Sanding & refinishing
What does Sanding & Refinishing mean?
Hardwood floors affect the value of a home therefore, it is important to keep them maintained. Hardwood floor refinishing offers a cost effective way to restore your wood floors.
Wood flooring is one of the most difficult types of flooring to work on. Unlike carpet or tiles, each piece of wood has its unique characteristics and can respond slightly differently to water, humidity, and general wear. That is why we recommend that you seek help from professionals when it comes to the installation, repair, and maintenance of your hardwood flooring. Being in the flooring industry for so long, we take pride in offering a wide array of services that you need to keep your wooden flooring in tip-top shape. Floor installation, sanding, finishing, restoration and repair – you name it, we offer it.

A Complete Guide to Hardwood Flooring
DMV Home Design presents a complete guide to finding the best hardwood flooring for your home.
Whether you’re laying a wood floor in a new house or replacing one that’s damaged beyond repair, there are dozens of species to pick from, including trusty domestics, such as oak and maple, and intriguing exotics, such as tamarind and acacia. You also have a choice of widths—be it rustic wide planks or traditional narrow strips—and stain colors, which allows you to tailor your floors to your house’s style and decor.
And thanks to modern adhesives, a wide variety of species are available as “engineered” boards. Made from a stable sandwich of veneers, rather than solid stock, engineered floors can go places where it wasn’t practical to install wood before: over radiant-floor heating systems and concrete and in basements.
Hear from our clients
If we could give DMV HOME DESIGN more than 5 stars we would. Had the opportunity to work with Joey Garzon and his crew, Juan, Roman and Kevin. These guys know what the word service is. Joey came to assess the work, provided us with an estimate (the same day) on refinishing (sand, stain, and finish) our floors, baseboards and shoe molding. We were able to schedule the start date within a week (could had done it earlier but we had delays with our General contractor). We had to rescheduled our appointment due to more delays on our contractor, but Joey was very accommodating and understanding. Joey diligently addressed all our concerns and patiently awaited on us to make decisions (shoe molding or no shoe molding ). Overall, we are very pleased with the job done and professionalism of Joey and his crew. Our floors look brand new and the guys did exactly what he had asked. Thank you, DMV HOME DESIGN for the outstanding customer service!
Sale manager explained the process and options for refinishing the floors. Within days his crew came out and proceeded to make sure that the rooms and closets that were not done, sealed from the dust created from sanding. When done they cleaned up and left the rooms spotless. These floors have not been touched in over 50 years and now they look beautiful.
Zack was delightful to work with. He had good ideas, was responsive, easy to work with.
Definitely recommend and will refer friends family to him!
Most of the time it will take us 3 to 4 days to refinish an average floor. But there are so many variables we really cannot give you a firm answer before seeing your floor in person. With an average project, the first day we remove the existing finish and sand down to the bare wood. The second day we finish sanding and apply the first coat. Then the last coats are applied on either the third or fourth day, depending on the finish system you choose. But that is without repairs, stairs or staining. Each of these will add more time to the project.
Obviously, the larger your home or more complicated the layouts, the longer it will take. Small hallways and lots of closets and stairs can add a lot of time to the project no matter the square footage size. If you want to change up the color of your floor with a stain, it will take an extra day too.
Once we have taken a look at your floor and chatted about the options you want, we will be able to provide a very accurate timeframe for how long your project will take.
