How does the sand and finish process work?
Do your old floors still have some life in them? We know how to bring out the beauty in your hardwood floors that are hiding under all those years.
We begin by sanding your old floors with our top-quality dust containment system, designed to keep the majority of dust out of your home and keep cleanup to a minimum.
Now, it’s time to pick a stain. We have proudly used Minwax stain for years because of its durability and a wide variety of colors. We also specialize in mixing custom stains to suit any style you are trying to achieve. And we know it’s hard to pick a stain without actually seeing how it will look on your hardwood, so we like to give our clients the option of letting us sand a few small areas and staining with the colors you think will work best in your home.
Once the staining process is complete, we will apply the first coat of polyurethane. We offer both water-based and oil-based polyurethane, along with the option of satin, semi-gloss, and high gloss finish. The majority of our work is finished with oil-based polyurethane. Although water-based is a great option also, we recommend oil-based because the durability is incomparable to water-based. For example, hardwood that has been coated with water-based polyurethane will likely need to be refinished in 3-5 years, whereas, a floor that has been coated with oil-based polyurethane can last up to 10 years or longer before needing to refinish. We typically apply three coats of polyurethane. Once the last coat has been applied, we recommend waiting at least 24 hours before entering the home.
We had nothing but a good experience through every step of the process! They were polite and very professional. They made 5 rooms of tired old wood floors look new again. Our realtor recommended them to us and now I will be recommending them as well. Its a joy getting prompt honest service these days!

Denton’s is simply the best! We recently purchased an older home and have had substantial renovation work done. We were spoiled by the service we received from Denton’s! They arrived on time, delivered exactly what they promised, finished on schedule, and were courteous & professional every step of the way. We couldn’t be happier with our new floors!
