Syd was excellent. Friendly, very hard working and meticulous. He was also very responsive. This was my first time having Syd and would recommend him in a second to anyone. Thank you Syd for your very good work. Wish you great success and will tell others about your service.
Syd refinished the hardwood floors throughout my whole first floor. The floors were in varying condition of wear and finishes. Syd did an amazing and thorough job. The floors look beautiful.
Further more, it was a pleasure to work with him, he was very profession and easy to communicate with.
He was recommended to me because of his thorough work that left very little dust! He certainly lived up the recommendation!
I liked the refinishing of our main area hardwood floor done by Syd and his crew. The work was done professionally and it showed that they have a passion for their trade. I would definitely recommended them.
Highly recommend Syd’s Flooring to anyone who is thinking of refinishing their hardwood floors. My floors look awesome. Syd and his worker were reliable, very knowledgeable and helpful in choosing the right stain and finish for the floors. His quote matched his final bill but for me the dustless sanding was a key feature that saved me a lot of work and time.
Syd's Flooring team did such an incredible job of refinishing our 18 year old maple hardwood flooring and stairs. It looks amazing!!! We were impressed with every step of the process; from the free consultation right through to the end of the job. We were especially impressed with Syd's knowledge and explanation of the products and process and his courteous service oriented approach and design suggestions. His team did an amazing job of limiting the dust that was generated to the point where the residual dust was not even noticeable. I highly recommend this company. Great job.
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!
I was told by other contractors that hardwood refinishing is not lowest bidder type of work so, although his quote was slightly higher than others, we went with Syd's Flooring after looking at online reviews. It was worth every penny.
Syd is very knowledgeable and walked us through the whole process, recommending colours and finish types. He communicated with us for progress updates and for any issues encountered that required our input.
The end result looks fantastic. The sanding and staining was done so close to the wall that we were able to put 1/2" baseboards without any quarter round. We will definitely be contacting Syd again when the finish is due for maintenance.
We installed new hardwood flooring in the upper hall and had the main staircase recapped as the carpeted floor/stairs was starting to look alittle dated. Overall we are extremely pleased with our experience with Syd's Flooring. Both Syd and Luc worked hard to ensure a professional, top quality job was achieved. We highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a quality, professional service at a reasonable price.
Excellent work, extremely professional and courteous, very attentive to details which made a difference in the finished product. Would wholeheartedly recommend Syd to anyone considering refinishing their hardwood floors.
I purchased a 12 year old bungalow in Orleans with the intent to have the main floor hardwood refinished after years of obvious wear and tear. I showed the job to three Ottawa area contractors with Syd’s price, comments from social media and warranty being the deciding factor to go with his company. I am a trustworthy individual and gave Syd unescorted access to my home and appreciate his honest work effort to ensure the final product met not only mine, but his standard with respect to quality.
I have already provided Syd’s company to a colleague at work who used his services and will keep passing the word on.
Great work Syd, thanks.
The birch floor in our kitchen was badly worn (scratches from a dog plus two decades of wear and tear), and after contacting a few floor refinishers, we settled on Syd's Flooring. Almost all the others didn't want to come & look at the floor, but rather, simply provided a quote over the phone based on the dimensions I gave them....not ideal when the client wants to discuss the work in some detail and ask questions, as we did. Syd, however, was happy to set up an appointment; and then spent over an hour with us looking closely at the floor, explaining his process for sanding & refinishing, discussing the merits of various finishes, and answering quite a few questions. Syd's quoted price was competitive relative to what other contractors had estimated.
Bonus: Syd suggested that he do our dining room floor at the same time - it would be only a bit more expensive, because the two rooms together were only slightly over the square footage that he would refinish for his minimum charge. We'd never have thought to ask about that, and jumped at the chance to have two rooms done for a very reasonable price.
Communication with Syd was excellent throughout; the job started on the scheduled date and was finished on time; and the promised 99% dust-free sanding was more like 99.9% (yay!). We couldn't be happier with both the entire process and the result - absolutely gorgeous floors. Our finish of choice was Loba Supra AT satin, which is more often used on commercial floors but will provide super-protection against scratches and general wear in our kitchen, which gets pretty heavy use.
