Hardwood floor refinishing


Understanding the hardwood floor refinishing process

Hardwood floor refinishing is the process that not only removes decades of wear from your wood floors but can also extend the lifespan of your flooring further. It's an excellent choice to revive your floors and add a brand new, like-new finish that will last another few decades before it needs to be repeated. Here are some refinishing facts that will help you to understand the process a little better.

The process of hardwood refinishing

Sanding hardwood floors is the first step, after establishing the need for refinishing, in the process as a whole. This step removes the layer or layers of wood that are worn, abused, or damaged, leaving behind a fresh layer of wood to start new again. You can add a new stain color and finish or keep the same ones you had sanded off, based on your décor requirements and trend needs.

Since solid hardwood is one piece of wood through and through, you can refinish it several times before needing to replace the flooring. With engineered flooring, the number of times you can refinish the material depends on the thickness of the veneer, with thicker options allowing you to refinish several times as well. The results for each will be as astounding as you expect them to be, giving you the look of a brand new floor covering in most cases.

When we begin your sanding process, we’ll discuss all the details with you, from start to finish, so that you'll know what to expect. Depending on the project's size and how many rooms need to be sanded, you might prefer to leave your home during the process. We will also let you know when you will walk on the flooring and when furniture can be moved back.
