Project #5:

Malibou Lake White Oak + Rubio Monocoat

Located in Malibou Lake, within the Santa Monica Mountains, the client’s vision behind this project was to have rustic looking hardwood floors, so we knew hand distressing the floors would achieve the look they wanted.

This type of work is extremely physical and time consuming, however the end result is 100% worth the effort. The wood floor area was about 950 sq/ft, with the addition of a staircase. The clients were thrilled with the unique results. A truly one of a kind floor.

Marcos at CMC Hardwood Floors was incredibly easy to work with and did a wonderful job on the floors at my office building. He explained all flooring options and was very accommodating. Even with our busy schedule and constantly changing requirements, he was able to work with us with a great attitude. He even offered to create and show us samples to provide peace of mind, which was over and beyond and actually cemented the deal for us. We had initially chose to do business with him over other companies because he seemed to have a great work ethic, was a people person, and was just so easy-going an accommodating. Thank goodness we chose him because he did a wonderful job! He's really great about communicating and returning calls. He always has a vast knowledge of his profession and the results of our floors prove he's a pro. Thanks Marcos & co at CMC Hardwood Floors! Susan M. - Los Angeles, CA | 5 Star Review on Yelp

Marcos and his guys are great. My only complaint is that they're always booked! I have done 4 jobs with this company and they were great every time, eliciting not even a grumble from me on any of the jobs. Great work, nice people, trustworthy, fair, and reliable.
