What You Should Know Before Contacting a Denver Hardwood Floor Refinishing Service

May 9, 2018

There’s nothing like a beautiful hardwood floor to add beauty to your home. But after about 20 years or so, most hardwood floors will become dull, scratched, and discolored from wear. This is normal, and most hardwood floors can be refinished several times during its lifetime. You’ll know when it’s time to get in touch with a Denver hardwood floor refinishing service when your hardwood floors detract from your home’s beauty rather than add to it.
Here’s what you should consider before you get your project started.

How Long Has the Company Been in Business?

You don’t want to entrust your floors to just anyone, so find a reputable company that has been in business for a while. Check references and talk to them to ensure you get a good feel. At TGB Flooring, we’ve been working with satisfied customers since 1990!

Should You Do the Refinishing Yourself?

Probably not. You might have friends who have done it themselves—and who have done a decent job—but the professionals will tell you it’s a bad idea. Although it might seem self-serving that they would rather you hire them to do it, the truth is that with the equipment you can rent at the local home improvement store, you can’t get the same excellent results the professionals can. Furthermore, if you look into the equipment rental as well as your invested time, you will quickly see that you are not going to save all that much money. And the risk of you ruining your floors is a real one!

If you have doubts, read this article about why there are some projects you should not do yourself, including
refinishing your hardwood floors.

How Long Can You Expect the Project to Take?

Depending on the size of your home, you can expect the hardwood floor refinishing project to take at least three days—and possibly a full week. Because of the sawdust involved, you’ll probably want to move out of your home for the duration.

Is One Time of Year Better Than Another to Do the Project?

In terms of weather, it doesn’t really matter, and your floors can be refinished any time. But if you will be storing items outside, it might make more sense to do the project during dry months.

Costs Can Vary, So Get Quotes Ahead of Time

What your neighbor paid to have their floors refinished might be very different from what you will pay. A lot will depend on the layout of your house, whether you have stairs, and other considerations. As with all home improvement projects, it’s a good idea to get quotes ahead of time so you know exactly what to expect.
