It's that time of year again! If the weather isn't a big enough clue, we can always tell when the summer remodeling season is here, because our customers suddenly come alive with questions, especially about our wood floor refinishing services.


Well, if you've got questions, Delair's Carpet Barn has answers! Here is everything you need to know about our floor refinishing service!


Can a Wood Floor Refinishing Service Restore My Engineered Hardwood Flooring?


This is one of those questions that depends upon a number of factors. Roughly 75% of engineered hardwood floors are eligible for refinishing. However, if your engineered hardwood floors have already been refinished a few times, you might need to consider a complete overhaul of your floors.


The problem comes from the thickness of your engineered hardwood's veneer. Depending upon the thickness of the veneer, you can sand and refinish them a few times over the course of their service life, but each time they are sanded, the veneer grows thinner until, eventually, they can no longer be sanded without damage.


Can I Refinish My Floors As a DIY Project?


We get this question a lot. We get it, you want to achieve your remodeling goals on a budget. However, this is one area where you definitely want professional help.


Hardwood floor refinishing is not as easy as it looks. It involves large, dangerous machines to pull off. In addition to physical harm to yourself, there is a very real chance that you could lose control of the machine, or apply uneven pressure while working that can cause some serious damage to your floors and possibly necessitate the total replacement of your floors.


Can I Change the Color of My Wood Floors?


Yes! During your refinishing job is exactly the time to choose a new color for your floors. In fact, this is one of the most common reasons people choose to refinish their floors!
