Wilderness Ranch is a place with wonderful views, few people and tranquil sounds. This house had seen its share of dirt, salt and all the other seasonal affects a floor can go through. The floor was beaten down for over 10 years and it showed. The soft grain of the wood was completely missing and gone, the finish was stripped off from constant use and the floor didn’t even look like red oak anymore. The homeowner wanted the floor to have beauty again and show character her and her family could enjoy.
Before pictures of the red oak hardwood floor:
The floor was sanded as follows:
- 40 grit belt sander 30 degree angle to flatten
- 40 grit straight belt sand
- 60 grit edger
- 60 grit belt sand
- trowel fill
- 80 grit trio
- 80 grit edger
- 100 grit trio
- 100 grit edger
- 4 finish coats
When the homeowners came back from vacation they absolutely loved the floor and could not believe the transformation the red oak wood floor went under during the hardwood floor refinish.
