Benefits of refinishing hardwood floors
Older, dull, scratched and dented hardwood floors don’t necessarily need to be replaced. Professional hardwood floor refinishing companies in Charlotte like Fabricio Hardwood Floors can transform your existing floors and make them look great again. Below are several benefits of hardwood floor refinishing you should consider before making your decision to go new or restore.
Cost of refinishing wood flooring
Shorter time to completion
Wether you are having wood floors installed or refinished, the process of getting the work done will cause some disruptions to your daily life at home for some time. With hardwood floor refinishing, the process, from start to finish, will take a lot less time than if you decide to install new wood flooring. With a new installation, there are numerous steps involved such as selecting the type of wood flooring you want (wood specie, board size, finished or unfinished boards). You will need to order the flooring in quantities sufficient to complete your project. If it’s in stock, great. If it’s backordered, it will delay the installation process. The wood planks will need to be delivered to your home at least 3 days prior to the start of installation so the planks have sufficient time to acclimate to your home temperature and humidity level. Your old floors will need to be ripped out and disposed of, and the subfloor will need to be repaired and prepped as needed for the new flooring installation. The new planks will then need to be installed and cut to size as needed. If you chose unfinished wood floors, they will need to be sanded after installation. The final steps which involve sanding, staining and finishing are more or less the same between installing new wood floors and refinishing existing floors.

Transform the look of your floors
Refinishing your hardwood floors will remove scratches, surface stains and dents. It will also give you the opportunity to change the stain color of your flooring which has the potential to literally transform the look of your living spaces. Going with a lighter color stain will brighten your rooms and modernize them. The options are endless when it comes to refinishing your existing hardwood floors. That is one of the main advantages of hardwood floors – they can be sanded and stained a different color multiple times throughout their life span.

Did you know that it takes over 20 trees to mill enough wood planks to cover flooring in a 2,400 square feet home? If maintained properly, hardwood floors can last 100 years or more. Compared to other types of flooring like LVP, tile and engineered wood, solid hardwood floors can be refinished several times over their lifespan. As the style of your home changes over the years, you can change the stain color of your wood floors by having them refinished to match the new style you are going for. Leveraging the lifespan of your existing wood floors is the environmentally responsible thing to do to avoid the harvest of new trees to create flooring. Whenever you have the option, we recommend that you consider refinishing over installing new wood floors.
