5 Images of Rough Looking Hardwood Floors [and their transformations!]

Posted by Aaron Schaalma on Dec 24, 2014

Here are 5 examples of rough looking hardwood floors and their transformations!

#1 Maple Floor

This Maple floor had a lot of discoloration and had cupping due to the floor not being properly taken care of over time. By refinishing this floor we where able to take care of the discoloration by using a different finish that isn’t UV sensitive. We were also able to take care of the cupping and give the customer the knowledge to keep the floor flat for years to come.

#2 Red Oak Floor

This Red Oak floor had carpet glued down to it and you sometimes never know what the floor will look like until its been refinished. This floor turned out fantastic and the customer was thrilled with how well the floor turned out.

#3 White Oak Floor

This White Oak floor had remnants of old carpet pad which required me to take an extra sanding step to remove all the pad off of the floor. Sanding the floor reveled a stunning wood floor that you generally don’t see in older homes around Oshkosh (most old floors are Maple because that’s what was most available in the area).

#4 Hardwood Steps

These set of steps had carpet on them and had a wear pattern from all the traffic going up and down in the same area. The carpet was removed and the steps where refinished and finished with Rubio Monocoat giving them a consistent even color.

#5 Maple Floor

This Maple floor had scratches in it that where too deep to remove, so it didn’t pay to have it buffed and re-coated. Instead, we refinished it and applied two coats of a commercial finish to make it more durable.
