Syd and his team brought our old oak floors (living room, kitchen, hall) back to life, after 20 years of abuse and wear and tear. From his first site inspection, I knew Syd was the right choice. His knowledge and professionalism stood above the other options we considered, and he noticed things others did not. He took the time, and cared. All of that was reflected in the work he then did. His team was on-time, efficient, professional and diligent. And, it was truly dust-free. Very impressive! The floors look fantastic, and we're very pleased. They look exactly how we'd hoped they'd look, and we were very impressed with Syd and his team and the whole process. I would strongly recommend you speak with Syd for your project.
I was very pleased with the services provided by Syd's Flooring in May and June 2019. Syd provided very professional services from the time he provided me with an estimate, to keeping to the agreed schedule, to the quality of the work, and to his flexibily to my evolving needs and availability.
i would highly recommend Syd's Flooring for a quality, dust free job.
Gerry, Ottawa, June 2019.
Our experience with Syd was outstanding throughout the entire process. He provided a thorough and thoughtful estimate, carefully describing challenges with an old floor, and at the time promised. Negotiations on finding a mutually acceptable time to do the work were cordial and professional.
He started work exactly on time as agreed, with his crew of two tradesmen who were equally skilled and agreeable to have in the house.
The work was completed on time as promised and was of the highest quality. Clean up was immaculate. Syd pays great attention to every detail of the multi-faceted process. The 35 year old floors are like new again.
To confirm our very positive impression of Syd, he quickly found time to come back to repair minor damage to the floor which we caused while we were returning furniture.
We have no hesitation in giving him the highest recommendation for hardwood floor restoration.

We had Syd and his team sand and refinish the birch floors on the main level of our home. Syd's attention to detail was evident from when we first met him for an estimate. Throughout the process, he explained all aspects very clearly, offered a range of options, and helped us find the finish that aligns with what we wanted aesthetically, and also has the durability that we need.
We couldn't be happier. The restored floors exceed our expectations, and all at a reasonable price! The Facebook/Instagram updates throughout the process were also a great added touch. As the project involved a large surface area, it was great to see how things were evolving over the several days that we were away while the team completed their work.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Syd's Flooring to anyone!

DON'T REPLACE, REFINISH! 98% DUSTLESS HEPA CERTIFIED
Syd's flooring, located in the nation's capital, is a small business leading the way in quality and innovation for the floor sanding industry. I am highly knowledgeable in all aspects of the flooring industry, always staying up to date with new sanding techniques and installation guidelines with information and skills acquired from the National Wood Flooring Association to guarantee you a top quality finished result.
Being a small business with only 2 people, it allows for greater attention to detail. From sanding the floor, to applying the finish, to putting down the toilet seat, I will treat your home and floor as if it were my own. Floor refinishing is an art that takes extreme skill to properly execute and I take great pride in the quality of my work.
I started working with wood when I was a child cutting and sanding wood figures for my mom to paint but sports quickly took over and the hobby died off. It wasn't till high school when I found the passion for wood working again and the hobby developed into making small furniture and I even helped build a small Minto townhouse. My first hardwood floor I installed was in my moms house when I was 19 and that's where I developed the passion for flooring. I took a summer job with a local flooring company, sanding and installing floors, learning the basic skills of the trade before going on my own. Using the knowledge available from the National Hardwood Flooring Association I was really able to hone in those skills to become the professional sander I am today.
My main focus is to provide you with an outstanding service. Transforming your floor, whether it be 5 years old or 100 years old, into the beautiful piece of art it has the potential to be.
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 - 99% dust free. This process doesn't require sanding down to bare wood and is used when your 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 and risers. We also do installation of stair treads and risers with solid wood.
Installation - we install laminate flooring, engineered hardwood, and solid hardwood.
