Refinishing hardwood floors for your Everson home is a cost-effective way to restore your floor to its original condition without completely replacing the panels. We recommend homeowners refinish their floors every 20 years. This is roughly how long floors last until they begin showing signs of wear and tear. Here are some other pointers to keep in mind when refinishing your floors.
Refinishing Hardwood Floors in Everson Is NOT a DIY Project
Some homeowners may be tempted to tackle the project themselves, believing it’ll save them money. Refinishing your floors is not a DIY project; there are simply too many complications that can arise. For starters, the job requires commercial tools. You also need the training to use the tools properly so as not to cause further damage to the floor surface.
Find the Right Flooring Contractor
When looking for a flooring company, don’t automatically go with the company with the lowest price estimate. As the saying goes, you often get what you pay for. Research company websites, look up reviews and contact the company to request a reference or two.
Consider the Cost Beforehand
The cost of refinishing floors varies; most companies charge per square foot. The job entails sanding, staining, and applying multiple coats of finish. The cost on average ranges between $3 to $6 per square foot. If the cost is way below this range, then it probably comes at the cost of quality.
Plan for the Project Accordingly
Most refinishing projects take about three to five days to complete, depending on the size of the home. During the process, there may be excess amounts of dust and odors from the staining. For this reason, we recommend that homeowners make arrangements to stay at a hotel or at a nearby relative’s house. You do not have to be home when the contractors are working.