Syd also recommended that we have him do a refresh of the floors, particularly the kitchen, after about five years, or when we notice that we're seeing a lot of surface scratches. This involves a deep cleaning, then application of another coat of finish; having this work done regularly will likely delay the need for a full refinish (which is a LOT more disruptive) for quite a few years. We weren't aware of that as an option for long-term maintenance of hardwood floors, and will definitely have it done when the need arises.
It was a pleasure to have Syd and Luc working in our house. As well as being top-notch at the art of floor refinishing, they're personable and friendly, and didn't seem to mind answering our questions as they arose during the process. Should we need floor-refinishing services in the future, we will definitely hire Syd's Flooring again; and I recommend them without reservation to anyone looking for this kind of service. They are, quite simply, the best!
Syd and Luc refinished my 60 year old oak strip flooring that was in bad shape after decades of wear and partial DIY refinishing jobs. They did the entire house end to end two months ago and I could be happier with the results. The sanding job was superb and great care was taken to get even the tightest corners in the closets flat. I didn’t notice any dust whatsoever afterwards, not in the ductwork or on top of the picture frames I left on the walls.
The best part is the house didn’t smell like a varnish factory afterwards. Syd has a complete refinishing system based on low VOC water-based products for those who are interested in a more natural look. It smelled no different than a fresh paint job. It was largely cleared out by the time I was moving my stuff back 5 days later. Just a minimal background smell for another 2ish weeks after that, not an overpowering varnish smell.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Syd. He was very patient answering questions by email after the estimate and seeing him in action, he clearly loves what he does.
I would highly recommend Syd’s Flooring. I had my main level hardwood floors refinished and they look beautiful! There was little dust and, as advised by Syd, the odour is minimal (similar to when one paints).
A professional, experienced and knowledgeable service.
We would definitely recommend Syd’s Flooring and use them again. They were very professional, honest and reliable.
The weather (humidity) wasn’t in our favor when our floors were being completed but Syd was always in communication with us.
We love our refinished floors!
Floor sanding and refinishing; three rooms, hallway and a staircase including handrails and a shelf.
Syd provided all the information we needed about himself and his product. His system is very nearly free of dust, just as he said it would be.
Aside from doing a nice job on the floors, Syd did a good job of sanding and refinishing the stairway post and railings to match the floor.
It was a good job, done for a good price.
Great job on the installation. Syd and his team were very efficient and communication/coordination of service was fantastic. They also were very tidy and respectful inside and outside the house. We always knew what to expect and the end result looks great!
Syd's work was first rate. My floors are the original oak, and the finish was severely scratched and worn down. He and his colleague brought them back to life: on schedule and on budget. The stairs were rebuilt and blend in beautifully. It was a pleasure to work with someone who takes so much pride in his craft. And it really is virtually dustless.
Super happy with Syd's work. My floors were very worn and had not been touched for 18 years and he brought them back to their former glory. Great service and super efficient communications. The smell was not too bad, I was able to sleep in the house at night. The dust was also minimal. I would use Syd's service again, no question!
Syd sanded and refinished our floors while we were out of town for a few days. We left old, worn, and doggie damaged hardwood and came home to clean, bright and well sealed floored. They even filled in the old cable and wire holes that we inherited in our older home. Syd was able to give a very fair quote and payment was easy through e-transfer. We were warned about the amount of dust generated by floor refinishing, but it was negligible. Overall a very well done, clean and professional job.
I was very satisfied with the work that Syd and Luc did refinishing my 40 year old pine floors. The work was done on time, on estimate and with very little dust. The transitions installed at the room entries provide the professional look I had requested. The finish is supposed to stand up to dogs and I trust that this will be the case. I would recommend Syd's Flooring to anyone who needs their floors refinished. It was a pleasure working with both gentlemen.
Syd Flooring refinished floors that has been done about one year ago by another local company (who actually threatened to sue me if I did not remove my review of them Trusted pro is aware). Syd Flooring corrected the rough, uneven sanding job that had been previously done and the application of semi-gloss product was even and very well done. Additionally, as they use 98% dust free machines and have a state of the art equipment. They are meticulous and take pride in the work they do. One can expect a great finished product, which it was, and without having to call an extreme cleaning company to wash walls, windows and so on. We now have beautiful floors, have received many compliments from friends and family and had no qualms about referring Syd Flooring to those that asked (three so far)
I would not hesitate to recommend them. They are honest, hardworking and take pride in their work which is difficult to find today, and at a very fair price! We just wished we had found them last year.
