The team at Seer Flooring has seen it all when it comes to hardwood flooring. We can inspect the current flooring and let you know if the wood is worth saving and can be saved. Sometimes the wear and tear looks much worse than it is and a good sanding and refinishing will bring a formerly beautiful floor back into its glory. Sometimes something that looks like a real hardwood floor may in fact be an impostor and not worth saving.

We have also encountered homes where certain sections of the floor are too damaged to be repaired but the wood is special. Some older homes were built with pumpkin or heart pine which are both very rare today. You do have options. One solution that may work If your home has separate areas and you’d like to keep the vintage wood flooring in as much of the home as possible, is to consider salvaging what can be salvaged and repairing the areas that need it from the other room or rooms.
