Description Of Work: 
Refinished hardwood floor in front living room.
Member Comments: 
Much to our surprise, we found a beautiful hardwood floor beneath some hideous carpet in the front room of our 63 year old home.  We considered several options that included new carpet, laminate and floor refinishing.  We were concerned about several large dark stains that looked like they might be the result of pet accidents.  We called Sunshine Hardwood Floors to assess our situation, and we are so glad we did!  From start to finish, I could not complain about a single thing in my dealings with them.  We were able to schedule work right away. And over the phone,  they quoted a reasonable price sight unseen based on square footage and a general description.  They showed up on time and helped us move some large pieces of furniture out of the way.  Before they began work, they test sanded several of the dark pet stains, and we were delighted to discover that sanding was able to remove nearly all evidence of them.  They then proceeded to test several shades of floor stain so that we could choose what we liked.  We had to go a small amount darker than the original to cover all the pet errors, but now that the floor is finished, you cannot see any evidence of them at all!  It took the husband/wife team only two days to complete the work on my approximately 300 square foot room.  And on the third day, they came back with their two sons and moved all our furniture for us. It cost us only an extra $50 over the original quote to remove, re-stain, and replace the quarter round base board, which I did not find unreasonable at all.  Clean up was excellent.  I am so pleased with my new floor, I already know I will have Sunshine Hardwood Floors return later this year to refinish floors in my hallway and master bedroom.  Great work at a great price.  Carpeting would have cost me a lot more.  And my gorgeous floor has now added significant value to my property. These are really nice people to to business with.  Very highly recommended!

They sampled multiple stains for us, filled gaps in the floorboards, and fixed the steps between the tile and hardwood. I would definitely recommend sunshine flooring to anyone looking.

Description Of Work:
Completely refinished approximately 1100 sq ft of hardwood flooring, replaced all quarter-round shoe molding and transitions, and put two coats of high traffic polyurethane.

Member Comments: 
Dan was very courteous and professional. He came out to my house to give me a free estimate within a couple of days of contacting him, and worked around my busy schedule to do so. He brought stain color samples, measured my floors, and even recommended a high traffic polyurethane coating for my floors when I mentioned my concerns about the floor and my 120 lbs dog.
Dan and his crew completely (from sanding them clean to two coats of poly) refinished my 60 year old hardwood floors which extend throughout much of the house including the closets.  The work was done over the Thanksgiving week. Again, his crew were great with working with my schedule. I had the floors stained a darker shade, he put down a few different stains on the wood to let me get an idea of which shade I preferred in a larger dose. Which was nice since, like paint, its hard to get an idea of what it will look like from a 2 inch swatch. My new floors are beautiful, they look great (I went with a satin finish), and have even received complements on them. There were no hidden costs and I would definitely use Dan's company again.

A new wood floor was put into a room. The old carpet needed to be removed.
Member Comments: 
We had a wonderful experience with Sunshine hardwood floors. Dan Nguyen was very professional yet very friendly and flexible. He took very precise measurements and advised  us how much and what kind of wood to order. On the day the floor was going to be put in the whole family came to help. We found out that the concrete needed to be sealed first ,so the floor was not put in  until two days later. Dan's advice seemed very wise and we are glad we heeded it so we don't have to worry about moisture damaging our floors later. The room was finished the same day and just looks beautiful. Dam and his family will come back in a few months to refinish our older  wood floors and we are looking forward to it!

Member Comments: 
Dan came out for an initial estimate and looked at the floors.  Once we decided to move forward, they did have a pretty full schedule, so we booked about 3 weeks out.  Dan was able to get me in about a week earlier when he had an opening.  His crew arrived about 10-20 minutes early and they were able to finish the room in one day.
The floors look great and I can't wait to finish the other rooms and have more floors refinished!

Description Of Work: 
About 700 sq ft of hardwood floors were refinished and one patch of damaged hardwood was replaced.
Member Comments: 
We chose Sunshine based on the reviews on Angie's List and their availability to start the refinishing project as soon as we closed on our house. Dan came out the day before the work was to begin to survey the floors, give us a more accurate bid, and show us a few color options. He was helpful in giving us accurate pricing and giving advice on what repairs were worth doing and which weren't. One concern was an large area of wood in the dining room with water damage that made the wood much darker than the rest of the floors.

