Hardwood Floor Refinishing Services
Wood Floor Refinishing (aka Resurfacing): This process is used to revitalize wood floors with severe wear and tear.
- First we sand the wood floors to remove the existing polyurethane or water based finishes.
- We then use 24 grit, 60 grit, & 80 grit paper.
- We buff the floors with 100 grit screen in order to smooth the floors and close the grain.
- Next, we apply 3 coats of oil based polyurethane or 3 coats of water based finish.
- Satin, semi gloss, & high gloss finishes are available.
- We vacuum and buff the floors thoroughly before the application of each polyurethane coat.
- Screen & Recoat: This process is used to revitalize wood floors with minor wear and tear.
- We screen the wood floors in order to take off the top coat of polyurethane or water based finish.
- We then apply one coat of polyurethane to revitalize the hardwood floors.

Woods styles come in strips, planks, or parquet tiles with numerous edge treatments such as square, micro, and beveled edges. You choose from a wide range of stains to complement your décor and from several types of finishes including unfinished and prefinished / preengineered.
Another factor that determines the appearance of wood floors is the angle, or “cut,” of the grain. No matter what the species, construction or finish wood floor comes with one of three cuts: plainsawn, quartersawn or riftsawn.
Plainsawn is the most common cut. A plainsawn board contains a more open and varied grain patterns because the angle of the cut shows the growth rings more prominently. Quartersawn wood is cut at an angle that produces less board feet per log than plainsawn, therefore it can be more expensive. As for appearance, quartersawn wood is tighter-grained for a more consistent look, which many clients find desirable. Another benefit of quartersawn wood is that it tends to twist and cup less and wears more evenly. Riftsawn wood is similar to quartersawn in cost and benefits, but is cut at a different angle for a slightly different grain pattern.
