Hardwood refinishing: rejuvenate your floors

Welcome to our comprehensive guide on hardwood refinishing, brought to you by Thompson Flooring Installers and Consultants. Our flooring store's expertise and dedication to quality have helped countless people transform their spaces with beautifully refinished hardwood floors. In this guide, we'll explore the benefits of hardwood floor refinishing and detail our unique process that ensures your floors look their best.

Benefits of wood floor refinishing

  • Enhance floor appearance: One of the most immediate benefits of hardwood floor refinishing is the dramatic improvement in the appearance of your floors. Refinishing removes years of wear and tear, revealing the natural beauty and grain of the wood. This process can also address discoloration and fading, restoring the original luster and color of your hardwood.
  • Increase home value: Refinished hardwood floors can significantly increase the value of your home. They are a highly sought-after feature for potential buyers, offering a timeless and elegant look that appeals to a wide audience. This investment in your home's aesthetics can pay off substantially in the long run.
  • Extend floor lifespan: Hardwood floors are a long-term investment, and refinishing them can extend their lifespan by several years. By sanding down the surface and applying a fresh protective coating, you protect the wood from future damage and wear, ensuring your floors remain beautiful and functional for years.
  • Improve indoor air quality: Unlike carpets that trap dust, allergens, and other particles, hardwood floors offer a healthier living environment. Wood floor refinishing removes these trapped particles and seals the surface, contributing to better indoor air quality in your home.

Our hardwood refinishing process


Step 1: Initial consultation

 Our hardwood floor refinishing process starts with a free consultation where our experienced crew assesses the condition of your floors and discusses your desired outcome. We take the time to understand your needs and preferences, ensuring a result that meets your expectations.

Step 2: Preparing the space

 Before starting the refinishing process, we prepare the area to minimize dust and disruption. This includes moving furniture, covering vents, and setting up dust containment systems.

Step 3: Sanding floors

Sanding is an essential step in hardwood refinishing. We use professional-grade equipment to sand your floors evenly, removing the old finish and smoothing out imperfections. Our team works meticulously to ensure a flawless base for the new finish.

Step 4: Staining (optional)

 If you choose to change the color of your hardwood, we offer a wide range of stain options. Our experts will help you select a shade that complements your home's décor and apply it evenly for a consistent look.

Step 5: Applying finish

 The final step is applying a high-quality finish that protects your floors and enhances their beauty. We offer various finish options, including matte, satin, and gloss, to match your style preference.

Step 6: Final inspection

 After the wood floor refinishing process, we conduct a thorough inspection to ensure every detail meets our high standards. We then provide care instructions to help you maintain your newly refinished floors.
