Hard and soft wood floor refinishing services include “deep” sanding (exposing new layers of wood) and “light” sanding techniques that allow us to quickly recoat an existing floor.
Deep Sand and Refinish:
When a floor has too much damage, discoloration, and deep scratches we perform a complete sand and refinish, sanding the wood down to a bare unfinished state and exposing new layers. At this point, colors and sheens can be customized as well.
Light Sand and Refinish or “Buff and Recoat”:
Buffing and Recoating your hardwood floors (or screen & recoat) is part of a regular maintenance that will revitalize your floors while saving you money in the long run.
This process uses a buffer machine that lightly abrades the top layer of polyurethane, then a new protective finish coat is applied, making your floors look virtually new again.
The general rule of thumb is, if you do a buff and coat about every 3 years (or more frequently for floors with hard use and heavy traffic) you can avoid a full sanding for a long time.
