Testimonials

Alex refinished our century and a half old pine floors with knowledge and care. He paid special attention to some worn high traffic areas that made a great difference in the outcome. The floors look great! During a kitchen renovation we had Alex back to repair some challenging areas that became exposed by the renovation process. The results were once again very successful. We highly recommend Alex for his workmanship, professionalism, and dependability.

Alex installed a floor, and refaced a staircase in oak. The work was done quickly, and professionally. I am very happy with the workmanship.

We are very happy with Alex’s work. After he finished this job we got amazing feedback from our friends. This floor was very red in the beginning and wanted to make it a darker brown. Alex didn’t disappoint, in addition to the refinish we asked to have the marble insert/transition that was very builder looking. We asked if he could make a transition that would flow better. Alex sourced the materials and created the frame finished transition. I would recommend Alex to anyone. I can say with confidence as we are having him do another floor and possibly stairs now too… as he is doing this now too 🙂

Alex was referred to us by a flooring supplies store owner. We felt comfortable with the referral considering the source, little did we know however how totally impressed we would be with the end result. Alex was responsive, professional, very reasonably priced and above all, his workmanship was second to none. The job involved re-sanding and finishing an existing floor installed in 1986 as well as matching and expanding that area with new hardwood in two adjoining rooms. The result is amazing… you cannot distinguish between the original area and the new. Can you see a difference in this picture? Neither can we! We could not be happier with the result and are happy to recommend A.F. Flooring to anyone and everyone.

We are so happy with our floors and can’t tell you how many compliments we’ve received, especially from those who saw the floors beforehand. Nobody can believe it’s the same floor! It looks amazing…one of the best decisions we made for our new house. Thank you again Alex for your all of your hard work and patience with us throughout the decision making process.

I can’t recommend Alex’s work more highly. He really knows his stuff, and his workmanship is the best I have seen, especially with site finished flooring. I am not a big fan of pre-finished flooring with the micro bevel edges because there always seems to be a small space between where dirt and stuff can be captured. There has been or we have put in hardwood in almost every house I have lived in (presently house number 6) and the hardwood floors and installation jobs I like best are the site finished projects as there are almost no noticeable gaps/spaces.

 

Alex’s work seems more like art, true craftsmanship versus just an installation job and yet his pricing is good value and very competitive. His quotes are clear, and he sticks by them without surprises. I have a policy of getting a minimum of 3 quotes for a job and when I did so for my hardwood, his quote was very competitive and actually slightly cheaper when factoring in an “apples vs apples” comparison. However, the real value of selecting Alex and AF Wood floors is when you see the extreme quality of the finished product. You can also be assured Alex stands behind his work. When he did our entire main floor there was a board that had an imperfection due to some kind of debris that got into the finish coat. Alex offered to spot fix the board but if we were not 100% happy, he would redo that entire section. His repair was very good, and my wife was happy; however, as I am a bit of an extreme perfectionist Alex could tell that I wasn’t 100% satisfied so without any discussion he simply said “…I want you to be happy, I can see you are not sure, so I am just going to redo this entire section” and he did. The result was the refinished section was perfect and Alex ensured we were 100% satisfied. I don’t think of Alex as a “flooring guy” he is more like a “Flooring Master”.

 

I am sorry to see his business moving out to the west coast, but I know his new clients will be very lucky to have chosen him and his work will more than meet their expectations.
