What you need to know about hardwood refinishing

Everyone with solid wood floors knows that part of the reason they last so long is that hardwood refinishing can strip away years of wear and tear, several times over the course of flooring’s lifespan. When homeowners with any other type of flooring reach this point, they must search for a new floor covering. So refinishing can actually save you tons of money over time. In the short term, it gives you flooring that is like brand new.

Our devotion to the satisfaction of our customers, and our high-quality products and services have played a key role in those ratings.

Hardwood refinishing made simple

The hardwood refinishing process can seem like a huge undertaking and for someone with no experience, it is. The good news is, our professional flooring refinishers not only have years of experience in the craft, but they have all the tools and products necessary to bring your floors back to a like-new finish. We use commercial quality products and state of the art sanding equipment to ensure that your floors look amazing by the time we’re finished with them.

For even more peace of mind, our sanding crews are also trained in specific hardwood floor repair. This means that nothing that comes up, even as a surprise will interfere with the hardwood refinishing project. These repairs may be minor or major, but our professionals can handle them all. You’ll be notified, of course, and your specifications will always be followed so no surprise costs will ever be incurred for repairs.

The stains and finishes we use for your hardwood refinishing project are all industrial grade and will meet or exceed your expectations. We use only the best tools and applicators so that your complete satisfaction is guaranteed. And for the perfect finishing touch, we offer care and maintenance instructions that will help you take the best care of your newly refinished floors.
It is important to remember that recoating is easier and much less expensive than resanding. Recoating entails scuffing the top layer of polyurethane and then recoating with polyurethane. Recoating will take out minor surface scratches and dirt that have penetrated into the surface of the finish. If areas are neglected too long and the finish is worn through, then sanding is required. Floors should be recoated every year to ten years depending on wear. A general rule is to begin with ten years and subtract 2 years for every person and dog living in the home.
