Types of Repair
Hardwood floors can last a lifetime with the proper care and maintenance. Sometimes, unforeseen accidents may happen and damage may occur. You’ll want to hire a professional that is experienced with hardwood floor repair in Orange County. Common repairs include cracks/splits, gaps, buckling, cupping and warping.
Splits and Cracks
Over the years, hardwood floors may develop small splits or cracks in the surface of the wood. Small splits can be spot repaired using nails and wood putty. Larger cracks may require refinishing the floor. If the split is particularly bad, replacing the plank altogether is the best option.
Another problem for hardwood floors is gaps. Wood shrinks as it dries and expands when it gets wet and humid. This regular expansion and contraction over time is the most common cause of gaps. Generally, if the gap is less than the thickness of a dime, a repair is not required. If the gap is larger than a dime, our experts can help fill the gap so it doesn’t get worse over time.
Buckled floors happen when the boards warp and lift up from the subfloor that they are attached to. First, it is important to identify the cause of the buckling and address that first. Once that is addressed and the boards are firmly attached to the subfloor, any additional repairs required will be done to make your floor look like new.
Cupped floors are 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. Once the moisture imbalance is addressed and your floor has stabilized, your floor can be sanded and refinished.
Warped hardwood floors are a serious problem and indicate a moisture problem. It can be the result of a water leak, pipe burst or flooding. Once the water issue is taken care of, the wood should be allowed to dry and see if it can return to its original condition. If it can’t, replacement of the floor is the only option.
