Hardwood Floor sanding and refinishing are the most advanced tasks in servicing wood flooring that you the informed Newport Beach homeowner has come to appreciate. Resurfacing is a craft that demands many years of experience to be proficient at creating a fine finished table top effect to wood floors free of sander scratches and undulation. Hardwood floor refinishing is a unique talent in that the craftsman is working mostly with knowledge not sight; in other words, he must be experienced with each detailed step during the entire process in order to achieve the desired result in color and finish that will not be seen until the last coat dries. Although I have mastered this key hardwood floor refinishing fundamental more than 35 years ago, I am constantly exacting the industry procedures in refinishing all types of engineered and solid wood floors. The contractor who cares for your home is the one who only operates Dust Control or Dustless Sanding Equipment. My skill in sanding and refinishing hardwood floors have saved my Newport Beach clients an average of 80% the total cost of replacement. Often homeowners hire me to refinish their hardwood flooring to a new look after other contractors have misled them in thinking that their wood floors could not be sanded.

Hardwood Floor repairs and restorations stand alone as wood floor service tasks. Other than identifying species, cut and grade; there are two basic details in being historically correct with older Newport Beach hardwood flooring repairs and restorations. The existing wood floors must be inspected for; 1) a "bundled feet" order of individual lengths’ versus "nested" bundles of average lengths. The replacement boards must have the same random lengths and end joint spacing as the existing boards for the repair not to be seen. 2) growing region. The lumber growing region will affect the match of the new wood floor material in density, color and character. Example; southern red oak can have more character and texture than northern red oak, because in hotter claimants the trees grow faster and mostly along river beds so the wood is less dense and absorbs more minerals. My knowledge of hardwood floor history and skill with woodworking tools have developed my craft to the point that when I complete a Newport Beach hardwood floor repair and restoration project it will have the appearance of no prior damage nor add on.

Most hardwood floors can be repaired.  If the material is not in production, I can make it and finish the repair to match as close as possible.

For 35-plus years I have been installing hardwood floors in the Newport Beach area. I have worked with just about every type of solid and engineered wood flooring imaginable. Smooth, distressed, wire brushed; strip, plank and parquet in pre-finished and custom designed finished on-site alike. I have installed domestic and exotic hardwood floor species of all grades from common to clear and cuts from plain, rift and quartered including borders and marquetry work. My Newport Beach hardwood floor installation service is complete. Such as: subfloor preparation that meets the wood floor manufacturers specifications in flatness for eliminating popping and hallow spots. Additionally, damp retarders are applied on every project to warranty against future vapor emission damage. I also install trim, wall moldings and staircases. (I regret not photographing all my work.)

It is with my long applied experience, that I have improved on the coefficient formula used to predetermine dimensional change in hardwood flooring after installation. The U.S. Department Of Agriculture places our reference area along the coast running from Mexico to Canada. I came up with a simple method in narrowing down the reference area to every individual house. This way, I can assure my Newport Beach hardwood floor installation projects will remain stable after the acclimation and field expansion processes.

I install all hardwood flooring that meets my warranty procedures, including stairs and molding.
