I recently had my hardwood floors refinished and hve some concerns. When tack strips are removed and wood floors refinished, does a scratch remain where the edge of the tack strip was positioned? In many places of my newly finished hardwood floors, deep scratches run along the edge of where the tack strip used to be. When I inquired about the scratches, one worker explained that the scratches from tack strips are common. Is this true?
Also, some scratches run perpendicular to the tack strip line, suggesting incorrect removal of the tack strips. They used a floor scraper, pry bar and hammer, and I observed them leaving thousands of scratches in the process of removing both tack strips and nails. Is this common?
What should I do? Thanks for your help and suggestions.
