great service, professional workers




I was very impressed with my finished product. Your crew was very efficient, informative, professional, & over all helpful. I would welcome any questions from potential customers that would like to know about your work. My crew (Shannon) could not have been more helpful. He was considerate of the inconvenience that the job would cause my sick husband. The finished floors are beautiful. Thank you for your skilled workers.

they get the job done




Buff and Coat is very prompt and professional. They do what they say and they do it for the price quoted. They show up on time, and can get you on the schedule quickly, etc. I find no fault with Buff and Coat management. The result promised is the result delivered. That said, when the technicians arrived, they told me it would only take them about 2 hours to buff and coat my floors. 2 guys x 2 hours of work + some screens and polyurethane costs $1000? They did an excellent job and did it for the price quoted, but in retrospect I have come to believe, even if the prices are comparable to their competitors, I can't imagine why it costs $1000. I am satisfied with the results, but if I had the choice to make again, I probably would choose not to have it done.

Floors look great




The guys from Buff and Coat did a great job bringing 50-year-old hardwood floors back to life for a very reasonable price. Thanks.

Quick




Quick service, i.e. I got call for estimate appointment the same day and service completed the next day after estimate. I had one concern BUT they quickly corrected, again quickly-the same day I called back. I would recommend and use again.

Excellent service and price




Dave and the crew were a pleasure to deal with. They responded promptly and did great work at a very fair price. We'd recommend them to anyone.


Sand front porch




The Saunders crew did en outstanding job of sanding our front porch to removed decades of porch paint to reveal and finish a natural wood floor. They showed up on time, did their work as promised, and were pleasant to work with.


GREAT SERVICE




WE ARE VERY HAPPY WITH THE OUTCOME OF THE PROJECT.


Great, friendly service.




I called on Buff & Coat to repair a damaged stair tread. The service was prompt and friendly and the price was very fair. I'll certainly recommend them and use them again when needed.


Beautiful work at a great price





Floor turned out better than expected




Our entire experience with buff and coat was wonderful. We had very bad, discolored floors due to water stains. Spaulding met with us advised us to get the floor sanded rather than just buffed. They came exactly when they said they would, did the floor, cleaned up and we feel like we have brand new floors!!


Professional




From my initial request for a quote to the call to confirm my satisfaction with the work, every aspect was excellent. Appointments were kept. The job was outlined clearly in the quote. The work was performed well. I will use them and recommend them in the future.


Good finished product & price




The service team could have communicated better in terms of phone calls and updates to the customer.


Great advice




I was moving into a "new" house w/ 87 year-old floors. Sean (or Shawn?) gave me some great advice about my floors and then did a fantastic job making them look beautiful...


great job





most impressive!




They were honest about the need to refinish from the very first visit. The crew did an awesome job, much better than I expected. Floors look bright and new! I don't want to move now.


Great service




Service was excellent. Very professional and they did a super job. Highly recommended


accommodating scheduling




This firm did a very good job of refinishing my hardwood floors at a very reasonable cost.


Great Floors!




We have used this company 2 times. Our wood floors were awful under the carpet. They came in and made them look brand new. I have referred my friends to them. Efficient and they do what they promise. Even fitted me in so I could sell my house quickly!


Great service!





Went above and beyond




Took the extra time to make sure the floors were perfect before the coats of poly. His team is a great group of guys. Very respectful and put in the extra effort to make it a perfect job. Highly recommended


Quick, No Fuss, Quality Service




The estimate was set up quickly and the job was completed within a few days after the estimate. No long waiting for weeks! The results were beautiful and the price was so reasonable! The staff was personable and professional also.


Great service, beautiful floors




I got fast, friendly, professional service from the gentlemen who did my estimate and my floors. They gave me all of the advice and information I needed to get my floors looking the way I wanted. I am very happy with the company and with my floors.


Great Company, Great Price, Great Service!




Buff&Coat is very easy to work with, quick on respiring back either through email, text or call. Had to change date multiple times and was very accommodating, would most certainly recommend.


