You finally decided to switch the old carpet in your living room with hardwood floor. That is probably one of the best decisions you ever made and there are a few reasons why.
- So, every few years, well before the protective coat has grown too thin, you refresh it with another coat.
- The crucial word is “before;” you have to recoat a floor before you see damage, which is hard for some people because they think they’re leaving money on the table by top-coating what appears to be a perfectly good floor finish.
- But polyurethane on floors is kind of like sunscreen on skin: not only do you need to put on a good thick layer before you expose it to the sun; you must reapply it periodically because it wears off.
- Once sunburn begins to appear, it is too late to start applying protection.
- Protection is always less costly than the damage that results from not having it.
If you wait too long, the your floor cannot be fixed this way and will need a total make over. Also, floors that have been treated with wax or washed with oil soaps will be really hard if not impossible to coat.
One should start looking for evidence of damage on a wooden floor about three years after the last sanding and coating and it’s always better to prevent than to spend money on fixing, so even if you don’t see any damage, it’s better to have your hardwood screened and recoated if a couple of years already passed since it was coated last.
If you are not sure if you floor needs or note a screen and recoat, you can either give us a call or request a free estimate on our website and we will be more than happy to come over and inspect the floor for you.
You better screen and recoat it today, than to sand it all the way to bare wood and refinish everything. That will always be more time consuming with bigger wallet damages, than a periodical screening and coating.

How much does it cost to screen and coat a hardwood floor?
The cost of screening and coating a hardwood floor depends on a number of factors, including the size of the floor, the type of wood, the condition of the floor, and the geographic location. However, you can expect to pay anywhere from $1.00 to $2.50 per square foot.
Here are some factors that will affect the cost of screening and coating your hardwood floor:
- The size of the floor: A larger floor will cost more to screen and coat than a smaller floor.
- The type of wood: Different types of wood have different costs. Oak is one of the most popular types of wood for hardwood floors, but it can be more expensive than other types of hardwood.
- The condition of the floor: If the floor is in good condition, it will cost less to screen and coat than if the floor is in poor condition.
- The geographic location: The cost of labor and materials will vary depending on where you live. Labor costs are typically higher in urban areas than in rural areas.
How do you screen and recoat a floor?
Here are the steps on how to screen and recoat a floor:
- Prepare the floor. Remove all furniture and rugs from the room. Sweep or vacuum the floor to remove any dirt or debris.
- Screen the floor. Use a floor sander to lightly sand the floor. This will remove the top layer of finish and prepare the floor for recoating.
- Wipe down the floor. Use a damp cloth to wipe down the floor to remove any dust or debris.
- Apply the new finish. Follow the instructions on the finish product to apply the new finish to the floor. Be sure to apply multiple coats of finish for best results.
- Allow the finish to dry. Follow the instructions on the finish product to allow the finish to dry completely.
- Move furniture back into the room. Once the finish is dry, you can move furniture back into the room.
When should you screen and recoat hardwood floors?
- When the finish is worn or damaged. Over time, the finish on your hardwood floors will wear down. This can be caused by traffic, pets, and everyday wear and tear. When the finish is worn, it will become dull and less resistant to scratches and stains.
- When the floors are scratched or scuffed. If your hardwood floors have scratches or scuffs, you can usually buff them out. However, if the scratches are deep or the scuffs are numerous, you may need to screen and recoat the floors.
- When the floors are discolored. If your hardwood floors have become discolored, you can usually clean them with a commercial floor cleaner. However, if the discoloration is severe, you may need to screen and recoat the floors.
- When you want to change the finish. If you are tired of the current finish on your hardwood floors, you can screen and recoat the floors with a different finish. This is a great way to update the look of your home without having to replace the floors.
What does screen the floor mean?
Screening a floor is a process of removing a thin layer of the topcoat finish, usually polyurethane, without removing any of the wood underneath. This is done using a screen, which is a type of abrasive pad that is attached to a floor buffer. The screen is run over the floor in a circular motion, and the abrasive particles on the screen remove the topcoat finish.
Screening a floor is often done to prepare the floor for refinishing. It can also be done to remove minor scratches and scuffs from the floor. Screening is a relatively quick and easy process, and it can be done by a professional.
