After 90 years the original heart pine floors are still amazing! After sanding our refinisher looked at the wood and said “These old floors are 1,000 times better than new floors.” He is a man who knows what he is talking about. Unfortunatly, in a couple rooms we had to replace the floor because it had been damaged over the years. We went back with pine, but in order to make the color match we had to mix some stains. It should be close.
