Refinished 60 Year Old Pine Floor

Plus other Refinish Examples


The top 4 pictures in this series are of an old pine floor that we re-finished and brought back to life.   Usually if the floor hasn’t been re-sanded several times, and unless it has just been destroyed, we can do a complete refinish and bring a floor back to “almost new” condition.   We normally don’t fill the cracks on floors like these, because usually old pine floors have quite a bit of “movement” which is just a characteristic of old floors.  Filling the cracks would be counter productive as in a year or two, the filler would work out of the cracks as the boards move, causing an undesirable look.  Normally it is just best to leave the cracks the way they are, as these are a common feature of old pine floors, as you can see by these pictures.

This is a 50 year old Oak floor, with before and after Photos.   The finish was nearly completely worn off of this old floor, but the floor was in perfect shape under dirt and grime which had worked into the very top layer of wood.   This was a dramatic difference.

The pictures below are of an approximately 25 year old, 3 inch  #1 Red Oak Floor that had seen better days.   After Refinishing and staining with “Nutmeg” color stain, the floor looks brand new.
