Refinishing your hardwood floors yourself can be pretty daunting and those who are bent on making their floors look like new the do it yourself way may find it more convenient to just have the entire floor replaced, instead.

If you are planning to refinish your hardwood floors without calling in the professionals, it is advised that you buy tongue and groove materials so that you can easily snap them together. Buying pre-finished hardwood flooring will also save you a lot of time and effort.

What is the cost of re-finising hardwood floors?

The normal cost of refinishing hardwood floors around $1.25 to $4.00 for every square foot. If you bring in a professional, you stand to spend between $3 and $3.50 for every square foot on labor alone. So if this is an expense you wish to avoid, then refinishing your hardwood floor yourself is your best option. You do have to be ready for the task ahead, though.

The total cost of refinishing your hardwood floor varies depending on several factors.

What is your hardwood floor’s present condition? There are instances when, prior to the refinishing job itself, structural repairs have to be made. Such repairs will add to your expense. Your expenditure is also likely to rise further if the floor is covered by another type of flooring, like linoleum or carpet, as having these removed will add to the bill. You can choose to do this job yourself, but you won’t enjoy it.

The cost can also be affected by the kind of hardwood you have. Maple, for instance, will need professional tampering because it is relatively difficult to refinish. If you’re working with engineered hardwood floors, this will be easier, but you have to be careful not to accidentally sand through the material.

However, while it is costly to refinish a hardwood floor, it is well worth the investment. If maintained well, a floor’s finish can go for 40 years before you need to replace it again. If you’re planning to sell your property anytime soon, having nice and sturdy hardwood floors will help increase its appraised value, so you get your investment back in the long run.

Mike’s team was great. We had a very large project consisting of some carpentry and repainting the entire house. From start to finish they impressed me with their attention to detail and just overall work. Highly recommend.

I couldn't have asked for more. From the estimate to completion, Mike and his crew were top notch and professional. I just needed a few rooms painted but his price was fair and everything went according to plan. I recommend Mike's Painting to anyone looking for someone you can trust to do a job well done.

Mike and his crew were FANTASTIC. We called him, gave him the scope of the work, he gave us a very reasonable estimate on the spot, and had the crew start the project the following week. They painting my entire 2200 sq ft. house in TWO DAYS. Very efficient, quality work. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat! Mike was always very clear, patient, and nice. Best painters in Marietta, GA

Excellent service from start to finish. They replaced the drywall in my kitchen ceiling that has removed due to a water leak. They also repainted the ceiling and replaced the light fixture. It took them less than two hours to complete the entire job. Work area was clean and looked like nothing ever happened. Thank you!
