Great experience with Gate Hardwood to refinish my original 1950s floor. I reached out to several flooring companies and Brian at Gate was the only one who listened to what I wanted (natural color with a matte seal) and didn’t try to change my mind by pushing a stain or gloss that I did not want. Floors turned out how I imagined and happy with them! Respectful team who started and finished on time.
