I began refinishing hardwood because frankly I did not have the money to pay someone thousands of dollars to refinish the floors in my first home. It was an old Mission style home that I named "Eleanor". She was beautiful to me but the hardwood floors were in bad shape. I called in a professional hardwood floor refinisher to give me an estimate. The number he gave me was so out of the park, I decided right then to do them myself. Had I ever done sanded hardwood floors before - Nope!
Do you offer any service after finishing the work?
We offer full home cleaning on large projects, which include vacuuming vents, wiping down window seals as well as walls and cleaning windows if needed.
