One of our last projects. Curved custom staircase being re-done in hardwood (previously carpeted steps).

 

solid 3/4 maple risers topped with curved nosings

no wood filler on those steps...

not even a bit- the fit is as good as the finish. and the finish is impeccable...

a parting shot from the top...

and the final one from the bottom.


A pictorial in feathering & finishing

We get a fair share of calls from customers that inquire about extending their existing hardwood floors but are a bit hesitant due to the unforseen results.

Those next few pictures should take the guesswork out of the whether the work will turn out uniformly or not:

Stage one: the existing hardwood is cut out in a staggered pattern in preparation for the new.

Stage two: new hardwood is "laced" or "feathered" into existing hardwood extending the floor.

Stage three: at this point the whole floor gets the usual treatment- sanding and staining.

Final stage: standard 3 coats with buffing after first two. At this point the floor is finished and does not show differences between old and freshly installed and finished parts.


Why Choose Us?

The following few few pictures  were taken of a floor that we initially quoted but customer decided to have it refinished by others. This was the result- note stain overlaps.

The customer called us and inquired about re-doing the above.

We took it on...

And sanded the freshly stained floor...

And applied the stain our way...

And that is how it turned out when we did it...compare with first two pics and see the difference!
