01

Floor Sanding

Using powerful belt sanders and edge sanders we remove old coatings, scratches, and gouges.  Professional floor sanders remove the thin top layer of your hardwood flooring.

Floor Polishing

Fine floor polishing smooths out the surface after coarse sanding and is critical for a professional finish. Polishing prepares the wood grain ready for coating.

Floor Coating

The final step when resurfacing a wood floor is applying the finish.  Stains and floor finishes can be customised to achieve your desired look before being applied to wood flooring.

20 years experience repairing, restoring and resurfacing hardwood floors.

Wood floor resurfacing is the cornerstone of any skilled wood floor repairs company. Without the right skills, experience, and equipment a simple board repair can result in irreversible damage to your floors. Many steps that require skills and experience to complete are involved in the resurfacing process. Renting floor sanding equipment and beginning a DIY resurfacing or refinishing project often leads to problems along the way. Before engaging someone who will be using domestic rental machines or renting them yourself, read our DIY tips. We use the latest dust free floor sanding machinery and offer professional advice to homeowners interested in restoring their hardwood floors.

Years Experience

How do we resurface wood floors?

Hardwood floor resurfacing is a more involved process than refinishing.  Resurfacing may included repairs or leveling out high spots on floors before staining, coating, and refinishing. Wood floor resurfacing is generally required on older wood floors.

The difference between hardwood resurfacing and refinishing?

Many older homes in Nanaimo and other areas of Vancouver Island were originally constructed with fir and oak wood flooring. These wood floors are now showing their age and the solution is resurfacing or refinishing. While people use the terms resurfacing and refinishing interchangeably, they do have slightly different meanings.
What’s the Difference?
Refinishing is the process of sanding the top layer of an existing wood floor then applying a new stain or clear coating system. Refinishing is generally only recommended for newer solid or engineered wood flooring where the current finish has worn out.
Resurfacing hardwood floors may involve removing old floorboards, rough sanding down uneven boards, replacing or reinforcing floorboards with new nails. The wood floor resurfacing process is more time-consuming and requires professional experience.

Can All floors be resurfaced?

Floor sanding and resurfacing 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 resurface small areas to match an existing floor finish will generally result in a patchwork effect. It is best to sand and resurface all areas of the floor for an even look throughout the home.  Resurfacing one room is possible in certain situations. For example, where a wall or door divides the areas.  Contacting an expert wood floor contractor for advice will result in a professionally resurfaced hardwood floor.  Laminate and vinyl floors will generally need to be replaced when damaged or worn out.

What resurfacing products do we recommend?

Vancouver Island Floor Finishing recommends and uses water-based based polyurethane for our wood floor resurfacing projects. Modern water-based finishes are 100% polyurethane and provide wear resistance that is better or as good as solvent based products – without the fumes. For instance, floors in commercial premises are routinely coated with water-based finishes as there is minimal disturbance to the commercial operation.  In these situations having good wear resistance is as necessary as a low odor finish. This is why we recommend commercial grade water-based floor finishes.
