Hardwood Floor Installation
Hardwood Flooring by Johnny Boy installs and finishes new wood floors, and repairs and refinishes existing wood floors. A new installation can take from 1 to 5 days (about 1 day for 300 square feet, an average-sized room). An average refinish job (3 rooms or approximately 400 to 500 square feet) usually takes 3 to 4 days to complete.
The basics involved in a refinishing job are as follows:
The floor is rough-sanded to remove the old finish, and a filler which approximates the general color of the wood is toweled over the entire surface of the floor.
In the case of top nailed or surface-nailed floors, each nail is set by hand prior to the application of filler, in order to ensure that each nail-hole will accept filler.
Once the filler is dry, the floor is sanded again with a finer sand paper to remove any excess filler and smooth out rough-sanding marks.
Next, a very fine sand paper is used for the final sanding pass, to remove any sanding marks left by previous passes.
The floor is then screened, a process similar to sanding, but using a milder abrasive screen instead of sand paper.
At this stage, the floor is vacuumed, and the first coat of finish is applied. The successive coats of finish are then applied, often with an additional screening between coats.
