We recently refinished the hardwood floors in a home located in the Wedgewood neighborhood of Seattle. This home, which has been a rental for some years, is getting some serious TLC before being put on the market to sell. Some of the house had exposed hardwood and some of the hardwoods were covered up by vinyl flooring in the dining room and an overdose of tile around the fireplace. Once the vinyl and extra tiles were removed we were able to come in and successfully refinish the floors. One would never know that these floors were once covered in vinyl, tile and glue. We think the results are pretty awesome and will add tremendous value to this home. The floors were a combo of Fir and Hemlock and we used a Swedish Finish on them. See below for before and after shots.
We just finished working on the hardwood floors in another house that will soon be put on the market in the Maple Leaf neighborhood of Seattle. We refinished the entire house with the exception of the bathroom and kitchen. The main level of the house had Oak hardwoods, the second level was a mix of red and white Oak and the stairs were Fir. The owners decided to go with the traditional Swedish Finish. The finished floors are absolutely beautiful and add so much polish and flow to the house. See below for a glimpse of some of the before and after shots. More photos can be seen on our gallery of work page near the end of the gallery.
