Last weekend I learned that Ford Lanes bought the approaches from Taylor lanes after the church bought the place "amen".  Not sure if they bought all 48 or just 24 since they only have 24 lanes.  They also own Belmark in Ann Arbor.  The Taylor approaches were 21 years newer than Ford and my guess hadn't been resurfaced much in the last 15 years after the Debassi (sorry if spelled wrong) family sold out.

Here's the differences between the 2 lane surfaces from my personal experience:

Wood is more friction friendly throughout the entire lane & is softer than synthetic.
Synthetic being tougher gives you that long & strong ball reaction since the backends are more cleaner than wood's backends.

I'm a full roller & proud of it. My current ball arsenal:
