We had at least six people out to examine our project. The problem was that we had wood mixed with carpet in the same rooms. And the wood had been put in place raw, hand scraped, and hand finished. Everyone who looked at the project said they could not match the old floor so we could not replace the carpet without replacing all the wood as well. Enter Ben Kimminau...this guy offered a solution to lay new raw wood in the carpeted areas and then sand out the scraping and stain so it would all match. In other words, old wood laying right next to new wood. Scary, right? It’s done. It’s amazing.
We’ve been living in the basement for two weeks while they completed the renovation. Today, Ben’s wife showed up to pull all the tape, vacuum all the baseboards, wipe down all of the dust, and leave us with clean space that is ready for furniture. Then she handed me a cleaning kit with a lint-free mop and Kimminau’s recommended private-labeled cleaning solution. I have to say, I’m blown away by this last part. I’ve had a lot of companies work on my houses over the years. No one ever sent in a pro clean crew at the end.
People who know me know I don’t do product or company endorsements very often (ok, unless it’s restaurants...I love my food), but this company has just impressed the hell out of me. The owner assessed our problem, solved it, provided a professional, itemized quote in three days, sent daily appointment reminders when they would be in the house, and never made me wait more than an hour when I emailed with questions. And the floors are beautiful. I could not be more pleased.
