Repair or replace?

You may be wondering if you can repair your damaged wood flooring or if it would be better (or necessary) to replace it altogether. This is a common question many homeowners have when they contact us about hardwood floor restoration.

Your free consultation includes a careful on-site inspection from our trained hardwood flooring professionals. We will provide an assessment of your flooring options so you can make an informed decision based on your needs and budget.

Even if you think replacing the floor is your only option, let us take a look. Many times our wood floor experts can preserve part of the floor and repair the damaged area, saving you money. Our wood floor restoration team can return old, worn-out, and damaged floors to their original beauty. Just wait until you see the results!

What is the hardwood flooring repair & restoration process?

Wood floor repair and restoration takes skill. That’s just what our team of Kansas City hardwood floor professionals delivers. While each wood floor restoration job is unique, here are the typical steps.

1. Replacement of Damaged Planks

Many times a damaged wood floor can be saved without having to replace the entire space. We can replace only the damaged area by “lacing in” new wood planks for a seamless look. 

2. Dustless Sanding & Minor Repairs

For the repaired area to blend into the rest of the flooring, the entire area is sanded and refinished for a flawless match.

At SVB Wood Floors, we use a state-of-the-art dustless sanding method. Our Bona Atomic Dust Containment System® (DCS) doesn’t give dust a chance. Before it can enter your home, its strong vacuum sucks dust away into an airtight hose that carries it out to our containment system outside your home.

This is so much better than traditional wood floor sanding which leaves dust throughout your home even when the room is “sealed off.” There’s no need to vacate your home, no dust in your ductwork to blow around later, and best of all, no dust to ruin the perfect finish on your newly restored hardwood floor. Dustless sanding is fast, easy, and convenient.

Once the floors are sanded, we examine them closely to find and fix any additional blemishes. We fill any cracks, gouges, or nail holes left over after sanding.

3. Staining & Refinishing

After sanding, your wood floors are ready for the stain color you choose. We can match your original color or create something entirely new to refresh your home.

The staining and refinishing stage is the most exciting part of the restoration process. This is when you get to see your previously dull and damaged wood floor come back to life! 

We start by applying the stain. After it’s dry, we finish the floor with three coats of our environmentally safe, durable, and fast-drying top coat to protect your newly restored floor from wear and tear. We screen, buff, and vacuum between refinishing coats for the absolute best possible results.

With proper care, your gorgeous new finish will last for years to come.

"Great company to work with! Very impressed with every aspect of the process. It was nice to be able to stay in our home while the work was being done. Dust was not an issue at all, nor were fumes. Most importantly, the floors look amazing!”
- Brandi, Lee's Summit, MO
I love the new resurfaced floors. There is very little dust. The sales personnel and resurfacing crew were extremely professional. I am very happy to refer this company and will use them in the future. My floors look great!!! Thank you SVB Floors.
- Mavis Hutchings
My home is nearly 60 years old and still has the original oak floors. SVB recently refinished the floor in living room and hallway, and now it looks brand new -- way better than I ever expected. There was no dust (as advertised) and no mess left behind. All the employees that I met are very nice people -- professional and friendly. Thanks, SVB. You are a class act!
- Elaine Schendt
SVB refinished our floors during a kitchen/hearth remodel. Our contractor hired SVB to do the work. Their crew was extremely polite, friendly and absolutely left no mess. So quick and efficient. Floors look great and I wouldn't call anyone else but them for future work. Amazing crew!
- Kristen G
SVB provided excellent, highly qualified "craftsmen" who added hardwoods to my existing flooring. Each team performed and completed the match with amazing results! The color match was 99% true, the cleanliness & dust free treatment left my wife & I speechless, and the installed fine oak floor added value to our home.
- Lee Valentine
Our experience with SVB Wood Floors was outstanding every step of the way. Whether speaking on the phone or interacting in person, every employee was very professional. We are very pleased with the timeliness and quality of their work. SVB refinished our kitchen and dining room floors, but if I didn't know better I would think the wood had been replaced! It looks that much better. I wish we had done this years ago!
- Kim Rath
We had floors installed and some refinished a couple weeks ago. I just want you all to know this is the best experience we have had in any kind of contract work we have ever had done. Your team was so professional and considerate at every phase of this project. We were so impressed beginning with Eric’s estimate to the last coat applied.
