There can be a world of difference when it comes to refinishing an area in need and replacing it entirely. One route could cost you big but offer a range of customization options and the other can save you money, if only on a temporary basis.
Let’s start with the flooring. Have you noticed wear and tear on the hardwood floors or tiles in the bathroom? These indicators could mean it’s time for a refinish. For hardwood floors, you’ll want to inspect the boards for scratches, dents, sun damage causing discoloration and water damage. If these seem manageable and mainly cosmetic, you could refinish the surface by hiring professionals to sand and apply a fresh coat of polyurethane.
