How much do hardwood floor repairs and refinishing cost?
One of the nice benefits of having a hardwood floor is that when the finish starts to wear and looks worn, you have the option of refinishing it, and bringing it back to life. This process involves sanding down past the finish and any blemishes, and reapplying stain and finish. After refinishing the floor will look as good as new, for a fraction of the price of a new floor.
When you get an estimate for a hardwood floor refinishing project, there will be four main labor categories involved: preparation, sanding, staining, and finishing.
Factors that will affect the price of your refinishing or repair project:
- Size of your floor.
- Furniture that needs to be moved.
- When repairs are required. If a floor is too damaged, refinishing it won’t work. The floor has to be repaired before it is refinished, so the final outcome will be consistent across the floor.
- Removal of carpet and other flooring surfaces.
- Expertise of the flooring company. Even though you will sometimes be able to find companies who offer hardwood floor repairs or refinishing services at a low price, you will most likely get exactly what you pay for. You will get substandard work or jobs that take longer than they should. Fixing their mistakes can end up costing you more in the long run.
The price of refinishing or hardwood floor repairs is determined by the materials used, the equipment needed, and the number of hours of labor required to do the work. Call Day Flooring for an estimate on your flooring project.
