Atlas Tile has fast become the number one choice in the Hartford, CT area when hardwood floors need refinishing. Hardwood Floors
are growing in popularity every day mainly because they are available in such a wide variety of types and styles. However, just as every kind of flooring does, hardwoods exhibit wear and lose their luster due to foot traffic in high heels; soccer cleats; spills; direct sunlight; moving heavy furniture and even pets. All of these normal events will wear down the finish in time and cause damage that detracts from its appearance. That's why Atlas Tile is proud to offer hardwood refinishing services in the Wethersfield, West Hartford, Rocky Hill and Newington, CT areas.
When hardwood floors are first installed, and once again when they are refinished, the wood is generally covered with a hard urethane coat to protect it against liquid spills, abrasive dirt and grime and wear time caused by foot traffic. Very small flakes of aluminum oxide are included in this finish to increase its protection and prevent damage from UV light. This protective material also adds strength to the coating and increases the luster of the wood as well.
Sand, mud and dirt carried inside on shoes, or pet paws, act pretty much like sandpaper, scraping away the hardwoods protective coating. Once removed, soil and water can reach down into the wood, causing swelling, warping and some degree of discoloration. UV radiation from direct sunlight will bleach out the rich colors from hardwood, and make it look dull and generally unattractive.
Hardwood sanding and refinishing done in your home by Atlas Tile professionals can effectively undo all this damage that was done over time and restore your hardwood flooring to its original beauty. This hardwood refinishing process can also extend the life of your floor by many years and the process is considerably less costly than replacing your entire floor.
