How to repair/refinish manufactured hardwoods

Ken Erickson


I have some minor water damage to my manufactured hardwood floors. Although the damage is limited to just 3 planks, the damage included warping/softening of the top layers. I have sanded/removed the damaged part, how do I refinish it? Thanks for any help.

    You will need to match the color of the stain and then apply several coats of polyurethane. Ensure your poly has the same sheen as the original floor (satin or gloss). Good luck.

      Thanks. There are a few spots where there is a loss of wood, should I build this up with Elmer's wood filler or something like that? Is that o.k. for floors?

    You could try it. The problem is getting it to stay in place on the surface.
