Flooring Restoration

With Top Industry Professionals in Livonia / Farmington Hills


Even if you take great care of your hardwood floors, cleaning and polishing them regularly, years of wear and tear take their toll. Or, perhaps you’ve moved recently into an older home with hardwood floors that need more than just dusting and polishing. Either way - it’s time to refinish or restore your floors.

Flooring restoration is a lengthy and laborious process involving sanding, patching, staining and top coating. Even if you’re an accomplished DIY-er, this is not your average weekend project and is best left to the professionals. Ways to mess up your floors lurk at every step of the project.

Common Mistakes Include Uneven Sanding


A drum sander, the most common tool used for this part of refinishing floors, can be rented from most hardware stores. This large piece of equipment weighs a ton and creates a lot of noise and dust. For someone with no experience, wrangling this machine is extremely difficult and can result in scraping away too many layers of wood in spots, leaving sander-shaped impressions across your hardwood floor. They also don’t do a great job in corners and other hard to reach areas. Odd angles and uneven sanding can lead to gouges in your floor. Footprints Floors contractors are highly skilled and have more powerful, higher-quality equipment to sand floors beautifully and evenly.

Common Mistakes Include Dust


That never-ending nemesis, dust. Sanding floors creates a lot of dust particles that have to be meticulously cleaned before proceeding to next steps. If you fail to remove all those little dust specks before staining and finishing your floors, those teeny tiny bits of wood or lacquer will get trapped under the finish, ruining the smooth look you’re after. Footprints Floors contractors have the eye for detail and dedication you need to make sure your floors are dust free before anything else is applied.

Common Mistakes Include Bad Application of Stain and/or Finish


Footprints Floors has access to a wider range of products for stains and finishes than you’ll find at your local hardware store. Not only more color and style options, but higher quality formulas that last longer, dry faster and frankly look better. In addition to using high quality products on your floors, Footprints Floors contractors are trained in the best techniques for applying stains and finishes. A common problem seen in DIY flooring restoration is peeling finish. Other rookie mistakes include applying too many layers of finish without letting it dry in between applications. Instead of the sleek, shiny floors of your dreams, poorly finished floors will quickly look dull, dirty and potentially damaged.

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 in Livonia / Farmington Hills 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.

What Our Customers Say

Just got my father’s bathroom floor redone and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful with all of my questions, from the estimate all the way to the end (and there was zero pressure in the sale, which I really appreciated.) Everyone was so friendly, accommodating, and they had really good price points. The tile job itself is immaculate, the way it’s cut so perfectly around the toilet and pipes, those guys did 10/10 work. And the place was left spotless! Will definitely use again.

Great overall experience! Jason and Brandon did an amazing job refinishing the hardwood floors in my home! I couldn’t be happier with the results, the floors are beautiful!

I found Footprints Floors on Angi’s. They came to my home to estimate the job, which was small. They said they would fit it in between other jobs they had going. It took two weeks to do so, but they did! The Sales, Operations and Tiler employees were respectful of my time, questions and concerns. The work was good and I would recommend the company to others looking for competent, professional tile work.

WOOD FLOORS I’ve wanted for years!!!! 🤩 Footprints Floors were experts at transforming our home. This was an extensive project with the entirely main level getting wood flooring. Rooms had carpet removed while other rooms had to be sanded, carpet on stairs was removed and everything was stained one color. Turned out more perfectly than I could have imagined!! Absolute BEST in the industry. They checked on the progress regularly to ensure complete satisfaction. In order to keep cost competitive, we bought and painted moldings, caulked and painted stairs. Pictures show before and after. We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! (Rustic Beige stain).

We recently finished our basement which included a living room, guest room and bathroom and needed new flooring. The salesperson, Billy, came by for a quote and after listening to our vision provided us with several options on how to make it happen. He answered all of our questions and provided recommendations and an estimate that day and was able to get us on the schedule the following week. The crew that installed our LVP/Floating Floor was punctual, professional, and did a fantastic job. I'd highly recommend Footprints Floors and will use them again.

Billy, Adnan, and their team were not only skilled professionals but also courteous and polite throughout the entire process, making the renovation experience smooth and stress-free. Their attention to detail and prompt communication made me feel confident in their abilities, and the transformation they brought to my home in just one month was truly remarkable.
