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!
These are just a few examples of some amazing wood floor transformations in Neenah that we’ve done. If you have a floor that needs to be refinished in the Neenah area, please feel free to contact us. If you live outside of the Neenah area, check out the areas we also service. We would love to transform your space too!
We were recently called to take a look at a floor in Green Bay, WI. The homeowner had removed the old carpet from this bedroom and hall. He wanted the floors refinished and stained a medium color. The floors had been carpeted for years and were in desperate need of being refinished. The finish that was on the floor was orange and the wood wasn’t able to shine through and be the star of the room.
This customer wanted the maple flooring stained. Staining maple can be done with the right expertise. We’ve stained maple floors and they turn out very consistent in color. To help the customer choose colors, we do one of two things. We either use a sample board which has three color samples on it, or we do the samples on the floor like we did for this job. This gives the customer realistic color options from which to choose.
The color this client chose was Special Walnut. This color looks really sharp on maple flooring, giving it a warm, brownish tone. With the warm colors on the walls and the white trim, this floor really “pops,” making this bedroom and hall a very warm, inviting space.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss an upcoming wood floor project, feel free to contact us. We’d be more than happy to talk with you.

“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.”
– Lisa Paul, Oshkosh
“Aaron is an incredibly hard worker with incredible expertise on hardwood flooring. I had NO idea the amount of information out there on species of wood, finishes, etc. and Aaron was so helpful in explaining it all and making sure we got the floor we really had cooked up in our imagination. We could not be happier! The price was great, the service was fantastic and we got exactly what we wanted. I would recommend Aaron to anyone!”
