Q: What is solid wood?

A: Solid wood is milled from one piece of wood into boards that are three-quarters of an inch thick.

Q: What is engineered wood?

Wood flooring made from two or more laminations (layers) of wood glued together in a sandwich. The surface is real,  resandable wood -- not to be confused with plastic photo laminates.

Q: How many times can I sand my floor?

A: This depends on what kind of wood you have, and how bad the hardwood floor damage is that you are trying to remove. Have a professional inspect your wood floor to ensure no further damage is done.

Q: What should I do with my dull hardwood floors? 

A: Start by giving it a good cleaning. If the result is not satisfactory, you may be ready to have your wood floor screened and re-coated (the application of one or two coats of finish).

When will I need to sand and refinish my floor?

A: A hardwood floor that is properly maintained should never have to be sanded and refinished. Watch for the signs! When your wood flooring has lost its original shine, it may only need what the industry calls a screen and re-coat - the application of one or two coats of finish. This is much simpler than a sand and refinish if your wood floor has deep scratches, if your wood floor has dents, and areas where the dirt has been ground into the open grain of your floor.

Q: What wood makes the best floor?

A: Woods have a hardness factor and high traffic areas will be better served with harder woods. Aestetic factors also play a roll and often the final choice is a matter of taste.

Q: What about changing my floor color?

A: If you want to change the color of hardwood flooring, it is time to have your wood floor sanded and refinished.
