We are 100% satisfied with our floor refinishing job. We built our house 23 years ago and our floors look BETTER than when brand new. The employees were skilled and respectful.
Rose Ann Provost - Erie PA 06/2021
If I could give this company and its crew more than five stars I would. The owner got back to me and gave me an estimate very quickly. He even worked with my fiancé and me after our friends convinced us we could do the floors ourselves and we realized it was a terrible mistake. I called Alex back and let him know we definitely were mistaken and needed the professionals. He was quick to get back to me and make an appointment for us. The crew arrived exactly on time and spent about 10 straight hours on our horrible floors and did such an amazing job! I could not believe the transformation. And the team who does the poly coats did such an incredible job as well! Everyone was so friendly, respectful, and so very nice. If you’re considering hiring Express Wood Flooring do not even hesitate! And unless you’ve refinished floors a ton of times before and know exactly what you’re doing, just leave it to the professionals. All this work was worth every single penny and I’ll always hire them for any wood flooring need in our future.
Julia Hesch - Erie PA 10/2020
Took them less than a week to make 50-year-old floors look brand new. No complaints here. Thank you for your hard work!
Jen Moczulski - FACEBOOK - Erie PA 01/2019
I hired these gentleman to refinish the floors in my rental property. The former tenants were beyond disgusting, and left the floors stained with pet urine and God knows what else. Alex and his crew did an amazing job restoring the floors throughout the entire house; I never imagined they could look as good as they do now. The floors are 80 year old red oak, and are now beautifully refinished to their natural state with all stains, scrapes and ground in filth removed. I am 100% satisfied with their work and their price. Great guys to work with, friendly and professional, I would hire them again in a heartbeat!
Dana LaFata- Erie PA 12/2018
We had a floor redone for our baby's nursery. The floor has carpet on it for years, and, when we pulled the carpet up, there were years worth of damage on the hardwood floors. Express Wood Floor Refinishing made my floors beautiful again. They're friendly and honest, with reasonable prices. They do high quality work and every employee is very polite. I would definitely use them again!
Carolyn M. - Erie PA 07/2018
They did a great job installing our hardwood floors!
Amanda Austin - Erie PA 02/2018
We had 47 feet long of hallway installed with oak wood to match our dining room right off the hallway. They did a perfect match. We were absolutely thrilled. The guys were professional, organized and efficient. The timeline was right on along with the estimate. We would highly recommend this company.
Cheryl Bricker - Erie PA 01/2018
Alex & fine crew !!! Thank You sooooo much! You are the best!!! We are very happy!
Paul Barko - Erie PA 09/2017
Express Wood contacted us quickly, and gave us a very attractive, fair quote. They worked with our timeline, answered our questions, and quickly returned our phone calls. The craftsmanship is superb. I highly recommend that you call them. We're still waiting for their competitors to return our calls. We couldn't be happier with our beautiful renewed floors.
Mark Truitt - Erie PA 09/2017
The quality of work was exceptional. We were given a time frame for start and completion. It took one day to strip, one to stain, and 3 days for 3 coats of poly. The floors look fantastic. The stain and poly is in every nook and cranny and we could not be happier. Quick estimate, quality service, and done in a timely fashion. Worth every cent.
Edward Nichols - Erie PA 09/2017
Our floors came out beautiful. One of our friends asked if we replaced the entire floor. The price was reasonable and as quoted. Floors were done as scheduled. I would definitely recommend this company !!!
Michele Kauffman - Lake City PA 08/2017
The Express Wood guys did a great job refinishing these floors, and they were easy to work with. Very very great job! Made the ugly floors in my new house into brilliant new-looking ones. They were very forward about the billing (which was a good price). There were no surprise bills. Additionally, they actually read their emails, which is important because I dont like talking on the phone for personal things at work. Great job, highly recommended.
