Stained Red Oak Hardwood Floor in Willowbrook:

THE CLIENT: Tina Luttrell – Willowbrook, Illinois

THE JOB: Tina and her husband had just moved from Florida to Naperville and purchased a town home. It had beautiful red oak installed… but the finish left a little bit to be desired as it was quite worn out.

There was also a 4ft half wall dividing the dining from the living room which needed to be removed. Once it was, there was a large void in the floor. Instead of lacing in new oak over a big area, Tina liked the idea of installing a walnut border to visually divide the dining area from the living area. Not only does it look great… it saved a considerable amount of money for them as well.

THE SPECIFICS: The stain Tina chose is 25% Spice Brown. We applied our 3 coat Pallmann Pal-X96 water based finish system.

Tina's Feedback...

A friend, at work, recommended Tadas Wood Flooring, when we decided to renovate a recently purchased older home. The existing floors looked like pine stained with a very light blonde, almost yellow finish. My husband, at first, wanted them torn out and replaced. When we found out how expensive it was to replace wood floors, we entertained the idea of refinishing. My husband wasn’t expecting much and I was hopeful that the end finish would at least be nicer than the existing floors.

We found Tadas to be very professional... he was very meticulous and has a true passion for what he does. We highly recommend Tadas Wood Flooring.

Upon our first meeting with Tadas, we found him to be very professional in the way he conducted his business. After speaking with him, I knew that he was very meticulous about his work. He has a true passion for what he does. There was no doubt in my mind that he was the right person for the job.

As we proceeded with the job, I was pleasantly surprised with the manner in which he always returned my phone calls and emails, as well as he continued to stay on schedule. When it came to picking out stain, Tadas completely understood the look and color I was hoping to achieve. A few times, he brought back samples to show me and came up with my ideal color of stain.

As the refinishing process began, I appreciated the fact that Tadas was willing and flexible with our construction schedule as we had other disciplines of workmen, coming in and out of the house while the refinishing was taking place.

In the end, my husband and I loved the wood floor. It looks brand new. We were surprised of how much wood grain shows and “pops” out compared to the old floor. The color, look and feel greatly surpassed our expectations.

We highly recommend Tadas Wood Flooring to all our family, friends and co-workers.

Tadas, we can’t thank you enough for giving our home a new, warm and impressive feeling as soon as we walk through the front door. We greatly appreciate the fantastic job.”

Sincerely,

Tina Luttrell

Orland Park Red Oak Hardwood Floor and Custom Staircase:

THE CLIENT: Arch Remodeling – Orland Park, Illinois

THE JOB: This was a brand new custom designed house with 2,800 sqft of new red oak installed. It also had a beautiful hand crafted staircase handrail – designed and built by the very talented owner – as the homes show piece. We sanded and refinished the living room, family room, kitchen, dining, 5 bedrooms and staircase. This was a fun and interesting project for us.

THE SPECIFICS: The floors and stairs were kept the natural color and were coated with Synteco acid cure finish. This project was completed a few years ago before the new VOC laws – we don’t use this finish anymore because of the high fumes and smell.

THE CLIENT: Arch Remodeling – Orland Park, Illinois

THE JOB: This was another project for Arvydas. These floors are beautiful random width french white oak. They were distressed and then stained before being coated. The project was about 400sqft comprising of the kitchen, dining room and living room.

Hardwood Floor Sanding Project in Plainfield, Illinois:

THE CLIENT: Cy Mahnke – Plainfield, Illinois

THE JOB: Cy and his wife wanted to restore their worn and scratched red oak flooring throughout their home. They also decided to get rid of the carpet in their office and replace it with new oak to match the rest of the hardwood floors.

After installing the new flooring in the office, we sanded and refinished all the floors in the kitchen, entry and hallways and of course the office.

