Red Oak Hardwood Sanding & Refinishing

Refinishing hardwood floors is one of the most cost effective ways to improve the look and value of your home. Beers Flooring recently meet with a family in Annapolis that wanted refinish the Red Oak Hardwood floors throughout their home. After years of foot traffic, sun exposure, water spills and accidental dings, the Annapolis customer wanted to bring the floors back to life. Additionally, the customer wished to change the color of the floors to a darker, more modern color.

Below are a couple of photos from our Annapolis customer's home during and after the restoration process. The first photo shows the living room and staircase after our professional flooring team sanded and removed the poly, stain, scratches, discoloration and damage caused over the years. The team also spent time repairing areas where there were small cracks and crevices. This step was essential to staining and sealing the floors properly.

The second picture shows the beauty of the Red Oak floors after Beers Flooring experts stained and finished the floor. The color seen here is a custom color created using a combination of Miniwax dark walnut and English chestnut stains. This custom stain showcased the grain variation in the red oak floors and gave them a beautiful, modern light espresso tone. The hardwood was then sealed with three coats of Glitsa Stain to ensure durability and an added layer of stain resilience.

Rustic Hickory Hardwood Floors in Annapolis

Beers Flooring recently installed these beautiful hickory hardwood floors in a client's home in the St. Margaret's neighborhood of Annapolis, MD. The floors are "kerf sawn" giving the wood the rustic look of antique or reclaimed hardwood floors. Kerf Sawn is a technique whereby saw marks cut perpendicular to the length of the boards. Combined with the natural beauty of color variation in hickory, the client's floors convey warmth and homeyness.

Additionally, our St. Margaret's client selected wide plank hardwood of 5" width. The larger plank size creates fewer seams in the pattern and makes the room look larger than it actually is. Finishing the hickory hardwood floors, our professional installation team sealed and protected the wood with a Rubio Pure finish. Rubio Monocoat Pure Oil Finish is a green product that contains no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or harmful chemicals. As such, the finish has no effect on indoor air quality and no residual smell when it is completed. The finish on the hickory floors enhances the rustic feel of the floors by providing highlights and contrast to the texture created by the kerf saw technique.

Beers Flooring is a professional hardwood floor installation company. Since 1992, Beers Flooring has installed exotic, reclaimed, domestic and green hardwood flooring all over homes in the Annapolis area.




Custom Hardwood Floor Herringbone Pattern & Stain

Throughout history many a culture have been known to be excellent builders. The best engineers however were the Romans. To this day you can see examples of their engineering feats all over Europe in the form of ancient roads. Romans started building roads to expand their Empire and trade routes in 500 BC. That they last today is a testament to their skills and techniques. One of the most notable techniques is the use of a herringbone pattern which greatly improved the strength and durability of the roads. Not only is the herringbone still a solid construction technique but it is a beautiful pattern. When used in flooring it exudes classic and refined styling.

Recently, Beers Flooring had the privilege of installing the classic herringbone pattern using Select White Oak for an Annapolis, MD client's home. Our client wanted the traditional look of herringbone but also a floor that would compliment their contemporary decor. Beers Flooring experts specialize in custom floors patterns and have mastery of color and stain applications on hardwood. For this flooring project, Beers applied Rubio oil in cotton white. The matte finish of the stain not only emphasizes the grain of the hardwood and the design pattern, but it matches our client's contemporary design aesthetic. Rubio Oil is made from natural plant oils so it is environmentally friendly and emits no VOCs. An additional benefit of Rubio Oil is that if your hardwood is scratched or wears in one area, the floor can be spot repaired (rather than having to refinish the entire floor). Rubio Oil is available in 30 additional colors as well. The custom flooring possibilities are limitless!

Antique Hardwood Refinishing in Annapolis, MD

Historic Pine Hardwood Floor Restoration

When Annapolis Green, a community environmental group, decided to relocate their offices to a storefront on Maryland Avenue, they were faced with some big renovation challenges. The first of which, was the historic hardwood flooring. The original pine floors were well over 60 years old, and as with many old hardwood floors, were covered in layers and layers of paint. The pine floors were last painted with a dull, dark brown color that was chipped, pealing and unattractive (see before photos below). With Annapolis Green’s mission to encourage sustainability and responsible environmentalism, it was only natural that they investigate earth friendly ways to restore their hardwood floors to their natural beauty. The group turned to Beers Flooring to evaluate the antique pine floors and provide a plan for responsible restoration.

Over the last 25 years, Beers Flooring has refinished many antique and historic floors all over Annapolis and the surrounding areas. Almost all old hardwood floors can be salvaged and refinished. However, it takes skilled and seasoned flooring professionals to refinish, repair, patch and treat them correctly. Many antique floors suffer damage from termites, pets, water, foot traffic and general wear. Beers’ professional floor refinishing team are all employees of the company and have the experience and technical training to tackle a delicate project such as the one for Annapolis Green.

Beers Flooring started by sanding the antique pine floors to remove the layers and layers of paint, stain, polish and dirt. Once the raw wood is in view, Beers’ Flooring staff walked the floor with the client to talk about which sections of the floors would need repairs or patching. After making the agreed upon repairs, the Beers Flooring staff applied a satin sheen, water-based finish on the historic pine hardwood. A natural water-based finish brings out the color and texture of the wood while still provide a durable top coat that will protect the wood from heavy foot traffic in the years to come.

Beers Flooring is proud of the results. Not only did Annapolis Green save money by refinishing the hardwood floor, with proper maintenance, the floor will not need refinishing for another 20 or 30 years. Additionally, Beers Flooring was able to keep with Annapolis Green’s environment mission and deliver a happy customer simultaneously.
