Our Sanding and Finishing Process
This process consists of covering cabinets, walls, light fixtures, electronics, smoke detectors, AC vents and doorways to areas adjacent to our working areas with masking plastic and low adhesion tape. This process allows us to collect and control 99% of the dust created by our installations, sanding and finishing.
The last 1% of the dust cleaning is done by our team. Our goal is to leave your home as clean, if not cleaner as when it was when we started the job.
The sanding process involves using our professional-grade floor sanders to ensure the wood floors are prepared properly (i.e. sanded flat and free of machine marks) in preparing for staining (if applicable) and applying finishing materials.
Choosing a color for your floors is sometimes a difficult decision. To help guide you with your decision we will apply a series of color samples (approximately 18 x 22 inches) which should assist you in deciding which color to stain your flooring.
Our color masters work with many different stains, dyes and oils to be able to help you achieve the best possible color for your flooring.
When applying stain to your floors we will get down and hand stain them. By getting closer to the floor and using our hands, it allows us to detect any noticeable imperfections, repair them during the staining process, and provide for an even color (depending upon the color variation of the floors).
This is the final step to ensure we achieve the most beautiful wood floors for you. We use top grade finishes and oils that are appropriate for high-traffic areas. We typically apply three coats of finish and sand in between each coat to make sure the final product is as free as possible of dirt, dust, and imperfections.