THE SPECIFICS: Cy wanted to go for a natural poly look, but in a water based system to cut down on the smell and fumes... so we first coated the sanded floor with Bona Amber seal to give it the rich poly look he was after and then top coated the floor with 2 coats of bona Mega satin. As you can see from the pictures it looks very similar to a deep, rich polyurethane finish.

Cy's Feedback...

We have a lot of hardwood flooring in our home and after 11 years it was time to refinish the floors which were showing the normal wear and tear of scuffing, scratches and dull areas. At the same time we wanted to replace the carpet in our office and replace with hardwood flooring and match the oak flooring we wanted refinished in the rest of the house.

We were extactic with the results of our new wood floors. We will be giving your name to all our friends and family if they need wood flooring refurbished or installed.

We went online and contacted several people to come to our home and quote the total job. The web site for Tadas Wood Flooring was the most complete and informative as to what to expect even before Tadas came to our home to review the project in detail and give us a quote.

You could tell during the project review that Tadas took pride in his work and that the quality of his work would be nothing but perfect.The quote for the project was not the lowest cost, but we felt we would get the best possible results working with Tadas.

Upon returning from vacation we opened our door to view a beautiful refinished oak floor throughout the house. We were amazed how beautiful the office looked with the newly installed oak flooring. Everything was put back in order and there was no dust to be found. They had done a wonderful job of cleaning all the dust.

We were extactic with the results of our new wood floors. We will be giving your name to all our friends and family if they need wood flooring refurbished or installed.

Stained Maple Floor in Downtown Chicago:

THE CLIENT: Arch Remodeling – Chicago, Illinois

THE JOB: This hardwood floor refinishing project was in a 9th floor of Chicago building right downtown. The floors in the bedroom and closet were installed to match the maple flooring in the rest of the 650sqft apartment.

It was a bit of a challenge as Maple floors always are as they are the hardest floors to stain evenly. This floor turned out great as you can see in the pictures below.

THE SPECIFICS: The Maple floors were stained with Bona red mahogany stain and then we applied our 3 coat Pallmann Pal-X96 water based finish system.

Custom End Grain Mesquite Floor in Orland Park:

THE CLIENT: Arch Remodeling – Orland Park, Illinois

THE JOB: This unique floor is end grain Mesquite. It was custom milled and installed piece by piece which was a long and tedious process but well worth the time put into it. It is in a underground entertainment/bar room with the floor extending into the private wine cellar.

THE SPECIFICS: The floors were finished with two coats of OSMO hardwax oil.

Stained Red Oak Hardwood Floor Restoration in Lockport:

THE CLIENT: Jeff Rimsnider – Lockport, Illinois

THE JOB: This was a 10-15 years old house with beautiful red oak installed throughout. It was in pretty dire need of a face-lift though as you can see from the pictures below.

We refinished the hardwood floors in the family room, bedroom, office, kitchen, hallways and entrance. In the kitchen there were a few water damaged boards under the refrigerator that we needed to replace. The office only had a hardwood border with carpet in the center, so we removed the carpet, added a walnut border and installed new red oak in the center area. You can see the results in the picture with the blue walls below.

Also we had Remis (our stair guy) install new red oak stairs to the basement, which we finished to match the floor. All up this fun project took us 7 days to complete.

THE SPECIFICS: The stain Jeff decided on was Nutmeg Brown. We applied our 3 coat Pallmann Pal-X96 water based finish system over the entire floor.

Jeff's Feedback...

Tadas – Thank you for all the workmanship you and your crew did in our home. We are extremely pleased. I would totally recommend you to my closest friends and family. I found out about your company because of one of you work vans that I drove next to on the highway. I immediately called the number on the van from my car and you personally answered....

We are extremely pleased. I would totally recommend you to my closest friends and family.

You were very accessible to talk to and e-mail, and had all the answers to the questions my wife and I had when considering what company to go with. Most importantly you and your company delivered on all our wants and needs and this is why I would totally recommend you. Your crew was very professional, and very clean. I was concerned about the dust and odor and it was not that bad at all. We have a family of 5, and managed to live through the work.

