Need to Blend Existing & New Wood Floors?
Should You Replace All Your Wood Flooring? Or, Blend the Old and New Wood Floors?
You could replace your current wood floors because they may look old and dull; however, you may not need to! Whereas some flooring stores may convince you to replace all the old floors to replace with new, we may be able to save you money by keeping your existing floors AND adding new wood floors. It will involve refinishing hardwood that you already have and then blending with the new floors. But, it can be done and we do it all the time! Your satisfaction is our #1 priority. We’re happy to provide a free consultation and quote.
Do you have hardwood floors you’d like to keep – but expand into the next rooms? If you have invested in a beautiful hardwood floor in one room and feel it is time to extend that floor to the next room, trust the experts at Cary Floor Coverings Int’l as we can flawlessly revitalize your existing floors and blend them seamlessly with new floors in adjacent spaces.
Matching the Wood Profile of Old Wood Floors to New Wood Flooring?
There is a bit of artistry to install and blend hardwood floors. You have to be able to take an existing wood floor and perfectly match the wood profiles like widths, lengths, wood grain, color, and more.
Extending Reclaimed Hardwood Flooring to Adjacent rooms?
Extending old hardwood floors to new rooms is a great way to tie your existing floors together with new flooring. With site finished flooring, we’ll most likely experience boards that are thicker than the original floors. If so, we match the profile after installation by sanding the new floors down to match the existing wood flooring.
In contrast, with pre-finished flooring the thickness will be matched from the beginning as there’s no need to sand and re-stain after installation. We blend your new floor with your old floor by using transition strips in the doorways and room transitions. Different length boards are woven in with the old floor in door frames to create a seamless transition with adjacent rooms.
Matching Color & Grain of Old Wood Floors to New Hardwood Flooring?
Even with identical wood species, and the same finish as the old floor, there will be slight variations in color. Wood may darken with age, and others get washed out by the sun. The color change needs to be taken into consideration when finishing the new floors. This is where our expertise comes in!
One way to deal with the lightening or darkening of your finish is to strip down the old floors and refinish all floors at once. If this isn’t possible, you finish the new floor with the same finish as the old and wait. Over time, your floors will even out in color. But, results may vary, and your two floors could end up slightly different in tone and color.
