Quote marks icon - Ayoub N&H - Service. Done Better.

We hired Ayoub to refinish the hardwood floors in our 1945-era home. As a result, our oak floors look brand new. I highly recommend their services. They provided a free quote and suggested doing our banister to match the floors and adding molding to the stairs, both of which were great suggestions. They were on time and completed the floors on schedule.

They use a dustless sanding process and moved all our big furniture. They truly brought our 50-year-old floors back to life. The floors look new, and we couldn’t be happier!

Yes, to minimize the transfer of dust, plastic is placed in doorways and other areas to protect the rest of your home.

You will have access to areas not being refinished. All areas being refinished cannot be walked on until the finish has dried to an acceptable level.

Depending on polyurethane and size of area. Refinishing can take up to 3-5 days. The lead technician can provide a more exact timeline once work is started.

Yes, all molding will be required to be removed and replaced to match the stain or painted white to match the base.

Yes, an additional charge may apply depending on amount of wood putty needed. Wood putty is not recommended for separations larger than a specific size.

Since our hardwood refinishing machines can only get so close to the walls, the hardwood floors around the perimeter is sanded by hand.

Up to four selections from our stain supplier (Minwax) can be applied to the floor after the initial sanding.

If you decide to purchase and supply your own stain color, it must comply with our product quality standards.

Our polyurethane is made by Masterline, which has proven to have the best, longest lasting results.

Water based – up to 3 hours between coats
Oil based – up to 18 hours between coats

Yes, we offer satin, semi-gloss and high gloss.

Industry standard is 2 coats. More can be applied upon request. Ask your sales representative for more details.

Oil based wood finish conditions the wood grain which results in a softer feel. Oil based finish is also more durable and protects the wood better against normal wear and tear.
Water based wood finish dries quicker in between coats and has lower VOC’s but is not as durable as oil based wood finish. These types of hardwood floor finishes come in satin, semi-gloss, and high gloss.

Dry typically means it can be walked on with light traffic. When a hardwood floor finish is fully cured, it means that residual solvents leave the film, as it begins crosslinking with oxygen in the air, it develops strength, toughness, and abrasion resistance.

Hardwood floors can typically cure within 7 days, however, a full cure can take up to 30 days.

Our dustless sanding captures about 80% of the dust that is created, a light film may be present on other surfaces.

Furniture will be moved to the closest room available that is not being refinished. If your entire house is being refinished, arrangements can be made to clear house prior to the start of the job.

No, the removal of these items will be required to be moved from the area by the customer prior to our arrival.

Sealer – provides a seal to any stain applied to the wood before the finish (polyurethane) is applied.
Polyurethane – Provides a smooth and soft finish to the floors protecting it from wear, foot traffic, and spills.

Screen and coat – Etch the polyurethane finish, allowing us to re-apply polyurethane for a newer look.

Refinishing – removes both polyurethane finish, stain, and small layer of hardwood. Removing most damage going past the finish into the wood.

Depending on the color you prefer. Lighter stains require less stain (One Coat), Darker stains require additional applications (two to three).

No. Spot refinishing will show too much of a difference in color, look and sheen between the refinished spot and the rest of the room.

No. since a new layer of hardwood, stain and finish will be used, the look will change between the two connecting areas.

Refinish all connecting areas or install thresholds to separate areas.

The age difference between new and existing hardwood, and the stain selection plays a big part in how the hardwood will match to the repaired area. The new hardwood floor will be the same species of wood and will be “toothed in” for a consistent look, however depending on the age of the wood you may notice a difference.
