Renew & Restore
Over the years, the hardwood in your home has lost its shine and beauty, but that doesn’t mean you have to replace your floor. Whether is a total refinishing of your hardwood flooring, or just a simple recoating, we can restore your hardwood floors to make them look like they were just installed yesterday. By removing the old finish or “topcoat” and reapplying new layers of urethane coating, the long lost luster of your hardwood flooring is restored without the hassle or costs involved with installing new flooring.
We have a vacuum system that eliminates almost all the dust from the process.
Refinishing Hardwood Flooring Process
A stain in a color of your choice is applied to the wood and several coats of finish are applied. Each of these coats dries thoroughly and is lightly sanded before the next coat is applied. The end result is a floor that looks and feels as if it was installed yesterday. With solid hardwood floors, the refinishing process can be repeated multiple times and the floor will last for decades!

Renovating with Hardwood Floors
Hardwood flooring can be incorporated into your existing wood floors by matching the color or using a creative transition. Engineered hardwood flooring is an affordable choice for homeowners who expect to move in the next few years or want hardwood without the worry of water damaging it. If you plan to live in your home for a while and aren’t planning to move any time soon, solid wood flooring might be the better choice for you.
As the old saying goes, “measure twice and cut once.” It is crucial that your measurements are correct before choosing your hardwood flooring, getting it quoted and installed otherwise, there could be costly problems down the road.

Hardwood flooring comes in a variety of colours, stains & species; it is hypoallergenic, easy to clean and requires little maintenance. It is ideal for any décor – from traditional to modern– and can be installed in almost any environment. Some hardwood floors react more to humidity and water, so be aware of where in your home you’re installing your hardwood.

Practical Engineered Hardwood Flooring
When it comes to engineered hardwood flooring, the laminate base is made from composite wood and glue pressed together at high temperatures. A hardwood layer is then affixed to the surface. The result is an inexpensive floor that looks just like solid hardwood but is resistant to humidity and will look good for several years. If you want hardwood in your home but are concerned about it getting wet or hot or humid conditions, then engineered hardwood is the flooring for you.
Classic Solid Wood Flooring
On the other hand, solid wood flooring is relatively expensive to purchase and install but it will last for decades. The price and the durability depends on the wood chosen – birch, cherry and maple are three of the most commonly chosen types. Solid wood can be refinished a number of times to extend its useful life while still retaining its original beauty. It is somewhat susceptible to humidity. Choose this type of flooring if you plan to stay in your home for a decade or more.
Unique Exotic Hardwood Flooring
Imported from all around the globe, these woods such as: hickory, jatoba (Brazilian cherry), mahogany and tiger wood to name a few, are ideal for extreme environments such as the ones in Alberta because of their stability. They can be quite expensive, but if you plan on staying in your home for more than 10 years, then it’s a good investment. Exotic hardwood flooring also adds to a home's resale value.
