Calvin Hoang: From High-Tech to Hardwood

By James Florence, Senior Writer

Calvin Hoang spent a long time aiming for a high-tech career, but he ultimately landed a more hands-on livelihood. “My father is a hardwood flooring professional, and I started working for him on the side while attending college,” he recounts. “After earning my degree in computer technology, I got a job in the high-tech industry but ended up being laid off. I returned to school, this time to pursue a degree in technical management, and also went back to working for my dad. After earning my second degree, I tried to get another high-tech job, but there was a lot of competition. One day I realized I had all this experience working with hardwood floors, so I decided to quit the high-tech hustle and start my own business.”

Today, as owner of C H Hardwood Floors, Calvin says his favorite part of his job is the freedom that comes with being his own boss. “I like being able to set my own schedule. Even though running a business is a lot of work, I find it less stressful than working in high-tech. Of course, I also enjoy the satisfaction of transforming old floors by making them look new again.”

Originally from Vietnam, Calvin resides today in San Jose with his wife and daughter. Outside of work, his two favorite pastimes are traveling and technology. “My family and I love to travel, and we’ve been everywhere from Mexico to Europe to Egypt,” he details. “I’m also very involved with technology—even though it’s no longer my job, it’s still my main hobby. I always have a new project going. For example, I recently built a solar generator, which I use to power the microwave in my work van.”

In regard to his professional career, Calvin espouses the importance of customer service. “When it comes to running a business, customer service and communication are just as important as the nuts and bolts of the job. It doesn’t matter how skilled or qualified you are—if you don’t know how to treat customers, they’re not going to be happy. That’s why I prioritize customer service and communication on every job.”

When asked what his life might look like if he were to retire tomorrow, Calvin says he’d split his time between travel and charity. “As I said before, I love traveling and there are still a lot of places I’d like to see. I’d also like to help in my community. My wife works for a nonprofit that provides food for the poor, so it’d be neat to be a part of that as well. Of course, I’d keep building computers and other gadgets just for fun.”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: What’s your favorite kind of food?
A: Vietnamese…but I also love pizza.

Q: Do you collect anything?
A: Electronics. I like to find the latest gadgets on Amazon—basically anything new or unusual that comes out.

Q: Who’s your favorite superhero?
A: Superman.

The Long-Term Advantages of Solid Hardwood Floors

SAN JOSE — A commonly asked question about hardwood flooring is whether solid or engineered wood is a better choice. Each has its advantages—solid hardwood is durable and allows for customized color and design, while engineered hardwood is affordable, easy to install… Read more

Roy Nelson: All in the Family

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

SAN JOSE – For Roy Nelson, installing hardwood flooring isn’t just a job—it’s a family tradition. “My family background consists of electricians, drywallers, framers and hardwood flooring installers, so I basically grew up around all those trades,” he explains. “Because of my roots, I consider my company a family business and continue to practice the same values and traditions that I was mentored with.” After 20 years, clients of Roy’s Woodcraft Flooring, Inc. continue to benefit from Roy’s combination of expert knowledge and old-school principles.

A native of the Bay Area, Roy lives in San Jose with his wife, Ai, and their four children. He says one of the things he appreciates most about the area is the melting pot mentality that characterizes it. “The Bay Area is a culturally rich and diverse place, but it also has a very inclusive mindset. There aren’t many areas in the country like it. New York might have a similar amount of diversity, but it doesn’t blend the way it does here.”

When he’s not finishing or installing hardwood flooring, Roy is likely to be found outdoors, whether hiking, biking or swimming. He also stays actively involved with his kids’ scout troops. “Between my four kids, I have Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts, so I help out with a lot of their activities, from campouts to canned food drives and other charity events,” he says.

When asked the first thing he would do if he could retire tomorrow, Roy says he would head for the Big Island. “I love the island of Hawaii. It’s not that I’m much of a surfer, although I might be if the water wasn’t so cold here. I just really enjoy the laid-back vibe, plus there are a lot of great opportunities for hiking and swimming.”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: Do you have a favorite sports team?
A: I like the Oakland Raiders and the San Francisco Giants. It’s kind of a mismatched allegiance, but those are just the teams I grew up rooting for.

Q: If you could immediately master a musical instrument, what would you choose?
A: Piano.

Q: Who’s your favorite movie monster?
A: Frankenstein.