Karen Elizabeth - Erie PA 08/2017
We bought an old house and hired Express Wood to refinish the hardwood on the first floors. They were very responsive, easy to pay, adaptable when they tore up the carpets and found that more than an average amount of patching needed to be done, and still finished on time, and of course the end result is beautiful!
Jonathan J McLaughlin - Erie PA 08/2017
I highly recommend Express Wood! Alex and his team did a beautiful job refinishing our hardwoods!!
Jamie McKinstrey -Erie PA 06/2017
We had our kitchen floor refinished due to scratches from dogs and everyday use. Alex and his partner came and gave us great information and complete overview of how work will be done and terms. Crew came and covered everything else with sheet of plastic and did a fantastic job for refinishing. We've requested high shine, and now our kitchen floor is done professionally and looks awesome!
Chinzo Ulzii - Erie PA 05/2017
Outstanding Company I would give more then 5 stars if i could Alex and his Crew are awesome fast and highly professional.
Butchie Knight - Erie PA 04/2017
Express Wood does amazing work! Our floors were completely damaged and mistreated when we bought the house.. now they are the most beautiful feature in our home. Thank you!
Luiza Osmak - Erie PA 02/2017
I was very hesitant to get my floors refinished. They seemed like they were too damaged or in terrible condition, which in the end made us worry it would have been a poor investment. We were so close to just getting brand new wood floors, which would have been costly as most people would know. Then, a friend recommended Express Wood, so I gave them a call. We negotiated and talked for quite a while during or first meeting, because I was so nervous of how the final product would look. Finally, after talking with them and making the decision to trust them, we pulled the trigger and it ended up being the best possible decision we could have made. The price was more than reasonable, but more importantly, the floors look brand new! Everyone who has walked into our house always comments on how "beautiful" our floors look. They ask, "did you just put in these new wood floors?" I then explain they were refinished by Express Wood and the people can't believe how great of a job they can do. I will and have already recommended them to multiple people. There has not been one time where I have heard a customer being upset with their excellent work. They did so well with our living room, we just had them refinish two other rooms in our house! At least give them a call to see what they can do for you, if you are considering getting your floors redone. I am sure you will be impressed!
Scott Grack -Erie PA 08/2016
The crew at Express are top notch in Quality along with customer service. Alex and crew refinished our Kitchen and living room floors to an unreal quality and they worked around delays in our remodel process. I would recommend these guys to anyone who wants their original floors brought back to life. Thanks guys!
Justin Ternes -Erie PA 08/2016
Express Wood did a fantastic job painting our current kitchen cabinets and remodeling a small entryway and laundry room into a fully functional mudroom. Anyone who has seen our kitchen has asked if we had new cabinets and countertops installed. The paint finish is flawless (from cherry to white with a gray glaze) and makes our kitchen very bright and more current. I hesitate to say paint, because so much more went into it than that. They look brand new.
The new mudroom space is literally a dream come true. With new floors, cabinets and custom built-ins it is not only functional but beautiful. Several friends have taken photos and want to recreate the space in their own homes.
The entire team is friendly, professional, on time and very courteous. We are looking forward to our next project with Express Wood and highly recommend them to all our friends.
~Lori and Rich Sobin – Fairview 01/2016
Alex, thank you for doing such a neat & professional job. The color match is very good. I am very pleased at how well you got under the radiators as well. Thanks.
Tim Cross Erie PA 12/2015
Express Wood did a beautiful job refinishing our hardwood floors. Actually friends thought we had new floors installed. Would highly recommend this company not only for their workmanship but also for the great pride they take in their work. Their employees are courteous, friendly and hard workers! BEAUTIFUL JOB!!!!!
Patricia B Erie PA 12/2015
My house is an old house from 1915 with the original hardwood floors. It also had a gravity furnace in the past that was in the middle of the floor and patched with a piece of plywood. Alex and his crew did a phenomenal job patching the square where the gravity furnace was and making it look like the rest of the floor. The guys were great to work with and they worked hard to give you exactly what you want. I would highly recommend Alex and all the guys at Express Wood.
