Deep scratches or cracks? We can repair and conceal most flooring imperfections And completely remove severe damage.


How much time does hardwood flooring take?

Is it messy and time consuming? The refinishing process includes sanding And scraping the floors down to the natural Wood. Our process keeps mess to a minimum on most projects. We can usually complete the project in minimum time, letting you return to your normal schedule. Three to four hours after the last coat is applied, you can walk in the area with socks And move furniture using felt padding (do not drag furniture across the floors, but lift And place it). However, if you have area rugs, you must wait seven days before you can lay them down again. The floors should be maintained in this manner for the first 36 hours after the last coat of finish is applied.


What is the average life of a refinished hardwood floor?

Longevity of your refinished flooring. While there are a number of factors that affect the actual longevity of your refinished/restored flooring, you can expect it tolook beautiful And smooth for many years. The less wear on your floors, the longer the restoration will last.
