What is hardwood floor refinishing?

The hardwood floor refinishing can seem overwhelming, and this project is best left to the professionals if you do not have experience. Refinishing requires professional tools, commercial-grade products, and a lot of skill.

Hardwood floor refinishing is the process of sanding, repairing, and refinishing a hardwood floor to restore quality and extend the life of hardwood flooring.
Refinishing is like giving your floor a reset, removing any dullness and minor damage. While cleaning and polishing can maintain your hardwood flooring, professional floor refinishing should be done every few years to maintain value. If a hardwood floor has gone too long without a refinish, more work might be needed to restore it.

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.

From free estimates to finishing touches, we work with you to create a plan that works with your schedule, accomplishes your goals, and adds value to your home.


Buff and Coat, Recoating, and Refinishing Hardwood Floors

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

There are several flooring services that will restore your flooring and maintain its value for years to come.

Hardwood should be re-coated every year to extend the life of your floor.

"Re-coating" 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
  • Dirt that has penetrated the finished surface
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.

"Buff and Coat" is another term used to describe the hardwood floor re-coating process.

The buff and coat process will remove:
  • Light scratching
  • Scuffs
  • Minor imperfections

"Buff and Coat" is a popular service because it is the least expensive and quickest way to restore a floor without sanding. However, a "Buff and Coat" is not always a possibility depending on the damage.

"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.

All floors and finishes have their own innate characteristics and appearance. It 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.