Hardwood floors were in need of care. Even after cleaning them, they looked dirty from the wear and tear.
Syd’s Flooring promised 98% dust free and they weren’t kidding. No tapping or covering necessary. Estimate was in the ballpark of the other two companies I invited to quote.
After sanding and three coats of finish, floors are now AMAZING! I think maybe better than new, they are that awesome.
Owner and crew are very professional and easy to deal with. I HIGHLY recommend them.
After a couple of disappointing encounters with flooring contractors, we contacted Syd in regards to refinishing our existing hardwood and installation of additional hardwood in our kitchen.
At his first visit, Syd spent approx. 90 minutes educating us and describing the refinishing process. We learned a lot, and were very impressed with the time spent ensuring we were comfortable.
Syd and Luc arrived when they said they would each day. Friendly, conscientious, and again ensuring that we were happy with every step of the process. The results of the refinishing and installation are beautiful. We are extremely happy with our floors. Syd and Luc are invested in achieving the best results possible.
We would not hesitate to recommend Syd's Flooring to friends and family, and have!
We were/are very Happy with the work from Syd's flooring. Loved the dust free sanding and the new stain looks great. Syd and Luc did a fantastic job-they are very professional and easy to deal with. I would highly recommend them.
I'm really happy with the outcome of my finished floors. Reliability and quality workmanship is what we look for, and that is what we got. Our experience was stress free, Syd explained everything and always kept in communication. The best was absence of mess and dust in my house.
SO happy with our experience from Syd's Flooring! Syd takes obvious pride in his business using top quality products and equipment (no dust!). Syd and Luc worked very hard to make our 60 year old floors look amazing. They were very friendly and professional...a pleasure to have working in our home. Syd keeps on top of all of the advances in floor refinishing, and truly took as much care on our floors as if it were his own home. The colour-match of old flooring to new flooring was perfect.
I wish we could give more than 5 stars...Syd goes over and above to make sure his customers are happy!!
The hardwood flooring in the living/dining room in my condo was badly scratched by the previous owners who owned a dog. I did a google search and found Syd’s Flooring. The attraction to this company was that they advertised 98% dustless sanding. I must admit that I was very skeptical about this. I requested an estimate to have the floor refinished and was immediately impressed by Syd and his professional approach to explaining how he would refinish the floor…and yes it would be 98% dustless.
After the 3 day process of sanding, staining and applying the finishing coat I was truly amazed with the finished product. Syd’s Flooring did an incredible job refinishing the floor and matching the stair railing.
The 98% dustless sanding really was 98% dust free and I was surprised at how little dust was produced. When they were done, the remaining dust was that of not having dusted the furniture for a couple of weeks. Clean up was easy, and I was not left with any stain on the quarter round and baseboards.
They were knowledgeable, clean, careful, polite and punctual.
Thanks Syd and staff for a job well done! You are to be commended for your skill, attention to detail and professionalism.
Our floor was professionally installed over 22 years ago and after 3 kids and 5 dogs tracking over the floor for that period of time I wasn’t sure that the floor would ever look good again. I got quotes and invited several service providers to come and see the floor before they took on the job. I got four quotes, Sydney was the only one to actually take the time to come and see the floor and discuss the refinishing requirements. The floor had several areas with deep scratches, water damage, and finish completely worn off. His price was very competitive and certainly superior in terms of the work that was going to be provided and the products being used. The end result was absolutely perfect!
Thanks Sydney & Luc for doing such a great job, especially appreciated was the follow-up after the work was done to ensure that we were completely satisfied with the work. Syd also provided cleaning & maintenance instructions on how to keep the floor looking its best!
In short: A Fair price – Great workmanship!
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.
We hired Syd’s Flooring to refinish our red oak floors. Their work is simply amazing! Syd had initially explained his process and described the products he was going to use. He and his team were punctual, courtuous and professionnal. The end result is stunning, as they gave attention to details (such as working around old radiators and small spaces). They went out of their way to ensure that a crooked door would not leave any marks. Not only is the process dust-free, but the area was thoroughly cleaned at the end of the day and they were ready to start the next step of the process first thing the following day. We will have the rest of the house done by Syd’s Flooring without hesitation.
Efficient, professional service at an excellent price. Our 120 year old pine floors were refinished as were our stairs. They look amazing, I would not hesitate to recommend.
