We have trained, professional crews, who use top-of-the-line, dustless equipment to sand, scQrape, buff, seal, and stain hardwood floors. The sanding procedure usually takes anywhere from 2-4 days, depending on which procedure you decide to go with. There are several staining options:
This takes two days. First we sand the flooring, then apply a coat of sealer. We then follow this with two coats of polyurethane. The final product will have a light honey tint to it.
The traditional staining process takes three days. For this, a single coat of penetrating stain is placed on the wood. We then finish the staining process by applying two coats of polyurethane. With different stains available, this may range from a light yellow to a deep red or brown.
This takes about four days to complete. For this, we sand and then bleach the wood. We then follow this with two coats of non-yellowing polyurethane. The final color will appear a whitish color.
Each approach is perfectly acceptable in the home. Ultimately, the decision comes down to the personal preference of the homeowner. We are able to provide you with a sample of each of these types of finishes. This can give you some insight into what the finished product looks like.
