Hardwood Flooring lancaster
Hardwood floors make homes look wonderfully elegant; however, they can get scratched and dull as hardwood flooring ages. The only way to avoid this crisis is to do refinishing. Hardwood flooring can take 10 to 12 complete sanding and refinishing jobs during its lifetime. On the other hand, engineered wood flooring can be refinished once or twice, depending on the thickness of the hardwood veneer. It is tempting to refinish yourself since you will save a lot of money by doing so, but mistakes can under your work big time and will cost you more than you thought you saved.
Have professionals like Hardwood Flooring Lancaster do the deed for you. With our years of experience in the field, working on your hardwood floor would be easy peasy!
WHAT WE CAN DO AND WHAT TO EXPECT
When our team refinishes your hardwood floors, we advise our clients to vacate the place since the refinishing job would be dusty and noisy. We give this advice in advance to ensure that they can prepare a place to stay before the refinishing job starts. Although our team does not usually make a huge mess when refinishing hardwood floors, we still do this as a precaution and ensure that our clients are comfortable while we do the work.
Our team will do buffing if the floor has minimal scratches and signs of wear on the surface. In this situation, surface damage does not indicate damage to the wood underneath it. It would be easy for the team to clean the surface of the oil and other dirt to avoid blotching, then buff the topcoat and refinish with a water-based or polyurethane floor finish. As for floors that sustain massive damage due to age, sanding and refinishing would be the only way to restore them. This method also gives us a chance to change the color of the hardwood floor, especially if it is badly stained. After sanding down to bare wood, we fill cracks with color-matched wood filler, then apply the stain, allowing it to dry thoroughly before applying two to three coats of finish.
All this work would depend on the size of the floor area. If the floor is vast and immense, it will take some time to refinish versus smaller floor areas. The flow of the schedule and the work to be done would be given to the client for transparency. Despite the work being done by us, we make sure to involve the client to get them in the know. We also make sure that they are given great advice on maintaining their hardwood floors and prolonging their lives.
