Uncovering Hardwoods From Other Types of Flooring

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.
