I am refinishing my 1918 hardwood floors. There were several layers on top but the one just above was tar paper. The tarpaper is stuck in places. I don't want to sand down to bare wood because I love the color, any suggestions?
typically if the overfloors were installed to meet current-taste and not to hide a failure, the underlying hardwood is going to be fine. a pro will sand it down, perhaps go over again with medium-fine belts, and finish it beautifully. depends on whether the tarpaper goo comes off cleanly without going to riot-gear grade belts.
sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
