Wood Floors: Replace or Refinish?

Reading Time: 1 minute

In this age of tight budgets and green thinking, when it comes to a new floor, what is to be done?

As to the green side of things, there is certainly an argument for installing bamboo floors.  This is particularly true if you live in a new property.  But, if you live in an older building, with hardwood floors already in place that may look a little worse for wear, what then?

Take a look at this video courtesy of Greenovation TV, the story of a couple in this very situation:

Sometimes, in situations like these, it makes sense to see what’s around and see how it can be best utilized.

For those of you looking to invest in an unfinished floor to gain the vintage look that Kevin got with his refinishing job on his existing floors, you can see that the results are easily (and not very expensively) achievable.  The great thing about a maple floor, which is what Kevin has, is that they tend to be very long-lasting.  And this makes the investment of a solid floor an overall investment in your property that increases value on many fronts.
