Customer's Feedback on our floor refinishing services

Manny and the team completed a complete resanding and refinishing of the house and stairs and did a great job tying into new flooring. Work was exceptional and done on time as planned.
Marc Martel
Manny and his team went above and beyond to deliver us incredible service in refinishing our floors. The refinishing process proved to be a bit challenging given the particular species of wood already installed, but Manny was sure to outline and test all of the different options with us to ensure that we ended up with floors that we absolutely adore! We greatly appreciated his quick and consistent communication as first time homebuyers eager to get settled in to our new condo, and his work and professionalism exceeded our expectations.
International Flooring sanded and refinished our early 1900s’ oak floors with walnut inlay. Our old yellowish floors are absolutely gorgeous now! The staff worked quickly and left our place spotless; and was friendly and so easy to work alongside. I would highly recommend this company.

FAQ - Hardwood floor refinishing

Can I sand and refinish my floor?

Is refinishing floors more expensive than replacing them?

When is it time to refinish my floor?

When your floor begins to look worn and dull, this is a good sign it needs to be refinished. Here is a quick test you can do to figure out the level of urgency for your floor treatment. Pour a couple of tablespoons of water onto the hardwood floor: if the water creates droplets, your floor is probably dirty or tarnished by wear and tear. Use a specialized product to clean it. If after a few minutes the water slowly soaks into your floor, it is partially worn and will need recoating or refinishing soon, but for now, just take a little extra care of it. On the other hand, if the water soaks right in, it’s time to refinish your floor and have it varnished.
