Client Testimonials

Quality, craftsmanship and superior customer service. Matt did an amazing job refinishing my entire first floor. Over the course of 27 years, this is the THIRD time I have refinished my floors, but it is the FIRST time I used Matt and his dustless system. Wow what a difference! ABSOLUTELY the way to go. Matt was not the cheapest estimate I got but I am SO glad I went with him from a quality and a service perspective. He is meticulous in his work and he’s very flexible. We did my 5 rooms in stages to accommodate a full kitchen remodel, which meant that Matt had to make several trips to my house to do things in pieces.
Finding someone in any aspect of the home improvement industry who is a master of their craft is a real “find”. That would be Matt. But finding someone who is great at their craft AND gets the whole customer service thing…well THAT is a rel gem! It was a real pleasure doing business with Matt and I have already passed his name on to several of my friends.p great.

Matt was great. What began as a kitchen remodel, extended to our entire first floor (4 rooms, 2 staircases to the basement, foyer, and mudroom). Matt was extremely flexible as we broke the project into 3 phases. The quality and detail was tremendous, we are extremely pleased with the results. We have Maple Floors and had originally wanted to do something darker, Matt was the only one who provided direct honest feedback on our choice. His professional opinion/feedback was appreciated. My advice is not to go with the least expensive company offering the least expensive finishes (products) , quality results come with premium and the results with Matt were worth the investment. Highly recommend Wood Floor Services and Matt.

Wood Floor Services was recommended to us for our remodel about 5 years ago. Matt did a great job then, and we called him again for the next round of remodeling. This job required refinish and new install of hardwoods and carpet install. Matt handled all of the wood flooring tasks and facilitated the carpet install, referring another excellent contractor. When Matt and Wood Floor Services say “dustless floor sanding’, they mean it. They work in a timely manner, and because of the lack of dust, we have not been inconvenienced one minute while they work. On top of his excellent craftsmanship, Matt is a pleasure to have around the house. He’s personable, funny and leaves no trace of the work (except your gleaming new floors!) You won’t regret your choice of Wood Floor Services to refinish or install your hardwood floors.

About a year ago we had some beat up painted pine floors redone. They were uneven, some were loose, etc. they came out fantastic and a year later the finish seems to be holding up great.

Kathleen Welter

Would definitely recommend Wood Floor Services. Matt the owner was very professional and always on time. He was able to squeeze me in on my very tight schedule. Doug did a great job on my 1500 square foot hardwood install. When the job was completed Matt came and vacuumed the house and installed ram board floor protection. He also gave me a hardwood and tile mop that he included at no additional cost. I felt that the price was fair and am very impressed with how things turned out.

Matt at Wood Floor Services recently installed bamboo floors in our new home and we could not be happier with the results. We had a tight timeline and other contractors working in the house at the same time, and Matt made himself consistently reachable and flexible with all details and kept us completely informed of all developments. We are new to the area and found Wood Floor Services through Google reviews, and feel truly lucky to have located such quality, professional work. We have already received many compliments on the new floors and look forward to working with Matt again on future projects!

Wood Floor Services exceeded our company’s expectations! Matt made our 10 year old office floor look brand new!

We had damage along with normal wear & tear, turning our floor into a long term project we avoided. While searching for the best option we ran into many speed bumps, and then we met Matt from Wood Floor Services! Matt was fair, reasonable, and honest in his assessment of our floor. He was professional and dedicated to seeing the job through to the end (which turned into a much larger than anticipated task!). We are so thrilled with our “new” floor, and happy we had not just picked the lowest bidder. Matt’s follow up with us shows his commitment to quality in his work. The floor looks fantastic. THANK YOU WOOD FLOOR SERVICES!

I wanted to thank you again for doing such an amazing job with our floors. Every inch, all the way down to wall edges, is gorgeous. I’m especially thrilled by your replacement/repair job – it is a work of art – the new wood is perfect match.

It was a pleasure working with you. We really appreciate how you kept us up to date on your progress. The only surprise was how much the house looks with “new” floors

Thanks again


I contracted Matt Rousseau, owner of Wood Floor Services, to refinish the floors in a house I bought in 2005. I had gotten a few quotes and Matt’s was not the cheapest quote, but after talking with him I had more confidence he would do a quality job. I was very pleased with the work and, when I bought a new house in February 2008, I hired Matt to those floors as well. I hired Matt again in March 2008 to refinish floors in an apartment I own. I’ve been consistently pleased with Matt’s work and appreciated his willingness to get the job done on the schedule I requested. I’d also note that Matt’s created amazingly little dust on the jobs he’d done for me.

