When getting new floors installed or doing maintenance to your current ones, don't let sheen level be an after thought. You consider so many factors and it's important to be educated on the different sheens and the results your floors will have due to them.
Styles come and go, and it's the same with hardwood floors. A particular color for a floor might be popular for a few years and then everyone gets sick of it and wants something different. That's been the case recently with floor colors. Customers really love darker hardwood floors. We love the way they look to. They can add elegance to any room. We recently began a project that involved resanding light ash floors and restaining them to a darker color. We'd like to share some of the results with you.
Occasionally, a customer will share a wonderful piece of social media with us that has to do with DIY. We always get a kick out of any type of video or photo gallery detailing the struggle of an individual that decided to refinish his or her hardwood floors on their own. We'd like to say that it can definitely be done on your own, but it's going to be a lot more work than most people bargain for. With plenty of research and preparation, anyone can do their own hardwood floors. Unfortunately, the internet has spawned a type attitude that affirms the idea that all professionals in any trade are trying to rip you off. Hardwood floor professionals are charging astronomical prices simply because they can. It simply isn't true, but it's nearly impossible to tell these people otherwise. We've compiled a list of our favorite DIY projects that went terribly.
