Refinishing is specifically the process in which the hardwood floors are taken down to the raw wood by removing the old stain and finish so that the wood can then be reapplied with new stain and a fresh finish.
If you are looking to improve the appearance of your home while preserving its value at the same time, then refinishing your hardwood floors could be one of the best and easiest ways to do so. Some of the most common reasons for customers to decide that they would like to refinish their hardwood flooring is because the flooring has deep scratches from being old and worn, the hardwoods need a color change or the homeowner would like to create a new look for the home by refinishing the hardwood floors that were underneath the recently removed carpet or linoleum.
Tip to know when your hardwood floors need refinishing: Take a tablespoon of water and pour it onto the floor in a high-traffic area of your home where the flooring finish seems to be the most worn. If the water beads up and you can wipe it away then the finish is still safeguarding your flooring; however, if the wood soaks up the water, it is time to give us a call and receive a free estimate on refinishing your hardwood flooring.
