Wood Restoration Services
Restoration is a process by which time-worn wood is returned to its natural state of beauty. It differs from refinishing in that the finish is not completely removed.
Kitchen / Bathroom Cabinets
First, we mask off the entire work area. We use a water-based cleanser and degreaser to thoroughly remove all layers of dirt and grime that have accumulated over the years. We then abrade the cabinet surfaces (this includes both the fronts and backs of cabinet doors, the drawers, and the ‘styles’ or ‘boxes’ to which the doors attach) with 400-grit sandpaper, smoothing down worn, rough areas to allow for optimum adhesion of the new finish. We return to the areas of greater distress and sand them more aggressively to rid them of damage and wear. Then we create a custom color especially for your kitchen or bathroom and apply it to all surfaces of the wood. This repairs the damaged wood and rejuvenates it, bringing back all of its natural beauty. Now, the finishing process begins. We apply multiple coats of heavy-duty UV-protected waterborne polyurethane, sanding between coats with 600-grit sandpaper to maximize adhesion and smoothness. The end-result is a gorgeous kitchen or bathroom which will maintain this newly revitalized and dazzling appearance for many, many years.
This is usually a 1 to 2-day process.
Restoration of floors is appropriate when there is only moderate damage to the wood. ‘Screen and coat’ is a great money- and time-saving alternative to complete floor sanding and a great option if you’re wanting to return your wood to its original brightness or to ‘fix it up’ before selling your home. Again, we start by cleaning the wood with a cleanser/degreaser to remove all dirt and contaminants right down to the grain. Then we use an abrasive screen to do a sanding which gets out all surface scratches and scuffs. After the floor is thoroughly vacuumed and damp-mopped to get rid of dust, we apply two coats of heavy-duty and longlasting UV-protected waterborne polyurethane floor finish to restore your floor to its original luster while sealing and protecting it from future wear and tear. This is the same finish we use in our complete refinishing process.
This is usually a 1-day process.
