Hardwood Floor Refinishing Services, Coto De Caza, California

Gäte Hardwood Floors offers affordable refinishing services in Coto De Caza to revive the look and condition for all types of wood floors and stairs. Our wood floor refinishing service starts with a virtually dust-free sanding process, followed by hard-plating. Hard-plating is a step often skipped by other wood floor refinishers, but we insist on this step because it allows us to get the flattest and smoothest floors possible. We then thoroughly clean the floors before commencing with any color treatments and finishes. Our color treatments can give your wood a new color, more variation in the tones, or a lighter or darker hue. Following the color staining process, we can seal your floor with your choice of oil-based or water-based protective finishes. Water-based finishes often come in satin, semi-gloss, and high gloss and are typically long-lasting. Oil-based finishes tend to penetrate the wood and require more frequent application than water-based finishes. While they require more maintenance, they have become a very popular choice as they leave floors with a more natural look and feel. Call today to learn more about our hardwood floor refinishing services in Coto De Caza, California.

We offer solutions for budgets of all sizes and help each client consider the many factors that need to be taken into account when choosing a hardwood floor. During a consultation, we’ll want to know, for example, will the floor will be subject to high traffic; are you more interested in aesthetics or practicality; and how much of an investment do you want to put into your floors. We’ll also take measurements, assess your subfloor, and evaluate your indoor conditions, such as temperature changes and humidity.

We offer wood flooring in all of the most popular patterns, including traditional strip plank, random-width plank, wide-width plank, parquet, Herringbone, and chevron.

Brian’s company helped us select and then installed about 3,000 sf of wide plank hardwood flooring in another house in 2011. Everything was thorough and professional. For the current house we were limited to narrow plank oak flooring to match existing and original flooring in a historically designated house built in the 1920s. They did an excellent job installing and matching the color to the existing floors. Again very professional and responsive in scheduling and installing.
