Repairing and Restoring Hardwood Floors

Damage to your hardwood flooring can happen for a number of reasons. Normal wear and tear on hardwood flooring can dull the entire surface. Minor surface scratches can affect the look too. Additional damage from moving furniture, spilling liquids, and pets stains are common. While hardwood floors are typically very durable and long-lasting, these key factors determine the type of repair required for restoration of your hardwoods floors:

1. The type of wood

2. The stain and finishes

3. The frequency of maintenance

4. Neglect of care

    Hardwood Floor Scratch Repair

    The process of repairing a scratch depends on the severity of the scratch. More serious scratches require sanding while minor scratches like nicks or small grooves can be touched up to blend in with the surrounding stain.

    Hardwood Floor Split or cracked planks

    Using specialized, angled floor nails, we will rejoin the splits in your hardwood planks and use wood putty to mend the scar. Depending on the nature of the damage, sanding the surface and applying a new finish coat may be required.

    Hardwood Floor Gaping or Cupping

    Gaping is known as the presence of gaps between wood planks. Cupping is when the middle of your floorboards sink while the edges curl up. This type of damage is usually a result of excess moisture. Repair may include tightening, sanding, re-staining, and refinishing the flooring.

    Top methods of hardwood flooring repair

    One method of repair is to burnish and blend scratches back into the existing floor. In older floors repair may require sanding to a break-off point because an aging effect cannot be reproduced. Or, repair will require sanding the floor and replacing boards, and sections from wall-to-wall can be repaired.

    Types of repair services include:

    • Scratch and groove repair
    • Split or cracked planks
    • Finish repair
    • Water repair
    • Board replacement
    • Gaping and Cupping Repair

    Protect your family and floors

    Floors that are in poor condition are hazardous and can cause slivers, toe stubs, tripping, and even falls. Gaps and gouges in the floorboards will also collect allergens and other harmful impurities.

    If your wood flooring has reached an advanced age, been subjected to heavy use, or improperly installed, repair will restore luster.
