Most Homes built before 1980 were required to have solid hardwood flooring installed in order to get FHA financing.
The type of wood used was usually oak in random widths typically 3/4, 1/2", 3/8" and 5/16" thickness. These types of custom solid hardwood flooring can usually be refinished up to five times if done by a professional.
Things to look for in your solid hardwood floor can range from termite damage to pet urine or water damage. NOT TO WORRY, If you find this kind of damage we can surgically repair random hardwood floor planks even if it's in the middle of the room. After the solid hardwood floor planks are repaired refinishing of the whole surface is usually required. There are some instances where spot repairs can be compleated without refinishing.
