Hardwood floor refinishing?

hard wood floor refinishing Add comments

If I do a spot repair on my 12 year old oak floor (walnut stained, water based poly cover) with about 5% damage due to a dog and it looks bad, have I made it worse than if I just had the whole floor re-sanded in the first place? This approach would save me a lot of money and time if it works, but I don’t want to risk making it harder to fix later.

If you are going to do a spot repair you better make sure that the stain you use matches well with the already finished look. Re-sanding it and staining it will take allot of time but the final outcome will be like a new floor. If it has been re-sanded previously then make sure it is thick enough to sand again without causing permanent damage.
