Peter Downs and The New Wood Company have saved the day on more than one occasion because they know everything about wood floors and the products available to them. Recently, they used a material ordinarily spec'd for another material on the floors in my own home, creating the desired raw, unfinished look I was searching for.  They know how to get the job done with no drama or stress, and that’s an invaluable tool in my industry.

The New Wood Company has an experienced, well-supervised staff that knows the product, gives excellent advice, and can be counted on to solve the inevitable problems that occur on every job.  When I was first told about them, I was pretty sure I couldn’t afford them. Now I know that I can’t afford to use anyone else.

Sean Sweeney, President, Sweeney & Conroy, Inc.

We loved working with The New Wood Company. They were professional, timely, and reasonably priced—plus our floors came out even better than expected.  James Doherty, the project manager, was great to work with, and his sense of color is pure artistry. We would recommend the company without hesitation: Our new floors really make the whole apartment come together.

My floors are so beautiful that I may leave the rooms empty forever, like an art installation.
