Hardwood Refinishing and Restoration Options
Whether your floor needs a fresh touch up or a complete repair, hardwood refinishing is necessary for most hardwood floors from time to time. Even in the best conditions, hardwood wears over time and begins to look scuffed and dinged. In the lifetime of your floor, it could need up to three common hardwood refinishing.
Sometimes the problem is worse than a little bit of wear and tear, and when that’s the case, refinishing isn’t enough. Hardwood restoration does what it sounds like it should: it restores the quality and beauty of your floor. Affordable Custom Floors can provide the refinishing or restoration your hardwood floor needs.
Standard hardwood refinishing
For 80% of hardwood floor owners, the standard refinishing will be enough to restore the beauty of older hardwood floors. While some companies offer to refurbish and restore shine in less than a day, keep in mind that their process is not a full refinish and will not last as long. A good hardwood refinishing happens in three steps:
- Sanding removes the older, worn layer of wood from the top, revealing newer, undamaged wood below
- Staining is an optional but great step that will make the color of the floor pop as if it were brand new
- Refinishing adds a layer of polyurethane to seal in the new, refreshed floor and add the shine you look forward to
When your floor begins to look worn and older, Affordable Custom Floors can get you the hardwood refinishing that will make your floor look like new.
