Charleston Homeowners Love Their Refinished Hardwood Floors!


Frann Carlton


Randy and his team refinished and added to our 20 year old wood floors.

Our floors were the typical orange colored pine thin planks with some small areas of damage. The result was stunning, a huge facelift for our home. The floors look like new and the additional portions match perfectly. 

Randy was very responsive throughout the process and cost effective as an extra added bonus!

Highly recommend his services.

We purchased a home with original oak parquet floors that required refinishing, patching and filling.

We wanted to maintain the original aesthetic of the parquet but with a more modern light look. We are in love with our new floors!

Randy and his team did a fantastic job. I also appreciated his knowledge and patience with me throughout the process (I work in Interior Design and tend to be indecisive).

Thanks Randy!

Types Of Hardwood Floor Finishes

The best part about refinishing hardwood floors is that you can make them look completely different depending on the type of finish you choose.

At our on-site consultation, we’ll show you samples and explain to you how every finish acts differently. Until then, let’s discuss the most popular hardwood finishes.


The most popular surface finishes are oil-based and water-based polyurethanes.

Water-based poly is harder than oil-based, which means that it is more susceptible to surface abrasions, whereas oil-based poly is more prone to denting.

Shellac is native to India and Southeast Asia, and it’s created from a resin found in the lac beetle. It has no odor and is extremely quick drying, which can make the application process more difficult to avoid lap lines.

Shellac has excellent adhesion characteristics, making it a great choice when working with oily woods, like some exotic tropical species, or with pitchy woods, like pine.

Shellac is less durable than the urethane finishes, but because it dries very quickly it works great to touch up damaged areas.

Acid-Cured Finish

Acid-cured finish (or Swedish finish), is a quick-drying, slow-curing, extremely durable option best used on exotic wood floors or those with elaborate patterns, like parquet flooring. In addition to its durability, an acid-cured finish is also highly transparent, and elastic.

On the downside, this finish has very high VOC content which is harmful for humans. It also has a long and difficult application process which requires a professional.

Penetrating Oil Sealer

Oil sealers are very often used to floor refinishing.

Oil has a more mellow, lower luster sheen than polyurethane finishes. Aesthetically, oil sealers are great because they penetrate the wood incredibly well, deepening its color and highlighting the natural wood grain.

Oil sealers are combinations of highly modified natural oil, most often linseed or tung oil, with different additives to improve hardness and drying. Oil is less durable than polyurethanes, but it’s easier to apply, won’t crack, craze, or peel.

Hard Wax Oils

Hard wax oils are non-toxic and emit no-VOC, while at the same time they permeate the wood and act as a barrier against stains and moisture, preventing warping and weakening. Hardwood floors with this finish are more water resistant than polyurethane-finished floors.

Hard wax oils come in different colors, from clear to dark amber, and all of them can create a warm, natural matte appearance.

The application process is quick and easy, and the repair process is even easier. Water spots can be repaired with just a light sanding of the affected area, followed by a topical coat of oil.

The only downside is that floors finished with hard wax oil require a periodic coat of maintenance oil. Luckily, the process is easy and can be accomplished by the homeowner.
