We have been taking calls from homeowners, builders and general contractors about travertine flood refinishing. It is critical to note the process is of utmost importance, without damaging the floors further! For instance, we witnessed a crew removing baseboards with a crowbar with no regard for the flooring. Although the floor had been flooded and needs to be sanitized and re-sealed, the damage from scratches and gouges injures the floors further!
It also affects the cost of travertine flood refinishing because the cost just went up. Why? Travertine flood refinishing is more expensive than normal because it takes a lot of extra work to grind out gouges along the walls. When this much grinding is done, the whole floor has to be ground out to balance the floor’s surface.
When restoring flood-damaged travertine floors, experts suggest cutting the soiled sheetrock out and removing the old baseboards first, then replacing the sheetrock, refinishing the floors and, lastly, installing the new baseboards. These steps will ensure your travertine flooring will look better than ever at minimal cost.
We cannot stress enough that protecting the flooring with thick cloths before chiseling baseboards from sheetrock will save you time, effort, and above all…money!
