How does the sand and finish process work?
One of our most frequently asked questions is, “How bad is the dust?” We want the clean up to be as minimal as possible which is why we offer our top quality dust containment system. Although, it does not completely eliminate the dust.
Now, it’s time to pick a stain. We have proudly used Minwax stain for years! Minwax offers a wide variety of colors but we also specialize in mixing custom stains to suit any style you are trying to achieve. With that being said, 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 are most attracted to. We find this makes the decision much easier and gives you a better idea of what the finished product will look like!
Once the staining process is complete, we will apply the first coat of polyurethane. We offer a couple of different finish options such as: water based and oil based polyurethane, along 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, where as, 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 and 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!
