Beautiful new floor 1/16 inch below old ugly floor
I have a small home in Buckhead with 70 year old hardwood floors that were in terrible condition. A friend recommended Chastain Wood Floors and I gave them a call. They came out and looked over my floors. They didn't hype or oversell, they talked straight about the condition of my floors and what I could expect. They emailed a job estimate within a few days defining what they would do, and it was reasonable.
The work went well, they showed up when they said they would, which I REALLY appreciated. They removed tile from a front entry area and wove new hardwood into the existing floor. They removed linoleum from the kitchen, leveled the subfloor and installed new oak floors. Then they sanded all the floors, sampled stains for me to choose and finished with 3 coats of poly. One thing that was "above and beyond" bears mentioning. One afternoon, the crew arrived right on time to apply a second coat of poly. They ended up waiting almost 5 hours till the plumbers and appliance people were finished and worked late into the evening to keep my remodel on schedule. And they didn't complain or make me feel bad about it.
Our new floors and refinished old floors look great. I find myself looking at my floors all the time. I never knew such beautiful floors were already in my house, 1/16th of an inch below the surface, waiting to be revealed. My only regret is that I didn't do this 25 years ago when I bought the house.
