Sanding and Refinishing
Many of the houses in Central NY have floors which date back to the construction of the house. They usually vary between red oak, white oak, beech, cherry, and maple. Some of the older houses dating back to the 1800's also contain species such as ash, birch, and yellow pine. While the wood species vary between houses, most have one common trait; the natural beauty of the wood can usually be brought back whether the floor has been down for 20 years or 120 years. A lot of floors may look like they have seen their day, however many times with a sanding and refinishing, the floors come back with a new life. By sanding the wood down to its original raw, natural state, it opens up possibilities for homeowners to choose a natural finish look as well as a variety of different colors.
