Our flooring crew is particularly experienced in working with hardwood and the refinishing process. We are dedicated to causing as little disruption and inconvenience to your home as possible. Before we begin, we enclose the working area in plastic sheeting to protect the rest of your home. Our sanding machines are directly connected to a vacuum system that absorbs most dust from the process. The small amount of dust that escapes is easily wiped away.

What to know about floor refinishing services

All wood floors require a finish to protect against wear and tear.

Hardwood should be recoated every year to extend the life of your floor.
Recoating is the process of scuffing the top layer of polyurethane and then recoating with a new layer of finish. Recoating will remove minor surface scratches and dirt that have penetrated the surface of the finish. There is a wide variety of floor finishes to choose from. The most practical and popular are urethanes or polyurethanes because they form a water-resistant protective layer on the wood surface. All finishes have their own innate characteristics and appearance. I t is important to discuss options with an expert like Above All Flooring to find the right type that will protect and prolong the life of your floors.
If wood flooring is neglected, the finish will wear through, and sanding is required.

Refinishing hardwood floors is the process of sanding and finishing with multiple coats over a series of days. Professional floor sanding equipment removes the previous finish and exposes bare wood. Depending on a floor’s thickness and treatment history, it can be sanded around 4-6 times in its lifetime.
Hardwood floors can be refinished every 7-10 years.

If your hardwood floor has gaps or warping, or you would like to change the color, refinishing will be needed.
