refinishing reclaimed maple--can patina be preserved
Hi. I just bought a mid-century modern home in southern california that needs a complete remodel before I can move in. I'd love to install reclaimed floors. I found some reasonably priced reclaimed maple flooring that was removed from a school classroom and gymnasium in Ohio. The floors are very scrathed up and dirty. I'd love to buy this flooring and have it installed. However, it is extremely important to me that the existing color/patina be preserved. Is it possible to have this flooring refinshed in a manner that maintains its color/patina? Thank you so much in advance.
