HARDWOOD FLOOR REFINISHING

Hardwood floors are installed with the intention of keeping them for a lifetime. But about every eight to ten years, hardwood floors will need to be sanded and refinished. To keep them looking better for longer, homeowners can also plan to recoat their floors every four to six years. 

HARDWOOD FLOOR INSTALLATION

Hardwood flooring is fast becoming the favorite floor install. Hardwood flooring has a lifetime benefit with minimal upkeep and maintenance. The beauty of wood floors can’t be surpassed with colors and grains to compliment any home, decor, and feel.

HARDWOOD FLOOR REPAIR

As part of the sand & refinishing process or on it’s own, Hardwood Floor Guys can repair hardwood and laminate flooring. Depending on the type of flooring and the damage, we can offer options from removing & replacing the damaged board to sanding out the damage.
