Refinishing Old Hardwood Floor?

hard wood floor refinishing Add comments

Hey I’m looking to refinish my room, it is all old old hardwood flooring rough, with 2 inch cracks inbetween the boards in places. What I want to do is smooth in all the cracks, sand it down and then add some clearcoat or something to give it the hardwood floor shine. I am not completely sure on the steps, but my plan is to use a belt sander to smooth everything out as best I can, and then add clearcoat. This would not fix the cracks though, how would you go about accomplishing this? Thanks.

The best thing you could do is to put some 4×8 sheets of sub-floor down, then cover it with some prefinished wood. There is many manufacturers to choose from. You are in for a major disappointment reworking the old floor. Or cover it with carpet.

    We did our own floors but didn’t have the 2" cracks you have. You might want to consult a book from the library or Home Depot dude.
    You may need to sharpen alot of carpentry skills or just buy carpet….
