Our client had just bought a home near Liberty Park and wanted to remove the carpet and refinish the original hardwood which was a combination of Oak and Fir. Unfortunately, when we pulled up the carpet, we found screws. A previous owner screwed-down the hardwood to stop squeaking boards before they laid the carpet.
When we pulled up the carpet we found the hardwood had been screwed down.
We may be good, but we can’t make screw holes suddenly disappear. The hardwood is ruined and the owner had no choice but to change directions.
We could do nothing about the screw holes in the original hardwood.
We installed new 4″ Red Oak over the existing floor and it turned out beautifully.
We installed new hardwood over old.
The homeowner loved the new hardwood.
Although disappointed she couldn’t restore the original hardwood in her home, she was thrilled with the finished product.
