Hardwood floor restoration Ocean City, NJ 08226
This room was our problem room, the pictures you see above are the before pictures and the floorsanded raw. if you look at the top right hand corner someone had already done a repair, and in front of the door we had wood there that was damaged. This is where we put some wood fill in and then stained it to match the floors which you will see in the next article.
This is a pine floor that we did a hardwood floor restoration on for a client that found us on Angie's list. They live in Rhode Island but have a summer home in Ocean City, Nj 08226. This pine floor is on the second story of their home and really needed a lot of TLC. There were repairs that needed to be done but the cost to buy reclaimed wood was outrageously expensive, so we worked our magic, and they came out great and the client Lori Winter was very pleased.
I had first gone to the home to provide a free in home estimate and gone over all of the issues with the floor and what their options were. Lori hired us to do her hardwood floor refinishing and come up with solutions to the repairs with out having to buy reclaimed wood.
The day we started her wood floor refinishing the repairs were taken care of and the floor was sanded 3 times, a hard, medium and then a fine sand. Once the floors were ready we applied a natural seal coat and about an hour later we applied our first coat of 100% oil based polyurethane. We like this polyurethane, the brand name is Dura Seal, because the smell dissipates in about 2 days. If we used a poly blend the odor would linger in your home for quite some time. Some contractors only use water base polyurethane, which we don't like on oak or pine floors, because it gets them in and out of your job faster. We came back the next day and screened the floors, which is preparing the last coat to accept the next coat and applied the final coat to the floor.
You will see in some of the pictures where we had to use wood fill, when we came back to apply the final coat we actually stained where the wood fill was so that it blended with the floor. This job came out great and Lori was very happy with the outcome. If you look at the articles you will see she sent us a email praising the work that we did. We love making sure all of our clients are thrilled with their jobs because we take great pride in our work.
