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.
