Hardwood Floor Refinishing
Hardwood floors are classic and timeless – They add to the depth and character of any home. We have the knowledge and experience to install, repair, and refinish hardwood floors or staircases anywhere in your home. Whether it be for just one room or the entire house, we’ve got you covered. We serve all of the southern Wisconsin including Stoughton, Madison, and Dane County. The Stoughton area and Madison are known for their gorgeous old homes built decades – even centuries – ago. Most old homes were originally built with gorgeous hardwood floors that just need the proper upkeep to maintain their beauty and durability. We offer sanding and refinishing services for hardwood floors that need a facelift to bring them back to life. Truth be told, once we refinish your floors, they may look even better than they did when they were originally installed – that’s how much care and attention we put into our work! It’s not just old hardwood floors that need to be sanded and refinished, though. Your floors may be just a few years old but have seen a lot of wear and tear from everyday life and are in need of some TLC. Whatever the case, we specialize in sanding and refinishing hardwood floors and look forward to working with you to convert your flooring to the beautiful floors you dream of.
Schedule a ConsultationWe will schedule a time to come to your home and inspect and assess your flooring to determine exactly what we need to do to restore the hardwood. From there, we will give you an estimate then schedule a time to begin the work. We will work with your schedule to make sure it gets done perfectly and efficiently.
What We DoThere’s a lot that goes into refinishing hardwood flooring and it can make quite a mess. Luckily, we highly value cleanliness and always clean as we go. In addition to sealing off the area with plastic sheeting, we will sweep and vacuum the work area continuously throughout the process. We offer top quality work so you can trust that we will treat your home as our own and respect your living space while we work on your floors. Our goal is for you to love the end result for years to come.
Hardwood Floor Repair
We’re experts in hardwood floor repair! Hardwood floors can get damaged for a multitude of reasons including water damage in various areas of your home, pet stains, potted plant stains, open gaps or spaces where walls used to be, large gaps, holes big or small, deeply scuffed or banged up flooring from moving furniture, damaged floor boards, incorrect flooring repairs done by someone without proper experience, and much more. We can repair any of these hardwood floor problems and offer the highest quality work. We’ve been in business for over ten years and have the experience and skill to repair any hardwood flooring issue. Concerned that we won’t match your flooring exactly? Don’t worry about that! We have the means to source the correct wood in the exact size you need it. Sometimes, with the older homes here in Madison and Stoughton, it can be a bit difficult to locate the exact wood that was used decades ago, but we can still match it almost perfectly. If we can’t locate what you need, we will be honest with you from the first time you meet with us. You won’t be able to tell the difference between our work and the original flooring! This is not only because we are great at what we do, but also because we utilize specialized tools to remove the damaged floor boards without damaging the flooring surrounding it. The end result of the hardwood floor repairs we do is simply beautiful – and you will be thrilled with the outcome!
Hardwood Floor Staining
We love the end results of professional hardwood floor staining. It is simply breathtaking. Staining hardwood floors adds such warmth, depth, and beauty to your floors. We stain floors by adding color over the original flooring. Staining is added after the sanding process and before the finish is put on. Homeowners opt for staining when they’re looking for aesthetic change without having to put in new flooring which can cost several thousand dollars. It can completely change the look of the home and save you tons of money. Our customers are always shocked by how beautiful the end result is of freshly stained flooring. It can make your home look like a new home but with the familiarity of still being home. Whether you live in the Madison or Stoughton area, we can schedule an appointment to assess your hardwood flooring and learn what you are looking to achieve with staining your floors. There are a variety of stains to choose from depending on your taste and we will discuss these options with you when we meet. It’s important to hire a company that is skilled and trained in staining refinished floors properly. Many companies don’t have the knowledge to do it right so make sure you work with a well-known company like us at Nelson Flooring. Staining hardwood floors takes a lot of time and care and we always pay great attention to making sure it’s done right. We love staining floors because we love the end result – it adds great character to the home that will last for years to come. Contact us today to learn more about the staining process and to schedule your appointment.
Hardwood Floor Installation
Whether you’re looking to replace old hardwood flooring with new hardwood or want to transition to hardwood flooring from another type of flooring, we’re here for you. We get excited when we hear a customer say they want to remove their carpet and install hardwood instead! Not only will it add great value to the home, it will also add so much beauty that will never go out of style. If you have certain areas of the home that have hardwood flooring and other areas that have carpet, we will find hardwood that will match your existing floors. We will tie it together beautifully so that the naked eye won’t be able to tell what part of the hardwood floor is new and what part of the hardwood floor has been there for years. We’ll make it seamless. We get very excited to tell customers that if you’re installing new hardwood flooring that doesn’t need to match existing hardwood (because there isn’t any), that the sky is the limit! There are so many beautiful styles and colors and sizes and pattern varieties of hardwood flooring that we really enjoy this part of the process. We tell our customers to find inspiration online or in magazines so we can recreate the hardwood flooring of their dreams! There are crucial topics we need to take into account before installing new hardwood floors including climate, moisture and how it can affect the wood you choose, and proper installation procedures but we will go over all of that with you when we meet. It’s of utmost importance to us to do the job right the first time so that we all love the end result – and know that you will enjoy it for a very long time!
Staircase refinishing is often requested by our customers because stairs see a lot of wear and tear over the years. Lots of feet move up and down them, causing them to need some upkeep and maintenance to make them look like new again. We truly enjoy refinishing staircases since they are usually at the entryway to a home. They invite you in so it’s important to have them looking beautiful! As you can imagine, stairs are not the easiest thing to refinish since the area of each step is not very large and each step has very precise corners and edges. We are honest with our customers and let them know it’s a very intensive project that takes a lot of patience and care by us to do the job perfectly. We use special tools so we don’t cause damage to the small spaces when sanding, possibly staining, and applying the finish. Because it’s so labor and time-intensive, this type of refinishing can be a bit more expensive – But it’s worth every penny! We will discuss pricing and budgets with you before we get started so that we’re both on the same page of cost and quality. We pride ourselves in our work and know you will love it too.
Carpet Removal & Disposal
Carpet removal is no easy task – We will gladly handle this for you so that you don’t have to! We understand why you’d like to remove your carpet. It collects a ton of dirt, bacteria, and allergens and it’s definitely not as beautiful to look at as hardwood flooring! We get excited when we find gorgeous hardwood flooring underneath any type of carpet. Why would anyone choose to put carpet over hardwood? We’ll never understand. If you hire us to remove your carpet to allow the hardwood underneath to shine, we will cut the carpet into small pieces and throw it out for you. You can also do it yourself and save on money before we come in and refinish any areas of the hardwood flooring that may need it. Feel free to call us to discuss this process further – We look forward to working with you!
