Making Your Home Stand Out with Our Flooring Services in Portland, OR

Hardwood floors are typically very durable and long-lasting. But repair is sometimes needed due to negligence, water spots, pet stains, or age. Floors that are in poor condition can result in hazards including slivers, toe stubs, tripping, and even falls. Gaps and gouges in the floorboards also collect allergens and other harmful impurities contributing to poor indoor air quality. Calhoun & Sons Hardwood Flooring has many options with water or oil-based finishes available.


Installation

The installation of new hardwood flooring is a tremendous way to improve the look of any room in your home. Our flooring services in Portland, OR, will increase the value of your property and make any space appear larger and more open. Hardwood flooring is easy to maintain and reduces the accumulation of dust and harmful allergens. We also provide tear outs, where we remove your carpet or other flooring and replace it with hardwood flooring.

Repairs

Sometimes damage to an existing floor is from minor surface scratches, and with our flooring services we can burnish and blend scratches back into the existing floor. In older floors, repair may require sanding to a break-off point because we cannot create an aging effect.

Hardwood floors are typically a durable flooring choice, but if your wood flooring is old and has been subjected to heavy use, or was improperly installed, a repair will restore luster. Calhoun & Sons Hardwood Flooring will advise you on the best course of action based on the severity of the damage.

Sanding & Finishing

Sanding and finishing hardwood floors creates uniformity in the color and finish of the floors. Hardwood floors may require sanding and finishing to remove stains and restore an original look.

Recoating

Recoating your floors is a great way to create new luster and life. This is one of the fastest and easiest ways to improve the look of your floor and prevent damage to the wood. People used to wax their floors, but today we use no-wax flooring. To extend the life of a floor, recoating should be done every five years.

Planning Your Flooring Project

Estimating the time and cost of a hardwood floor installation will require an in-person flooring services consultation to evaluate what will have to be removed or replaced before installation. This can include a tear out of the existing flooring, flooring preparation, including a sub-floor evaluation, and installation of vapor barrier to protect your floors from moisture.

Every project is unique, based on the original construction of the existing flooring and how it was installed in relation to the walls. New installation can take several days. Typically, a family can move back into their home in three days. Within one week the finish has a 90% cure rate. Within 10 days you can place your area rugs on the finished floors. The off-gassing of the finished floor typically occurs between 30-90 days, depending on the environment within and without.

Scratch Repair

The process to repair a scratch depends on the severity of the scratch. More serious scratches require sanding while minor scratches like nicks or small grooves can be touched up to blend in with the surrounding stain.

Split or Cracked Planks

Using specialized, angled floor nails, Calhoun & Sons Hardwood Flooring will rejoin the splits in your hardwood planks and use wood putty to mend the scar. Depending on the nature of the damage, sanding the surface and applying a new finish coat may be required.

Gaping or Cupping

Gaping is the presence of gaps between wood planks. Cupping is when the middle of your floorboards sink while the edges curl up. This type of damage is usually a result of excess moisture. Repair may include tightening, sanding, restaining, and refinishing the flooring.
