If you have an older home, you may already have hardwood floors. Also for some lucky people who decide to rip up the old carpet during a remodel, they find beautiful hardwood floors that have been covered for decades. What can you do to breathe new life in to existing wood floors? To bring them back to their original condition and luster? Hardwood floor refinishing and recoating is a great option if the existing floors are in decent condition.
