If your hardwood flooring has been damaged due to water or if you have experienced a deep scratch or gouge, Totta Hardwood Flooring can restore your floors. In many cases, we can provide fixes for minor scratches without the need to completely refinish the entire hardwood floor. Solutions often include board replacements for both onsite finished boards and prefinished boards.
COMMON HARDWOOD REPAIRS
SPLIT OR CRACKED WOOD
Regardless of the effort placed in maintaining your hardwood flooring, there is always a chance for hardwood floors to develop small splits or cracks in the surface of the wood.
GAPPING AND CUPPING
Most of the time Mother Nature can be the one to blame for these conditions. Wood expands and contracts relative to the humidity in the air as it tries to reach equilibrium. That expansion and contraction will cause the hardwood floors to gap or cup.
When flooding or extreme moisture conditions occur, floorboards warp and lift up from the subfloor, this is called buckling. We take the steps to ensure that your hardwood planks are replaced and integrated back into your floor.
This is similar to buckling, it is when the edges of the hardwood planks raise up and the center of the board sinks down. The cause of cupped floors is a moisture imbalance where there is more water on the bottom side of the wood plank than on the top.
WARPED HARDWOOD FLOORS
This can be a big problem for the homeowner. It is a good sign that there is a major moisture problem within the home. Warped hardwood floors are rarely the result of faulty hardwood or installation, but are a symptom of larger moisture problems in the home itself that needs to be taken care of.
