We couldn’t be more pleased with the job that Craig Miller (Vintage Wood Flooring, LLC) did on the floors of our 1882 farmhouse last month. Our original plan was to cover the existing pine floor with walnut flooring. The old floor was full of nails and had been patched several times over the years. Craig told us that he could sand and finish the existing floor wood, and that his equipment would create very little dust. He suggested that the nails could be countersunk and the plywood patches could be replaced with new pine wood floor boards that he could stain to match the old floor boards. Vintage took three days to complete the living room and hallway floors of our first floor. When we saw the results of their work we thought at first that Craig had replaced the entire floor with new wood. Actually, the finished floor was the original heart pine wood that now looked beautiful even before the finish was applied, just as Craig had predicted.
We are so glad that Craig explained to us that Vintage could refinish the existing old floor boards rather than to install a cover floor. The result of the refinishing is a lovely old wood floor that is full of character and history, and reflects a warm golden glow.
We would recommend Vintage Wood Flooring LLC to anyone who is planning to have their old wood floors. They do a great job with almost no dust, great clean up, and they really charge great rates.
