Our clients say it best.
I feel like I should return my free t-shirt. My wife and I found Pete's Hardwood Floors soon after we me moved and realized we needed to redo our floors before we moved anything in. We couldn't of been more impressed with this company.
Their professionalism, their product and their overall care of their customers is why I am still writing this five months later. I thought Kadee did a fantastic job training us on the "machines" and she didn't let us leave unless she felt comfortable that we knew what we were doing.
We even ended up calling her back several times for advice, which she generously gave. The actual process of "redoing" the floors was one of the most physically challenging experiences in my life, but every time I look at these floors, it was worth every minute of it. Thanks again Pete's!"
...after going through five different grits of sandpaper. I had to take a photo with my new friends, the floor sander #6, and the edger #6. I named Edger #6 "Beauty and the Beast," as it was a beautiful thing, but beastly on the low back. All in all, really happy with the final product.
Makes me smile just looking at the before and after pics.They are so pretty! and Shiny! Highly recommend Pete's for the best flooring edger rental in MN! ;)
They have improved this house unbelievably. People that didn’t see it in the “before” state don’t understand my joy/obsession. Just looking at these photos tonight, now that a few months have passed, I’m shocked at how bad they really were and that I was considering living on them in that condition. Thanks for all your help. I’m sure we took on too much but at least we felt like we knew what we were doing.”
Thanks for all your support and help, it was a huge floor measuring in at 900 sq ft but all in all it turned out great! Best buffer rental in MN I've been to.
of our master bedroom and hallway with the help of Pete's! Thanks to Kadee for her refresher course, sound tips, and enthusiastic encouragement!! Thought of you often at 1:00 in the morning...WHILE sanding, of course!! :)
This photo is of the bedroom floor pre-sanding--notice an outline of the claw-foot tub which the previous owners decided to spray paint while using the floor as a drop cloth! So thoughtful!"
"We'd like to extend our thanks and gratitude for the invaluable information posted on your website.
We especially enjoyed the article with compelling arguments against staining your floors as well as the follow up article since that is precisely what we're in doing. We found tips on your site that we have not seen anywhere else on the internet and we have done A LOT of searching and reading. What a fantastic business you have with an actual wood floor where customers can come in and get some practice!
We just bought our first house, it was build in 1955, has top nailed white oak throughout, with some nasty stains on it from being covered with a nasty shag, and probably a little mutt free to mark as he pleased on top of it. The reason we decided to stain was that we could get 90% of the dark stains out with oxalic acid neutralized with borax, but there are some slight shades here and there, and we think a stain will be a better alternative to 7-8 spots of new wood in the living room alone.
The original floor is incredibly tight, and even though I matched the boards with the same size oak and cut there is just a very slight gap (<1/16") between the new boards that I absolutely had to replace that needed to be filled. Short of replacing the whole floor where I'm free to lay the boards tight on both sides there is just no way I can replicate the original wood fit, or grain for that matter.
Anyhow, we feel more confident after reading through your articles and I will do a last check of the floor .for sanding marks with a bright light and a magnifying glass before staining. Our best wishes to you and your crew."

"A pleasure doing business with you all as usual."
Bob went back downstairs and looked around the kitchen some more, measuring it and taking notes. "This is a pretty straight-forward job. There won't be a lot of mess," he said. "And I have a brand new machine on order. It will trap almost all the dust." He handed Susan an estimate of costs and put us on his schedule. "It should only take a few days. You won't have to move out. All in all, we are pretty pleased with Bob's services.
Bob's advice, along with the most personable flooring edger rental in MN (to name one of many things they rent out), made for full, happy tummies.
