What is hardwood refinishing?
Hardwood floor refinishing is the process of removing all layers of finish from an older site finished floor or a newer pre-finished floor. The sanding process we use to get your floor stripped back down to its beautiful, natural state is going to be different for every project.
After the fine sanding process is done, we can either apply a clear coat or a customized stain to your floor. A clear coat will give it a natural look where a customized stain will change the look and feel of your floor.
The refinishing process
Upon our arrival to your home, we will go over all the details of the refinishing process with you. This will include going over the sanding process, stain options, and topcoat finish choices.
Choosing your colour and finish
We believe in giving you the floor of your dreams! We will walk you through a customized process of choosing a natural finish or a stain. After we have stripped your floor back to its natural state, we will apply customized samples on your floor so that you can choose what color best matches the look and feel you desire for your unique space.
After the fine sanding process has been completed, we will begin to apply either the stain or a sealer coat
Once the stain/sealer coat has dried, the first topcoat of the desired sheen level will be applied.
To ensure a nice, smooth surface we buff the floor with a very fine grit of sandpaper in preparation of the final coat of finish. This is also where we clean up any excess dust and ensure your home is looking clean and ready for you to live in.
Apply final coat and allow it to dry. We have fans that help expedite this process so that we can get you back living in your house as soon as possible.
