Universal Floors, Inc
Linoleum Floors, Flooring Store, Laminate Floors
Universal Floors specializes in wood flooring installation, restoration, repairs, & finishing. We do not sell carpet, vinyl, or tile. We only work with hardwood products, bamboo, cork, or flooring that resembles hardwood (laminates). Why is this? Well, by only focusing on a certain type of flooring, we can better focus our talents to providing you with quality workmanship in that field. Below are a few descriptions of the basic work we commonly do as well as links to the various products we offer for sale in that category:
The basics involved in a sanding job are as follows: the floor is rough-sanded to remove the old finish that is on the entire surface of the floor. In the case of top nailed or surface-nailed floors, each nail is set by hand prior to this step. We then fill any areas that are appropriate or requested by the customer. Once the filler is dry, the floor is sanded again with a finer sand paper to remove any excess filler & smooth out rough sanding marks. Next, a very fine sand paper is used for the final sanding pass. The floor is then ready for the stain color (if desired) or the first coat of finish & left to dry. We then screen the floor, a process similar to sanding, but using a less abrasive screen instead of sand paper & the successive coats of finish are then applied & left to dry. Often additional screening is done between coats.
While there are products & possibilities available in a wide variety of choices when it comes to new floor installations, not all may be ideal for your project. Durability, design, & sub floor types can play a major factor in narrowing down your options. If you are considering installing a new floor, we encourage you to contact us for a free estimate. We will put you in touch with one of our service consultants & they will discuss with you what you are looking to do & what the best options are for your specific job. Universal can supply & install a wide range of flooring like: traditional wood types & board dimensions, pre-finished & "engineered" flooring products, Bamboo, Cork, Custom widths, medallions, borders, specialized designs, hand scraped flooring, laminates, etc...
