The process of screen and coat (or buff and coat) is quite different from sanding and refinishing. Refinishing is the process where all finish is removed and floor is sanded to reveal a new layer of raw wood. A screen and coat however is a one day process where wood floors are lightly buffed and a fresh layer of finish applied. Screen and coat is more cost effective than sanding and refinishing. A screen and coat will not remove deep scratches, stains, or dents. It is usually recommended for dull floors that are in good shape. Screen and coats should be done as maintenance every couple of years to floors that have been recently sanded.
