Eco Forest returning and doing another fabulous job. You can't go wrong hiring this company.
I highly recommend Eco Forrest Flooring. They made my hardwood flooring look immaculate, were true to their quote, cleaned everything thoroughly once they were finished, and were professional in their work and conduct. Also, John's a really decent chap and a pleasure to deal with.
The work was done exactly as promised and ahead of schedule. The workers were reliable and did good quality work. The floors look great and in one room we were told by someone else that the floors needed replacing. John from Eco Forrest said he could refinish them which was far cheaper and indeed he did it and they look fantastic.
John, Casey, and Connor did a beautiful job of repairing and refinishing a particularly bad patch on my old hardwood floor, and of installing a vinyl floor in the basement. They were professional, courteous, and friendly, and started and finished within their given time frame. Their work is meticulous and they justifiably take pride in it. I am extremely pleased with the results and would highly recommend them.
Eco Forest flooring removed my carpet (which was old and stinky), uncovered and finished the hardwood floor below it. They also built transitions from my entryway and kitchen into the living room. The floor is beautiful. The finish is smooth. Because they are outstanding at listening to the customer and ensuring the customer is happy, any small concerns that came up as the work was done were resolved. The price was also very reasonable. I highly recommend them for hardwood flooring. I love my living room now!!!
I would strongly recommend Eco Forest Flooring regarding repairing / refinishing hardwood. They did a superb job, and were most accommodating, as I had to keep changing the start date, due to other renovations. John was always very pleasant and did not hesitate to fluctuate to suit my needs. The outcome was better than I expected - great job!!
John and his team at Eco Forest Flooring did a fantastic job refinishing our parquet flooring. We were under a bit of a time crunch wiht movers arriving and John was very understanding and did everything he could to speed the job up without any reduction to quality of work. The finished product was excellent but what really stood out for me was John. If I had a question, and I had many, John would quickly respond day or night. This level of customer service was well appreciated. I would not hesitate to use Eco Forest again and would quickly recommend them.
I would definitely recommend Eco Forest Flooring. They were on time and finished the job within 5 days. Our floors look amazing! We appreciate the hard work from the guys, including the carpet removal.
We were very satisfied with the work of Eco Forest Flooring. They were honest and professional and the finished job was absolutely beautiful. I would most certainly recommend this company for any of your hardwood flooring restoration needs.
They did an amazing job, our floors look great and they finished exactly when they said they were going to. Very accommodating of our pets, and they did a great job cleaning up as well.
We had John and his staff come and refinish our hardwood floors in our kitchen. The orginial kitchen floors from 1927 had been covered up when we're renovating the kitchen. John said that the floors were in great shape. When John refinished the floors they matched to the original hardwood floors in the living room. He is a miracle worker. When our friends came in the house they just couldn't believe it. He made sure his staff were doing everything correctly and after came in to check on everything. I have already recommended him. The photos are before and after the floors were done. There are so many pictures that I can't put them on.
John and his staff did a great job. We had damage from a leaking dishwasher. They installed new kitchen flooring and laced in hardwood in two other rooms, a skill not all companies have. They were very professional and we would not hesitate to recommend them.
John and his assistant, Connor, did an excellent job of refinishing my 50 year old, somewhat abused, hardwood floors. The pride they take in their work is very evident given the "just like new" look they achieved. I have absolutely no hesitation is recommending the folks at Eco Forest Flooring. I am extremely satisfied with the work they did.
Eco Forest Flooring (John Blatz) knows hardwood and wood floors inside out and backwards. Very skilled and talented man. He cares and understands a great deal about hard wood. It shows. His work is brilliant. Eco Forest can refinish just about anything. He brought the 50 year old beaten up floors in the house we are renovating back from the dead. They are gorgeous. His work totally transformed the house. Blatz is reliable. Totally organized. His quotes are exact and broken down very precisely. As contractors go John Blatz is a gem.
We recently used Eco Forest Flooring to refinish the hardwood floor in a condo my mother was selling. We choose them after having several other contractors out to provide a quote. They were able to accommodate our time frames and made sure to be there when we needed them to be. They were very prompt and the floor turned out better than we could have hope for. The floor looks better than it did brand new.
John and his crew were polite and all the work was performed in the pre-arranged designated time frame. The workmanship and quality was outstanding. Eco Forest Flooring take pride in there work. I would not hesitate to recommend them for all your flooring needs.
Very happy with the great job John and Connor did for us last month. Flooring and stairs look fantastic. They removed very old carpeting in rec room and lower bedroom and replaced with a great modern laminate. John and Connor were a pleasure to work with and very conscientious and professional. They even assisted me with new door replacement to lower bedroom, bath and laundry room as well as new sliding closet door in bedroom. Super job guys!! I highly recommend this company to all. Prices were great too and top quality product and workmanship. Wendy H. Charleswood area.
I had Eco Forest Flooring refinish my hardwood floors in my living room and dinning room. John and Connor were great. They showed up on time very day. Did what they could to make my house livable since I had to stay there through the work. But best of all my floors look great!! I would highly recommend this company as they do great work. I will call them agin when it's time to refinish the rest if the house. Great job!!!
