Hardwood Floor Refinishing

Since 2006, homeowners and business owners alike have trusted Tri Point Flooring for quality hardwood floor services, such as hardwood floor refinishing, installation and also buffing and restoring wooden flooring. If your hardwood flooring is damaged or super worn down and looks bad, consider hardwood floor refinishing. This extreme restoration service will give your wooden flooring a like new appearance. Refinishing offers the opportunity to completely change the color of wood flooring as well as the top sheen.

Most solid hardwood floors can endure being sanded and refinished up to eight times before requiring replacement. And most engineered hardwood floors can be sanded down and refinished between one to four times over their lifespan. Hardwood refinishing is a cost effective alternative to completely replacing wooden flooring.

When to Get Hardwood Floor Refinishing?

Many of our customers wonder, “When is the right time for hardwood floor refinishing service?” There are multiple tell-tale signs that you need floor refinishing. These signs include:
  • More than 20 years since last sanding
  • Visible nicks and scratches that penetrate beyond the topcoat
  • Polishing does not improve the finish
  • Uneven coloring
  • Moisture damage
  • Existing finish is worn down to the wood
If wood flooring has not already passed the point of no return, a faster and much more cost effective method may revive floor finishes that are lightly scuffed or dull. A buff and re-coat service may restore the beauty and sheen to a dingy wood floor. If in doubt, consult an experienced professional hardwood flooring expert.

It is important to note that with regular preventative maintenance and upkeep, hardwood flooring may never require refinishing. Hardwood flooring benefits hugely if it receives a buff and re-coat service every few years. Of course, the proper frequency is unique for each floor.  However, on average, hardwood flooring should receive buff and restore services every three to six years.

No matter the age of the hardwood flooring, extreme wear and tear without regular maintenance, typically leads to refinishing.

Dustless Sanding and Refinishing of Hardwood Floors

Many people think that wood floor refinishing is a messy ordeal, stirring up dust and debris all over the home. Our hardwood dustless sanding equipment helps to capture and remove 99% of the dust we create while we sand and strip away the existing finish. 

The sky is the limit when considering hardwood stain color options. Click the text link to see just a few stain color options. Keep in mind, there are many ways to tweak the stain colors to achieve perfect look for your flooring. 

Bona products are our preferred stains and oils. This quality line of flooring products create exceptional combinations of stain colors and finishes. We achieve perfect adhesion between coats and can promise a beautiful result every single time.

The new Bona Craft Oil 2k is one of our favorite products because of its lower VOC, plant-based formula. This oil achieves a more natural or raw wood look with great penetration in one application. We can also apply multiple coats for the specific finish you want, even a modern, two-toned effect.

We know that picking a new color for the flooring throughout a space can be stressful. It is a big decision. That's the reason we offer our refinishing customers an in-home preview to help them select the perfect color. After sanding an area of your flooring, we apply sample of your three favorite stain colors to your floor in your space. We feel this is the best way to select the perfect stain color for your hardwood flooring.

All flooring breaks down over time. There are however many factors that speed the process. Such as:

  • Not using furniture pads
  • Sliding furniture around
  • High traffic
  • Not sweeping frequently
  • High heels
  • Pets
  • Kids
  • Not cleaning up spills immediately
  • Heavy sunlight exposure
  • Using the wrong cleaning products
  • Using a vacuum with a brush

Preparing for Hardwood Refinishing
Getting ready for hardwood floor refinishing work is easy. We just need you to ensure you have a 220-volt outlet from which we can operate our high-powered equipment. Most homes have these outlets behind their stove or electric dryer, if not elsewhere in the house.

The next step is removal of all of your home furnishings and other belongings for the sanding and refinishing process. To start working on your floors, the rooms must be clear of these items. You also need to remove expensive art and other wall hangings, as well as valuable curtains or drapes. For bathroom floors, ensure you have a plumber reinstall floor hardware removed during the work process.

Today’s floor sanders cause less dust than the electric sanders of the past. We use Bona and Clarke Dust Containment Vacuums. Oftentimes, this dust containment system is referred to as dustless sanding. Although this method is the latest and greatest and provides the most dust containment possible for hardwood floor refinishing, it does not provide 100% dust containment. Therefore, you may want hang plastic barriers in the doorways of rooms in which we will work, to contain any excess dust. If we hang these barriers for you, there is an additional charge.

For areas you want refinished, we must sand all of the floors at once. Otherwise, we cannot guarantee consistency in the stain color.

For the easiest process, you should consider being away from the home during our work. At least make arrangements to be well beyond the refinishing area. You cannot walk on newly stained or finished hardwood floors until they are fully dry. On average, you can expect the entire job to take between three to five days.
