Hardwood Floor Project in Braintree

This was a very special hardwood floor sanding project for us. Our client was a huge wood enthusiast and this was his dream home he was building in Braintree MA. We came in and basically were given free reign to do anything we liked with his hardwood floor… within budget of course.

He wanted a fully custom, tricked out hardwood floor that would be completely original and unique. Not often, as a flooring contractor, do you get a hardwood flooring installation and sanding project to work on like this so we were all very excited. Our creative juices flowing, we spent hours and hours designing the custom wood floors and borders with multiple types of wood. In the end, we used 5 different species of wood in 3 different milling types, with 4 different install designs... a one of a kind custom hardwood floor.

You can see the results below…

Braintree MA Hardwood Floor Refinishing Project

The house was 3 stories with the dining, living and family rooms, along with the kitchen and entrance on the main level. The other 2 levels had 5 bedrooms and the top level had a large rumpus room. All up there was just over 5,000 square feet of hardwood flooring to install, sand, stain and finish.

Above you can see the finished entrance after wood floor installation, sanding and refinishing. It’s a basket-weave design made from Hickory and Brazilian Cherry. It’s not a common design and took a lot of effort to get it perfect.

You can see the main section installed below as we were getting ready to do the White Oak and Walnut border…

This is one of the pieces equipment we use for a perfect hardwood floor install. The Festool saw runs in the grooves of the saw track and ensures the joints are perfect. This same piece of equipment is used for all the borders you see here too.
