Hardwood Floor Refinishing Services Vancouver

Dustless Refinishing

At Canadian Sanders, we use the most powerful vacuums to collect the dust from the equipment that is used to sand your floor. This means our floor refinishing process is much safer and cleaner than traditional floor sanding methods that rely on dust bags. Our customers particularly appreciate this process as it helps to keep the dust contained to a minimum and not leaving the mess behind for someone else to clean.

Furthermore, we only use the highest quality protection for all our hardwood floor refinishing. Our protection is not only durable but also easy to clean and maintain. With proper care, you can rest assured that your freshly refinished floors will last for many years.

Wood Floor Refinishing

To sand & refinish hardwood floors, our team uses high-quality dustless sanders that remove only the necessary amount of wood to address any scratches, dents, or stains and to level it out. We then vacuum the floor and apply a light coat of floor filler using a trowel. Once the filler dries, we sand it with fine-grit paper and then buff or polish the floor to prepare it for the sealer or stain application. We offer many stain options to choose from and can custom match and mix stain right on site. After sanding and polishing, we finish with various sheen levels: gloss, satin, or matte. This procedure can be used to refinish engineered floors, hardwood stairs, and pre-finished solid wood floors. At Canadian Sanders, we always apply multiple coats for refinishing floors to ensure the highest quality and long-lasting results for our customers.

Floor Recoating

Floor recoating is a cost-effective and efficient way to restore your hardwood floor. The process involves using a high-speed machine to smooth out the surface, which is then recoated several times to repair minor scratches, scuffs, and wear.  It is also known as sandless hardwood floor refinishing, which includes polishing, cleaning, and buffing.

Hardwood Repair & Restoration

Hardwood repair & restoration is to provide a seamless floor by repairing damaged boards (pet stains, water damage, burn marks, deep scratches) with brand-new floorboards. Also, we offer hardwood floor installation to expand on your existing wood floors, along with custom floor staining (floor coloring) tailored to your personal preferences and decor.

Refinishing hardwood Floors Has Potential

After a time, wood floors show their age; they look dull, worn, and scratched. These are signs your wood floors need some maintenance. Typical solid wood floors can be thoroughly sanded 4 to 7 times during a lifetime. Many Wood Floors need new protection to keep them looking good and prevent them from requiring complete sanding. Whether your wood floor is solid or engineered, it can be restored, and you can change the color to dark or light or something in between with your choice of matte, satin, or gloss sheen to match your home’s decor.

What Our Customers Have to Say

Floor Refinishing reviews

John did a fantastic job in restoring our engineered hardwood floor - highly recommend this company. Great service for a competitive price!
Karen F
We could not be more happy with the work of John on our old battered Douglas Fir floors. He came in and transformed 60-year-old floors into stunning and modern gorgeous wood floors. He arrived on time, finished when he said he would, charged us the amount quoted, and was pleasant to be around for the 2.5 days it took to work his magic! We are so glad we decided to use John to refurbish our floors rather than pulling them out. They are perfect!

Top Hardwood Floor Refinishing Questions.....

FAQ: Refinishing Questions and Answers

 How Long Does It Take To Refinish Hardwood Floors?

Wood floor refinishing can take 1-5 days, depending on the chosen service. Different factors, such as the wood type, pre-existing conditions, room size, type of finish, number of coats, and humidity, all influence the refinishing process’s timeline.

Can you Refinish a Hardwood Floor Without Sanding?

There are two methods to repair hardwood floors: sanding and restoring without sanding. Sanding is a process where a layer of wood is removed from the floor to get rid of deep scratches and stains. On the other hand, restoring hardwood floors without sanding involves preparing the surface of the floor to remove surface damage such as dullness, unevenness, and light stains that are not deep in the board. This method is also known as screening, buffing and recoating. After restoring the surface, new layers of polyurethane or protective finish are applied.

Can I Change the Colour of My Hardwood Floor?

If you have a hardwood floor that appears dull, scuffed, or worn out, we suggest applying a new finish to bring out its natural colour and tone. If the new finish doesn’t achieve the desired colour, we can change the colour through a process called staining. We can discuss various options for re-staining (colouring) your hardwood floors. View staining hardwood floor colors

How Durable Are Your Floor Finishes?

We offer a range of sealers and topcoats. Our finishes have been tried and tested for over a decade, ensuring we provide our customers with the highest quality products. Moreover, some of our floor finishes are proprietary, which means they are unique to our company.

Does Floor Refinishing Cause a lot of mess? Is the Process Dustless?

 Hardwood floor refinishing can be messy and time-consuming if you don’t use professional equipment. We use the best dust containment equipment on the market that keeps your home clean vs. traditional refinishing. Dustless hardwood floor refinishing is the most efficient and effective way to refinish your wood floor and keep the dust out of your home and your loved ones safe. Clients are thankful for hiring Canadian Sanders and not leaving the homes covered in dust for someone else to clean.

What damage can wood floor sanding remove?

Our wood floor sanding service can remove deep gouges, scratches, carpet marks, high-traffic areas, dullness, and dated floors. We use safe and durable products for long-lasting results.

Can you Refinish Engineered hardwood floors the same as a traditional wood floor?

Our service is designed to cater to all types of modern engineered hardwood floors available in the market. Some engineered floors can be refinished just as many times as traditional hardwood floors, which can be refinished multiple times, potentially lasting over a century with proper care. As long as there is enough wood, we can restore these floors to a like-new condition. However, not all engineered floors can be sanded due to insufficient wood. In such cases, we can still restore non-sandable floors without sanding, provided the floors have minor surface damage like scratches, scuffs, and uneven tones. If your floors fall in this category, sandless floor refinishing is a great option to restore them.


Can you provide Staining and finishing services if we decide to install or sand our floors?

If you have sanded your hardwood floor to raw wood or installed a new wood floor and you need help with the staining and finishing, we can assist you in completing the project. We take pleasure in finishing the final touches of restoring hardwood floors, as it is the moment when the results become visible. Once the last coat is applied, the transformation is amazing, and the outcome is often better than the floors you might find at a big box store.

Do I need to maintain my wood floors after the floor restoration process?

Floor finishes play an important role in protecting your wooden floors from stains, discolorations, and damage. Maintaining the protection can prevent the need to sand or replace the entire floor. On average, wood floors require new protection or floor finish every 3 to 7 years and longer if the floors are UV-finished. Regular maintenance keeps your floor looking good as the wood ages. If you fail to maintain the finish, the wood will be exposed to the environment, and a simple repair might not be possible.

What is light sanding and floor finishing?

 This process uses a high-speed machine with a solution to lightly sand your floor without sanding into the wood. We would then apply multiple coats of sealer and finish with your choice of sheen. This process will remove surface scuffs, scratches, and minor wear. Also known as recoating, hardwood floor recoating, or screening and recoating hardwood floors. This process is used to maintain wood floors.