Michael Whitling Erie PA 07/2015

I can start with Ben and Alex were wonderful to deal with and my hard rock maple floor is about 800 sf in my restaurant in North East Pa. and it is a very old turn of the century (the last century) express wood took great care in doing the job and great care in taking care of me as a customer.the floor turned out so WONDERFUL !! and the restaurant looks so beautiful I almost did not Know it was the same Floor ! I thank them so much and as far as I am concerned and everyone that see the floor they are the only place to go .

Donald J. Bova North East Pa 05/2015
Alex replaced a water damaged floor in my house. He was able to perfectly match my original 80+year old floors. He and his team are courteous, punctual and honest. The job was done on time and floors look fantastic. I would highly recommend them.
Dr. Manisha Shende - Erie PA 05/2015
These guys have refinished several floors and are A+
Lawrence Zehr @ Zehr Building - Meadville, PA 03/2015
Alex and Ben are true skilled craftsmen and a pleasure to work with. Because of their creative and thougfhtful solutions and expert employees, Express Wood meets the inevitable "challenges" that go along with remodeling. The customer gets what the customer wants! They remodeled two bathrooms and I'm happy everytime I walk into one of them! Thanks Alex and Ben!
Dr. Bill Morosky - Erie, PA 03/2015
I wanted to tell you how very pleased I am with the hardwood floor repair you did at the Mayfield Drive house in August.The floor was so damaged by the first person I hired that I was afraid it would be permanent. You came in, looked at the mess and fixed it. The sand,stain and finish was better than excellent. The men who worked on this job were helpful,polite and a pleasure to speak with. One young man was exceptionally thoughtful because whenever he saw me come in the house he stopped working and answered any questions I had and was always smiling, which made me smile back and take away my anxiety. I will recommend you to anyone and tell them how professional you are and what wonderful work you do.
Again, thank you for helping me out of a mess. I cannot say enough of how beautiful my floor looks and the excellent work you do.
Roberta Lewis - Fairview Township 08/2014
Alex, the finished backsplash really exceeded my expectations & horizontal accent is right on the mark! Thank you for a very professional job!
Sandy Barns - Fairview, PA 07/2014
Love LOVE my refinished cabinet doors. Alex and Ben refinished the doors of our 35 year old cabinets and did an excellent job!!! They look brand new and we finished putting them up this morning. What a huge difference. We had a new granite counter top and tile back splash put in and the cabinets look brand new now!!! I'm just thrilled with them. Not only did they do an outstanding job but from take down to pick up it was all under a week!!! We added new hardware and I'm just blown away with how wonderful they look. Thank you so much Alex and Ben. We'll be keeping you in mind for our future projects!!!
Diane & Brett Clark-Green Township 05/2014
Thank you to Ben and Alex for once again doing an outstanding job in our home. You have beautifully built us a custom mantle and covered our dated red brick hearth with stunning wood and moldings and given the whole room a elegant makeover. Also thanks to awesome painting for great drywall and painting services. You all are professional, hardworking and have great clean up. We will continue to recommend you to everyone in need of quality work! You always impress us with your expertise. Many thanks.
Shawn & Jill Wallace- Lake Shore 12/2013
We recently had Alex and Ben from Express Wood install new hardwood floors and refinish existing hardwood floors throughout our home. We were a bit apprehensive about getting into such a big undertaking but we had complete confidence in these gentlemen after our first meeting. The floors are just beautiful! We could not be more satisfied. We were impressed with the skill, professionalism, punctuality, and attention to the smallest details that they displayed during the process. We recommend this company to anyone desiring quality workmanship. We were fortunate to employ them and you will be too.
Dick and Pat Heasley -Millcreek 09/2013
We can't stop looking and admiring our new floors - they look amazing! And what the quality! Yesterday we were moving the heavy wardrobe from one corner of our bedroom to another and guess what: THERE WAS NO SCRATCHES LEFT! Thank you Alex and the crew for your beautiful job!
