Installing hardwood flooring is a great decision, and it can last for just about, well, forever… as long as it’s maintained properly. When it is, it becomes the easiest surface in the house to clean- and the most aesthetically appealing. But what if it’s time to refinish or even replace your hardwood flooring? Do you know the signs?


Know the Signs


Are there any scratches, etches, or loose floor boards in your flooring? If the boards are warped, split, or sagging, it could be time for a refinishing or a replacement. It’s best to let the professionals decide before you do anything that isn’t necessary.
