Sports Floor Resurfacing

Every once in a while, even the most cared for hardwood floor will require what QHF Sports calls a “sand-down”.  Resurfacing a gym’s hardwood can return an older gym surface to “like-new” conditions and improve performance.

Some reasons to sand your gym floor include:

  • Finish Peeling/Chipping/Flaking
  • Water Damage
  • Change in School Logo or Color

The QHF pros remove existing finish and game-lines resulting in bare-wood during the “sand-down”. This allows QHF Sports to inspect the gym floor for any damaged boards or areas on the playing surface and subfloor. Next the gym floor is lightly sanded again to ensure all minor dents or scratches are removed. Once the floor is sanded and vacuumed, the sanding process is completed by sealing, painting and finishing. 

It is recommended to sand your gym floor down to bare wood every 8-12 years. The MFMA recommends no more than 6 total sand-downs for the approximate 75-year lifetime of a gym floor. This is said if all possible pitfalls are avoided.
