    Jason rescued my floors!

    I originally hired a local contractor I have work for me in the past. He said he has redone flors in the past. I should have known something was wrong in the beginning when he said he would need to rent the refinishing equipment. What conrtactor needs to rent tool anyway! So he showed up to sand the floorsand said he would be done later that day. When I came home from work 1 room was half sanded and he was gone. I called him to see what was going on. He stated there was a layer of glue on the floor and he can't remove it and he was not going to gome back and finish the job.

    So I called several so called pros and they all stated that it was carpet mastic and it can't be sanded off. Jason came in and said yes it is mastic but he can remove it and sand and refinish my floors. He delivered! He arrive and got to work. I came back several hours later to check on the progress. WOW. All the masitc was gone and he was almost finished sanding. He completed the whole process with the finish with in the agreed apon time and the the floors are beautiful beyond my expectations.

    Jason thank you for outstanding job!

    What a fantastic job!
    They really did an out standing job on my floors. They look new. Clean and professional. He is extremely knowledgeable on floors. I can't say enough.
    Thanks

  • 5/5 stars October 1, 2014

    I have several rental properties and I have used Jason many times. From complete refinishing to re coating. His work is fantastic, he is reliable, and very knowledgeable. His prices ave very fair. I would recommend him highly, he is your floor guy.

  • 5/5 stars September 28, 2014

    I chose A1 after receving several quotes. Is was very dstailed and priced very fair. So I hired him and scheduled the work. He was on time and went right to work. He completed the process in the the time frame he said he would. The floors turned out very nice. A lot better than I thought possible. His process was dustless and clean. I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

  • 1/5 stars September 27, 2014

    I had several bids to have my hardwood floors sanded and refinished. I went with A1 Pro because his bid was affordable and I felt confident that he had the technical skills and the quality of dustless sanding equipment needed for the project.

    After I returned to the home several days later after the final finish was applied, I saw very straight, thin, parallel dark lines in one area just inside of the front door. When I emailed Jason about it he did not react professionally. Instead of claiming that they could have been caused by carpet tack strip (which was impossible given that I removed all the tack strip from the baseboard perimeter only) he should have immediately volunteered to come out and take a look.

    There were other signs of unprofessionalism. He arrived early, which was fine, however, he should not have approached my open door until the agreed time. He gave off the vibe that made me wonder if he was "having a bad day". He was in such a hurry. He also promised to call at day's end to let me know how far he had gotten. He did not call. I called him, and given that vibe he gave off earlier, I thought I should stop by and check the house. He had left my front door unlocked. When I called and brought it to his attn., he did not apologize, simply said that he thought he had locked it.

    Another thing he should have done is call me after sanding was done to tell me that the areas where paint was stripped around the perimeter would not match once finished. He chose to tell me this after putting on the first coat, which I found out when I called him - instead of him calling me as promised. He then claimed that attempting to stain pine was too tricky to attempt. That was his opinion but he could have told me that at the proper time.

    Several contractors subsequently told me that they would have immediately come back and fixed such a problem and all told me that the only way to fix the problem was to resand and finish. Jason was not professional enough to be accountable in this way. The contractor who looked at it said that he should have fixed this whether or not the scratches were pre-existing, particularly because they were in a very prominent area by the front door, and that he thought (Jason) should have been more aggressive in sanding the darker areas of the floor overall.

    All of the other contractors that gave bids were also willing to put up protective sheathing, even with powerful dustless sanding equipment - if I wanted it. Yes, a greater cost, but in order to satisfy the customer. I had to put up containment sheathing myself. I chose him under these circumstances, but it just shows that he is inflexible.

    Even if a contractor is very skilled, something can go wrong, and you want them to be professional in seeing that your assets have been treated right and your money well spent.

    After making the decision to refinish our hardwood floors on our first floor we contacted several companies to get some estimates for the job. We went with Jason and he was by far the best. He was timely, answered all questions, was well priced, and did an excellent job with our floors. We would highly recommend him and we plan to use him again when we refinish our second floor in the spring!

  • 5/5 stars September 12, 2014

    WOW
    My floors look great now!
    Jason did a excellent job redoing them.
    Real fair price.
    Neat and professional.
    Highly recommend.

