We Specialize in Refinishing Wood Floors




Refinishing Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors are a classic choice for any home, but they can be expensive to install from scratch. If you already have hardwood floors, you may be considering replacing them due to damage or wear and tear. However, refinishing your existing hardwood floors can be a much more cost-effective option. Not only will it save you the expense of buying new floors, but it can also breathe new life into your home. The process of refinishing hardwood floors involves sanding down the existing finish and applying a new one. This can be done by a professional wood floor installer or as a do-it-yourself project. If you choose to refinish your own floors, there are many instructional videos and articles available online. Refinishing your hardwood floors is a great way to save money and make your home look its best.

Bringing Wood Floors Back to Life

Existing hardwood floors can be refinished for a variety of reasons:

  • Wood floors are hidden under carpet
  • Wood floors may be dirty, scratched, dented
  • Wood floors may be refinished to achieve a new color scheme


Floor is rough sanded to remove the old finish that is on the surface. In the case of top nailed or surface nailed floors, each nail is set by hand prior to sanding. Then areas that are appropriate or requested by customer are filled. Filler must be allowed to dry. Once filler is dry the floor is sanded again with a finer sandpaper to remove any excess filler and to smooth out rough sanding marks. Next a very fine sandpaper is used for the final sanding. The floor is then ready for a stain color or the first coat of finish and left to dry. After drying the floor is buffed and thoroughly cleaned between each coat.

Taking Care of Your Hardwoods

Hardwood floors are a popular choice for many homeowners because of their beauty and durability. However, hardwood floors can be permanently damaged by water if they are not properly cared for. If you have water-damaged hardwood floors, it is important to take immediate action to repair the damage and prevent further damage from occurring. The first step is to remove any standing water from the floor using a wet/dry vacuum. Once the floor is dry, inspect the damage carefully. If the damage is extensive, you may need to replace some or all of the damaged boards. However, if the damage is limited to a small area, you may be able to repair it yourself. If you are not comfortable repairing the damage yourself, you can hire a professional wood floor installer to do the work for you. either way, taking care of water-damaged hardwood floors as soon as possible is essential to preventing further damage from occurring.

"About 6 years ago, we had the Boatright folks install our wood floor downstairs and on our steps. They did an amazing job with that installation, and turned it around in exactly the time they quoted to us. We absolutely love the floor they installed for us! But what I believe really sets them apart is last week when we called them to help us with a portion of our steps that had split due to heavy traffic. The Boatright team scheduled around our busy schedule to come out and repair it for us! They were more than willing to stand behind their work and make sure we were completely satisfied with their flooring. I continue to be impressed by the team at Boatright and would recommend that anyone looking for wood flooring should bring the Boatright team out for the work. The quality of work and the outstanding flooring they provided sets them apart."

“I used Boatright Hardwood Floors recently and was very very pleased. After dealing with other flooring companies who either didn't show up or were unable to finish jobs, I called Boatright. They exceeded my expectations on service and price. They offered up very helpful suggestions and went about work in an efficient and professional way. They did more than what I was expecting and completed the job in an extremely timely manner. They stuck to their price estimate that was well-within my budget and did not charge a penny more for their expert service. I will definitely use them again.”

"Having lived in central Austin, we'd heard about Boatright Floors for years, as all of our neighbors had their floors done by Boatright, and the consensus was that Boatright was *the* place for fine floors. We moved to northwest Austin and had a major remodel involving all new floors. Frankly, the Yelp reviews on Boatright had me concerned, but given that all of our neighbors used them, we checked out their store. Our experience with Boatright was fabulous. Their depth of knowledge about floors and flooring options was amazing. They assisted us in selecting the perfect floor. Their installation people were excellent.....really top notch people and a pleasure to be around. We have the utmost respect for Sam and Karen Boatright. Their service is personal and caring, and their products are unparalleled. For any one with a flooring need: go to Boatright's!"
