REVIVING HARDWOOD ELEGANCE IN ELK GROVE VILLAGE, ILLINOIS

REVIVING HARDWOOD ELEGANCE IN ELK GROVE VILLAGE, ILLINOIS

Hardwood Refinishing Service had the pleasure of revitalizing a charming single-story house in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, with warm and friendly Polish homeowners. This project was a testament to the enduring quality of hardwood floors, as the original floors had not seen refinishing since the house was purchased two decades ago.

Despite the passage of time – 20 years, the hardwood floors in this home remained in surprisingly good condition; they simply needed a fresh, rejuvenating touch. Our team carefully assessed the floors and identified areas requiring special attention, such as a few cracked wood planks in the kitchen area, which we replaced.

STRIKING STAIRS REFINISHING IN GENEVA, ILLINOIS

STRIKING STAIRS REFINISHING IN GENEVA, ILLINOIS

Our collaboration with Redesign Floors led us to a project in beautiful Geneva, Illinois, where we had the opportunity to transform a stairway that had encountered a unique challenge. The previous finish applied to the stairs had become problematic, heating up and causing sandpaper to adhere during the refinishing process. This necessitated extra effort and materials to restore the stairs to their former glory.

Our team tackled the project with precision and dedication. After meticulously removing the old varnish, we applied a golden oak stain that breathed new life into the stairs. This choice not only created a warm and inviting ambiance but also harmonized seamlessly with the existing floors, stair banisters, and posts.
