One of the easiest, least expensive ways to refine and update the look of your home is to redo your hardwood. Not only will hardwood floor refinishing improve visual appeal, but the process will also increase long-term value, preserve the wood slats, and add to the overall allure of your house.


At Delair’s Carpet Barn, our East Montpelier, Vermont showroom professionals regularly highlight the advantages of using a wood floor refinishing service to our customers – yet many clients don’t even realize this highly affordable option even exists! As such, we’re going to clarify the process of wood floor refinishing and go over why it may be a good choice for your upcoming renovation.


Should I get a floor refinishing service or a brand-new installation?

If you’ve decided to go with a completely different type of surfacing material or if what you have right now is beyond repair, then certainly, a new installation is best. However, if you’d simply like to update or refine the appearance of your home, then a wood floor refinishing service is an excellent option.


Usually, homeowners choose to redo their planks when:
  • Renovations in other sections of the home have led to mismatched wood.
  • The surface coating is worn down.
  • The grain pattern is fading.
  • Surfacing needs repair.
  • The texture or color of the slats need to be refreshed.
  • The style is no longer trendy.
  • There is significant wear to the topcoat.


A wide variety of refinishing possibilities

As you’ll no doubt notice when you enter our Delair’s Carpet Barn showroom, there is truly a wide variety of refinishing possibilities. Water and oil-based polyurethane is most commonly used when redoing planks. However, stain removal is also an option, depending on the severity of discoloration, if that is indeed the problem. Additionally, you can also choose to add different style elements to your slats, such as wire-brushing, distressing, and embossing.
