Floorboard Replacement - When and Why?
There is no doubt that real wood floors are one of the most durable, hard-wearing, solid, and long-lasting flooring options available on the market. People love real wood floors not only for their attractiveness and the variety of styles and design you can enjoy, but mostly because of their strength, sturdiness, and durability that last for decades.
However, in some cases, even a high-quality wooden floor could become a subject of serious issues. While the majority of the common wood floor issues like stains, minor water damage, dents, gaps, scratches, other surface imperfections, etc are easily fixed with the help of sanding and refinishing, in some cases the damage or imperfection is way too serious to be removed by the sanding machine only. In cases like broken floorboards, serious moisture damage, deep dents, and more, you wouldn't be a way to sand the issue away and enjoy your floor in perfect condition. Therefore, a professional floorboard replacement service is available whenever you want to bring your floor back to its initial glory, durability, quality, and beauty.
A professional floorboard replacement is a very beneficial service that allows you to enjoy your floor fixed by reliable and experienced specialists for just a fraction of the cost of actually lifting and replacing the whole floor with a new one. Therefore, just because your floor is struggling with damage in a certain area, it does not mean you have to get rid of it and purchase a new floor. Professional floorboard replacement is a spot repair treatment that involves the damaged areas of the floor, the damaged and distressed floorboards more specifically. The treatment will not affect the structural integrity of your floor, but it can definitely improve it once the new and strong floorboards are installed. The service is also dedicated to visually improving the floor, often making it look like a new one.

What to Expect?
Normally, a floorboard replacement service causes minimal disruption and hassle. However, keep in mind that each project is different and some may require more work, respectively, longer to be finished and until perfect results are achieved. Hiring our professional wood floor renovation team means you will have your floor and its condition first inspected. In case the damages could be fixed any other way, our specialists will discuss your options and the opportunities you have, they will tell you if floorboard replacement is not necessary.
However, if after the assessment of the floor's condition it is still necessary to have some floorboards replaced, then our professional will continue with lifting the damaged floorboards and removing them. Depending on the type of installation of the floor as well as other factors, this step may take longer or be done within an hour or less. Now, once the damaged floorboards are lifted, it is time to replace them with new floorboards.
Our specialists do their best in order to find the perfect match. Normally, reclaimed wood materials will be chosen, since this type of wood has also changed over time and is affected by wear and use just like your floor. This means that once the new floorboards are installed, the floor's surface will look uniform and even. Next, sanding the surface and application of a finish are required as final touches and for achieving the best results.
