Refinishing services that add beauty and value to your hardwood floors.

With routine maintenance, a wood floor may occasionally need a new coat of finish. Often, deep scratches or worn spots are created due to high levels of foot traffic. This results in the need to have the floor sanded to the bare wood. We are trained professionals that know how to use wood resurfacing techniques to bring those tired hardwood floors back to excellence.

Hardwood floor refinishing begins with sanding down to the bare wood removing scratches, dents, and of course the old stain and finish. Then you pick a stain color. You can even request a special blend of stain just for your hardwood floors. The last step is choosing a finish sheen. Just like paint, there is satin, gloss, or a high-gloss finish to protect your hardwood floors and make them shine.

Signs Your Wood Floor Needs to be Refinished

  • Visible Wear and Tear –  One of the most obvious signs that you may need to refinish your hardwood floor is if it shows visible signs of wear and tear. This may include scratches, scuff marks, and areas where the finish has worn away. Over time, foot traffic and furniture can wear down the finish on a hardwood floor, which can leave it looking dull and faded.
  • Fading or Discoloration – Another sign that it may be time to refinish your hardwood floor is if it has started to fade or become discolored. This can be caused by exposure to sunlight, moisture damage, or simply due to the aging process of the wood. If you notice that your hardwood floor has become significantly lighter or darker in certain areas, this could be a sign that it’s time to refinish.
  • Water Damage – Water damage can be particularly damaging to hardwood floors, as it can cause the wood to warp, swell, or even rot. If you notice any signs of water damage on your hardwood floor, such as cupping or buckling, it’s important to take action right away. Refinishing the floor can help to prevent further damage and restore the beauty of the wood.

Frequently Asked Questions


The frequency of refinishing depends on the condition of the hardwood floor, the amount of foot traffic it receives, and the type of finish used. Typically, hardwood floors should be refinished every 7-10 years.


The time it takes to refinish a hardwood floor depends on the size of the room, the condition of the floor, and the type of finish used. On average, it can take anywhere from 2 to 5 days.


While it is possible to refinish a hardwood floor yourself, we would recommend that you hire a professional to do the job. Refinishing a hardwood floor requires specialized equipment and expertise, and mistakes can be costly.


Sanding a hardwood floor involves removing the old finish and a thin layer of the wood surface with a sanding machine, while screening a floor involves using a mesh screen to lightly abrade the surface to remove minor scratches and prepare it for a new coat of finish. Sanding is more extensive and is typically done when the floor has significant wear and tear.


Yes, changing the color of your hardwood floor is possible during the refinishing process. This is typically achieved by applying a new stain before the final coat of finish is applied. However, it’s important to note that not all types of hardwood can be stained, and some species of wood may not take the stain evenly.
