Refinishing Hardwood Floors : What You'll Pay

Over years of use, the appearance of your wood floors will be diminished by the scuffs, scrapes and dullness that arise from everyday use. Hardwood floor refinishers sand your floors, removing the old finish and exposing new wood so that your floors are fully restored to their original beauty and luster.

Most hardwood floor refinishers price their services based on the size of the area of floor to be refinished. Prices typically range from $1.50 to $3.00 per square foot. This includes the cost of sealing off the doors and openings to areas being sanded with plastic sheeting, sanding floors to remove existing finish, any necessary minor wood repairs, staining and finishing the floors with polyurethane. Some refinishers use just 2 coats of polyurethane and charge extra for a third coat while others include 3 coats of sealant in their standard pricing. For floors covering 1,000 square feet, for example, the cost could range from $1,500 to $3,000.

You'll want to take note of the sanding system the floor refinisher uses. They'll likely use either a standard vacuum system or a 'dustless' system. A new generation of refinishing equipment has substantially reduced the mess associated with refinishing floors. The standard vacuum systems remove approximately 70% of dust from the air. Refinishing equipment manufacturers claim that 'dustless' systems remove in excess of 90%.

Price isn't everything. Having your floors re-finished can be a real hassle and, though they may add to the cost, there are a number of services that many hardwood floor re-finishers offer that can make the process easier on you.

Furniture moving: Before floors can be refinished, they must first be cleared of all furniture. You may decide to do this yourself, but most floor refinishing companies will offer this service as well. They'll both move the furniture prior to refinishing and then move it back after the finish has cured. Some charge for this based on a price per square foot ranging from: $0.25-$0.50. Others charge a flat rate of between $100 and $200, depending on the size of the area refinished.

Cleanup: After the refinishing is complete, you may find that dust has likely penetrated many of the areas of your home - even those far from the refinished floors. You should either plan on doing a lot of dusting or plan on hiring a maid service to do the extensive dusting that will be required. Additionally, some floor refinishers offer this service as well.
