    Refinishing wood flooring tips


    How often should I have my wooden floor refinished? How can I tell if it needs to be refinished? Does this only apply to hardwood floors?

    "It really all depend on how much wear and tear there is and whether you are happy with a more rustic look. There is not a wrong or right answer to this unless it is in a room where the floor is being exposed to water ie kicthen floors, bathrooms, or hallways then in those situation I would probably refinish every 1-2 years. Again do you like the rustic look? In that case 2-3 years."

    "This of course depends on existing finish, the amount of wear, and your expected visual quality of finish. At the minimum, prevention of damage to the timber is important, and the point of repair/replacement of the finish and seal is the point where the timber is exposed to moisture and more direct wear. You may consider this to be when noticeable areas of wear are seen on areas of heavy traffic. The type of finish depends on which timber you have. The answer depends on an inspection."

    "All depends on the wear, discolouration of the product. Their is no real time scale. Apples to any floor that is not a finished product. E.g laminate you don’t need to. Stained/varnished timer, yes."
