No one wants unattractive, uneven floors, but there are other big reasons to invest in Boulder flooring repair services as well. Damaged surfaces may allow moisture to seep through that can cause serious water damage to your subfloor or joists. And, if you are considering selling your house in the near future, Boulder flooring repair or replacement are good ways to increase property value and impress prospective buyers.
From appearance to function, surfaces can make a huge difference to your comfort and enjoyment of your own home. While they are meant to be long-lasting, they can't keep going forever without the occasional flooring repair. Boulder, CO homeowners, and business owners can trust Mr. Handyman to provide a wide range of expert repairs.
HARDWOOD FLOOR REPAIR
Many of the lovely homes throughout Boulder and the surrounding area feature beautiful hardwood floors. They are unparalleled for providing unique, natural charm to any house, and there's a hardwood option to match any interior design style. However, solid hardwood is vulnerable to rotting if it is exposed to excessive moisture. Some of the hardwood issues our Boulder flooring repair experts can handle include:
- Worn-off wood stain
- Patches bleached by sun exposure
- Dents, scratches and gouges
- Warped or buckling boards
- Gray, splintery surfaces
LUXURY VINYL FLOOR REPAIR
Luxury vinyl planks (LVP) and luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are newer types of surface materials that have become extremely popular over the last decade or so. Both LVP and LVT mimic the appearance of natural materials such as hardwood or stone very convincingly, so there's no need to compromise on appearance. At the same time, they are very durable and easier to maintain than natural materials. We can take care of luxury vinyl issues such as:
- Scratches or gouges
TILE FLOOR REPAIR
Most houses and commercial properties include some tile, and it's usually porcelain or ceramic tile flooring. As long-lasting, strong, and durable as those materials are, they can sometimes suffer from the surface damage that calls for Boulder flooring repair. Our reliable handyman team is experienced with a multitude of tile repairs for issues such as:
- Hairline cracks
- Dingy, crumbling, or cracked grout lines
- Replacement for one or multiple damaged tiles

Frequently Asked Questions About Boulder Flooring Repair
HOW DO YOU PREVENT A FLOOR FROM CREAKING?
A floor that squeaks or groans when you step on is incredibly irritating—especially when you're trying to sneak downstairs for a midnight snack without alerting the entire household. This Boulder flooring repair problem is typically the result of small gaps between the surface material and the subfloor. Depending on the material and the exact nature of the issue, your handyman may choose to insert shims under the surface boards or nail the surface more securely to the subfloor to eliminate that gap and stop the creaking.
WHAT CAUSED MY TILE TO NEED BOULDER FLOORING REPAIR SERVICES?
The origin of tile damage in particular is often something of a mystery. If there was sudden damage from a piece of heavy furniture being dropped on the surface, it's pretty clear what caused the problem. But it's much more common for trouble to start out very small, practically unnoticeable, and then slowly get worse as time goes by, which makes it a lot more difficult to understand why it's happening.
Some common causes of trouble that require Boulder flooring repair are:
- The building shifting and settling, which is normal to some degree
- The foundation is sinking or heaving
- Floor joists were incorrectly installed and are too far apart
- Subfloor and/or joists are sagging inward in the middle
IS IT POSSIBLE TO REFINISH VINYL OR LAMINATE?
Unfortunately, no. One of the best things about hardwood is it can be refinished many times to remove surface wear and blemishes, so an installation can last more than a century with proper care. Even engineered hardwood can be refinished once or twice. But vinyl and laminate are essentially plastic-based products with thin layers on top that give them their appearance. They can't be sanded because there's nothing under that surface that's going to look good if it's uncovered. Some surface issues can be corrected in vinyl and laminate with the right Boulder flooring repair strategy, but not by refinishing.
