Refinishing vs Replacing Your Hardwood Floors


Hardwood floors can be a great investment in your home because they’re durable, timeless, aesthetically pleasing, and they also add value to your home. But over the years, the floor will endure its fair share of scuffs and scrapes that will need some professional attention.

When the time comes where you think you need some much-needed maintenance, you’ll probably consider replacing the floors. However, refinishing them may be the fix you need.

At Rees Custom Floors, we’re here to help you learn about refinishing your hardwood floors and how it’s a cost-effective approach to avoid replacing your floors too early.

How Refinishing Helps Your Hardwood Floors

Refinishing your hardwood floors is more than just applying a coat of stain. The process involves sanding your floors to even out the surfaces to help eliminate small cosmetic damages. Once the floors are sanded and evened out, lacquer or stain is then brushed onto the wood. This not only helps make the faded color look more vibrant, but it will help add a layer of protection to the wood, even making it waterproof.

Replacing Your Hardwood Floors

Since hardwood floors are a costly addition to your home, you won’t want to replace them unless it’s absolutely necessary. Replacing your wood floors is only reserved for severe cases, such as irreparable damage caused by water, cupping or crowning, or even buckling. If there are a few minor scratches, refinishing may be the more cost-effective approach to bringing your floors back to their original aesthetics.
