Working with Frank has been a wonderful experience.Remodeling a house in tahoe while you live in the bay area can be scary and you need to find contractors you can rely on.We were lucky to find Frank for our hardwood floor remodeling. Frank is professional,reliable and trustworthy.We gave him the key of the house and he managed to deliver right on time within the quote he gave us and left the house spotless.He also worked with our tile contractor to plan all the remodeling. No use to say that on top of this, his work is absolutely beautiful and the wood he uses is gorgeous(we chose the white oak). We would definitely recommend Frank to anyone.

The following was sent in to us from one happy client:

"Frank I will do two testimonials and you can pick the one you like."

"My wife and I wanted a hardwood floor that could stand up to constant love making, we did not want to get splinters, and were not sure how to go about this. Someone told us about Frank and said although he new nothing about love making he did know about hard wood floors, I was a little skeptical but called him anyway. The first thing I noticed about Frank was his lack of hygiene, balding hair line, and he never shut up, I see why now that his love making was limited at best. He showed us some samples of floors he had done, not the best but we noticed that they were smooth and no splinters showing, so we took a chance and gave him the job. He was to show up on a Monday and start the work, didn’t tell us his work day started at 1pm because he needed his beauty sleep, had to agree with him on that but he still needed more sleep. Anyway he finally started his work about 3pm, did I tell you he never shuts up, and worked until 5pm. This went on for day after day after day, do you remember Murphy Browns painter who never got the job done, we felt he was never going to get done. Since this was our first hardwood floor we were very patience with Frank and hoped the floor would be everything we wanted, he told us it was going to be great. I do need to say that my wife noticed that some of her underwear was missing on several occasions, we are not sure if Frank is a cross dressed or just has a collection, so ladies get your underwear out of the house before Frank shows up. Anyway Frank finally got the floor done, we had two more kids during that time, and we jumped on it to continue our love making. The floor was so slick that my wife flew across the floor, hit the other side and broke her hip in four places, great so much for our love life, but not a single splinter on her ass. So would we recommend Frank for hard wood floors, if you are looking for a cross dressing man who never shuts up, are willing to have two more kids, buy new underwear for your wife, pay some medical bills, Frank is your man or woman, not sure. "

And here's the other one, maybe better use this one...

"We did a remodel of our home and the hardwood floors were going to be the center-piece upstairs in the grand room. We needed a contractor who would do quality work and help make our vision come true. We found that person in Frank and could not be happier with the outcome—the work was done with great care and on time. We will use Frank again on any hardwood floors we may need. The home is beautiful and the floors are so amazing. We are so grateful of thework Frank has done."

Jeff and Dolly Tillman

"Frank Aquilina recently put in a new hardwood floor for us on our Tahoe rental. He walked us through the whole process and made great suggestions. He really impressed us with his knowledge of all the various types of wood and the most practical fit for us. When the job was complete he followed up on a couple of items he promised…His attention to detail was amazing..Completely trustworthy and punctual…We would recommend him to anybody looking for flooring services. A great guy and a great team of professionals!"

"Dear Frank:

I visited my home in Tahoe Donner last week, shortly after you and your staff completely sanded and refinished all of the hardwood floors in our home. YOU DID AN OUTSTANDING JOB AND I CAN'T BEGIN TO EXPRESS MY DEEPEST APPRECIATION FOR A JOB SO VERY WELL DONE.

Frank, over the years it has generally been my method of operation to accept the highest bid (not the lowest) for different work on my homes that generally call for at least a couple of bids for comparison. I contracted with you over the other two companies who had provided bids, because I was so convinced by your knowledge of the hardwood flooring business and the issues and concerns I had for my specific job., the lowest bid by more than 50% less than the highest bid! I was not disappointed and proved to me that I did the absolutely right thing!

My flooring was almost ten years old and had ìyellowedî over such a short period of time. There was more than 25 square feet of warping in front of the refrigerator caused by a broken water dispenser line. When you finished the job, the sanding and refinishing that you did has returned the flooring to its original red oak color and finish. Needless to say, my wife is very happy.

Throughout the 5 days of the project you did everything you said you would doÖ.move all of the furniture out and then put it back! Also, your staff cleaned up very well such that there was a minimum of dust from the sanding.

Frank, Thank you so much. It is good to work with a professional! Please feel free to use this testimonial with others. And, if anyone would wish a reference for you and your company please provide them with my email address and I will immediately respond. "

Ron Pine, Esq.

"I never thought I would be calling my floor guy ‘bro’, but that is what wound happening by the end of my refinish job with Frank Aqualina. I randomly reached Frank after calling many of the Lake Tahoe region’s floor ‘professionals’. Frank so convinced me he was the one to hire with his thorough knowledge of everything hardwood floors. I truly felt my small job was going to receive the attention it deserved by hiring Frank. The end product not only turned out AMAZING, but Frank was extremely straight forward with setting expectations (which he beat by 3 days). Without a doubt, I will use Frank again when we complete our house, and would recommend him to all that want a top-notch professional experience. Please feel free to send me an email for a reference."

"I would like to way that the work performed was excellent. The contractor Frank was very well informed and courteous."

Dave Rodriguez

"Frank and Steve were superlative contractors. Felt very comfortable. If and when I can afford it, I will be a "repeat client!!!" I am very pleased with the job — also referred them to my friends."

S. Steinberg

"Knowledgeable, thorough, and professional guidance, from choosing the right wood through the finished product. Our new floor is amazing and has transformed the entire upstairs living space and kitchen. Frank is great to work with and you will be more than pleased with the results."

Mike and Anne Filce

“Frank has been a pleasure to work with for the several years that we’ve done business together. Beyond the fact that his personality lights up any room, he’s great at what he does. His passion for his work shows in every floor that he completes. Frank has always been a great communicator and very punctual; never over promises. He likes to take the time with the consumer to make sure they completely understand the process and the cost of laying their desired floor. I had the joy of testing Frank’s abilities a bit on my personal home by suggesting that he let his creativity flow and really try to WOW me. Well, he did that and more. Please look at the attached photos, but the Brazilian Cherry inlay into my Hickory floor tied everything together in my color scheme and put the finishing touches on my dream home. Everybody who has been in my home raves about the floors…..Frank’s phone usually rings shortly after seeing the work. Simply the best in town and I’ve spent 12 years up here in either the lumber industry, home building or real estate.”
