Traditional split-level home
read moreThe homeowners of this traditional split-level home in Woods Cross decided it was time for a more modern update. The kitchen cabinets had already been painted grey. The traditional vertical stair rail is being replaced with a modern horizontal metal rail. We extended the maple floor into the living room, which had been carpeted, to have the wood flowing throughout the entire level. We also did maple treads and white risers down to the family room. The homeowners chose a light, cool brown tone, which was a dramatic change from the very yellow color of the natural maple floors they had previously.
Shaw's Ginger Oak is gorgeous in
read moreIt's sad when it happens, but hardwood floors can have an "end of life". The young couple in this Rose Park home were hoping to refinish their hardwood floors, but they were too thin to do so. We discussed the options of installing new wood floors and vinyl plank floors. When considering the new puppy and the likelihood that the house may become a rental property, they decided the LVP was the best option for them. Shaw's Ginger Oak is gorgeous in their home! Updating this Sandy home included taking the wood floors from a warm brown to a cool brown.
Extended Red Oak Floors
read moreWe just finished our portion of the remodel in this character home in Sugarhouse. Working with the existing red oak floors in the kitchen, we extended the wood floors into the living room, hall, lower landing, staircase and upper landing and sanded everything to match. Another great job by Matt and Jose! We are still working! We are sanitizing our equipment in between jobs and are washing our hands frequently. My guys generally work alone, so we are not exceeding any group limits. If you are stuck at home and are tired of looking at your tired wood floors, please give us a call!
Loba Invisible Protect
read moreWhen I first met these homeowners in 2014, their original hardwood floors were too thin to refinish. We applied a coat of finish to the floors to buy them some time to save for the full remodel. Well, spring of 2020 was finally that time! We removed the old wood floors and replaced them with new, narrow plank white oak to honor the age of the home. However, we finished the floors with Loba Invisible Protect, which is designed to give the floors great protection while maintaining the raw wood look.
read moreElegant Hardwood Floors was recommended to us and they did not disappoint. Fabulous customer service from the bid to the completion of the job. We had new hardwood blended into existing hardwood and then the whole job was sanded, stained, . Thank you Blythe for the wonderful review - we enjoyed working with you and Dean! Thank you for appreciating Will's workmanship as he is truly wonderful to work with! I am so glad your friend pushed you to at least try some gray stains - the subtle gray is a blend of traditional, modern, and weathered looks that works beautifully in your home!
read moreThe new owners of this home in Bountiful were not crazy for the dark red tone of the existing prefinished, hand-scraped, solid maple floors. We were able to sand the floors flat, applying a durable water-based sealer and water-based finish, allowing the floors to remain as light as possible and the character of the wood to come through. This house is moving in a brighter and more modern direction! Updating this Sandy home included taking the wood floors from a warm brown to a cool brown. Aged barrel cut the red tone of the red oak floors, but still left some of the brown tones coming through along with the gray tones of the stain to provide a nice balance with the gray walls.
