We believe in quality in every step. The first step is sometimes the most important. We want you to know exactly what to expect as we begin to work together. Communication and attention to detail are critical to keep you informed and to make sure your expectations are met. That’s why we try to provide as much information as possible at the start of every project. Whether you’re a contractor who does this all the time, or a first-time home-buyer, we want to make sure we’re all on the same page so everything runs smoothly and you are happy.
Here is a list of things to expect from us before the start of each project:
- Sample Products (if necessary to help you decide)
- A Detailed Estimate (may include different options you’re considering)
- Overview of Scope of Work to be Completed
- Timeline for the Entire Project
- List of Project Expectations and Guidelines
We strive to keep the lines of communication open. We understand that schedules change and we ask that you do your best to communicate any changes with us as soon as possible as well.
Refinishing used to be a messy and inconvenient process. Not anymore with our dustless refinishing equipment. We use a state-of-the-art dust containment system that keeps all the dust from the floor trapped in our hoses instead of flying about your home or business. We use a Bona® Dust Collection System, which is regarded as one of the industries best. This is advantageous for the property owner because there is no mess, plus there is less airborne dust that could end up in the finish of your new floor. Clean up is also easy and only takes about 30 minutes. Refinishing is quick, convenient and easy with our dust containment system. Click for more details on refinishing your wood floors.
Clean and Coat
Over time, the shine and durability of a wood floor will diminish. It used to be that the only way to restore its beauty was by refinishing your floor. Finally, there’s a way to make your wood floors look great at a fraction of the cost of refinishing – Clean & Coat. Kimminau Floor Company has partnered with a leading manufacturer to develop this state-of-the-art process. Clean and Coat removes surface scratches and revitalizes dull floors. Because of our commitment to the latest technology, we can bring you this process for much less than refinishing and still make it dust-free, odor free, and fast.
The Clean & Coat 3-step process features a deep cleaning that can remove dirt, grease, contaminants and normal grime. We then apply a bonding coat followed by a protective coating that can help restore the shine. The great thing about this process is that it is not only low odor, but the drying time is about 2 hours. Since there is no dust, there is no mess in the house – just shiny, clean, new-looking wood floors. It’s easier than having your carpets cleaned! And because the process is so fast and easy, we can offer same day service. Click here for more details.
With our years of experience, there’s not a floor out there that we haven’t worked with. We’ve worked with all types of hardwood products, including solid and engineered planks, wide planks, bamboo, cork and more. We can install hardwoods over concrete, plywood, and even radiant heat. We have installed custom floors including borders, laser-cut medallions and mosaics. We’ve replicated historic floors, used distressing techniques and even hand scraped floors. There’s really nothing we can’t install. When we install hardwood on staircases, we team up with some of the area’s finest finish carpenters. Their skills help us complete the job quickly which saves you money. Once the installation is complete, we will finish your new staircase and customize the stain color so that your new staircase matches the wood floor.
Whether you need to extend an existing hardwood floor into an adjacent room or your floors were damaged by water, at Kimminau, we’re experts at renovation and restoration. Our professional staff can provide an on-site assessment that will allow help you decide how to best handle your flooring situation. Sometimes cupping from water damage can be sanded out. Other times replacement is necessary. We can “lace in” new hardwoods to existing hardwood floors, sand (using our dustless sanding system) and refinish the floor so it’s a seamless match. We have years of experience working with local restoration companies. We can make the proper recommendations to bring your hardwoods back to life in the most cost-effective way. Please visit our gallery for more examples.
Because of our commitment to customer service, we go above and beyond, providing additional services that other hardwood floor companies simply don’t do. For instance, we move toilets/pedestals and replace the wax rings. We pull the base-shoe around the perimeter of the room and install new base-shoe that is either primed or stained and coated. We install flush frame vents, move kitchen appliances and contents and remove carpets, hardwood, tile and linoleum. Please click for more details on floor restoration.
