Refinishing Hardwood Floors restores natural beauty to a home!
Laying flooring is simple carpentry. However, refinishing hardwood floors, even the finishing of newly installed hardwood floors is not simple. Refinishing takes lots of equipment and the kind of experience and techniques only years of experience can bring to the craftsman.
We can do wonders with old floors that have been neglected for decades! “Better than new” is what we try to do.
Often, new homes receive only two coats of finish on the floors when the home is built. Within five years or so, the finish may have worn through, requiring a re-sanding and finishing.
Older homes often have been victims of “do-it-yourself” sanders using rental equipment. Pets, water from planters, and carpet shampooing also impact older floors over the years. Usually all of these conditions can be overcome with re-sanding and finishing.
