Everyone’s got to start somewhere.
For Chris Latvala, starting out as a ‘Carpet Layer’s Helper’ in his hometown of Calgary, Alberta was just the first step on the road to creating Woodsong Hardwood Floors. The nature of the work appealed to him immediately and it wasn’t long before he directed his energies towards developing the kind of advanced woodworking skills that Woodsong has become known for.
Returning to BC in the early 1990s, Chris gained valuable experience working on gymnasium and sports facility floors with a legendary Vancouver-based wood flooring company. Wanting to broaden his scope of experience, he then transitioned to a company in the Fraser Valley and spent a couple of enjoyable years working on diverse and creative flooring applications all over the province.
Having acquired invaluable practical experience, Chris was able to start taking on projects as a solo contractor in Vancouver’s bustling renovation market. It only seemed natural that Chris establish his own company, Woodsong Hardwood Floors in 1997 and then incorporate in 2004.
A craftsman at heart, Chris has an established reputation for providing quality assurance and a personal commitment to excellence for both the residential and commercial flooring clients he works with. His personal ethic and attention to detail is brought to every Woodsong Hardwood Floors project.
