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.
