Refinishing wood floors

Fabulous company. Personalized and very personable service - a truly nice crew. Quick, extremely efficient yet paid attention to every detail. All questions were promptly answered. Super reliable. What more could we have asked for? Thank you Ky, Rachel and Brennan for a great job done! We love our new floors on the two levels and the steps (a big job)!!! Very happy to recommend your company to others.

Thanks Gerald .... what a great project this was for us to work on. Walnut is a beautiful wood and always turns out amazing. Refinishing the stairs was a challenge in the heat we had to deal with ... it must have got up to 40 degrees. Just remember to following the maintenance instructions and it'll be a long time before you have to call us back for a maintenance coat. Enjoy. Ky

Refinishing of hardwood floors

We just purchased a house with hardwood floors. They were yellowed and needed finishing. Bull Tough Flooring Ltd was recommended to us. We were impressed that we did not have to pay anything in advance and payment would not be required until we were happy with the job. The quality of the work was very impressive and we were 100% satisfied with the work.
The work was completed exactly when promised and the cost was exactly what was quoted

Thanks Paul ... it was pleasure. It took a bit of extra sanding to get your floor totally flat but it was worth the effort. The large open window you have facing west let's in lots of light ... and with the satin finish we used for the final coat... I'm really happy with the way it turned out ... it looks awesome.

Floor refinishing, oak hardwood

Ky was very professional throughout the entire process - when asked originally he gave me a ballpark estimate based on the size of my home to allow me to determine my budget. When he arrived at my home, he measured and gave me a full estimate (less than his ballpark). He arrived promptly, was honest, straightforward and thorough, answering all my questions and concerns before scheduling the work.
The floors look fantastic, the house was left clean and tidy, and he left me with a comprehensive guide to maintaining the beautiful condition of my floors. Would definitely work with this company again!

Thanks Jessica ... I absolutely love this type of sand job. The challenge of bringing these old floors back to life is what keeps me going strong. I'm so glad you're happy with the final product and service ... it's always our goal to deliver the best experience to our customers. Your floor is now good to go for a very long time now if you keep up with the maintemance. Any questions... you always know you can call me. Thanks Ky

Main Floor Hardwood Refinish and Install

We moved into our first home in the spring of 2017 with the idea that there was 1960's original hardwood floor under carpeting. The plan was to refinish the original hardwood after removing the carpet, but we found out a day into the project that there wasn't hardwood installed in any of the bedrooms. Ky and his team had been doing fantastic work refinishing the existing floor, and they really shone once we knew additional hardwood needed to be installed. The advice and extra help offered were exactly what we needed to get our house in shape, I'm sure we couldn't have done it without Ky and his excellent team.

I'm glad we were able to help you out with this especially since it's your first home and you were unfamiliar with general renovations. The new floor you've had installed will literally last you a life time .... I hope you can enjoy it for many years to come. Thanks

Hardwood Floor Refinishing

Ky and his team did a great job refinishing our hardwood floors! The whole experience was pleasant, Ky was able to show finish samples so we would have an idea of what the floor would look like when they were done and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out. The price quoted was the price we paid, no mess, no fuss, no drama, just a job well done and we are very happy. I would not hesitate to use Bull Tough again in the future.

Thanks Tim. It makes it much easier for us to perform at our best when customers like you help with excellent floor preparation. We wasted no time on this job, we were able to unload our tools and get straight to work. The result is a floor that has been sanded with our full attention. We're always happy when we get feedback like this. All the best.

Engineered haardwood resurfacing

We currently have engineered hardwood floors in our house that has seen heavy use and has been home to two 60lb dogs for the last 3 years. We were preparing the property to be listed but needed to have the floors refinished. Bull tough flooring ltd. Gave us a couple options that could be done with the engineered hardwood, we opted to have the floors buffed and resurfaced. Because we were on a tight schedule bull tough flooring was able to make us an appointment within two weeks and had the job done within the day, the end product was fantastic and brought new life into some very scratched and damaged floors. I would recommend them to anyone that needs to have floors done!

Thanks Sheldon. Yes ... the "screen & process" was the best option for you. Refinishing that floor wasn't even an option so I'm glad we were able to help with just the recoat or it would have been a much bigger investment to replace the floor. All the best with the sale of your house.

Floor Sanding and Stain

Bull Tough Flooring was recommended to us and we are so glad we called them. Ky was fantastic to work with. He was flexible in working around our basement renovation but was clear in what he needed to make sure our floors weren't damaged in the process. Ky and his team were very professional and clearly highly skilled. We had a hardwood floor that was difficult to work with and a few water damaged areas but now the floor looks brand new! We love the finished product and would definitely recommend Bull Tough Flooring.

Shelyn, it was a pleasure. There is nothing more satisfying than getting a review like this. Having your maple floor stained a pencil grey totally changes the look and brings it up to date. The old yellow pre-finished floors are difficult to sand but really turn out well. Thanks.

Flooring Installation, Refinishing and Custom Stain

Ky was fantastic to work with from the very beginning. He responded to my homestars inquiry right away, provided a competitive quote and even paid us a site visit to make sure he fully understood the scope (we installed raw maple in previously carpeted areas, refinished existing maple, and then custom stained everything to match). He made sure we were comfortable with the process, timeline and budget throughout the entire project which helped us 'newbie' homeowners out a lot - receiving progress update pictures via text was the highlight of each day! Ky respected our home, completed the project on time and on budget, left the place clean and did a PHENOMENAL job with our floors. His excitement and passion for custom stains was so contagious! We have the most beautiful floors I've ever seen. Thanks Ky for everything! We love our new floors :). I highly recommend Ky for anyone's future project!

Thanks Kayla, it was a pleasure. Yes, I love mixing up custom stains ! It's always worth the effort when I get reviews like this. I'm glad we were able fix up the scratches that were accidentally caused immediately after we finished the floor. All the best with your new home :)

Refinish main floor hardwood

We hired Ky based on his personality, honesty, and homestar reviews. His quote was comparable to others, but we liked that he quotes and does the work as well. I'm fairly handy, so I offered to remove the baseboards for Ky to help speed up the job. What started out to be a quick 5 day refinish job, turned into a 2 week hardwood repair. It turns out that the builder nailed the bathroom trim through the water line, so when I removed the trim, it developed a leak behind the drywall and warped all the wood in the bathroom and front entrance. Ky found the issue right away, turned off the water and let us know. He gave a few options to fix, and in the end we had him tear out the damaged boards and replace with new maple. Ky helped us pick a great looking stain that brings out multiple colors in our hardwood and his satin finish looks clean all the time. He works late hours to get the job done to balance his family life with his new baby. He shows up on time, cleans up, and does great work. We love our new floor and wouldn't hesitate to use Bull Tough for repairs or complete jobs.

More about Bull Tough Flooring Ltd

Hi, my name is Ky and here is a quick bio of Bull Tough Flooring Ltd.

I started this company by sanding floors at the weekend and evenings. When the time was right I decided to go solo and start my own company. I started at the bottom with no experience apart from what I'd learned on myself on jobsites. That was the beginning and after years of training here we are ... a small company of 3 people totally dedicated to being the best small company in our field.

Our field specifically being ... the installation and finishing of site-finished floors, also known as "real" or "solid" hardwood. This includes stairs and the refinishing of any type of hardwood floor.

We've always kept things simple. Customers choose us because we're so easy to work with. The first phone call is all you need to make.

Feel free to contact us with your questions.
