Hardwood flooring restoration and fix seems like an incredibly challenging topic in concept -- especially when you are not a do-it-yourselfer, also you do not wish to get your hands dirty with real world building. Hardwood flooring installation is a intricate process, but altering the color of your floors is really as simple as one, two, three.
Here are the measures for hardwood flooring refinishing:
1. Sand your flooring down during preparation.
Depending on the nature of your floor, you may have to do multiple passes with different grades of grits -- every 1 finer than the last -- to make sure the flooring is smooth enough to accept whatever polyurethane or stain you employ.
2. Lay down the blot.
Pick a colour, or go au naturel. You can choose from a variety of goods, such as ebony, gold oak, mid-color products, etc.. Bear in mind that every floor has different demands. The color and type of stain that you pick, as well as the application procedure, should depend on the aesthetics you are attempting to accomplish, the age of the timber, its grade as well as the species of timber.
3. Coat the floor with polyurethane.
Most people utilize oil-based polyurethanes. You may select from among various options, such as glossy, matte, and satin. The vast majority (~95%) of people choose satin, since this type of finish will show fewer scratches.
If you refinish the floor and eliminate the present stain or merely apply glaze?
Glazes can work, but they remain on the surface, and they can burn with time. When they do weather down, they could leave unseemly lighter stains. Glaze may be the ideal option, however, if you have really thin engineered floor planks, or in the event that you simply can not deal with all the sanding for any reason (too expensive, not the right gear, allergic to dust, etc).
