Restoring Old Hardwood Flooring: A Guide from Express Hardwood Floors

Old hardwood floors carry character and charm, but over time, they may lose their luster. Fear not! At Express Hardwood Floors, we specialize in restoring vintage wood floors to their former glory. Let’s dive into the steps for reviving your cherished hardwood:

Assess the Condition


Before embarking on restoration, assess your old hardwood floors. Look for scratches, dents, and worn finishes. If the scratches haven’t penetrated deeply, you’re in luck! We can work wonders without sanding down to bare wood.

Dustless Refinishing


Our dustless refinishing process minimizes mess and disruption. We’ll sand the surface using advanced equipment, smoothing out imperfections. Dust containment ensures a cleaner environment during the restoration.

Custom Stains and Finishes


Choose from a variety of finishes:

  • Oil-Based polyurethane: Durable but with an odor. Requires multiple coats and drying time.
  • Water-based polyurethane: Less odor, dries faster, and can be walked on between coats.
  • Oil finish: No VOCs, easy to repair, and requires only one coat.

Site Finished Beauty


Site-finished hardwood allows customization:

  • Select your finish type (water-based, oil-based, or natural oil).
  • Pick your sheen level (high gloss, semi-gloss, or matte).
  • Explore stain colors to match your vision.

Future Refinishing


With site-finished floors, future refinishing is a breeze. Keep your floors looking pristine by recoating every two years or as needed.