Mr. John, and his partner Mr. Connor, did an amazing job of installing Laminate flooring and Vinyl Flooring. The Floors and Stairs look amazing. All our guests appreciated the workmanship.The Vinyl Flooring was done on a very short notice. Everything was done in timely manner and in the budget. I would recommend him to everyone.
John did a very good job on my floor and baseboard installation. He is very honest and provided options in terms of products and pricing. I chose to get my flooring and trim from a big box store and he was very helpful with transporting this to my residence for install. Even when the store made a couple of errors with my order, which delayed the install, he was very understanding and patient when having to make several trips back to my place to finish and to make sure everything was completed. Thanks for doing a great job, John!
Dealing with John was a great experience from the start of the quote till the end of the job. Was always punctual and kept in good communication during the job.
The skill that he and his Co Worker Connor have are second to none and have a great attention to detail. The quality of the stain and finish they use is top quality. My floors have been finished now for approx 3 weeks and Im still in awe of how great they made them look.
John and his helper Connor did an excellent job on my laminate flooring and baseboard installation. They removed and disposed of the old carpeting and baseboards creating as little mess as possible. They moved furniture around when necessary. I am very pleased with the quality and workmanship of this reno.
I contacted John to refinish the 2 bedrooms in my house. He was very knowledgeable, , professional & extremely polite. He fully explained the various options for refinishing. He & his Assistant Conner did a great job! They were on time, and did a beautiful job of the floors. I would highly recommend them & I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
We hired John to do our hardwood floors, and we were not disappointed. It has taken me a while to write this review, but he did our installation last year. First off John was super patient, I am not trusting by nature and after hearing many horror stories, I was nervous. He was super patient, answered all my questions and gave great suggestions. Our installation looked amazing and all of our transitions were made by him, looked much better than what the pre fabs look like. I can say its been about a year and there has been no issues. He also did a tile install at our back door landing which was also impeccable. I have included some pics, one is unfortunately quite dark. I am very appreciative of John and his staff for their patience with me and the family, and even the dogs and cats!! I have recommended Eco Forest Flooring to several people and my sister also used them to do baseboard install and she also was very satisfied.
It was a real pleasure to actually deal with a company that delivers more than it promised. John was extremely knowledgeable - an expert at his craft, didn't try to oversell, provided us with plenty of options, and once we decided what type of flooring, looked for the lowest possible price from his vendors. He is a master craftsman who pays takes great pride in his work (extremely clean and organized when working) and pays close attention to even the smallest of details. He was on time, under budget, professional, friendly and most importantly, honest and trustworthy. We are planning to have him back and we would highly recommend him and his company.
This is the 2nd time we called John.
The first time we had him install our hardwood flooring as seen in my previous review. We were happy with his work so we called him back to do the baseboards. John and his helper were efficient at getting the job done. They were easy to deal with and the price quoted was the price we paid. The quality of workmanship was excellent. Great job John
We had John from Eco Forest flooring install hardwood in 3 bedrooms, hallway, family room and dining room.
The work was done done starting Tuesday July 23. The work was completed in 4 days. We were under a very tight time lime. However John did complete the Job in the time specified plus he also nailed down our sub floor which took extra time for him to do as well as install and stain our flush mount vents and make and install the transition molding pieces.
We also had John install vinyl tile in our front entrance.
Both Hardwood and tile look amazing. The flooring will look even better once we get the baseboards re installed.
John also did extra work such as sanding down the doors so they close perfectly.
Myself and my wife are 100% satisfied with the quality of his work, as well as keeping the project under budget as well as cleaning up after himself.
Whenever I had a question John phoned back in minutes as opposed to days, John first priority was in pleasing the customer which is uncommon in most companies.
We do have a bathroom Reno coming up in the near future, we will be giving John a call.
Thumbs up, John
Warren and Delores
I previously gave this company a very high rating for the wonderful work he did. Unfortunately he left us high and dry. John was to return to our home to finish off our bedroom closet door frames and install drywall in our garage. That was May 24th. My husband left messages of concern for John on two separate occasions. To this day we have not heard a word, yet I see he has done work for others. We never had any issues with John and why he would abandon us is beyond understanding, especially when we had discussed work to be done in our kitchen and bath and said we would be having him do this...not small jobs! All I can say is that this is not businesslike nor even courteous. If you don't want to do a job be honest up front.
I apologize there must of been a misunderstanding. My company specializes in flooring. Mary Ann and Morley are very happy with the installation of hardwood. My company works with a group of trades. When clients want other work done that we don't specialize in we refer them to other trades that do. Eco Forest Flooring (it's right in the name) does not do drywall. Unfortunately after I pass the information on, it's beyond my control. No was abandoned. I completed what was given and agreed upon as a quote. Not once did drywall make on the estimate because we don't do drywall. If anyone wants more information please contact me and I'd be more than happy to discuss this review further.
Thanks and I wish Maryann and Morley all the best.
