Josef (Joe) with JL Flooring and his crew were incredible. Firstly, from generations of being in the wood floor business it is obvious Joe knows his wood. He took off an ugly dark brown stain from our new house. We thought we wanted a white wash gray, but Joe immediately stopped us in our tracks. It turns out there was an exotic Brazilian walnut underneath- he practically forbade us (in a very sweet manner) to cover up that floor. He suggested everything from color to type of stain. We went with the natural, oil that he recommended: it is gorgeous. Professional, fairly priced, thorough, and quite friendly. I would recommend JL Flooring in a heart beat. Thanks Joe!
