Dan’s Custom Hardwood Flooring in Marshfield

Installation & Refinishing

One of the best benefits hardwood has to offer over carpet is its durability. Instead of needing to be replaced every few years, hardwood floors (when installed or refinished correctly and professionally) can last for a lifetime. They increase the overall value of a home and are easy to style in different ways – basically, hardwood flooring is universally appealing. The materials, equipment, and tools used (along with the expertise of the installation & refinishing company) are what set the groundwork for a lifetime hardwood flooring. When any aspect of the installation process is lacking or using subpar materials, the integrity of the hardwood is compromised.

With that being said, the Dan’s Custom Floors team knows exactly how important it is to you that the hard-earned money you spent on your flooring is not wasted after a few years – which is why we offer the most dedicated, reliable, and efficient hardwood installation service in Marshfield. Each of our employees go through specific training on the best practices to ensure the longevity of our installations & refinishing process. Additionally, we adhere strictly to the National Wood Flooring Association’s standards for the safest protocols for our team.

What that means is that we promise a clean worksite, tight installation, the use of quality glue only where needed, and perfectly cut edges around the room of installation.

Marshfield Refinishing Process

Here at Dan’s Custom Floors in Boston, we like things to be simple: for one, simple things are easier to communicate, and two, simple is most often the way to go to ensure a proper job. We like to take it back to the basics with straightforward processes, knowledgeable employees, and transparent strategies. From the very beginning, we start with open communication to our clients about what they would like to see in the results of refinishing their floors. We will work with you to establish a timeline of when the project will be done, along with what you can expect from our experienced employees while they are in your home for the short duration. Once we are on the same page and have gotten a chance to physically see their floors, we can make an accurate bid for your project.

After that, we bring our tools and specialty vacuum systems to your Boston home to start the process of sanding down and dustless refinishing your soon-to-be beautiful floors. After the floors have their last coat of finish, we complete a final walk-through with you. This is the time where we impart some information on the best ways to maintain your refinished floors for the longest life, and ensure you are satisfied with the dedicated work we have provided. At this point, all messes will be clean, and all materials will be out of the home to show the full results.

Marshfield Installation Process

At Dan’s Custom Floors, we want our customers to fully understand all the steps that go into their installation because each of them is completed with the utmost care by our employees. When we prepare a bid for a customer in Marshfield, we put a lot of thought and effort into it. This step includes our visit to your home to properly account for the materials we’ll need along with any specialty equipment. We will provide a variety of hardwood options for our customers to choose from, and work with them to establish which one is the perfect fit for them and their family while incorporating their budget limits.

After an agreed bid, we work in a two-week waiting period for your hardwood to acclimate, and then schedule a time for installation. On the first day of installation, our friendly team members will walk with you through the project site to go over any last-minute concerns you may have. From there, we go through our high-quality installation process to ensure your lifetime hardwood floors. At any time, you are more than welcome to ask us questions while we install your hardwood so that you feel as comfortable as possible with our work. Once our installation is complete after 3 to 5 days, we go through one last walk through with you to confirm your exact specifications have been followed.

Different Options for Hardwoods

Although there are many options to choose from in terms of hardwood flooring, Dan’s Custom Floors tends to recommend a domestic choice because they are safer and much more stable than exotic hardwoods. While you can choose virtually any domestic hardwood that fits within your budget, we often see a common trend of walnut, hickory, maple, white oak, and red oak in Marshfield.

Hickory is extremely durable with a plethora of color variety and patterns within the wood and is a wonderful option for anyone with pets. On the other hand, walnut is often better suited in homes without kids or pets as it tends to be a fairly soft wood and can scratch easily, although its beautiful color is appealing to many. Those that like to switch up their furnishings often will find that maple suits them well because it can match many types of styles. Oaks are beneficial for those looking for an option that hides debris and minimal scratching (although white oak is slightly stronger than red oak). No matter what option you are looking for, Dan’s Custom Floors can install it for you for a lifetime of enjoyment!

Green Finish Options for Hardwood Floor Refinishing

Although there are many options to choose from in terms of hardwood flooring, Dan’s Custom Floors tends to recommend a domestic choice because they are safer and much more stable than exotic hardwoods.

As people become more aware of the chemicals they are bringing inside of their Boston homes, it is only natural to want to use green finishes. Traditional finishes tend to have harmful V.O.C.s and intense chemical smells that can last up to 60 days at a time, whereas newer green finishes can be water-based or U.V. finishes that are durable and much safer for consumers. Additionally, these finishes require little time to get rid of the smell associated with them and only require a maintenance refinishing coat about every 5-8 years.

The nice thing about green finishes is that customers still have a large variety of stains and colors to choose from instead of being limited with other “green” products. With the many different brands and no regulating body to decide what constitutes a typical “green finish,” we recommend asking professionals on the safest option for your home. Each brand has different pros and cons depending on overall environmental concern, off-gassing, types of ingredients, and effectiveness of the finish. When you have specific concerns about what you are looking for in a green finish, let the experts at Dan’s Custom Floors know so we can pick the appropriate finish for you and your family.
