Service #3:

Los Angeles Hardwood Flooring Repairs ...for those damaged areas

A good percentage of the houses in Los Angeles we work in have damage that need repairing. It could be from pet urine or overwatered pot plants that have stained the floor boards black, walls being removed etc... and now there are sections of flooring missing or chipped, gouged, cupped sections or any other damage.

We can fix all of these issues.

Whatever repairs are needed, we have years of experience and all the tools and skills needed. We can replace damaged sections and seamlessly blend them into the floor so they look completely original. Nobody will ever know they were there.

Have you opened or removed interior walls and need the two joining rooms laced together for a seamless look between them? We can help you with that, as well as finding matching flooring so the old blends in perfectly with the new.

We can replace damaged flooring of any size or position, using the same type, grade, size and milling of wood so there is as close as possible to a perfect match with the rest of the floor. And we can even go in and match together rooms that had no hardwood flooring, giving your entire home a seamless feel.

Once those new areas have been sanded, stained and finish applied, they will look as if they had always been there.

3 important mistakes to avoid:

If you want to have an invisible repair then you’ll want to take note of the following...

1) The most common repair mistake we see is people using the wrong type of wood. Typically, this happens with red and white oak repairs. To an untrained eye, the two woods look very similar. And unfinished, they do look quite similar. Once finish is applied though, the difference is extremely noticeable.

2) The next mistake is using wood with a different milling. The three most common millings are plain sawn, quarter sawn and rift sawn. All of them look very different from each other. If they are mixed up in a repair it will be very noticeable and no matter how well the repair is done… it will be very noticeable.

3) Another mistake we see is using a different grade of flooring. If you have select grade wood, the last thing you want to do is use No2 common grade flooring and vice versa. It will stand out like a sore thumb.

We have systems in place to make sure we have all three factors right before repairing your damaged areas. Our repairs truly are seamless and invisible.

If you need a repair...

We only do repairs as part of a full hardwood floor restoration. We will need to come out and take a look at the section of flooring so we can see what the damage is and what is needed to fix it. Usually we do this as part of your in-home estimate.

If you want any more information or want someone to come out to inspect any damage in your floor, please feel free to get in touch.

A nightmare turned into relief when I met Marcos and he took ownership of my floors previously refinished by an incompetent contractor. Marcos knows floors, and has an excellent team. They showed up everyday on time and the project was completed timely. Thank you for showing me the beauty in my floors ! Ana B. - Burbank, Los Angeles, CA | 5 Star Review on Yelp
