Hello, I am John Andrew with John Andrew Hardwood Flooring and I am here to talk to you today about sanding and refinishing your parquet floors. Parquet floors were popular in the 60s and 70s, and they have a cross grain construction so that are not as easy to sand as your typical strip hardwood flooring which typically go in one direction. This is one of the more difficult floors to sand because of the cross grain application. So I would suggest calling a professional contractor. A lot of times they will analyze your floor and let you know what they can do to sand and finish the floor and rejuvenate your parquet. Once you determine that, you may look at some other options then sanding and finishing the parquet. You may choose to maybe take the parquet out and do something new. You may choose to go ahead and sand and refinish the parquet. There is a variety of stains that we can put on the new parquet because once we sand it it's going to be to the raw wood color. So now you can go back with any color you like that they made from the staining company. It goes from a white pickled floor all the way to a ebony stain and any where in between. You can also use three sheens of polyurethane typically. There is a satin semi-gloss.
