Every hard wood floor needs to be refinished at some point in time. The more traffic it endures, the more the finish wears off, thus requiring a refinishing job. Floor refinishing requires knowledge and experience in order to be done right.
Staining is done in order to change the color of a hard wood floor. Stain is a special material, which is absorbed into the wood, but does not cover the grain and natural wood pattern

One of the biggest headaches for a wood flooring professional is dealing with customer complaints. If we are like many contractors, many of the complaints we get have to do with moisture-related problems, like cracks between boards, cupping or crowning. We can go a long way in preventing the complaints, however, if we take the proper precautions in installation and educate the customer about what to expect.
To begin, it's important to understand the basics of how wood interacts with moisture. Wood is hygroscopic, meaning that it gains and loses moisture as the relative humidity and temperature of the air around it changes. Depending on humidity, wood will reach equilibrium moisture content (EMC). As the EMC of the wood flooring decreases, the wood shrinks; as the EMC increases, wood expands.
