Having lived in the Fox Valley, there are a couple of places I like to visit when I work in Neenah, One of them is Timshel Cafe. It has this unique feel and a vibe of the old mixed with the new. The exposed brick and high ceilings creates a great atmosphere! Another of my favorite things to do is get out and walk through the parks that are close to the water. My brother and sister-in-law used to live in the Neenah neighborhood, and we’d enjoy taking their dog for a walk in Riverside Park. During the summer months in particular, it was such a peaceful setting watching the sun set behind all of the sailboats that were anchored in the marina. Neenah has always been a special place for me, so I was thrilled when I was contacted to refinish floors in a historic house that I used to walk by every time I was in the Neenah area.
These wood floors that we refinished in Neenah were in pretty rough shape. These clients had just bought the house and wanted to give the wood floors a facelift. As you can see, the floors were in really rough shape and worn completely through the finish in places. After talking with the clients, they told me that previous owners of the house had allowed their kids to skate on the floors and play hockey! The clients wanted the floors to have a rich dark tone to them, so we created a custom color that went well with their decor and tied in with the existing wood color. You can see how having their wood floors refinished transformed this space!
These clients had built this house in Neenah 20 years ago and had decided to add on to their existing red oak floors. We ended up removing some of the existing wood flooring so that we could feather, or tooth back, in the new flooring into the old to create a seamless transition between the old and new floor. Once we had all of the hardwood installed, we then sanded the floor and finished it with a natural oil sealer and two coats of a commercial finish. As you can see, there is a seamless transition between the old and new wood.
These worn-out red oak bedroom floors had seen better days. They were in a couple of bedrooms and hadn’t been protected from the furniture sliding around, which had caused some dents and gouges in some of the wood. Once we sanded the floors, we stained and sealed them, completing the transformation. You can see how beautiful the once worn down floors became after they were refinished. So if your red oak floors look worn out, it may be time to have your wood floors refinished.
We had the opportunity to work on this historic house in downtown Neenah. The house had recently been sold and the new owners decided to restore it. Here you can see that the floor had some sanding imperfections and was in need of being refinished. We had done some previous work for one of their friends and they loved the look of her floors. We refinished the floors using Rubio Monocoat, which gave the floors a unique appearance in both look and feel.
These stairs were in desperate need of refinishing. As you can see, they were pretty worn out from years of traffic walking up and down them. Now it may not look like a big project, but stairs are very labor intensive. All corners and other areas that the sander can’t reach need to be hand scraped and then sanded by hand. We also had to color match the stairs to the existing trim, which is difficult in and of itself as stain matching is done completely by eye. You can see, once they’re all refinished they look stunning!

If you live outside of the Neenah area, check out the areas we also service. We would love to transform your space too!
One of the many things I enjoy about my job is transforming spaces through refinishing and restoring the wood floors. In my eyes, wood floors are more than just a job, they are a true passion of mine. This wood floor refinishing project in Stevens Point is one such example. My clients had recently bought the house, but did not care for the outdated golden color of the floors, which was very popular from mid-90’s through early 2000’s. The trend at that time was to have everything, from trim to doors and cabinets, done in a golden oak color. From a design point, matching all these wood surfaces does not make features stand out, and can thus make spaces look smaller. However, now that homeowners have moved away from that trend, it allows for the wood floor to create contrast and compliment the features of the space instead of just blending in. To start this particular transformation, we first put down some stain options for the homeowners to see and get a feel for how it would look in their space.
After they decided on the color, we started the wood floor refinishing process. These floors had some problems that needed to be corrected from the last time they were sanded. In all wood floors, there is both a spring and winter grain in the wood planks. If not sanded properly, the machine can pull out the spring wood as it sands the grain, which then causes the wood floor to have a slight “dish”. This is most prominently found in wood floors that are not as dense, like the oak floors seen here. To correct this problem, we started sanding at a slight angle to remove these imperfections from the floor. In addition, we also noticed some discoloration in the flooring. Discoloration can be caused by various factors, with the most common one being the exposure to UV rays from the sun. Other contributing factors can be if area rugs are used in the space, or even if the particular finish is UV sensitive. Over time, wood flooring will naturally change color from the exposure of the sun and its UV rays. Depending upon the species of the wood floor, these discolorations can be removed by having your wood floors refinished.This was exactly the case with our clients in Stevens Point. After we refinished the flooring, both the previous sanding imperfections and the discoloration were completely gone. The transformation of these floors turned out great. If you ever need your space transformed, contact us to schedule a consultation!

“Aaron did a beautiful job on our floors. After 15 years, they were in need of refinishing. Aaron restored the original beauty of the maple floors and suggested a water-based finish instead of the oil-based. No more gold floors!!! We also appreciate that there was virtually no dust to clean up. Great job Aaron. Thank you for making our floors beautiful again.”
