My name is Franklyn and I have been in the wood flooring business for over 40 years. I have a wide range of experiences and welcome your input at my forum listed below. I started in the wood flooring business quite by accident and it has been a very rewarding career. I am originally from upstate NY.
I learned the basics of the trade there with a company which was involved in refinishing Gymnasiums in the northeastern United States. They also did custom houses where I learned how to install borders and other custom installations.
Shortly after setting out on my own I moved to Northern Virginia. I did a lot of historical renovation work in Washington, D.C. including an embassy. I did a 10 foot circle from scratch and also got do work in the Watergate Condominiums on wood floors. After 7 years we moved back to upstate NY for 5 years. I did the job of inlaying goldfish in a floor during this time.
