About RippnFinish Hardwood Floor Refinishing

We are experts in hardwood floor refinishing throughout the Kansas City area.

At RippnFinish, our mission is to provide the highest quality hardwood floor to homeowners throughout the Kansas City area, while maintaining a level of customer service that is missing in the industry.

Our team of refinishers are clean, professional, and always on time. We use only the best finishes on the market and we will always stand behind our work.

During the initial consultation we’ll walk through your home, office, or commercial space, listen to your concerns and your ideas, and then present many different stain options and finishes based on aesthetics as well as other external factors (i.e. pets and children).

“On the job” we strive to offer unmatched customer service and communicate daily with customers on the progress of their wood refinishing project. Once the job is complete we provide detailed maintenance guidelines and tips for keeping your floors looking shiny and new.

Our company has also integrated innovative and convenient reservation technology into our service experience. Customers can use our reservation technology to book their bid consultation through our website. Both parties receive email confirmations of the appointment and can import the appointment into Google Calendar.

Some of the things that make us different

  • The online bid-reservation software provides user friendly scheduling for busy customers.
  • To go along with our environmentally friendly products, we utilize efficient/paperless estimates, that will be delivered via email to our clients before even leaving the bid.
  • With the 20″x20″ stain samples we make it easier for clients to get a more accurate representation of what the stain colors will resemble with the rest of their surroundings.
  • Throughout the duration of the project, our team will keep a clean, organized work environment.
  • Only the most experienced and professional crews will be entrusted to complete our projects.
  • There will always be daily communication with project updates. This way our clients know exactly what the status is daily.
  • At the end of each project, a representative from our team will come to the job site and consult with clients about future care for their new floors. This will help establish good habits to keep the floors looking their best over time.

RippnFinish exceeded my expectations from beginning to end. Their customer service was A+ and I was kept up to date about the progress of my floors, which made planning around the job easy. The quality of work was outstanding – like having brand new floors. A+ work!
