The wood floor refinishing process begins by stripping off the wood layer that contains all the damage taken on over years of everyday wear and tear. From dents and dings, to water spots and stains, they will all disappear in just a short time.
Once the old layer has been removed, the underlying wood will be prepped and ready to receive its new look. Many homeowners opt to stick with the stain color and finish they’ve grown accustomed to. Others may want something different to go with new decor, so they get a brand new stain color, as well as a new finish.
Stain colors vary greatly, ranging from a simple clear coat, to the darkest of dark. Finishes can include the custom glossy style, vintage, distressed, hand scraped and more. The great thing about the vintage and hand scraped finishes, is that they allow you to mask some of the wear and tear your floor might take on over time. This means you’ll be able to go longer between refinishings, as small scuffs and scratches will not be nearly as visible.
The result is a gorgeous floor you’ll enjoy for a few more decades, before wood floor refinishing is once again necessary.
