Sanding and Refinishing

Bring back life to your floors

Having your hardwood floors refinished is one of the easiest ways to drastically improve the look of your home. There isn’t an easier way to not only improve the beauty of your home but also preserve its value.

Here are a few of the most common reasons why customers decide to have their floors refinished:

  • Floors are completely worn and have deep scratches
  • Decided to remove carpet or linoleum and refinish the hardwood floors underneath
  • Want to change the color of the hardwood floors

Sanding and refinishing the floors means that we sand all of the finish off of the existing floor and remove approximately 1/32″ of wood. Floors are coated with sealer and three coats of polyurehtane. Most 3/4″ hardwood floors can be sanded 6 times as long as a professional company sands the floor each time needed. Hardwood floors should last 100-150 years, making hardwood floors the longest lasting value for the home that can be purchased if cared for by a professional team.

Installation

Get that floor that you love

We are experienced installers that have successfully installed hardwood over concrete and/or plywood. We have worked with virtually all types of hardwood products – both solid and engineered planks as well as wide planks. We also specialize in installing borders.

Installations can be completed within a couple of days and we do our best to keep disruptions to a minimum. There are four primary methods to installing hardwood floors:

  • Nail Down: In this method, wood strips are installed using a nailer and a mallet.
  • Glue Down: Glue is used for parquets and engineered flooring. An adhesive is used to fix the hardwood floors onto the subfloor. Your professional installer will use the proper adhesive for your type of floors.
  • Staple Down: A specific staple gun will be used to attach wood floor to subfloor using 1-1/2 to 2 inch staples. There are different pneumatic guns for different floors, therefore, be sure to hire a professional floor installer that will use equipment accordingly.
  • Floating: Using this method, hardwood floors are not fastened to any part of the subfloors. A pad is placed between subfloor and wood floors. A glue is applied to hold each peice together.

Screen & Coat / Staining

Change is always good, also protecting what you care

The process of screen and coat (or buff and coat) is quite different from sanding and refinishing. Refinishing is the process where all finish is removed and floor is sanded to reveal a new layer of raw wood.

A screen and coat however is a one day process where wood floors are lightly buffed and a fresh layer of finish applied. Screen and coat is more cost effective than sanding and refinishing. A screen and coat will not remove deep scratches, stains, or dents. It is usually recommended for dull floors that are in good shape. Screen and coats should be done as maintenance every couple of years to floors that have been recently sanded.