Q: What’s your favorite dessert?
A: Chocolate chip cookies.

Q: Do you have any nicknames?
A: My good friends call me “Roy Boy.”

Q: If you had a warning label, what would it say?
A: “Contents Under Pressure.”

  • What To Ask References
    Interviewing Previous Customers of Santa Clara Hardwood Floor Refinishing Contractors

    It's best to choose a Diamond Certified hardwood floor refinishing company because all certified companies have passed an in-depth ratings process that most other companies can't pass. If you want quality from a wood floor refinishing company in Santa Clara County and the greater Bay Area, you can have confidence choosing a Diamond Certified company. Diamond Certified reports are available online for all certified companies. And you'll never be fooled by fake reviews.

    That's because all research is performed in live telephone interviews of actual customers.

    If you can't find a Diamond Certified hardwood floor refinishing company within reach, you'll have to do some research on your own. If you do, it's wise to call some references provided by your wood floor refinishing company. Keep in mind, though, that references provided to you by the wood floor refinishing company are not equal in value to the large random sample of customers surveyed during the Diamond Certified ratings process. Instead, references given to customers from companies are often cherry-picked instead of randomly selected from all their customers.

    If you do call references on your own, specifically ask for a list of the company's 10 most recent customers. This will help avoid them giving you the names of only customers they know were satisfied.

    • Were you satisfied with the service from (hardwood floor refinishing company name)?
    • Did the contractor show up on time?
    • Would you recommend this hardwood flooring refinishing company to your family and friends?
    • Did they clean up after completing the job?
    • Did they finish the job on time?

  • How To Work With
    Sign a Contract With a Santa Clara County Hardwood Flooring Refinishing Company

    Now that you've located a local hardwood floor refinishing company in Santa Clara County that meets all your ideals, it's the perfect time to ask for a written contract. This contract should include written details on the price, quality and materials to be used, as well as the job start date and intended completion date.

    Before you sign the contract, read and be sure you understand all the terms and limitations. The contract you sign is binding, and should protect your property and your interests, as well as those of your contractor. For this reason, you should never sign a blank or incomplete estimate.

    When signing the contract, don't hesitate to put special requests or verbal agreements in writing. This will protect you and help ensure you get the services you have agreed on. Along with end dates and any special instructions, these add-ons may also include related issues that aren't always covered by a standard contract. For example, regardless of how careful your contractor promises to be, sometimes damage can unexpectedly occur when refinishing a hardwood floor.

    But you can protect your property by being proactive. Before the work starts, schedule a walk through with the company supervisor and conduct a pre-work inspection of your property. List or photograph your home and the areas surrounding where the hardwood floor will be refinished. Speak with a company representative about reasonable expectations for protecting your home during the work. When you've reached an agreement, both you and the contractor should sign and date the document. When the work is done, do a final inspection together and verify that your expectations were met.

    Signing a Service Agreement with Your Hardwood Floor Company
    When you're completely satisfied with the information your Santa Clara County hardwood flooring refinishing company has given you, sign the estimate and service agreement. Verify that the hardwood floor refinishing company has a phone number where they can reach you at all times.

    If the actual costs exceed the amount agreed upon on your estimate, make sure that the hardwood floor refinishing company representative gets your final approval before moving ahead with refinishing the hardwood flooring. Your approval must be noted on the estimate and the invoice.

Top 10 Requests
Common Service Requests for Wood Floor Refinishing Companies

Hardwood floor refinishing companies in Santa Clara County, including the larger cities of San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Mountain View, and Milpitas, provide all types of refinishing for floorings. Following is a list of the most popular refinishing requests.

Swedish Finishes
Swedish finishes are high performing but expensive. This type of finish provides excellent durability, it dries quickly, and it is recoatable. The disadvantages of a Swedish finish are that it is very difficult to apply and requires a carefully sanded floor.

Wood Floor Waxes
Waxing is not as common as it was in the past as it requires a stain or grain sealer prior to waxing. However, a wax finish does protect and extend the life of oil finishes. It is easy to apply, dries quickly, and is very durable. The disadvantages to waxing include that it requires maintenance such as touch-ups, buffing, and periodic removal and then rewaxing. It can become brittle and yellow the wood flooring. It can also be slippery when it's wet.

