Comments: Mate did an amazing job restoring our 15 y.o. Hardwood floors. There were no surprises and the work was exactly as he explained it would be. Minimal dust, minimal interuption to our lives, and excellent results. We were able to come home in the evenings and didn't need to replace our base boards after the work was done. He also had a huge amount of positive reviews which was a big influence on our choice. His work was everything we expected and more.

Comments: Mate did an exceptional job on my parents floors. He sanded, stained, put clear coat on and buffed them. He came back the next morning to put another clear coat on. He was very punctual and professional throughout the entire process. No mess in the house and very clean work. Price was very reasonable for the top of the line quality he provides. Would recommend him to anyone!

Comments: The contractor was excellent. Meta explained what was included in the quote and answered all of my questions. He gave me the time frame in which the work would take place. Once the work started he worked diligently and answered any questions I had. He gave me the time he would be at my home each day and he was there. He let the room that the work took place in neat and clean. Very professional. Excellent job.

Comments: We had two people out for quotes. One was a big business and the other Mate. The bigger bussines quoted us SIGNIFICANTLY higher than Mate. We ended up going with Mate not only because the cost, but he genuinely seems like an honest, great guy when you meet him. You will understand if you meet him. He worked around our weird vacation schedule and did an amazing job! My wife still comments on how it feels like a new home when we walk into the rooms he refinished.

Comments: Mate was phenomenal! He redid the floors in the whole house and they look absolutely beautiful! Mate showed up when he said he would and he worked hard and completed the job when he said it would be done. I?m convinced I could not have found anyone who could do a better job than Mate. I get compliments on my beautiful floors every time someone sees them for the first time! And, the cost was very reasonable! I feel like I definitely got more than what I payed for.

Comments: We are more than pleased with the work Mate did for us. He was very professional and friendly, answered all of our questions and finished the job in the time frame that he promised. The floors look fantastic. We recommend Mate without reservation.

Comments: We were very pleased with Mate's work. He was super easy to work with - he came out to look at the floors, measure the rooms, and gave us a reasonable quote on the spot. He was flexible with us (we had a unique time frame because of the timing of the sale/purchase of our old/new home) and -- most importantly -- the results were great. Professional, flexible, dependable - all things you want in someone you hire for a job like this! Would definitely recommend!

Comments: Working with Mate was an absolute pleasure. He arranged a visit to our place for an estimate quickly and provided a very fair price. He arrived each day at the agreed upon time and completed the project on schedule and at the quoted price. The previous owner of our home had done some nonstandard work that raised issues, but Mate was able to help us identify solutions that ended up looking great without increasing the price. We also had some very large pet stains on the floor, but Mate recommended a wood stain that covered them up and left the floors looking beautiful. I cannot recommend Mate and M.F. Hardwood strongly enough.

Comments: Mate did a wonderful job on our reclaimed barn flooring! He said he'd never done reclaimed wood before, but was up for the challenge. He was concerned that there would still be a lot of imperfections when I explained to him that's exactly the point! We wanted it to look like barn flooring but to be able to walk on it without getting splinters. The look is beyond what we expected and Mate was so pleasant to have around - every review I read about him is so true - if you need floor refinishing, he's the guy to call!! Can't say enough good things.

Comments: Mate met with me right away to review our project and then when hired, showed up on time to repair, renovate and add new wood to a 165 year-old wood floor. It came out beautiful and sturdy.

Comments: Mate was very easy to work with. He is the only contractor who comes when he says he's coming, he is very clean, his work is superb, and you can't beat the value. He is trustworthy, customer driven, and communicates well. I will always recommend Mate to anyone who asks. He took floors that were abused by the previous owners of my house, and made them look brand new. EVERYONE who sees them are extremely impressed.

Comments: Mate (pronounced Ma-te) did an amazing job refinishing our hardwood floors throughout our house. We recently purchased this home, built in 1922, and ripped up all the carpet to find hardwood underneath. Some rooms were better than others, but they were in need of some serious attention. Mate gave us a very competitive quote and was friendly and responsive to any attempts to contact him, and best of all, he did an absolutely fantastic job. The floors look brand new!

Comments: Mate is a true professional. He is one of the nicest young men I have had the opportunity to work with. He is punctual, knowledgable, professional and affordable. Mate refinished an entire second floor plus a living room, 2 bedrooms, hallway and a set of stairs in less than a week. The floors are beautiful. We will be using him again.

Comments: Excellent job! My hardwood floors are absolutely beautiful. During the process, Mate repaired and replaced a large section of hardwood in my kitchen and did a excellent job blending the old and new. You can't tell difference. It was a pleasure working with you.

Comments: I was not going to be around when Mate came to do the floors. When I returned from Chicago I was delighted as to what an excellent job had been done to my floors. I left the choice of stain up to Mate and was pleasantly surprised as to how it all came out. Also very clean and dust free. Thank you M.F. Hardwood

Comments: Mate is absolutely wonderful! Our floors look more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. He refinished every room in our house and we are beyond thrilled with the results. He was polite and punctual and even left the house cleaner than it was before he arrived. Most importantly the floors look amazing! My husband and I refinished the floors in our old house so we know that it is a difficult job and what kind of results to expect. His work far exceeded our expectations!

Review Date: 01/15/2014 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Believe what everyone else has said. Mate was punctual, polite, hardworking and affordable. I had 13 stairs and a 3'x6' landing refinished (no risers). Mate arrived at 08:00am and was finished by 14:30. The results are beautiful.

Comments: Mate is a very professional young man who has been doing floors for years. He worked with his father, Andrew, and has been with his own company for about 8 years. He does great work at a fair and reasonable price. My floor looks great and I couldn't be more pleased. I would recommend him to anyone (and have already referred my niece).

Review Date: 11/12/2013 | Author: Lyudmila B.

Comments: We are very glad that we choose Mate to refinish our wood floor. We liked his personality and professionalism. He was punctual and arrived on time each day; if he promised to call, he called on exact time. He did good job and price was good too. And (it was very important for us!) he told us that we can pay money only when all job will done. We can recommend his work to anyone.

Comments: Hardworking,on time,professional would use again...brought my 100 year old painted pine floors back to life and they look beautiful

Comments: From the initial estimate to the final coat of finish MF Hardwood provided excellent customer service. Mate arrived promptly on time each day, explained the process thoroughly so we knew what to expect. He was able to fix some flaws in the floors and match stain to an existing stair railing. There was virtually not dust or mess as a result of the refinishing. We are thrilled with our newly refinished floors and highly recommend MF Hardwood.
