Re-coat your current finish

Extend the life of your existing hardwood floor

The Re-Coat Process

This method is suitable for hardwood floors that are in good condition, but are showing signs of wear or scratches.  This process is popular with people who want to extend the life of their existing finish or are looking to spruce up their floors before putting their home on the market. This process is equally useful to remove or minimize scratch damage.


The process includes:

A thorough vacuuming, machine wet-scrub, rinse, dry and hand sanding the edges.  Then, using dustless sanding technology, we "screen sand" the floor, vacuum up any stray dust, double tack cloth and apply one to two coats of commercial grade two-component waterborne urethane finish.  A freshly re-coated hardwood floor not only looks better but is smoother, easier to clean and helps protect the floor from future wear.


The purpose of "screen sanding" is to lightly abrade your existing finish to create a good mechanical bond, ensuring maximum adhesion of a fresh coat of finish. The process does not sand through the existing finish.
