If you're moving into a home with older hardwood floors, you may find some scratches or wear on them that you want to fix.

Benefits Of Restoring Hardwood Floors


Over time, hardwood floors can tarnish and show their age. Replacing hardwood floors can be expensive, and your antique floors can become worth a lot if you take care of them. In that case, refinishing may be a better alternative to replacing your hardwood altogether.

Cost-Effective

Even if you hire professionals like Footprints Floors, refinishing hardwood floors typically ends up costing quite a bit less than installing new hardwood.

Increased Home Value

Solid wood floors are greatly appealing to potential buyers, and taking care of your floors with antique floor refinishing near you is a great way to preserve and add value to your home.

Increased Safety

Damaged floors aren't just an eyesore, they can also bring some big safety concerns. Splinters in the feet, for example, aren't comfortable and could get infected. Antique floors can also be uneven, which may lead to tripping or falls.

Ward Off Pests

Did you know the craters, small holes and crevices that can appear in hardwood floors are a bug's best friend? Termites, ants and decay can wreak havoc on your floors, but regularly refinishing them can seal off bugs and other issues.

Should I Replace or Refinish
My Hardwood Flooring?

When considering an antique hardwood flooring restoration, you may wonder if it's worth the hassle or just better to replace them with new floors altogether.

The decision is ultimately yours, and you can't really go wrong with either choice. Refinishing your floors, however, doesn't have to be the messy process many make it out to be. It also can be a more budget friendly option for those looking to give their existing flooring a sparking new finish.

What To Consider Before Restoring Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floor restoration can be a great way to elevate the look of your home. However, it shouldn't be attempted or done without adequate research and consideration. If you're thinking about going this route, consider the following factors:

Time


Refinishing your hardwood floors isn't a one-day project. After sanding your floors, you will also need to seal them. This sealer will need to be set for at least 24 hours before it's safe to put furniture back into the room. You might not be able to complete it in a day, but refinishing your floors is a doable weekend project if you plan it right.

Equipment


A professional grade sander will be needed for your refinishing project. It's probably not an item you'll want to buy just for a one-time use. Many hardware stores rent these out, or you can contact professionals like those at Footprints Floors to do all the work and have the equipment you need.

Cost


The cost of refinishing hardwood is dependent on a few factors, including the size of the room and sealer needed. For the average cost of a wood floor to be refinished by professionals, it's always best to get a quote to better understand your project.

What Our Customers Say

Chuck knew exactly what to do for my damaged hardwood floors.He was, above all, professional, knowledgeable, and made my options easy to choose with very low costs! I will definitely use Footprints Floor again as well as highly recommend them to all my friends and colleagues..

We are thrilled with our relationship with Footprints Floors. Both Chuck William the ower, and Kyle, his installer, have exceeded our expectations. We started with a small project to replace our master bath floor due to a toilet leak. The leak was missed by the original installer who did a new shower and floor and returned to address the leak with a new wax ring. Thanks to Chuck and Kyle they discovered a faulty sewer flange which was repaired by Stephen's Plumbing. Both agreed, if missed, we could have been looking at a new floor and posible family room ceiling. Happy with the initial project we gave Footprints new issues to solve: a leaking hall bath shower and defective broken tiles in our family room and kitchen, with no spare tiles. Chuck did the caulking and grouting to seal the hall bath leaks, and cleaned the harvested tile, and Kyle laid the new foyer flooring while harvestimg the extra tiles for the repairs. The results are outstanding. We had initially contacted another vendor for the project who ghosted us (possible the job was to small for their taste). Our win!

I’ve NEVER had more of an amazing experience than with Footprints Floors, particularly with Mr. Williams. He helped me cut through the multitude of choices that I often find overwhelming with ease to come up with a choice that enhanced the beauty of my home in a way I never thought possible. Thank you, Charles. My home is beautiful, my wife is happy and I have a new appreciation for customer service!

Chuck and team listened to our vision to update what was a very uneven and thin-- 3" concrete slab floor in our basement. Its a nearly 100yo converted root cellar. He gave us options and contingency plans-- all things were considered! He wasn't quite familiar with the finished look we requested, but he did a lot of research and pulled it off! The install team was great. We love the result.

I cannot say enough about Chuck and staff. We have had a-lot of contractors do work for us over the years and i have to say that footprints have by far exceeded all our expectations. They did an amazing job on our wood floor refinishing and really stand behind their work! Chuck is very professional and courteous unlike most contractors we have dealt with in the past. You can hire them without concern. They truly are worth it!

