I am amazed at the change this made in my home! Our hardwood staircase had always been carpeted except for the edges. I was tired of the old look and wanted to have just wood. My husband started searching for a local, independently owned business and found Stand Up Flooring. Wajciech came out the next day and gave us estimates for sanding and refinishing the stairs and upstairs balcony and railing. He gave us the option of all wood finish or wood finish on steps and balcony and railing with white painted risers and spindles. We chose the latter and couldn’t be happier with the finished product. I feel like I have a beautiful new piece of furniture in my entry instead of just a functional way to get upstairs. Wajciech and his painter were perfectionists and tended to every detail. I highly recommend this company.

I would recommend Stand Up Flooring to anyone that needs hardwood flooring work. His work is professional and timely. He even brought in a painter and a carpenter to take care of some builtin cabinets that had to be removed and repaired. 5 stars!

A few years ago I had my floors redone by Stand Up Flooring in my Papillon Spa in Mount Prospect. The vinyl floor they installed still works perfectly for our needs and is very durable. I greatly appreciate the work that Wojciech did and I will always recommend him as a person to go to for floor restoration and installation.

Experience the versatility of hardwood with our engineered floor installation. We bring the warmth and charm of hardwood to spaces where traditional solid wood might not be suitable, ensuring both aesthetics and practicality. We can install any engineered wood. The advantage of it is that it does not need to be sanded. After installation the floor is ready – no mess behind. We are very careful when installing this kind of floor to not leave the tools directly on it and not scratch it up. It is crucial to achieve a stunning look and protect the floor also during the installation process.

Refinishing Woodwork
Woodwork Refinishing – Quarter Rounds, Baseshoe, Baseboards

Pay attention to the details with our woodwork refinishing service. From quarter rounds to baseboards, we refine these essential elements, adding a polished touch to your overall space. It’s the finishing touch that completes the room. It is obvious to us that we install quarter rounds together with vinyl floor installation. In some cases, we replace/install all the woodwork and that requires time as it is a very detail-oriented job. We don’t leave things like gaps or nail holes for the painter. We leave the work visually acceptable even when we know that it still requires a few more steps to complete like painting etc.

Hannover Park, Illinois

Recently hired Stand Up Flooring for a major update in my Hannover Park home, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Wojciech Puzniak and his team installed new floors on two levels, built a fresh set of stairs, and did some excellent sanding with a natural, water-based finish.
The project finished right on schedule, and they kept my house tidy throughout the process.

Excellent job! We had a little struggle with choosing the right stain color to match our cabinets and Wojtek has recommended us a good one. He even put the water base finish on the stain samples on the small part of our actual floor to help us envision it better. Great work!

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

The length of the refinishing process can vary depending on the size of the room or work area and the condition of the floor, but it typically takes about three to five days. This includes sanding, staining (if desired), and applying the finish coats. The different finish has different drying time, for example, an oil-based finish requires at least 8h of cure time between coats in regular conditions (depending on humidity and if the windows are open, or the fan is running), and the water base is usually dry after the 2 hours with airflow.

Yes, you can stay in your home during the refinishing process, but it is important to keep in mind that there will be some noise and some dust. We take precautions to minimize the mess like securing the other areas of the house by taping the foil and cleaning up thoroughly when the work is done, as well as using a vacuum with a dust separator, filters, and good-quality tools. The only time when you usually won't be able to stay is in the last phase, only when applying an oil-based finish due to a high VOC and fumes concentration, or when you restore all the floors at home and have no other rooms to stay in.

Yes, all furniture and other items need to be removed from the area before we start the refinishing process. It would have to be done earlier before we start refinishing, as we need to plan our time accordingly. If you can't move it yourself for any reason, you'll have to hire someone to do it for you, however, in some cases, we are able to help with a few items, but not gonna move everything for you, unless you want us to delegate that work and find someone to do it. There is always room to talk about solutions.

We use a variety of finishes depending on the customer’s preference and the condition of the floor. We apply both oil-based polyurethane and water-based finishes like Bona, Loba WS EasyFinish and Pallman, and can explain the difference between them all. Each type of finish has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the best choice depends on your specific needs and preferences.

Depending on what kind of finish we are gonna use, there may be some odor during the refinishing process due to the chemicals in the finish. This is minimal when using a water-based finish. The oil-based finish gets concentrated a lot, but oxidizes in the first 24 hours.  However, we take steps to ventilate the area and minimize any unpleasant smells, which also speeds up drying times.

After the refinishing process is complete, it is important to avoid walking on the floors right away.  Cure time: Allows for really light foot traffic in 2-3 hours (when using a water-based finish and at least 8 hours when using an oil-based finish), normal traffic after 24 hours. It all also depends on the amount of airflow.  Full cure takes about 5 days but furniture can be set after 72 hours and we recommend area rugs in 10-30 days. Although rugs can be set in as little as 5 days.

Once the finish has fully cured, you can clean the floors with a hardwood floor cleaner like EcoMe floor cleaner, Bean & Lily floor cleaner, Aunt Fannie’s Vinegar floor cleaner, Puracy natural carpet upholstery shampoo, or Better Life Naturally Dirt-Destroying Floor Cleaner, etc. and avoid using any harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners. It’s also a good idea to place felt pads under furniture legs to avoid scratching the surface.

Yes, we can refinish engineered hardwood floors, but the process is slightly different than refinishing solid hardwood floors. We will assess your floors and recommend the best approach for refinishing them. Usually, you can refinish an engineered floor up to 2 times, it all depends on the amount of real wood layer in the engineered floor and the floor wear.

The cost of refinishing hardwood floors varies depending on several factors, including the size of the floor, the condition of the wood, the type of finish used, if there will be a stain used or not if there is some woodwork to do like quarter rants; base shoe; baseboards and the location of the job. On average, the cost ranges from $3 to $8 per square foot. However, we are quite competitive and usually charge from $2-6 per sqft for sanding depending on the job complexity, and $2-4 for installation.
