Welcome back to our blog! Hopefully, you’ve been keeping up with our posts, keeping your knowledgeable about your Dallas flooring up-to-date. In our last few posts, we’ve gone over what trends to look for this year and what hand-scraped hardwood is all about. In this blog, we are going to switch gears a bit. While we love installing and helping you find a brand new floor for your home in Dallas, sometimes it is not necessary. Refinishing your hardwood floor can you give you the look of a brand new floor but at half the cost. At Texas Hardwood Flooring, we want to give you all your options when it comes to your flooring in Dallas.
If you are considering refinishing your flooring, find out which time is best for this project.
If you have bought a new home in Dallas, congratulations! Owning your first home is an exciting time, and full of a lot of change. If you have discovered hardwood floors under the carpet or knew there was a hardwood the whole time, it may be a good time to restore it to its full potential. One of the best times to refinish your flooring in Dallas is before you move in. This is beneficial because there is nothing present in the home yet. Not only does refinishing your hardwood save on cost, but also refinishing before you move in, means no one is needed to move your furniture.
If you have already been living in your home and are wanting to refinish your hardwood, a great time to get this is done is when you are away on vacation or out of the home. The reason for this is because you or your family will not be able to walk on the floors for at least four days, which makes it difficult to stay in the home. This also makes it much easier for our team to get the work done quickly and efficiently. If you know you are going to the beach, Disney World, or even out of the country, schedule your floors to be refinished at that time, you will be thankful you did.
Selling Your Dallas Home
If you are wanting to move into a new home in Dallas or a whole new area altogether, refinishing your floors may be a great investment to sell your home. If you know your floors need a little TLC, don’t skimp on this important step. Odds are if you leave the floors the way they are, your house may not sell. Additionally, worn floors show how you lived in the home, and it may appear that you didn’t maintain the house like you should have. Your floors say a lot about your home’s character. Consider refinishing when you know you are going to sell. It could possibly increase not only the cost of the home, but the rate that you sell it. While you may think this is a hefty investment to put into a home you won’t be living in anymore, it is much more costly to refinish the floor than replace it entirely.
If you are refinishing your hardwood floors, it is important to do it at a time that helps you and your Dallas home. Making sure you are out of the home is key for refinishing your floor, since you aren’t able to walk on it for at least 4 days.
