Elegant Floors is certified in installation of all types of hardwood floors through the
National Wood Flooring Association.More than 40 manufacturers recommend using N.W.F.A. certified professionals.We schedule a time to come to your home for the initial consultation, and if you
are planning on installing a new hardwood floor we will bring samples for you to choose from.If you are matching a existing floor we will determine which product will work best with your
existing hardwood floor.Proper sub floor preparation is vital for any hardwood floor installation. A home is only as good as it's foundation and a floor is only as good as the sub floor.The sub floor
should be dry, flat, and up to industry standards prior to installing the floor.We will do a jobsite evaluation prior to having your new flooring delivered, and follow the guidelines for installing
hardwood floors set forth by the National Wood Flooring Association.
Refinishing hardwood floors is a great way to restore existing hardwood floors that have experienced wear over the years. Floor refinishing can also be a good time to change the color of your existing hardwood floors.We adhere to the guidelines set forth by the National Wood Flooring Association when sanding and finishing hardwood floors.We also employ the most advanced sanding equipment available in our industry.We use the Avac26 dust containment system from American Sanders as well as the Bona portable DC system as standard procedure. With either system the homeowners can be assured that every effort has been taken to contain the dust as much as possible. Our sanding process is a multiple step procedure that follows the N.W.F.A. sand and finish guidelines.The final sanding on the floors is with the buffer and we prepare the floor to apply the stain or finish coat of the customers choice and proceed to apply the remaining finish coats to the floors.We buff, vacuum, and tack the hardwood floors between each finish coat to ensure the smoothest floor possible.
Choosing the right stain color for your home is a important decision. It is necessary to make sure your new hardwood flooring will compliment your home's decor,or match the existing hardwood floors in your home.Elegant Floors recommends Bona Drifast stains.Bona Drifast stains are formulated to seal, color,and provide durability when used on unfinished hardwood floors.You can choose from one of the stain color choices Bona offers or we can custom mix a color just for you hardwood floors.We will apply 4-5 colors to your floor for you to choose from this way you can see the colors on multiple boards and with the decor of your home.Once the stain color is chosen we will apply the stain to the floors and proceed to apply 3-4 coats of eco-friendly waterborne urethane.
We also offer cleaning and recoating of existing hardwood floors.We start with a two step cleaning process which includes the application of two cleaners.Then we proceed to buff the floors and apply the appropriate finish coat to the floors.This is usually a one or two day process and the furniture can be replaced in 48hrs. Recoating a hardwood floor is a maintenance procedure and should be done when the floor begins to show signs of wear.
