Hardwood Floor Refinishing Rather Than Replacement?
When your once beautiful hardwood floors starting to show signs of wear, there are several options to restore their former glory.
- If you are just tired of the color of your wood floor, a new stain might help you fall in love with them again!
- Or perhaps you’ve recently discovered you already have beautiful hardwood floors under that ugly and/or worn-out carpet? Refinishing those hardwoods will instantly add value to your home!
- No matter what your situation, refinishing that worn out floor is an inexpensive and highly-effective way of breathing new life into your home.
- Waxing and/or buffing your hardwoods may do the trick but sanding and refinishing the wood is usually what’s needed to restore the original richness and beauty of the wood.
Our team of skilled flooring technicians at MASTERS FLOORS Hardwood Flooring can extend the life of your existing floor with expert floor refinishing services.
When is refinishing your best option?
If scratches or dings are in the hardwood, sanding and refinishing can restore their beauty.
Make sure your boards are thick enough to be refinished – at least 1/4″ or wood above the tongue & groove needs to be available. Check at floor edges or around a heat register to see how much wood remains.
Keep in mind that a hardwood floor can only be sanded and refinished so many times because each sanding takes off more hardwood.
There may be gaps in the hardwood that need filling and other repairs to be made before starting to sand and refinish. If the wood floor feels spongy, if it sags, or if boards are cupping, buckling or warped, then they probably need to be replaced.
When MASTERS FLOORS Hardwood Flooring is finished, your hardwood floors will look and feel new again.