Syd and Marc refinished a 25 year old hardwood floor in my kitchen and eating area. I was amazed at the quality of the work and no dust. The floor now looks better than the day it was installed new. Professional, on-time, courteous and true pros. If you want a super job done this is the company to hire. Well done guys.
We hired Syd’s Flooring to refinish our oak hardwood floors that had been covered for many years by wall-to-wall carpet. The work was done in three stages beginning with dustless sanding (a great feature that left the house clean and dust free after each sanding), a wood filler to fill any cracks and chips and three coats of a water based finish that had little odour and dried very quickly. The end result is floors that look fantastic, enhancing each room.
Syd and Luc arrived at the promised time, were very accommodating, very easy to deal with when questions were asked and decisions needed to be made, left the house clean at the end of the day and completed the job on time.
We would highly recommend Syd’s Flooring to anyone looking to have their floors refinished and we would not hestitate to use Syd and his team again.
Syd and his guys did an awesome job on our floors. The house we had purchased had an older floor that was golden oak in colour that we were not fans of. Syd refinished it, filling in a number of cracks and other imperfections.
Excellent job, would hire again without a question.
Syd and his team worked under *very* tight timelines to install and finish a gorgeous new hardwood floor in an older house that we purchased . They pulled out the old, severely damaged hardwood (and the damaged plywood underneath), and put down a whole new floor that was finished in time for us to move into the house. In addition to looking flawless, the floor doesn't creak at all and feels so much more solid than the previous floor. We are very pleased with the result and would absolutely go with Syd again for any future work of this kind.
Syd always showed up at the time he promised. He does quality work and always keeps the site clean. He manged to finish the job a day early. I would highly recommend Syd's Flooring for your refinishing needs.
I got my living room floor refinished by Syd's Flooring and I'm extremely satisfied with the final product. The floor looks brand new as if it was just installed, all cracks and scratches completely gone. The work was done on time, communication was easy and always quick, the site was left extremely clean after the job was done and Syd was reliable and trustworthy.
I highly recommend Syd's Flooring to anyone in the Ottawa area thinking about refinishing their floor.
I had an excellent experience with Syd's flooring. Sidney was very prompt in replying to email requests, showed up on time for the estimate and more importantly started and finished the job when promised. The quality of work was very good as well, I would definitely recommend Syd's Flooring.
We hires Syd's Flooring to refinish our very worn hard wood floors in the living and dining rooms.
They were completely reliable, showed up when they said they would, finished when they said they would.
The floors look great!
These guys were great. Started and finished when promised. The floors look fantastic and they repaired some missing boards to blend in beautifully. Got rid of some annoying squeaks too! I would recommend this company to anyone.
Syd's Flooring is beyond amazing. Syd is very easy going yet professional and WOW the work is exceptional. I couldn't have asked for better work and the price was great. I highly recommend Syd's Flooring and I'll use him again for sure.
My husband and I were delighted with the service given by Syd's Flooring. I gave them a five star rating on each category because they absolutely deserve it. The quality of work was excellent, no mess, virtually no dust, careful clean up and a stunning finish. I had no idea that such a beautiful floor was hiding under 30 years of use.
The two man crew was always very prompt and curteous. They stayed on budget to the cent.
I am really speechless at the excellence of the whole project; how smoothly it went, how reasonably priced it was and how nice and personable the guys were.
I give them a total A+ and would recommend them whole heartedly to anyone searching for a refinishing contractor. Don't waste time comparing companies. These guys are the best.
What a difference! Our floor looks beautiful..We are extremely happy with the service from Syd's Flooring.. Work was completed on time in a professional manner. I will surely recommend Syd's flooring to our friends and family.
The job was completed in a professional manner. Care was taken to keep the rest of the house clean. The job was completed on time and looked amazing. I would recommend Syd's Flooring to my friends and family.
Syd and his team took their time to carefully match the stain and made sure that the floor did not had any imperfections of any kind! Very caring and dedicated team of guys..glad to show anyone their work and highly recommend syd for your projects. ..
We ordered material after Syd's Flooring took measurments. They arrived on time and had respect for our house-put down matts and hung plastic as needed. All cutting was done in the garage as per our request. Floor was completed in very timely manner, hardly any wasted product and a good clean up after they finished including a sweep in the garage. Will ask them to come back to quote for refinishing some of our hardwood floors on the main floor level.

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.
