Refinishing or Installing New Wood Floors in Your Church
Churches that are looking to replace carpet Altars have a choice of going with either marble or wood floors.
If the Nave has wood floors, usually we can just refinish the existing wood floors (move the pews, refinish, and reinstall the pews). If the church is looking to go with a new floor, the recommendation is to install porcelain tile for less maintenance.
Church hardwood flooring presents a unique challenge, unlike that faced in residential or commercial buildings.
Artech Church Interiors understands the requirements necessary for a successful church hardwood floor installation. We are able to not only install a new wood floor, but move and re-install the pews.
Pews need to be moved three times during hardwood flooring installation and your local carpet and flooring company has likely never worked with pews before. They do not have the required knowledge to properly label, loosen, and move pews without damage, and they most likely won’t know how to properly re-install them.
No floor is perfectly level and a pew reinstalled in the wrong place, can wobble and crack your new hardwood floor.
Some pews have a concealed anchor system, instead of L-brackets, to secure a pew to the church floor. Most floor installers would not know to reinstall the pews using these anchors. They would typically use L-brackets instead, leaving unsightly exposed brackets instead of the concealed anchor system. These L-brackets would also make unnecessary holes in your new wood flooring.
When you choose Artech Church Interiors, with over 45 years of Church renovation experience, you are guaranteed that your new or renovated Church hardwood floor will reflect the care you took to choose the right Church flooring company.
