THE CLIENT: Leanne – Deerfield, Illinois
THE JOB: Dark ebony stained floors look great and these red oak floors turned out amazing looking with the custom stain color we mixed up for our client. The floors were stained with a mix of 3 parts Ebony and 1 part Royal Mahogany. Very dark, deep, rich and beautiful.
THE CLIENT: Karen and Tom Tomei – Naperville, Illinois
THE JOB: Tom and Karen had old, worn golden oak colored floors and stairs and were looking to update them to a more modern look. They had found some photos of dark floors with hardwax oil on Pinterest and asked us to match them. We were able to give them exactly what they wanted and they were thrilled as you can read from their feedback below...
When we decided to refinish our floors, we asked around and surfed the internet looking for a company we could trust. We came across Tadas Wood Flooring, a local company here in Naperville. After receiving a quote from another large company, we decided to go with Tadas. He not only came in with a better price, but we liked the idea of a smaller company, dealing with the owner himself. We checked references and both customers gave Tadas a glowing review.
Tadas and his team gave us EXACTLY what we were looking for. The color and the finish are absolute perfection. You have a lot to be proud of. We love our floors!
Our floors were a golden oak, which we were hoping to update to a much darker finish. After showing Tadas photos from Pinterest of the finish we were looking for, Tadas showed us a flooring sample of Ebony with a Hardwax Finish. Although we were nervous about going with such a drastic change, Tadas and his team gave us EXACTLY what we were looking for. The color and the finish are absolute perfection. In addition, his dustless guarantee is just that, dustless. His team was on time and professional each day. Tadas even disposed of the carpeting from our stairs and stained and replaced the molding below the treads and no additional cost.
The change in our wood flooring has brought our home completely up-to-date. The improvement is amazing. We have already recommended Tadas and his crew and will continue to do so. His work was everything we could've hoped for, and more.
Thank you, Tadas, and thanks to your crew. You have a lot to be proud of. We love our floors!Karen and Tom Tomei | Kenilworth, Illinois
THE CLIENT: Michelle and Tim Blomeke – Glen Ellyn, Illinois
THE JOB: Tim and Michelle had just bought this great house in Glen Ellyn and decided some renovations were in order before they moved in. Part of the renovation included sanding, staining and refinishing their 1600 square feet of hardwood floors in the 4 upstairs bedrooms and the living, family and dining rooms downstairs. As you can see from the pictures below (and their testimonial), the floors turned out great.

Tadas is very knowledgeable, professional and competitively priced
Naperville Hardwood did an excellent job in refinishing our floors. The dark Walnut stain really gave the old floors, new life. Tadas is very knowledgeable, professional and competitively priced.
We will definitely recommend Naperville Hardwood to others.
THE CLIENT: Name asked to be withheld – Winnetka, Illinois
THE JOB: We feature this floor over on the Rubio Monocoat page if you would like more details. But we wanted to list this beautiful dark hardwood floor here too. This is one of our favorite colors and a very unique look if you are after a darker shade for your home.
THE CLIENT: Mike and Jenn Buedel – Naperville, Illinois
THE JOB: This was a red oak floor that flowed from the entry into the kitchen, dining, hallway, powder room and up the stairs to the second level. The floors were pretty worn and the owners wanted to freshen them up and stain them a darker color. We installed flush mount vents to blend in with the flooring as well.
We are definitely happy with your work and love the outcome!
Since moving into our home 4 years ago, our hardwood floors had been a concern. They were worn, scratched, and not the color we would prefer. When we finally decided to "take the plunge" and have the floors restored, we weren't exactly sure where to go.
They were easy to work with, reasonably priced, and more than anything else clearly took pride in their work. Great experience from start to finish!
When we came across the Naperville Hardwood website, we were impressed by its detail and comprehensive explanation of the process and decided to call for an estimate. While we had a few different estimates, we felt Tadas was the best choice. He walked us through the process and answered our many questions with patience! When the project began the entire team was extremely professional, prompt, and friendly. Their attention to detail was wonderful.
