Posted February 18, 201 6

Best of Houzz 2016

For the Chinese, it may be the year of the red monkey, but for Torontonians who are remodeling or building new homes, you may choose to call it the year of the hardwood floor. Make 2016 special by inaugurating a new creation or by restoring one that is already full of character and only in need of some TLC.

Give Existing Floors a New Life

In a city with four distinct seasons, existing boards take a regular beating. Winter is likely the harshest of them all. It is easy to track in salty ice from outside, and as the indoor heat melts and dries it,the result is often spots and discoloration. Children and pets are the worst offenders, but sometimes the damage was already done by previous tenants.

Refinishing is one of the most popular treatments for restoring worn-down wood flooring in Toronto. During the process, squeaks and noises can be investigated and fixed. Panels are sanded, typically in a process going from coarse to fine grinding, revealing a fresh surface that looks like new. From that point, a sealer is applied, adding a luster that residents and visitors alike will enjoy. For floors that do not have problems with spots or deep scratches, a simpler buffing and recoating treatment can work wonders. It can be done in a day but still result in a like new finish.

Showroom Quality Professional Floor Installations

A premium quality new floor installation requires attention to structural details during the setup process. Fine points like leveling panels and properly securing to the subfloor require skill and time to produce the best results. When done right, the final product is not only level, but noise and squeak-free. A job well done includes finishing touches, such as trim work, along with a full walkthrough test. A professional installation can literally last a lifetime or more.

There are a number of contractors offering to install and restore wood flooring in Toronto. The best will readily provide access to their portfolio and offer a guarantee. This will give you the peace of mind that your project is in the right hands.
