Tips Before Renovating Old Flooring

Broken Parquets for reconstruction.

The importance of flooring cannot be emphasized enough as it bears the burden of foot traffic from people stepping on it on a daily basis. However, if your flooring has already grown old (constant wear and tear), you might be considering having it renovated.  


For your new flooring to come out exactly the way you want it to, here are some tips that you should keep in mind before proceeding with the renovation:


#01. Hire a Flooring Contractor

You might know someone who repaired or replaced their flooring on their own, DIY-style, and you might be tempted to do the same. However, a professional flooring contractor can do much more for you than you thought they could. First of all, a flooring contractor can renovate your old flooring faster. Not only that, they also have all the tools they will be needing to renovate your old flooring. Decisions like what to replace your old flooring with can also come easy with a flooring contractor as they will explain your options thoroughly.


#02. Have Your Old Flooring Assessed

Before a flooring contractor can recommend what your new flooring should be, it is important for them to evaluate your old flooring first. They will tell you if your old flooring needs to be renovated or refinished instead. Trust us, this can save you both money and time.


#03. Remove Objects

This might be an obvious thing to do, but keep in mind that in the planning stages, your contractor can only fully renovate your old flooring if everything on top of it has been transferred to other parts of your home – where there is no renovating being done.


#04. Insured Flooring Contractor

There have been instances in the past where many untoward incidents happen when your old flooring is being renovated. This is why it is important that you only work with trusted flooring contractor, like the ones we have here in Tony’s Flooring.


Your old flooring might have looked good before, but after years of having to endure people’s feet stepping on it, and objects being dragged across it, it is bound to be damaged at one point or another. Thus, you might be thinking that it needs to be renovated so it can be presentable once again.
