Hardwood Refinishing in Athens

Hardwood floors are a valuable design element in any home. Classic, with the ability to be incorporated into any modern interior, they are durable, hypoallergenic, and can be stained a wide variety of colors.

At Slaten's Flooring & Home Repair, hardwood refinishing is our business. Practicing in the local industry for many years, every member of our dedicated team is fully licensed and bonded, to provide our Athens clients with the best possible service.

Even if you are fond of that weathered look an older hardwood floor takes on, it’s not very practical. We can maintain a shabby chic look with proper refinishing techniques and ensure that your floor lasts for a very long time.

Refinish or Replace?

When you’re faced with an old hardwood floor, the dilemma is to refinish or replace. Many Athens homeowners opt to install carpeting. But at Slaten's Flooring & Home Repair, we don’t believe that’s the best answer. Refinishing hardwood floors is always going to be worth it unless it’s absolutely against your personal preference.


When you come to your home for wood floor refinishing, we’ll tidy the surface up, sand it, and add a new stain/sealer. This can take between three to five days, normally on the lower end.

Tearing up old flooring and replacing it will take one to three weeks just for materials to arrive. While you may say that carpeting will only take a few hours to tack down, that carpeting will need to be replaced a lot sooner than well-maintained hardwood.


Sure, carpet is the ultimate cheap option, but do you really want to go for the ultimate cheap option in your home? Our home is the reflection of ourselves, and hardwood flooring is the most impressive mirror there is.

When it comes to replacing, it will cost you upwards of $4,000 whereas refinishing will set you back roughly $1,500. That’s a big difference.

Suitable for any Style

Just because hardwood flooring is a classic doesn’t mean that you have to be a connoisseur of older styles to appreciate it.

Hardwood floors are both old-world and trendy. Stains can brighten them up or darken them for a more dramatic look. At Slaten's Flooring & Home Repair, we believe in staying up to date on all the latest design trends, and you wouldn’t believe how amazing light wood floors look in wide open modern spaces.

Our Athens clients have yet to regret restoring their floors.
