You Won't Find The Same Premium Level Of Hardwood Services For Less In Chicagoland.

About Gabriel

Since I was 16 years old, I started working on summer breaks in Romania trying to become financially independent. I got my start working in construction, learning the trades. Based on my hardworking reputation, I was offered a chance to come in the USA working in construction, an offer I quickly took. I was fascinated by the flooring trade even though I was told it’s one of the most physically demanding construction trades. In 2014 I got my start working for a larger hardwood flooring company out of Chicago, a few years later opening up SkyDeck Flooring to give the same level of service at an affordable price. I love what I do, and my goal is to get all my wood flooring jobs done as close to perfection as possible. Happy customers are what I strive for. Besides work, I like playing chess and ping pong ( I was playing in a lot of competition when I was in school), bowling and road trips.

Screen & Coat

Also called Buff & Coat, Recoat, Restoration.

$1.25 sqft Oil Polyurethane
$1.50 sqft Water Polyurethane

Recoating gives a fresher look of your floors by fixing minor scratches on the existing finish, but not the deep scratches that are into the wood.
90% of our jobs screen & coat isn't a good fit. The process doesn’t alter the look of your floors drastically, but there is a time and place for it.
The main purpose is poly wears down over years requiring a new layer to be added to continue to protect your floors.
Many factors go into the decision, please give us a call to discuss this option.
