UNIVERSAL FLOORS is proud that our grandfather, David Lynn, was the 7th architect of the Capitol who built this awesome historic court in the land, on time and under budget. In 1935, this was a new building and since 1953, Universal Floors has restored, preserved, and maintained this incredible building. We are proud to say that four generations of Lynns have worked in this building. All the boards and marquetry used for restoration are salvaged from Washington DC homes that are slated for demolition. Our custom shop cauls, clean, and shapes the salvaged wood to the desired shape and size. "We choose to reuse"
