What they say about us!

"Paolo is an amazing artisan! He installed hardwood in two of our large rooms as well as 3 flights of stairs. Paolo refinished our banisters as well and they match perfectly with the wood. He is hardworking, honest and friendly. At the end of each work day he left our home clean and dust free! Paolo will be re-finishing 25 year old hardwood floors for us soon - we wouldn't have anyone else!"

"When I realized there were sixty-five year old hardwood floors under the carpet of the home I recently purchased, I was excited. After pulling up the carpet and seeing the hardwood I was scared, really scared. The old wood had been through a flood, was scuffed, broken or non-existent in some places and painted in others. Along with The Magic of Wood and The Magic of Paolo, my floors are the glimmering jewel of my home and the first thing everyone comments on.

Paolo is a true professional, very hardworking and a sincerely kind and trustworthy man. I do not have the words to describe how grateful I am to have found Paolo and his magic.  Thank you Paolo!!" --LynDi

"We love the way our hardwood floor looks and feels under our feet...... it's a magnificent work of art.

When Paolo finished installing the floor throughout our home I told him he might want to change the name of his business to "The Love of Wood" because it seemed to me that our beautiful floor reflected the work of an artist who loves bringing out the beauty, simplicity and elegance of wood.  

In addition to a calm and industrious approach to his work Paolo also has a superior work ethic.....he stayed on schedule, on budget and cleaned up each day before he went home.  Paolo, you have given us more than we imagined we could have.....thank you." --C.M. Langelier

"We replaced our wood floor in 2010. Paolo is a great artisan. He did an excellent job and floors in all rooms and passage look fantastic. He is very patient , thorough and made several beautiful designs on our floors. I would highly recommend him and if I ever build a new house, he will be my floor installer."--VDewan

"Paolo Cipullo from THE MAGIC of WOOD, completed an excellent job on our home. He was very professional in his work. His sanding and finishing was done with little dust. Baseboard installation was done well in completing the assignment. His work was done very well and in a timely manner. The floors shine and are an outstanding work of a specialized tradesman.

Paolo is cooperative in his endeavors. He is quick and precise to work with. We highly recommend him for future work. He is on our top five of employees to call again in the case of needing hardwood floor covering." --MPage

" I live in Nevada City, working with Paolo was a wonderful experience, I am a very picky client, and Paolo was completely accommodating to my requests. My floors turned out exactly how I had wanted. I regularly get compliments on how good the floors look. I’ve even had a friend ask if my floors were laminate, because they came out so flat and even. I would, and do recommend Paolo to anyone in need of floor work --WP".

"Mr. Cipullo is an artist.  He installed wood floors in my home with a meticulous attention to detail.  He not only takes pride in his art, but he completes the job on time, within the estimated budget, and the area he converted was the cleanest part of my home when he was done.  His professionalism made this project flawless and a great experience. -- D. Cummings"

"From the first consultation with Paolo, I knew  he understood my vision to make my hard wood floors a special part of my home.  Paolo is a very hard worker and was a pleasure to work with.  Paolo is a craftsman and a gentleman and I recommend him without hesitation. --A. Streng

"I am very pleased with the job that Paolo ( the owner of The Magic of Wood) did at my house. I called and asked him to give me an estimate on an installation of a wood floor. He came to the house, took his measurements and promptly followed up with the estimate. I accepted it and I am glad I did. He suggested me where to find a good wood floor at a reasonable price and we started the project. The job was done professionally and in the time frame established and I am very happy with the outcome. I would strongly recommend "The Magic of Wood" to anyone that would love have wood flooring installed, to improve the look and comfort of the house or any other ambient. L.DeVivo, Mendocino".

"Not only Paolo loves his job but he is good at it. He came all the way to Folsom, CA, to fix and finish a badly botched job and ruined staircases. Previous contractors were carpet people and the floors they started to lay were popping up on places the next day. Also the stairs were made shorter by a couple of inches to the point where they were both illegal and dangerous. Paolo fixed it all and you should see my house now!

He did save my floors....and my wife from depression too! :-)

Thank you for the fabulous job you did sanding and finishing our hardwood floors. It was an exceptionally challenging job due to all the tight corners in my kitchen and breakfast nook. The hardwood floors in my custom built home were originally covered with a water base-acrylic finish that resulted in an unsatisfactory condition that led to early deterioration. I was unsuccessful on two previous occasions in correcting this condition through rework by local contractors. I was almost resigned to the fact that I may have to cover my floors with tile, because I was not confident that anyone could provide the of quality workmanship required. Thank you so much for a great job at a reasonable cost. Sincerely,  Nancy Bruhn"

"The Magic of wood has been our flooring company for years and it is a pleasure to

have them on our team, no matter what size the job. Paolo brings a unique mixture

of creativity and craftsmanship to the hardwood flooring world."Dean Paunovic Construction

"To Paolo from Glines Carpet One. Here is a copy of a letter we received from the Bauer's. I thought you would appreciate a copy. Thanks for the great job!" T. Glines

"Dear Carpet One, I just wanted to send a note and express to you how happy we are with your service. Your staff was very helpful, friendly & professional. It was quite dishartening when our floors were damaged due to the bathroom flood. Your staff from the initial contact through the final touches on our hardwood floors, made our crises a little easier to bear. Thank you. Our floors are beautiful! Please, make sure to tell the guy who came out to the house, we are very, very happy with the work they have done! October 31, 2007"
