What does it take for us to do wood repair service in Chicago? First, of course, we’ll have to gauge the amount of damage done to the wood surface: How deep is the damage? How much area does it cover? Is it in a high-traffic area or a hidden corner of the home? Is it up high or down low? Once we get an idea of the extent of the damage, we can move forward with planning the repair.
Sanding & Refinishing
If the damage is not too deep, we can usually sand and refinish the surface. High-traffic areas may require additional treatment to prevent further routine damage. However, if the damage is deemed to be too deep, we typically replace the boards, and then sand and refinish the surface. Sanding and refinishing new boards is necessary to ensure the floor is even, and that the surface colors are an exact match.
When it comes to holes, we can fill smaller ones from previous cable or telephone installations to carpet staples. We will then sand and finish the area to ensure matching color and an even surface. For larger holes, we may have to completely replace the boards, including sanding and refinishing the entire surface.
Repairing Stains & Water Damage
Repairing stains in wooden surfaces is usually an easier task. Just like with shallow dents or scratches, we would sand and refinish the surface. Depending on where the stain is, we may have to sand and refinish the surface area beyond the stain, to ensure it’s even and color-matched.
We also repair water damage to wooden surfaces. This can be a bit trickier, as we cannot immediately repair water-damaged wood if the moisture level in the boards is too high. The boards may warp again, even after being sanded and refinished. Also, if the surface area below the boards is too damp, replacing the boards immediately may lead to the new boards being damaged by the moisture as well. If you call us immediately after noticing the water damage, we can come to your location and assess what work we can do and the timeline in which it can be done.
