OUR MISSION – to be the #1 contractor in North Texas, providing and installing genuine custom 3/4″ oak hardwood flooring. You can now get “The Real Thing” for about the same price as a decent engineered hardwood product. This flooring will last a lifetime, and can be repaired, restained, refinished very easily in the future. Your choice of wood (2″, 3″, 5″ widths), handscraped or smooth, stain color, and finish (satin, shiny, flat etc). Most jobs take 6-10 days total. The following images are installations we have recently completed in the DFW Metroplex. Call us today for a free consultation and quote.
We accept credit cards for hardwood flooring installations.
After removing the existing carpet and pad, we nailed down a plywood subfloor with moisture barrier. We then nailed down 3/4″ solid oak planks.
Woodfiller was applied to imperfect areas. The surface was then machine sanded, and scraped by hand (ACROSS the grain in this photo). 2 coats
of oil based stain were applied for a deep lustrous color. Finally 2 coats of satin polyurethane were applied for this elegant new custom floor.
These before / after photos show the original tiled entry way. We demolished all the tile and extended the new custom
hardwoods into the dining area and kitchen. Note, we also replaced all the baseboards and repainted.
We also install solid oak stair treads to replace carpet or old wood. Typically the vertical risers pieces are matching wood, or painted white. Most times we remove the existing spindles (balusters), install the new wood treads, and then replace the spindles. As an option we can provide and install a variety of wrought iron spindles.
These may be the most beautiful floors we have ever installed. The wood is Natural Acacia, sanded and smoothed with a satin polyurethane finish. Unbelievably gorgeous and hard wearing. The customer is completely delighted, and so are we !!! 🙂
These 60 year old hardwoods were sanded and refinished, and we also added new hardwoods to other rooms which EXACTLY matched the old !! Seriously, you cannot tell where the old hardwoods finished and the new ones begin. The wood was handscraped WITH the grain and a high gloss oil based polyurethane final finish coat was applied.
In this project, we demolished a large quantity of old 70’s marble tile, and replaced it with new 3.25″ handscraped red oak hardwoods plus travertine tile for the main entrance and dining area. The new flooring definitely makes the home feel more peaceful and welcoming.
This major remodel included opening up walls in the entire living, dining and kitchen areas. After removing the old carpet and flooring we installed a new
plywood subfloor and moisture barrier, and installed solid 3.25″ oak hardwoods. In this case, we hand scraped WITH the grain for a smoother look.
These before / after images show we removed the wall between the den and dining room. We also moved the door to the right of
the original fireplace. The new genuine hand scraped hardwoods are a massive improvement on the old parquet flooring !!
The left image shows new unfinished hardwoods being handscraped (with the grain in this case). We laid down 4 color choices
for the client (sample patches). The right image shows the final product which is “Coffee Brown” finished with satin polyurethane.
So this is a very interesting before / after comparison ….. the original stairs had carpet with white stair edge trim, and also wood spindles. We removed the carpet and all wood trim, and installed new 1″ solid oak full width stair treads stained to match the new floors. The vertical stair riser pieces were added and painted white semigloss for a contrasting ‘pop’ !! Finally we replaced the wood spindles with custom wrought iron balusters. The wood banister rails were sanded and refinished in the same stain and satin finish. A beautiful job by our crews 🙂
We remodeled an entire 4000 sq’ home recently. Part of the project was to replace all the carpet with new handscraped hardwoods. The left image shows the dining room, which has already been scraped and the stain color is being applied. The right image shows the finished large living room. In this case the wood was handscraped ACROSS the grain for a more ‘distressed’ look. We applied 2 coats of satin polyurethane for the final finish.
As part of a whole house remodel, this 1950’s home was modernized by opening up walls, adding new kitchen cabinets and installing new custom oak hardwoods throughout. Very tasteful, and the new flooring will last a lifetime 🙂
