WHY SHOULD YOU REFINISH YOUR HARDWOOD FLOOR AND HOW WE DO IT
Your hardwood floors are likely to have quite a few scratches and maybe some discolored areas after a few decades. If your floor has been treated roughly, this damage may appear earlier. You can finish the wood when your floors look old and worn, and make them look new again. Before they need to be patched, you can have most hardwood floors resanded up to eight times.
You need to make sure every 1/32 inch of wood is on the top of your floor before you begin refinishing. If not, you will not be able to proceed and need to consider replacing the floors. If you have no floor registers in your house, you should take a panel from a corner or wardrobe— anywhere to check the thickness. If you call us we can do it for you for free. Once the thickness is measured, you can hire professionals to complete the job.
Wood Floor refinishers
Once the top of the floor is sanded, several polyurethane finish coats are added by the flooring professional. If your floors were previously painted, the paint will be stripped from the sanding. If you want to retain the original color or change it to a new one, the floor must be re-stained, sanded and coated. Another choice is to go with the unblemished paint that should make your rooms look brighter.
In some situations, only the high-traffic areas in your house may be redone. Often the floor of the bedroom retain their appearance while the floors of the living room are beating. A flooring professional can sand the top of the floor and then put a new polyurethane finish over the top of the floor for floors that look worn but have no serious damage. This process is called screening, and no wood is removed, so it can be done repeatedly.
