Recycling hardwood floors can be better than new

Published April 17, 2014 by marcistone

Wayne and I were planning on putting in hardwood floors upstairs in our home. As it turns out we have 2 sets of hardwood floors below our carpet. The top layer is in pretty good condition, but the previous owner had the hardwood screwed in so the floor wouldn’t squeak beneath the carpet. The floor refinishing company said they could fill all of the holes the screws created and it would just cost a little more.

I love the thought of just using what we already have. It’s less than half the cost, it will look better, and it’ll add value to our home. Sometimes new isn’t better.