Oil Finishes for Wood Flooring
Oil finishes often have wax added them which provides additional protection against spills and abrasion. A hardwood floor with a new oil finish will dry quickly. The disadvantage of an oil finish is that it is not as durable as other finishes and it can take a long time to completely cure. Sometimes a finished wood floor with an oil finish will require waxing. It can also water-spot and collect dust. Oil-based finishes are amber in color.

Moisture-Cured Finishes
Moisture-cured finishes react with the moisture in the air in order to dry. Moisture-cured finishes have outstanding durability and provide the hardest wearing surfaces. This finish dries rapidly in a moist environment. The disadvantages of a moisture-cured finish include that it is difficult to apply and available only in a glossy finish. If the humidity changes significantly, it can lead to blistering or other defects. When dry this finish appears clear to amber in color.

Hardwood Floor Bleaching Services
Most hardwood floors can be bleached for the purpose of complementing a d/(c)cor. Darker hardwoods such as red oak, hickory, and ash are well-suited for bleaching. Unfortunately, bleaching can weaken the wood fibers making the floors more susceptible to the wear of regular foot traffic.

Water-Based Finishes
Water-based finishes are typically combinations of urethanes and acrylics with a catalyst mixed application. The rule of thumb is the higher the percentage of urethane, the more expensive yet durable the finish. Water-based finishes appear clear and will resist turning yellow over time. They have a good durability, dry quickly, and are non-flammable. However, water-based urethane finishes require more coats than solvent-based urethanes, and new coats of finish may not adhere as well to old coats of finish.

Coloring Hardwood Floors
Coloring refers to applying varying degrees of pigmented stains to lighter-hued wood in order to highlight the grain of the wood and add color.

Pickling Wood Floors
Pickling adds a stain to the pores and crevices of hardwood floors that contrasts with a bleached finish.

Antiquing Hardwood Floors
Antiquing refers to the process of making hardwood look "aged" by distressing the edges, crevices, and cracks of the wood.

Acid-Cured Finishes for Hardwood Floors
Acid-cured finishes dry quickly and are highly durable. They appear clear to lightly amber in color.

Q: How long does it take to refinish a hardwood floor?
A: The average time that it takes to refinish a 1000 square foot area takes four to give days. Most buildings or homes have central heating that allows a refinishing company to keep the humidity under control which allows for the project to be completed faster.

Q: Will I have to move out of my house while the floors are being refinished?
A: It actually depends on the floor plan of your home. If you have a downstairs unit, you can stay there. However, if you have children, it is advisable that you stay elsewhere as the fumes from the refinishing can be slightly toxic as they are first drying. It is preferable that you are not living in the home during the last two days of finishing.

Q: What about dust control while refinishing my hardwood floors?
A: Most hardwood floor refinishing companies have dust control vacuum systems on their machines.

Q: How extensive is preparation for refinishing a hardwood floor?
A: Preparing to refinish a hardwood floor is not as extensive as painting a house. Basically the work area is contained which includes masking off any doorways to rooms that aren't being worked in such as kitchens and baths.

Q: When I removed my carpet so that I could sand and refinish my hardwood floors, I noticed several pet stains and water stains. Can they be sanded out or repaired?
A: Deep stains will rarely sand out of the floor. The darker the stain, the deeper it is in the wood. The only solution is to replace the damaged wood. Sometimes you can replace a section of the hardwood floor if the bad stain is in a small, hidden area, such as a closet. But often when you replace a section with new wood, it may not perfectly match the existing floor. The best solution for multiple problems such as pet or water stains is to replace the entire floor.

Q: What will screening my floor accomplish? Is it as effective as sanding and refinishing?
A. Screening the floor will only remove light marks caused by normal wear and tear. Once the floor is lightly sanded, otherwise known as screening, it will typically be coated with one coat of finish. It usually only takes one day to screen and recoat a hardwood floor. However, screening will not remove deeper scratches and indentations. Also, screening will not help a floor that has been worn down to the stain. In these cases, the floor should be completely sanded and refinished.

Q: How long do I have to wait before I can walk on my newly finished hardwood floors?
A: A newly finished floor can be walked on as quickly as 2-3 hours after finishing. You will want to wait at least two days before you move furniture back on the floors. You should wait at least a week before putting down an area rug.

Q: What is the best way to speed up the drying process?
A: After the floor has been refinished, leave the air conditioning or heat on at 70 degrees. Turn on fans and set them up so that they move the air away from the newly finished floors.