Great Job!





Great doing business with you awesome service





Great Service





Beautiful job. Awesome price.





Excellent Work at a Fair Price




I got 3 competitive quotes for the work needed on my floors (sanding and re-finishing, plus added shoe moulding), and Buff & Coat was the least expensive and the friendliest. So it was a no-brainer to go ahead and hire them. The work done was top-notch, and they left the house very clean afterwards as well. There was a small spot where a door had pulled up some of the poly, and they fixed it quickly. My only criticism is that I wish Dave had stayed a little closer to the job throughout the process-- I always like to know that the owner of the company is overseeing the work even if it's contracted out. But he did call me afterwards to make sure I was happy with the work, so that was good!


Awesome Job




Buff and Coat did an awesome job on my hardwood floors. My floors had old spots and stains from years of bad carpets and weak padding. They are original to the house so it wasn't an easy job to restore the look, but the guys did it and didn't have to replace anything. I am totally happy with the results and now recommend Buff and Coat to my friends and family.


Very pleased with floors and service




Dave Emmerling and his crew did a wonderful job on my floors and were very flexible and straightforward to deal with. When Dave came to give me an estimate, he was very open about his pricing and gave me options for a full refinishing or a "buff and coat" of my floors. (Other companies definitely pushed me to a full refinishing of everything and tried to dissuade me from buff and coat.) I opted to do a full refinishing of my first floor and a buff and coat of the second floor. Because the second story floors were not as damaged and would be mostly covered by carpets, and because I was fine with the current color of the finish, it made sense to pay less for the buff and coat upstairs. Dave was very receptive to that idea, while filling me in on the pros and cons. His crew did a great job and I am thrilled with how both upstairs and downstairs floors look. My only problem was with one area where the wood was rough and jagged (because of the way an addition was installed years ago). Dave's crew tried to smooth it out, with only limited success. That was the only part of the job that wasn't a complete thumbs up.


Professional, thorough, great communications, fabulous job!




Talk about easy transactions! Dave Emmerling, owner, came out to give me a proposal. His knowledge was very apparent, and he offered options, complete with telling us what would _not_ make any difference in how the floor would look at the end. We set up a date, and his people showed up on time, got to it, and got the job done. We had extensive pet damage (both dog and cat varieties) as well as water damage. If you looked at the floor post-Buff & Coat, you would never know it. We've dealt with multiple companies as we prepared our house to go on the market; Dave and his folks were among the most straightforward and easy to deal with. Highly recommend.


Fantastic refinish work




Daves's company did a great job on the hardwood floors at my mother's house.

Nunnally




Excellent service and results!! Would definaty use them again. Highly recommend!!!


Quick service, good work




Work was done well, on time, great value. I would have preferred some dust containment as there was a bit of clean up of the walls and such after. But the work was well done and the floors look great.


couldn't be happier with the results





Fabulous Floors




Great results, good price, good customer service!


Amazing!




Every opportunity for excellent customer service resulted in excellent customer service! Quality of work is stellar! On time, went the extra mile. Great group of folks!! I will use them again!


Very satisfied customer




Dave is very professional. I like his full service attitude. It was so nice to not have to worry about hiring movers. The moving of your furniture is included in his fee for refinishing the floors. I had very little mess afterwards and the full looked incredible. I would highly recommend Buff and Coat. 3 17 16


Very happy with the results!





great job




went on vacation and when I got homes floors were done and furniture was back in place - very convenient.


Great Price and Service




I have already 2 co-workers that want their floors to look like mine. I can't believe the difference. Only 2 days of real inconvenience (moving the furniture). The guys were great, on time and did what they said they would do. My bedroom wood floor was painted and they got off all the paint and it looks just as awesome as the other rooms. I am having them back as soon as I can get the carpet up on the rooms that held all the furniture!


Very Satisfied




I was extremely satisfied with the job -- my floors look amazing and the men were very professional.
