Hardwood Sanding & Refinishing

Engineered and Solid Hardwood Floor Refinishing with full sanding and removal of finish. This is a classic way of refinishing which gives an option to stain the floor into a different or the same colour. Also known as dustless hardwood refinishing.
Most intensive option

Sandless Hardwood Refinishing

Sandless hardwood refinishing minimizes the amount of dust and decreases the loss of the top layer of hardwood. This is faster and less expensive option, but it is not recommended for fairly damaged floors. It is also knows as hardwood buffing and polishing.
Medium intensive option

Wood Floor Cleaning & Hardwood Recoating

Hardwood recoating is the lightest and fastest option for wood floor resurfacing without any loss of the top layer of hardwood. As there is no sanding involved, there is no dust. Recoating works well for slightly worn and dull surfaces. Environmentally Friendly.

    They did an excellent job for us replacing our home carpet with a natural acacia laminate. They had a wide selection of options, and provided good advice that helped us choose a high quality product within our budget. The installation was both fast and very well done, and the company was easy to deal with from start to finish. They have high standards of customer service and quality of work. We have received many comments from friends and family on how good the new floor looks. Thank you for your hard work and wonderful service, which we are already recommending to others!

    Thank you for another well done project. A few months ago we had quite a big work done in our house. BC Floors did some floor repair, sanded and refinished our old floors. Now it was time for our kitchen to be updated. We had new unfinished oak floors installed and finished with a custom color. We are very happy with the results. Again, very professionally done. Thank you!

    EXCELLENT WORK! We recently moved and wanted to update our new home. We contacted BCFloors based on their reviews and we have been very pleased. We replaced carpet, tiles and glossy outdated maple floors with contemporary wide plank natural oak. The workmanship was outstanding and all the staff were very good to deal with. The stairs are especially beautiful. If you are looking for a good company look no further!

Engineered & Solid Hardwood Floor Refinishing

99% Dustless Hardwood Floor Refinishing is the best way to get your old and damaged wood floors renewed. Floor refinishing can remove a number of the most common physical damages, such as: deep scratches, chips and dents, stains and worn out floor areas. Hardwood Refinishing can be performed on solid, engineered and parquet flooring. We work with water based finishes and stains that have no odor and dry significantly faster. Oil based finishes are also available.

Pros and Cons of Hardwood Sanding & Finishing. First of all, it is the most intensive method that will help you get rid of most of the dents, scratches and other damages by removing some portion of the top layer of your wood floors. Also hardwood Sanding opens up the wood so it can be stained in a different colour – the selection of stains is really wide. The main disadvantage of hardwood refinishing is that every time it removes about 0.5 – 1.5 mm of the floor top layer. It means that it can be done only a certain number of times which is indicated by the hardwood specifications.


Sandless Wood Floor Refinishing (Buffing & Polishing)

Sandless Hardwood Refinishing works very well for wood flooring that is in a quite good shape, but needs a little touch of refreshment. Sandless refinishing involves scuffing the floor lightly with a sanding machine (floor buffing) and applying an etching chemical to the surface. After that minor damages of the hardwood floor are repaired prior to applying a new top coat of finish. Refinishing without sanding also know as  hardwood buffing or hardwood polishing,

Pros and cons of Sandless refinishing. This refinishing technology is considered to be medium intensive. It is much faster and less expensive than traditional wood refinishing with sanding. It does not take off that much of the top layer of hardwood, but no method is 100% dustless, and you’ll still find a small amount of dust settling in your home. Refinishing hardwood floors without sanding will not remove deep scratches and dents and does not provide an option for staining the floor.


Wood Floor Refinishing & Restoration via Deep Cleaning & Recoat

This is a safe and environmentally responsible way of removing all surface accumulations from an old wood floor without any aggressive sanding or loss of any wood layer.

Pros and Cons. With Hardwood recoating you can get the same great results as from traditional refinishing or buffing without any loss of wood itself. You also have the same finishing options as you have for sanded floors including matte, satin, gloss and other finishes. And it is all with absolutely no dust. There is one restriction only – Hardwood Recoating and Cleaning works well for wood floors in a fairly good shape (with no to a minimum number of spots with physical damages). It will eliminate dirt, dust, oil and other contaminants that can weaken wood flooring and eventually lead to costly repairs or deep sanding and refinishing in the future. Many hardwood floor owners prefer to use hardwood recoating (wood floor cleaning) services every few years to extend the life of their floor protective coat and avoid a potential refinishing job. Most hardwood floors can be refinished a few times, but there is always a limit. Recoating hardwood floors is an excellent technique of preventative maintenance and can save you money over the lifetime of your floors.

Recoating of hardwood floors does not remove deep scratches and dents and does not allow staining or changing the colour of the floors.


Wood Stairs Refinishing & Restoration

With various refinishing options available, your worn-looking staircase has very good chances for a good uplift. Give your staircase a second life by refinishing hardwood stairs. Our specialists will sand treads and risers, apply the new stain or match the existing one and refinish them with a final coat of commercial grade finish. We also provide stairs  & hardwood floor repair services and new hardwood flooring installation services on stairs.


Sanding is capable of fixing relatively deep scratches in your floors as it completely removes the damaged surface. Floor sanding is a process of sanding down to bare wood to remove the old finish, staining the entire surface with the general color of the wood or other color and putting layers of clear coat for protection.


Screening or buffing can handle some minor damages on the very surface of your floors (layer of polyurethane) and dramatically revitalizes its look. Floor screening is a process of taking off the clear coat layer with a buffer (without removing any wood) and applying fresh layers of coat. Screening is definitely less expensive than sanding and requires much less time to complete.

Refinishing does not tolerate any mistakes and unprofessionalism. Our team of highly experienced specialists utilizes all necessary equipment, materials and techniques. All this results in maximization of your floors protection and consequently its durability and minimization of dust spreading.
