A question that Voyageur Flooring often hears from homeowners is “should I refinish or resurface my hardwood floors”? The difference between those two services is quite considerable. To refinish hardwood floors, Voyageur Flooring, actually sands your floor and removes the top layer of finish and wood. The purpose of this is to remove all deep knicks, scrapes, scratches, stains, etc. This process is applied to hardwood floors that have significant wear and tear. Often times hardwood floors have been neglected and as a result a hardwood floor refinish is the only option. Other floors have minor scratches and imperfections that are not as deep. These imperfections can often be cured by a resurfacing. To resurface a hardwood floor, Voyageur Flooring buffs the existing finish and applies a new coat of finish. The difference in price is about 2.00 per foot. Hardwood Floor resurfacing doesn’t not include a sanding but rather a buffing.
