My brothers and I inherited our mother’s 50s ranch in Dogtown, and we needed to make some repairs and improvements to make it attractive to a buyer.
The white oak floor was worn in a number of places, but there was also a room with terrible pet stains, and in the hallway, a bad patching job next to the cold air return.
Jim Abeln suggested a dark stain to take care of the first problem and replacing the badly-done patch with matching wood from his stock to take care of the second.
His bid was competitive, and when the work was done, the transformation was amazing! Jim is very knowledgeable about and appreciative of the local architecture and housing stock, and I appreciated working with him.