Dan and his family started the work on a Monday and were finished by Wednesday evening. Since we were undecided on which stain to use, he stained a few sections of the floor with different colors so that we could get a better idea of what they would look like (which helped a lot in our decision). He and his family were very nice and VERY good at what they do. The floors were finished ahead of schedule and we couldn't be happier with the end result. The floors look brand new and the water damaged section isn't noticeable unless you're really looking for it.

In addition to the great work, Sunshine was honest and straightforward. Dan let me know that there were a few spots where they had nicked the shoe molding and scraped off some paint (really minor, but I appreciated that he let me know). They also adhered to the bid after having to use more 3x the stain than they originally anticipated.

Overall, I can't recommend Sunshine highly enough. They were easy to deal with, honest, had great prices, and most of all, did amazing work.

Sunshine was the low bidder on a request for quote. They showed up on schedule and finished on schedule, did a great job and cleaned up the dust, including masking off appliances. A realtor we had looking at the house and seeing the truck outside also noted what an excellent job they had done in the past.

Refinish 710 sqft of Pinewood Flooring and 14 Stair Treads
Member Comments: 
Everything from start to finish went extremely well.  Dan and his crew showed up on time everyday.  Worked for about 8 hours everyday and finished the job on time as promised.  We had pinewood flooring throughout our home which is a very soft wood. Our floors were badly damaged with deep scratches, along with bite marks on the stair treads from our dogs.  We honestly did not think that the floors could be refinished since they were damaged so much and boy were we wrong.  Dan and his crew did an amazing job refinishing and made the floors look like new again.  We had a three story townhouse and when they were finished sanding they took their time making every nook and cranny was clean and free of wood dust.  All three stories were dusted down and vacuumed well.  Our house looked immaculate when it was finished and it sold within 9 days of listing it.  Refinishing the floors made a huge difference and Dan's company was one of the less expensive contractors that came out to give us a bid.  Dan even advised us on not replacing the damaged stairs but just refinishing them to save money.  Another contractor told us that they had to be replaced.  Luckily we followed Dan's advice which saved us a lot of money!!  Dan's crew, which is his family (mom, dad, brother and girlfriend) are all very nice, honest, hardworking people.  We would definitely recommend them to family and friends!  We would also definitely use them again in the future!!

Refinish, sand and coated all my bedroom floors
Member Comments:
Last year my living room floor were a disaster, so I searched for a flooring contractor and founded Sunshine Hardwood Floors. That was when I met Dan. He knew a lot about hardwood and explained my options. I decided to go with him because the price fit my budget and I love to help family owned business. So I hired him and his family and may I say they were all very hard working and delightful at my home. They finished my floors on schedule and it now looks so beautiful. My floors look brand new again and I love it! Then a few months after I did my living room floors, I wanted to do my four bedrooms, so I called up Dan and his family again. They now recently refinished my four bedrooms and matched the color of those rooms to my living room and ounce again made it look amazing! I recommend them to anyone who wants to get their floors done because I will sure use them again in the future.

Member Comments:
My hardwood floors had not been touched since 1961. They looked so bad that I was considering covering them up with engineered wood, though I really didn't want to mess with the integrity of the house. Dan came out and gave me an estimate and said "we love to sand"!!! Dan and his family (yes this truly a family business) and worked and worked until the floors EXCEEDED my expectations. I thought I was just getting hardwood floors refinished. Meeting Dan and his family was truly a joyful, spiritual, life-changing event. They were so kind and respectful of me, my home, and even my pet! I would not hesitate to hire this team over and over.

Member Comments:
Workmanship and results were excellent. Despite the extensive work done, Sunshine scheduled their work for minimum disruption so that we could stay in the house during most of the work. They worked Saturdays and Sundays to complete the job in the least amount of time. This is a family business and 4-5 family members were on the job every day. They were punctual, arriving when they said they would and worked with minimal breaks to finish the phase they were working on that day. It's inherently a messy project but they cleaned up as best as could be expected. They communicated their work plans very well so we always knew what they'd be working on the next day/week. I would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending them.

