"I hired Barry to re-stain over a previous stain color I didn't like from a previous job, to install a custom wood accent wall & install shelves in closets. Barry came right away when I was ready to have him take a look at the project in order to give me a estimate, which was wonderful. He was also very responsive to texts, even while he was away. He came the days she said he would come to work on the project. Not many contractors are responsive to calls/texts or even come the days the say they would. He did a wonderful job on the wooden accent wall, i know it was a challenging project, and I am a picky client, but he took the time out to listen to what I wanted to create. He did a good job on staining the floors as well. There were a few spots on the floor missing the gloss finish, but Barry didn't give any push back and didn't hesitate to come back to correct the job. The only thing I would like to point out is that I found his price to be quite expensive for the type of project. His work is good and he listens to your feedback and what you want done, but his price is expensive. I didn't question it with him or ask for a lower price, as I had a bad experience from previous contractor who left my job undone, and I was desperate to just have it completed and done and over with, so I paid the price. But did find it to be a bit high. Otherwise, his work is good, takes feedback from you, and cleans up when he is done. "

"I would give Champion and Danny six stars if I could. We have a 1934 Tudor house with original wood (oak) windows and doors. The old single pane windows were drafty and hard to open, and the exterior storm windows (from the 1950s) were ugly and ineffective. The wood window frames and doors were beat up and the shellac finish had bubbled and cracked. I go into more detail about the window replacement shopping process below because it took us a long time to figure out the right way to do it. Danny knew exactly how to do this job! The window installation was fairly simple but the refinishing of the window frames and doors was really handcrafted, so the entire job took six weeks from the construction start date (and perhaps another eight weeks from time we agreed on the scope until the installation began). Danny and every member of his team had exceptional customer service. They arrived on time, and called to let us know they were five minutes away. Every person associated with the job put in a full day's work with exceptional focus on the job at hand. There were frequent check-ins to make sure we were on board with decisions about say leaving hardware on the doors or variations in stain color. They left the house spotless every day and were considerate of noise, cats, home office work, everything. The work is stunning and reflects craftsmanship and attention to detail that went far beyond our standards. The windows Danny recommended (Trimline), while not a name brand, are fantastic and much better quality in our view than the Andersen product sold by Home Depot. The price was fair and worth every pretty penny. Danny threw in a major gift "a custom rebuild of an attic window frame and door" that we would have happily paid for. More research showed that Trimline was a smallish factory outside of Pennsylvania, and the Brooklyn Heights historic district approved them. We compared a sample to the Andersen window at Home Depot and there was no comparison. Trimline was sturdier, easier to operate, aesthetically cleaner lines and indeed all that has proved to be the case now that they are installed. The warranties seemed to be identical to Andersen. Danny was extra careful in the measurements and ordering”texting me frequently to make sure he had the correct finish and style on the hardware, for example. Danny said the windows (we have 24 of them) would take a week to install and he could do it if the weather was above 40 degrees I think. So we installed in the middle of January (!); we went on a trip, and they were in place when we returned. Danny and the installer both made sure we checked every window and understood how to open them for cleaning. Very easy. The staining of the wood interior window panels and the sanding and staining of the window frames and doors (22 doors) was labor intensive to say the least. Danny's subcontractor John created a test window so we could review the color of the stain and the satin poly coat. "

Ideas & Inspiration from Bronx Flooring & Carpet Contractors


Bronx Wood Floor Refinishing

The northernmost of the five boroughs of New York City, the Bronx is well known for its iconic zoo, top-tier university, and famous ballpark. In the 21st century, the Bronx is undergoing a revival all its own. Because it is priced far more reasonably than its southerly neighbors, Manhattan and Brooklyn, young people, artists, and retirees are flocking to the Bronx as a more affordable yet accessible alternative that is within a reasonable distance from Manhattan.

Like most of New York, the historic homes and new builds of the Bronx include large, commanding multi-unit condos and apartments, alongside modest townhouses, multi-family rental units, and even a few impressive free-standing mansions. Standing out in the competitive NYC market, however, means always putting your home's best foot forward, which includes paying attention to details such as refinishing wood floors.

Local Cost for Wood Floor Refinishing

With historic buildings located from one end of the borough to the other, refinishing the wood floors in a Bronx home is rather commonplace. However, because it is part of the greater NYC-metro area and most contractors travel for work, average prices include what people pay in all five boroughs. To that effect, the average wood floor refinishing job in the Bronx costs $1,511 with most reporting costs between $967 and $2,060. This is on par with the national average of $1,552 for a 300-square-foot room.

Licensing and Qualifications Needed

The City of New York requires all contractors to obtain a license. Especially when working inside historic buildings, it is also often necessary for contractors to obtain a permit for any restoration or remodeling work completed. These contractors must also purchase general liability insurance policies worth a minimum of $2,000,000.

Homeowners can check the status of any contractor's license in New York City at the city's website, located here

Other Projects to Consider 

Sometimes refinishing wood floors is not enough, and sometimes it is too much. Other times, something in the middle will do. It’s important to consider other options for refreshing and revitalizing wood floors, especially in historical homes, if you want the best end results.

Discuss with your contractor whether wood floor repair is needed in spots where there is a lot of wear or rot. Alternately, if the condition of the floor is adequate, a simple resealing might be all that you need. Finally, in severe cases, especially in renovations and in homes damaged by water or fire, it may be necessary to replace the wood floors completely.

Prominent Neighborhoods in the Bronx

At only 42 square miles, the Bronx is the second-smallest of the New York boroughs with just over 1.4 million residents. Most locations within the Bronx boast easy access to Manhattan thanks to several major highways including the Bronx River Parkway, Cross Bronx Expressway (I-95), and the Major Deegan (I-87) as well as mass transit options including more than 70 subway stations served by six separate lines and two commuter rails (the Harlem and Hudson lines).

Neighborhoods in the Bronx date back generations, with many enclaves and buildings as old as the city itself. However, the hands of time, urban renewal projects, and rising and falling crime rates throughout the years have changed the face of several of these neighborhoods several times over. As Bronx real estate begins to pick up, a few key players in the market stand out from the rest:

Riverdale

Riverdale is a unique area within the five boroughs because it offers large, spacious single-family homes around 3,000 square feet in the $2-$4 million range. This upper middle class area is decidedly suburban and includes a variety of early 20th-century mansions alongside 1950s and 1960s brick-style low-rise buildings converted to co-ops.

Mott Haven

Because of its South Bronx location and easy commute, Mott Haven is a really popular area for young people looking to cash in on the revitalization of the borough. With many investors looking to reshape the area, Mott Haven is primarily rentals, so homes move fast and include units in 25-story modern tower apartment buildings, single-family waterfront homes, and converted lofts.

Highbridge

Highbridge is located just south of Yankee Stadium on the banks of the Harlem River in the central-western part of the borough. It offers some unique architecture including Art Deco apartment buildings and Victorian mansions, as well as affordable living in 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom co-ops with median prices in the $80,000-$300,000 range.

Fordham

Aside from the university of the same name, the Fordham, located at the west end of the Bronx, offers other well-known landmarks such as the Bronx Zoo and the New York Botanical Garden. With a large student population and a variety of old New York cultural enclaves such as the Bronx Little Italy, homes in this area are primarily multi-family units, condos, co-ops, and townhomes.
