Sub floor preparation is the key first step for a successful hardwood floor installation. There were some raised seams that needed sanded down so we don't have peaks in the newly installed floors. We then used the buffer to clean up the dirt, paint spray and other junk from the floor. Then we se...

When we sand factory finished floors, we take extra steps to sand out the bevels. We do this to remove any dirt and contaminants (old "cleaners" and wax) that are trapped in the grooves. These can affect finish adhesion for all types of finish. And it just looks better--who wants to have black l...

Modern Hardwood floors did a Excellent job. After having my floors damaged from water by a well-known company and not standing behind their name, it was very stressful but Frank and his crew came in and was so professional, courteous and respectful they really made what was a bad situation more at ease for us. We are very pleased with the work. I would recommend Modern Hardwood Floors to anyone and everyone I know, they really are that good.

Modern Hardwood Floor Service (Frank) did the most incredible job refinishing my floors. Frank has a great eye for detail and even mixed two stain colors to get the color I wanted. Frank was professional, prompt, kept the space very clean, was mindful of noise, and respectful of our time. Prior to meeting with Frank, I asked two other places about refinishing my floors and they were not able to do it. I live in Old Town Alexandria in a 1000 sq ft 2-level condo with super shiny yellow/orange floating engineered hardwood floors (it looked like a basketball court). The space I wanted to refinish was only about 300-400 sq ft, but it required Frank to do it in two steps. I’m sure it wasn't easy, especially trying to work with the thin layer of hardwood on my engineered hardwood floors. Honestly, before Frank said he could do it, I wasn't even sure it could be done. But the finished product is simply amazing, it's a brown/grey stain color with a matte finish, I'm so in love with it! My pl...