Member Comments:
I  contacted Dan Nguyen by phone. He was very cordial and helpful and scheduled a visit to take a look at the job I needed done the same day. He was very punctual and helpful with considering various options that I could take. He reviewed the job that we determined was the best approach and provided a competitive $ value for the job at the end of our meeting. I reviewed the quotation and determined that it was competitive. The next day , Dan scheduled for work to begin. Dan and his work crew worked diligently from that point on including Saturday to complete the job on time. Throughout the job Dan and his work crew kept me informed of the progress of the job and did an outstanding job completing the new installation and refinishing of my older hardwood floors on schedule and on budget. I can highly recommend Sunshine Hardwood flooring without any reservation.

Impossible to tell where the flooring was replaced. seamless transition between existing and new flooring.

Dan and his family repaired multiple areas of damaged wood in the flooring of my 1920 Craftsman-style bungalow, found the perfect wood match, filled in gaps, sanded the floors, stained them, applied two coats of satin finish, and installed quarter-rounds throughout the house.
Member Comments:
From the moment I spoke with Dan on the phone, I knew that he was professional, trustworthy, level-headed, detail-oriented and focused on customer service. He and his father, together with his mother and his cousin worked painstakingly on the floors for days in advance of the sanding to repair sections that were severely damaged. Dan called multiple lumber suppliers to match the exact wood, and had the lumber company cut the boards to the exact measurements of the existing wood. He was respectful of the other contractors who were working on the house, and they completed the work in a timely and efficient manner. He and his family made the floors simply perfect, in both color and quality. They are true craftsmen, and I would recommend them to anyone interested in having their wood floors restored and enhanced. I could not be happier with my spectacular hardwood floors!

Great Work!
By Bwrecka 
This family owned business does great work and is highly recomened by myself. I had them do my entire first floor and I have recived nothing but positive comments from all of my friends and family since the work has been completed. While the speed of thier work may be the only drawback, the end result is WELL WORTH IT. Call them today for great work and an affordable price.


YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
 By Sharon 
After giving a reasonable estimate for replacement or refinishing of engineered oak floors, this team carefully sanded them to remove some weird coating the previous owner of the house had applied. The oak floors were beautiful so Dan and his family refinished them with a dark chocalate stain and 3 coats of poly. He also removed carpet from the stairs and installed oak wooden stair treads stained to match the floors. They worked long hours and the work was meticulous. This is a family business and they are very nice people who are very proud of their work - as they should be. I referred a co-worker to them and he was also very pleased with the outcome of his refinishing job. These guys are the best!


Excellent Flooring
My house previously had carpet flooring before Hurricane Ike. Our family had been on the fence as to whether or not to change to hardwood flooring. When the hurricane caused water damage, we decided to switch. We looked up nearby businesses that offered hardwood flooring online and we had found Dan's website for his business, Sunshine Hardwood Floors. We called him in to fix our house and we loved the work that he had done for the first floor so much that we changed the flooring on the stairs and second floor as well.
 
 

Mr. and Mrs. Goldsburg
I have never met a more organized contractor before I met Mr. Dan and his family. My hardwood floors were damage by Hurricane Ike, and it looked very unstable and had dark black spots in many areas. I called Sunshine Hardwood Floors and made an appointment with Mr.Dan to come by and do an estimate for my flooring. Unlike many other contractors I have talked to, Dan gave me a very outstanding price that fits my budget. When I gave him the job he was very punctual on coming out to my house. He was always at the job site, and did an outstanding job on my floors at the end. I was amazed! It looked so nice and new. I couldn't believe how my floors turned out. The wood now looks stable, natural, clean, and very new. I recommend him to anyone who wants to fix their damage hardwood or someone who wants hardwood floors.



Ms. Tran
Dan is the owner of the business. He really made it easy for me to move into my new home after he refinished my hardwood in my entire house. He works with his family and a couple of workers and he is always there at the job site making sure things are done right. Very punctual young man and I really recommend him to anyone who wants hardwood floors.
