An acquaintance asked us to replace several square feet of Red Oak and refinish a bedroom for a family who lost a loved one to suicide. It’s easier, and probably just better all around, to tear out and replace wood that has been compromised this way. Our hearts go out to the family who lost their loved one, but we were happy to be able to help them move on with their lives and reduce some of the visual reminders that may have lingered.
The images below show the process. With the bedroom only being 120 sq ft, it was just a one day project.
