Location: Pronghorn Ranch, Prescott Valley
Material: Urban Floor / Maple Sunset / Handscraped Series - 9/16 x 5", random lengths
Notes: 1,200 sf of new wood installation. This project included 460 sf of tile tear-out - a loud and messy job. As the Jeppsons were still living in the house during the work, we had to take great care to isolate work areas and protect the rest of the house from dust and debris as much as possible. Cabinets, counter tops, and adjoining rooms were all sealed off in plastic during the tile tear-out phase. When the wood installation began we worked room by room, completing one area completely before tearing out old flooring and moving furniture in the next area, so that the house could remain as liveable as possible. Below you can see before, during and after photos of this project.

We just wanted to express our gratitude for the beautiful job you did on our floors & fireplace. We considered a Big Box store - thankfully we found you. You made the process so easy for us, as we had never done such major work to our home.
We thought choosing the wood flooring would be so difficult, but you made our choices easy with your knowledge and experience. The care and thought you put into exactly how it was to be laid was amazing and turned out better than we envisioned.
Loved the wood floors, tile in baths and the fireplace turned out awesome.
Again, thanks for a great job and we loved that you took extra care with covering and keeping the mess of broken tile under control. I was concerned with my breathing issues but never had a problem. Also Sylvan – most installers don’t consider the owners belongings – nice that you took as much care with mine as you did with your own tools. We so enjoyed watching you lay everything out and how neat and organized you were in my big mess.
“Almost” wish we could do it again!
Thanks and blessings to you and your family,
Ted & Sue Jeppson
