SCRATCHES

Over time, hardwood floors lose durability as their protective finish wears off, making them prone to scratches and damage. Refinishing removes these imperfections, restoring your floors to a like-new condition. This process not only enhances their appearance but also reinforces their durability, ensuring they stay beautiful and resilient for more years to come.

DISCOLORATION

Hardwood floors can become discolored due to sunlight exposure and heavy foot traffic. This wear and tear, combined with fading finishes, leads to an uneven appearance. Refinishing involves sanding down the surface to remove discoloration and imperfections, restoring a uniform look. With the right choice of stain, your floors will look seamless and brand new.
