Types of Damage to Hardwood Floors

Water Damage

Water damage can cause warping, staining, and mold growth on hardwood floors. Whether it’s from spills, leaks, or flooding, water damage requires immediate attention to prevent further deterioration.


Wear and Tear

Over time, hardwood floors can show signs of wear and tear, such as scratches, scuffs, and dullness. High traffic areas are particularly susceptible to this type of damage, which can make floors look worn out and aged.

Accidental Damage

Accidents happen, and heavy objects can be dropped on hardwood floors, causing dents, cracks, or gouges. This type of damage can be unsightly and may affect the structural integrity of the flooring.

Our Custom Staining Process

We provide a custom staining process where different stain variations are applied directly to your floor. You can choose the exact shade you want, and we’ll mix and apply the stain to achieve your desired look. We use water-based stains instead of oil-based ones. This allows you to start walking on your floors within a few hours, compared to days with oil-based stains. Additionally, we can provide a same-day quote and start your project as soon as tomorrow.

Why Not Just Replace Damaged Planks?

Replacing individual damaged planks is not a practical solution for several reasons. Identifying the exact brand, color, and manufacturer of a specific floorboard can be virtually impossible, especially if the floor is older than five years. Even if you can order replacement materials, there’s a good chance that the stain and composition won’t match exactly due to inconsistencies in manufacturing over time.

During the refinishing process, we can fix and replace any damaged hardwood planks using unfinished wood specific to the species of your floor. This ensures a seamless and uniform appearance.

The Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process

  1. Assessment and Quote: We start by assessing the extent of the damage and identifying any planks that need replacement. We provide a same-day quote to get the process moving quickly.

  2. Replacement: We replace damaged planks with unfinished wood that matches the species of your existing floor.

  3. Sanding: We sand the entire floor to remove the finish coat and stain, bringing it down to the original wood.

  4. Custom Staining: We apply different variations of stains and colors directly on the floor. You select your preferred shade, and we mix the stain to match your choice.

  5. Finishing: We apply the water-based stain, allowing it to dry quickly so you can walk on your floors within a few hours.

  6. Next-Day Start:  Our process is so efficient that once we provide you a quote, we can start as soon as the next day.

The Benefits of Hardwood Floor Refinishing

Refinishing your hardwood floors restores their beauty, with the added benefit of a color or stain that perfectly matches your style. It is often more cost-effective than replacing the entire floor. Our refinishing process extends the life of your hardwood floors, making them look and perform like new for years to come. With our efficient process, you can get a same-day quote, and we can start the project as soon as the next day.
