Refinish Your Old Wood Floors

Trusted Antique Hardwood Floor Restoration
From Footprints Floors

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. Even though this natural patina can have a beautiful look, it's still important to keep your hardwood looking good and well-maintained. A great way to do so is through floor refinishing.

Antique hardwood floor refinishing near you in Reading / Lancaster doesn't have to be difficult. Although you can do it yourself, hiring professional restoration experts from Footprints Floors is a great way to ensure your timeless floors are taken care of and restored to their original glory.

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

Doug and his professional team of floor refinishers did a beautiful job on my living room and dining room floors. I’m happy to recommend them and would use them again.
Laura M. 06/29/22 — Thumbtack
I'd spent over a month working on my floors myself before finally calling in the pros at Footprint Floors. I had a quote within 2 business days and due to a convenient opening in the schedule, my floor was done 7 days from when I first called! The price was average, not cheap, but affordable enough to do a third coat of finish and get some boards replaced. My only advice would be to request to inspect post-sanding and prior to finishing. I had one hole that missed getting filled and a stray shaving in a dark corner of a closet. It was all taken care of, but it would have been better to catch it before finishing.
James Seedorf 06/29/22 — google
Doug is very professional. The communication with him before, during and after the job was all very informative and decreased anxiety the project in our home. Very minimal dust was present after the sanding phase. The completed product is gorgeous and we couldn't be happier. Doug does a final inspection to ensure customer satisfaction. Follow up email after job was complete with care instructions was greatly appreciated!
Stephanie Mader 06/24/22 — google
Doug walked me through the entire process from start to finish. He thoughly explained each step along the way. He started on time and finished early. The floors look brand new. We could not be happier with the entire project. I would highly recommend Footprints Floor for any refinishing project that you undertake.

One of the best companies I have ever worked with. From the professionalism during the initial consultation through the final work - this was such a great experience. The quality of work was spectacular! I can’t recommend them enough. Choose them and you won’t be disappointed.

Doug came out to our house, free of charge, to look at our hardwood floors and give us advice on how best to improve them. Prior to him coming out, we spoke on the phone about our home's floors and what we wanted to do with them, and he quickly let me know that he was not the guy for us to hire (he didn't offer the service we were seeking). Because he wanted to help, however, he made the trip here just to give us more information about our floors and to give us advice on the best way to proceed. To be clear, he drove all the way to our house knowing that he would make no money for doing so, just to help out a couple of DIY'ers. He's an honest guy that clearly has kindness in his heart. I know this review is supposed to be about the business and not the owner's character, but I think the two go hand in hand. If we ever need any work done on our house, Doug at Footprints floors will be our first call.
Matt Chalupa 05/2/22 — google
Doug at Footprints Floors is responsive and easy to work with. He will help you solve your flooring issues. The workers were efficient and skilled. My floors look phenomenal. You can trust Footprints Floors.
The RHR Editors 04/26/22 — google
Doug and the team were great from start to finish. From my first inquiry, we were able to scheduled an in-person walk through, discuss flooring needs, and receive the estimate with a very quick turn around. Doug got us scheduled within 2 weeks and the project took place over a couple of days. The pine floors in our home were very dark, due to previous owners staining and re-staining over the years. Footprints Flooring was able to do a dustless sand, which left very minimal mess, and restore our pine floors to their natural beauty! We had a few repairs to some of the boards, which came out great as well. Doug was very helpful in deciding staining options/finishes. Ultimately he assisted in our decision to leave the pine floors natural in color and do multiple coats of oil finish- and what a PERFECT decision that turned out to be. We love our floors- thank you Doug and team!

Doug has been a pleasure to work with. Great value for money. They did a fantastic job installing LVP flooring for Life Plasma's Reading PA center (8,000 sft.) on a tight timeline. They got it done ahead of the committed date, which is a rare occurrence these days. Strongly recommend Doug for commercial and residential flooring projects.
Nagesh R 04/17/22 — google
I highly recommend Footprints Floors. The service was very professional from the start of the project to finish. I am very pleased with the workmanship and give this a 5 star rating. Awesome project and would continue to use Footprints Floors. Thank You.
Trish Geyer 04/16/22 — google
Doug and his crew were great! We hired them to install flooring on the main level of our home and the upstairs hallway. They arrived on time, got to work and completed the job in 2 days. The crew cleaned up each day and their work is great. We are very happy with our new floors!
Marty Sane 04/4/22 — google
Working with Footprints has been such a breath of fresh air. Most contractors treat you like they’re doing you a favor just getting back to you, if they even get back to you at all. Not so with Footprints! Doug provided timely quotes and expert technical advice throughout the entire process of having our pantry and powder room floors redone. Thank you Footprints for being prompt, professional, and precise. We only wish we had decided to do this sooner! Jason Birdsboro, PA

Jim Giovinco 02/20/22 — google
Used Footprints Floors to refinish wood floors that were 16 years old with many scratches. The final outcome, was exactly as promised and what we expected. Doug and his Team, were on time and kept us informed during the process. There was a minor issue along the way but Doug was professional and cared most that we were satisfied with the end results and quickly took corrective action. If looking for a Company, that puts Customer first, I would recommend them.
Jay Mathias 02/17/22 — google
Doug and his team completed our hardwood installation and we are very happy with the results. The work is high quality, and Doug was very responsive and professional during the entire process. We have more flooring projects to do in our house and Footprints Flooring Tri County will definitely be our first choice.
Wendy Gerhart 02/4/22 — google
Doug was very professional. His knowledge of wood flooring and refinishing was impressive yet he was humble enough to admit he didn't know it all when he was faced with a challenge at our house. His team of flooring contractors were on time every day and they did a great job of refinishing our floors. I couldn't have asked for anyone to communicate better throughout this whole process as he was always available through text or phone. He let me know when his team was showing up, he sent update pictures each day, and let me know when his team had left the house so I could go back over and lock up. I would recommend Footprints Floors to anyone looking to have their hardwood floors refinished.
Zach Martin 02/1/22 — google

We work with a LOT of vendors on various projects and frankly stumbled across FootPrint Floors by pure luck! They are going to be our vendor of choice going forward on all of our wood flooring needs. They were prompt, great attention to detail, went above and beyond to make our floors look amazing after 50 years of abuse by previous owners. They are not the cheapest, but you get your money's worth, trust me! send the time with their team talking about options and you wont be disappointed! Thank you for the great finish, our son's home looks amazing!!!
