We thought this page might help you to get to know us at Tadas Wood Flooring a little better and let you see exactly who will be in your home restoring your floors.
We are a hardworking, professional crew of four great friends that get along great and work together extremely efficiently.
Below is a little more information on each of us:
Tadas started out in the hardwood floor restoration work just over 17 years ago. Originally from Lithuania, he immigrated to the States when he was 20 years old. After spending a year as a professional commercial cleaner (where he developed his “clean freak” habit) he was offered a job with a prestigious hardwood flooring company. He loved the idea of bringing old floors back to life, so he accepted the position, started being trained in high end hardwood floor restorations and soaked up everything he could during the next 5 years.
After that stint, he changed companies and started working for another business for a little while. But soon he realized that he would be able to make much better use of his skills and offer the higher quality work he wanted to do if he went out on his own. So he started Tadas Wood Flooring in 2002 and hasn’t looked back.
He’s extremely proud of the high quality work he produces for his client’s and the fun, hardworking team he has been able to assemble.
Tadas continues to perfect his skills to always stay on top of the many changes and innovations within this industry. He has a great respect for his fellow flooring professionals and considers himself very fortunate to be counted among the small handful of dedicated artisans to the craft here in Naperville and the surrounding area.
Other than thoroughly enjoying restoring his client’s floors, Tadas loves the weekends when he gets to spend time with his daughter and twin boys. He also enjoys cooking and trying out new recipes, so if you have a favorite to share, he’ll be all ears with his notepad ready.
He also enjoys photography and all the photos on this site are his work. If you would like some great before and after shots of your own floor restoration, make sure you ask him before he starts your restoration and he’ll be more than happy to oblige.
Mike has been working with Tadas Wood Flooring for over 8 years now. He came over from Lithuania in 2003 to start a new life and ended up in Chicago. Not long afterwards he met Tadas and they joined forces. His skills as a custom furniture builder in Europe lent themselves perfectly to the high quality, detailed work he would be called to do working alongside Tadas.
Mike is a quick learner and is highly skilled in all aspects of hardwood floor restorations. He’s probably the most diligent, hardest worker you’ll ever meet. In fact at one job, while he was working inside refinishing a floor, a siding crew was slowly working on re-facing the exterior. Tadas saw the frustrated business owner gather his crew together, take them to the window where Mike was working and proceed to tell them “That’s how you’re supposed to work!”
You will notice that Mike doesn’t say much while he’s working, he says it’s because he’s focusing on his work, after you see what he can do with your floors, I think you’ll agree with him.
He’s a proud Dad, a happy husband and he loves his job. What more could you ask for.
Slawomir moved over from Europe with his parents 16 years ago when he was 11 years old. He joined forces with Tadas Wood Flooring 4 years ago.
He started in this specialized trade 8 years ago and ever since he’s dedicated himself to perfecting his flooring skills. Like the rest of the team, Slawomir is experienced in all aspects of hardwood flooring and you can tell he thoroughly enjoys his work. He’s a wizard on the edger and loves seeing floors being transformed in front of his eyes.
When you get to meet him you’ll see he’s a very friendly and an extremely dedicated, hardworking guy. You’ll love having him in your home, taking good care of your floors. We definitely love having him work with us and being part of the team.
Paul is the latest recruit to Tadas Wood Flooring but he is by no means new to hardwood flooring. He has been restoring wood floors in Naperville and Chicago for the last 15 years. He originally worked side-by-side with his business partner until last year, when his partner retired. Instead of going it alone, he decided to team up with Tadas.
He has extensive experience custom designed installations like herringbone floors and custom borders. With his years of experience installing, sanding, staining and refinishing hardwood floors, Paul is a tremendous asset to the business.
Not only does he possess all the technical skills needed to see a job completed from start to finish, he also has the dedicated, calm and easy going personality to go along with them. You’ll love having him working in your home and on your floors.
