If you have antique flooring, we can acquire matching boards from historic properties for the closest possible match to your preexisting flooring.
When we refinish your boards, you can request to have the color of your flooring lightened or darkened. This staining process can breathe new life into your old hardwood. Due to the added material costs, this can result in an increase in the final cost of the refinishing project.
