ANNUAL REFINISHING

Refinishing services provide a cost effective solution to ensure the best possible gym floor appearance and performance, every year. We use proven methods, high quality supplies and the latest refinishing equipment on every job. 

In the refinishing process, QHF removes unsightly marks by light-grit sanding the top layer of finish. At this the point all dust and debris is removed and game markings are touched up if needed. Again the entire surface is tacked to remove any fine dust.  Finally, a new top-finish is applied in an even coat.  The end result improves performance and overall shiny look of your gym floor.

The Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association (MFMA) suggests most gym floors should be recoated annually. Many school districts agree. Because most QHF customers schedule annual refinishing after new installs or sand-downs. 

SAND | PAINT | REFINISH

Every once in a while, even the most cared for hardwood floor will require what QHF 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 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, court lining and finishing. 

In the best case scenario, with regular maintenance, it is recommended to sand your gym floor down to bare wood every 8-12 years. If all possible pitfalls are avoided, MFMA recommends no more than 6 total sand-downs for the approximate 75-year lifetime of a gym floor.

REPAIRS

Hardwood gym flooring is the typical choice for competition performance in basketball, volleyball, pickleball, etc. Gym flooring systems provide shock absorption, excellent ball bounce and safe traction characteristics.  Thus, athletes rely on excellent gym floor performance for fast-play and joint (knee, ankle, etc) safety. 

Thus it is important to protect from and prepare for the many hardwood-horrors that can affect the gym floors:

  • Water Damage (HVAC Leak, Busted Pipes or Natural Disaster)
  • Heavy Equipment
  • Heavy/Negligent: Use/Abuse
  • Termites
  • Irregular/Poor Maintenance

Court Layout Design

New installs, gym floor repairs and routine sanding all result in a bare-wood floor.  Some gyms request to repaint game-markings as before. While other gyms take this opportunity to update gym floor graphics (logos, lettering, etc.) and updated game markings.
