"After living with old and peeling parquet floors for two years, we decided that we wanted real hardwood in our area. It is relatively small, about 330 square feet, but very oddly shaped.
We had a couple of people provide us estimates for our floors. Peter was by far the most knowledgeable; he asked us questions that the other people hadn't, and gave us a more detailed rundown of both our options and the tradeoffs and potential risks associated with our project. Specifically, hardwood is thicker than the parquet flooring, and that had implications for our appliances and how they lined up with the counter space. He gave us the option of either installing on top of the existing flooring, which would have been faster and cheaper, or ripping it out and re-leveling the floor (which we chose to do).
The work was done extremely efficiently. We were able to begin the work within a week of agreeing to the estimate. The entire process, from demolition to finishing, took from Tuesday to Saturday, and we were able to move furniture back and start using the space by Sunday.
The work itself is beautifully done. We love our floors, and you can see from the photos that he did excellent work. Once finished, he provided us with some care tips and equipment to protect the floors, which we really appreciated.
Andy was easy to communicate with, knowledgeable, reliable, and hardworking. Our experience with him and his company was great."
