Why do people bother with hardwood floor refinishing? Of course cost is a factor, but the reasons for refinishing instead of replacing a whole floor go far beyond saving money.
Hardwood flooring is part of the character of a home and a reflection of the owners' values and personality, so replacing or resurfacing hardwood floors carries deeper meaning than simply getting a new floor.
That deeper meaning is also why it's important that you learn as much as you can before you begin any flooring project.
