Talk about old to new. We did these floors today in Northeast Minneapolis. It was an upper level bedroom in an old two story 1920s home. I don’t even think the floors had ever been coated. When I first saw them I thought they might be pine floors because they looked so bad. You can see how brown they were. But look at the perimeter of the floors. See how we already started sanding the edge and see how light the wood is? That is good because that means they are going to look nice when they are finished.
Now look at them. Can you believe it is even the same room? Look how nice those cleaned up. Douglas fir is a very soft wood. It wasn’t really used that much. It has a very unique look to it. I think it is kinda rustic. Some people really like. Some don’t like it at all. But the refinish totally transformed the room. The key to sanding douglas fir in my opinion is to cut the edges down with a 60 plus grit sanding paper on the final cut with a sanding pad on it. The sanding pad softens the impact of the edger and you end up getting a lot better cut. We refinish hardwood floors in Northeast, South, and North Minneapolis everyday so give us a call.
