Located in Portuguese Cove, NS, Dempsey’s Hardwood has traveled extensively to service most of Nova Scotia.

"Dempsey's Refinishing and Installation refinished and restored the hardwood and pine floors in our entire house. We should have taken before and after pictures! Our house is 69 years old and we hadn't touched the floors for 18 years: 2 kids, 2 dogs, and 1 cat later and the floors look great!

Scott's experience and professionalism enabled him to address and rectify any problem: e.g. he sourced matching pieces for sections of floor beyond restoration. Scott's service was timely, thorough and he followed the project through from start to finish. Scott's accessibility, reliability and personal attention to detail was invaluable in producing an end product that exceeded our expectations. For a job well done at reasonable cost I would recommend Dempsey's Refinishing and Installation."

"I want to thank you for the work that you have done for me for my business and at my home. The cost was certainly reasonable, and the level of attention, consideration for my needs/family requirements, and the quality of work was top rate. More importantly, I know that if there ever were any difficulties, you would stand behind your work 100%; you would be sure that we were perfectly satisfied. You have also offered references, and an opportunity to see your work at other locations.

This is a field where one could be fooled by a “bait and switch” approach to work: great sales person, but poor workmen doing the job. I have experienced that before, and I have also encountered disastrous workmanship and poor job planning. Your business is extremely professional, you are well known, and you are either with the workers doing the work, or not far away. We look forward to having you attend to further work at our home in the immediate future."

"Over the past couple of years Scott has worked on three separate projects for me. All with great results at a very fair price. From refinishing parkay floors which required extensive patch work due to water damage, to installing new pre-finished hardwood, as well as installing glued-in engineered flooring on our third project.

Scott is the hardest working person I know and extremely reliable. I would highly recommend Scott and will call him if I have any future projects.

Thanks Scott for everything!"

"Thanks to Scott we did not have to replace all the existing hardwood in the house we purchased. He said he could match the existing by installing re-claimed hardwood and once refinished it would match perfectly and look like new wood. It came out beautiful. Everyone who sees the floors cannot believe it.

Thanks Scott for all your hard work! We love our floors."

"Scott has worked on more than 100 home and retail renovations for me in the last 9 years. Scott’s extensive knowledge of refinishing floors (some of which were extremely old) and ability to source out “reclaimed hardwood” when doing patch work has always produced beautiful results. His work is consistent and reasonably priced. He goes that extra mile to ensure that I get the results I expect."
