Hardwood floors are popular for their charm and beauty, as well as their longevity. In addition to making your home look good, they also increase its value. However, wood flooring can take a beating over time due to everyday wear and tear. It may also receive severe damage due to water and other elements. In general, hardwood flooring can usually be refinished and avoid being replaced by sanding or replacing individual boards. If your hardwood flooring becomes damaged, it’s important to determine whether the floor can be fixed or needs replacement.
At Virginia Top Floors, our floor restoration experts take the time to evaluate each property in Calverton, VA, and properly assess what's best for your floors.

During our initial visit, we review all of the problem areas on your flooring and will work with you to determine the best course of action. We can replace floors partially or completely and will always aim to closely match your undamaged floors.
Below are ways to tell if your floors need to be repaired or replaced:
In most cases, you’ll be able to repair your hardwood floors as long as the wood is thick enough to be sanded down. Typically, one way to determine if your floors have been sanded down a lot is to look and see if you can see the nail heads in your flooring. If you can see the nail heads, it means that your floor has been sanded too many times and will need to be replaced. A good candidate for floor repairs are floors with paint stains or carpet material that were bonded to the wood. Also, floors can often be repaired from scratches in the wood, color fading, stains, and spills. It primarily depends on the extent of the damage, and the type and condition of the wood.
If your floor has been sanded and refinished numerous times, it may be beyond repair and need to be replaced. Additionally, if your floor has suffered from flood or termite damage it will have to have the affected boards or entire floor removed and replaced. Also, if there is any bulging, warping, or buckling in your wood it will need to be replaced.
At Virginia Top Floors, we assess the damage to your flooring and determine what is best for your budget and flooring. If only individual boards need to be replaced, we will closely match them to your undamaged floors.