Roman and Zhanna Bachuk Erie PA 09/2013
Express Wood refinished 2 rooms in our home (original 1920 pine.) On the first day, they were on-site at 8:00 am and worked non-stop until 4:30 pm. For the next 4 days, they arrived exactly when they said they would, and completed the portion of the job they promised to complete. They sanded the floors to the natural wood (one room had 4 different coats of paint on top of the wood,) applied stain, and applied a top coat for 3 consecutive days. The wood grain looks stunning. This is a no-nonsense, respectful team of hard workers. We will be hiring Express Wood again to replace our kitchen floor.
Kathleen Koehler Erie PA 09/2013
I recently contacted Express Wood Refinishing about refinishing my 70 plus years old hardwood floors. Alex came out the following day, inspected my floors and gave me a quote. They commenced work the following Monday and put the third
& final coat down on Wednesday. Needless to say they were very courteous and "on-time" while displaying a totally professional work ethic. My floors look amazing. In fact, my daughter-in-law thought that we had new hardwood floors installed. I have absolutely no HESITATION in recommending Alex and Ben for any woodworking needs. Thank you so much!!!! I am so happy with my "new" floors.
Cindy Pacansky - Fairview, PA 05/13
I cannot say enough about these professionals !!! I consider myself EXTREMELY lucky to have found these artisans. After seeing the neighbor's floor that Alex & Ben had done, there was no doubt in my mind as to whom I would use. The previous owner of my home, had let their cat treat the house as it's litter box, ferrous nails were used in installation of the floor, which caused black spots everywhere, etc. It was a mess. I CANNOT believe the transformation. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. I chose to have the stain, rather than the natural finish and the richness of the color is magnificent. I can't stop staring at the floors and I can't stop smiling, I am so happy. These gentlemen are professional, courteous, meticulous & honest ( which is a rarity these days). When it comes time to have my kitchen done, floors and cabinets, I will call them and them only, no doubt in my mind. Please look at the before and after pictures.( I had the blond floors, which are now a rich walnut hue). I could go on and on !!! Thank you guys for a awesome job.
Karen Salvage (Erie, PA) - 09/2012
Express Wood did an excellent job of refinishing the floors in our new house, which were painted over and water damaged. The floors look beautiful and even, now. Ben returned my calls promptly and kept in touch with me throughout the job. In addition the estimate they quoted me before beginning the job was the entire cost of the project. No surprises.
Colleen Peirce (Erie, PA) - 07/2012
Ben, Alex and crew just refinished the pine floors and oak stair treads in our 100+ year old farmhouse, and they look fantastic! Ben told me before they started that pine can be both tricky and inconsistent, and they had to also contend with the effects of some previous DIY floor work, but they did an excellent job. I very highly recommend them - these guys are professionals and craftsmen in every sense of the words.
Steve Woytek (Erie, PA) - 06/2012
Alex and Ben refinished old hardwood floors on the first floor of my parents old house. (living room, foyer, 2 bedrooms and hallway). All were carpeted for many many years. They look brand new and beautiful! Both guys and crew were very professional, courtesy and on time. Would highly recommend them to family and friends! Thanks for doing such a great job!
Pam Nemenz (Erie, PA) - 06/2012
My wife and I recently renovated our entire house and hired Alex and Ben to complete all of the finishing work which included all new wood floors, tile floors, kitchen and bath cabinetry, trim work, stone work on the fireplace and a half wall, custom fireplace mantle, and a custom tile shower that could fit an army in it. The Express team was great to work with, not one complaint and would strongly recommend them above any one else for their carpentry skills. Keep up the good work guys!
