    Johnny Boy puts in and finishes new wood floors, and refinishes and repairs current wood floors. A new installation can derive from 1 to 5 days of approximately  800 to 2,400 square feet.  An ordinary refinish job of approximately 800 to 1,500 square feet) usually takes 3 to 4 days to complete.

    The essentials engageded 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. This is an important step that some companies may skip but rest assured Johnny Boy Hardwood Floor Refinishing Arlington VA will always perform.

    When it involves top nailed or surface-nailed floors, each nail is set manually just before the application of filler, just 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 eliminate 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 just like sanding, but using a milder abrasive screen in place of sand paper.

    At this stage, the floor is vacuumed, and the first coat of finish is put on. The following coats of finish are then applied, often with an additional screening between coats. 

    Johnny Boy Hardwood Floor Refinishing Arlington VA always strives to perform the proper procedures for you flooring installation and refinishing projects.

    According to WikiTravel, Arlington is part of the original "ten miles square" which the US Constitution dedicated as Washington DC, the nation's capital. In the 1840's, due to issues relating to congressional representation, slavery, and the economy, the US Congress returned the part of Washington south of the Potomac river to Virginia; most of this land today forms Arlington County. Most travelers to Arlington will visit both Washington DC and Arlington, and both cities are seamlessly linked together by the Metro system.

    Arlington has maintained a healthy balance of urban and suburban life through its self-proclaimed "Arlington Way" of policy making. A large number of residents are associated with grassroots urban and political planning processes. Whatever your reason in coming to Arlington, you'll find the area a friendly and convenient place to explore and visit.

      If you want to avoid the crowds, consider visiting between November and March. One of the most busy times to visit the Washington area is during the Cherry Blossom Festivity in early April.
