Hardwood Flooring Repair & Restoration in Kansas City
Bring Your Worn or Damaged Wood Floors Back to Life
Life happens on wood floors, and life sometimes leaves marks. Wood flooring can also sustain damage from water leaks, fires, chemicals, and pets. The good news is that hardwood floors can often be repaired and restored to their former glory.
If you have a wood floor that’s seen better days, contact SVB Wood Floors in Kansas City. We can bring your old, worn and tired wood floor back to life with our hardwood floor restoration and repair techniques.

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.
