Deteriorated floor gets new life and attracts buyer just two days after completionA lot of people would have decided to tear out the floor and start over. But Interior Designer Jen Phillips was determined to do the right thing.
The pine floors in the historic, downtown Cincinnati row house were damaged by water and years of abuse. Sections of the subfloor were rotten. And as the work began, termite damage was quickly discovered.
Phillips, owner of Interior Renaissance, called in her experts and got the answer she was looking floor.
“The contractor we hired determined that we could replace only the bad subfloor and flooring, then use a special machine to sand and refinish the entire floor to make it all blend and look uniform,” Phillips recalls.
