  •   Mr. Hernandez did a great job repairing a section of hardwood floor that had stains on it from our dog.  You cannot tell where the patches are. This is not a job many floor companies are interested in.  He came promptly to give me a reasonable quote and started the job less than a week later.  He and his guys were very courteous and timely and left the place clean. I would call him again for any hardwood job.

      Gilberto Hernandez Installed new oak floors all through my house. He was really efficient, really careful, and really easy to work with. And he does beautiful work. He shows up when promised and finished the project exactly when he said he would. His prices were very fair especially when considering the quality of his work. I recommend him without hesitation.

  •   Well, after Mr. Hernandaz and his team completely refinished our mother in laws two story house, the floors looked brand new!  These floors had has carpeting stapled, water damage, etc, etc.  when I first saw the condition of the hardwood floors after removing the carpeting, I was afraid they could not be fixed as they were so ugly and scarred.  But no, after his amazing work, they look incredible.  We sold the house for a top price.

      With only 6 days  to go before we were scheduled to move into our new home in San Rafael, Berto came through for us in a pinch. We had been doing DIY upgrades (paint, molding, lights, etc.) on our home for several weeks with help from an experienced handyman, and naively thought we'd be able to knock out the sanding and re-finishing of our hardwood floors as well. After researching sanding machine rentals, however, and learning how much more complex the staining was going to be, we realized we were in over our heads.

    SO--decided to call in some help from an expert. After making a few calls and talking to other contractors, we were told it would be at least a six day job costing anywhere between 3-4K, and that we likely wouldn't get anyone on such short notice to do it and be done with it so soon...until we called Berto.

    He too explained that the job would require multiple days, but took the time to explain the process. I asked him if he was available to come and see the floors (this was on a Monday), and asked what he'd charge for a job of this nature. He provided a quote (more competitive than other contractors), and after rearranging his schedule, agreed  to come out.

    He arrived on Tuesday (next day) to evaluate and agree on the work that needed doing. We accepted his quote.

    Started sanding on Wednesday...

    Began the first coat of stain on Thursday morning...followed by another stain later that afternoon...

    Did the buffing and varnishing on Friday...

    And while everything was drying on Saturday, we moved our stuff in and around the hardwood floors as to not disrupt the setting process...

    By Sunday we were able to walk around on socks and bare feet, and by Monday, shoes were allowed.

    He did a great job--floors were re-stained from a scratched up cherry-like red stain, to a nice, clean and shiny brown walnut stain. Even our friend who works in interiors commented on what a beautiful job it was.

    This could have easily turned into one of those contractor nightmare stories, but it was so the opposite--he saved us time, money AND new homeowner stress, and for this, we are grateful! Thanks for the only one other review he has on YELP, we were able to trust that he would come through for us, and he did! Yay!

  •   Filiberto "Beto" Hernandez took my 77 year old oak floors and made them dazzling!  He also fixed a color error from the last refinishing job and seamlessly blended it into his work He had the best price of the three bids and was a reliable team member when it came to redo our house for sale. He showed up as promised and worked two weekends to complete our project. Less than full 5 stars as I would advise teaming him with a skilled painter who can refinish the 1/4 round floor board trim, as his sander can tear it up. Luckily  my painter insisted we remove them before Beto's sander could damage them. Beto also needed to mark the trim board better. It took a long time to sort out the puzzle.
    He can also refresh a floor with alight sanding and oil based finish. Nice guy. A good experience.

      Berto is great. He saved us when we needed it - we naively hired someone who said they could refinish our floors without asking for references and left us with a disaster and a hole in our pockets. I called Berto the day we fired the crook after seeing his reviews on Yelp and he came within 30 minutes, checked our house and called me an hour later with an estimate. The next day, he & his team started working. They did an amazing job. We couldn't be happier & we thank God for Berto & his team for saving us from our hell.
