Refinishing your hardwood floors can be a big project. You
might not know how long it will take, and you’re worried that it could prove to
be a huge disruption to your daily routine. In other words, deciding to do this
isn’t something to do lightly. That said, choosing to replace your floors
entirely can bring its own set of challenges.
First of all, you have to think about the
timeline for your project. This is because you will need to move the furniture
around or hire someone to do it for you. Then the next step is to sand the
wood, and that task isn’t easy for everyone, as some homeowners will have no
idea what to do. There will the dust and strong odors everywhere, and you won’t
be able to let your kids or pets wander into the room to play. That’s why the
prospect of replacing the floor is so much more inviting.
After all of that is dealt with, you will next
have to consider what the rest of your home looks like. In other words, what
are the aesthetics of the room where you are thinking of refinishing the
floors? Different trends will come and go, and you might want
your hardwood floors to remain timeless. Then you might decide to change out
the oak for something more exotic, like walnut or Brazilian cherry. What about
artistic flourishes? Do you consider your floors to an important part of
impressing your visitors? You will also need to think about the direction in
which the floors run.
Damage to the Floors
Finally, you will need to account for how much
damage has been done to the floors. It’s not possible to refinish every single
hardwood floor. Sometimes, they’re just too old and worn out. Structural damage
to the subfloor is a major issue, as is dealing with any gaps that may have
formed. Warping, chipping, staining, and signs of termite infestation are all
severe and beyond what refinishing can help hide.