Despite the fact that our entire first floor was being refinished, the impact on our daily activities at home were minimal.
When we were having some trouble determining the exact stain color (going from light to much darker), Tadas brought in multiple samples, pictures, etc. to help us get a clear idea of what would look good in our space.
Ultimately, we are extremely happy with the results. The color turned out great and the floors look absolutely beautiful! I would definitely recommend Naperville Hardwood and Tadas' team to anyone. They were easy to work with, reasonably priced, and more than anything else clearly took pride in their work.
Finally, when our puppy decided to chew a portion of our newly finished floors a week after they were finished, Tadas was very accommodating to come complete our repair during the very busy weeks before the holidays! Great experience from start to finish!Mike and Jenn Buedel | Naperville, Illinois
THE CLIENT: The Wang Family – Naperville, Illinois
THE JOB: The Wang family had existing hardwood floors in their home but wanted to extend them into the family room. So we laced new hardwood into the existing kitchen floor to provide a seamless expansion for them. Then we sanded down the new and old sections and stained them a custom color that they had chosen from our samples. They floors turned out great and the Wang’s were extremely happy as you can see when you read their feedback below...
Dear Tadas, Thanks to you and your team for doing such a fantastic job on our hardwood floors! We are very happy with the results and have received many compliments! The custom color you mixed for us is exactly what we wanted. It made the process of picking a stain color simple when you showed us actual color samples of our exact wood with different stains -- it was very reassuring.
You and your team really know what you are doing! We would work with you again in a heartbeat, and will be recommending you to all our family and friends!
We have worked with other hardwood companies in our previous homes, but the process was never this easy and fast. You and your team really know what you are doing! Even our painters have complimented your work, and were impressed when you introduced them to the high-quality, quick-drying stain product you used in our home, which they had never heard of before.
We love the new hardwood you installed in our Family Room. Paul did a great job of lacing it into our existing kitchen floor. Now, it looks like one smooth, seamless floor that has always been there. The original 17-year old hardwood floors look like new! Best of all, the house was very clean when you were done. There was little if any dust left behind from your machines , and even the garage was left exactly as you found it.
We interviewed 4 different hardwood flooring companies, but chose your company in the end for a few different reasons. Firstly, we liked how you promptly e-mailed us a very professional, detailed estimate listing exactly what products and steps you would be taking. Secondly, your quote was a lot more reasonable than most of the other companies and fit our tight budget. Lastly, the other companies sent sales reps whereas you, Tadas, came out in person and met with us. I like the "what you see is what you get" aspect of working with you. We could reach you directly whenever we needed, we knew exactly what steps/processes you would be following each day, we knew exactly what our floors would look like when you were finished, and in the end you even finished a couple days earlier than we orginally expected!
We would work with you again in a heartbeat, and will be recommending you to all our family and friends! We are so glad we took the chance and went with you and your company.
Thanks again, Tadas & Team, for the impeccable work!
Sincerely,The Wang Family. | Naperville, Illinois
THE CLIENT: The Lindsay Family – Naperville, Illinois
THE JOB: This project involved repairs, installation,sanding, staining and refinishing the red oak floors. As you can see from the photos below, they were in pretty bad shape. They most likely hadn't been refinished in 20+ years and were extremely worn out... down to the raw wood in many places. The owners were renovating the entire house as an investment property. That included removing a few walls and renovating the kitchen. That's where we had to install new flooring to match the existing oak floors. After sanding and refinishing, the floor looks better than new. All stains and damage was removed ro hidden under the dark stain. The client was were extremelly happy with the results, as were we.

THE JOB: We have a more detailed write up of this project on the Hardwax Oil page, but thought we’d better include it here too. If you want a really dark floor, this 3 step finish process provides a beautiful, deep, rich black result. Head over to the link above to see how we do it.
