With over 40 years of experience in the industry, we have developed processes that ensure a perfect result for every flooring project.
This is a 2 or 3 step sanding depending on your intention to stain the final product. We start with a rough grit to ensure a level surface, and gradually move to finer grits to eliminate imperfections. We typically complete the sanding of 1,000 square feet per day, depending on the complexity of the layout.
The sealant, or protective layer, is applied on the same day the sanding occurred, to ensure that the newly sanded floor is protected from damage and debris during the renovation process. The sealant dry time is near-immediate.
Polishing is done after the application of the sealant, and after every coat of varnish applied to the floor. Typically first done the day after the sealant is applied, the polishing step gives your floor a premium look and feel.
Varnishing your floor will give it a coloured tone. Depending on the chosen colour, 2 to 3 coats will be required, each of which takes between 3-24 hours to dry, depending on if the varnish is water-based or oil-based.
- Remove Baseboards & Quarter rounds
These fixtures usually serve to hide the inevitable imperfections of where your floor meets your wall. As such, they need to be reapplied after the installation of your floors has been completed. If desired, we will remove these so as to preserve their reusability upon floor installation completion.
- Removal of Old Floor
While the necessity of this step varies from case to case, we do offer this service if needed. We’ll remove your old floor with care to preserve the quality of your subfloor to the best of our ability.
- Subfloor Preparation
This necessity of this step also varies from case to case. We’ll evaluate the quality of your subfloor and advise you accordingly. If necessary, we provide plywood installation services for $1.75/sq.ft.
We also apply tar paper, or wax paper, depending on the environment’s potential for humidity.
- Installation & Reapplication of Baseboards + Quarter Rounds
We start the installation in the hallways, and progress into the main rooms to ensure proper alignment. We also reapply the baseboards & quarter rounds removed in the 1st step.
