As a Realtor, I am very selective when it comes to making improvements to my home as I want to make sure that I am making a good investment and will end up with a quality result that will enhance the value of my home. That being said I was extremely satisfied with Renaissance Floor & Carpet, their knowledgeability about their products and quality craftsmanship gave me a result that significantly exceeded my expectations.
I used Renaissance Floor & Carpet to replace the existing carpet and tile with wood in the living room and kitchen of my condo. I shopped around extensively and immediately felt a sense of relief after meeting with Amir at his showroom in Rockville because I had finally found a provider who would be able to meet my expectations and help me accomplish my year long goal of getting my new wood floors. He had at least a dozen different brands of engineered hardwood flooring (while other places had just a few) including some of the most popular brands that I had seen recommended online. We discussed the pros and cons of each and Amir understood how important it was to me to get a quality product as with engineered hardwood flooring refinishing is nearly impossible.I knew that I wanted a hand scraped wide plank product in a color that was dark but would match my medium toned cabinets (a color I dislike but not worth changing as they are only a few years old). When I saw the Armstrong Old World Acacia sample I knew that it was the one! I had been very close to going with a different provider who was going to charge me more for a lower quality product, Amir was able to beat that price by $500 and give me the exact floors I had been looking for. The quote was straightforward and inclusive of everything needed to do the job and there were no extra fees, I paid 1/3 as a deposit to order the materials and the rest after the job was complete.
The preparation (carpet and tile removal) and installation took 2 days. The workers were prompt and very professional, I had no problem leaving them working in my home for the day while I went to work – typically this is something that I find very stressful. Their work was flawless, no gaps or uneven cuts, even in the kitchen where they had to remove the lower part of the cabinets to make sure the wood extended under.
Overall the result and experience was better than I imagined it could be. I absolutely LOVE my new floors and I love how they enhance the overall appearance of my home.
