The good thing about having hardwood flooring is that if you don’t like the current color anymore, you can have us change it by sanding the floor down to the bare wood, apply pre-stain conditioner, stain than apply a few coats of polyurethane for long lasting protection.
A lot of our clients have us change the color of their hardwood floors to match their new furniture, some do it to hide previously water or pet stained damaged flooring.
Whatever the reason may be, we can do it. Just pick a color and we’ll try to match it as best as we can. We can also make a few sample boards to help you make up your mind.
Here are some of our stain photos. Please keep in mind that most of the photos was taken during or before the final coat was applied so you will notice some imperfections and unleveled finish.
Staining Average Cost Factor:$2.50-$4.00+ per sq/ft. Staining is no doubt the hardest part of the flooring business and takes up the most time and materials. Why? There are many reasons. We have to make sure there are as little to no scratch/sanding mark on your floors before the stained is applied, any scratch mark that is not removed will be highlighted by the stain once it’s applied, darker stain will show the most.
To remove edger swirls requires a lot of time on our hands and knees to palm sand as much edger mark as possible, which takes a lot of time and effort. After all the sanding is done, we have to apply the pre-stain conditioner, and once the conditioner dries, we have to apply the stain, and once the stain dries we have to clean the floor than apply 3 coats of polyurethane 1 each day.
A typical 500-650 sq/ft. Stain job can take anywhere between 5-6+ days. So if we can stain the floor on the third day after everything has been sanded and the floors been conditioned, we can add a coat the 4th day, another coat the 5th day and the final on the 6th day.
Everything we do on a stain job is straight from the book, we don’t cut corners like most others do.
