A screen and recoat is the best-kept secret in the hardwood flooring world. But it shouldn't be, because it can save you money, labor and time over the life of your hardwood floor. Screening and recoating also called buff and recoat is the process of sprucing up an existing coat of polyurethane by top-coating it.
A screen is just a mesh encrusted with abrasive particles. Because it is a mesh, there are fewer abrasive particles per square inch, making it generally less aggressive than sandpaper. Screens are also used under thick soft pads that further soften the cutting action of the screen. This is good because floor screening should only leave enough texture in the floor to allow a new coat of polyurethane to bond; screening should remove only a tiny fraction of the existing finish.

Not all floors can be buffed and recoated. Some wood floors are just too far gone to be saved by a simple recoat. If there is damage at the level of the wood, including dents, deep scratches, wear spots caused by heavy traffic , UV discoloration around rugs, and pet stains. Also wood floors that have been finished with wax are nearly impossible to recoat, the finish will not bond to them. Wood Floors pre-finished with aluminium oxide coating cannot be buffed and recoated either. The only solution to this is to chemically clean them first and then proceed to buffing and recoating them. Let professional wood flooring contractors take care of this process.