Erik and Jean Nielsen (Erie, PA) - 02/2012
Ben, Alex and crew are the best! Very professional and helpful from the first day. They are very easy to work with and are comfortable to have in your home. The workmanship is of master craftsmen. They created the most beautiful wood floors, two new bathrooms and a gourmet kitchen. They also placed santos mahogany floors and wood trim in our boat. My husband Don and I would recommend them anytime. Thanks again guys!!
Don & Cheryl Rettman ( Erie, PA - Asbury) -01/2012
Ben & Alex & the entire staff are the Best, most hardworking, pleasant, professional wood contractors @ the best prices! They did an amazing job on our 50 yr plus oak floors & stained them as dark as we wanted. We could not be happier! We were so impressed we had them tile our foyer & 2 baths & kitchen. It gets even better...when a well known kitchen store flaked out on our job they came to our rescue & expertly refinished all our cabinets from white maple to cream w/ antique glaze. Absolutely fabulous on every thing. Hire them you will be glad you did. Many thanks!
Shawn & Jill Wallace (Erie, PA -Lake Shore) - 08/2011
Ben and Alex are fantastic at what they do. They can pretty much make any floor surface look better than it had in a long time. My floors were installed in the late teens so almost 100 years old. They turned them into a nice uniform surface and brought back the vibrance in the wood. They are two of the most courteous and professional folks you'll find in the business. If you want a service done right and with care, give them a call.
Mark & Geri Olszewski (Erie, PA) - 08/2011
Thanks for your work. You guys did a nice job. We would be happy to recommend your company to anyone who needs wood floor refinishing work done.
Tom Kuhn (Erie, PA) - 08/2011
Express Wood refinished 4 rooms in my house. What a difference it made. I had a bedroom floor that had never been refinished, and it looks amazing. I had stains in my living room that they were able to sand out, and my living room looks wonderful. My kitchen was just worn due to traffic, and it looks fabulous. The guys were professional, courteous, helpful friendly and very easy to work with. I highly recommend these guys for your hardwood needs.
James & Linda Fleming (Erie, PA) - 07/2011
Alex & Ben are simply the best. The floors in our home are 65 years old and there were terrible stains on them from wet carpeting. They came in and refinished our dining room, hallway, living room and stairs and what an incredible job they did. The floors look wonderful!! There were a couple dark stains that just couldn't be taken out, but we discussed it with them and understood the situation and those areas turned out just fine. I would highly recommend their company. They are prompt, courteous and thoroughly professional -- we have already recommended them to our plumber!! So, thank you Alex, Ben and everyone at Express Wood.
Roberta & Gary Mahannah (Guys Mills, PA) - 07/2011
Fantastic job on the floors! Alex, Ben and Alex were very professional and reasonably priced. Our home looks 10 times better and we have received many compliments on the new look. Hire these guys, you won't regret it.
John & Kelly Brown (Erie, PA) - 06/2011
Fantastic, fast service.
Andrew Campbell (Erie, PA) - 06/2011
Alex , Ben and the rest of Express Wood and refinishing did an excellent job refinishing our hardwood floor. They had the lowest bid, and were friendly and easy to work with. We highly recommend them.
Mike and Molly Gatesman (Girard, PA) - 04 / 2011
Ben and Alex do AMAZING work. Our hardwood floors were extremely stained from prior owners, now they look like new. They worked with our timeline before we moved in and were punctual and efficient. We were so impressed with the quality of work they did so we had them install natural stone on our kitchen floors. They have great attention to detail and we highly recommend them.
Matt & Rebecca Eilts (Erie , PA) - 04 / 2011
Ben and Alex, thank you guys so much for a job well done. I have already began to spread the word about your work. The floors turned out beautiful. Very trustworthy and went above and beyond what was necessary! Highly recommended.
Robert J Veres (Erie, PA) - 03/2011
Very happy with the work of Ben and Alex.The condition of our floors was horrible...the previous homeowner's dogs had soiled the carpeting - the wood floors were badly stained. Express Wood was able to bring the wood floors back to almost perfect condition! We are very pleased to support the work of two young hardworking and honest professionals.