Continue doing what you are doing Tadas. Businesses go either up or down and your business can only go up as I see it!

All the Best – Jeff

Plain Sawn Red Oak Project in Hinsdale:

THE CLIENT: Doug, MDG Builders – Hinsdale, Illinois

THE JOB: This was a big 3,000sqft project in an amazingly designed $1.7 million home. The home had 3 1/4" plain sawn red oak throughout the living room, dining, kitchen, family room and the 5 bedrooms. As you can see from the pictures below, the stained floor turned out looking great and Doug was extremely pleased with the outcome.

THE SPECIFICS: The floors were stained with 50% Rosewood and then finished with 3 coats of oil based finish. This was before the new VOC laws when oil based finish was still good. We no longer use this type of finish. You can read why in our Free Report: "How To Choose A Hardwood Floor Finish".

Ebony Stained Oak Floors with OSMO Hardwax Oil:

THE CLIENT: Karen and Tom Tomei – Naperville, Illinois

THE JOB: Tom and Karen had old, worn golden oak colored floors and stairs and were looking to update them to a more modern look. They had found some photos of dark floors with hardwax oil on Pinterest and asked us to match them. We were able to give them exactly what they wanted and they were thrilled as you can read from their feedback below...

THE SPECIFICS: We stained the floors Ebony and then finished them with Osmo hardwax oil.

Karen and Tom's Feedback...

When we decided to refinish our floors, we asked around and surfed the internet looking for a company we could trust. We came across Tadas Wood Flooring, a local company here in Naperville. After receiving a quote from another large company, we decided to go with Tadas. He not only came in with a better price, but we liked the idea of a smaller company, dealing with the owner himself. We checked references and both customers gave Tadas a glowing review.

Tadas and his team gave us EXACTLY what we were looking for. The color and the finish are absolute perfection. You have a lot to be proud of. We love our floors!

Our floors were a golden oak, which we were hoping to update to a much darker finish. After showing Tadas photos from Pinterest of the finish we were looking for, Tadas showed us a flooring sample of Ebony with a Hardwax Finish. Although we were nervous about going with such a drastic change, Tadas and his team gave us EXACTLY what we were looking for. The color and the finish are absolute perfection. In addition, his dustless guarantee is just that, dustless. His team was on time and professional each day. Tadas even disposed of the carpeting from our stairs and stained and replaced the molding below the treads and no additional cost.

The change in our wood flooring has brought our home completely up-to-date. The improvement is amazing. We have already recommended Tadas and his crew and will continue to do so. His work was everything we could've hoped for, and more.

Thank you, Tadas, and thanks to your crew. You have a lot to be proud of. We love our floors!

Naperville White Oak Hardwood Refinishing Project:

THE CLIENT: Asked to be withheld – Naperville, Illinois

THE JOB: This client was getting ready to put their house on the market. As you can see from the before pictures below, the hardwood floors need a bit of work to get them presentable. There was an area that needed 6 boards replaced before the white oak was sanded and refinished in the kitchen, entry hallway, dining room and powder room.

THE SPECIFICS: Our 3 coat Pallmann Pal-X96 water based finish system was used.

Custom Checker Stained Rubio Monocoat Floor:

THE CLIENT: Leslie A. – Kenilworth, Illinois

THE JOB: Leslie is an interior designer and she was in the middle of designing her own home in Kenilworth when she called us in to look at her floors. We installed new red oak in the family room to match up to the other floors in the home. She was looking for something extra special in her kitchen and we were happy to have some fun and help her out. After sanding the floors, we laid out a diagonal checkered pattern on the floor and then used two contrasting colors of Rubio Monocoat hardwax oil to finish the floors. We think they look great... more importantly, so does she!

THE SPECIFICS: The Rubio Monocoat colors Leslie chose was Smoke and Oyster.

