In the heart of downtown Lilburn, Georgia, a remarkable project unfolded. The task at hand was the sanding and refinishing of an ancient white oak floor, which had witnessed over a century's worth of history. If only those worn-out floorboards could speak, the tales they could unravel. As I embarked on the initial walkthrough, I was astonished to discover the hidden beauty of rift and quartered white oak beneath layers of neglect. It became my mission to revive this flooring and breathe new life into it.
Choosing to stain the floor with Duraseal Medium Brown, I sought to enhance its natural elegance. To ensure a flawless finish, I employed the prestigious Pallmann system. First, the floor was treated with Pall-X Color, bringing out its innate charm. Next, Pall-X Power was applied, further enhancing its durability and strength. Finally, the floor was graced with a lustrous sheen using Pall-X Gold Satin. The result was nothing short of a masterpiece.
Interestingly, the client had initially contemplated concealing the hardwood flooring with a faux wood alternative. The mere thought of covering such exquisite craftsmanship with laminate or vinyl plank flooring made me cringe. Thus, it was an absolute delight to have the opportunity to resurrect this floor and allow its true brilliance to shine once more.
