"We hired Chris to refurbish a very old fir floor. He very professionally and thoroughly described our options, the likelihood of success and the costs. We finally agreed on a new maple floor over the old one. Chris was very helpful in assisting us in choosing the flooring. And then the maple arrived and over the space of a week we watched in amazement as Chris lovingly handled each board and chose the joins and transitions with the flair of an artist. We are still finding "moments" that he crafted for us where one beautiful sworl or veining has been carefully joined to another to create a piece of art on our floors. We got rid of the carpets because the flooring was so carefully installed. Chris was a joy to have in our home. He was always on time, cleaned up meticulously, even recommended cleaning and care options. We highly recommend Knights Floor Surfacing. "

"Chris offered valuable advice on the planning of the floor placement and excellent attention to small details like color and grain continuity when laying the floor. The result is a floor I love and that guests always comment on."

"Working with Chris was a pleasure, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. He refinished two large floor surfaces and two staircases in our 1912 house. The job was challenging: an old carpet had left a significant imprint on the stairs, while the fir floors offered limited space to maneuver and required a lot of detailed work to get to each corner (and work around the existing trim). Chris took pride in his work, and his attention to detail was excellent — he would simply not give up until everything was done to the highest possible standards. He offered many different solutions to hide the imprint left by the carpet on the stairs, and actually tried multiple stains to let us decide which we liked best. At every step, he went beyond what could be expected: for example, when he found a leak in the bathroom after removing some of the trim, he arranged for a general contractor to look at it before proceeding (and did not charge us for it). Upon entering the house, he noticed that our front door scraped on the floor a bit, and immediately removed the door and trimmed it slightly to solve the problem. The final bill was closely aligned with the original quote (and, in our opinion, very reasonable given the amount of work) even if the job was more challenging and took a bit longer than anticipated. The whole time, Chris worked hard and very long hours, and was at the house all day, every day, from start to finish. Finally, Chris is a kind and pleasant person, we actually missed him when he was done with the work! We recommend Chris with no hesitation whatsoever."

"To say that Chris Viner of Knights Floor Surfacing went ‘above and beyond’ is the biggest understatement ever. He came out to the Gulf Islands to resurface our floors, stayed over and worked long hours, saving us time and money, and did a fantastic job. He was meticulous in both sanding and coating the floors – which had been heavily waxed and had a lot of discoloration. The Bona floor finish we went for is beautiful and the house is now transformed to the light, modern look we wanted. We had contacted several companies before choosing Knights. We chose Knights because Chris was so helpful even before he had our business – giving us tons of honest, expert advice and guiding us through sanding a test patch. His prices were realistic, in line with other companies. We can’t praise his workmanship highly enough – and he’s also an extremely nice guy."
