We've used Doug for many projects, both in our home and in our businesses (businesses in large, historic homes and an old home we've restored). Doug is the go-to guy for all our hardwood flooring - both installation and restoration. Over the years Doug has installed new hardwood flooring in our home - two large main floor rooms. I've had him refinish old floors, and some - in the 1870's home we restored - were painted. I had little hope for "beautiful" but it turned out like the cover of a Country Living magazine. As other reviews have stated he's absolutely meticulous. The job site is perfectly cleaned each day. He'll leave nothing in "passable" condition, insisting instead on pristine and perfect. A few areas of some floors had missing pieces and sections very damaged - he repaired everything. You'll absolutely love working with him. He knows wood, he knows finishes, he knows everything there is to know about what will work in your home, and what should be avoided. He stands behind everything he does. I have personally recommended Doug to so many - everyone is thrilled with the work. He does every job himself - you'll always get consistent and guaranteed quality when you go with Beckman Hardwood Floors, Inc. Seriously....call this guy. You'll always be so happy you did.
As described above, service is perfect. DO plan on moving everything out of your room, and probably being out of the house. Opening and closing doors when Doug is working isn't appreciated as dust and debris can impact the finish. DO plan on more time than you thought to stay off the floors, put rugs and furniture back, even walking on your floor. Keep the pets at your neighbor's house or completely restrict the area. DON'T hurry the process. As anxious as you are to get your life back to normal, if you can resist the urge to put it all back too soon you'll be rewarded with a hard, impermeable finish that will look perfect for years to come. It's amazing to watch the transformation of a space by someone so committed to a quality job. Not many people understand hardwood flooring like Doug.
