Hardwood Floor Redo in a 1950s house/Crosspost to Flooring
We have old 1.5" wide oak floors in every room of our house built in 1950. The PO put a dark mahogany stain/finish on all the wood EXCEPT the back bedroom, for whatever reason.
It was the worst job I ever saw. The finish was slopped up on the toe baseboard, and there was hair and dirt embedded in the finish too. We were renting this house originally, and decided to buy it....too tired of moving to do it again.
So what I'm wondering, based on a previous statement above about having to tear them out if they were messed up, WILL WE HAVE TO TEAR THESE OUT? Or can we have them refinished back to a lighter more natural tone like the back bedroom?
Here is a link that might be useful: Anyone refinish old floors lately?
