Sandless Reﬁnishing (also called buff & recoat) is a hassle free alternative to sanding and reﬁnishing solid and engineered wood ﬂoors. This process is a maintenance or sprucing up procedure for ﬂoors that have not yet worn to the point of needing a full sand & reﬁnish. Buff and recoat can be done in just a couple of hours. Businesses love this process because we can come in at closing and have the ﬂoors dried for opening the next morning.
The buff & recoat process involves bufﬁng the ﬂoors to remove surface scuffs and scratches. Rhodes Hardwood uses state-of-the-art ﬂoor buffers that hook right up to a vacuum system. This makes the bufﬁng process virtually dust free.
After the ﬂoor has been buffed and throughly cleaned, we apply a coating of an odorless, fast drying, fast curing & extremely durable Bona® ﬂoor ﬁnish. Choose between oil and water-based ﬁnish; available in satin, semi-gloss, and gloss. Additional coatings are available for 99¢ per square foot, or 2 extra coatings for $1.49 per square foot.
Please note: The buff and recoat procedure will not remove scratches, dents, or dings that have penetrated the top layer of ﬁnish. Generally ﬂoors that have not had much attention in 7 years or more will not be able to get away with this process. Also, ﬂoors that are discolored, or have areas that the ﬁnish has completely worn off can not be recoated.
