Wood Floor Refinishing FAQs
While nothing in the world of sanding is 100% dust free... doing great
work and containing the dust is a high priority.
Is the work REALLY completed in 1-2 days?
Yes it is... REALLY. On average we can complete 800 sf a day from start
to finish. Sand, Seal and 2-3 coats of polyurethane.
Is it necessary to hire a professional?
Sanding and refinishing wood floors is a specialized trade. The sanding
equipment used is powerful and designed to produce professional results
quickly. Our machines are not rented from Home Depot nor would
expect those machines to compare. It takes years to develop the skills to
not only use these machines properly, but also develop the ability to
recognize what a good job looks like. This is what we do day in and day
How do you know if the floor should be sanded?
Most floors we encounter need to be sanded to look their best. A floor
should be sanded if: there are gouges, dents, impressions in the wood,
sun fading, large areas of finish are missing, dirt has penetrated into the
wood or a color change is requested.
Are we fully licensed and insured?
Do we need to leave the house for Premier to
perform the work?
99% of the time our clients do not need to leave the house. Much will
depend on how much floor space is being refinished and in which parts of
the house. The only time a floor is off limits to foot traffic is when a stain
is drying (typically 1-2 hours) or when the topcoats are drying (typically
Oil based vs Water based polyurethane?
With today's technology there are many more advantages to using a high
quality water based finish instead of oil based. Due to changes in
environmental laws all companies that manufacture polyurethanes need to
change their formulas to conform. Therefore, the very durable oil based
finishes that were produced many years ago are not the same any more.
All of the R&D has been and will continue to go into water based
High quality water based polyurethanes offer durability that is equal to or
superior to oil based, dry faster, have very little odor, do not amber over
time and are safer for the environment. On the other hand, oil based
finishes take much longer to dry and create more downtime, have very
strong odors that force customers to leave the house, take on an amber
hue over time. All of our water based finishes are of high quality and
made by the leading companies in the business such as Bona and Basic
Coatings. We still use oil modified stains which provide a deeper, richer
color to the floor vs their water based counterparts.
Does the furniture need to be removed from the
floor and for how long?
Yes, and it needs to stay off for only 2 days from the time the finish is
