It all started back in 2010 when the owner, Ray Horan, along with his brother and sister in-laws, Greg and Eileen Strejc, decided to open up Buff & Coat Hardwood Floor Renewal together. They realized that hardwood floors need sprucing up every several years to keep them looking “good” as well as to protect them from prematurely wearing out. They loved the concept of buff and coating a floor in one day, without the mess, nasty odor, expense, or hassle of a full hardwood floor sanding, so they decided to open up their business together. Starting a business in the middle of a recession wasn’t easy but during the first year, they worked tirelessly by renewing all floors themselves in addition to working on building the business. Looking back on it, the experience of that first year laid a wonderful foundation for understanding and growing Buff & Coat into the full service hardwood flooring company it is today.
Ray’s decades of experience in finance and business management combined with Greg’s thirty plus years of owning his own building and remodeling company, along with Eileen’s years of office management and marketing background produced a winning combination to help their business succeed and grow.
As the Buff & Coat grew, they opened their first office in Plainfield in 2011 and started hiring and training experienced hardwood flooring technicians the Buff & Coat way. In 2015 they started offering full hardwood floor sanding and refinishing, and hardwood flooring installation services for customers whose floors needed more than a one day buff and coat service. Today, a typical work week consists of delivering 2 to 3 full sanding projects, and 4 to 6 buff & coat projects.
