Over time, day to day “living” can cause your floors to look dull and worn. You may notice smudges and scratches from the kids playing, or even stains from pet urine. Floors can also become dull in areas where traffic patterns are heavier, or near and under dining tables from the daily movement of chairs. Whatever the reason, you are ready for a change. What do you do?
Both solid and engineered hardwood floors can be sanded and refinished. The process however, may vary with engineered hardwood depending upon the thickness of the wear layer. Engineered wood flooring that has a thinner wear layer is done with a process called screen and recoat, whereby the thin layers are screened and coated to improve the overall appearance, assuming the manufacturer’s finish is an issue. Removing deeper gouges or scratches from engineered hardwood is not always possible; therefore it may need to be replaced.
After sanding, staining and top coat finishes can be completed in a variety of methods from a glossy polyurethane to a soft matt or satin finish.