We have a small cape cod style house which was a converted seasonal cottage. The floors were fir that were painted so we were a little unsure if we could even refinish them. Matt came up, did an assessment, gave us our options and the pros and cons of each. We made a decision to refinish them and they came out beautifully – we are so pleased. He even fixed a few other transition points that would have looked funny if he had not. He came in on time and on budget. We would definitely hire Matt again.

Thomas Vose

Matt and Nate were fantastic. They installed our new carpet on schedule. They worked diligently until the job was finished. They did a great job. I would recommend these guys for wood flooring and carpeting.

Wood Floor Services is a great company. 10 years ago, we hired Matt after a home renovation to piece together a new kitchen floor and refinish, and he did a great job. When we needed a similar service this fall, and to update the floors in other parts of our 1950’s house, he was the one that we called. The work is beautiful and our floors are gorgeous once again.

Sophie Herr

We’re very happy with our floors. I’d describe the outcome as transformational – it has really changed the look of our home. We appreciate that we were able to plan the job months in advance, and the work was done on time. We also appreciate that the job site was clean and tidy when we returned from vacation. My only issue: After we saw how nice the floors looked, we spent two days repainting the living room, because the walls seemed shabby by comparison. Now everything looks great.

Thanks, Matt, for doing an outstanding job on refinishing our entrance stairway. It looks spectacular. Given that our house was built in 1870 and had accumulated quite a few layers of paint on the stairs, we weren’t sure how it would turn out. But, your careful craftsmanship has led to a very impressive result. We also appreciate the way you let us know what was going on at every step of the way – what your schedule would be and what the next project steps were. We never had to wonder where we stood and your top communication skills kept us in the loop at all times.

My wife and I own a historic home that we are renovating both inside and out. The house is just over 200 years old. The wood flooring in the kitchen and dinning room are southern yellow pine. Our general contractor had several of their flooring subcontractors come out to take a look at the floors and none of them would commit to reconditioning them. They sited the difficulty and unevenness of the floors as reasons not to attempt the job. My wife and I didn’t want to replace the subflooring and put in modern wood floors for fear of taking away the historic character of our house. We found Matthew Rousseau on the internet. He told us it would be a bit more difficult than a standard floor recondition. However, he was up for the job! The final product is simply gorgeous. Matthew was able to sand and coat our historic old wood floors and preserve the rustic nature of our home’s character. My wife and I highly recommend Matthew Rousseau for your wood floor needs.

Matt and his team did an exceptional job installing new flooring with one of our investment properties. It’s not easy trying to conduct business while living in WA and our rental property is across the country in ME. Matt was a clear communicator with us and our property manager from day one and exceeded our needs. Something that also impressed us, after the flooring was installed, Matt took the time to go back out to the job site to do a final walkthrough making sure everything was perfect and met his high quality expectations.
We will be using Wood Floor Services for all of our future flooring projects.
Thank You Matt & team!

Fabulous work.. This company was reliable, honest and finished the job on time while we vacationed in Florida. He worked it all around our schedule. That’s our home with the Kimono hanging on the wall. No fuss, no mess, great price. Wish there were 6 stars.

I had the good fortune of dealing with Matt Rousseau of Wood Floor Services and am extremely pleased with the finished product and my interactions with Matt. Matt was very responsive to my questions and concerns. He visited my farm in Durham and offered valuable suggestions and comments. He promised a written estimate by e-mail the following day, which arrived as planned. I found his estimate to be very acceptable and encouraged him to start as soon as possible. We had initially discussed starting in early October. Due to some construction delays on another larger project, he was able to work me into his schedule at an earlier date. This was wonderful!

Matt promised minimal dust and he certainly lived up to his promise. From earlier experiences with floor refinishing, I expected to find my house covered with saw dust. This was not the case. I was amazed at how clean my home was during the entire process. In addition, the site was left spotless after each visit.

Matt and his co-worker showed up on time and very efficiently attended to the floors. While the fumes were noticeable, Matt went to the trouble of appropriately venting the air to the outside. We had initially thought we would not be able to stay in the house during this process. We were surprised to find that it was not only possible to stay on site in rooms away from the refinishing, it was not unpleasant. Our biggest challenge was that we had to control our dogs from walking in rooms which were refinished, while the products were curing.

What we had put off as being a daunting and inconvenient project has turned into an extremely positive experience with a very competent company. I would highly recommend Matt Rousseau and his team at Wood Services for anyone who is looking for a quality job where great care is given to the smallest detail.

Our newly done floors are absolutely beautiful and greatly enhance the character of our 178 year old farmhouse.

Many thanks for you at Landmarks for making your restoration guide available to the public and for your commitment to finding and listing the highest quality people to complete historically significant projects.

Best regards,
