Outstanding quality, customer service and attention to detail– Go with Syd and you won’t be disappointed!
Syd’s Flooring did an incredible job refinishing my hardwood floors and matching existing floors. To make a long story short, sadly, I had originally hired a different company that has been in business for a long time in the Ottawa area and the nightmare began. The original company (not Syd) was hired for a simple job, which due to their improper processes, led to me needing my floors refinished completely – the floors had to be stripped to bare wood and stained twice, and they still didn’t achieve the colour that I chose to match other existing hardwood, or a colour that was even remotely close. After the 2nd attempt and significant damage to my floor boards, I fired the original company and based on the online reviews, called Syd in for an estimate.
His price was slightly higher, but worth every penny! The difference in the process undertaken to refinish my floors, relative to the original company, was far superior and the outcome was outstanding! Syd and Luc were great to have in my home. They were knowledgeable, clean, careful, polite, punctual and communicative. Their attention to detail was impeccable.
The 98% dustless sanding really is 98% dust free. I am very particular about my house, and I was amazed at how little dust was produced. When they were done, the remaining dust was the equivalent of not having dusted the furniture for 2 weeks. Clean up was easy, and I was not left with stain all over my quarter round and baseboards, which was the case with the original company.
Learn from my mistake – Just because a company has been in business a long time, does not mean they are good. In fact, for floor refinishing, I found that Syd’s Flooring, a newer company (relatively speaking), was far more advanced, with the latest technology in floor refinishing, than the well-established company that I had originally hired.
Great job Syd and Luc!! You are to be commended for your skill, attention to detail and professionalism.
We hired Syd to refinish our hardwood floors after seeing the reviews and meeting with him.
I was skeptical of all the great reviews, but they ended up being correct. The job was done as agreed on all counts, workmanship, timing and budget.
Syd is a perfectionist at his work, which is difficult to find these days. The floors were just amazing when done.
Syd takes the time to explain what the process will entail and will explain things for you during the process.
I would recommend Syd, without hesitation, to anyone looking for a professional job and professional individual.
Syd and his team were wonderful to deal with from beginning to end. It was easy to communicate with Syd over email or through Trusted Pros and he always returned my messages promptly. When the work started he and his team were courteous, professional and knowledgeable. Our hardwood had been covered in carpet for many years and had multiple staple holes and discolouration around the edges. With Syd's expertise he brought the floors back to life! The dustless system he used didn't leave ANY dust at all, which was wonderful for our move-in day. We chose a natural finish which looks beautiful. I really appreciated that Syd finished the project with brand new 1/4round.
I highly recommend him and his services. We love our refreshed floors, they are beautiful, thank you so much Syd!
I hired Syd's Flooring based on a referral I received from a real estate agent while I was looking to purchase a townhouse condo. I ended up buying an older townhouse built in 1975, however the existing wood floors had seen much better days. I decided to have the floors refinished, and they look truly amazing now! Having the floors refinished has added beauty and value to my home, and I am very pleased with the results! Syd and Luc were decidated to getting the job done in a timely, professional manner, and the craftsmanship was of superior quality! I would recommend Syd's flooring to anyone wishing to revive their old hardwood floors. Syd's Flooring delivers EXCELLENCE!
I'm a general contractor, I had met Syd several years ago back when he was working for another flooring company. Knowing that he had struck out on his own I decided to get in touch and see if he had interest in our job.
My wife and I were looking for our floors to get refinished while we were away on holiday. Obviously we needed someone that we could trust as there wouldn't have been anyone around to keep an eye on things while we were away. When Syd arrived to our first meeting both my wife and I were quite impressed. He is truly a genuine and authentic person. Everything was very transparent and comfortable. We had a couple other quotes from finishers I had used for projects in the past as well as referrals from other contractor friends of mine. In the end, our comfort level was with Syd.
While travelling, Syd was very communicative throughout the process with emails including pictures and descriptions. He really decompressed all the stress that is generally present throughout this type of project.
Upon arriving home we opened the door to our beautifully refinished hardwood floors. It was a fantastic welcome.
I will certainly be contacting Syd for any future projects and I highly recommend him for any floor refinishing project you may have.
Syd presented himself as a very personable and confident young man, and could speak with authority about hardwood floors, their composition, their variety, and how to best maintain them. He was polite and engaging, and took his time to explain the process of restoring my floors very well. I felt very confident in giving him the business. I was not disappointed. Syd and his crew were punctual and courteous, and got right down to work. They were very respectful of my home and all their surroundings, and took great care to get the job done efficiently.
I had another general handyman working on my home at the time, and he commented several times on how great the new floors looked and how impressed he was that they were able to get right up to the edges without damaging the baseboards or walls.
My floors look terrific and people think they are brand new, despite being more than 20 years old! I would recommend Syd without reservation. His business will continue to thrive I am sure.
Syd and Luc did a fabulous job on our hardwood floors. After 15 years we thought we had to replace the floors, as a few areas were severely worn. Syd and Luc restored them beautifully. They took the time to explain the process, the timing for replacing the furniture and proper care of the floors. They even left a maintenance kit!
Syd and Luc are true professionals. Stay away from friends and relatives with a sanding machine! Their dustless process allowed us to stay in the house, except for few hours.
I took five business cards to hand out to my friends and co-workers.
Syd and Luc did an outstanding job that brought our old and unsightly wood floors back to life. They now look like new. Dealing with Syd was a true pleasure. He was courteous, professional and extremely knowledgeable about the refinishing process, His quote was very reasonable, and he stood by it. Their workmanship was excellent. We have nothing but good things to to say about the process and the final result. We would heartily recommend Syd to our family and friends.
Syd and Luc did an excellent job on our floors. From the initial visit during which Syd carefully inspected the floors and provided a lot of useful information, through the sanding which was truly dustless as promised, staining and water-based finishing, to the final advice about maintenance, the team was professional, competent and helpful.
Communication throughout the project was exceptional; Syd and Luc both took time to explain what they were doing and why. This really helps to inspire confidence in their work.
The job was started when promised, and was completed on-time and on-budget.
Our floors look great, and we're fully satisfied with the service provided by Syd's Flooring. We would certainly do business with them again when we have a need for this type of service.

Services we offer:
Refinishing - 98% dust free sanding. With a professional dust containment system we are able to eliminate harmful dust that would normally be airborn throughout the house during sanding. With this process we are able to remove cupping, deep scratches, dents, and other damage. You can also change the colour of the floor with over 80 selections of stain colour. Refinishing requires sanding the floor to remove all the varnish and stain down to the bare wood to achieve a flat and even surface. We offer both oil and waterbased products when refinishing your hardwood floor in either a satin or semigloss finish.
Refresh - NOT FOR PREFINISHED FLOORING. 99% dust free. This process doesn't require sanding down to bare wood and is used when your on-site hardwood floor is still in good condition but the varnish has dulled down. It also removes minor surface scratches. This requires prepping the floor with a special solution that removes dirt, oil, and any other contaminants that may interfere with varnish application then scuffing the top layer of varnish using a specific abrasive disc to assure proper adhesion of the new top coat and finally 1 application of high traffic aluminum oxide waterbased varnish.
Stairs - We can refinish your existing stair treads. We also do installation of new stairs.
Installation - We only install solid hardwood flooring and engineered hardwood.
