David and his team refinished our old attic floors (that had been painted white) and they look fantastic! He was super efficient, flexible, took the time to make sure the process would be easy and safe for our family. We have a ten month old and a couple of dogs and cats so he made sure that their safety was put first down to the type of stain used.

I interviewed several refinishers for my 90+ year old hardwood floors. David Passow was informative and straight-forward in what he would do with respect to results, process and schedule. He followed through with fabulous results. Initially, I was worried about the many pet and other stains as well as warps accumulated over the century. He did not promise a perfect floor, but he conveyed confidence in removing almost all imperfections and minimizing the rest. His work on our “NEW” floor exceeded expectations! The stains were removed and other imperfections are not apparent. The before and after photos on his website were accurate – and likely you will see our photos soon. David displayed professional confidence in his craft, and he was fun and informative to work with in every stage of the process. He was eager to provide tips on care for the floor – as if it was his own. David was right on schedule from the start of the work through its completion. Prassow was extremely competitive in his pricing. I will call on David in the future for my flooring needs. You can’t go wrong in getting his low-keyed, professional advice and quote. Henry

We got ourselves in to a bit of a quandary when we decided to begin what we thought would be a trivial tiling project in our 475 sq. ft. kitchen. After getting through about half of the 3-6 layers of existing vinyl flooring and related flooring materials installed over the past 40 years, we eventually found a half tar covered maple floor from when the house was built in 1918 buried beneath. It had at least 3 areas that were significantly damaged with missing planks and/or water damage. We knew it would take an experienced hardwood floor refinisher to restore this floor to its original beauty, yet couldn't afford to live without a kitchen for much longer. We spoke with a floor refinisher who did good work for us in the past, but he wasn't available for a while and made clear that he wouldn't be able to start the job until more demo work was complete. Therefore we did some research and found David's Thumbtack page which had before/after photos of circumstances that looked much like our own. After leaving a message with David, he promptly returned our call and scheduled an appointment to come take a look at the state of our floor. David didn't seem fazed by what appeared to us to be a significant restoration project. This was very reassuring. What impressed us right away was that we could tell David wasn't about taking shortcuts and would treat our home as if it were his own home. Using his versatile plumbing and carpentry skills, he also planned to remove an existing “island” with a sink before starting any work which though seemed daunting was the right thing to do to get the job done right. After assessing the amount of work needed, David put together a realistic timeline and cost estimate, which were very reasonable. After removing the kitchen island successfully without a hitch, David got right to work on repairing the problem areas of the floor. He did an amazing job integrating new hardwood, when necessary, with the old wood without making it too obvious to the eye. Once the repairs were complete, David worked diligently according to the agreed upon plan to refinish the floor in its entirety. He maintained continuous communication with us via phone and text which was very helpful during the length of the project. The restoration project is now complete and the floor looks beautiful. It's a true testament to David's expertise, diligence and attention to detail. Thank you for your excellent service David! Steve Z.

David is an excellent person to work with. He is friendly, courteous, and trustworthy. He refinished my bedrooms and installed hardwood in my dining room and hallway for a very reasonable price. Don't hesistate to contact him for your hardwood refinishing/installation needs.

I interviewed quite a few HW floor refinishers and found that David was committed to doing the job right the first time. When it came to do the job he did a great job and exceeded my expectations. David will be the only one that will get the call when I need my floors refinished.
