The Re-coat

Hardwood Flooring in ct – Recoating is a simple process in most cases, and it’s far less expensive than refinishing. A re-coat involves roughing up the existing coat, either by lightly sanding—or “screening”—the existing finish. Once the floor is prepped and all specks of dust are removed, a new coat of finish is laid down over the existing roughed-up coat and allowed to dry for 24 hours.

It’s important to note that some floors can’t be recoated. If any of the existing finish has completely worn down to the wood, a refinish will be needed to prevent uneven coloring. If certain substances like wax or oil soap have been used to maintain the floors, there’s a good chance that a new finish won’t stick, even if steps are taken to try to remove the residue of the substance. Floors that have been pre-finished in the factory and coated with Teflon or Scotchguard for added durability also can’t be recoated, because it’s impossible to abrade these coatings.
