Sanding and Refinishing
Floors are sanded with course-medium and fine grit sand paper and finished with a sealer coat + 2 coats of polyurethane (either oil based polyurethane or water based polyurethane).
Oil based finsh has a proven track record. However, the finish ambers with time and requires a lot more drying time and emits a strong vapor that is not only unhealthy but contributes to the depletion of the earth's ozone.
It really depends on the size of the job.
From start to finish, a 1,000 sq.ft.job can be done in 2 - 3 days.
Oil based polyurethane finishes can take up to 10 - 14 hours.
No, even the best quality machines can't collect all of the dust. In order to be dustless, you must utilize a dust containment system. We use a combination of Bona and Oneida Dust Containment System, which is the most advanced and powerful dust containment technology on the market (99% effective).
It depends on the wood species you have on the floor. Some wood looks great natural while others need to be stained to bring out there beauty. Ultimately the decision is yours. Stain is an upgrade and does cost a little more.
We can make up to 3 samples without additional charge. Please, pick 3 colors from your stain chart. You can also go to National Wood Flooring Association to help you design a room. Click on ( Launch Design a Room )

These changes are due to the natural characteristics of wood.
Yes, because wood is a natural product it will react to changes in its environment. The most common causes of separations are Mother Nature and dryness. The loss of moisture results in the most frequent reason for shrinkage of individual pieces and cracks. Most cracks are seasonal - they appear in dry months, or the cold season when heating is required and close during humid periods. This type of behavior is considered normal.
