Flooring Restoration

Flooring Restoration

After 20 years, hardwood floors begin showing their age; worn urethane, scratches, dullness and discoloration are the most common signs that the wood is due for refinishing.

Fortunately, the typical ¾-inch-thick hardwood floor can be sanded about six to eight times during its lifetime. So unless you live in a particularly old house, or a previous resident was an especially aggressive refinisher, chances are good that your wood floors can be restored to a beautiful condition.

Industrial Loft Restoration

Restoring a century home or repurposing an industrial loft, into a new home or office, can be a very satisfying experience.

If these floors have been ignored or abused they can be brought back with startling results.

Frequently the original materials used to create these buildings are not available anymore and you as the steward of these assets are breathing life back into them.

Worn and Abused Hardwood Floor

Worn and Abused Hardwood (Floor Damage)

If you live in a particularly old house, an industrial loft or a previous resident was an especially aggressive refinisher or had many pets, chances are good that your wood floors have suffered damage from the experience.

Depending on the nature of the damage, contamination, wear or just general condition, different remedies can be proposed and the floors could be brought back to a beautiful condition. In some cases the floor has deteriorated beyond restoration and complete or partial replacement may be necessary.

Staining Hardwood


Staining hardwood, a coating technique, brings out the wood's character by emphasizing its grains and markings.

Staining enriches the finish by adding contrast and leaving the wood looking natural and darkening the grains.

Staining can also be used to make one species of wood look like another.



Treads, risers, stringers, railings and spindles accumulate dirt and oils from constant use and the finish begin to look worn or faded after time and use.

These components of the stairway can be restored or repaired back to new condition.

Wall Moved

When a home or business space is being renovated or restored walls are frequently moved.

When existing floors are hardwood it is not very difficult to accommodate the new room configurations and wall arrangements.

Providing matching flooring material can be obtained it can be laced or staggered in with the original flooring and sanded, stained and finished.

There is usually very little discernible difference.
