5 REASONS to team up with us...

Hi. Welcome to Dustless Hardwood Floors. We’re Brian and Donna. We’re guessing you have hardwood floors in your home that need some love. We understand that restoring hardwood flooring isn’t something you do very often. You probably have lots of questions...

“What’s involved?” “Is there a lot of dust?” “How bad is the smell?” “How do I ensure I will get a quality job?” “What is the best finish system?” “How much will it cost?” “How long does it take?” Yes, there’s a fair bit to learn. But we’re here to help you through this process. You’ll find answers to all these questions (and more) as you read through our website.

TO START WITH: Take a look at the 5 reasons below why we’re unique from the average New Jersey hardwood floor refinishing business...

REASON 1We’ll be here
with you for your entire project

As a small family run business, you’ll get our full care and attention during your hardwood floor restoration project. All your questions will be answered before we begin so there will be no last minute surprises. Dealing with one person throughout your project also means easy and efficient communication. No dealing separately with salespeople, managers and multiple staff. Brian will be there with you from the initial estimate to the final coat and clean-up. All our work is done by in-house, skilled staff supervised by Brian to ensure consistent, high-quality results.

REASON 2You get genuine hardwood floor specialists

You have a big choice of flooring businesses here in New Jersey. Some offer lots of different types of flooring choices. Carpet, vinyl, tile, laminate... and also hardwood flooring, but usually as a side line. We don’t. We only do hardwood. And we are 100% focused on hardwood floor restorations. We have been specializing in hardwood floor sanding and refinishing for a long time… over 20 years now. Hire us and you are hiring true hardwood floor experts.

REASON 3Yes, we really
are dustless.
For real!

We know that dust is one of the biggest issues in our line of work. The traditional way of sanding makes a HUGE mess. Dust literally everywhere! Nobody wants their house full of dust. We’re pretty sure you don’t either. We have invested in top-of-the-line dust containment equipment. It works amazingly well. Wait till you see it in action. You have a choice of two levels of dust containment when you work with us. You can read about your dustless options here.

REASON 4We are fully licensed and insured

Unlicensed and/or uninsured contractors is quite a big issue here in New Jersey. Because they cost more money to obtain, many businesses don’t bother. Do you really want to take a chance hiring a business that doesn’t have a New Jersey contractors license or insurance? What if something goes wrong? We have our full contractors license, liability insurance and workers compensation insurance. If ever something was to happen, you will be fully protected. You can read more about our coverage here.

REASON 5We don’t
operate out the back of a van

The biggest issue when hiring a home improvement business, (other than the quality of work) is making sure they will be around and easy to contact if something goes wrong. You don’t want to find out your floor has an issue down the road and not be able to contact the business owner. We’re here for the long-term. We’re not going anywhere. Our showroom is in Collingswood NJ. Appointments are available from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday. We are very established, easy to find and can’t hide even if we wanted to.

We would love to team up with you for your upcoming restoration. If you would like us to provide a free quote, head down to the Request an Estimate form.

Because there are a lot of businesses offering hardwood floor refinishing in New Jersey, we encourage you to educate yourself on what’s involved in a hardwood floor refinishing project. Take your time and choose one that you feel is competent and trustworthy. One that will treat you, your home and your floors with respect.

Look out for start-up businesses that want to practice on your valuable floors. Mistakes are costly to fix and will reduce the life of your floors. The sanding machines used are powerful and can do a lot of long-term damage in untrained hands, as you can see in the photo below...

Some things to be wary of...

It’s important to be aware of businesses that offer a super cheap service, then take shortcuts to make up the difference in price. For example, shortening the sanding process by skipping sanding grits, not finishing with planetary sanders, not providing dust containment etc. is common practice among budget hardwood floor restoration businesses.

Rushing through projects and not paying attention to details is another common thing we unfortunately see very often in this trade. You can end up with a huge mess on your hands that will cost you much more time and money to rectify. As you can imagine, this is a very labor intensive trade. It takes a lot of skill and years of training and practice to provide consistent, high-quality, beautiful looking hardwood floor restorations. There are a certain amount of man hours needed per project. You can’t skip steps and get the same results.

Imagine every time you look down at your floor you are reminded of and frustrated by poor quality workmanship. We don’t want that for you and we’re sure you don’t either.

Another common shortcut is using low-quality finish. Or… saying they will use a premium product, but instead they use cheap finish for the base coats and the premium finish is only applied as the top coat. The most common form of this here in New Jersey is through the use of lacquer sealers. (Read about lacquer sealer dangers here.) Cheap products like this will greatly reduce the durability of your floors. They will wear out way faster, resulting in having to go through this whole process all over again much sooner than was necessary.

Because of issues like these (unfortunately we see a lot of them), it’s important to take your time and choose a business that you feel is competent, skilled and trustworthy. One with a proven track record that will treat you, your home and your floors with respect.

Remember, your hardwood floor restoration will have a huge impact on the look and feel of your home. It’s a big project. Furniture needs to be packed up and moved. You’ll have limited access to your rooms. People will be in your home. It will be noisy and your home will smell. You don’t want to have to go through this all over again because of hiring the wrong business. We’ve had to come back and repair far too many floors for homeowners that have experienced low-quality work. We really don’t want that to happen to you. That means being out of your home for twice as long, paying twice the price and removing twice the amount of life from your floor. Not fun.

Please take some time to educate yourself on these issues. It doesn’t take long. It could potentially save you a lot of grief.

If you have any questions about what is involved, what finish systems are good, what to look out for or anything else, please feel free to ask. Whether you end up working with us or not, we are here to help. It's in our best interest to preserve the beautiful local hardwood floors we have here in New Jersey as much as we can.

Here are some of the most common questions we are asked to get you started.
