New (Old) home owner, Flooring help
Just finished closing on our 1906 farmhouse. Its leading in at 2600 sq ft so we have some work ahead of us. My first concern is the floors. Inspector says the floors are all oak floors throughout the house even under the carpet. I want to refinish the floors, but I do not want them to lose their older feel. It was suggested that I just sand them down and refinish them. I don't want to do this unless necessary. I bought this house for its age. Suggestions? I was thinking about cleaning and maybe going with Waterlox or some shellac with some wax. I dont think the floors are in bad enough shape to have to sand right now. This will definitely be a huge project. I will keep everyone updated.
