Urethane finishes will eventually show wear patterns from surface scratching. When traffic areas begin to look dull, it is time to recoat your floors. Re-coating is a one to two day process, and cost much less than sanding/refinishing. You should plan on recoating hardwood floors every 3 to 5 years depending on traffic patterns and wear. Do NOT wait until you wear through the finish to the bare wood or sanding may be required.
