The team of craftsmen at Darkstar Hardwood can restore existing hardwood stairs with a refinish. When refinishing your floors it can be easy to overlook the staircase but it really is the crowning jewel of your floors and makes the project look complete. The sheen and color will match as well as the appearance of the wood which can ding and dent over time and yellow with UV exposure. Stairs take a lot of abuse and refinishing stairs can be important for their appearance but also the safety of the staircase.
When refinishing stairs they lop layers of finish and a thin layer of wood are sanded off to remove dents, scratching and signs of age. The stairs are then refinished with a fresh coat of finish to restore their luster.

Reasons to Restore Hardwood Stairs
Homeowners, landlords and business owners often make the decision to restore stairs rather than replacing them for many reasons. Safety is a huge reason for repairing an existing staircase. Overtime stairs can wear causing safety issues. Nails can begin to protrude, cracks in the treads can hurt your feet and finish can wear too much cause slippery surfaces. Restoring stairs can help to mitigate these safety risks. When refinishing existing stairs many people find that the integrity of the stairs is repaired as well. The cracks are filled, nails are tightened and splinters are removed. Appearance is another big factor in restoring stairs. Stairs take a lot of foot traffic and can begin to look dull and old over time but refinishing the flooring can restore the stairs to their original beauty.
Refinishing stairs gives you the most bang for your buck. Sanding and refinishing stairs is a more cost effective option than installing new stairs. The building’s value will increase with refinished stairs making this a great way to add value to a home you are looking to sell. Newly refinished stairs are easier to clean and keep clean. The smooth coat of finish does not collect dust and can be quickly swept and mopped. Without the crevices and holes that may have existed before your stairs were refinished there is nowhere for pests to live cutting down on insects and critters that have made your home their home.
