How to "screen and recoat" old hardwood floors

Posted by bobbie46 (My Page) on

I found that I can rent a floor sander and buy the sand paper to lightly "screen" our hardwood floors. What grit is best? Then what? The old floor is in pretty good shape but there were two floor furnaces which we removed and had patched so those areas will need more sanding and a very light stain. Some people have said "recoat". The floors were put in in the 30's and I don't think they have been redone. Suggestions please.

That's NOT a screen and recoat situation. That's a sand down to the bare wood and start over situation.

Sounds like you are right Live wire oak. Thanks for your input.
