Hardwood refinishing and restoration


Learn more about hardwood restoration and refinishing

Hardwood flooring adds beauty, durability, and value to any home. If you have hardwood floors, it's a safe bet that you're going to, at some point, require a hardwood floor refinishing. Sanding and finishing hardwood floors will remove decades of wear and abuse to reveal a brand-new layer of natural wood floor that can be stained, resealed, and finish coated for a like-new appearance. In most cases, solid hardwood flooring can be refinished as many as 5-6 times, resulting in a floor that can last over 100 years!

The processes to restore or refinish a hardwood floor are very similar, but not the same thing. Understanding the differences can give you peace of mind about whichever one you need to be carried out. Our hardwood industry training and experience give us a unique perspective on the best option to fit your lifestyle and budget.

Refinishing vs. Restoration — Isn't it the same?

You might be wondering what the difference is between a hardwood refinish, aka sand and finish, and hardwood floor restoration. Refinishing is a process that can be repeated several times throughout your flooring's lifespan. Years of wear are sanded away to potentially reveal a floor that looks new again. This process allows you to change the color of a floor with stain, choose a new natural-color hardwood sealant, and select a hardwood finish type that matches your current need.

Restoration is most often carried out in historic homes, or homes that have been subjected to damage or abuse for an extended time. In hardwood restoration, board repairs are made, necessary or helpful additions are added, and care is taken to maintain the integrity of as much of the original flooring materials as is possible. The result is a beautiful, finished hardwood floor that looks much like it would have in its original state.

The short answer: maybe. MOST pre-finished hardwood can at least have a screen and recoat (limitations apply), or a refresher coat applied, but not all prefinished hardwood floors can be sanded and refinished. There a few different finish types used on prefinished floors, aka factory finished floors. It's best to determine your options with a site visit from one of our experts.
