Many of my customers ask me how to prevent scratching in hardwood floors, so I thought these tips would be helpful.   First, let me preface this by saying that ALL hardwood scratches. It's just a matter of time. Yes, some are harder than others and yes, some have a bit more scratch protection than others.  Anyone that tells you the hardwood flooring won't scratch isn't telling the truth.   So given that all hardwood will scratch, here are some tips to MINIMIZE the scratches and prolong the life of your hardwood floors. By far, the #1 culprit of scratches is dirt/grit, so do whatever you can to minimize this.   1. Take off your shoes! It is amazing how large an impact this can have on your floor. I just went to a repeat customer's home...a rental. We installed the hardwood over 2 yrs ago...

Are you looking to sand and refinish hardwood floors in Pelham NY?   It's amazing what a difference refinishing your hardwood flooring can make.  Your floors will look brand new and you even have the option to change the color.  You can go light, dark, mid tones, or red tones. It can really give your home (or room) a whole new look.   If you have hardwood underneath your carpets, we can restore the beauty of the hardwood underneath. It's amazing what a big difference this can make in your home.  And, believe it or not, it is usually less expensive to refinish your floors than to recarpet.  Refinishing your wood floors will also improve your home's value and it will be easier to clean and maintain.   At Floor Coverings International, we are a shop at home service.  We will bring the "sto...

Refinishing hardwood floors - saved another customer some money - Pelham NY 10803 This week, I met with the parents of one my customers.  We had done 3 jobs for them and now their parents were interested in refinishing the floors for the rental in the apartment below theirs (it is a duplex in Pelham NY). The parents have lived in Pelham for 38 years, and they did not speak English well.  They wanted to refinish the hardwood floors for most of the area, and they wanted to replace the old/worn peel & stick tiles in the entryway/kitchen - with something that wouldn't cost too much (since it is a rental + they will probably sell the house in 5-7 yrs). As I started to explore, I noticed that a closet had hardwood...then, I remembered the kids' apartment in Hartsdale from 2 years ago...over 2...

 The Village of Pelham Board of Trustees approved a resolution "authorizing a nonbinding expression of interest in converting part or all of the NYW&B parcel to a greenspace" at this week's meeting.    The "NYW & B parcel" is where the New York Westchester and Boston Railroad ran through Pelham. The Pelhamwood Station was at Harmon and Storer Avenues. The railroad bridge overpass still stands over Highbrook Avenue just north of Harmon Ave.  Local homeowners have enjoyed the passive greenspace for decades -- a peaceful buffer behind the homes on Harmon Avenue (the south side of the greenspace) and "little" Young Avenue and neighboring blocks to the north. (Facebook: Pelhamwood Park) Twitter: @pelhamwoodpark  Homes were built on the greenspace east of the Pelhamwood Station over the town ...

The Pelham NY real estate market continues to show strength. The local Pelham real estate market continues to outperform the national market – certainly heartening news for those of us who own a home here in "Westchester's Best Kept Secret." The median sale price last month was $696,000 in Pelham NY – a full 18.1% increase over the same time period last year. There were 17 homes sold during the month – again a dramatic 41.7% increase over 2010. Another good sign of the overall health of the Pelham NY homes market is the level of “regular-way” home sales vs. those in foreclosure or pre-foreclosure stage. Currently in Pelham, there are 51 homes on the market, 11 condos, 10 co-ops, 6 2+ family homes, and 2 building lots available. With mortgage rates slightly above their all-time lows reac...
