Resurface hardwood floors are normally done only once a year, but you can do it whenever you feel like you need to. Before you begin to plan any resurfacing, you might want to check several things out.
Since the work can be pretty expensive, there are few things you have to know about resurface hardwood floors. First, make sure that you have the best floor guy. If the person you’re hiring doesn’t have enough experience, you might risk your floor to be uneven on the resurfacing process. The worst thing that comes with it is that it can also weaken your floor. Therefore, it is best if you get a floor guy from the reference of a close trusted friend or colleague.
Second, you can ask the floor guy whether your floor need full resurface or not. Some cases would only require you to do a maintenance coat, in which you only remove the previous finish and recoat it with new finishing. The process will save you about 50% budget instead of doing full refinishing. However, if you wish to replace the finish with another color, the chance is you will increase the cost by about 50%. Thus, make sure that you have a good planning before beginning to resurface hardwood floors.