Dr. Mary Beth Pinto (Erie, PA) -03/2011
After we removed glue on tiles from the original wood floor in the dining room (a nightmare of a job-----who glues tile to a hardwood floor?), pulled up the carpet in the living room and replaced ceramic tile with new hardwood in the kitchen we called Ben and Alex to sand, stain and varnish the floors. What an amazing result! We couldn't be more pleased with the beautiful job they did. They were neat and clean and so nice too! We are enjoying our new look and are having fun showing it off! We have no qualms about recommending them to anyone who wants a professionally finished and new looking floors. thank you Ben and Alex .We are soooo pleased with the terrific job you did and would like others to know. The floors look amazing! thank you very much!
Leo and Mary Lou Krause (Erie, PA) -03/2011
My new hardwood floors look fabulous! I am new to the Erie area and consider myself lucky to have found them. Their attention to detail and professionalism were extremely appreciated. I would absolutely recommend Express Wood to anyone who wishes to have flooring installed in their home. These are two very personable and hard workers who take great pride in their workmanship. I was so happy with the first job they did for me that I had them come back for a second project.
Carol Bent , (Erie PA) -02/2011
Express Wood Floor Refinishing just completed my kitchen, breakfast nook, 1/2 bath and entranceway floors. My home is a 1932 brick tudor and had linoleum from probably the early 60's installed from the previous owners. When I tore up the linoleum it was glued down by what looked to be tar...floors were black. These guys came in and did such a FANTASTIC job...they have matched them exactly to all of the other floors in the home. I am so pleased with their work I would recommend them to anyone. They are prompt and on time, very organized, clean and two very nice guys. GREAT JOB!! Thank you,
Yvette Dunar, (Erie PA) -01 / 2011
"Very pleased with our "brand new" floors. They look beautiful due the great service we received from the flooring guys. They were punctual, knowledgable and personable. We would recommend them to anyone looking to refinish their floors."

"I had my living room and hall refinished. I was very pleased with the work. The floors look beautiful. The guys did great work Would highly recommend."
Joan G. (Erie, PA)-2010
"Ben and Alex from Express Wood in Erie did a beautiful job repairing and refinishing my hardwood floors! The contractor I originally hired to install, stain, and finish my red oak floors completely botched the job. His poor sanding left all kinds of sander chatter which, when stained with a darker stain, made the entire floor look blotched. After spending nearly 5K to have my floors installed, you can imagine that I was sick about what had happened. Fortunately, I hired Ben and Alex from Erie Express Wood to repair and remedy my floors. Ben and Alex represented themselves as consummate professionals. They gave me an accurate estimate, sealed off all rooms with plastic to contain sawdust, and sanded and finished my floors like old-world artisans who genuinely take pride in their craft. The results are absolutely beautiful! The price was also about 1/2 of what other contractors wanted to charge me (most just looked and my floor and decided not to take on the job because it was so difficult.) I would definitely recommend Express Wood Erie to anyone who needs professional woodworking."
Robert B. Hass, PhD @ Meadville, PA-2010
Hi Alex, You guys did a great job with our floors. They are still looking beautiful, and we get a lot of compliments on them. Thanks so much.

If you are thinking of having your Hardwood Floors refinished you want to call: Express Wood Refinishing & Installing! You wont be sorry!Alex and Ben did our floors this past week, actually completed the job this morning and I must tell everyone immediately about our "new" floors. These two men are the MASTERS of hardwood refinishing, they are truly talented craftsmen that love what they do. The pride that they take in their work shows from the minute they answer your 1st phone call to the final handshake of a job well done! We had almost 900 sq. ft. of 60 year old oak floors refinished and they look brand new! Their work is impeccable. The work site was kept clean and tidy with literally no dust left behind. They are courteous, professional, prompt. We are absolutely thrilled! Our floors are beautiful!! I can"t wait to have people over to show them off!
Thank You guys very much!
