Take years off the look of your floors with professional resurfacing

Would your floors benefit from resurfacing? The floors in your home get walked upon and trampled across daily. While high-quality floors can stand up to this type of usage, even the best flooring materials will eventually show their age. Instead of spending a small fortune to replace your floors, it may be smarter to have a professional resurface them for you.

How to resurface a floor

As the term implies, when you resurface a floor, you essentially replace the surface. The goal is to remove areas of wear and tear. And yes, this process is just as complicated as it sounds. You need to know exactly what you’re doing to avoid damaging your floors even more. Here’s the process to follow:

1. Remove any baseboards and molding. 
You don’t want to damage the trim around your home while you refinish the floor.

2. Fix any loose planks.
If you have any squeaky areas on the floor, you'll want to repair them before resurfacing and nailing down any loose boards.

3. Protect your home.
You’ll create a lot of dust when you resurface the floors. Cover anything you don’t want to get damaged with plastic sheeting, including doorways, ducts, windows, and fixtures.

4. Sand the floor.
This step removes the old sealant and stain from the floor. Wear a mask to prevent breathing in lung-irritating dust particles.

5. Clean up.
You need to sweep, mop, and vacuum any dust you generate from sanding. Otherwise, you’ll end up sealing it into the wood.

6. Apply a stain.
Choose a stain color that brings out the natural beauty of the wood and blends in with your home decor.

7. Add a finishing coat.
Once the stain dries, you’ll need to seal it. Use a polyurethane top coat to protect the surface and give your floors a high shine.

Showed up on time, did what they said they would do and did it professionally and for the estimated price, which was very fair. From prep to painting to touch-up they were on top of it. Would recommend Battle Born Painting for any painting job.

I highly recommend this company. They did an amazing job on my upcoming listing. They were also referred to me by another Realtor.

Will (owner) was a pleasure to work with and he is extremely knowledgeable in his craft, he is honest and takes the time to explain the process and what to expect.

Their set up is fantastic, they really take their time masking everything out. The paint lines are perfect and they stained a ton of natural wood, all the cabinets in the house and refinished the tile countertops.

My listing looks so beautiful 😍 they really pay attention to detail and the whole crew was super sweet.

I’ve already booked them for another upcoming listing and will continue to use this company and refer it out to others.

Why diy is not recommended

It takes a lot of steps to resurface a floor. Unless you have the time and experience needed, you may find yourself in over your head. This project takes several days to complete, especially if you do it alone. However, a professional company like Battle Born Painting will finish the project much faster. Plus, they’ll most likely do a better job.

Why is that? Professionals have experience and training. Your floor won’t be the first one they resurface. They also have all the tools needed to do it right. The average homeowner doesn’t have all the necessary equipment stored in their garage. If you attempt this project on your own, just think about how many times you’ll have to head to the store to buy more supplies.
