Making our customers dreams a reality is something we take pride in, which is why we’re giving you an exclusive look at our award-winning project, along with a big thank you to our loyal customers.


Inside the Award-Winning Project

SVB was awarded Wood Floor of the Year in the Best Manufacturer Factory Finished category. The project entered was a beautiful old-world, traditional estate set on acreage overlooking its own private lake.  

The final plans for the flooring project featured five designs in various areas throughout the estate. Once the plans were finalized, Steve Brattin turned to Distinctive Floor’s, Dan Antes, to create the walnut flooring. This project required intricate hand-beveling with a circle-sawn and wire-brushed surface. Once the flooring was milled, it was shipped to WD Flooring to be finished with hardwax oil. See the finished project below:


Steve Brattin said, crediting his crew, that the actual installation of the 3,000 square feet of flooring was “uneventful.” Given the complexity of this project, it says a lot about our team here at SVB. Whether we are installing the wood floor of the year, or doing a much simpler project, SVB is dedicated to providing the highest quality service and installation for all of our customers.
