Wood gymnasium floors can last the life of a gymnasium facility if properly maintained and repaired. Most gym floor repairs are the result of impacts from heavy objects, bleachers or water infiltration. Water damage is often the result of pipe breaks or ground water intrusion. General use as the gym was intended will generally cause the need to repair or replace boards or sub floor sections. General use requires routine annual maintenance including buffing and recoating of the floor finish. The floor should be resanded and refinished about once every ten years depending on wear. The most important way to extend the life of the gym floor is to follow these maintenance recommendations and dry mop/dust the floor at least daily and preferably between every basketball or volleyball game.
Renovating your gym floor involves careful consideration of many factors from top to bottom. Starting off, you need to figure out if you need a floor refinish, or a total renovation. Some wood gym floors might look old and dingy, but can be sanded, buffed, repainted, and repaired to look like new. For others, a total overhaul is the best option.
