Houser-Metzger Educational Series: Passive Floor Restoration
Historic Homes were built by hand and meant to last forever. Their features did not have “lifespans” and they could always be repaired. Sadly, we have forgotten how to inexpensively repair and refinish our own homes. Join us to learn how to repair and refinish your home while saving money and a precious material from the landfill.
The old growth wood in our historic floors is a precious natural resource and most floors can only be drum sanded three times before they are at the end of their life. This class will teach how to patch, remove old finish, remove water and pet stains, and apply a finish all without aggressively sanding.
Participants must wear closed toe shoes and bring a lead safe respirator with lead (pink/purple) filters.
