At Voyageur Flooring we are often asked if its possible to lighten the look of hardwood floors. We also are asked if its possible to darken the look of hardwood floors; the answer to both questions is yes but this post will show pictures of a hardwood floor that was lightened.
You can see in the first picture that the hardwood floor is much darker. We were able to refinish these hardwood floors and lighten the feel significantly. The old, dark stain actually drew out the grain patterns in the wood quite well. Some people, such as this homeowner, don’t like grain patterns or don’t want them to be over powering. In this case were able to minimize how prominent the grain patterns looked.
Voyageur Flooring‘s ownership team, as stated in previous posts, loves to spend time fishing and enjoying the outdoors. Recently, one of Voyageur Flooring‘s three owners, Ben Witham, had the oppurtunity to travel to Colorado and do some fly fishing in the mountains with old friends. Sure Ben had a good time and enjoyed the company of great friends, but he also netted some gorgeous “CutBows” (combination of a Rainbow Trout and a Cutthroat Trout). Thanks to technology he was able to not just tell a fish story, but actually furnish proof that his time in the mountains yielded some beautiful fish. Take a look at the beautiful fish that Ben caught!

Hardwood Flooring Installation: After Picture
Despite the cold weather that we’ve had recently, Voyageur Flooring has been hard at work helping homeowners in the Twin Cities with their hardwood flooring needs. One of our most recent customers in St. Louis Park (a Minneapolis suburb) asked Voyageur Flooring to refinish their hardwood floors. The hardwood floor turned out great and is a wonderful example of the quality of work that Voyageur Flooring is committed to! Take a look below and see for yourself or you can visit our newly designed Before and After Gallery on our site…
Often times we at Voyageur Flooring here the question: how long does hardwood floor refinishing take? Although every hardwood floor is different, hardwood floor refinishing usually takes 2-3 days. Our goal at Voyageur Flooring is to sand the hardwood floor on day one. Upon completion of hardwood floor sanding, Voyageur Flooring then thoroughly cleans the hardwood floor by vacuuming the hardwood floor. Once the hardwood floor surface has been cleaned, Voyageur Flooring will apply one coat of water based polyurethane. That usually concludes day one. Day two Voyageur Flooring buffs the hardwood floor and applies another coat of water based polyurethane to the hardwood floor. This step is repeated by the end of the second day. In some cases with older Minneapolis/St. Paul homes, the hardwood floor needs extra sanding or perhaps repair and in these cases its not uncommon to have the process take three days.
