Solutions to Common Wood Floor Repairs on Vancouver Island, BC.

We have worked on all styles and species of wood floors over the past 20 years.

Water Damage

Water and moisture can destroy a wood floor and should be repaired as soon as possible.  Leaking dishwashers, fridges, windows, and roofing are some of the more common wood floor repair problems we have solved in Nanaimo and the mid island areas of Vancouver island over the years.

Wear and Tear

Wood Floors are designed to be walked on and over the years it is inevitable that they will become scratched, dented, or faded.  We always recommend solid or engineered flooring for our installations as these wood floors can be repaired and refinished unlike laminate and carpet which need to be replaced.


Permanent stains can be caused by pets or poor floor maintenance. The solution is to sand and refinish with a new stain or finish effect.

Owner Operated

Vancouver Island Floor Finishing is an owner-operated small business that is involved in all steps of wood floor repairs. Work with the owner from the initial quoting stage through the final finish!

What is the process?

All our services start with an initial estimate, which includes the materials and steps that will be used, along with the total cost.  If clients wish to make a booking, we will agree on a suitable time period for the work to be completed. We generally work on one job at a time, this way we can complete the wood floor contract as efficiently as possible to allow you to re enter the home or business as soon as possible.  All terms of service and payment details are included in the estimate.

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 is 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.