  • 5/5 stars July 24, 2014

    We wanted to redo our floors to put our house on the market. So my husband decided to do them on his own. Big mistake! He made the worse then I ever thought possible. So I call around and found mr. Barber. He was very polite and knowledgeable. He redid the floors and fixed all the bad spots my husband made. The over all results are beautiful and we are very satisfied with the job. My advice don't do it yourself hire A1 abd get it done right.
    Thanks

  • 5/5 stars July 16, 2014

    I had jason refinish my livingroom floor. The floor looks absolutely gorgeous now. Awsome job. We meet him through this site a while backe. He did a quote on our bed rooms. We actually hired another company at that time. They were a little cheeper in price, but they left runs in the finish. They would not come back and fix the floor. So we called jason back , he fix the mistake they left at a fair price. He really is customer service orentated.

  • 5/5 stars July 11, 2014

    Thanks

  • 5/5 stars July 9, 2014

    We had A1 refinish our floors a few weeks back. He came in on time every day. He sanded the floors with no dust and mess left behind. The process took a few days and once hevwas done the floor was very nice. He delivered a nicer floor than we expected. The price was very fair. In all respects it was a nice job and I would recommend this company to anyone.

  • 1/5 stars July 9, 2014

    After coming to give us an estimate, we hired him. We moved all our furniture in preparation of his arrival. No show, no call. He never responded to our phone calls and emails as to why he blew us off.

  • 5/5 stars April 21, 2014

    I wanted my floors refinished. I had several companies look at them. They all said they were too far gone to be refinished since they were over 90 years old and had multiple layere of paint and finish on them. I had just about give up on the idea of redoing them. Jason came and evaluated them he informed me that yes they were old and had some issues , but they most definitely could be refinished. He came out and preformed what he does with his process . He said the would look good but they well exceeded my wildest expectations. They are absolutely beautiful. I am stund by the final outcome. This is you refinishing company. Thanks!

  • 5/5 stars April 9, 2014

    We had our floors refinished by Jason last week, and what a fantastic job. Very professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Jason and A1 pro to anyone needing floor refinishing, he is your man.

  • 5/5 stars January 22, 2014

    We had a water leak and water poured out of the ceiling on to our floors while we were at work. After the floor dried the floor the wood cup a bit and the finis started to come off. We had a few companies tell us that the floor was done and need to be replaced. They seemed like thebjust waned to sellmus expensive new flooring. Jason came and looked at our floors and he assured us they were not damaged beyond repair. He sail the cuping could be sanded out and the floor could be refinished. He was totally right. The floor look perfect now. Bette than I could have hoped for. Awsome job and a very fair price. Way better than repalcing. I would recommend consulting jason on you flooring projects.

    We were looking to get new bamboo hardwood floors installed in a house we just purchased. We slected a stranded bamboo floor we found at lowe's . An installer came out from Lowe's and measured our floors and gave us an installation price. Their price was very expensive, so we decided to find an installer on our own. We found Jason and he came out to give us an estimate. He measured and we discussed the project. I showed him samples of the floor were getting from Lowe's and he said he was familiar with the type and brand of flooring. I told him what Lowe's was charging us cor the flooring and he said he could get the same flooring and brand for a lot less. A $1.35 a square foot less to be exact. Well we cancled our order wilt lowes and ordered our flooring through the place Jason suggested and we saved over $800. The flooring came in within a week. Jason installed it the following week he did an excellent jod on the install. His installation price fair. We also had him redo all baseboard new and he did a fine job on that also. If you are in need of a flooring guy Jason is you man.

  • 5/5 stars December 15, 2013

    I had new floors installed in my living room and dining room. Then had both the new floors and 2 previous existing floors in my bed rooms sanded and finished. The new floors and the old floors look exactly the same. Jason did a great job, my floors look great. Highly recommended.

  • 5/5 stars December 9, 2013

    We got several bids on refinishing our wood floors. We originally chose another company to the floors. Their price was much lower than or other bids. Our floor turned out awful, ruff and blotchy. So I call A1 to come out and see if they could be fixed. Jason said he could fix the damage done by the other guy at the price he originally quoted us. We decided to to give it one lsst shot. Wow! He did it in half the time it took the other contractor, and they are absoutly smooth with a beautiful even color. I guess when it comes to your floors you really get what you pay for and all flooring companies are not created equal.

  • 1/5 stars December 9, 2013

    Do not hire this man. Perhaps he would do decent work if he bothered to pick up his phone or return a phone call. We had him out for an estimate, scheduled a day, picked a stain color, and then proceeded to call him four times and leave four messages on the day he was scheduled to start. He is the most unprofessional person we have ever worked with. People take off work and get their whole house ready only to have this person not even return phone call. We will never ever refer him to anyone and we look forward to sharing this unprofessional experience with anyone looking for a referral. We are thoroughly disgusted.

