Venice Beach Edge Grain Oak Install, Sand and Finish with Rubio Monocoat
This was a really fun hardwood floor installation and refinishing project in Venice Beach, Los Angeles. The owner is an architect so of course it was going to be a unique floor. In the end, an end grain white oak wood floor was sourced from European company Kaswell Flooring. Below you can see how it turned out...
The whole house, about 1,800sqft, had the custom parquet flooring installed, including the 49 steps and 54 risers. That's a LOT of stairs. It took our crew 2 weeks to prepare the sub-floors and staircases, install the wood flooring and then sand and refinish it. Our favorite hardwax oil, Rubio Monocoat Oil Plus 2C, was used for the finish system. The color Pure was chosen. To make sure the thousands of joints in the end grain flooring looked good, we used a special filler (Loba EasyFillPro) that would accept the color so it looked the same as the flooring. We're very happy with how this custom hardwood floor in Venice Beach turned out. Happily, so are the owners.

My experience with CMC Hardwood Floors has been more than pleasant from the beginning to the end. I was looking to re-sand our hardwood floors, and after talking with many contractors, Marcos was the most professional and honest from the beginning who gave me the approximate quote right at front and knew exactly what had to be done when I showed him a few pictures of floors that I liked. I am more than happy that I asked Marcos to do our project! The end product was perfect and honestly the floors are my favorite part of the house. Marcos is very professional and was such a pleasant person to interact with throughout the project. Although his price is not the cheapest, it is very reasonable (which I can confirm after asking many other contractors), and most of all, he delivers the end product that I am just very happy with. If you are looking for a reliable and knowledgeable contractor for your flooring project, you will not regret choosing CMC Hardwood Floors.Chelsea Yo - Venice Beach, Los Angeles, CA | 5 Star Review on Google
Venice Beach White Oak Installation and Refinishing with Loba Invisible
The owners of this home in Venice Beach, Los Angeles were not happy with the Brazillian Cherry hardwood floors the house came with. Instead of the dark, reddish brown shades, they wanted a light colored hardwood floor. So they decided to install a brand new engineered wide plank White Oak floor on top. Below are the progress photos from this wood floor installation project...
This project was done in two stages. The reason was because of the custom reglet trim the owners wanted. This trim is a reveal in the drywall that replaces the need for baseboards. It's a beautiful, clean modern look. So we first sanded the original Brazillian Cherry floors down flat, to be used as the sub-floor. Then we glued the 8" engineered White Oak flooring we supplied and delivered. It couldn't be nailed because of the dense, hard sub-floor. We also installed new custom treads and risers on the staircase. Once the hardwood floor and stair installation was completed, we left so the drywallers could do thier thing. When they finished up, we came back and sanded and refinished the flooring and staircase. We also installed brand new matching oak handrails and new metal spindles on the staircase, replacing the original dated stainless steel handrail. The owners wanted a natural looking very matte look. So we went with a professional grade water-based finish system called Loba Invisible. All up this wood floor project took 10 days and covered about 1,500sqft.

This is a long overdue review for our flooring project back in December 2019... My experience with CMC Hardwood Floors has been more than pleasant from the beginning to the end. I was looking to re-sand our hardwood floors, and after talking with many contractors, Marcos was the most professional and honest from the beginning who gave me the approximate quote right at front. He knew exactly what had to be done to our floors when I showed him a few pictures of floors that I liked. I am more than happy that I asked Marcos to do our project! The end product was great and the flooring is my favorite part of the house now. Marcos is very professional and was such a pleasant person to interact with throughout the project. I had to communicate with him remotely due to traveling to get some documents for HOA approval, etc., but everything went on smoothly thanks to his professionalism. Project was finished exactly by the time he promised. If you are looking for a reliable and knowledgeable contractor for your flooring project, you really should give them a call.Chelsea Y - Los Angeles, CA | 5 Star Review on Yelp

CMC Hardwood Floors, headed by Marcos Proti, is an artistic, ethical company that does excellent work. We had had a terrible experience with another company in 2008, when the floors were installed and we wanted to avoid that kind of catastrophe, again. So, in 2014, after a failed refrigerator ruined our kitchen floor, making it necessary to repair the damage and refinish the floors throughout the house, we contacted CMC Hardwood floors for a consultation and an estimate. CMC’s price was fair, their service was superior and Marcos Proti is not only a craftsman but an artist, who really knows how to bring out the beauty in the wood. He patiently worked with us to get the color and tone of the stain just right. CMC was efficient, fast and clean — and the work was beautiful. In April of this year (2020) our floors were damaged by rainwater, flooding into the house. We contacted Marcos. We had a tight deadline to complete the work. He jumped right in on the project, working with us to choose the stain and the finish. Once again, CMC Hardwood Floors did an amazing job. They completed the project in record time and the floors are even more beautiful than they were when they were new. We highly recommend this company.Sandra Murray - Los Angeles, CA | 5 Star Review on Google
