Our Work

We approach every hardwood flooring project as a chance to win a customer for life. We largely work off referrals in our community, but if you are new here, you can see just a sample of the homes we have helped build or refinish stunning hardwood flooring. Below you will see a series of before and after images progressing from left to right.

Home Flooring Refinish

A mid-century home in West Sacramento had highly worn hardwood floors with visible damage in the main traffic areas. The floor had been DIY recoated and patched a few times, leading to mismatched stains and patterns. To remedy the work, we stripped the varnish and sanded a 1/16 inch grade off the top. We replaced several broken floor boards from our reclaimed wood inventory to get an approximate match in the age of the wood. We then resurfaced the wood with a transparent oil based polyurethane.


“Blue Ribbon was quick to outbid other flooring companies. In two and one-half days they turned fifty year old floors in original beautiful condition. Bob is highly professional in following up to make sure we were satisfied with the job. His crew worked fast and efficiently. Highly recommended.”

Home Flooring Recoating

The floors of this Rancho Cordova home were worn from years of indoor shoe usage and pets. We were able to thoroughly clean the floorboards and do a light recoating, which restored the original luster, while adding a new protective layer.


“Excellent service and work at a very competitive price. I was so happy w my wood flooring that I referred them to my contractor who has also used them.”

Living Room Recoating

This modern 1960’s Lands Park home was being restored before being put on the market. The main traffic areas needed a recoating, which was completed in a day. We buffed the floors and then applied an oil-based polyurethane coat with a light shine.


“If you are looking for someone to reply to your e-mails quickly and arrive to appointments on time, Robert is your guy. He understands the importance of customer service while also providing quality work. He knows what he is doing and loves what he does which is so important. He does a great job of working around your schedule as well. I highly recommend Blue Ribbon Flooring.”

Custom Chevron Flooring Installation

Chevron style flooring is the latest style that is seeing a resurgence in hardwood flooring. While technically it is trickier to install because of the exact measurements and pre-planning required, the end result is a graceful, seamless point to point simple zig zag that creates a soothing consistent look throughout the home.


“These guys are the best! My experience with Blue Ribbon Flooring was fantastic. They were on time, on budget, and the work they do is nothing short of amazing. I had no idea a hardwood floor could be refinished to look so beautiful.”

Custom Parquet Flooring Refinishing

Parquet style flooring is a classic style from the 1950’s that has seen a recent resurgence in Sacramento homes for its nail free installation and retro feel. Its complex installation method gives it a unique sheen that can add depth and character to any home. Parquet flooring requires careful measurement, intense preparation of the sub-floor, laying out the entire floor before using adhesive and then carefully tempering the flooring with rollers to get a perfectly level construction.


“All around great experience. Detailed quote with options. On time. Kept us up to date. Responded to questions quickly. Work was done on schedule, completed on time. Refinished 900 sq ft of oak flooring that had been under carpet since 1947. Repairs and finishing were beautiful. Returned quickly to do minor touch ups. Quality work. Happy customer!”

Business Remodeling & Refinishing

We were invited to restore and refinish a worn out event space where the floors had become severely worn out in high traffic areas from foot traffic and shoes bringing in outside debris. We were able to remove 1/16″ of wood flooring to get to an even surface and then spot treat the discolored areas with custom stains. Once the look was consistent, we polished and coated the entire floor with BONA oil, ready to withstand high traffic crowds and look amazing for future events.


“Robert and Blue Ribbon Flooring were fantastic. They re-finished all the wood floors in our home – about 1500 sf. and the experience could not have been easier. He and his employees provided a terrific experience. He was prompt, his estimate was fair, he made NO mess and the floors look terrific. We couldn’t be more pleased.”

Basketball Court Installation

We got the privilege to transform an old gymnasium with floors that were broken and water damaged from a recent flood. We rebuilt the sub-floor and assembled a full size basketball court using maple. Installing long lengths requires careful subfloor preparation to ensure no unevenness. Ensuring such a large floor is level in all corners, requires special tools and careful planning. Upon installation, we sanded, removed dust with a HEPA vacuum and used a laminate seal after the court lines were laid down.


“First class service from start to finish. Bob answers messages promptly, delivers what he promises (and more!), and obviously loves what he does. Great crew, fair prices, and amazing results.”

Arden Fair Mall Carousel

We were thrilled to be selected to restore the flooring of the classic carousel located in Arden Fair Mall. The circular angled floors are the original woodwork and was covered in deep scratches from all the foot traffic. We refinished the flooring, lightened the stain to brighten the carousel, and several coats of finish to keep the floors intact through the thousands of Sacramento families that come to ride the ponies. 


Blue Ribbon Flooring refinished our hardwood floors. They are beautiful. The company did an excellent job: very professional, on time, and completed everything as promised, and on budget!

Floor Mural

Blue Ribbon Flooring was invited to manage and assemble a unique project that required nearly a week to place and cut. We worked with an artist that stated the design and we went about assembling it in a manner that would last a lifetime. We leveled, finished and stained the final assembly after approximately 80 hours of construction.


“On time. Excellent work..stayed within budget. VERY happy. They helped bring our mural to life with creativity, brilliant execution and efficiency. Forever grateful for the BRF team!”
