2 years later, I’m happy to report that this was worth it and I would do it again.

        The floors look great! Dreaded having to do this, and move out while it was all being done, then having to clean the dust left all over walls, etc.. Popped in my zip, and sure enough there is someone out here on Long Island. Thank you so much!

    Did you identify the products used for the floor transformation? Looks sensational, and I like bright floors. For years only did very very dark floors with three coats of high-gloss polyurethane which could stand up to dogs and many many guests (it was a country inn) Also love those dark floors with oriental rugs.

    When I open my emails from you, I become like a kid during Christmas time, can hardly wait to open their present. I get so excited and cannot open my email fast enough, because I know whatever in the email, it will knock my sock off because everything you do is so great. Guess what? I was sooooo right, because you did just that, knocked my socks off with your additional design. Thank you!
