Lawn Doctor's roots lead back to the mid 1960s, when friends Bob Magda and Tony Giordano took on the endeavor of reviving uncared-for lawns in their hometown of Matawan, New Jersey.

After they finish buffing floorboards, techs slather them with a polyurethane topcoat available in a satin, semigloss, or high gloss finish that can last up to seven years. In addition to polishing timber, they repair and install floors by replacing damaged planks or laying down new unfinished or prefinished boards.
