Brookens Wood Floors completely refinished our entire houseful of floors and we could not be happier. In the beginning we didn't even know if the floors could be saved. In the kitchen the floor did need to be pulled up and replaced with new oak because they were such a different (ugly) style. it now matches the rest of the floors which are original to the house. The stair treads were also completely refinished as well as three bedrooms upstairs.
When I first inquired about an estimate, the owner of the company promptly got back to me and set an appointment. I was given a written estimate that day which I felt was a very reasonable price for that much work. He is very knowledgeable about both new and old floors and we felt very comfortable in choosing him.
Once they started on the floors they showed up every weekday to work on them without fail. When everything was sanded they put a number of different stains on them for us to pick from.
Everyone on his crew are very professional. They always made sure we knew what the schedule was for the day and when we could walk on the different areas of the house.
They took our very, very old oak floors and restored them to looking so much nicer than I could have imagined. We will definitely be using them in the future, they do gorgeous work.
Dawson just installed hardwood in our kitchen to match dining area- he did a fabulous job & what a nice young man!
Ralph & his team are a great pleasure to work with!
I have hired these guys for years! I would ONLY recommend them. You get what you pay for, and never disappointed! Thanks Ralph, Eric and Crew
Ralph and company delivered far beyond my expectations. Ed, Tim and Eric installed and finished my new hickory floor and stair treads. I had one high end contractor tell me that I couldn't install solid hardwood floors, floating engineered flooring was my only option. Wrong. This wood is gorgeous and the amount of effort that went into the install and finishing was insane. If you want exceptional work at a fair price there is no other choice.
Brookens did a replacement of a metal return heat register in the middle of a floor in the Williamsville United Methodist Church. I wish could post a photo. Very good work...
I work with Ralph & crew @ Brookens on many jobs for "Real laid & finish in place" wood floors & could not recommend them enough.
I know that we are the most experienced, best trained, most conscientious wood flooring professionals in central Illinois, producing the highest quality wood floors.
