“We have used these guys a number of times for our family-owned rental building. To respond to the growing demand, we decided to gradually switch from carpet to hardwood flooring in our suites. And thankfully, the original floors still existed underneath the old carpet, but in a quite rough shape. Hardwood floor refinishing In was our solution. They restored the floor to a like-new condition at very reasonable prices. Thank you for your great job!”

Thickness of wear layer is an important feature of engineered hardwood floor. Planks with 2mm top layer can be easily scratched down revealing lower layers. Floor with a top layer of 3mm or more can be sanded and refinished in case of any surface damages or deep scratches, and generally costs more, with all other features being equal.
Engineered hardwood flooring comes in various width. 5″ plank is considered to be a classic plank width for engineered hardwood floor and the least expensive with other qualities being equal. 7.5″ wide plank flooring is the most common option as wider planks visually expand the place and are most stable for installation.
Three-layered engineered hardwood is less stable than multilayered engineered hardwood. With a less number of layers in the hardwood core, the wood is more likely to start swelling and shrinking. While multilayered engineered hardwood is more than three layers criss-cross which enhances its stability.
WOOD FLOOR REFINISHING: SAND, STAIN, REFINISH
When it comes to hardwood floor renewal, refinishing hardwood floors is the best solution known so far. You get the look of new floors without spending a fortune on new floor installation. Floor refinishing can handle a number of the most common physical damages such as, scratches, dents, stains and worn floor areas. It gives plenty of room for redesigning as you can change the colour and finish. Plus, it certainly brings a healthier environment into your place as cleaning becomes so much easier with a new floor coating. You can only benefit from professionally done hardwood floor refinishing – no dust, no mess, no hassle. To schedule a free in-home consultation, please contact our experts.
In case your floors are still in quite a good shape, but need some touch of refreshment, you can certainly get away with sandless hardwood floor refinishing. It starts with buffing the floor which takes away all minor damages. Buffing means removing the old finish without cutting the wood itself. And it ends with applying a new top coat of polyurethane. Sandless refinishing is a great and inexpensive way to rejuvenate hardwood floors and protect them for longer without having to sand them. The only thing to remember is that screening does not let you change the colour of your existing floors, but only restores them to a better condition. If you are not sure which method will work for you, our experts are willing to help.

Engineered hardwood flooring has a look and feel of a hardwood flooring and increased stability and resistance to moisture.

This structure grants a lot of benefits to this type of flooring.
The most stable flooring available. Multiple-layer construction prevents engineered hardwood flooring from warping, twisting and swelling and makes it more humidity resistant. It is possible to resurface this type of flooring, but only once or twice as the a hardwood veneer is quite a thin layer
