Installation

Wood Flooring is your best choice when it comes to floor options and is an investment that adds value to your home. Likewise, hardwood floors are preferred over carpet flooring because they do not retain allergy causing pollen like carpets do. The investment in new wood flooring installation can last a life time. We are also certified installers by and proud members of the NWFA.

Restorations

If your wood floor has an uneven tone due to the sun, surface scratches or deeply ingrained gouges, warped or loose planks, we can quickly determine if the damaged floor board(s) need a simple repair or replacing. So Wakefield Hardwood Floors will come to you and provide you with a FREE no obligation estimate. We serve the Tampa Bay area including St. Petersburg and Clearwater.

Stains

If you decide to stain your floor rather than leave it natural, you’ll need to pick a tone; Staining your hardwood floor can add another dimension to the overall look of your floors. It’s important to remember that wood stains are different from wood finishes. Hardwood floor stains alter the color of the natural wood while adding additional highlights to the wood grain patterns in your floor. After a floor is properly stained, it will need a protective top coat to seal and protect the floor from daily life—this is where a wood finish is used. Bona’s Drifast Stain Collection offers a range of color options that you can use alone or with a combination of stains to create your own custom look. Some of the benefits the Bona Drifast Stain Collection include a 2 hour dry time for most colors, low odor, and easy touch-ups.

Buff & Recoat

 Hardwood Floors Need a Little TLC? A Re-Coat is Just the Thing 

 Your hardwood floors take a lot of abuse. High heels, shuffling feet, dog nails, cat claws, kids sliding across them in cardboard boxes—you name it, your floors have probably suffered it. Over time, even normal wear can leave your floors looking dull and in need of some serious love. 

Sure, you can have your floors sanded down and refinished, but it many cases, that would be like treating the common cold with invasive surgery. It’s a time-consuming and messy project, and it can get very expensive. At Wakefield Hardwood Floors, we’ve encountered countless clients who are fully prepared to have their worn-looking floors sanded and refinished. We’re always happy to tell them that there are far less-expensive and less-intrusive ways to restore their floor’s original luster. Enter the screen and re-coat, the hardwood floor industry’s best-kept secret and one of our specialties. 

What is a Screen & Re-coat? 

A screen and re-coat, also known as a buff and coat, is the process of laying down a topcoat of low-VOC, water-based polyurethane over the existing coat to make your floors glow again. But a new coat of polyurethane generally won’t stick to the existing coat without roughing it up a little, and that’s where the screen or buffer comes in. The screen is a piece of mesh material that’s embedded with abrasive particles, kind of like sandpaper, only far less aggressive. The screening process removes only a fraction of the existing topcoat—just enough to texture it so that the new polyurethane will bond to it strongly and seamlessly. 

When a Screen & Re-coat Isn’t a Viable Option 

Not every floor is a candidate for screening and re-coating. Any damage to the wood, such as scratches or dents from moving furniture, UV discoloration around rugs, or visible damage from pet accidents, can’t be erased by a screen and re-coat. Likewise, any spots where the polyurethane has worn away completely due to heavy traffic will appear slightly different from the rest of the floor after it’s re-coated, and you probably don’t want that. A screen and re-coat also is not an option for floors that have been finished with wax, an old technology often found in older homes and buildings. 

If you’ve ever used a wax-based cleaner like Mop & Glo or a silicon cleaner or oil soap on your floor, new polyurethane won’t bond to the old, no matter how much screening is performed. While most contractors don’t have the equipment, technology, or expertise to effectively identify and remove these types of impurities, Wakefield Hardwood Floors specializes in this and other types of problematic re-coats. In our 23 years of experience, we’ve seen it all. We have the cutting-edge testing protocol, state-of-the art equipment, and specialized skills to work with any hardwood floor. 

Screening and re-coating every three to five years or when your floors have lost their luster can save you a considerable amount of money in restoration costs over the lifetime of your floor. It can even increase the resale value of your home.
