Q: My dog has damaged my prefinished maple floors, with the tight grain. The only way to truly get rid of is to sand and refinish (I think). I like the prefinished look of each board having a somewhat beveled edge. Is there any way of keeping wood floors beveled edges in the process?

A: Unfortunately, this is an issue with maple and pets. There is no heavy grain to hide such nail impressions. The bevels can be left but they will have to be dealt with somehow. I would be afraid that applying a coating over a freshly sanded floor with un-sanded bevels would create adhesion problems on the board edges. I wouldn’t guarantee at this point that the untreated bevel won’t peel.

Note from Rachel: more ideas in this bevel related post!
