A few weeks ago we were contacted by a young woman who’d recently come into some property. Her great aunt was no longer able to maintain the home, so she gave the property and all its responsibilities to her great niece, who lived in the area and had been looking to purchase a new home anyway. It was an incredibly beautiful house, but more so than that, it was an incredibly old house.
Before the young woman could fully move in, she needed to take care of some major repairs, which included fixing up the hardwood floors. The young woman began looking for a hardwood floor contractor in Melissa, and came across our company.
Hardwood Floor Refinishing Estimate Starts
We had someone come out for a consultation right away. Some of the hardwood floors in the home were in decent condition and would only require hardwood floor refinishing. In other spots where the finish was more deteriorated, hardwood floor repair would be necessary. These spots didn’t have the finish present as protection against moisture and had evidence of water damage.
The young woman was interested in our wood floor installation service in Melissa as well. There were a few areas in the house that were currently carpeted, and she wanted to make the flooring consistent throughout the home with some oak floors to match the other hardwood flooring. She selected an oak option from our flooring store that she loved.
We started the project with the new hardwood floor installation. The wood we selected was unfinished, which was intentional. Because we needed to refinish the other wood in the home regardless, applying the stain to everything at the same time would ensure the staining was consistent throughout the house. Our team worked quickly and efficiently to get the new wood installed so we could move on to the next step.
The hardwood floor repair came next. Some of the more damaged boards in the home were replaced using the same flooring from the installation. Once that was complete, we began the last aspect of the project: the hardwood floor refinishing. Our team sanded the remaining finish off the old boards to make sure the whole house started off on the same blank slate.
Finally we were able to apply the new finish. The young woman had chosen a light wash that was consistent with the style from when the house was originally built. She was incredibly pleased with the final results and, after showing a picture of the new floors to her great aunt, was thrilled to find out that she loved them as well.
