Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process
Refinishing your hardwood floor requires a few steps. First, we sand off the top layer of old finish, wax, dirt using a heavy grit sandpaper until all the wear marks and scratches are gone and we see fresh wood again. The sanding process is done with a heavy duty professional grade drum sander. This machine requires an experienced operator or else you risk damage to your floor. Different grades of sandpaper are used, gradually getting to a fine grit. A 2nd machine is also used for screening hardwood floors. This machine looks like a floor buffer you may have seen used in your local supermarket. A fine grit screen is used old wood floor is smooth as silk.
After your wood floor is sanded to perfection, we will then apply the stain / sealer of your choice. There are dozens of wood stain colors to choose from. We can even refinish your wood floor to have a bleached, white-washed look.
Once your floor is bleached or stained, we then apply at least 3 coats of a high quality polyurethane finish. The finish can either be water-based with low to no VOC (won’t smell while drying) or some prefer an old school oil-based finish. But with today’s technology, the water-based polyurethane products are just as hard and tough as the old oil-based floor finishes, so that is what we recommend.
It takes only a day or two to refinish wood floors. However the effort is worth is as your old wood floors will look like new again and stay that way for many years to come. What will it cost to refinish your wood floor? Click here to schedule a FREE ESTIMATE or call: (516) 322-8630
