Sanding and finishing


New life for old floors: sanding and finishing

Let us breathe new life into your old hardwood floors and restore them to their their original beauty. They have served your home or business well over the years and there is no need to replace them.

What is sanding and refinishing?

When hardwood is manufactured, it is made with a tongue on one side and a groove in the other. These tongues and grooves allow the floor to hold tightly together through the wear and tear that any floor experiences. What that also means is that close to a third of the thickness of the wooden plank is located above the tongue and groove. Thus, in sanding and refinishing, we come in and sand down a very thin layer off of the surface of the wood. It is above the tongue and groove, so it does not affect the stability of the floor in the least, but boy does it change the overall look. All of those years of scuffing, scratches, and wear are lifted from the floor, returning the wood to its original, unworn state and beauty. There are no new materials needed for your floor (they are already there!) you just needed to have a hardwood sanding to bring them back to life. Once the floor has been sanded, you have the option of leaving the wood its natural color, having it stained to match the color it once was, or staining it an entirely different color. Once the staining has been done, several coats of polyurethane are used to provide your hardwood with a durable finish. The only materials that you might want us to bring in new are perhaps trim molding, to give your hardwood finishing that added touch of beauty.

Even on stairs

Do you have one of those classic sets of stairs where the hardwood shows on the outside edges, around the spindles of the banister, or on the bullnose of a lower step or landing? We can sand and refinish those as well. And if you don't have steps like these, but have always dreamed of having such, we can also cover your existing stairs with hardwood treads and risers, all with a style and stain to match the wood in the rest of the house. At Carpet Village, we take great pride in our sanding and finishing services and believe that you will be impressed by the way it will transform your home. If you live south of Baltimore, in the Linthicum Heights, Ferndale, Glen Burnie, Severn, Millersville, Pasadena, Severna Park, or Arnold areas, why not stop by our showroom and ask us what our sanding and finishing service can do for you.