We recently had the pleasure of working with Chuck and Kyle from Footprint Flooring of the Western suburbs. They were professional, fast, and their work was of high quality. Chuck came by to look at our floors and spent a good amount of time explaining everything in detail that was needed to repair our floors and made sure all of our questions were answered. I was so pleased with the outcome of our flooring. We had our LVP floor repaired and it truly looks amazing. I would highly recommend Footprint Flooring to anyone looking to install or repair their floors. I called around to other flooring companies and I am so glad we chose FootPrints. I got the best vibe from them and now I know why. I can honestly say we are so happy and satisfied with our floors and would use them again.
Caterina DeBenny 04/27/24 — google
Chuck and his team were very friendly and thorough. Spent a lot of time answering my questions and explaining things for my peace of mind. The job was done right the first time! Pricing was comparable to other companies in the area, didn’t have to pay more for top-quality work. Thanks, Chuck!

I would highly recommend Footprints if you are looking for flooring work. In our instance we had frozen water pipes that burst and damaged a 4x5 swath of our hardwood flooring. Footprints came out promptly to evaluate the damage and proposed it’s solution. We actually thought we would have to replace a lot more of the floor area than we ended up replacing. Footprints was able to lace the new wood into the existing hardwood and when the work was finished, I could not tell any difference. They matched it perfectly. Footprints was extremely competent, polite and neat. I also found their rate to be very reasonable especially given the high quality of the work. I found the owner of the company dusting in our powder room with a duster after the work was complete! I highly recommend Footprints Flooring.

Chuck is an outstanding business man very polite and charged a fair price. Kyle did an outstanding job on my bathroom floor and I would definitely hire these guys again!!!
Diane Boyd 04/21/23 — google
Footprints floors did an excellent job restoring my hardwood floors. The floors were in exceptionally bad condition prior to their restoration. They restored my hardwood floors to an almost new state. The hardwood floors are now absolutely gorgeous! I cannot recommend them highly enough for all work they did at a fair price. Thank you!

Very personable and thoughtful. Crew cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. Chuck new what he was doing. Delivered on all of his promises. Exceeded our expectations.
Karen Schmiege 03/16/23 — google
Chuck was a pleasure to work with. Very reasonably priced and started work right away. Gave recommendations based on our wants and did not try to upsell us on unnecessary work. Will definitely be using them again to refinish our hardwood in the future.
Andy Blechschmidt 02/21/23 — google
Chuck and his team were great to work with! I always felt like I was in good hands, which doesn't happen often. Chuck discussed different options for flooring and he even steered me away from some options that would not have been cost effective for me. In a day where making a buck by any means necessary is the norm, I found this rare and totally refreshing! I would definitely use Footprints Floors again.

Chuck and his team were phenomenal! We ripped out old carpet and had installed new vinyl plank flooring… The first night, we noticed a HUGE difference in our kids breathing overnight. Our kids had been coughing a lot when they were in their rooms. We weren’t sure if replacing the carpet would make a difference, but the change was immediate. Our whole family is feeling much better since the carpet was replaced with vinyl. Chuck went above & beyond, and we couldn’t be happier. We will definitely hire Footprints again in the future. Can’t recommend them highly enough!
Max Lyons 11/5/22 — google
Chuck did an amazing job in our house! His team refinished our hardwood. They also changed the kitchen tile to hardwood. He is expert in his work, very responsive, and on time. He cared about our house and even gave us a floor protection to use for other contractors. He went to 6 different stores to find the stain color we were looking for. His team was very nice as well. I would highly recommend him to anyone, who is looking for a floor contractor.
Kamelia afshin nia 09/3/22 — google
Chuck and his team refinished our hardwood. Chuck is very nice, knowledgeable and cares about the quality of his job. They were on time and delivered the project according to the initial schedule he provided us. The quality of the job was amazing and the communication was great. We did a few other projects in our house with other contractors, and Chuck was by far the best one. Alex (his crew lead) was a great and nice person and provided great suggestions during the project. Chuck went above and beyond to help us pick the right stain colors. I highly recommend him and will definitely work with him if I have any other projects in the future.
Ali Ghassemi 09/3/22 — google
FootPrints Floors provided excellent service from start to finish. I was well informed as what to expect with the total process. I’m extremely happy with my refinished floors. I would definitely recommend FootPrints Floors!
Kevin Knox 05/2/22 — google
I was very satisfied with the job. There was a small issue that I discovered after the job was completed and I reached out to Chuck who was very responsive and brought someone to caulk around my shower window the very next day. I would definitely recommend this company!
