Our Hardwood Floor Repair Specialists Offer Complete Hardwood Flooring Repair Services
Repairing your hardwood floors allows you to keep your favorite wood floors while remodeling. It also helps make it structurally sound and prevents more costly repairs or replacement later.
Our hardwood floor repair specialists work on homes and businesses throughout New Jersey.
We often find ourselves in older homes and commercial businesses, which often lack proper maintenance over the years, resulting in split, cracked, dented, warped, or cupped planks. Ignored water and moisture damage buckle the flooring.
And, of course, we service new properties to repair gouges, scratches, burns, and other abuses unwittingly imposed on the surface.
If your hardwood floor is damaged, you don’t have to rip it out and replace it – hardwood can last longer than you think if maintained and repaired correctly.
Below are some of the repair services we offer:
Repairing splits, cracks, and holes in hardwood floors
In time, wood floors may develop cracks, splits, holes, or dents on their surface.
Our hardwood repair specialists can easily fix these issues on-site. To fill in the damaged area, we use epoxy-based filler.
We then stain, blend, and match the hardwood color to its existing shade. Following that, we buff and finish with a polyurethane coat based on water or oil.
Repairing gaps in planks
Wood floors expand and contract, which is the most common cause of gaps.
Changes in humidity and temperature can cause this. Over time, a water leak or improper cleaning can lead to gaps between the floorboards.
To treat gaps between your planks, we must determine your home’s humidity and moisture levels.
We then use coarse grit to sand down your floors.
Having sanded the floors once, we fill all the gaps with standard filler. When the filler has dried, we move on to the next step.
We then sand the floors two more times to achieve a flat and seamless surface. As a final step, we stain the floors and apply two coats of polyurethane to finish them.
Repairing cupped hardwood flooring
In a cupped wood floor, the edges of the boards rise while the center of the boards remains flat.
Having more water at the bottom of a plank than at the top can cause cupping. The first step in fixing this problem is to balance your home’s moisture and humidity levels.
We then give your flooring enough time to return to its natural state. After the floor stabilizes, we will sand and refinish it professionally, eliminating the evidence that the floor ever cupped.
Repairing buckled planks
Poor installation of hardwood floors can cause buckling.
However, buckled planks are most often caused by extensive water damage. If water is trapped between the subfloor and planks for a prolonged period, it will drastically move the wood.
If there is no more room for it to move, it will buckle or pop up.
A buckled surface is probably the most complex and most expensive issue to fix.
First, we must remove the damaged floorboards altogether from the subfloor. Next, we need to run a fan over the moist areas for 24 hours or until the floors are completely dry.
When the new floor planks are dry, we will replace the buckled ones with new planks of the same species and grade. After installing the new hardwood planks, we will refinish and sand them.
Repairing damaged floorboards
Although wood floorboards are generally durable, they can still be scratched accidentally.
Many factors can damage hardwood flooring, including pets, water, children, furniture, and more. Although natural wear and tear is inevitable over the years, it does not mean you have to replace the entire floor.
Rest assured that our team of professionals will restore your floorboards to their former glory.
