Hardwood Floor Refinishing

Hardwood Floor Refinishing


Hudson Hardwood is the company of Joe Hudson and is based in Philadelphia, PA. We believe hardwood floor refinishing is a long term investment and should be done with a passion for high quality workmanship fueled by education and experience in the industry. Joe is an NWFA certified hardwood installer, sander and finisher.


The longevity of your floor finish is determined by many factors such as maintenance and finish quality. A final factor rarely discussed is the quality of sanding prior to finish application. A properly sanded wood floor is usually burnished during a hard plating process. Burnishing closes down the grain of the wood and polishes the floor so that the finish will stand above the wood floor and protect it. A floor that has been sanded with too coarse of a sanding sequence will have very open grain. The finish will “fall” into the valleys of the rough grain and your floor will likely experience premature finish wear. This is why we prefer the Lagler Trio for all sanding steps. It spins 4 times faster than a typical floor buffer (720rpm versus 180rpm) and weighs 50% more. Sanding with a Trio results in a much more polished and flat wood floor with more finish in the right area for more protection.


We prefer the much more accurate phrase dust collection over the hype word dustless. No process is perfect despite how people market it. We prefer to rely on one sound principle. We will leave your house clean when we are done and not a dusty mess.


There are three primary factors in a hardwood floor finish that influence the longevity of your investment: solids content, resin structure, and application rate. Lower cost floor finish is very low in solids content (provides protection) and lack chemical catalysts that provide extra scuff and scratch resistance. Application rate has a tremendous impact on the final product because a finish applied too thin will not provide adequate mil-thickness for your wood floor. We use high solids Glitsa MultiKote applied with a roller to give floors with exceptional build and longevity. We also prefer Glitsa MultiKote because it has great adhesion to wood floors, which is essential if you are burnishing a floor to a fine polish.
