Sanding and Refinishing

In 1965, Ralph Lorenz started Ralph’s Hardwood Floors with a focus on refinishing floors. Now, after more than a half century of being in business, our goal is still the same - to take your old floors and make them look new.

Today we combine innovative stains and finishes with the cutting edge technology of our Atomic Dust Containment trailers to create floors you could not even imagine. Watch your home be transformed as we refinish your existing floors without the dust associated with traditional sanding.

Our Warehouse

All of our vehicles and other supplies are also stored inside, to ensure that all of the equipment, stains, and finishes are being used the way they were designed to be used.
