Hardwood Floor Restoration, Tustin, CA | Wood Floor Sanding, Refinishing & Minor Repairs

Let the wood flooring specialists at Gäte Hardwood Floors bring back the beauty of your badly worn, aged, or outdated hardwood floors or stairs. Typically, the natural appeal of wood floors increases as they age. However, if neglected for too long, a wood floor can quickly start to look dull, dingy, and damaged. Once a wood floor’s finish wears away, foot traffic, scratches, and stains are no longer superficial; rather, they harm the wood itself. The more extensive the damage, the greater amount of work that will be needed to fix it.

Since 2004, our team has restored antique wood floors, solid wood floors, and engineered wood flooring systems. In every case, we looked for the least invasive and most cost-effective way to remove the damage and restore the floor’s natural beauty. In some cases, boards may need to be replaced and cracks sealed. If sanding is required, we keep it to a minimum using a virtually dustless process followed by hard-plating, which gets floors as smooth and flat as possible. Then we clean the floors and apply the applicable color treatments and protective finishes. Since the raw wood is exposed during a complete restoration, this is the ideal opportunity to change your wood floor’s appearance if you wish to do so. Today, for example, there are many more color stain options to choose from as well as new technologies that allow you to get more variation in the tones of your wood. Call today to schedule a free on-site consultation for hardwood floor sanding, refinishing, and restoration services in Tustin.

We love this company. After calling 4 companies who specialized in solid wood flooring, Gate was the ONLY one who were willing to help us strip off the awful residue of Orange Glo Floor Polish. They used an industrial floor stripper and professional brushes. After 4 attempts, it was obvious we needed to sand and refinish our floors. (Word to the wise: NEVER use Orange Glo!)

Gate Hardwood refinished our floors beyond our expectations! They are gorgeous! Better than the original! Brian and his team were professional, hard working, and showed a work ethic rarely seen today. They cleaned up the work area every day, too. They covered our cabinets with protective plastic and informed us of the process along the way. I highly recommend Gate Hardwood Flooring!w
