before_and_after_1_rvThe process of screen and coat (or buff and coat) is quite different from sanding and refinishing. Hardwood floor refinishing is the process where all finish is removed and the floor is sanded to reveal a new layer of raw wood. A screen and coat is a one-day process where a customer’s hardwood floors are lightly buffed and a fresh layer of finish is applied. Screen and coat is more cost effective than hardwood sanding and refinishing, but a screen and coat will not remove deep scratches, stains, or dents. It is usually recommended for dull floors that are in good shape, rather than wood floors that need refinishing. Screen and coats should be completed as maintenance every couple of years to floors that have been recently sanded.
