Hardwood refinishing is the problem solver

Flooring Source begins the hardwood refinishing by sanding away any remaining the finish along with a small amount of the hardwood from your floors. Very little of the wood is removed, but it makes a significant difference since doing so removes almost every surface imperfection. This also ensures that the floor will be level in areas where it has become in the least warped or buckled.

Removing any existing imperfections is only the first step in the process. Once that has been done, we add a new layer of polyurethane coating to replace the coating that has been removed. This new layer will protect the wood in the future. As soon as the new surface coating has dried, your floor will look as good as new and be as strong as it was originally.

Refinishing your floors quickly once they begin to show wear will extend their lifespan and durability once more. Proper maintenance of any hardwood flooring should include regular hardwood refinishing by professionals that have the needed expertise. Properly maintained and cared for hardwood flooring can last for hundreds of years.
