SANDING & REFINISHING HARDWOOD FLOORS

Specializing in the intricate art of sanding, staining, and refinishing hardwood floors, our expertise lies in the realm of traditional hardwood floor restoration. Allow us to conduct an on-site visit, where we meticulously assess the current state of your hardwood floors. To the untrained eye, these surfaces may appear uniform, but our extensive three-decade experience equips us to delve deeper into the nuances. We methodically evaluate factors such as the wood species, whether it was pre-finished or finished on-site, the presence of a top nail, and the thickness of the top layer, among other critical details.

During this personalized visit, we also seek to understand your unique preferences. Hardwood floor refinishing is not just a technical process; it's an art that grants you the freedom to choose the colour, finish, and overall aesthetic that aligns seamlessly with your vision for the space. Our commitment is not only to restore your floors but to tailor the refinishing process to reflect your individual style and preferences.

SANDLESS FLOOR REFINISHING

If you find yourself generally satisfied with your existing hardwood floors but notice a loss of their former brightness, despite regular mopping falling short in restoring their lustre, we have a solution for you! Enter sandless hardwood floor refinishing, commonly referred to as recoating. This method involves removing the worn top layer of the finish and applying a fresh coat, revitalizing your floors, and restoring their original brilliance. Additionally, regular recoating can contribute to enhancing the durability and lifespan of your floors, ultimately proving to be a cost-effective investment for your wallet!

COMPLETE HARDWOOD FLOOR RESTORATION

Tailoring hardwood floor restoration to address your specific flooring concerns is a personalized approach aimed at identifying the optimal service solution. This may encompass hardwood floor installation, additional features, or expanding your existing wood floors with a meticulous matching of wood type, plank size, and species. For minor damages, repairs are within our scope, while more significant issues such as pet-related stains, deep scratches, water damage, and spot burns may necessitate the replacement of individual planks. Our commitment extends to ensuring a seamless match to the original hardwood flooring in terms of species, dimensions, and even natural wood aging.

Beyond repairs, we offer custom staining services to harmonize with existing floors or meet your design preferences. To facilitate informed decisions, we provide on-site live stain demonstrations and showcase selected or custom stain finishes. This ensures you have a firsthand look at how the new floors will complement and enhance your living space.

FAQ HARDWOOD FLOOR REFINISHING

The FAQs are

  • What Is the Cost of Refinishing Hardwood Floors?
    The most frequently asked question we receive over the phone is, "What is the average cost of refinishing hardwood floors?" The cost of wood floor refinishing is influenced by various factors, including the type of wood flooring (solid or engineered), thickness of the top wear layer, existing finish type (urethane, oil, etc.), new finish type (oil or water-based finish), and additional factors such as groove depth, top nails, and areas requiring wood repairs or replacements. Our base price for hardwood floor refinishing starts at $4 per square foot.
  • Can Hardwood Floors Be Refinished Without Sanding?
    Absolutely! Sandless hardwood floor refinishing, also known as hardwood floor buffing, has become a popular service. It's the sole option for engineered hardwood floors with a top wear layer of 2 mm or less. This method allows you to rejuvenate up to 800 sq. ft of wood floors within a day, a significantly faster alternative to the 4-6 days typically required for traditional hardwood floor refinishing.
  • Can I Change the Color of My Hardwood Floor?
    Certainly! Homeowners can change the colour of their hardwood flooring before refinishing. A diverse range of colours is available, whether you prefer a light, dark, or intermediate hue, regardless of the starting colour.
  • Does Sanding Generate a Lot of Dust?
    While sanding a floor does produce dust, there are effective ways to minimize it. Measures such as using plastic barriers around areas not being worked on and employing a vacuum machine help collect and control the dust.
  • How Long Until I Can Walk on Refinished Floors?
    For new floors, it's advisable to avoid walking in socks for at least 6 hours. After 24 hours, you can confidently walk with your shoes on. However, it's best to wait 48 hours before placing furniture or allowing pets to roam.
  • Is DIY Hardwood Refinishing Recommended?
    DIY hardwood refinishing is a viable idea but requires significant carpeting or labour experience. While some believe it's a cost-saving measure, the reality is that the maximum savings may only amount to 10-20% of the professional service price. Renting professional refinishing tools and purchasing materials like stain, filler, finishes, repair supplies, and sanding paper, combined with the additional time and lack of experience, can often lead to higher costs. Hiring a seasoned local business with over 10 years of experience may offer a more efficient and cost-effective solution, considering their direct access to high-quality supplies from manufacturers.