It took me a few years to find the right person and company to get this job completed. We needed to live in the lower level with 2 dogs while the upstairs was done. Following a search and reading the reviews for this company and John, I decided to give John a try. I realized very quickly that;John is the reason for this company's quality outcomes and excellent service. John is a personable individual who consistently goes above and beyond the parameters of the job to ensure the customer is happy and content with the outcome. John arrives on time and communicates needed information during the finishing process. I have absolutely no reservation recommending John and Eco Forest Flooring. The floors look great and much better than anticipated. In addition, like a bonus, John was very kind and patient with the dogs who certainly liked him!!
Jon is a courteous, meticulous professional who is a true craftsman. He arrives punctually, cleans up every speck every day before leaving - even sweeping the garage floor. His work is beautiful and without flaw. He installed our new hardwood - even creating his own transition pieces. He installed new trim throughout our upstairs and the joins are picture perfect. I recommend him without hesitation!
Eco Forest Flooring renovated my hardwood floors and did some general contracting work at the front (interior) entrance of my home. Overall I was very satisfied with the service and workmanship I received. John is a very passionate individual and was always willing to spend time answering any questions I had, and even allowed me to inspect his work (while he was conducting it) if I wanted to. Although the project took longer than both me and my partner wanted, we was satisfied with the end result. John even came to the house to address a concern I had in his workmanship after all of the renovations had been completed. John's passion for restoring hardwood floors showed in his work, and I would recommend him to friends. About 8% of my hardwoods required replacing; with his skill, you can't even notice which boards are original and which were replaced. Thanks John.
This is the custom shower John from Eco Forest Flooring installed for me. VERY affordable, honest, trustable work! He does not only do floors, he has helped me and my husband with most of our renos. I would recomend him to anyone looking for any renos!
John did our floors last year in the summer,he told us he had three professional employees and two of them would be working with him at our house (laminate flooring in the living room)-well,there was only one guy who was working with him, and professional he was not!!-Rather,he was a new trainee who John kept yelling at because he had no idea what he was doing,they also never showed up on time and would leave the job site not to return for hours,one time I called him on my way home but didn't tell him,he straight lied to me that he was there working just to get home and find out he had not stepped a foot there,since nothing had been done from the previous day!!!-after our floors were installed,the following day I noticed a separation on the planks while I wiped the dust off!!-right away I took pictures and called John leaving him messages and texting him as he wasn't answering the phone!!-he never called me back but did answer my texts stating it wasn't a big deal and that he would get to it when he could!!After weeks of waiting,I called and texted him a few times only for him to reply saying he had been in an accident and would come fix the problem when he got better.-Well John has never called or showed up to fix my floor and neither did he care to call,all my messages have gone un answered and truthfully we've given up!!!-I still have the rude text messages he wrote me!!-I would not recommend ECO Forest Flooring to anyone,and have told our friends wanting to get their floors done to look for another company as John can't be trusted!-It's a shame,because if only he'd done a good job we would have sent business his way.
John was very knowledgeable and professional in his advice on my renovation project. He provided us with fair options and estimates for the flooring, as well, and answered all our questions. Would definitely recommend him
John recently installed hardwood flooring in my bedroom. He came to do an estimate when he said he would and showed up on time to do the work. He was timely in returning calls and was extrememly curteous and friendly. He sets high standards in customer service and has a list of business 'rules' that ensure the customer is always treated properly. He cleaned up when finished and worked very neatly. And most importantly, the floors look beautiful - a real professional install and the price didn't change from the estimate. I would highl;y recommend John to anyone looking for a floor installer.
We would highly recommend John for any project. We had a horrible experience with another contractor. Poor workmanship, damaged floors etc etc. John came in and saved our floors. He was courteous, knowledgeable and on time and did excellent work. The polar opposite of the previous company. Very glad we were able to find him.
Jon made this project (refinish hardwoods, grout peel and stick tile) easy for me. I knew I had someone on the job who cared about his work and who would do the best job. He was always on time, he always answered questions, he cared about my home and being clean etc. while there. He and Connor took care of any little problems we may have had along the way. In a world where people are always trying to get more and do less....Jon at Ecoforest is a breath of fresh air.
This company is fabulous! John is very professional and knowledable. Had answers for all my questions and told me exactly how the job would go. Stayed within timelines and his guys were on time every day. He comes out to the job to make sure things are going as planned and is available if you need him or have questions. I knew from the initial meeting that I would choose johns company by the way he conducted himself. I am beyond happy that I chose to go have EFF do my laminate (3 bedrooms and hallway). THEY LOOK AMAZING! The workmanship is flawless. Casey was who did most of the flooring and he was awesome! A hard working perfectioist he is! Al joined him on the 3rd day and helped finish up and together they made the floors perfect. As most of us know it is extremley difficult to find hard working individuals that take pride in their work and stand behind their committments. I would highly reccommend EFF because they are all that and more! They certainly will be back in my home for my next flooring project! Thank you John, Casey and Alan for an an amazing job!
