Q: I need a sand/stain in my condo for an existing parquet floor. It is the lower level of a loft and is about 300 square feet. I am in need of this work and am having trouble finding a contractor.
A: I can understand why it would be difficult to find someone reliable to do this work. It is not your fault. Basically, condominiums can be a real pain. Speaking for myself, it is a big part of the job just moving all the equipment to the work area. Condominiums can have parking restrictions, elevator restrictions, work time restrictions etc., so that a person feels defeated almost before they begin. I don’t have a problem stopping work at 5 p.m. by then, I need a break. Parking and transport of tools, for me, is a bigger issue.
