At Delair's Carpet Barn in East Montpelier, Vermont, we offer a great  wood floor refinishing service, and we suspect that this old, little home that sits on a tiny island in the Winooski River, needs some new flooring work. How did that house get there, and why would anyone build a home in that location? Well, if you have ever seen this old house and wondered about it, someone found the answers. Here is a bit of the story that details this odd home.
“Regular visitors to Wrightsville Reservoir in Montpelier may have spotted a long-abandoned house situated in a most precarious location: on a tiny island in the North Branch of the Winooski River. The small white structure, with its corrugated metal roof and missing windows and doors, sits about a half mile downstream of Wrightsville Dam and hasn't been occupied in decades. Longtime Montpelier residents said they think it's been there at least a half century.”

We doubt that even our professional wood floor refinishing service would be able to restore this old flooring. However, we do know that our services can restore virtually any other hardwood flooring in the area. This story does, however, bring up an interesting issue concerning hardwood flooring, and that issue is damage to wood flooring.

It is not that uncommon for hardwood flooring to become damaged over time. Generally, damage is seen as denting, marring, unsightly scratches, and dulling of the surface. The good news is that we can repair that damage and bring your wood floors back to new life through our professional wood floor refinishing service, and usually for a lot less than you might think.

The type of work needed to restore your flooring will depend upon the type of damage it has sustained. Not all damaged floors will require a full refinishing of every inch of the flooring. We will gladly visit your home and inspect your flooring to determine what needs to be done. Then, we will give you an honest estimate of how much it will cost to complete the repairs, or the refinishing job. We believe that you will be pleased with our low prices.
