The Hardwood Refinishing Process

Refinishing a hardwood floor is the process of buffing or sanding the surface of the old floor and then reapplying a clear, protective finish over the wood. The finish can come in a variety of looks, ranging from glossy to matte. For wood floors where the old finish has simply worn down, we recommend a screening or buffing. Here, we will remove any existing finish and apply a new, fresh finish. This will seal your old floor while giving it a beautiful, new shine.

For wood floors that have incurred scratches or dents, a different process may be required. In situations like this, we would sand the floor to remove the damage and reveal a fresh, even surface. After applying a new finish, your floor will look as good as new!

Refinishing your hardwood floors will make them look new again and allows for surface damage to be removed. This is especially helpful if you’ll be putting your home on the market. Refinishing your floors is less expensive than replacing them, and having beautiful looking hardwoods will help to increase your home’s resale value.

The benefits of hardwood refinishing go beyond aesthetics, however. The finish on a hardwood floor serves to seal and protect the wood from surface scratches and water damage. Keep your finish up to date to prevent permanent damage from spills and shoes.
