Portland Hardwood Floor Refinishing

Hardwood Floor Refinishing

Refinishing hardwood floors is a great investment. Time and traffic take their toll on hardwood floors in the form of scratches, scrapes, dents, worn areas and water stains or buckling. One of the great things about wood flooring is that you can refinish them. This can be done several times over the course of their lifespan. You can also choose to update the style of your hardwood floors in the form of a new color, design or texture. If you’re selling your home, this is also a good investment, as freshly refinished flooring immediately impacts potential buyers. Here are some things to consider:

Aesthetic Goals

If your primary objective is to revitalize your floors and restore their former luster, you should probably refinish them. This is especially true if they just have minor issues as mentioned above. But if you’re looking for a complete change in the way your floor looks, i.e., the width or grain of the wood, or the direction of the planks, you may want to consider replacing them.

Length of Time to Refinish

Refinishing your wood flooring is almost always quicker than replacing them. Depending on the area we’re refinishing, the homeowner can usually stay in the residence until finish coats are applied. We typically recommend that your family move out of the house during this process, due to the dust, odor and general disruption.

Current Shape of Hardwood Floors

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to restore every hardwood floor through refinishing. If the wood floor is too thin from repeated sanding, has puckering or warping issues, or if a good deal of the wood has become extensively damaged, you will want to replace the whole floor.

Should I Refinish the Floors Myself?

While doing this type of project yourself is not impossible, in the hands of the novice, you could do more damage than good. If you’ve ever looked up “How to Refinish Hardwood Floors” on the internet, you may have read of disasters when trying to do this type of work yourself.

Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process

First, the fun part- you get to choose the color and finish that you want. Just like if you’re installing new hardwood floors, you’ll want to take into consideration the size of the room, the wall color and texture, and what other hardwoods you have in the house. Visit our showroom and pick out some samples to take home with you. See how they look under different lights and next to cabinetry and furniture. As for the finish, we offer a variety of finishes including Swedish finish, Water-based floor finish, Oil-based finish, penetrating oils, and others.

When you’re ready, we’ll come to your home and examine the floor’s condition. If any mitigation issues are needed (such as dehumidifying due to water damage,) we’ll recommend those at this time. We’ll measure the rooms with the hardwood flooring and provide you with a detailed estimate.Before we begin work, you’ll want to remove all of the furniture, paintings, drapes, pets, and other furnishings from the room.

Cost to Refinish Hardwood Floors

It’s almost always less expensive to refinish your hardwood floor than to replace it. When replacing, you must consider the cost of the new wood as well as the installation.
