Bad things happen to wood floors. Sometimes it’s water damage. An appliance may leak or a toilet may overflow (while you’re on vacation). Sometimes it’s fire damage. Floors get beaten up and mistreated for a variety of reasons. If you have a wood floor that’s seen better days, call The Flooring Department. We can bring that old, worn, tired wood floor back to life with our hardwood restoration and repair techniques. Beginning with a careful on-site inspection, our trained professionals will provide a thorough assessment of your flooring options so you can make an educated decision in regards to your needs and budget. Even if you think replacing the floor is your only option, let us take a look. Many times our wood floor experts can preserve part of the floor and repair the damaged area saving you money.
Wood floor restoration and repair takes skill. That’s just what our team of professionals can deliver. Many times a damaged wood floor can be saved without having to replace the entire space. We can replace only the damaged area by “lacing in” new wood planks for a seamless look. Then, we can sand and refinish the entire area for a flawless finish. The restoration process typically begins with room preparation followed by dustless sanding-no harsh, toxic chemicals are used. Our process is environmentally friendly and clean. Once the raw wood is exposed, any necessary repairs can be made, such as filling old nail holes, repairing cracks, replacement of damaged planks, etc., before staining and refinishing so your hardwood floor looks like new.
The staining and refinishing stage is the most exciting. This is when you see your wood floor really come to life. We start by applying a water-based stain. After the stain is dry, we finish the floor with several applications of an environmentally safe, durable and fast-drying top coat. Additionally, we screen, buff and vacuum between refinishing coats for the absolute best results possible. With proper care, the finish will last for years to come.
