Once you have your beautiful hardwood flooring installed, you are undoubtedly thinking of all the parties you will be hosting, the click of your puppy’s paws, and how excited you are about your investment. Years later, when your hardwood is starting to show signs of wear and tear, you might be wondering whether or not it’s time to refinish. Here are some ways to decide if refinishing may be right for your hardwood floor and why you should choose the experts at JKE Hardwood Flooring for the job.
You may have been putting off refinishing for years, but there are many reasons to try to tackle the problem today, instead of continuing to put off the problem (as it gets bigger!). Refinishing helps restore old floors so that they look almost new, which will, in turn, improve the appearance of your home and increase property and resale values. Not worried about selling anytime soon? Refinishing helps to reduce the costs of maintaining your floor and it will help prevent the cost of replacement. Beyond aesthetics and costs, you also dramatically decrease the odds of the hardwood splintering and getting stuck in your foot.
Why Not DIY?
While do it yourself projects are excellent for those handy with wood or tools, some projects are a little too big and advanced for the average DIY-er. Hardwood floor refinishing requires a lot of specialized experience, machinery, and workers, so it isn’t possible for most people to tackle the job on their own. Refinishing is done as a long, multi-step process. If the steps aren’t properly completed in the right order, with the proper amounts of time between steps, you could have to redo the job again and shell out more money for a professional to come in.
The Power of a Professional
Professionals are equipped with the tools, staff, and skills to refinish your hardwood floor. Beyond those skills, they can pick the right stain for the job. The ideal stain will mesh properly with your specific type of hardwood flooring, be customized to meet the needs of your hardwood floor in terms of wear and tear, and be right for the average humidity and temperature inside and outside of your house. Any missteps along the way can cost you a lot of time and money.
