Estimate the cost of the project based on options chosen during the sales consultation
Deposit & Schedule
When you choose us for your project, we will require a small deposit, then we’ll get your project on the schedule
Top coat Abrasion
We will clean and buff the floor in order to abrade the top coat of finish. This allows the new coat to adhere properly.
Our experts will lay down a fresh coat of finish, filling in surface blemishes and protecting your floor for years to come.
WILL THE BUFFING PROCESS CREATE A LOT OF DUST?
Less than you would think. With our high-powered vacuum systems we can create a dust-less experience.
Our teams will always take dust mitigation steps on every project.
WHAT TYPE OF FINISH SHOULD I CHOOSE?
That depends on a lot of factors. The main determinants are your desired finish base, sheen level, and desired cure timeframe.
We use either Water-based finishes or Oil-based finishes. Most floors are finished with a Water-based finish, but Oil-based can be appropriate.
Water and Oil-based finishes differ in two ways; hardness and aged color. Water-based finishes tend to be harder than oil-based. Water-based finishes do not affect the color of the floor over time. Oil-based finishes yellow over time, which can impact the color of your floor depending on its original color.
Sheen levels range from Matte (no sheen) to High Gloss (very high sheen). We recommend using Satin (low sheen). Semi-Gloss (medium sheen) can be used but it isn’t as popular.
Desired Cure Timeframe
Curing timeframes vary widely from finish type to finish type. For example, UV Water-based finishes cure instantly, while regular Water-based finishes take up to 4 days to fully cure.
UV cured finish is cured the second we run our high-powered UV lights over it. This allows you to get back on your floors and back to normal life sooner.
Normal Water-based finish takes 1 day to cure 75%, allowing you to resume normal traffic. It takes additional 3 days to cure the rest of the way. Rugs and furniture can be moved back at this point. All furniture not on rugs should have felt pads applied.
Oil-based finish takes roughly 30 days to fully cure. Need we say more.
