The first step on any wood floor refinishing project is to meet the client in their home. This allows to examine the wood floors for uneven surfaces, water damage and extensive scratches.
Next, we’ll discuss whether you’re envisioning a color change in the wood floors using a stain and determine which finish suits your needs the best. At this point, it’s also helpful to know if you’re remodeling other aspects of the room. For example, maybe you want to update the base boards during this time or you have brand new cabinetry coming in that is a unique color that needs to contrast the floor.
Five Star Floors will submit a detailed project quote encompassing everything we discussed in our initial meeting as well as project timelines. As a guide, a wood floor refinishing project for 1,500-1,800 square feet will take about 5- 8 days to complete. The good news is that during that time the floors are walkable at night with socks on your feet.
Whether you have maple, hickory, Brazilian cherry or oak hardwood floors, Five Star Floors uses only the highest quality products to refinish your wood floors. Our client’s love that it’s fast drying, Green Indoor Air Certified, with a very low, non-offending odor. That means it’s safe for children and certified for use in schools. They also appreciate our clean, dust containment system, so you’re assured the rest of house remains dust-free during the process.
Upon completion, our technicians will review the work with the client. We’ll talk drying time, curing time as well as when it’s okay to let “Fido” back in the house. Believe it or not, it isn’t because of an odor. “Fido” has sharp nails and will scratch the newly refinished wood floor 😉
Instead of leaving the minute we’re done, we take the time to explain best practices with our clients. You just made an investment and we want you to maintain the beauty and shine of those refinished floors. We’ll leave you with foot pads for your furniture, extra polishing & refinishing products.
