To Refinish or Replace Wood Floors? Which is Best?

Hardwood floors are a classic accompaniment to any décor style of home. With this timeless appearance comes a trade-off of their longevity. Over time, hardwood flooring can lose its lustre, crack or splinter if not properly maintained. This is when you need to ask yourself if it’s time to replace your hardwood floors or if they need to be refinished. Whilst it may be an easier, quick-fix to refinish hardwood flooring, it can often be a painstaking process to be done properly. Often the cheapest long-term solution is to replace wood floors. This is usually the most common option as they are elegantly finished straight from the box, and often the installation process is minimal.

Refinishing Hardwood Floors

While not as straightforward as a total replacement, a timber flooring refinish can be an easy way to breathe new life into dated timber flooring. The total timeline for a timber floor refinish can be anywhere from four to five days once completed. The process for timber flooring can also be highly involved; From sanding and stripping the existing sealant, varnish and staining, to allowing enough drying time in between the new coats of stain, sealant and varnish. The process often becomes tedious and too extensive to undertake for often the most experienced home renovator. A complete floor replacement is often the more favourable option.
