What is refinishing?
If you have never refinished your floors, you may be wondering what the process is. There are three main steps in hardwood refinishing: sanding, staining, and finishing.
Sanding: The first part of any refinishing work is getting the floors back down to just the hardwood. You may not realize that what you see as the surface of your floors is really layers of staining and finishing. This is what becomes dull and scratched over time. Our experts will carefully buff away the layers of finish. Note that if your floor has any deep damages like holes or rotting wood, this will have to be addressed before sanding.
Staining: Staining is what gives your hardwood floors that beautiful glow and shine that you love. Stains come in a variety of colors and shades. The key is to find one that brings out the natural beauty of whatever hardwood species you chose for the floors. Staining is done with a paint rag and a lot of patience. Luckily for you, our experts have plenty of experience and can get the job finished with ease.
Finishing: This is the final step in restoring your hardwood floors. Once the floor has been sanded to an even level and stained the way that you want, a finish is applied. The finish is a clear epoxy layer that protects the flooring underneath. This is the part of the floor that comes in contact with feet, furniture, and whatever other wear factors there are in the home. It is important to use the correct finish to prevent damaging the hardwood underneath.