Leslie's Feedback...

I cannot tell you how amazing Tadas and his team are. They were flexible in working with other subs (painters), his selection of finishes are beautiful and most importantly - HIS WORK IS AMAZING! He takes such pride and has a true passion for transforming your floors into whatever "look" you want.

HIS WORK IS AMAZING! He takes such pride and has a true passion for transforming your floors into whatever "look" you want... I LOVE MY KITCHEN FLOORS!

We live in a 90yr old home and had all of the original floors refinished...as well as new hardwood flooring installed - replacing a carpeted family room...you cannot tell the old from the new.

For the kitchen floors - I requested a "checker board pattern on the diagonal"... I explained I wanted an old weathered look...not fresh painted floors. Honestly, I was waiting for him to push me to use painters for this and him not be happy to do this - WRONG! Tadas was so excited to use an amazing product from Belgium to achieve the "look" I wanted....I LOVE MY KITCHEN FLOORS! and so does every other person who sees them :)

I am an interior designer and I cannot wait to use Tadas again on future projects...I am so lucky that I got to use him in my own home!

THANK YOU TADAS & TEAM!

As you can see from the pictures below (and their testimonial), the floors turned out great.

Tadas is very knowledgeable, professional and competitively priced.

Naperville Hardwood did an excellent job in refinishing our floors. The dark Walnut stain really gave the old floors, new life. Tadas is very knowledgeable, professional and competitively priced.

We will definitely recommend Naperville Hardwood to others.

Glen Ellyn Hardwood Floor Sanding and Refinishing Project:

THE CLIENT: Waterson Family – Glen Ellyn, Illinois

THE JOB: This was a small but fun job. The kitchen had numerous areas that needed to be repaired before we could start sanding and refinishing. We sourced red oak that matched the existing flooring perfectly. Once the repairs were completed we refinished the kitchen, mud room, entry, hallway and a set of stairs. The whole project was about 450sqft.

THE SPECIFICS: The floors were stained with 50% Ebony and then finished with 3 coats of OSMO Hard Wax Oil.

Stained Red Oak Floor Restoration in Berwyn, Illinois:

THE CLIENT: Rosemary – Berwyn, Illinois

THE JOB: Rosemary has a beautiful historic home that was built in 1918. But after many years of use the 92 year old red oak floors needed some sprucing up. There where two areas that needed to be repaired and we sourced old growth red oak to match the original flooring. Once the repairs were finished the floor was sanded, stained and refinished with a high end finish system, bringing it back to life and in better than original condition. Rosemary should get many, many years of use out of her beautiful new/old floors.

THE SPECIFICS: The stain Rosemary chose is Golden Oak. We applied our 3 coat Pallmann Pal-X96 water based commercial grade finish system.

Rosemary's Feedback...

Tadas provided a thorough and very professional estimate, describing all my options. The written estimate provided specific information about the products he uses, which are all high quality.

He made the repairs, sanded, and stained the first day. The second day he applied the base finish and one top coat. The third day he applied the second top coat. The final day he returned to install primed shoe moulding, which I painted to match my woodwork.

I will hire him to do the rest of my maple floors. Wonderful experience - one of the best contractors I have ever used.

Everything went very well and he did exactly what he said he would do. They were very neat and clean. They offer a premium "no dust" cleaning system (at an added cost) but since I was doing other renovations I opted for the standard cleanup. There was very little dust left behind and it was easy to clean afterward.

I will hire him to do the rest of my maple floors. Wonderful experience - one of the best contractors I have ever used.

I got lots of compliments over Thanksgiving!

Grooved Hardwood Floor Restoration in Glen Ellyn:

THE CLIENT: John and Mary Nurse – Glen Ellyn, Illinois

THE JOB: John and Mary had an old, aged and yellowed kitchen hallway and bathroom floor that didn't match their newly installed pre-finished floors installed in all the other rooms in their home. We were asked to come in and see what we could do to restore them before the desicion to rip them out was made.

