Q imported from our old site, Face Lift Floors: I would like to find out how much it might cost to refinish my floors after having some renovation done in my home. I added the total feet of the floor that needs to be done, but I’m not sure how to calculate the square footage.
Q: Your pictures look great and your website is very detailed! I have 4 rooms (dining, living, family, and office) that total 700 sq ft. 2 Are strip and 2 are parquet. We want to re-stain all 4 rooms to be the same. What would be the cost and how long would it take?
Q: I need to replace two pieces of hardwood flooring, due to some damage. How much would it cost to do this? I have spare pieces of the wood already for the job. The pieces that need to be replaced are almost in the centre of the room.
Q: What is a ball park figure for a hardwood repair man to replace one board?
Q: Is there a way to tell if the stain and polyurethane are compatible? I have heard that sometimes using ones that are not compatible will cause it to flake? I had a quote from a gentleman to lay about 1200sf and finish a total of 1500sf for $3700 with H**** brand stain or poly– I am not sure. Is this a good or bad price?
Q: I am looking into the purchase of a home that was built in 1895. Previous owners have covered the original hardwood floors with ceramic tile, which was then covered with floating floors. The surface is about 1200 sq. ft. I have been told by many people that this is a very difficult job (that I would leave to professionals).
Follow-up Comments: Right now I am dealing with a cash settlement issue to cover the damage. The contractor for the moving company claims department estimated the cost to sand & refinish approx 500 sq ft. would be roughly $600 with 3 coats of varathane, a cost that I guessed was a low-ball.
Q: I have an old house (80+) with 2″ boards on the ground and second floors. Much of it is in poor condition (gouges, gaps, nails that pop up, etc.) What is the cost involved in removing and relaying new hardwood?
Q: How much should it cost to refinish, sand, stain, 2 coats of poly a bleached hardwood floor: 36′ x 48′ room.
