Over time solid hardwood and engineered wood finishes will dull, fade, and get scratches or dents. The two main ways to fix or freshen up your floors are to sand and refinish them or screen and recoat them. Bergens Hardwood Flooring can help you with the best option for your floor.
Bergens Hardwood Flooring can bring new life back to your old wood floors with a sand and refinish. In this process, all furniture is completely removed from the area being refinished. Areas are plastic and taped off to contain any debris not collected from the vacuum. Any bad boards will be replaced at this point. The entire wood flooring will be sanded down to bare wood. After the sanding stage, the floor will be sealed with a stain color of your choice. The final steps are to apply 3 coats of finish with the sheen of your choice. Satin, semi-gloss or gloss.
Some of the reasons to sand and refinish your wood floors are:
- If the finish has worn down to bare wood.
- If you have dents and scratches that penetrate through the finish
- If you are adding to your original wood floors.
