Wood Floor Refinishing, Laguna Beach, CA

Gäte Hardwood Floors applies the industry’s best practices for wood floor refinishing in Laguna Beach. Our refinishing service involves a virtually dust-free sanding process to remove the old finish, stains, and scratches. We then use hard plating to get the floors as flat and smooth as possible. Once sanded and hard plated, the floors are thoroughly cleaned in preparation for the application of the color treatments and finishes. Laguna Beach clients may opt to have us restore the floor’s original look, or we can change the color, tone, sheen, and texture to give the floors a completely new appearance. To ensure that we capture the right color and look, we can make a few test samples for you to consider. Call today to learn more. Our hardwood floor refinishing service in Laguna Beach features commercial-grade finishes and is always performed by our own highly skilled staff.

Hardwood Flooring Installation, Laguna Beach, California

Our company is committed to providing our valued Laguna Beach clients with the highest quality wood flooring possible for their budgets. As a part of this commitment, we carefully observe the best practices for every aspect of our hardwood floor installation process. Before we begin, we make sure that the subfloor is properly sealed, completely level, and free of any floor covering. If there are any issues with the subfloor that could affect the appearance or long-term performance of your wood floor, we will want to have them completely resolved before we start installation. Once the subfloor is properly prepped, we have the wood delivered and give it several days to acclimate to the environment. After it has had time to acclimate, the wood floor is installed, sanded, and finished. As part of our service, we’ll explain how to care for your new hardwood floors and recommend a cleaning and maintenance schedule. Contact us today if you are interested in new wood floor installation in Laguna Beach. We’ll work closely with you every step of the way.


Brian and Ben did the most amazing job refinishing our Laguna Beach Cottage original wood floors to a glowing finish. The bedroom floor had been almost black and they sanded it down so that it is a natural honey color. Our living room floor is restored to a light walnut. I thought it would be a trying process but they were so efficient, clean and punctual that after 3 days we had beautifully restored floors.
