Born in Romania in the 1970s, Vasile Contra learned woodworking from his father before moving to the United States in 1997. That’s when he started family-operated CV Hardwood Floors, and since then, his flooring has received rave reviews on Angie’s List.
“You have to satisfy the customer.” says Contra.“You have to be proud of what you’re doing and treat customers like your own family.”
That’s one reason Keshia Beasley appreciated Contra when he replaced about 800 square feet of Brazilian maple hardwood flooring with tigerwood flooring in her Chicago condo. Beasley hired him after an upstairs neighbor’s washing machine malfunctioned and caused water damage in her unit, she says.
She’s still impressed with Contra’s dust control system and praises him for allowing her to view another tigerwood project before deciding on the flooring herself.
“I love my floors” Beasley says. “Everyone that comes in says they like these floors better than the original.”
