Oak Heart Flooring. When the little things matter.
Building rehab, 4th and Thompson, Phila., Pa.
Formerly a Lutheran church, but converted to warehouse use in probably the early 1900's as the neighborhood changed. The sanctuary was vertically divided with the addition of a mezzanine. Note the plaster medallion in the ceiling, restored by the developer. He was also insistant that these Longleaf Pine floors be restored.
These are all projects I have done.
Animals and Wood Floors
Pets can damage hardwood floors. (Not Lola, of course, pictured here) Their nails can scratch, and urine stains can be a disaster. We recommend keeping their nails trimmed, using a tough finish.
Installation of floors around steel door jamb
Floors get walked on, and dirt will collect. Caulking large gaps is not the same as carefully fitting wood to vertical obstructions. Additionally, insects will find the gaps to and use them as an entry point to the living space. There is no substitute for experience and craftmanship, to avoid these defects.