As you can see in the pictures below, we were able to bring them up to better than new condition so they matched the rest of the floors. It wasn't much fun dealing with all of the big grooves but they turned out great in the end.

THE SPECIFICS: We applied Pallmann-X340 primer and our 3 coat Pallmann Pal-X96 water based finish system to very closely match the look of the existing pre-finished hardwood.

John and Mary's Feedback...

Dear Tadas,

Thank you for the excellent job you and your staff did on restoring our kitchen floor. We first learned about you from your website and were impressed by all the information we could gather before our initial phone call to your business. There was no pressure, just solid answers to basic inquiries. It helped “educate” us on what to expect if we were to work with you.

Your work exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend you to friends and family.

We asked you to match an old, worn kitchen floor with an existing newer wood floor. Before working with you, we were not sure if the job could be accomplished without ripping out the entire kitchen floor and had put this project off for several years! The stain colors were different, the wood quality was different, the plank widths were different... plus the kitchen flooring had grooves!

You professionally and confidently explained the different options available to us and had a clear understanding of what the project entailed. You and your hardworking and efficient staff matched the stain, smoothed the worn patches, and created a floor that blended in well with the rest. Your work exceeded our expectations and we would definitely recommend you to friends and family.

Sincerely,

John and Mary Nurse

Jason Reinike's Feedback...

Dear Future Hard Wood Restorer,

I highly recommend Tadas Hardwood Flooring for any restoration project you may have. I recently purchased a home that was in great need of hardwood floor repair. I Google searched and came up with several companies and had several estimates given. Tadas was the most professional, had the best equipment, had competitive rates, and seemed to be the most informative as well. So we decided to go with him.

The finished product is amazing! I have already recommended them to two of my neighbors as I was so impressed with the floor.

The process went smooth and Tadas fit my project into his schedule. I trusted him and his staff in my home alone for a week to do their work. This was one of many projects that I have had done since the purchase and I can honestly say this was a pleasant experience. The whole process took approximately 5 days and constant contact was maintained throughout the process keeping me informed on a daily basis of what was going on and when they would be there.

The finished product is amazing! The floors came out way better than expected and literally changed the look of the house.

We went from a natural color to a darker red tint. I was incorrect when I figured with refurbishing something old you couldn’t get the type of brand new look we did. We also choose the dustless system and with two days’ worth of sanding I was very impressed with the lack of dust all over the house. Tadas even came by on a Saturday to inspect the finished product and moved out an old refrigerator and installed my new one for me, now that is service!

I have already recommended them to two of my neighbors as I was so impressed with the floor. I would highly recommend Tadas and his crew for any hardwood floor refinishing project you may have and will be using them when it comes time again.

Sincerely,

Jason Reinike

Red Oak Stained Floor in Glen Ellyn:

THE CLIENT: Tim and Brenda – Glen Ellyn, Illinois

THE JOB: This floor was a big mess when we got to it. After years of wear and tear the owners gutted the house and re-did everything – including all the wood floors. We ripped up the old ceramic tile in the kitchen and installed new red oak to match and seamlessly blend in to the surrounding floor. Then the living room, dining room, kitchen, bedrooms and hallway were sanded, stained and refinished to the clients wishes.

THE SPECIFICS: These floors were stained Rosewood and covered with an oil based polyurethane finish.

Ebony Stained Oak Floors with OSMO Hardwax Oil:

THE CLIENT: The Wand Family – Naperville, Illinois

THE JOB: The Wang family had existing hardwood floors in their home but wanted to extend them into the family room. So we laced new hardwood into the existing kitchen floor to provide a seamless expansion for them. Then we sanded down the new and old sections and stained them a custom color that they had chosen from our samples. They floors turned out great and the Wang’s were extremely happy as you can see when you read their feedback below...