  • 5/5 stars November 30, 2013

    I wanted my floors redone and had several companies quote the floors. A1 was the only company that said they could repair the stain spots in the entryway and they delivered. The job turned out better than I expected. They were fast, clean, and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend A1 they are a customers friendly company.

  • 5/5 stars November 21, 2013

    I had A1 completely refinish the oak floors in the home I recently bought a few months ago. Jason came out in person to evaluate the condition of the floors. He took the time to explain all of our options and answered all of my questions . We hired him to do the job. He was on time and did exactly what he said he would be done. Actually he was done a day ahead of the scheduled time he said it would take. The price was fair, much better than the other quotes I received. Thefloor looks awesome, like new. The color is beautiful and the finish is smooth and clean looking. I actually recommended him to a friend and they had nothing but good to say on the job he did for them as well. Jason wes very professional, polite, and pleasant to do business with. If you are looking for a floor refinishing contractor A1 is the company you are looking for.

  • 5/5 stars November 15, 2013

    Jason sanded and refinished my floors about 3 months ago. He did a verry nice job, and finished on time. My home was completely free of dust and mess, we did not have to clean after he was done. The floors look as good today as they did the day they were finished. The durability of the finished product is great. I have several dogs and 2 childern and the floor is still free of scratches and scuff marks. I would certainly us Jason again.

  • 5/5 stars November 12, 2013

    We had A1 come out and perform sandless refinishing on the floors in our restaurant. We had limited time to be closed since we are a business. They came early on a Sunday morning while we are normally closed and did there process. They laid several coats of new finish to our floors, and they were completely done in about 10 hours. The floors were revitalized to an almost lik3 new conditions. There was no mess or fowl smell left behind. The next morning the floors were dry, clean and loked super, we were able to open on time that day like nothing had happened. Thanks for going out of the way to accommodate our requirnents and needs.

  • 5/5 stars November 12, 2013

    This is the third property of mine I have had A1 refinish the floors at, and as in the previous 2 occasions the floors have turned out absolutely fantastic. I would recommend A1 to anyone who wants there floors professionally redone. Top notch work.

  • 1/5 stars November 11, 2013

    Work was scheduled. I tried to confirm by phone two business days prior with no return call. No show and no call on scheduled day. Very upsetting when you take off work to have work done.

  • 5/5 stars June 12, 2013

    Had several flooring contractors give us an estimate on our project. Jason was by far the most resonable, as we had a limited budget. If you're looking to get your floors looking beautiful, and have it done at a resonable cost. Then Jason is your man, he's very professional, freindly and knowlegeable. We took a little vacation while Jason refinished our floors. When we came back we were amazed at how nice they came out. Our house is 70 years old and we were told by several contractors that the floors had never been refinished. They were in pretty bad shape, Jason brought them back to life and now they look unbeliveable. I highly recommend Jason to do your flooring project. Give him a call you won't be disappointed.

  • 5/5 stars March 21, 2013

    I had A1 Pro refinish the floors in my entire house. The job was scheduled for 5 days. They finished a day ahead of schedule. The floors are fabulous and look new. A1 did a great job. Very clean not dust or mess was left at all. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is looking for their floors to be refinished.

  • 5/5 stars March 3, 2013

    we had A1 come out and refibish our floors. The floors looks like there are brand new. The floors were completed on time with no mess or lingerling smell. nice fair price, all in all a great job, great company.

  • 1/5 stars February 27, 2013

    He came over to give me an estimate. Seemed very nice and fair. I hired him. He scheduled a day to come over and do the work and never showed up. When I contacted him he basically told me he couldn't do the job. I'd keep moving

  • 5/5 stars November 6, 2012

    Jason sanded and refinished the floors in our house. He also replaced the bad water damaged wood at the entrance by the door. The replacemment was so well done you can come not even tell its not original to the home. The overall quality of the work far exceed my expectations, and the price was a very fair price. We couldn't be more pleased. I highly recommend Jason and A1 Pro.

  • 5/5 stars October 9, 2012

    Outstanding job! A1 refinished our hardwood floors. They were beat up and scrached real bad. I did not even think they could be redone, but Jason sanded them and put new coats of finish on them. Now they are like new. Fantastic job.
    thanks
