We have totally remodeled our house all the way down to the wiring. The house was build in the 70's. Some of the floors were the orignal hardwood floors. They still looked ok, but had thirty years of wear on them. We opened up the living room, dining room, and kitchen to make a great room. The old living room had hardwoods and we wanted to add them in the kitchen and dining room. Smith's did a wonderful job matching up the new and the old floors. it flows so well, you can't tell where the new starts and the old finishes. There are a few spots there from a puppy and an old rug if you know what I mean. They worked hard repairing that area. It is hardly noticable. Once the furniture is back in, you won't even see it. I love my floors! Only con I can think of is the smell. It takes a while to get rid of the strong odor.