THE SPECIFICS: We stained the floors a custom blend of 50% Ebony and 50% Sedona Red and then finished them with commercial grade water-based finish in a satin sheen.

The Wang Families Feedback...

Dear Tadas, Thanks to you and your team for doing such a fantastic job on our hardwood floors! We are very happy with the results and have received many compliments!

You and your team really know what you are doing! We would work with you again in a heartbeat, and will be recommending you to all our family and friends!

The custom color you mixed for us is exactly what we wanted. It made the process of picking a stain color simple when you showed us actual color samples of our exact wood with different stains -- it was very reassuring. We have worked with other hardwood companies in our previous homes, but the process was never this easy and fast. You and your team really know what you are doing! Even our painters have complimented your work, and were impressed when you introduced them to the high-quality, quick-drying stain product you used in our home, which they had never heard of before.

We love the new hardwood you installed in our Family Room. Paul did a great job of lacing it into our existing kitchen floor. Now, it looks like one smooth, seamless floor that has always been there. The original 17-year old hardwood floors look like new! Best of all, the house was very clean when you were done. There was little if any dust left behind from your machines, and even the garage was left exactly as you found it.

Dealing with you and your team was so easy, since everyone was knowledgeable and willing to stop and answer any question I had. We could tell they cared about the quality of the work, and that we were happy with it.

We interviewed 4 different hardwood flooring companies, but chose your company in the end for a few different reasons. Firstly, we liked how you promptly e-mailed us a very professional, detailed estimate listing exactly what products and steps you would be taking. Secondly, your quote was a lot more reasonable than most of the other companies and fit our tight budget. Lastly, the other companies sent sales reps whereas you, Tadas, came out in person and met with us. I like the "what you see is what you get" aspect of working with you. We could reach you directly whenever we needed, we knew exactly what steps/processes you would be following each day, we knew exactly what our floors would look like when you were finished, and in the end you even finished a couple days earlier than we orginally expected!

We would work with you again in a heartbeat, and will be recommending you to all our family and friends! We are so glad we took the chance and went with you and your company.

Thanks again, Tadas & Team, for the impeccable work!

Sincerely,

The Wang Family

Rubio Monocoat Finish on Red Oak:

THE CLIENT: Linda Hunter – Clarendon Hills, Illinois

THE JOB: Linda was our first client that wanted to test out the newly available Rubio Monocoat hardwax oil finish. After repairing some areas that had water damage, we sanded down her 1,100 square foot rift cut red oak floors and buffed on the finish. They turned out great and Linda was very happy with the results as you can see in her feedback to us below...

THE SPECIFICS: We used the Rubio Monocoat “Dark Oak” color.

Linda's Feedback...

Tadas was very responsive to the time I needed him to come give an estimate. He suggested a different finishing technique to us that other floor refinishers did not. He even suggested exposing an area of the floor that probably would have hardwood underneath it. We also needed them to replace some wood that had prior water damage.

I am extremely happy with the way the floors turned out.. I would highly recommend this company as they take great pride in the work they do.

The crew showed up a few minutes early to start sanding on the first day and sanded the entire day. Then again on the second day they showed up early again to start. We chose the Monocoat option which is a more durable finish. I am extremely happy with the way the floors turned out-color and finish. I would highly recommend this company as they take great pride in the work they do.

Great work!

Hardwood Floor Staining and Refinishing in Naperville:

THE CLIENT: Robert Wostratzky – Naperville, Illinois

THE JOB: This Naperville project involved sanding, refinishing and staining a red oak floor in a kitchen, laundry, powder room and hallways. The floors were pretty worn from years of use. One they had been restored they looked brand new again and the client was wrapped.

THE SPECIFICS: Stain was bona, one part red mahogany and 3 parts cherry. Then we used our 3 coat Pallmann Pal-X96 water based finish system.


Click on the images above to enlarge them.

Robert Wostratzky's Feedback...

