We take care of everything from the prep, to the finishing touches, you can be sure that you are in good hands when you call Metairie Wood Floor Experts to assist you in completing any sanding or refinishing project. When you have moved into a new home and want to make the existing wood floors look brand new, our sanding and refinishing service is right for you.
We do all the preparation for your wood floor refinishing project, so you don’t have to lift a finger. If your room has molding or a base shoe at the bottom of the baseboards, we will pry it off to reinstall it after the flooring job is completed. The reason for this is that when we sand your flooring, the height will go down a little bit. Also, the sanding process could scuff up the base shoe. By removing and then reinstalling it, we ensure that the finish on your base show is maintained and that the floor meets the wall properly in the end result. If the shoe is well bonded, however, we will leave it in place and touch it up later to avoid worse damage occurring through the removal process. Without a base shoe, damage will occur to the baseboards, but we will take the initiative to touch it up after the fact so that you can enjoy the beauty of your new flooring.
When water damage occurs to a wood floor, a sander can usually take care of the problem for good. Pet stains are a whole different animal. These stains penetrate the wood more deeply than water and may not sand out. The best solution that we have for removing pet stains that does not involve the use of chemicals that may or may not work is to use a finish that works to hide the stain as much as possible. When pet stains are really in the wood deep, it can sometimes be the best choice to replace the wood.
When we have finished sanding, we will then go through a process called screening. This helped to blend the edges of the perimeter and polishes away any scratches.
Sometimes, sanding is not always needed, and you will simply need to recoat the floor in order to refinish it. Refinishing takes a lot less time to execute and can make you floors look just as good if sanding is not necessary. Our experts can help you determine what the best course of action will be.
