About Mac's Hardwood Flooring

hired 12 times on Thumbtack

I sand and refinish hardwood flooring. I also install hardwood, laminate, pergo, and pre-finished woods. Each floor is an art project for me. I love to do the work.

What ever color you want, I can help you achieve the results you envision. I am highly skilled and qualified at staining and mixing colors. I use the best water-based finishes on the market. I always apply two sealer coats and two top coats; satin, gloss, semi-gloss, what ever you like or prefer.

    Geary was a pleasure to work with. He was always on time and prepared. We absolutely love the floor it's exactly what we imagined it to look like.

    Thanks Geary!

    I cannot say enough about Geary's work and professionalism. First of all, the quality of services were first-rate. His communication and timeliness went above and beyond expectations. He transformed my old flooring into something that looks brand new. Bravo!

    Our dogs had ruined the natural cherry floors in our kitchen, foyer and dining room. We made a huge mess trying to sand them ourselves, but Geary saved us! He sanded, hand distressed and refinished the floors perfectly. They are so unique and far more beautiful than they ever were, even when they were new.

    Geary is super easy to communicate with, and his customer service is the best. I highly recommend Mac's Hardwood Flooring.

    My fiance and I recently bought a house in Boardman with some serious pet stain problems. Our desire was to get the smell out of the floors which is what brought us to Mac's hardwood. Not only did Geary get rid of the smell, but he made our floors look like new again. He sanded, stained and finished the floors and they look GREAT! Geary is personable, accommodating and very professional in his work. His prices are very reasonable as well; there were no hidden fees.

    My wife & I fell in love with the floor plan and neighborhhod and bought a fixer-upper in Poland so we've had alot of work done by many home improvement providers since 2010. I'd use the word "professionals" but that hasn't always been the case. Too many wanted to get in and out ASAP and put a check in the box. In too many cases there was always some disappointment. Not with Geary.

    If you are looking for a man who takes immense pride in his craft and is passionate about how his work will look in your home, you absolutely need to get in touch with Geary. It's cliche, but I truly feel that the job he did on our home was the same he'd do on his own. We weren't sure what direction we wanted to go for color and finish so after he prepped the floor Geary put down no fewer than 9 different stains and finishes so we could decide what they looked like on OUR floor, not on a paper sample in a big box store. Geary was on site every minute of the job and he and his crew were professional, polite and conducted themelves as gentlemen at all times. We also feel good about supporting a young businessman (and his family) who is making his way the right way with no shortcuts and supporting the Valley. If you thought old school craftsmanship was a thing of the past you haven't had Geary do work for you. If you are thinking of having your hardwood floors redone, you absolutely owe it to yourself to at least bring him in for a visit. We literally couldn't be happier. Our floors look amazing!

    Gary did a great job at a great price. He took extra care to make sure the color turned out good and didn't rush the job at all. The floors came out great and I would definitely use him again should I need my floors refinished.

    Geary did a great job sanding, staining and refinishing the hardwood floors in my home. Good guy, great prices.

  • 5/5 stars March 19, 2012

    Geary sanded, stained and finished approximately 500 square feet of oak hardwood flooring plus stair treads on a home remodeling project I am performing in Forest Hills, PA. Geary showed up on time for scheduled appointments, and he was very knowledgeable with respect to the process and the products used. The project was completed timely and at a VERY reasonable price. I would recommend Geary for anyone looking to refinish their floors.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I refinish a lot of old homes, making the old, "beat up" floors look brand new again. I do a lot of word of mouth work. A lot of my customers are looking to add value to their old homes, and refinishing hardwood floors is a great way to achieve that goal. All of my customers have been extremely happy with the outcomes of their floors, and I look forward to working with you!

Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.

A. I just recently finished a job in Glenshaw, PA. It consisted of: a dining room,living room, and hallway. The customer went with an early american,cherry,and gunstock mix--it was a great color. I finshed it with a semi-gloss finish.

Also, I just did a job in Forest Hills, PA. It consisted of: a dining room,living room, and stairs.The customer went with early american stain. I finished the floors with a satin finish.

Also, I did another floor in Glenshaw, PA. It consisted of: a dining room,hallway, and two bedrooms. The customer went with a provincial stain, and I finished with a satin finish.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. It's my philosophy, that you have to find someone who will treat your floor and your home like it is their own. I love the work, and you won't be disappointed. I am always courteous, kind, prompt, and reliable. I will listen to your needs and concerns, and make sure that you are satisfied with your floors.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. My belief is that good, quality finish goes a long way. Some companys will bid cheap to get the job, but there is a reason for that. They are skimping on the materials, and giving you low quality finish so that they can make more on a job. I believe you need the best material for the job, and nothing less. I take pride in my floors. Why would I just slap a cheap coat of finish on top, knowing it won't hold up as long?? I want my floors to stay beautiful, and one way to ensure that is by investing in the right materials.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. How many coats of finish will they use? What type of finish will they use? What is the life/grade of the finish? What are the best ways to pick a color for your floor?
You should always ask for references, and also to see prior photos of their work, before and after shots.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Before choosing a hardwood flooring company, make sure they have plenty of refrences,and pictures to back up any claims they make. Also, how long will it take to get the job done? Some companys over book jobs, and that is not good business. Another point to consider is the quality of materials a company uses. If you are using a low grade finish, you are going to get low grade results that will not last nearly as long as higher quality materials, and in the end, you'll end up spending MORE money over the life of the floor on repairs and upkeep. In the end, it makes more sense to spend the money on quality materials that will last a longer time and keep your floors looking beautiful.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I feel that my artfully blended colors are rich, vibrant, and bolder than with other hardwood flooring companies, because I take my time and have had extensive years of training and experience in staining. Every minute detail is important, and I take my time. I use the best finish on the market, Basic Coatings, because it is durable and of the highest quality. I use only the best materials on my projects.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. When I was 21years old, a friend of mine got me a job sanding floors.I quickly discovered I had a talent for it, and luckily I was learning from the best hardwood floor company in northeastern Ohio.I love to see the difference made when you work hard, and the fruits of your labor are fulfilled, when you finally put that last coat of finsh down.I like to work with my hands, and found that the job was just for me.
