One of the first things a person notices when they walk into a home or business is the floor. A floor that is ugly scratches, gouges or a faded color is immediately apparent when a person enters the area.
While many people are aware of the beauty of refinishing a wood floor, they do not realize that floors made of tile, cement, vinyl, stone and granite will last indefinitely and can be refinished to look like new.
Because of its construction, refinishing laminate is not recommended.
At Renov8, we are happy to help residential and business customers refinish their flooring to a like-new condition. A beautiful floor extends a welcome to all who enter a home or business and refinishing is much less expensive than a complete replacement.
Types of Flooring
Porcelain, ceramic and stone tiles are most popular choices for kitchens, entryways and bathrooms. These can be repaired and restored to a new like condition including changing the color, and the surface finishes if desired. It is also possible to make it look like faux marble or another type of material that will fit in with your current or renovated area.
Concrete floors were once only located in warehouse, garage or basement. However, today they are popular with businesses and homeowners. In some situations they are often enhanced with an overlay system that makes it resemble stone, brick or stone. While this type of floor is extremely durable, over time it will accumulate nicks, scratches and other types of damage. Repairing and refinishing a cement floor is one of our specialties.
Wood flooring is one of the most popular on the market. In addition to being beautiful, it can last for years. However, it will not stay beautiful on its own. Over time, scratches will appear and the finish will become dull. Refinishing a wood floor requires the expertise of highly trained professionals if its features are to be correctly displayed.
Engineered hardwood floors can be sanded and refinished but not as many times as regular hardwood. Invented in the 1960s, they are much less expensive than ordinary hardwood and are found in about 30% of new construction projects.
How Refinishing works
Each type of refinishing requires different materials and a specific procedure if the floor is to have long-term durability and a professional looking finish.
- The floor is thoroughly scrubbed and cleaned to remove all dirt and other debris.
- All nicks, scratches, and chips are repaired prior to application of epoxy resin, polyester or other materials, appropriate for the type of floor being resurfaced. Any changes in appearance are made at this time.
- A bonding agent primer is applied between the top coating and the surface providing a chemical and mechanical bond. The surrounding areas are protected by masking to prevent damage from over spraying.
- After drying and curing the scratches, rust and chips have been replaced by a new shining, and tough, surface.
- Each type of floor refinishing requires specific equipment, primers, bonding materials, top coats and clear finishing. This results in a durable, affordable and beautiful alternative to tearing out a floor and doing a complete replacement.
