Hardwood floor refinishing is completed for a variety of reasons. With time, the surface of the floor may start to simply wear down, water damage, new color to match updates, repair minor problems that may have developed over the years. Regardless of why you are refinishing the floors, Lakeview Flooring is a leading expert to making your old floors look new again.
What is refinishing?
Hardwood floor refinishing is offered to those who currently have an installed wood floor and have the option to make it look like new again.
Refinishing is the process of removing the faded finish and worn surface layers of the wood before applying a new layer of stain and finish. This process is less expensive than a full installation or replacement as well as prolongs the life of the current flooring already in place. When damage or wear is not significant, refinishing is a great way to make old floors look new again. The best option is a free estimate and walk through before deciding to replace your floors. You may be surprised.
The Process of Making Old Floors Look New Again
Step 1- Free Estimate/ Inspection
The refinishing process begins with a thorough inspection. It’s important for Lakeview Flooring to check the floors and ensure it is a good candidate for refinishing before starting the project. During this inspection, you will receive a full estimate so we can fully discuss all services and products as well as collectively establish all goals of the project.
Step 2- Sanding- Making the old floors look new again!
Each project is different and could vary on timing, however the process is similar. We begin the process with a thorough sanding down to the bare hardwood. Sanding removes the old finish, smoothing over years of wear, the minor dents and scratches while removing the coating off of any areas that had been poorly finished.
Step 3- Sealing and Refinishing
Once we are down to the bare hardwood and all is smooth, we will use a combination of our commercial-grade, Bona Traffic products to seal and finish the floor. All stains/color will be available for your inspection before staining the entire floor.
Dry time may vary depending on weather and the amount of finish the wood soaks up.
