We start the hardwood floor refinishing process by sanding your hardwood floor with a rough sand paper to eliminate any depressions, dings, or inconsistencies and to create a solid foundation to start from. Gradually, we move to finer sand paper to remove all scratches from initial sanding. Because we use different machines for the main floor and edges, during the third and final step in sanding, we buff the floor with a screen to bring the edges and main floor together before applying stain or waterborne urethane.
After a thorough vacuuming process, we will apply multiple coats of either Oil-Modified, Water-borne, tung oil, wax or alcohol based finishes. Before applying the final coat, we will buff the hardwood floor to “knock down” any imperfections created by dust, or dirt. When the hardwood floor is prepped and clean, we apply the final coat to your hardwood floor.
Wood refinishing not only improves the look of the wood flooring, but also increases its longevity. Regular maintenance is the key to protecting your investment, but refinishing can help bring life back in to tired planks.
