Wood Floor refinishing in Nanaimo, BC. Floor sanding, floor polishing, and coating wood flooring in the mid-Island areas of Vancouver Island, BC.
Solid and engineered wood floor refinishing.
Using powerful belt and edge sanders we remove old coatings, scratches, and gouges. Professional floor sanders remove the thin top layer of old floor coatings on hardwood flooring.
Fine floor polishing smooths out the surface after coarse sanding and is critical for a professional finish. Polishing prepares wood grain ready for floor finishes.
The final step when refinishing a wood floor is applying the finish coatings. Stains and floor finishes can be customised and then applied to achieve different looks on all wood flooring.

What Does A Wood floor Refinisher Do?
An experienced hardwood refinisher uses unique skills, machinery, and products to restore solid and engineered wood flooring.
The refinishing process begins with floor sanding the old coatings, scratches and gouges off using commercial belt sanders and a variety of coarse grit sanding belts. After the top layer has been removed, finer grit sanding belts are used to smooth and even out the surface. Other refinishing tools and equipment are used around edges and corners. Prior to staining or finishing, rotary polishers and fine sanding screens smooth out the surface area before vacuuming and coating.
We work with clients to achieve a floor finish that is visually appealing and adds value to their home or business. We use and recommend water based floor finishes for the look, durability and low VOC ratings that are safer for both the environment and home owners.

Can All floors be refinished?
Floor sanding and refinishing can only be applied to solid, engineered, and/or floating floors with at least 4mm of wood veneer on the surface. All types of wood floors and finishes will discolour and wear out over time. Any attempt to stain or refinish small areas to match an existing floor finish will generally result in a patchwork effect. It is best to sand and refinish all areas of the floor for an even look throughout the home. Refinishing one room is possible in certain situations, like where a wall or door divides the areas. Contacting an expert wood floor contractor for advice will result in a professionally refinished hardwood floor. Laminate and vinyl floors will generally need to be replaced when damaged or worn out.
What is sandless refinishing?
Sandless refinishing is a process that uses a chemical solution to strip existing surface coatings such as oil and solvent based floor finishes. After the old coatings have been removed, a tinted finish is applied. This process will not remove dents and gouges from floors like sanding and refinishing does and will not work on pre finished and engineered flooring. Vancouver Island Floor Finishing does not recommend or use this “Sandless” refinishing process.
