We need running water and electricity to do our work. With new construction, we prefer to come in right after the house is weather tight, and before sheet rock, masonry or stucco. The entire process usually takes from 3 to 5 working da ys, depending upon the size of the house, and how extensive the scoring is.
Before we arrive
Floors must be clean and free of debris. (We will not be able to stain a dirty floor, and will charge a cleaning fee if the floor is not prepared.)
Running water and electricity must be at our disposal
The Application Procedure
Scoring can take from a few hours to a couple of days, depending upon how extensive the scoring work is. We will measure, mark and then score all of the floors before any staining is done.
Staining the floors can usually be completed in one day. We will prepare the floors by washing them with an industrial detergent. After they are dry, we will stain. Sometimes it is necessary to re-stain depending upon the depth of color needed.
We use manufacturer recommended wax sealers for a beautiful finish on our projects. The wax hardens to a nice matte finish, and is very durable and easy care for household use. We will wax the floor with 2 coats, then buff to a nic e sheen. This usually takes 1 day.
