"Of all the contractors I’ve worked with, Sean’s professionalism and attention to detail really stand out. He has a passion for what he does and it really shows. I hired him to lay wood flooring throughout the top level of my home and I was extremely happy with the job he did from start to finish. The price was very reasonable, the work was top notch, and Sean was very easy to work with from planning out the materials, all the way through the finishing touches. He’ll be my go-to guy for my next project and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone."


Mike Kotecki

"Sean did a very thorough job of evaluating our hardwood floor project, providing a detailed bid and providing information about all of the products and techniques he would use during the work.  He provided a work schedule which he followed and the project was completed on time.  The floors turned out beautiful and I highly recommend him to whomever may need a competent, professional hard wood floor refinisher."

Nicole Wood-Poli,

Taylor Property Management

" SJ Hardwood Flooring just completed a project refinishing of the hardwood
floors in my home.  The floors needed to be completely sanded and the old
finish removed since we wanted a different color.  Sean was incredibly easy
to work with.  Since we were not on the area during the project he sent me
samples and communicated via phone and e-mail to make all the decisions.  He
was consistently prompt, responsive and very professional.  His estimate of
how long the project would take and the costs were right on target.  Sean
clearly took pride in the work and wanted to make sure it was done right.
We are extremely happy with the finished product and would highly recommend
Sean and SJ Hardwood Flooring."
