It has been three weeks since Sequoia installed our new floors and we are still in awe. Josef and his crew brought experience and intelligence to a process we had previously been very frustrated with. The living room and dining room of our house has had hardwood floors and for a long time we wanted to carry the look into the rest of the house. (Three bedrooms and a long hallway.) This presented the problem of how to color match the tone of the existing maple or install a ?complimentary? wood in the rest of the house. For more than a year we went to various hardwood suppliers were told to ?pick a sample, take it home, and let us know whether this works for you.? Some of samples looked OK, but the thickness wouldn?t work. Some of the vendors gave us information that conflicted with what we knew was true. None of the suppliers actually did their own installation and they expected us to find an independent contractor to lay the floor. All and all, a less than rewarding experience. We were about to give up and just put down carpet when we were tipped to Sequoia by another tradesman. After we visited their Van Nuys store and, once again, picked up some samples - Josef came out to the house listened to our desires and assessed the situation. After looking at the existing flooring he told us he thought he had a better idea than the samples we had chosen. Three days later he delivered samples from two floor providers that were not in stock, but he thought would be better matches. Wow, does he have a great eye - they were almost exact color copies. (The reason they weren?t exact matches is due to the 25 years of polish build up on the existing floors.) A week later, the material was delivered to the house. Installation was a breeze (for us) and the quality was extremely professional. All of the crew works for Sequoia and so it had the additional advantage of being ?one stop shopping?. Attention to detail is always appreciated and the crew paid particular attention to the doorways. Not only did they center the slats under the door but they transitioned the height between the new hardwood and the tile in the bathrooms so that a casual observer couldn?t tell there was a difference. Nice. Obviously we are pleased with the work and appreciate Josef?s eye and listening skills. We would recommend Sequoia to anyone.
