Hardwood Floor Recoating
We’ve mentioned this on other parts of the site, a lot of the services that we provide go hand in hand. Hardwood floor recoating is a perfect example of this. It’s a bit unlikely that we are going to come in just recoat. We usually sand and then recoat at the very least. Unless you feel that the surface is smooth enough to be able to hold up well as it is. Also, a lot of folks are a bit on the fence over whether or not fine hardwood floors should be recoated. We can help you determine whether or not this procedure is adequate for your flooring.
What Type of Coating Do You Use?
The type of coating that we are going to use is going to depend on your floors and the look that you want to give them. We need to make sure that the new coating that we use whether that be polyurethane, penetrating oils, sealers, or whatever it is that we use has to be able to match the original coating. Otherwise, things can really go south, we would have to sand everything out thoroughly and essentially start over. We end up doing this a lot when folks go the DIY route and fail. A lot of times it’s just easier to call the pros the first time around.
How Often Should I Think About Recoating?
A lot of people are going to let you know that you should be thinking about recoating your floors every 3 to 5 years. While that’s not an inaccurate time frame per se, there are a lot of different things that could make it irrelevant. Naturally, not all floors are going to deteriorate at the same pace. You can put off recoating for much longer if you care for it, and clean your floors regularly and properly.
I Want To Recoat, But I Want To Keep The Same Color On My Floors
This is something that people have brought up to us as a concern. Re-coating does not have to cause your floors to lose its original look. Of course, the final result is highly going to be dedicated by what you use to be able to recoat your floors. We can help you figure out exactly what type of coating we are going to apply. To ensure that we’ll be able to obtain the right results.
Can All Types Of Hardwood Floors Be Recoated?
Some people that invested heavily in fine hardwood floors probably don’t love the idea of potentially ruining them. That’s why we see a lot of these people being very apprehensive about recoating. What we can say is that we’ve dealt with all sorts of quality floors over the years. We know what type of chemicals will fit well with each particular surface. Therefore, you can feel safe that we are not going to be applying or recommending chemicals that we feel can potentially harm your floors.
