Wood Floor Repair Service

WATER DAMAGE AND PET STAINS

We repair wood floor water damage on a weekly basis from pet stains, leaking appliances, or overwatered plants. Prolonged water exposure creates a black spot – while it takes a lot of water to make a piece of wood turn black, water exposure over a long period of time will do it. We replace damaged boards and refinish them, blending with your existing floor to our exacting standards. In the case of pet stains, we’ll even treat the spot so your pet doesn’t continue to mark that spot.

BLENDING OLD AND NEW FLOORS

We’re often asked to match hardwood floors. Maybe you want to extend the wood floors into another room, from downstairs to upstairs, or update stairs and spindles. While dependent on the type of wood, color, and stain, it’s more than likely we can blend all the flooring together so your home looks seamless. More importantly, we know how to ensure we’re using the right wood as part of our wood floor repair service.  Just check our gallery to see what mistakes can look like. (Unfortunately, we repair other people’s mistakes all the time).

OTHER WOOD FLOOR REPAIR SERVICES

We know how to repair many types of wood floor damage. We commonly repair physical damage and damage caused by temperature change. Pet nails, heels, furniture scrapes, or other rough use causes physical damage to wood floorboards. Cupping and buckling happen when wood floors are exposed to rapid changes in temperature and humidity. 

What does water damage look like on wood floors?

When water continuously hits wood flooring, it seeps into the wood and eventually turns the wood black. This might be from pet stains, overwatered plants, or a leaky appliance.

Can you match my wood floors exactly?

While it’s unlikely you’ll ever match floors exactly due to different wood, stain, etc., it’s pretty likely that we can blend it quite seamlessly. We do this all the time as part of our wood floor repair service. Give us a call to have us come out and take a look!

What causes wood floor damage and how do I prevent it?

There are many kinds of wood floor damage. Wood floors get deep scratches, gouges, and dents from heels or pet nails. Rapid humidity changes and water are also major wood floor damage culprits. The best way to prevent wood floor damage is to remove shoes, use felt furniture protectors, and keep pets off the floors. Also, keep the thermostat in a reasonable range – don’t go out of town for the summer and turn the A/C off completely for example.

What causes wood floor fading and can you help?

Wood floors exposed to the sun over the course of many years fade. A common example we see is when an area rug is removed that has been there for a very long time. Faded wood floors can be refinished and while it will definitely make them a lot better, depending on how badly the exposed wood is faded you may still see some demarcation in the wood.

What is wood floor cupping or wood floor buckling and can you help?

Wood floors exposed to a large change in humidity cup, buckle, or heave. They are actually quite absorbent, and can absorb or release moisture depending on the temperature. This is one reason we season flooring before installing in a home. When temperatures increase drastically, the wood floors absorb the humidity and expand. This causes ripples and heaves known as cupping or buckling. Our wood floor repair service can help.

How do you fix wood floor squeaks?

To some extent, squeaks are natural, especially with older wood floors. Wood floor squeaks happen when wood rubs against wood. Wood floors have an underlayer installed under them, so the squeaking isn’t actually from the flooring rubbing against the subfloor. It’s actually from the plywood subfloor rubbing against the joists. This happens when nails have loosened (especially in old flooring). It can also be from the nails missing the joist when the subfloor is laid in new construction. Unless you’re willing to rip up the flooring, this is probably something that’s best to consider a characteristic of your home.

Can you fix wood floor gapping?

Gapping is when you see a larger gap between the planks. It’s actually quite common for this to happen seasonally here in Rhode Island. Wood floors are quite absorbent, and will naturally expand and contract a bit as the seasons come and go and temperatures fluctuate with the seasons. As the humidity recedes, the planks shrink and you might see a bit wider of a gap. This is less of a problem with modern floors as they typically have thinner planks, but you definitely see this with older flooring. The wider the plank, the more room it has to expand and contract, and the wider the gapping will be. Like squeaks, unless you are willing to rip up and replace the floor, this is just something to accept as a characteristic of wood flooring.

“I highly recommend Ace. Their prices are fair, the response time is fantastic, the workers are polite and neat, and most of all, my floors look great. The floors were very marked by bad water stains and scratches and now they look like new. I have already recommended Ace to friends and will use them for the remainder of my floors.”

Peter K

Warwick, Rhode Island

“Troy and his team at ACE Flooring did an awesome job on our wood floors. They were in terrible shape, they were old, stained in desperate need of refinishing. ACE came in and made them beautiful again. I would definitely recommend them and use them again in the future. I can’t say enough good things about this company. “

Marie M

Swansea, Massachusetts

“They ripped up the old carpet, linoleum, and subfloor, and installed a new white oak floor… Then they refinished the entire first floor, and you can’t tell where the new floor joins in with the existing floor. It looks better than we ever imagined it would. Very impressive work. I can’t believe how well they seamlessly merged the new flooring into the old flooring.”
