What Does a “Screen and Recoat” Mean?

Screening involves removing the top layer of polyurethane, but not the wood underneath. Screening and recoating are performed usually to remove dull and light scratches from the surface of hardwood floors. This is not to be confused with sanding the wood, only the old protective layer is removed. Recoating involves recoating the wood with a new coat of polyurethane, which can give it more protection.

Screen and Recoat vs Hardwood Floor Sanding

A screen and recoating is cheaper than sanding hardwood floors. Sanding is for floors with deeper scratches that require a more aggressive solution. A screen and recoat is a good option for someone with light scratches and dull hardwood floors that are not in need of drastic sanding.
