Hardwood Floor Refinishing Services in Aliso Viejo, California
Observing a regular schedule of maintenance is vital to maintaining the look and condition of your hardwood floors over the long term. Neglecting to refinish a hardwood floor in a timely manner can cause the floor’s finish to wear down to the bare wood, leaving your wood vulnerable to scratches, stains, and panelization (where the wood starts to pull apart and separate). To provide your wood floors in Aliso Viejo with the best possible care, call Gäte Hardwood Floors. We are passionate about hardwood flooring and have decades of experience in wood floor cleaning, sanding, refinishing, and restoration. For lightly worn floors, we can clean your floors and apply a new coat of sealer or protective finish. For floors that are dull, dirty, and heavily worn from frequent foot traffic, we may recommend sanding and refinishing in order to restore your floors back to their original beauty. If needed, we can also perform repairs, such as board replacement and crack filling. Call today to schedule an appointment. We’ll provide you with honest, reliable advice about your hardwood floor maintenance or restoration needs in Aliso Viejo, and make sure that you understand every step of the process.

Should You Choose Solid or Engineered Hardwood Floors for Your Aliso Viejo Home or Business?
Hardwood flooring comes in two varieties: solid and engineered. Each is characterized by a different set of attributes. Solid hardwood floors are typically 3/4? of an inch thick and are constructed out of a single piece of wood. Solid hardwood flooring can be factory finished or finished on site, and it can be installed by being nailed to either a plywood or OSB (oriented strand board) subfloor. Since solid hardwood floors are constructed out of a single, solid piece of wood, they can be sanded down and refinished many times over their lifespan. If purchased unfinished, they also offer the greatest degree of customization, since they can be treated with color stains, reactive stains, or aniline dyes, and then coated with your choice of finish. In contrast, engineered wood floors are constructed by stacking multiple layers of wood plies on top of each other in opposing directions. The layers are bonded together under heat and pressure, and then a top layer or “wear” layer of real hardwood is added over the surface. Engineered wood flooring can be better than solid wood flooring in conditions where there are wide variations in temperature and moisture is an issue, since it’s less subject to expansion and contraction. If you’d like to learn more, call Gäte Hardwood Floors. We offer free onsite consultations for solid and engineered hardwood floor design, sales, and installation in Aliso Viejo, California.
We had Brian do a major sanding and refinishing job about a year ago. When we had moved into our house we had wood floors that were painted black by the previous owner. We were thinking about replacing them but Brian came in and discovered they were solid walnut, so he recommended sanding and refinishing them. They turned out great. At the time he recommended a light refinish in about a year, which he just completed. The floors had gotten some wear and the refinish made them look like new again. Brian does the work conscientiously, efficiently and with a lot of care. We would highly recommend him for a quality job.
