Hardwood flooring refinishing companies understand the possibilities when it comes to bringing new life to old floors. The normal wear and tear associated with a family going about their everyday life in a home takes its toll on finished hardwood. Although it is one of the longest-lasting floor options, it can still fade, or get scrapes and dents. The best hardwood flooring contractors with experience will strip off the old problems and introduce a look that is as good as new.
Repairs and refinishing services remove the top layer of the boards so they are smooth and even once again. This is done by a professional-grade sanding machine operated by an expert.
Before new stain can be applied to an existing floor, its boards or planks must remove the old stain, sealants, and old, damaged layer. Many times, the homeowner has an idea about what shade of stain or color they want to use. If not, our design experts can even find the match of stain color to an existing floor to the one being refinished.
Applying new stain requires preparation and a steady hand to apply new color smoothly across the entire room. Re-staining a floor can revitalize an entire room or house. Imagine getting a brand-new look without the expense and time of having old boards ripped up and new ones laid down.
The preparations before staining can take place are just as important to a job well done as the staining methods themselves. A fully licensed contractor with experience sanding hardwood floors will take care of everything from start to finish. Sanding floors can be a messy job, but we take all precautions prior to plugging in the machine.
Sanding floors get rid of the ugly dents and dings hardwood boards or planks accumulate over a lifetime. Every time someone drops a plate or the dog runs through the room with scratching claws, damage could occur to the wood. Over the years, regular wear in traffic-heavy zones takes its toll. These can all be removed with a proper hardwood sanding that is followed up with stain or sealer.
Although an excellent option for most families and homes, hardwood floor refinishing can be too disruptive or expensive for some. Even with a very tight budget, the hardware floors throughout the home can be brought back to vivid, lustrous life. Floor cleaning and rejuvenation does not sand out uneven spots or dents. Instead, we use a professional grade wood patch material to fill them in neatly.
Using only the best products and techniques, we deliver a deep and thorough cleaning to the hardware floor. This can remove years of grime and buildup caused by regular foot traffic and polishes or cleaning products used over time. The end result is a gorgeous hardwood floor that looks almost as new as the day it was installed. When everything is freshly renewed, choose either matte or gloss sealant to cover the floor and keep it looking its best for longer.
After having hardwood floorboards installed, refinished, or cleaned, proper maintenance will keep them looking new much longer. Remove debris and dust frequently with a standard broom or a vacuum with a smooth floor attachment. Use only cleansers or other solutions specifically formulated for hardwood floors.
Another large part of maintaining the best wood floor possible is care from homeowners. Never wear shoes with metal-capped heels, soccer cleats, or golf shoes in those rooms. Do not let spills sit for any long period of time. Cap furniture legs with easy-slide supports or felt tabs.
Hardwood floor refinishing companies with the right knowledge and experience can improve the look of any hardwood floor and bring it back to its former glory.
Any hardwood flooring option is only as good as the subfloor it is installed on top of. The first step in making sure the end result will look great and last years involves inspecting the existing subfloor for any issues. These can include warping due to humidity, disconnection from the floor joists, water damage or mildew, or unevenness from the home shifting over the years or other factors.
If the existing subfloor needs to be removed and replaced, the professional floor installers will tackle this project with as much care and expertise as laying hardwood on top of it later on. Subfloor installation involves screwing plywood down securely to the supports.
Some subfloors are made from concrete and they are fixed or replaced in different ways. Once the subfloor is in the appropriate condition, we will begin hardwood floor installation.
