“Roland and his team removed 1980s blue shag carpeting (It came with the house I just purchased) from my top floor and installed new hickory flooring instead in the bedrooms, hallway, and family room. He worked with me on what type of flooring would look best, priced out different options and negotiated the best price for me, and worked with me through the entire project. If you are thinking about other options, even a diy option, contact RoyalOaksFlooring first. My floors look amazing and the amount of pride Roland takes in his work shows from the first nail pulled to the last touch up finished is amazing and rare to find. As I decide what to do with other floor options in my house, I am definitely contacting Roland again.”

“I could not have been happier with the work done by Roland and his crew. Roland truly has the homeowners best interests in mind and has pride in his work. He treated my floors like a work of art and was extremely detail oriented. He was respectful and punctual and offered many suggestions throughout the process. He respected our thoughts and wishes and always got our approval before making a decision to ensure we were always happy and informed. I would recommend him to anyone that is considering installing new flooring. These floors are now the centerpiece of our home and all due to Roland! Thank you for everything!”

“Roland treats his work as an art form. He is a perfectionist, pays close attention to detail, and is very focused on his clients’ desires and best interests. He got me a FANTASTIC deal on the raw wood, which I really appreciated. He is fast and clean. Beautiful floors; this is the second time I have hired him and I refer him to all of my friends and clients!”

~K. Schaad

“Roland is a fantastic flooring installer and finisher. He is one of the few in the area who understands how to install antique flooring and how to use European finishes such as Rubio Monocoat. I have used Roland for my own home and recommended him to over ten other clients. He is a superb craftsman.”

“We love Roland and his wood working crew. He put in all the hardwood in our house in Annapolis, MD and he did a fantastic job! He is a hard worker and knows his wood.
My husband and I felt that he treated our wood floors as if they were his art. He was very precise and a diligent worker who took the time to get it right! Thanks again Roland!”

“Great Company to work with. As colleagues in the hardwood flooring industry, we have worked on some big custom flooring projects together. Roland is knowledgeable and has great reputation in reclaimed and wide plank flooring installation and finishing in Washington DC area”

“Royal Oaks Flooring did an amazing job on our 100+ year old antique heart pine floors. Roland and his team understand old floors and how to leverage modern floor technology to achieve the best possible results. Will absolutely use for any work we need done.”

“They came in and fixed a horrible situation, created by another, incompetent, contractor, in my house and provided great solutions for a couple of other problems. They installed the most gorgeous flooring and cleaned up after themselves.”

“I cannot say enough wonderful things about Roland and our experience with his team. We were at a terrible place in our flooring sanding and refinishing project with another local and very popular flooring company in Loudoun County. Our old flooring company botched our floors with cheap stain, they did a terrible job of sanding and were obviously rushing the job. After they sanded off the awful stain when we decided to not have them finish the job, I called Roland to ask for help in fixing and finishing the job right. I knew from stellar reviews and his amazing instagram posts that Roland had extensive experience with eco “stains” like the Rubio Monocoat Oil. From the start, Roland called me back within half an hour of me leaving a first message for him. He was professional, knowledgeable and very punctual. Roland came in and his team meticulously resanded the whole damaged floor. Roland also provided expert guidance in selecting the right product for our family (severe allergies and asthma) and unlike the other flooring companies I received quotes from, made sure that was a priority. He helped us pick the correct Rubio color even going so far as to make 20 different color samples on the floor for me because I was so overwhelmed by the different choices. He educated us on all the pros and cons of our most eco friendly options. He was extremely patient and helped my husband and I come to a decision we are so happy with!! Best part, we came home from our family trip this weekend and the house no longer smelled like chemicals! It was beautifully finished with the Rubio Monocoat oil and no trace of the mess the other company had left behind the week before. We will absolutely be using Roland’s services to complete the hardwood in the bedrooms and rest of our new home this year. You will know the difference as soon as you meet Roland between the other flooring people and a true professional!”

“We’ve been working with Royal Oaks flooring on the same projects together for about ten years. He is very professional and knowledgeable about hardwood floors and a one trade craftsman. Very easy to work with. I can honestly say he’s your go-to guy for your hardwood floors.”


“We’re beyond happy and have been referring Royal Oaks to anyone who will listen. It’s rare to find a great contractor that is the utmost of professionalism, you can absolutely trust, you enjoy working with, and you look forward to your next project with them, but this is what we’ve found with Roland and his team. If you schedule Royal Oaks for your job, you will be better off for it.”


“We had our home built and found Royal Oaks Flooring for our 9″ white oak floors. Roland did an OUTSTANDING job throughout the entire process. It began with him making and delivering many samples until we found the finish and color we had in mind. He is very experienced with the eco-friendly products we demanded (Rubio, etc.). The floors look amazing and his service is second to none! I would recommend him to anyone, for any flooring job, big or small. Throughout the home building process, I know how hard it can be to find good quality work, fair pricing, and someone who will stand by their work. Royal Oaks Flooring does this, and Roland is an awesome guy as well!”


“Royal Oaks Flooring did an amazing job with making our old floors look beautiful!! We wanted someone who was an expert refinisher and knew how to stain with Rubio Monocoat and Roland did just that. He sanded our floors to perfection and knows the Rubio product very well. The moulding was nicely installed too. These floors are now the focal point of our home! What a nice guy too, very friendly and enjoys his craft! I highly recommend him!!”


“Its hard to imagine getting a better result for a better price. We called around to a number of companies for quotes to refinish some floors and put down some new ones in our 1895 row home. The floors we had were in really, really bad shape. Not only did Roland get them restored, he found some matching heart pine for the new sections (which turns out to be really hard to come by) for a reasonable price. He was great fun to work with, always positive, showed up on time and finished within his proposed budget (when does that ever happen?) and was in constant communication throughout the project. He was also a true artist, gave us awesome advice and kept us from making mistakes, and was willing to work with us to make sure everything was perfect. When a few spots were still rough after the job was done, he showed up for an extra evening to fix them.

We were nervous that because he was such a professional, we would be charged more. The opposite was true. We couldn’t be happier with our floors or that we went with Royal Oaks.”


“Roland was wonderful. He went above and beyond to help us find the right reclaimed wood to match our 100+ year old pine floors (driving hours to get us a great match and a great price!), and then was great at both installing our new sections and refinishing our existing. He was always super responsive, nice, funny, flexible and helpful. It was also very easy to schedule with him, and we was incredibly accommodating to both our tight time frame and our other contractors. His pricing is fair and honest. Our floors look amazing now, and we’ve gotten non-stop compliments from our friends who saw them before Roland’s work. I would hire Roland again in an instant, and refer him to anyone who needs work on their older floors–whether it’s an installation or sanding/refinishing.”
