5 Benefits Of Refinishing Hardwood Floors

As hardwood flooring specialists, our team at G3 Hardwood Floors is committed to helping homeowners throughout Colorado Springs to provide them with beautiful and transformative flooring for their homes. As dedicated craftsmen, we have learned the ins and outs of hardwood flooring, including the many benefits that come along with the decision to refinish hardwood floors. 

Over years of use, hardwood floors will begin to show signs of wear and tear. For many homeowners, this is a sign of needing a costly floor replacement. Fortunately, simply having your floors refinished will bring your hardwood floors back to its former appearance. As a natural material, hardwood floors have the ability to last a lifetime if properly maintained through being routinely refinished every 7 to 10 years. If you are considering having your floors professionally refinished, here are a few of the many benefits you can expect:   

1. Protect Floor  

The floors within our homes undergo a lot of wear and tear. From heavy foot traffic to accidental spills, it’s important to ensure they are protected. As part of the refinishing process, hardwood floors receive a protective top coat that acts as a sealant and will ward off damage from water and everyday activity. When a floor is not maintained properly through refinishing, it is put at a higher risk of sustaining more serious damage that could lead to the floor’s integrity being compromised. 

2. Repair Damage

Over time, it’s natural for floors to receive scratches and dents from everyday wear and tear. That is why the refinishing process includes sanding down each floorboard until it’s smooth. Sanding will remove surface level damage as well as layers of old stain that can compromise the appearance of your floors. After all blemishes have been repaired, new stain and a protective top coat will be used to ensure your newly finished floors are protected from receiving more damage in the future.  

3. Improve Appearance  

Hardwood floors can begin to take on a worn appearance after years of use. If your floors have discoloration from heavy traffic or water damage, having them refinished can help fix those imperfections. After being sanded, floors receive a fresh coat of stain before being resealed. While the sanding will remove any discoloration, you can also further customize the appearance of your floors by picking a new stain color. After your floors are sanded, restained and resealed, they will look and feel brand new again. 

4. Save Money

Another benefit to having your hardwood floors refinished is the noticeable price difference between refinishing and replacing. Having a new floor installed can cost significantly more money than simply having it refinished. Hardwood floors have the ability to last a lifetime if properly maintained. With routine refinishing, your hardwood floors will be a one-time investment instead of a continuous financial burden.    

5. Improve Home Value

The flooring in your home makes a lasting impression. Whether you are looking to increase the beauty of your home or are considering putting your home on the market, having well-maintained floors matter. Hardwood floors are a popular choice for new buyers due to its durability and charming appearance. Newly refinished hardwood floors only add to the value and appeal of your home.