When my wife and I were remodeling our kitchen, we seriously considered ripping the old floors out and installing new hardwood. There were scratches and imperfections everywhere from furniture being moved and from the pets of previous owners. Ultimately, we decided to save a little money and have the floors refinished. It was the best decision we could have made.

We are extremely happy with the work that was done! It was the best decision we could have made.

After four days of refinishing work, our floor looked brand new. All of the marks from the previous flooring were completely eliminated. Our friends and family were shocked to hear that our flooring had been refinished. Tadas also took the time to create a beautiful stain that matched our new cabinets with the existing trim that was already in place.

We are extremely happy with the work that was done!

Naperville Natural Finished Hardwood Floor Project:

THE CLIENT: Cindy – Naperville, Illinois

THE JOB: Cindy had a kitchen, hallway and powder room in her Naperville home that she wanted to have spruced up. She liked the look of her floors in their natural state so we went with that instead of staining them. As you can see below, they look great!

THE SPECIFICS: We applied our 3 coat Pallmann Pal-X96 water based finish system.

Cindy's Feedback...

We had approximately six quotes come back for refinishing our existing hardwood floors. We decided to go with Tadas Wood Flooring because of his professionalism and based on positive references and reviews. Also, his prices were comparable to the other quotes that we received. Tadas was always prompt with returning emails and calls and answering questions. His team worked efficiently and were polite. I got a real sense of trust.

We absolutely love the way the floors turned out, I would definitely recommend Tadas to friends and neighbors.

Our biggest fear of starting a hardwood restoration project was the thought of all of the dust and mess. We opted to go with the 101% dustless package, and were very happy with the results. The dust seemed well contained and minimal. The rooms were all sealed off, as well as the cabinetry. The process took approximately 3 days, and we are now enjoying our beautiful hardwood. We absolutely love the way the floors turned out, and are already anticipating to use Tadas again when we are ready to install hardwood in the other rooms. I would definitely recommend Tadas to friends and neighbors.

Naperville Red Oak Sanding, Staining and Refinishing Project:

THE CLIENT: Mike and Jenn Buedel – Naperville, Illinois

THE JOB: This was a red oak floor that flowed from the entry into the kitchen, dining, hallway, powder room and up the stairs to the second level. The floors were pretty worn and the owners wanted to freshen them up and stain them a darker color. We installed flush mount vents to blend in with the flooring as well.

THE SPECIFICS: The red oak floors were stained rosewood and our favorite finish system – Pall-X 96 – was used with a satin sheen.

Dear Tadas,

We are definitely happy with your work and love the outcome!

Since moving into our home 4 years ago, our hardwood floors had been a concern. They were worn, scratched, and not the color we would prefer. When we finally decided to "take the plunge" and have the floors restored, we weren't exactly sure where to go.

They were easy to work with, reasonably priced, and more than anything else clearly took pride in their work. Great experience from start to finish!

When we came across the Naperville Hardwood website, we were impressed by its detail and comprehensive explanation of the process and decided to call for an estimate. While we had a few different estimates, we felt Tadas was the best choice. He walked us through the process and answered our many questions with patience! When the project began the entire team was extremely professional, prompt, and friendly. Their attention to detail was wonderful.

Despite the fact that our entire first floor was being refinished, the impact on our daily activities at home were minimal. When we were having some trouble determining the exact stain color (going from light to much darker), Tadas brought in multiple samples, pictures, etc. to help us get a clear idea of what would look good in our space.

Ultimately, we are extremely happy with the results. The color turned out great and the floors look absolutely beautiful! I would definitely recommend Naperville Hardwood and Tadas' team to anyone. They were easy to work with, reasonably priced, and more than anything else clearly took pride in their work.

Finally, when our puppy decided to chew a portion of our newly finished floors a week after they were finished, Tadas was very accommodating to come complete our repair during the very busy weeks before the holidays! Great experience from start to finish!
