The whole world has heard of hardwood floor refinishing however hardwood floor recoating is a much lesser known but, in most cases, a better renovation strategy and always a more cost effective one.
Flat Rock hardwood floor recoating is also known as screen and recoating, which describes the process of the finish being lightly abraded with a mesh screen and then floor being recoated with a new layer of protective finish.
While screen and recoating is a routine process to protect the hardwood floors in gyms and sports facilities, it can also be a great choice for Flat Rock homeowners or businesses whose floors simply need a new layer of finish! Over time the top protective layer of finish will be worn down leaving the wood more vulnerable to spills and scratches. Our screen and recoating procedure restores that protective finish layer. By maintaining the top layer of finish, you will keep your floors looking better and lasting longer.
For starters, there is a 50%, or more, cost advantage to Flat Rock hardwood floor recoating vs Flat Rock hardwood floor refinishing. Because the process consists of screen and recoating, the quality of the finished product is more durable and of similar quality to refinishing. In summary, below are the advantages of recoating vs refinishing:
