My gallery of photos show a history of my business since 1983. Many of these homes have been refinished as most homeowners want to perform a lite-remodel every 15 years to spruce up or change the design of their home. With hardwood floors it is to remove dents, scratches and finish wear along with a change in color . Once the refinish is complete a worn floor is brought back to its original new looking state. That is one of the reasons why homeowners buy wood floors as over time they are a good investment. If properly installed and maintained they can last the life of the home.
