What we do

Our story dates back to 1992 in 'old Italy' when we opened up a company called Redwood. Since then, we have worked in Milan, Venice, and Genoa for 15 years installing, restoring, sanding, and finishing all kinds of wood flooring. We worked with many exotic (and less exotic) species of wood, such as Iroko, Teak, Wengè, Afrormosia, Italian Walnut.

Job completed in Milan, Italy, 2003

  We welcome you to visit our Portfolio, where you   will find pictures of some of the wood flooring we  installed back in Italy.  Perhaps because the name of the company in Italy  was 'Redwood'--trees that 'old Italy' lacks--we felt  an irresistible attraction towards the New World and   more specifically, towards California. So, in 2003 we  created a company named The Magic of Wood,   Inc. and officially started our operations at the end    of August 2004, in San Francisco, where we   completed our very first job in the US. 

So, here we are, offering the same services and the same quality we used to offer to our clients in Italy.

Why are so we special?

Because we give free estimates even in this economy, no matter how far away the job site is

Because we always return phone calls promptly

Because we want our clients to be very, very happy with us

Because we will never tell a client something can be done when we think it cannot, or needs   to be done differently, just to interest the client

Because we are reliable, punctual, neat freaks, honest and polite

Because no job is too small or too big

Because no job is too far away

And because we love doing what we do and our work demonstrates that!
