Parquet wood floor refinishing for a DIY project?
Some DIY (Do It Yourself) projects sound and look a lot easier than they turn out to be. You read descriptions of the project in a magazine or listen to a friend describe it, or see a few YouTube videos and it looks like something you could do yourself, while learning a new skill. And you get that feeling of accomplishment. Sometimes it works like that, but not all DIY projects work out the way you intended.
Owners of a home over in Ortega Forest, off US 17, on the west side of the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida planned to sand, stain, and refinish their parquet wood flooring as a DIY project.
Parquet refers to detailed woodblock flooring, made of short pieces of hardwood. Parquet floors are installed arranged in a decorative pattern, to create a mosaic look. The woodblocks can be made from solid wood or can be engineered wood.
After the homeowners had invested their time and energy into the project, they were not satisfied with how the floor turned out. They called Dan’s Floor Store for a free consultation and estimate to professionally refinish their parquet wood flooring.
Here are some photos of the DIY refinished flooring.
After talking with the homeowners more, we knew the look that they wanted for their parquet floors, and we recommended they allow Dan’s Floor Store to professionally refinish their flooring.
First we sanded the parquet flooring.
Here are some photos taken while we were refinishing the parquet wood flooring. We finished the floor with Bona Mega Clear HD semi gloss, for increased scuff/scratch resistance with no amber tint.
When we had professionally refinished their parquet wood floors, our clients were very happy with the look of their refinished floors. And Dan’s Floor Store is always happy when our clients like our work.
