Case Studies

Eleanor Stacey

A 100 year old Foursquare heritage home recently purchased near Commercial and 1st Ave. The client did not feel that the floors could be salvaged and seriously considered carpeting the entire floor. These floors had been sorely treated and neglected for many a year. These newly restored floors show well how heritage fir floors can come back to life with the rich character of 100 years of living. Fir floors tell a story indeed!

Bruce Preston

An 80 year old character home in the West Side/Dunbar area. A major renovation was decided upon which called for the repositioning of walls. The client wanted the old fir flooring removed from the now open hall area and the heritage oak flooring from the dining room to extend into the newly opened area. Working with the interior decorator and homeowners it was decided that a discreet feature strip would not only tie the two adjacent floors together but would frame the central hall area. The work of restoration was tedious and time consuming. What a reward and pleasure to imitate the craftsmen of old. We have tremendous respect for these craftsmen who at the turn of the 19th century would install these rich detailed floors by hand for only 8-10 cents a square foot! Can you believe it?

I am pleased to recommend Guy and Silver Leaf Refinishing. Guy did a fantastic job repairing, staining and refinishing our hardwood floors including installing new inlay where we had moved walls. Guy is a true craftsman who clearly loves what he does and it shows in a fantastic result. All the options were explained including stain colours and finishes and we got an even better result than we expected. I don’t think any one comes in to our house for the first time who doesnt comment on how great the floors look.

Greg Finlay, Strata G Flooring and Design

We used Guy and his crew to refinish the apartment floors in the building we managed. They were very quick and reliable. Their responses to our changing needs were excellent. They were consistent and always did a good job. We were very satisfied with their work.

Thanks Guy!  Your experience in the business is invaluable! (when called upon to assess a water damaged floor and where there were differences of opinions as to how to proceed from seemingly experienced tradespersons)

CWDI Construction

We just returned a few hours ago. The floor is beautiful. I appreciate you asking your clients their opinion.  From the first time we met, Geoff and I knew that you were the right choice for any of our jobs.  We are so grateful that we were able to have you work on our own floors.  The finished product exceeded our expectations and we would definitely continue to recommend you for any other jobs that come up.  In my opinion there is nothing that I could suggest for improvement!

You guys are. artists! Your duplication of the heritage white oak floor in the newly renovated area of the home was amazing! Heather and I are proud to show off our newly finished floors. I wouldn’t trust my floors to anyone else. (ceramic finish, duplication of existing and complete restoration of entire floor)

Silver Leaf Refinishing restored our dining and kitchen floor. The work was done in just two days in a professional and speedy fashion. We were very happy with the total package. We appreciated the attention to detail and meticulous care in finishing details. A thorough, professional job from start to finish. Thank you!

Lynn Spiess

The floors are amazing! I still cannot believe the difference your work has made. I had virtually written off the floors. Now it is a real pleasure just to be in the living and dining room with that beautiful hardwood floor.

Shane Starnes

The floors are just beautiful. It’s excellent. There is no dust at all! Nothing for me to clean up!

Terecita Banas (Housekeeper in North Vancouver job)

Thank you Guy and crew for such a great job on my floor. It looks fabulous, better than I thought and the process was faster than expected. Your crew was professional from start to finish and a pleasure to have around. Great job. (ceramic finish applied) I just wanted to let you know that I sold the property on Pt. Grey Road. The new owners will take very good care of the floors. I have kept all your good advice on file. I’ll be calling again when I do my next reno.

Francine Parker

Thanks so much for doing such an amazing job on the floors. They are GORGEOUS!

Lisa and Mike

I was very pleased with both the process and the end result. The floors look amazing and the stain and finish really bring out the texture and heritage of the wood. I repeat, I am extremely happy and will take photos so that other people can see the amazing difference. (ceramic finish applied)

Mike Addison

Guy, had soccer wrap up party on Friday night. 50 in total including parents. Mud and dirt tracked all over. After clean up, no clue of a party looking at the floors. All were impressed and have referred two couples to your name. I can see that the work was done with care and that much work was done to get them to the new condition. (ceramic floor finish applied)

Dan Carrier

I am very pleased Guy, your approach and now my new floors. I will recommend you to my friends and will certainly use you for any work in the future, a superb work ethic (ceramic floor finish applied). Many thanks.

Gabi Svedic

Guy and Glen did a first class job on my floors! They were punctual, friendly and gave careful attention to detail. I recommend Silver Leaf Hardwood Floors without hesitation.

Crystal McTavish

I appreciated very much the taking out of my carpet covering all the hardwood floors throughout my suite and disposing of it. And importantly, the price was right and I was more than satisfied. The floors are just as beautiful as when you did them ten years ago! I would recommend “Silver Leaf Refinishing” to anyone needing their hardwood floors restored without question! Thanks again. Give my best to the crew.

Joan Kennett

I can highly recommend Guy Casavant of Silver Leaf Refinising. His work is always well done with excellent attention to detail. His pricing was fair and he was always pleasant and professional in his dealings with us. When our hardwood floors were done they looked great and the suites were left clean and in excellent condition. As an apartment manager I can say our floors were a major reason why I never had any problems renting suites out. I am happy to recommend him and any of his services that he offers. You won’t be disappointed.
