I just remodeled a 1300 ft2 home in Marysville. Thirty year old wall to wall carpet had to go!
Vladimir installed 3/4"" Solid White Oak tongue and groove flooring, sanded it and coated it with 2 coats of Swedish finish. He also ripped out a carpeted staircase and replaced it with solid Oak risers and treads. It looks beautiful!!!
But the best part of this contract was the price! Vladimir did the job for 1/3 the price that the Home Depot quoted!!!
If you are thinking of ripping out old carpet, check out VM Hardwood Floors. For a few pennies more than another crappy carpet, you can have an old school Ukrainian craftsman install a beautiful wood floor.
